Quick Update

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to put a quick update out there, for those of you who have been wondering where i've disappeared to !

This season I was thrilled to be brought on to the Western Canada Fashion Week team as the Blogger Liaison, where my tasks included organizing our blogger attendees, running the official WCFW blog, sending out material to some of our fabulous sponsors, and filling in other odd tasks. As a result of juggling those tasks with being a full time student, I haven't had a chance to get any coverage up on here yet. I'm hoping to get a summary/highlights post up here sometime this week.

Another thing I'm looking forward to starting is a new series on here- Manners Mondays. I am passionate about etiquette and manners, and it's something I would love to share. Look for that in the upcoming weeks. Also, I will be posting the 22 before 22 list I created for my birthday in August, so you can follow along with my journey throughout the year. It's going to be exciting!

Stanley Carroll- Fall 2012

Last Friday I had the delight of starting of my fashion week experience at the showing of Stanley Carroll's Fall 2012 collection. As usual, it was an extremely wearable and visually interesting collection. I loved the use of plaids and pattern mixing, as well as the diagonals and a-line shapes. My favourite aspect of the collection was the perfect use of ruching on the women's dresses perfectly accentuating all the right curves!

All photos were graciously provided by Kelly Rosborough, and you can see more of his pictures from the event here.

Lately loving- Autumn

I'm really excited to be going back to classes tomorrow! I had an amazing time at my job this summer but I am looking forward to my last year of university! I had a bit of money tucked aside for a back-to-class shopping treat this summer, and I had a lot of fun shopping this weekend, and really made an effort to find pieces that were smart additions to my closet. One of the things I bought was my first chambray shirt, in a billowy tunic cut, and it is so comfortable! I'm in love with its year-round versatility. I've been trying to add a lot of classic pieces to my wardrobe that I will be able to dress up or down, and that will be able to make a transition from english major to marketing student, to career girl. I've definitely fallen head over heels for button up blouses!

What are your fall picks?
