Bootights are exactly what they sound like. A pair of comfy, stylish tights with socks on the feet to keep you warm!
They come in tons of different patterns and colours. They also come in two different lengths, for ankle boots or knee highs! I was lucky to be able to try these tights out. I struggled a little bit to get my foot inside, but after that first time I haven’t had any problems. They are super comfy, and great quality. I can’t think of a more perfect pair of tights for the winter or fall months. They come in a range of sizes (plus size too) and are available in Canada at www.bootights.ca Happy shopping!
If I could live my ideal dream wardrobe, I’d be dressed in Kate Spade, Jason Wu and a tiny bit of Chanel. Alas, I am not rich. So it cheers me up when my fav brands create lower priced lines for younger clientele (like Kate Spade & Saturday).
Jason Wu has paired with Nordstrom to create Miss Wu. This lower priced collection will launch on January 7th. Each piece ranges from $195 to $795, so it’s not exactly cheap, but it’s more affordable than Jason Wu. Jason Wu says, “The Miss Wu girl is, on the other hand, she’s a little more worn in, a little grittier, her hair is a little messier, her makeup might be from the night before.” I like that, and love the feminine look to the line.

I was incredibly lucky to be sitting up close (front row!) of the Arthur Mendonça show at World Master Card Fashion Week. This collection featured vibrant colours, sharp cuts and an interesting kimono/obi like influence on his dresses. I really enjoyed it and took a ton of photos. Check it out!
I really enjoyed the Rachel Sin show at World Master Card Fashion Week! Her collection was inspired by 1950s shapes. Blazers in black and beige with surprising delicate lace accents and unique cut outs featured prominently in her collection.
Backstage, Maybelline worked hard to create Rachel Sin’s retro Mad Men look.
Grace Lee is the head makeup artist. She created a feline look, doubling up the liner on the lashline and in the crease. She used Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner to create this accentuated, ladylike eye.
Check out her beauty desk! PS: That blue mascara is a super cool new mascara that will debut in January. Apparently it’s a game changer!
Jorge Joao of Redken created the sleek retro bobs that you see above!
If you read this blog, I think it’s safe to say that it’s no surprise to find out that I love Kate Spade. She’s launching a brand new brand called Saturday. This brand is for a younger demographic (25-35….me!) and is meant to capture the spirit of Saturday, 7 days a week. New items will be released each Saturday in-store. The new line will include dresses, jackets, jeans, t-shirts, sweaters, handbags, jewelry, watches,shoes, home décor items and more. These items will be about 50% cheaper than Kate Spade New York. Think: clothing ($90), handbags ($130), jewelry ($30) and shoes ($85).
You’ll have to wait a bit to get your hands on it though. Saturday will launch Spring 2013 in the US online and in Feb 2013 for Japan (online and flagship). As for Canada…well, we’re left out as usual. Hopefully, with the arrival of Kate Spade New York in Yorkdale Mall next month, this will change. If you are savvy shipping things from the US, fab.com will offer an early access sale sometime next year before the US launch! I can’t wait!
I was invited to go backstage with MAC Cosmetics and Aveda during the Collections! Wow, is it ever busy back there. I spent some time watching a M∙A∙C makeup artist get a model ready for the Label show and explain the vision for the show. The model was prepped to have glowing, natural “California girl” skin. This was achieved by using MAC Care Blends Essential Oils and MAC Taupe Shape Powder Blush.
My favourite part of the look was the bright pop of colour that was added at the end. Each model got a bright, almost neon orange on the lips or eyes.
Aveda was backstage styling hair. The styles that they were creating were sleek rope braids.
Tips Nail Bar were also on hand to give the girls stick on half glitter manicures. They looked great!
Going backstage was lots of fun, thanks MAC & Aveda! I’ll be going backstage during Fashion week too.Can’t wait!
