Fall boots for all feet!

I love, love tall knee high boots. Sadly, every shopping trip ends with me bootless and super sad. Why? Because I have wide calves, and can’t find shoes to fit! The ones that do fit, I end up buying just because they fit, and not because I love them.

Enter Addition Elle. Their new fall collection features boots with a wider sole, various calf widths and increased ankle widths. You’re bound to find the perfect fitting pair! Their new fall collection offers 13 different styles, in sizes 7 to 11 ranging from flirty ballerina flats, edgy motorcycle style booties to tall (my favourite!) boots.  The most expensive pair is $169, and their super cute flats are only$24.99. Check them out here!

Alternative Fashion Week



Tonight is the kick-off of Alternative Fashion and Arts Week (FAT for short)! I’ll be attending on Tuesday, so check back to see my post about it! Visit their website at http://www.fashionarttoronto.ca or read on to learn more about it.

The [FAT] attitude comes to life again this year at our new festival location – a former industrial warehouse located at 213 Sterling Road – Toronto’s new up-and-coming arts & design district. Models will stomp their heels on an 80 foot-long runway featuring 52 innovative fashion collections from top designers within Canada and abroad.
[FAT] has an international reputation for presenting and discovering cool new talent, for instance: Wesley Badanjak, Heidi Ackerman, Martin Lim and Jasper Garvida. Now in its 7th year, |FAT| has presented over 1,000 designers and artists since it first launched in 2005.

Goody Double Wear Elastics

A little bit ago I got to try these really cool hair elastics from Goody. When I put elastics on my wrist, they always tend to be really old (with elastic peeking through) and strangely, neon orange. With these elastics, I was stylishly saved. They have a curved textured metallic that makes them look like bracelets. Instant style, very little effort. They come in lots of different colours, and they also have a headband version that doubles as a necklace!

One lucky reader will get a chance to try them out! Enter below for your chance to win.

Soïa & Kyo FW12

Ah, Fashion Week. Toronto fashionistas get to preen and be seen. What could be better? Last night, I checked out Soïa & Kyo, the brain child of Ilan Elfassy. This Montreal line gets its name from Ilan’s admiration of Japanese culture, and loosely stands for “beginning today”. The 2012-2013 collection features fur trim, bold cuts and structured hoods.
Models toted bundled blankets held by leather straps and donned fur trapper hats. The colours were mostly muted greys, khakis and browns, with a smattering of reds and mustard tones. Check it out!
