Hello Darlings, “It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” Nothing describes the joy of those first few days of March than that quote from Great Expectations. In true Canadian fashion after a few above zero and sunny days, we joyfully begin to pack away our winter layers. The wonders that spring cleaning does to a lady’s self esteem when the “skirts an bare legs season” finally approaches. That very moment when you finally pack away the boots and pull out your favorite pair of pumps — pure bliss!
This week also marks Fall/Winter 2016 collection presentations at the Toronto Fashion and as every big event in our lives, looking and feeling great becomes a priority. Not to say that any other day it is not but it is during those certain occasions where attention to detail is given.Through the duration of one week, it is a none stop action from shows to dinners and cocktail parties. To feel great or attractive when running on few hours of sleep and fueled by few too many cups of americano is nearly impossible. Typically when preparing for fashion week I try to simplify as many things as possible. From a visit to a hair salon for a touch up, to getting freshly done mani and pedi, to eyelash extensions and finally a sunless tan. Essentially it is a maintenance mode ritual!
