NYC Weekend

This past weekend I was chosen to attend the Teen Vogue Fashion University seminar in NYC. It was an amazing weekend, and I got to listen to seminars from Anna Wintour, Vera Wang, editors of Teen Vogue, some famous bloggers, and many other talented professionals in the fashion industry. I was so honoured to attend this seminar, and loved meeting the hundreds of other attendees at this event.

Besides attending the seminar, some fine dining and shopping was done. Duh. I love going to NYC. I'm always so sad to leave, but hopefully I will call it my home some time in the future.

LINE S/S 2010

Last night Heritage Court was filled with Toronto fashionistas, designers, and celebrities sipping on wine, getting their hair or makeup done, and sampling free products. Located in the CNE, LG Fashion Week is off to a great start. I got the pleasure of seeing LINE Knitwear's show, and I was thoroughly impressed with their Spring/Summer collection.

Filled with pastels, neutrals, tie-dye prints, and of course lots of knits, LINE succeeded in creating a beautiful collection. All of the pieces were perfectly styled with wedge sandals (some with socks), high ponytails, and bangles. All in all, I give the collection 4.5 stars and will definitely look out for it in stores.

Diva Designer

My latest obsession is American Retro. After visiting Carbon this weekend and seeing their new American Retro merchandise, I fell in love. Although it is a bit pricey, it is sooo worth it. AR was founded in 2002 by Parisian brothers David and Gregory Pariente. Their collection is made with high quality fabrics, and each piece has intricate detailing and creativity. American Retro is available online at Shopbop, or if you live in Toronto at Carbon or Andrew's. If you live in the States, it is also available at Bloomingdales.

Techie Girl

Marc by Marc Jacobs does iPads

I've always wanted an iPad, but now I NEED one. This MJ logo-printed case is so adorable, and I love all four colours. It's great that Marc by Marc Jacobs, and other designers too (see here), are up to date on their technology accessories; It makes technology that much more fun for fashionistas. 

For $58, you get a protective-trendy-designer case. Not too bad.

The iPad is officially on my Chanukah list, along with this case in pink. Thanks mom and dad.

In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month, here are some items that will help you show your support for such a worthy cause. Everyone knows someone who has breast cancer, and it's important that everyone is aware of this month. Whether you donate, run for a cause, or simply wear pink, any support is helpful.

Sparkles and Socks

I was so excited when my mom found this fur shawl. I pinned it together to make a vest, and have worn it with jeans and cargos. It's a super fun piece, and keeps me warm in Toronto's chilly weather.
