On thursday night, I got to attend the last night of shows for western Canada's fashion week. I brought my brothers ex, who is pretty much my sister (I've known her since I was 12). It was really exciting for both of us. This time around the place was packed and it seemed like they were really organized. Of course we got to chat with all the other awesome bloggers which was fun! It's so funny how nervous I was to meet all of them, they're such sweet people.
I snapped waaay too many pictures, and have tried to include just a few favorites from each collection to give you a taste of what it was like. There were a lot of really gorgeous clothes on the runway. This actually completely surpassed my expectations, Serendipity had me wanting every single piece that came out. Not only were the designs amazing but the hair/makeup was perfect. Bold red lips, feather earrings and on the models faces, some of the models carried antique bird cages as well. So amazing!!
I'm a sucker for a pattern, what can I say?
Sheryl commented on this line saying it was very "Gothic Jackie O", I loved that description. It would have fit her daughter perfectly, shes a bit of a goth girl with a soft spot for this kind of dressing.

My favorite dresses, the feathers are gorgeous. The dress on the right with the deep V in the back is absolutely my favorite piece of the night. I am in love, I want to wear it to every christmas event next season
Jessica Halabi Definitely my other favorite collection of the evening. Wonderful pieces. The dying technique she used is fantastic and that coat has an amazing shape.
I had issues picking out an outfit that day, even for work I changed about 6 times. Just one of those days I suppose? I couldn't find a coat to wear? Blazer looked too buisnessy, everything else fit weird. But I settled on casual denim, which was alright. Just one of those days I suppose when everything looks good on the hanger but just doesn't quite come together. Me, Janis, Vickie, Andrew and Marie!
