It’s been awhile..

Friends!

How can we begin to apologize for our absence? Telling you we’ve both been busy would be an understatement. We haven’t had much of a social life, and have had such a hard time even making time to see each other! The summer weather was hiding from us over here in Toronto for the longest time making photo ops difficult to schedule, and working overtime has become the norm. We’ve been grinding as much as we could in preparation for this trip we’re taking! If any of you follow us on Twitter, you’ll know that Julie and I are going to Paris & Barcelona this month! We actually leave in a few days! It is our first time to both cities, and we are overwhelmingly excited to share our experiences with you!

Working so much has definitely put its wear on us, and we can’t wait to have some much-needed time off, and get back to posting! With less than a week away before our trip, like any girl, we have been constantly thinking of what to wear, when to wear it, what to bring, where to go, what to see, what to skip. Luggage, beauty essentials, tickets, boarding passes, passports, double-check tickets, get nails done, get hair done…whoo. Add on a full on work week, studying, eating, gymming, emails, meetings….and somewhere we manage to fit in sleep. Julie and I miss seeing each other more often, and the both of us are looking forward to spending a lot of gal time together on vacation. This is a trip of a lifetime that we have been talking about forever, and it’s finally here.

Just wanted to drop a note to let you know that we’re sticking around, and we miss you. How are you?!

More posts are on their way! TTYL

lots of love – j&k

J & K at Toronto Fashion Week – David Dixon F/W 2013

30 Mar

Loves!

This was our first time at Toronto Fashion Week, our first time attending a fashion show of this magnitude, and our first time really getting out there and talking to SO many bloggers, stylists, buyers, merchandisers, and just down right amazing people! Such a rush!

We were lucky enough to attend the shows on both Day 2 and Day 5, thanks to a very good friend of ours Catherine. After a bit of a taste, you can only imagine how zealous we were that we weren’t able to be in attendance the entire week. None the less, here are a few shots of us at the tents! Out of the designers we saw, one of the first and also one of our favourites was David Dixon!

David Dixon was all about women empowerment! The show began with a video where a woman was frowned upon when making a comment in regards to the gentlemen’s conversation. Showcasing that women should not speak for we do not know half of what men know. Men are smarter than us but then the screen shatters and says ‘bullshit!’ It was probably one of the best openings I (J) saw from all the shows that we watched. The one aspect that really popped from Dixon’s show was the neck feature of all the feathers! I absolutely adored it! I could really see this being a trend for next fall. I know I’ll be rocking it! 🙂

David Dixon’s show was definitely very empowering. The music was enticing (insert Run The World by Beyonce here) and the models looked and felt so comfortable and sexy in his clothing. The strong lines of blacks and whites, the pop of cobalt blue, and who can forget about those stunning crystalized accessories in everything from earrings, ear cuffs, necklaces and bracelets. Such a fantastic finishing touch to these sophisticated, yet edgy looks. Here are a few shots of us enjoying the tents after the show 🙂
