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 🙂

Better early than never…wait

23 Oct

Friends!

Let me start off by apologizing for my absence. I have been pretty sick for around 2 weeks with a terrible cold which then turned into a throat infection. I completely lost my voice and I have been on the road to recovery and back to being myself! It was fate that my voice came back to me, and I was feeling much better just in time for me to celebrate my birthday yesterday. My birthday is actually in December, and to make quite a long story short – I decided last year, after many years of stressful planning, booking time off, and freezing cold nights waiting in line at a nightclub in the middle of December that I was going to celebrate my birthday away from the holiday season this year. Not only is December a very busy time of the year for myself (and everyone I know), but it’s proven to be a very expensive one as well. My beau’s birthday is on December.4th followed by mine on the 10th, and Christmas is not too far behind after that.

I spent some time searching for the perfect venue to have dinner with some of my closest friends at Local Restaurant & Lounge was the perfect choice. The atmosphere was exactly what I had envisioned with beautiful lighting, classic, clean design, mixed with elements such as a brick wall backdrop, leather seating and dark wooden fixtures. The menu had a great, simple selection that catered to every taste; might I add that the food was absolutely delicious. (J and I had the steak!) Shortly after midnight, the dinner tables are cleared out and made way for a dancefloor. Before our eyes, this restaurant turned into one of the best “clubs” we had ever been to together. The music was amazing, the crowd was eclectic with everyone from young professionals, to your industry folk who drop in for a bottle of grey goose, down to your up and coming 20 somethings who frequent Local on a Saturday night for a good time. It was definitely a birthday to remember and a spot I plan to revisit!
