Handle With Care

leafpurseRFB1
Sustainable fashion – is there such a thing? Luckily within the past few years more and more sustainable brands have been popping up. I was quite impressed when I heard about Viahera. These bags are handmade by women in the Philippines who were victims of the typhoon Haiyan. These women are provided with employee benefits and each purchase of a bag helps to send a child to school. These bags are created with completely natural materials, consisting of pandan leaves, upcycled mahogany, organic cotton and repurposed leather – so every part of these bags will naturally biodegrade when their lifespan is over, leaving no toxic or polluting fibres behind. These one-of-a-kind bags are available for purchase here in Saskatoon, along with many other sustainable products at the Viahera storefront. You’ll be sure to find quite a few other great stores in the area as well!

Purple Rain

I was so excited when I found this purple suede jacket at my local thrift store. I wish the items I thrifted came with pictures of how the original owners wore them.

Midnight Blue

2016tiaranromanoff-10
Here is another one of the outfits I put together for my feature on the Sasktel blog. I am notorious for wearing black outfits – I accessorize to keep them interesting! This leather jacket is probably one of the best purchases I’ve made! I’m keeping it local with incorporating designs from Laurie Brown & Hunt of Hounds, both located in Canada. Thank you to Nicole Romanoff  for your photography!

Socks and Heels

outdoor19
Back at last! I have been so busy and caught up in my studies recently but I am almost done term one of this year! The inspiration behind this outfit was watching the Park Luxe fashion show a year ago – some of the models were wearing socks and heels! I adored it, however the people I was sitting beside did not seem to fancy this trend as much as I did. So I was hesitant to wear that combination for the longest time until I realized, if I was inspired then what do I have to lose? So here I am in socks and heels and loving every moment of it!
Thanks to Ashley of Live Laugh Love Photography for the photography!

Fall Shades

I thought it was appropriate to post this today, as this might be the last of fall in Saskatoon. I am joined here by Cam, a friend who wanted to help add some Men’s fashion to the blog. It is truly all about the layering. As many points of interest you bring into the outfit, without it being overwhelming, is key.
Huge thank you to Josh Campillos for the photography.

PARKLUXE 2015

DSC_8612
I was very lucky to attend PARKLUXE for a second year in a row, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I love how this is an event where our local fashion community can come together, and we can all appreciate and celebrate Canadian designers’ creations! I loved meeting and talking to other bloggers, as well as with the designers, and lusting over all their pieces. This event not only brings awareness to our Canadian designers’ amazing talent, but is also informative about whats hot right now and up-and-coming trends.
Speaking of which, here are the runway looks:

First, lets talk details! I loved how the pastel eyeshadows popped against the natural makeup. The little braids in the ponytails were also a nice detail! The makeup and hair was really inspiring, I cannot wait to try out those looks on myself.
Second, how proud am I of all the talented designers? These pieces were all breathtaking. Tonight was incredible – thanks for having me PARKLUXE!

Drowning in Laurie Brown

Tiara (NRomanoff)-25
I am excited to show you Laurie Brown’s Fall 2015 Knit Collection! This collaboration was captured by Nicole Romanoff of Nicole Romanoff Photography! I have always admired Laurie’s creativity, and all the unique and gorgeous pieces she creates. Laurie knitted these pieces with comically long knitting needles, and the bulky knit patterns that result are quite beautiful (not to mention extremely warm and comfortable)! These pieces created a high-end fashion look, I almost felt like I was doing a shoot for Vogue!
