L'Oreal Fashion Week

"Well hello...I'm late to the party am I?" well some of us have to work & can't attend Toronto's Fashion Week, boo!hoo! And of course no invites for me, however, there are a few events open to the public. If you can't be there physically there's no better way to see a few collections via the Internet. Toronto's L'Oreal Fashion Week runs from October 20-25, showcasing some of Canada's finest fashion designers and there was a show from Spanish fashion-chain stores Mango, featuring Penelope Cruz's sister Monica Cruz's collection (I wouldn't go as far & say Monica Cruz is a designer but the Cruz sisters have influenced the latest seasons at Mango and have worked with their in-house design team).

One of the shows that I was excited to see (online of course) was Pink Tartan's Spring '09 collection, which had a 60's glam vibe. Loving the return to glam!

Check out a few images, enjoy!
P.S-Just want to add (by no means am I a professional stylist or claim to be but I do love fashion & hey that's why I have my blog) I'm not feeling the styling of these outfits. I love the pieces & grasp the 60's vibe but something is off...First, I love the look of these shoes BUT do think that there could've been a better choice. My choice would've been a rounded-toe, patent leather, nude platform heel. Lastly, either a skinny or wide belt would've looked great on any of these outfits. Of course anyone has their own interpretation of what eventually their desired look is.

And for a glimpse of Mango's show:


  1. That looks SO cool. I can't tell you how much I want to be at a Fashion Week... maybe as Tim Gunn's guest...

    I can dream, right?

  2. love the clothes. HATE the shoes. they are terrible! I'm afraid of going to any fashion week event bcause I am so unfashionable. Most of my clothes are from Target and Kohls. LOL

  3. Elvira, some of my best pieces are actually from the line George from Wallmart. I just mix it up!


Comments are lovely! Thank you for stopping by beauty parler, the online powder room...
