The IT jacket??

Hello Loves!

I am BACK! Woot woot!!! Toronto Fashion Week was a blast. It was perfect to catch up with the beautiful people I call my SQUAD, and introduce new members haha (we accept all applicants). Of course the fashion was ON POINT, not only on the runway, which side note Mikael Kale was my show… totally feeling it! But the street style too… everywhere you looked something creative and chic… colours were big this season, not a lot of black. Which brings me to the subject of this blog post.

The IT jacket.

When picking out my clothing for Toronto Fashion Week, I normally steer away from high street stores, opting for vintage or designer items. This season however I couldn’t resist Zara. I literally needed EVERYTHING, so I practically bought everything (my poor credit card). My fav purchase though, a bright yellow faux leather jacket with a killer rockstar feel. It is so chic, expensive looking, and fits like a glove, and with a $69 price tag… it was a steal!

Problem? Well EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE wore this jacket (I think I even saw a dog rocking one). It is the IT jacket of the season, and I can totally understand why, I mean duh I bought and wore it too! However fashion week did turn into a little ‘who wore it best’, and I can’t really determine who won… everyone styled it perfectly.

In regards to my styling, I wanted to bring 70’s into the modern age. I wore a lace up blouse from H&M and paired it with a pair of stripped culottes also from Zara. No I didn’t add a pair of platforms and a fringe bag, instead I wore a pair of amazing iridescent Jimmy Choo’s and an AMAZING soft vintage ‘chocolate bar’ Chanel purse from Love That Bag (this purse is still available!
