My 3 Fashion Week Essentials

July 31, 2016


20 more days till it all goes down and I'm counting every minute of it! It will be our third time at the Montreal Fashion and Design Festival - it became our yearly favourite city escape since it brings together all our favourite things: fashion, music and delicious food. So what does a fashionista need to pack to make the most out the red carpet...besides her photographer husband...and her media pass?



1. An awesome outfit. Fashion Week is THE time to let your freak flag fly high, or at least that's what I'm planning. I'm going through a serious pink phase atm, so my pants will totes match my hair and it will be fabulous in a unicorn chic kind of way.  If any other of you mythical fashionista creatures plan to be around, please come say hi - we can all be super awesome together.



2. Flawless skin. I'm trusting Vichy and Avène to make my pores non-existent in three weeks. I picked up the Vichy BB cream just last week and it was almost like discovering life on other planets. Who knew that a little tube of makeup can easily fix my "6am undead eye circles and hungry" look? Also lets just take a minute to be thankful for thermal spring water in a can on those hot humid summer days.



3. Killer accessories. I clutch, therefore I am. I scored this pastel blue beauty while wondering the sunny streets of Barcelona and it immediately screamed Fashion Week to me. It's easy to match with anything, yet classic enough to make a statement. It will work wonders with my oversized Born Pretty sunglasses, which I might or might not wear on the red carpet (depending on how successful I am at vanquishing aforementioned dark eye circles).

Have a brilliant day!
