That moment of welcoming your favourite style blogger of all time to your home town! Aimee Song, otherwise known as Song of Style, was in Toronto recently to promote her new capsule collection with eLUXE.ca. I had the pleasure of attending an intimate meet and greet with loyal fans and fashion bloggers alike, where we had the chance to shop the collection, sip some bubbly, and chat with Aimee.

When I think about the brand BCBGMAXAZRIA, I immediately think about extravagant, formal gowns that are great for special occasions like prom, red carpet events, birthdays and office cocktail parties. Visiting their first-ever spring/summer 2014 media preview proved me wrong as I became acquainted with easy to wear pieces from their latest runway, ready to wear and their signature Hervé Léger by Max Azria collections over a delicious breakfast.
