You’ve heard of her name, you’ve seen her on major fashion television and you surely recognize those iconic blunt bangs. She is THE Jeanne Beker and she has paired up with The Shoe Company to give your wardrobe some flare. What a better way to celebrate then to hold the launch at Toronto’s new mall! The Stockyards Shopping Centre is going to be jam-packed with major retailers to feed your shoapholic needs when it’s final touches are put in place. I had a chance to preview the exclusive Jeanne Beker x SCO collection and meet the legend herself. Shoes, handbags, and sunglasses…totally swooned.

Is everyone still recovering as World MasterCard Fashion Week sprinkled the last of its magic fashion dust on Toronto on Friday? I was incredibly fortunate enough to attend the studio and runway shows of superbly talented designers. The last seven days definitely brought all the fashionistas to the yard and provided some serious eye candy. There’s quite a bit to say about the entire week but here are a few of my favourite trendiest highlights for this Fall/Winter 2014: Read More

Wedluxe is #Fabuluxe

When I was asked to cover the Wedluxe wedding show for urbanebloc, I wasn’t sure what to expect. If there was anything that I did hope to see, it was blown away in a matter of seconds. Starting off from the luxurious rose covered ceiling to the massive map detailing all the vendors within the event area, it was an incredible experience from beginning to end.

I brought a friend who was recently engaged and planning to marry this year, and it was such a great experience! She was able to speak to the vendors one on one, and provide personal recommendations and it was a huge relief. Navigating the grounds of WedLuxe is no easy feat and I’d highly recommend planning to spend at a minimum of three hours which could lend itself to an entire day excursion at the Wedluxe show. In between, we sipped champagne and sampled treats from vendors, resulting in a major sugar high.
