VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK {DAY 5} RECAP

Goldie was on-trend street style for the cool girl.

I was blown away by Renata Buzzo's beautiful, romantic gowns donned by graceful models. They induced within my mind images of swans, or angels of a lost era.

Oscar Mendoza paired structured blazers with fun patterns and colours.

Clara Martin's school boys wore knitted shorts and letterman jackets. Her collection was caught within that period of adolescence and youthfulness.

Laura Laval seduced us with simplicity.

Thanks for waiting a whole month, guys. At least we're still in the same season, am I right? I kept putting off editing these photos because of schoolwork. Plus, it was my birthday last Wednesday. I'm finally 21.

REVIEW MaskerAide's 'Detox Diva'

Hey guys, here's a short review to tide you over until I'm able to publish the last couple VFW posts. I've been absolutely swamped with readings, essays, and working on myself. Yeah, that's right, I'm still trying to figure things out in my life. And so a nice facial mask session is much needed.

Tiffany from MaskerAide graciously offered me an opportunity to review three of their masks. I chose Detox Diva, Weather Warrior, and Beauty Rest'ore from their selection of six masks in total.

I tried the Detox Diva yesterday and my skin does feel hydrated and refreshed today. I never buy sheet masks but I realize now that they're definitely less mess and quicker application than my usual masks from a tube or a jar. Like all MaskerAide products, the Detox Diva is $6. It smells good and feels good on my skin. I say, if you have six bucks, give it a try. They're based in Canada so the package arrived pretty fast, which made me happy.


The masks are free of negative ingredients like parabens, mineral oils, and glycerins, and full of healthy ingredients like argan oil and vitamins.

Thanks to MaskerAide for the nice gift! I'll try out the Weather Warrior next week.

Kelseyanna and the boys.
Just being really cute, y'all.
Just had my first midterm! Aack, two essay questions worth 11% each, and I had no clue how to answer them. Plus, missed two classes this morning because I was out all night. My poor liver. More importantly, my poor wallet. Runway recaps coming up very soon woo!

VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK {DAY 2} RECAP






Nyoluoch played with colours and textures, both bold and almost gaudy. The collection was fun party attire for the adventurous.





Rebekah Adams adhered to warm earth tones to produce a ready-to-wear collection for the modern working woman. The burnt orange gown was my favourite: simple, sophisticated, and sexy.









Santa Clara blew me away with its ethereal gowns: long, flowing hemlines and well-placed bling. So shiny. So beautiful. If I were a mermaid princess, I would wear Santa Clara to my debutante ball. Now that's saying something.








Dawson & Deveraux made her clothing quirky and fun, choosing to use asymmetrical hemlines and strange proportions.












And Evan Clayton closed the day with DEATHPROOF. His concept for the collection was definitely The Ultimate Bad Bitch. The heavy use of fur tails in provocative places on the body and the simple silhouettes caught my eye. I loved the pop of abstraction as a model walked down the runway wearing a gigantic red robe and sunglasses, clearly enjoying the spotlight. I apologize for my blurry photographs; I was too busy clapping and shouting my admiration much like the entire audience.

And that's all for Day 2, folks! If you want to use my images, please give me credit. Stick around for upcoming posts VFW What I Wore Pt. 2 and What I Wore Pt. 3, as well as recaps of the designers for Day 4 and 5.
