Carrying on with my distinct excitement for what was making it's way down the runways last week here in Toronto during World MasterCard Fashion Week..... Here I introduce to you my favourite luxury, dressy and formalwear menswear designer in Canada... HD HOMME... One of the only designers in our country to not only take menswear to the next level but not be afraid to experiment with it. I feel like everyone here does luxury formalwear so basic and they take pride in it.. They say it's all in the details, but everyone's doing the details.. Why I love HD HOMME so much is because yes, they do everything right.. They do it down to the details, the impeccable tailoring, the clean lines, the perfect finishes.. Yes, they do that all.. But then Hussein Dhalla, designer for HD HOMME, taks it to the next level by experimenting with the various aspects of menswear and taking it to the next level.. The proportions, the textiles, the prints, the colours and textures and you know... The sheer tank tops, and #YASSS... Those DEEP, DEEP, DEEP, DEEEEEP V's... You already know I was basically convulsing over what I was seeing when those extreme deep v's made their way down the runways... I personally can not wait to get myself in as many pieces from HD HOMME's Spring/Summer 2015 collation as possible!!!! Stay tuned!!!!!!!!

Every fashion week there is a show that just leaves the crowd in a constant awe, in a state of shock, suspense, and just a full feeling of #YASSSSSSS HONEYYYYY!!!!.... No questions asked, this, and every other season Mikael D has undoubtedly been the most opulent, detailed and just wow-factor-full designer to bless the runways of World MasterCard Fashion Week with his designs. His attention to detail, the glamour, and the overall LIFE he puts into his garments keep the crowd in a constant OUUU & AHHHH as each look passes the other.. Like.. You want to talk #CoutureOverdose well here we go! This season was no different from any other, there are crystals and embellishments, mini dresses and silk organza, tulle and all that good stuff to last you a lifetime.. It's just so cool to have a designer of this level constantly come home to Toronto and showcase HIS support for our fashion industry because realistically Mikael is an international designer more then a local.... That being said, on a side note, doesn't all this #FANCY (Charli XCX voice) clothing just make you think of gold, diamonds, glamour and some of that sexy but sweet Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy fragrance?... Well it did for me, I was like, hi.. Mikael D runway couture dress, let me spray you with the perfect scent! #NEXTSEASONSSCENT!
So as you know I am an avid supporter of beautiful designers and boutiques in Toronto and it is with great pleasure I present to you the news that our very own Powder Toronto Evening & Bridal Boutique will be exclusively holding the first ever Jorge Manuel Bridal trunk show this coming NOV 14 and 15th...

Evidently I am still not over the Alexander Wang x H&M collection.. Seriously I think this is the coolest collaboration to date for H&M! That being said, enjoy these videos I captured and edited from my point-of-view at the Alexander Wang for H&M fashion show last week in Harlem, New York!! #YASSSBISHHHYASSS
YES!!! YES!!! YAAAAAASS!! Let's take a moment to pause.. YES YES YES I was completely aware.. But how could I not! I finally got my hands on those all white monochromatic Dr. Marten's I've been lusting over since I first discovered them.. When? Like a year and a half ago or something.. Anyways, #IDidIt.. I gave you the light hunnie haha!!! As you know I am always tapped into my dark side.. Shout to to my Juicy Couture Viva La Noir fragrance for making me smell like I feel. Sweet but sexy haha! Yes, I do wear women's perfume #WhatYouKnowAboutThat!!.. But yeah, so me being all dark and demonic as I normally am, it was actually quite refreshing to dive into the opposite side of the spectrum and rock this look, a fresh white jacket, white leather pants, boots and my signature oversized wayfarer style sunglasses!! Now let's talk about what really counts! The fashion.. Yesterday I saw some great shows I can't wait to share but the stick-out show of the day for me was Matthew Gallagher! You can see a couple snaps from his collection below, I can't wait to share the rest with you because literally miss hunnie.. I was seriously having a #CoutureOverdose.. Ou child!!! He gave that runway #LYFE...
So let me tell you all about my HotelTonight story... Some months back, not to many, I was in Paris for fashion week! One of the most chicest but busiest times for me and anyone else in my industry.. It was the last night and I had messed up on some booking details and didn't have a hotel.. Not having a hotel during Paris Fashion Week means a) bus shelter or b) bus shelter.. Hotels (at least the nice ones) are sold out from door to door.. Basically it's #HELL.. I was so afraid and didn't know what to do and am not comfortable staying at hostels or other places that are not super secure, I am a little petite person you know, so I like to stay safe and refrain from allowing myself to fall into circumstances that might not be so..... appealing.. That being said, my friend said Mike said "don't you have HotelTonight!?" IM like oh god here we go what is it? He told me about it and I downloaded it right away.. Because i was desperate, didn't know what to expect and because again..
