FALL FRIDAY CASUAL FROM DAY TO NIGHT: OVERSIZED SWEATER AND PANTS
Because it is Friday and you are ready to kick it after a long week at work. Wish i could say the same.

During my corporate days, when it came to fall, the cold weather had always meant one thing and one thing alone for me - Stay in, stay home, cozy up on the couch with a bowl of soup or a hot cup of tea, read a book, watch reruns of Friends, catch up on some HBO series, watch some chick flick movies until i fall asleep. Oh, i guess i should add, that always happened usually when i was very single and NOT ready mingle. Maybe if i had put in some more efforts into my "Casual Friday" outfits it would have motivated me to want to hang out more with friends after work.

For me, the "Dress Down Friday" concept at work which is also known as a "Casual Friday" is a chance to merge your fun stylish side with your business side, but without forgetting you are still dressing for work....well until..

This outfit was inspired by the fact that after work on Fridays, anything can happen-
1. Sometimes co-workers may want to hang out for some happy hour at a bar.
2. Girlfriends may want to meet up for dinner to catch up.
3. Your best friend maybe waving a ticket to one the best comic night or open mic nights at one your favorite bars in your face.
4. It is Fashion week in some cities like Toronto, it may be time for you to honor that invite to a fashion show.
5. The ex, the boy friend or the hubby decides to be spontaneous and wants to scoop you up for a special evening  after work.

I think is a great look to take you from work mode to fun mode easily without changing a thing. It is clean enough for work, but at the same time chic and stylish enough for some fun night without compromise. If it feels right, it looks right.

What better time to wear some of those over sized sweaters and pants we've been pushing aside other than this time of the year when it is getting even colder. Styling over sized pieces together can be an easy hit or miss, but it isn't always a bad idea if both pieces compliment each other well. I have always been a bit intimidated by this kind of look because of my petite frame, but it shows a pretty mature side of me, and like i always say, having the right attitude helps make the outfit.

I chose to report the third night of World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto from outside the venue - David Pecaut Square. What happened to Day Two and Day One, you ask? No long stories, I wasn't there. This is my first fashion week in Toronto and being a fashion week rookie, i am still trying to get a hang of things. So last minute, i picked up my camera and business cards to experience the event in person...from outside.  Don't feel bad for me. I wanted to see fellow bloggers or fashionistas do their thing and I wanted to be the one to capture it all on on camera.

My verdict?

It was a lot of fun! And in that short period of time, i was out there, i received a gift card to go shopping at Dufferin Mall, did a mini networking with industry folks that was kind of unexpected and succeeded in taking some street style photos. Not bad for a rookie on her first night, huh?

Meanwhile, photos of my outfit will be published soon.

Models doing their thing.

She was the first person i approached and without hesitating, she smiled and nicely put her best leg forward. She happily gave me her best Angelina Jolie pose and i couldn't have been happier to know that gorgeous plaid skirt had a slit after my heart.

I noticed everyone had someone or knew someone. I guess it is easier to attend fashion shows with someone else who shares the same passion as you. Don't you think? By the way, i am a loner. I would have gone in all by myself only to realize i am also sitting alone :)).

I think these ladies looked adorable in their contrasting colors of outfit. Do you think they planned it that way?

 In passing...more plaids

Just when i had already jumped in my car and called it a night, i lifted my head, and this happened. It was the glow of that all white at night, his persona and everything that i find  to be stylishly inviting that made me step out of my car to get a picture this pure perfection of an outfit.

Fashion week and fashion events  are in full swing here in Toronto. World Master Card Fashion Week started today and two of my favorite designers, Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan will be kick starting the opening show. Talking about fashion events, i was invited to an event on Thursday to usher in the Fashion week. I wish i could tell you more about that, but i have nothing. I know, silly me, right? But it wasn't all me. I will tell all about it in another post.

And no, this wasn't i wore. Although, i did wear a skater skirt too, but this outfit was taken during that week of early fall when it still felt like summer. Isn't it obvious i was happy it was warm...again? Even if it was just a passing....

 Who is with me on wearing more colors and prints this season?

FALL BOOTS by Bearpaw
I am not a fan of the cold weather, but if there is anything to be excited about, it is those swoon worthy fall boots that will kick you right into a good mood. Boots are absolute fall essentials and regardless of what anybody says, they always make the outfit. I picked out this pair because as usual, bearpaw shoes are known to be so comfortable and cozy, but most of all what's not to love if they are very stylish and versatile.

My easy weekend look was inspired by these boots, but the colors were inspired by the essence and beauty of  fall. The beautiful fall trees with golden yellow and red leaves just make me go, "Aaah, gorgeous". As the leaves on the trees are changing, so is the temperature. So yes, it's right about that time of the year again to start making room for some boots in my closet. These will actually take me right into early winter. Score! I couldn't be happier and more thankful to bearpaw for spoiling me with their ever so comfortable and warm shoes. I know one thing for sure, i won't be getting any freezing toes this season.

BRUSH ON FIBER EYE LASH MASCARA - 60 SECOND EYLASH EXTENSION
This is is just as new to me as it in the United States of America.

No glue, No mess, No irritation. 2 Products. 3 Simple Steps.

Wowza!

I have only worn eyelash extensions just once in my life and it was for Halloween, but this brush on fiber eye lash extensions by Cherry Blooms got my attention wholeheartedly.

BRUSH ON FIBER EYE LASH MASCARA - 60 SECOND EYLASH EXTENSION


Supposedly:
-It takes less than 60 seconds to achieve 300% fuller eyelashes.
-It is light weight and just as easy as applying a mascara.
-Each kit has a shelf life of 3 years and lasts for 4 months of continuous daily use. Huh?
-Cruelty free
-100%  safe for contact wearers
-Sweat and cry proof

For those of you who are just as interested as i am, it is $59 via www.cherryblooms.com

If this is all true, this is just going to be a game changer for mascaras and eyelash extensions as a whole. Have you tried it? I would really like to hear from you..
