Some Serious Sleeve Action

Every season I try to take a look at what the trends are and pick one or two to try out. I’ll admit, there have been some hits and some misses, but I am pretty sure this one could come back to haunt me. However, I am absolutely obsessed with this trend as of the moment.

From seeing blogger and instagram styling I have gotten a strong craving for a crazy-sleeved blouse. The contrast of something so classic turned into something completely trendy makes it an incredibly interesting piece. I can actually see these sticking around for a while, or having stylists be able to cover them up or use them in a different fashion. Either way, I need to get my hands on one. I have been looking online and here are some of my favourites. Let me know what you think.

Fashion Week Vibes in a University Town

Last night was a pretty big deal for the fashion community… Not as a whole, but specifically for the students of one university, mine! The largest student run fashion show in Canada, and one of my friends was modelling in it. SO, of course I had to be there. I was very impressed with the show and honestly just the style of all the people attending the event. You could tell everyone was dressing up for a good time, and it was all for an incredibly good cause. All in all, I would call that a pretty successful night. Not quite fashion week, but my own personal fashion-y night.

Hey! Sometimes a girl needs a night of getting ready and wearing non-everyday clothes. The possibilities were almost overwhelming (and somewhat limited when you need to bus there in less than spring-y weather).

Any chance I get to pull out these heeled over the knee beauties, I live for. The rich chocolate brown suede and flattering cut just above the knee are a killer combo.

I also try to capitalize on low-risk lipstick wearing situations, and last night fit the bill. Went for NARS Train Bleu, but ultimately decided to tone it down to a nice moisturizing Burt’s Bees lip crayon in the shade Napa Vineyard. I was very impressed by the texture as well as how long it lasted on the lips (even through post-show guac and chips!).

How was your Saturday night?

Thanks for reading!
