Fashion-able: WMCFW street style

If you’ve attended a fashion show before, you know that half the fun is people-watching show attendees to see what they’re wearing. While a fashion show heralds trends that are coming, street style showcases what’s hot now. We’re only on day three of World MasterCard Fashion Week but so far, our socks have been knocked off by the fashion we’ve spotted off the runway. Check out some of our top picks below!

Capes and the colour of the season (oxblood). These two make for a killer duo.

We love Fiona Green‘s patterned pants and shearling vest. 
Comfort, without sacrificing style. Works for us.

Fur, patterns and maxi dresses. Take note, people. This is how it’s done.

Let’s hear it for the boys! Greta Constantine‘s Kirk and Jesse both sporting tasseled loafers.

Her fur coat elevates the casual varsity T.

While we’re suckers for a tutu, the coordinated polka dot purse + socks is what caught our eye.

No matter what Stacey McKenzie is wearing, she’s always pairs it with a smile. 

Big thanks to Lisa Riedel for snapping our street style looks!  

Fashion-able: Leslieville street style

Queen West is home to
great fashion, food, drink, espresso, entertainment and our very own
Burroughes building. We feel lucky to work in such a vibrant, happening ‘hood. But the other end of Queen Street is equally as hip, with its unassuming, grounded culture and (nearly) big-box store-free streets.

Leslieville is flourishing; it hosts high-quality
local, sustainable food stores such as Hooked, Rowe Farms and Leslieville Cheese.
We love its growing variety of delish eateries, such as Leslieville Pumps,
Paulette’s Original Donuts, Goods & Provisions and Enoteca Ascari 26. Shops
like Thrill of the Find, Baby on the Hip, Nathalie-Rose and Co. and Doll Factory offer great finds and a strong community vibe.

We decided to head over to the east end again (check out our previous blog
posts on Leslieville Pumps and Paulette’s Original Donuts), but this time to take a
few snaps of the local street style. We were not disappointed. We found the style
generally unpretentious and fun. Bright pops of colour and floral patterns were popular, and strappy sandals a staple.
Bright colours and a mullet skirt are fresh and summery.
A floral dress with gladiator sandals and a
black vest mixes sugar and spice.
This maxi dress with a smart cardigan and bag looks polished
but not overdone.
A print bag lends a flirty summer vibe to the
classic skinny-jeans-and-cute-blouse look.

This romantic dress looks city chic with a crossbody bag
and strappy sandals.
A bright skirt adds some sun to this outfit.
These bohemian capris are the centerpiece of a unique earthy

We’re looking forward to hitting up more Toronto neighbourhoods to check out what styles people are rocking.
