ALBERTA FASHION WEEK (SPRING 2011): DAY 1


FIRST RUNWAY SHOW!!!! Thursday was gloomy, cold and rainy that my spring outfits were put on hold for the other days and instead I opted to wear this sheer top with a sheer skirt and tights. Most definitely not my everyday style but wouldn't hurt to be a bit girly and "dressed up" sometimes.

 The weather didn't help in taking photos either. We weren't able to take outfit shots outside like we used to and the room inside was so dark to take photos too. Needless to say, these are the only photos we were able to take of my outfit but you get the gist of it, yeah? ;)

Apt. 22 kicked off the runway shows for Alberta Fashion week with their bohemian chic looks. It was all about floppy hats, hippie headbands and easy breezy fabric. I spoke with Kimberlie Stern, owner of Apt. 22 and she said that all of her items are flown from L.A. which definitely depicts the vibe of her store. I'm from a tropical country and prolly the reason why I enjoyed her show is because I see myself wearing her stuff. I am meeting with her this week and I am stoked, keeping my fingers crossed!

 Mealan was up next and she filled the runway with a lot of colorful and vibrant pieces. Definitely check out her store and just fill your wardrobe with color this Spring! 

Last but definitely not the least was Bellissima. Totally rocked the runway with their fierce, fun, funky and edgy pieces--leather, combat boots,  jumpsuits and a whole lot of black. The styling from the hair to the make-up to the clothes were superb. Kudos to stylist/friend, Jennie Lyle! Definitely one of my fave collections from Alberta Fashion Week and I can't help but rush to their stores and spend the 20% off discount c/o AFW.

Forgive the bad quality photos. We were seated at the end of the runway and couldn't get decent shots. But the next two days we got wicked seats so stay tuned for that!

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend~
