The Sunday Scoop

My sister recently moved back to Toronto from Victoria, with all of her magnificent wardrobe.  When she got here, she opened up her luggage and started giving stuff away, and I was the lucky beneficiary!

I scored this casual sundress, an unstructured, sleeveless style that I tend to wear more than any other in the summertime.  What a scoop!

Don’t you think it’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon, whether poolside, malling, the farmer’s market or wherever?

Staying cool!

I like this delicate, feminine silver jewelry set with the dress because of its feminine details.  This jewelry has special meaning because it was made especially for me by my aunt.

Classic leather sandals don’t compete with the casual look of the dress.

Tip:  lighter-coloured neutral leather sandals maintain an unbroken line, making your legs look longer than contrasting coloured sandals.

Dress:  Fun2 Fun 

Shoes:  Aldo

Bracelet and necklace:  handmade custom pieces 

What’s your favourite hot summer Sunday look?

Catwalk with a Conscience

Every year, my school holds a fashion show, “On the Catwalk, raising funds for a worthy cause in the GTA.  Area retailers contribute beautiful clothes to support the cause and showcase what they have in the pre-Christmas shopping season.  Past causes have included such things as medical research and organizations providing support for troubled youth.

This year’s event was held on November 29 in the school’s Performing Arts Centre and raised funds to support the upcoming service trip of a group of students traveling from the school to Kenya with Free the Children, to participate in building a school in that country.  This is part of an initiative intended to give “a hand up, not a hand out” to the people of that developing nation.   This trip is through Me to We.

The Performing Arts Centre was packed from top to bottom with fashion-conscious, charitable-minded show-goers.
