I can’t believe it’s almost here! Toronto’s FIRST Fashion’s Night Out is happening this Thursday September 6th – and I couldn’t be more excited to shop…and scared for my credit cards! From 6-11pm, there will be shopping parties all over the city for FNO Toronto. Where will you be?
Some of your favourite retailers will be hosting parties, local designers are coming together for exclusive pop-up shops and in addition to the incredible shopping, you’ll find spots for style tips, makeovers, live music, film screenings, delicious nibbles and cocktails too! With so many fabulous events taking place for the first annual FNO Toronto, there won’t be any shortage of good times and great deals – but plan wisely to take in as much as possible!
I’ll be sharing my time between Queen West and Yorkville with a few spots in between. Here’s my FNO Toronto party hopping plan… Continue reading…
The Dainty Girl VIP Party Shopping Party at Homegrown Boutique was fabulous night! Thanks to everyone who came out to support Dainty Girl and Fresh Canadian Fashion! It was lovely to be surrounded by so many stylish and fun people, sharing the passion for local apparel, jewellery and beauty products. Pink champagne, homemade cake pops and free manis made it an extra special affair
I started the day on Thursday August 9th in my kitchen making French vanilla cake pops decorated by hand with pink and purple icing…so dainty and delicious! I loved sharing my baking with friends and guests, and blushed a little when my pops were dubbed “kitchen miracles” worthy of starting a side business!
I really enjoyed playing dress-up in this stunning silk dress by one of my favourite Canadian designers, Sarah Stevenson. The bold colours are offset by the soft, lightweight fabric and the romantic and feminine hi-low hemline. I felt like a true Dainty Girl in this fun, flirty dress and it was easy to accessorize too! I chose sparkling Swarovski earrings, a multi-strand silver and crystal statement necklace and a bold blue cuff by Ann Taylor along with my favourite Biko Jewellery bracelet and my MK menswear watch. My peeptoe t-strap pumps from Nine West were the perfect match and the NYC Mini Tote by up-and-coming Canadian handbag designer Sneha Varma was the perfect arm candy! Online shop coming soon.
I had such a wonderful time chatting with our stylish guests, promoting local fashion and getting pampered on a Thursday night! Thanks again to everyone who came out and special thanks to Homegrown Boutique for giving me this opportunity! I hope we can do this again sometime very soon! Enjoy the photos! xoxo
