Shameless Plug

Instead of a proper post today, I'm insteading going to let everyone know about my newest project: a second blog. I love reading people's personal style blogs and wanted to start doing some of that, but I don't want to change Pudding and Pie because I kind of like it the way it is. Thus, Cookies N Cream was born. Go ahead and check it out!

Toronto Street Style

Here are some of the excessly stylish people snapped by Krist Papas at Toronto fashion week. I like Canadian style. On the whole I find it laid-back and on the conservative side, yet with fun quirky touchs (or maybe that's just me). I especially love the attitude of the girl in the black/pink/red sweater.

Toronto Fashion Week

In case you didn't know, I'm from Canada and I love Canadian fashion. As such, I was very excited about Toronto Fashion Week. Although I couldn't make it (it would involve flying basically across the country in the middle of midterm season, but hey, I can still dream), I did hunt high and low for some pictures of the great collections. I am so pround that these designers are from Canada and I wish them all of the best. Please note that there are quite a few photos in this one. (Photos from CTV, Krist Papas and geekigirl's Flickr)

I love the colours of these three gowns from Andy The-Anh. I think the three of them coming down the runway together looks amazing. The one on the left is probably my favourite of the three.

I love this skirt so much, I think it's amazing. I also love how darkly romantic the whole look is, especially with the hat.

I also really liked David Dixon's spring collection. First of all, the atmosphere of the show looked amazing (I love the colour of the sky and the big tree) and the cloths did not disappoint either. I think the scaly dress has an awesome texture and I love the movement of the black skirt. the red dress also has a great print to it.

I was also very fond of this look from Denis Gagnon. I love white for spring and the shape of the skirt is definately cute.

Gsus looked like the most entertaining show to be at in Toronto this year, what with some models kissing in the middle of the runway and others giving rude gestures as they strut down the runway. Not to mention that the clothes were great. I love the bright colours and the wide-leg jeans.

The designs by Lucian Matis were lovely as well. I love the splashes of colour on the gown (not to mention the off-kilter bow) and the mixture of pale yellow and pink is really pretty too.

The next collection I liked was Morales. I love the pretty colours and the delicate spring dresses. The headpieces are pretty amazing too!

I adore the retro-inspired looks at Pink Tartan. I prints are lovely and I think the clothes are incredably glamerous in a classy, old-fashioned way without looking like you're dressing up for Blast from the Past Day (did anyone else have those in school? So much fun. Anyway...).

I love this coat and bag from Rudsak. The coat is crisp and white, but doesn't end up looking like a lab coat (trust me, I'm a science major and my lab coat is nowhere near this chic).

The Thien Le show looked absolutely gorgeous. I love the red dress, it reminds me so much of Flamenco, which is insanely sexy in a completely non-vulgar way (always important). Plus the yellow background is amazing!

I hope you enjoy these styles as much as I do and let me know what you think. I'm planning on posting some of the cool street style I found spotted at the shows (not by me, unfortunately). As well, I bought an amazing green wool skirt over the weekend and I can't wait to show it off. I tried taking some photos, but the colour came out funny, so I'm hopefulling going to get some outside shots of it tomarrow.

Green Machine

So I'm sure anyone who's watched tv or open a fashion magazine can tell that a lot of people are started to get excited about green clothing. I'm starting to definately get excited about green fashion. Finally clothes that are easier on the environment are also pretty and fashionable and now you have more options that simply the hippie look. Below are some of my favourite looks from green designers.

Anna Cohen: I love these designs! I'm so glad that they're beautiful and environmentally friendly! Heck, I would love these even if they weren't "green" and isn't that the point!

BTC Elements: I thought this was really cute and it's actually made out of salvaged fabric.

del forte: Amazing jeans! I haven't had a chance to try any on, but I'm planning to go to one of the ecostores that carries them because I think they're amazing and adorable!

edun: Cute t-shirts. I love the leaf/heart. It's adorable and follows the eco-theme.

elroy: Again, clothes I would love even if they weren't eco-friendly. I love the jacket!

Grace & Cello: Adorable jacket and in one of my favourite colours! Maybe planning ahead for next spring...

Stewart + Brown: I love the denim suit (not old-fashioned and dated - Joe from project runway could have learned from this) and the knit sweater.

On another environmentally-friendly fashion note, I'm going to be helping out backstage at the "Sustainability is Sexy" fashion show on November 1. I'm definately sooo excited. If you happen to be in Calgary next weekend, you should definately drop by! (photos from designer's websites) <3
