Have you seen them? #NordstromOTT has been blasting photos all over social media, and we, 7 Ottawa Fashion Bloggers, were lucky to take part it in all!
Who are this year’s Ottawa Fashion Bloggers rocking Nordstrom Spring Style?
A few cold weeks ago, Nordstrom Ottawa organized a lovely Sunday morning complete with food, fashion, a flower wall and lots of photos! They greeted us with open arms, fed our bellys until we were full, beautified our faces and graciously draped us in the most wonderful clothes and accessories. Even though I did not get to keep my outfit, the chance to walk around and say “pass me those Karen Walker sunglasses” and “oh, that Chloe bag will work” and “I’ll get those Manolos in a size 9 please”… was enough of a remarkable experience.
I love when brands go the extra mile to make you feel special. My dressing room had everything waiting for me, and all in my size! Can you image? I had a quick chat with my stylist and BAM! it was gorgeously laid out for me with matching shoes too! A girly-girl’s dream come true!
Ok, I have been holding on to this post in my drafts for almost 8 months. I have been desperately waiting to publish it, but I thought it would be cruel to do so in the winter. In anticipation of spring fashion, I am hitting send today! Yes, there is a snowstorm predicted for this afternoon, but I don’t care anymore. Let it be spring!
The folks behind the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show are at it again, and promising to once again deliver the best in vintage fashion this city has to offer. Join me on April 10, 2016 at the Shaw Centre (Convention Centre, 55 Colonel By Drive) for a full day of treasure hunting. At this ONE DAY ONLY event, from 10am until 5pm, fashion conscious shoppers will find everything from retro street wear to vintage Chanel hand bags. Admission is $10, discount pass available online at OttawaVintageClothingShow.ca. Keep reading though… trust me!
Last November, I attended the The Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show and to nobody’s surprise, did a LOT of damage. (Seriously, folks, this part-time “hobby” of mine gets really expensive!) The most impressive booth had to be the one selling vintage Chanel handbags, Luxe Touch. They are based in Hamilton but ship worldwide! Can you image this being your business (insert “heart-eyes” emoji here).
For sticking around this long, I am offering you a chance to win 2 free tickets to the show! Tell me what gems you are hoping to find at the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show and I’ll enter your name in the draw! The winner will be selected Wednesday, April 6, 2016.
Since we are supposed to be getting another snow storm, I thought it would be timely to share the last look from the winter fashion street style session that I did with Amy Symes. Check out the other two looks from the series Vintage Fur and Black and Grey.
This was the first look we shot, not entirely our favourite, but the look is there, non the less. We shot this in the field next to my house. Amy was concerned that the backdrop wasn’t lively enough. What do you think?
In this outfit, I felt very warm and comfortable. This is a great casual and easy look for “mom on the go”. I get loads of compliments on this jacket too, and most of all I love the detailed buttons. One thing I have to admit is that I ADORE my hair here, this to me is a good hair day. The cold always gives me nice hair. That’s all 🙂
