Victoria Secret’s 2015 Fashion Show!

  
Last night, CBS hosted the Victoria Secret’s 2015 Fashion Show where angels such as Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge and Lais Ribeiro graced the runway in some fiery, colourful and sexy lingerie.

I’m still hopeful that one day, average size women will have the opportunity to strut this prestigious runway. No shade to any of these beautiful VS models but I’m sure Toccara Jones and Kristen Madison could also make VS look amazing. #justsaying

This annual event held in New York included performances by Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd. 

Here are some of my fave looks…

Balmain x H&M Collection!

 
I’m baaaaaack! That’s right, I took a 2-month hiatus only to come back with more exciting ‘star-like’ things and I just can’t wait to share with you all of the things that are near and dear to my heart. What better way to start than with…wait for it…FASHION! 

As most “magasineuses” know, the highly anticipated designer collaboration Balmain x H&M is launching TODAY (8am local time to be exact). I mean who wouldn’t want to get their hands on an Olivier Rousteing-designed item. See for yourself…         

My fellow Canadians can shop this designer collection at Rockland Centre and St. Catherine St. West at Peel St. in Montreal, Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, Bloor St. West, Toronto Eaton Centre in Toronto and The Pacific Centre in Vancouver. The lucky first 420 people in line will receive a coloured wristband to shop in groups of 30 for 10 mins only so plan your shopping list beforehand (side note: this collection fits slightly smaller). Afterwards, everything will be up for grabs to everyone else.   

Will you be shopping Balmain x H&M? What’s your must-have item from this designer collection? Here’s mine! Love love love!   (Images via hm.com)

Happy Thursday! Happy shopping!

Olivia Burton Watches!

Olivia Burton

Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings, the duo behind the Olivia Burton London brand, created their own style of watches inspired by vintage styles and catwalk trends. The collection is distinctive as they are all made with obsessive attention to detail. The watches come in many wearable styles such as wonderland, woodland, colour crush, animal motifs, modern vintage and my favourite, big dial (the ‘fab’ watch). They are fun, affordable (ranging from $105 to $200) and full of British style.

I’m definitely adding the big dial watch to my wishlist. Do you have a favourite OB watch style?

Happy Monday!

Yesterday, the Michael Kors spring/summer show took place at Spring Studios, NY for New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Olivia Munn rocked MK from head to toe in this suntan eyelet jacquard jumpsuit that she paired with black sandals. This look is simple yet chic. No accessories needed! The jumpsuit is a statement in itself and the sweetheart shape neckline oozes femininity. I think I need this one-piece wonder in my closet. What are your thoughts?

Check out some of my favourite looks from the Michael Kors S/S runway show…
