Style Domination Goes To World MasterCard Fashion Week (and Fulfils Life Goal…)

For the past few years, I have been desperate to go to World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto, but life always seemed to get in the way. Early this year though, I started planning, and I planned hard because NOTHING was stopping me this time.

I knew that getting tickets to the shows, especially the very popular ones like Pink Tartan and Mackage, was going to be hard, so I started stalking the WMCFW website like it was my full-time job.  Finally, the ticket site went live, I pulled my credit card out of its holster, and by some miracle of God, I got tickets to every show I wanted to see!  I honestly shed tears of joy onto my keyboard.

I bought my train ticket to Toronto, carefully chose my outfits, and I was set.  I was doing it!!  I was finally going to see real live runway shows at one of the biggest fashion weeks in the world! I felt like a kid again – I couldn’t sleep the night before leaving for Toronto, and I was a bag of nerves as I boarded the train. What can I say? I live for this stuff.

Words cannot express how I felt as I walked up to David Pecaut Square where the shows were held…the rush when streetstyle photographers took my picture, the feeling when I bumped into supermodel Yasmin Warsame, or how starstruck I felt when I saw my favourite bloggers such as Justine Iaboni of Jetset Justine, Catriona Smart of Coco & Cowe and Alexander Kenton of Kenton Magazine. #starstruck

So, enough “talk”. Here are my pictures from one of the most thrilling experiences I have ever had! And if you are curious, check out WMCFW’s Instagram account for more great pics of the shows!

      I really did. In fact, at one point during the shows, as I huddled in a corner staring at the beautiful models walk down the runway, I got teary-eyed. Corny, I know – but I was just so happy to be there!! Thank you so much for reading. Your support means a lot!!! xo

      Thank you, Sonam! It was something I will NEVER forget! Hopefully, one day we’ll get to NY, Paris, London and Milan Fashion Weeks! Actually, I’m seriously considering London Fashion Week as I have a bit of an in there. Thank you so much for reading and for the outfit compliments!
