Thursday at Vancouver Fashion Week: What I Wore

For my first fashion show ever, I couldn't have asked for a better night! The shows were fantastic, we had good seats, and I met so many other fashion-obsessed Vancouverites! We were second row from the front, right at the front of the runway, thanks to the VFW Lookbook Team.

I've divided the night up into two posts: the first is on my outfit for the event, and the second part will be on the show itself, and my favourite collections of the night.

I chose to try something completely different for this fashionable night. In honour of the start of Spring, I thought I would experiment with some colours and styles I don't wear very often. The royal blue skirt was one of the pieces I picked up from the Vancouver Blogger Sale from blogger Cee of Coco and Vera. I loved it when I saw it, and I love it even more now that I've discovered how to style it! It flows so beautifully, and its skinny gold belt is the perfect touch.

I wanted to try something different with my hair too, and went searching on Pinterest (of course!) for some ideas. I tried a few, but apparently just because it's split into 4 steps doesn't make it I made up my own 'do and tied 3 braids into a messy bun.

During the break between shows, I met up with VFW's Marketing girl Katrina (follow her @meowgarita), who has been racing around making VFW an exceptional experience! She was sweet enough to introduce me to a bunch of fashion industry people as well as other bloggers; it was a great night for meeting new faces! And I was totally glowing when a photographer asked for a picture, and then modestly said he was shooting for a magazine called FASHION. FASHION!!! Couldn't wipe the smile off my face. We'll see which looks get picked to actually be featured in their magazine soon enough!

I'll keep you posted, you'll see my favourite looks from the show coming up soon!

  5. My, that skirt looks familiar! I wonder what stylish girl you might have bought it from ;) Seriously, Britta, it looks amazing on you. And it's so funny that you chose it for VFW because that's the last time I wore it - VFW in the fall. Great minds obviously think alike!
