Isn’t it crazy how within a 24 hour period, the world seems to shift from a fall/Halloween mentality right into the holiday season? Now that it’s November, the stores are decorated and ready for Christmas, Starbucks has red cups (and holiday drinks)… and it gets dark at 5:00. It’s all a matter of time before we’re talking about that four letter “s” word around here, too.
I have a friend who embraces the holiday season as soon as it’s “acceptable” to do so. Having spent the weekend at her house, my other friends and I witnessed the excitement firsthand. She gets more excited about the holidays than anyone else I know, so it didn’t surprise me to watch her pull out a few Christmas pillows…the morning after Halloween.
Meanwhile, it’s looking like an unseasonably warm week ahead, so I’m celebrating by wearing faux fur and a black denim skirt…without any tights. It’s the little things, right? Seriously though, how cute is the faux fur and denim skirt combination? I recently attended the launch party to celebrate TOPSHOP opening at Upper Canada Mall, and this skirt was one of the pieces that I picked up. I love it so much that I may have worn it two days in a row last week.
I’ve been attending more events these days and the TOPSHOP launch was a lot of fun. They had a DJ, hors d’oeurves, mocktails, a selfie booth and lipstick touch ups. I got to hang out with a couple other bloggers, and meet Liz Trinnear, who was the special guest. It was actually so cute to watch some of the younger girls talking to her, and see how much they looked up to her for style tips and advice.
One of the things I love about events is checking out the photos afterwards. Below are a few of my favourites!
