October was previously the month of Toronto Fashion Week, an event I’d been attending (and loving) for the past couple years- until it was cancelled this year. And also forever. I was super bummed out by this news considering it was always the highlight of my month to see the new (spring and therefore hopefully pastel-filled??!) collections from my favourite Canadian designers like Mikhael Kale and Hayley Elsaesser. HOWEVER, I was lucky enough to be invited to several events this month (so far, there’s more comin up!!). I’m splitting these recap posts into threeeee posts, since I have 67395 photos to share.
Nordstrom Opening Gala
Canada’s FIRST EVER NORDSTROM (why did it take so long?? dunno) opened at Yonge/Dundas Square at the beginning of the month, and I was able to attend the opening gala. It included a BUNCH of hors d’oeuvres (sign me up), a bunch of open bars with different alcohol varieties (including a BEER VENDING MACHINE, double sign me up), a fashion show with models wearing the latest and greatest from designers like Alexander Wang and Burberry, and three floors of live music, shopping, and VIP’s dressed to impress.

Eligible Magazine & Softlips Presents: Bachelor Party
Okay so, this one was less of a fashion event and more of a girls-peeing-their-pants event. But I still thought it was worth a mention since I got to hang out with Vinny, Jared and Robbie from The Bachelor/The Bachelorette/ Bachelor in Paradise. THERE WAS SO MUCH VAGINA IN THE ESTABLISHMENT.
