Home for the Holidays Preview

At the end of July, I attended Brill Communications Holiday '14 preview in Toronto. Those who know me personally (or you will soon see as winter approaches) are aware that I am obsessed with Holiday season. On a personal note, I used to adore Christmastime because it was a time of festivities, family and fun in my household. However, as I grew up and my family grew apart, my Christmas spirit has faded. I hope that as I get older, I can establish my own Holiday traditions that restore my Christmas spirit. I certainly think that Holiday events like these previews will life my spirits!

I started off the morning by visiting Addition Elle's Holiday collection. I can safely say that there are at least 15 items that I NEED to have in my closet next season. I inquired about the release date of the collection and most of the items should be in between October and November of this year. Honestly, I am so impressed with Addition Elle this year. Ever since they rebranded themselves, I have loved pretty much everything in store.

faux-fur shawls are all the rage this season!

I attended the event with my girls Jess (from Clothes and Shit) and Amarina (from Ursa Major+) and we had an absolute blast. We were actually the first people to see the AE "Make Love Your Legacy" commercial (other than AE staff) which was pretty cool. I really loved the message it promoted and I love the 'Meet My Love' campaign that they're currently running.

There were so many other brands represented by Brill Communications, which were such a treat to see. Of course, my areas of interest (besides curvy fashion) were the beauty products. I absolutely loved Miyu BeautySoft LipsConair and Calgon's displays. I have to say, these companies spoiled us bloggers with some amazing beauty swag that I am obsessed with.

I also had the pleasure of viewing Tristan's Fall/Winter '14 collection and I really loved their shoe and accessory collection. It also seems that faux-fur is TOTALLY in for this winter, especially when worn as a shawl (Tristan has a gorgeous shawl coming out soon). I also loved Josephson Opticians' wonderful range of eyeglasses and sunglasses. They were all so unique and fashion-forward!

It was a hot summer day in the city, so I decided to wear a mini-dress that Jess lent to me. It's a tad big on her, but it fits me just right so it's in my closet temporarily. Check out how Jess wore it here! We took turns taking outfit photos up on the patio of the Soho Metropolitan Hotel, where the event was held.
