Carolina Herrera: Ladylike and Graceful, as Usual

If I had all the money in the world, I would buy every single piece Carolina Herrera shows, every single season.  Sadly, I don’t have that kind of money for these very beautiful, lady-like looks, which are, as usual, gorgeous. For spring/summer 2015, cuts are a bit geometric – the first few looks featured cropped […]

BCBGMaxAzria: Soft, Flowy and Best of All, Petite-Friendly

…for the most part, anyway.  And perhaps they’ve heard enough complaints from people like yours truly!  Traditionally, the “runway collection” presented at New York Fashion Week was very artistic, and definitely not wearable by the vast majority.  However, the same can’t be said for the upcoming collection.  In fact, I have to admit that I’m […]

TFI Press and Buyers’ Brunch: Some Favourites

The Toronto Fashion Incubator’s Press and Buyers’ Brunch offers designers, whether it be fashion or accessories, the chance to speak directly with the press and buyers and has been held at every Toronto Fashion Week for a number of seasons.  While enjoying a delicious brunch, buyers and media have the opportunity to visit a number […]

WMCFW Wrap-up: Yays, Nays and Mehs: Fall/Winter 2014 Edition

Now that Fashion Week is over for another season, it’s time to wrap things up.  As usual, I am presenting my likes, dislikes and neutrals (aka Yays, Nays and Mehs).  I covered mostly early shows this season, so unfortunately, I missed designers like David Dixon and Maison Matthew Gallagher.  Perhaps next season! The Yays: Triarchy […]

Mikhael Kale: Rocker Chick and Folding Napkins

The tents may have been freezing, but World MasterCard Fashion Week kicked off yesterday afternoon with Mikhael Kale’s show in the studio space.  The collection was full of ruffly embellishments, inspired napkins, as well as metals (the napkin ring).  In many ways, it was also a little bit “rocker chick.”   The colours were a […]

Trend Trunk’s Blogger Fashion Week: December 9-15, 2013

Hamilton, Ontario-based Trend Trunk, an online store for both new and “pre-loved” clothes and accessories (profiled on DelectablyChic! in 2012), is holding its first-ever “Blogger Fashion Week” starting today (running until Sunday).  Each day for the entire week, ten bloggers will be featured on, along with links to their “closets” where Trend Trunk users […]

World MasterCard Fashion Week: Day 5 Highlights

The last day (not counting Fashion Saturday – more on that in the Yays, Mehs and Nays coming later this week)! Hilary Macmillan: One of the few designers who actually included true spring/summer colours in the collection – lavenders and shiny pieces, combined with the blacks and whites seen at the vast majority of shows […]

World MasterCard Fashion Week: Day 1 and 2 Highlights

Pink Tartan: I have a love-hate relationship with this line, and have so for the past few seasons.  I love LOOKING at the outfits, but they tend to be very heavy and don’t work well on shorter women with very small frames – most pieces are next to impossible to alter without changing the shape […]

Fashion Week Street Style Inspo…or Not…

There’s the OTT street style one sees at various Fashion Weeks and there’s normal, every day clothing.  Honestly, I don’t really give a HOOT on the former.  I think a lot of people who wear the crazy clothing at Fashion Week only do so to get attention, and I have never really been inspired by […]
