Ottawa Fashion Week Wrap-Up...

It's been one nutty weekend I tell you, between bathroom renos (which feel more like demos) and Ottawa Fashion Week (OFW), I am not sure where to even begin...why not start with the fun stuff, OFW that is...this season took place in a brand new venue, which I actually loved, The Westin Ottawa...it felt both intimate and sophisticated, a nice change from the slightly impersonal Convention Centre of last year...the designers all showcased their Fall/Winter collections, and although I must be honest and some of the collections were a little lack-lustre, the majority were pretty creative and stunning...I put together a little photo collage of some of my personal favourites from the shows, featured below...in terms of the bathroom renos, here's hoping that I get to use my shower soon...no really let's all keep our fingers crossed...
PS to read some wicked and honest commentary on OFW check out this article, by Justyna Baraniecki (of Chameleonic) and for more photos see here!

...and that's it from my crazy weekend of fashion and renos, I admit the fashion bits were a lot more fun...now back to reality (writing, writing and more writing)...until next time Happy Tuesday everyone!
