Menswear-Inspired Layers

I decided to go with my version of a menswear-inspired layered look for local designer Jason Matlo's trunk show at Fine Finds in Yaletown a few weeks ago. Jason was in-store showcasing his Babe Collection, which is full of fun dresses in flirty colours and styles. I also had a great time browsing the store (if you haven't been to Fine Finds before, it's basically the mecca of all gift stores), sipping on champagne, and chatting with some of my lovely blogger friends.

For pictures from the event, check out Tina's blog and Kerri's blog.

Pants: Gap (here)/ Bag: Longchamp / Booties: Report (here) / Belt: H&M

  9. Love your layers! Layering is definitely something I have yet to master and you did it perfectly. Plus, your menswear-inspired look has just the right combination of masculine and feminine.
