MMVAs, Kania and such.

Heyy Everyone!
Summer is in full swing now. I got my exam marks back a few days ago, and I did okay. I'm pretty happy with my marks, and am fully ready to enjoy summer. On Sunday June 15 ( or Father's Day) it was the Much Music Video Awards (MMVAs). I didn't watch all of it, but I have caught bits and pieces here and there from the reruns, I swear they play it all the time. Anyway here are some pictures from the MMVAs if you want to see more check it out here.
The New Kids On the Block had their reunion at the MMVAs. It was their first time performing together in a long time. There was a big lead up for this days before the event. I love Chase Crawford. Enough Said.


The weather here has been CRAZY! One day its warm and sunny the next its freezing cold, and raining. We had tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm watches. The Weather Network went nuts, telling us to take cover, it was almost amusing. So the night of the MMVAs we had thunderstorms on and off, with crazy winds, so the red carpet was very wet. I read somewhere in the newspaper that they began to call it the red sea. Anyway that was a very long explanation as to why Jesse McCartney is holding an umbrella.

Mel C from the Spice Girls, in Toronto which has now been named Spice City.


Rihanna won best International Artist. She also performed.


Headly did very well taking home four awards.

I have been shopping a few times since school has ended. Here is what I bought:
I love these shoes, even though they gave me blisters at first, I decided to forgive them. I mean they are so cute, its hard not to.





I also got these sandals because I needed a pair of dressier sandals.






I went to F21 and got a couple of shorts. The jean ones were around $11, and the others I got instead of a pair from AE. I liked the F21 ones because they were a little bit dresser, oh and the fact that they were cheaper didn't hurt either.



These are the shorts from AE



These are the shorts from F21


So continuing with Canadian Designers, Stacey Bafi-Yeboa designs the line Kania, which can be found in different locations across Canada. Her line is more casual and looks very comfortable and cozy.



This sweater is called a Snuggie and it comes in a few different colours. I really want one. It is around $149.

This is the Blazin. It is around $169.

I really love the colour of this, it is called Calor. It can be worn as a skirt or a dress. It also comes in white and it is $149.

If you want to see more then check it out here.



Anyway I hope you all have a good weekend. Good luck to those of you who are writting exams, and to those of you who have finished enjoy summer. I will post again soon!

Pink Tartan

Heyy Everyone!
I am continuing with my Canadian Designer posts, I posted on Pink Tartan back in February anyway the Fall/Winter collection is out, and you can similarities between the two collections. Like the Spring/Summer collection all the pieces go well together, so you can mix and match, and all are very wearable. Here are my favourites for the Fall/Winter '08 collection:

I love this dress, it is so simple yet cute.

I really like the pattern and ruffles on the shirt

I love these pants, I think that they are so cute, and would be really flattering on.
My favourite part of the pants is the button detail.
I really like the bow, it is very Blair from Gossip Girl
and the texture of the jacket it great.
I think that this is my favourite outfit of the entire collection.


Usually I am not a big fan of the colour yellow, but I really like this vest. The blouse is cute, I like the sleeve length.
If you would like to see the rest of the collection click here

Well that's all for me for now,
Belle

Barila

Heyy Everyone!
Exams are over! Thank goodness! I think that they went well, at least I hope they did, I won't know how I did until next week. Now I am going to enjoy the summer, and try to post regularly. I am planning on lathering on the sunscreen and sitting out side in the beautiful hot weather. I am so happy that I can finally read for pleasure again, I never have enough time during the school year, so my list of books that I want to read piles up. I'm so glad to be done!
I have decided to feature Canadian Designers. Here is a Canadian designer, Sabrina Barila, her head office is located in Montreal, and she has a few stores across Canada. Here are my favourites from her fall/winter '08 collection.

I like the jeweled neck line,
I would wear this with a couple of bangles.

I really like the buckles on the boots, and the fact that the shirt has pockets.

It is grey, need I say more.

I love the couch that they are sitting on. Its really cute. I love the shoes with the bows.

I really like the pattern of the dress.

Is it just me or does this model sort of look like Sophia Bush?
If you want to see more of the collection then click here

Love,
Belle
