Toronto resembles a mini New York in so many ways, and last night’s party once again made it seem so.
Among a backdrop of luxury stores on Bloor Street, famous Parisian brand Guerlain hosted an invitation-only party on the patio at La Societe to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of their iconic Terracotta bronzing powder. Sadly this spring has been chilly, but when you’re surrounded by decorative palm trees, drums, and everyone wearing fedoras… mother nature can be forgiven. It’s always incredibly fun going to events because you get to meet new people, like Jessica, who runs the Toronto chapter of Fashion Group International, fellow Toronto-based models and getting my makeup touched up by their fabulous makeup artist was so therapeutic. I sit in the hair and makeup chair so often that it’s like a massage bed for me at this point.
I’m a total sinner because I haven’t tried Guerlain’s Terracotta bronzing powder until yesterday, but now that I got my hands on one, I plan on bronzing my pasty-ness away, and I’ll definitely share my impressions with you all on my YouTube channel in the upcoming weeks. If you are unfamiliar with the brand, Guerlain is one of the world’s oldest – and most prestigious – perfume brands. Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain opened a perfume store at 42, rue de Rivoli in Paris France nearly 200 years ago, and since then generations of the Guerlain family created more than 300 different fragrances sold all over the world. In order to, you know, match the whole “celebrate that which launched 30 years ago”- I decided to wear my new vintage Harley Davidson tee and vintage suede skirt to the event. Something about mixing vintage clothing with a modern bag and shoes brings me such a thrill and feeling of coolness. You can’t take away my sparkle when I’m in a vintage tee. Nuh-uh.
