runway to real life.

the first little bit of fall is a time that i love so much: when the leaves first change but the temperature isn’t too cold yet, and you can open all the windows in your apartment to let the breeze roll through. why does it always smell so fresh, too?

i also love fall fashion, where boots and scarves can be fashionable and not just functional.

but i’m so not there yet. in my head it’s still tank top season and i’m having a hard time coming to terms with layers.

for this reason, my wardrobe is not ready for the season change either. enter Marlborough Mall to get me geared up for fall. they wanted to know what my favourite looks of the season will be. after sitting on the runway last month, i got a feel of some trends, and armed with access to more than 100 brand name retail stores, i was ready to create my runway to real life fall look.


dear east village, thank you for having these fantastic all-canadiana box seats. they make the perfect personal runway. love, laura.

i really fell in love with knits at the show. they are comfortable, warm and cozy, but styled in the right way they can still be dressy and dare i say sexy?

i found this knit dress at le chateau and loved the cut and small slit up the side. it’s also a tank, which is great for the beginning of the fall season where you can get 20 degree days and wear it as is, or when it gets cooler, you can pair it with a scarf or moto jacket and look even more adorable.


these gorgeous burgundy booties are from call it spring. the colour screams fall to me, and they are so versatile since they work great with a dress, but would also be amazing with a pair of leather leggings or cuffed skinny jeans. the suede material is so luxurious for fall, too. everything in fall should be so cozy!
