What I Wore: TOM Opening Party

Because the editor of the magazine I work for is a superstar, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the opening party for Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, or TOM.

I haven’t attended many (or any at all) fashion parties yet in my life, so naturally I was really excited but also rather nervous. I wasn’t sure how to act, or what to wear.

I wanted to look nice, but I didn’t want to look like I was trying to hard. I wanted to be on trend, but not ~trendy~. I ended up settling on a monochrome outfit that’s honestly not the most flattering on my figure, but it was comfortable and I loved the full look it created. The culottes with the sandals were a bit basic, but I felt were on-trend enough, would keep me cool in the heat and would assure there would be no unfortunate falls in front of the fashion elite of Toronto.

I was definitely more casually dressed than some there, but the thing about fashion week is you find all kinds of outfits and I love it.

These pictures were taken on Sam’s balcony, as it provided the perfect Toronto background for photo ops.

I didn’t wear a designer label, I didn’t wear anything from Saks Fifth Avenue, because honestly, working as a freelance journalist and blogger doesn’t really allow for that kind of lifestyle. Not yet, anyway.

It was a great time at a great party. As one of my first forays into the world of fashion parties and events, I’d say it was a pretty good start.
