Joe Fresh has been rocking my world lately; I’ve been buying up the Fall collection like nobody’s business. Along with my milk and eggs, I’ve been stocking up on coloured pants, silk blouses, and skinny jeans that fit like they were made for me with each trip to my local Loblaw store. This recently developed addiction to all things Joe had me even more excited than usual to see the Spring 2013 runway show at World Mastercard Fashion Week last week, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The show opened with none other than the legendary Pat Cleveland, who sported the first in a series of black and white looks that made my heart go pitter patter. I’ve been embracing colour recently, but a return to my old, monochromatic ways would be more than welcome. I feel the same way about metallics, which I happily abandoned a few years ago. The latter half of the Joe Fresh show may have just brought me back to the shiny side with a stunning metallic leather laser-cut dress and printed gold leather skirt that I just have to have.
Quite a few of those runway pieces will be on my grocery shopping list come spring, and at Joe Fresh price points the Mister can’t possibly complain. Besides, fashion over food, am I right?
