Stylin’ from the Backseat: Doe, A Deer

The talented Jenna Marie Wakani shot this photo of S outside the WMCFW tents last week for Elle Canada, capturing her nod to one of our favourite Canadian designers, Sunny Fong of VAWK. Along with the snap came some fun interview questions, which we thought we’d share here in case you missed the post on ellecanada.com.

Fave piece: ”My VAWK deer shirt—it’s a one-of-a-kind runway sample!”

TFW Spring 2015 highlight: “The Mercedes-Benz Start-Up finale—what a great platform for emerging talent! These are the designers who are going to shape the Canadian fashion landscape in the coming years.”

Star gazing: ”Stacey McKenzie is hands down my fave front row fixture. Her look is always on point and she has an infectious enthusiasm for Canadian fashion.”

Top Canadian model: ”It’s a tie between Daria Werbowy and Coco Rocha. Don’t make me choose!”

Most cherished fashion piece: ”My whimsical Charlotte Olympia x Olympia Le-Tan Charlotte’s Web book clutch. It was my favourite book growing up.”

Top Spring 2015 trend: ”Jumpsuits. I can’t get enough of them!”

Are you loyal fans of VAWK, Coco and jumpsuits too?

Look Who Got #RedkenReady With Us at WMCFW + WIN a $250 Redken Prize Pack!

The weather during World Mastercard Fashion Week was tough on our hair games. Our ‘dos were suffering the wrath of Mother Nature and her torrential downpours for most of fashion week, and we weren’t the only ones. Thank goodness we’ve got new friends in high places, namely Redken Canada, official hair sponsor of WMCFW. On Day 2 of fashion week, we teamed up with the incredibly talented Redken team to get attendees #RedkenReady – one spray of dry shampoo at a time! – outside the tents and in the rain, no less.

Industry insiders like bloggers Nelia Belkova and Hawley Dunbar, Elle Canada Associate Editor Charlotte Herrold, fashion writer Anya Georgijevic and more all happily took us up on our offers of hair touch-ups courtesy of Redken Canada. A few spritzes of Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist for added shine or some strategic sprays of Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender to re-lift the locks got fashion week goers #RedkenReady just before stepping in front of the lens of street style photographers or into the tents for the shows.

We had such a blast playing hair fairy godmothers! We met so many fabulous people outside the tents that day and learned lots of valuable tips and tricks from the Redken team. Missed out on the fun? Don’t fret – we’re giving away a $250 personalized Redken hair care prize pack to one lucky reader of The Backseat Stylers! Contest rules are below. Good luck, ladies and gents!

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 24, 2014 Edition


Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit, Vancouver/New York

This week, Canadian style bloggers got their fuzz on.

Vanessa sported a standout orange matched set by Toronto native Kaelen, pairing it with a cobalt blue bag for an eye-catching colour duo. Lookbook newcomer Kaylee took to the Toronto Fashion Week tents in a chic blanket wrap skirt, a creation by P.E.I.-based brand Dreamboat Lucy. Nelia donned a bright white faux fur jacket that was the perfect contrast to her new platinum locks.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 17, 2014 Edition


Alanna Durkovich of Xander Vintage, Vancouver

This week’s Lookbook is all about fashion firsts.

Lisa was the first to rock a look from the highly anticipated Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration (#NBD), Sasha was the first to sport a piece from the 424 Fifth Fall collection we’ve been obsessing about for months, and Nelia was the first to ever make us consider going grey on purpose as she debuted her new platinum ‘do.

We may be hanging out in the backseat, but our favourite Canadian style bloggers sure aren’t – they’re right at the forefront of the scene.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 10, 2014 Edition


Lisa Dengler of Just Another Fashion Blog, Toronto/New York

One of the few reasons why we’re willing to accept the colder temperatures and increased frequency of rain that come with fall is the footwear. It’s prime time for prancing around in mensy loafers, brogues and oxfords, and we couldn’t be more delighted.

It turns out style bloggers across the country feel the same way. This week, Lisa sported a pair of to-die-for black and white loafers, Ania rocked a pair of edgy, pointy-toe lace-ups, and Krystin donned a pair of classic, tasseled beauties.

We’ll take a pair of each, please.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 3, 2014 Edition


Nelia Belkova of Style Blog, Toronto

Last week’s takeover of the Canadian style blogs by pretty dresses did not wane this week; ’tis the season, it seems.

This week, Liz sported the sweetest blue frock complete with bow and ruffles, Sonya paired a beautiful floral number with fierce leopard print pumps, and Nelia rocked an uber-cool printed Clover Canyon design (we’re obsessed).

Time to break out those dresses – special occasion not required.

Nothing signals the arrival of fall more than the return of plaid to the wardrobe rotations of bloggers across the country. From an uber-cool tartan suit on Lyndsey in Edmonton to the requisite chic boyfriend blazer on Krystin in Toronto, plaid is back and bigger than ever.

Will you be rocking the trend this fall?

Sonya Esman of Class Is Internal, Toronto

From ruffles to pastels, this week it was all about the pretty dresses on the Canadian style blogs.

Our favourite bloggers all got the same memo: Sonya in an off-the-shoulder number, Ania in a frilly pink frock, Kimberly in a to-die-for LRD, and even Vanessa in a lovely, lilac dress. Did you?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – September 12, 2014 Edition


Alyssa Lau of Ordinary People, Edmonton

With NYFW in full swing this past week, the sartorial diaries of Canadian style bloggers who’d made the trek to the Big Apple provided plenty of Lookbook fodder.

From an all-white ensemble on Alyssa (snapped by The Sartorialist himself, no less) to a matchy-matchy green getup on Lisa to high shine co-ordinated looks on the Beckerman twins, Canadian style was well represented on the fashion week street style scene. Wouldn’t you say?
