This summer weather in spring is extraordinary and I totally took advantage of it today!
This is my outfit of the day.
Saturday morning breakfast at Alforno Bakery & Café. I ordered the sweet and delicious Ricotta Hotcakes. Served warm with honey butter ready to melt on top and yummy berry mix.
The Gravlax Eggs Benedict looked too good to eat!
Supper time came and we checked out Boxwood. I loved the location, it was on the edge of a little park in the city surrounded by trees. We tried a variety of dishes at this farm to table restaurant. To share we ordered the Charcuterie Board, Albacore Tuna Tataki, Organic Chickpea Quinoa & Okanagan Apples Salad, Whole Rotisserie Rainbow Trout, and Mountain View Organic Chicken.
For a late night snack we walked over to Village Ice Cream. I could smell the waffle cones getting made as we entered. With so many great homemade flavors, it was hard to choose! I decided on a single scoop of Cardamom Ice Cream served in a freshly made waffle cone and I was not disappointed with my choice.
The next day for brunch we walked over to Blue Star Diner. To start my day right I ordered the Back Bacon & Grilled Tomato Bennie. The lunch options looked amazing too, below is the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Burger.
I can’t wait to go back to Calgary and eat at more great places!
On Tuesday Averynthe (Calgary) collection came out powerful with a light thin black material. The ladies rocked it as they flowed down the runway. My favorite feature – The Cape Belt – Of course!
My Wednesday night favorite was the local LUX Ready to Wear. The collection has a great selection of business ready attire. My favorite feature – A sparkly black material that shone and sparkled with every move the models took. It looked like twinkling stars lived in their outfits.
Special Mention – Tuesday’s Trippy Hippy’s collection brought so much color and fun to the runway. The quilted outfits with glitter hair were a party for the eyes.
All of Saturday night’s Western Canada Fashion Week show was, Amazing!
Nina Nayema necklaces were layered and some hung down the back and every model rocked the shoes.
Africastyle Fashion both men and women styles were highlighted by colorful patterns. I loved the look of light weight material.
Tishynah Buffalo Designs had bold patterns & combined soft and strong fabrics. The bead work on the necklaces and earrings were my favorite accessories of the night.
Tounkara had a contrast of light summer dresses in vivid colors with necklaces that had strong cuts to them that added nicely to the patterns.
Shankar Couture’s sparkle and glitter looked great on the runway. Each dress had its own detailed pattern done with bead work.
Creations Youd rocked it with beautifully patterned hoods. The flowing capes made an entrance – I need one!
I can’t wait to see more shows this week!
