In Collaboration with The Noteworthys Part II - A Night on the Town

I've met so many admirable people this year, among the lot is Nundini Krishan founder of the up-and-coming "The Noteworthys". The Noteworthys is a Toronto-based network which connects clientele to designers.

I'm particularly excited about their project and you can stay in the loop by signing up early here.

I was asked to take part in their very first photoshoot where I got to bring a little of my own personal brand to the scene. In this, part II of my collaboration, I wanted to showcase a feminine look perfect for an evening of cocktails.

This look challenges a conservative color-palette by using surprising textures. The black turtle neck which I found tucked away in the heart of Chinatown has a modest cut, but it's the intricate lace detailing that surprises and delights with hints of skin. It definitely isn't meant for the faint-of-heart and could be easily paired with either a nude or black cami for a more subtle look. The skirt I've chosen to pair this lace number with is from H&M and is made of sweater-material. It's a short fluted skirt which gives the outfit a hint of volume without going overboard.

I didn't want to draw away from the neckline of the shirt, or the detailed lace and so complimented this look with a sleek jeweled headpiece with matching earrings. The sunglasses found in Kensington Market at Bungalow create a little bit of edge to an otherwise feminine look with the dramatic frames. The shoes (unseen) were my favourite silver stilettos from Aldo and I finished this outfit with a mixed metallic clutch and a dark shade of red lipstick bringing in just a suggestion of color.  (You can see them here in my look from World MasterCard Fashion Week).

Would you wear this outfit? Stay tuned for Part III coming up shortly!
