Today's Outfit: From the Office to the Runway

Last week, I found myself rushing from late nights at the office to 8pm fashion shows at BC Fashion Week. The problem? Dressing appropriately for both places. The solution? An outfit that didn't show too much skin, wasn't so flashy that I'd look out of place at work yet still looked presentable when I was schmoozing with some of Vancouver's most fashionable folks.

On top of this outfit, I donned my new blue-green wool coat from Togs, my "payment" for another round of copywriting. This coat was a sample for a design that never went into production, so it's truly one-of-a-kind. I like how the hip length is perfect for pairing with mini dresses and shorter skirts, allowing a bit of the hem to peek out from underneath. A big thank you to Jenny and Tabitha of Two of Hearts!
