During my trip to NYFW, I wanted to represent Canadian fashion south of the border, and I was so excited to team up with Joe Fresh for a couple of looks. I wore a Joe Fresh striped dress with a chic Mackage coat for a comfortable look I wore while taking in the shows and shopping around SoHo. It was so freezing, that I only wanted to be uncomfortable in one way, so I decided to freeze instead of subjecting my feet to running around in heels all day. I noticed a lot more girls at fashion week skipping heels in favour of chic ankle boots and flat over the knee boots, and I thought my lace up flats were a great way to add interest to my outfit.
I’m wearing a Joe Fresh striped dress (c/o), a wool coat by Mackage, an Alexander Wang Prisma backpack, tights c/o Secret and lace up flats from Old Navy (oh yes, believe it!) that are sold out, but here’s a similar pair.

I was so excited to finally discover the SoHo fashion and shopping district, because I ran out of time the last couple of times I visited the city. I went shopping at Anna Sui, Frye, Stuart Weitzman and peeked into Repetto. The dollar made it impossible to shop, but I was over the moon from my new Anna Sui garter tights and a box full of Ladurée Macarons.
After spending a couple hours in SoHo, I headed off to the Leanne Marshall show, and as I was on my feet all afternoon, I was grateful for picking this comfortable outfit. My Joe Fresh striped dress is actually a fine knit and has three-quarter length sleeves, which makes it versatile for both the winter and spring weather. I accessorized with a gold choker, and a matching green pompom on my purse.
As for my hair, I was able to get the runway look from the Leanne Marshall show featuring the intricate macrame ponytail! The wind kind of blew it away, but it was such a pretty, undone look.
I definitely enjoyed shopping in SoHo, it was a lot more relaxed than Fifth or Herald Square and had many mid and high end brands. I can’t wait to visit the area again when I’m not darting between shows and have more time to grab brunch and do some window shopping at Chloé.
Thank you to Joe Fresh for teaming up with me for fashion week!
