This February, for the first time in 8 years, I decided to go to a fashion week after I received numerous invitations from amazing shows and even though I was only there for the last 4 days and it rained like hell on my one full fashion day, I really enjoyed it. My hair didn’t, but that’s a different story (it’s me on the left in the photo below!)
Here are the best looks from rainy and cold NYFW fall 2018 streets, full of color and suits.
Last week I was in Tulum for only 4 days, which may be too short a period of time for some people given all the expenses and the effort to go all the way from Canada, but for me it was like a therapy. It was more than a therapy really, I struggled with severe winter depression for the entire month of December (happens to me every winter unfortunately, but only gets worse and worse every year) and spending care-free time with my husband in paradise was exactly what I needed to feel alive again.

It’s a tale as old as digital age; Toronto and Drake, LA Lakers and Jack Nicholson, Copenhagen and Ganni. It’s one of those things that makes it what it is, and Ganni managed built its audience increasingly over the past years with the help of Instagram, crazy cool Danish girls followed by crazy cool girls everywhere around the world. They are the main reason Copenhagen is a superstar on the fashion calendar now and they are successfully walking the asymmetrical, printed road ACNE paved for them. Structured effortless is my favorite style code, and they nailed it more than ever in this Fall 2018 collection.
I remember the time when haute couture fashion week was my least favorite in terms of street style scene because everyone felt the need to dress accordingly and some of them looked like they ran out of their *very* fancy prom. Then, after a couple of years, they luckily realized that they don’t actually have to dress “couturesque” to attend the shows and finally we started getting some real inspiration. Now, together with Scandinavian fashion weeks, it’s a lovely stop right before fashion month. Here are some of my favorites!
Saoirsie Ronan in Louis Vuitton
This year I decided not to write anything about the Golden Globe Awards red carpet neither on the blog nor on Twitter, because it was ludicrous and superficial to compete dresses on an event where the message was so much stronger than fabric. But now that the #TimesUp movement is off the red carpet and more on the stage at SAG Awards, I felt like I can go back to picking my favorite looks – because there were SOME.
Even though she didn’t make many people’s lists, Saoirsie Ronan is my favorite in her pink Louis Vuitton and messy hair. She is my new red carpet star and I’m always looking forward to seeing what she’ll wear. Margot Robbie, Allison Williams and Natalia Dyer were tied for the second spot as they all looked dreamy; with Millie Bobby Brown, Yara Shahidi and Olivia Munn not so far behind…
