Fashion Week Style

The Skyy Is The Limit as we hit the halfway point of Fashion Week!  Everyone is in great spirits and the cool outfits keep on coming.  We attached some of our favorite looks from New York Fashion Week, Fall 2015.   These outfits feel authentic, unique and just the right amount aspirational.

VTCO Fall 2015

The VCTO Fall 2015 returns on Thursday, October 8th 2015 from 5:00 – 11:00 PM!  We are super stoked to be participating again as it has been one of our favorite events.  If you are unfamiliar with the VCTO, let us Filthy gals getcha up to date on this awesome event.

The VCTO is an acronym for Vintage Crawl Toronto Ontario.  The vintage crawl happens twice a year, each Spring and Fall, and helps connect shoppers to the stores and small business owners in their neighbourhoods.  For the event, stores on the crawl stay open very late and host special sales, events and attractions to lend the night a fun, party atmosphere. Each store is open to the public and there is no cost to attend. Crawlers are invited to pick a neighbourhood and hit as many or as few stores as they please over the course of the evening.  You never know what you’ll find during VCTO, so start your night early and stay up late!

The VCTO helps connect shoppers to the stores and small business owners in their neighbourhoods, breeding a sense of community within the larger city as well as helping consumers find a fun way to reduce, reuse and recycle. VCTO believes shopping local has a strong positive impact on our communities and shopping vintage a fun, stylish way to keep used garments in circulation.

Filthy Rebena will be selling at The Yukon Bar in Parkdale – which is honestly one of our favorite watering holes.

Creeper Boots

awang-bootsPop impresarios and style stalwarts Rihanna and Madonna have already been spotted wearing Alexander Wang’s Fall 2015 ’90s platform goth combat boots, and it’s a sure-tell sign we’ll soon all be pounding the concrete in these heavily-studded clod-hoppers.

boots2Clomp! Clomp! Clomp! That’s the sound of a fashion trend coming your way.

boots1I know, I know – heaps of folks are calling these creeper shoes “ugly-pretty” – but Madge and RiRi have really demonstrated their versatility and charm. For a pared-down look, take a cue from Bad Gal and style them simply with a pair of dark leggings, an oversized bomber jacket, a nondescript sweatshirt and dark sunglasses. The look is one part “Hot Topic mallrat”, one part “incognito Brunch ensemble”.

The burgundy variation of the boot.

Off to a more decadent affair? Try the Material Girl’s approach: toughen up a prim skirt silhouette with leather, fur and plenty of fishnet stockings. The bulkiness of the shoe will make an otherwise overdone lewk a little more chill – a little more unexpected.
