Ottawa Fashion Week S/S 2012 Pt1

As Ottawa Fashion Week continues here are some pictures of some of my favorites so far. It was hard choosing what to post from the 300 photos on my SD card, especially when we're talking about the dresses from Birds of North America, furry friends from Pica Jewelry and Amber Watkins' swimsuits.

Picking my favorite photos to post was hard. It's like asking my parents who their favorite daughter is (obviously me, why would I say otherwise on my blog?). Regardless, after some sorting here are my picks. I hope you won't think that I will be a bad mother one day. Don't worry, I promise that I'll only booze when they cry too much.

 Hello amazing body with awesome Amber Watkins bow goody! Let's move on since I've been slacking at the gym...

Amber Watkins with Pica jewelry

Tailored coats from RUD by Rudsak, for looking classy when you flash people- You can be the classiest flasher in town: 1, 2, 3 WHOOP.

 In LOVE with those leggings from Birds of North America

Isn't this Birds of NA dress adorable? And doesn't the model look like she's ready to pick some strawberries under the rainbow singing to some Katy Perry song?

The back of this Simon Ekrelius dress is neat. I sense a Pop Champagne inspired DIY coming up with some 8.5x11 paper. Just kidding. Kinda...

Love the design of this Valerie Dumaine dress, especially the drape in the front to give illusion of boobs for small boob ladies like myself... Whatever man, guys pad their unit for underwear shoots all the time.


  1. Wow, the Valerie Dumaine piece is a dress? I love the drape and the shoes on the model.

    Love the color tones from Amber Watkins and the tailored coats is probably my favorite piece!

    1. Nice post! Beautiful nailpolishes!!!

  2. I love the birds of NA dress! So cute! It is something I would wear! :D

  3. Amazing pictures Pop. I loooove the white and black trench. I agree with the draping on the Valerie Dumaine, gorgeous.

  4. the birds of na dress is really beautiful! They are all so beautiful! How tall do you have to be to be a model? And how tall are these?

  5. Oh gosh, the birds of NA dresses are just fab! The blue dress with the sweetheart neckline is my fave! I love dresses with pockets on the side... And that trench coat is just fabulous. All of these photos are amazing, I love it!

  6. Great selections! I really like them all..each one is very unique...though I´m not a big fan of swimwear I admit is really cool!

    The Black Label

  7. Thanks for all the pictures they look great!!! :D lol at how you said your last sentence, so true ~_~

    I like the swimsuit the most! the pearly ribbon strings looks soo cool..if I could get cheap pearls like those I'd probably DIY haha! It looks very transparent though, I don't think anybody needs to zoom in to look at her nipples lol, more like lingerie, would loveee a non transparent black :) and plus the model was wearing pretty bow shoes!

  8. Oh I love the last dress, is totally gorgeous :)

    Thanks for share.
    I hope you are having a pretty weekend!
