From Meetings to Male Models

I thought it was time to do another post like Career to Cocktails that shows how to transform an outfit (or in this case a skirt) from day to evening.  This skirt was a recent purchase from Gap, that I couldn't resist with its silky softness, horizontal stripes and reduced price of $19.99 (original price of $54.99). 

This is how I wore the skirt during the day- meeting with clients and colleagues in an action packed work day.  I added the purple top to brighten up the look and kept my accessories muted and neutral.

Skirt- Gap; Blouse- Smart Set; Boots-Aldo; Purse- Thrifted; Watch- Fossil; Necklace- The Bay
 And then it was time to play! I met up with Twenty York Street, The Fashion Keeper, Pop Champagne; and Demu  at a male model underwear fashion show hosted by Stroked Ego and Blackbook Lifestyle, held at The Flamingo, Ottawa's newest gay club. I even got to meet two local fashion bloggers for the first time, Along the Shore and Collections and Creations. For this event I thought thigh high pleather boots and a faux fur vest would do the trick (although fur in a nightclub is not the best idea for climate control!)

If you're wondering where all the photos of the muscled men in tighty whiteys are, let's just say I'm trying to keep this blog as family friendly as possible ;)

Skirt- Gap; Tank & Belt- Thrifted; Clutch & Belt- Thrifted; Boots- Aldo; Fur & Ring- Vintage; Earrings- Roots; Headband-Forever 21; Nail polish- Coral Pink by Sally Hansen

    And a "male model underwear fashion show"?! Doesn't sound kosher to me! Sounds more like an excuse for you gals to ogle some cute guys!
