out & about

I am without a photographer/boyfriend once again although don't worry it's just temporary, he is travelling on yet another work trip (starts to lose its glamour after a while).  I thought I would share with you some photos of what I've been up to recently in my work life, volunteer life and personal life.  Warning: photo heavy post!

Ringside for Youth

This was a charity boxing event for work held about a month ago, one of my 15 hour long work days!  If any of you are boxing fans, Lennox Lewis was our guest of honour (I had no idea who he was...)

With some of my colleagues.  My Dress- Anthropologie

There were young women flaunting their goodies strutting around to convince the (90% male clientele) to buy raffle tickets and then I swooped in and processed their credit card...
Camp Smitty

This is a kid's summer camp that my organization supports.  We had a team building day a few weeks ago where we helped stain the boy's bathroom.  I disovered that me+manual labour+humidity= heat exhaustion.

Outfit: Just joking ;)

Stepping Out

This was an event for the non-profit organization Dress for Success that I volunteer for.  The theme was "stepping out" so you were supposed to wear your funkiest shoes. 
Shoes- Pour la Victoire, See my outfit here.  {Photo credit: Maureen Murphy}

I am Fashion- Rip the Fab Lane

I helped style the Lilac Lingerie models for this fabulous fashion show, adorning their hair with freshly cut lilacs.

A friend and I had a mini shopping spree at AMH Style Consignment store and here are some of my favourite looks I tried on (I ended up buying the yellow pumps and the purple belt).

Richard Robinson Showcase

I was so excited to attend the Richard Robinson Showcase on behalf of Lilac Lingerie a couple of weekends ago.  I live tweeted the event, took photos and wrote notes (what a multi-tasker!)  The showcase was a 3 hour long fashion show comprised of fashion design students' collections, bustiers, wedding dresses, swimwear, ready-to-wear and couturier pieces.  I was in fashion heaven!
