More Fashionable Looks From TIFF 2014

There are so many celebrities coming in and out of Toronto, it’s so hard to keep track of them. Just when I think that’s it, there’s more! TIFF regulars including Keira Knightley and Julianne Moore were present this week for their new movies and they packed some heavy-hitting clothes with them. Reese Witherspoon stunned on the red carpet twice and Tina Fey and Jennifer Garner took the little black dress to whole different levels.

I love that Jessica Chastain, Julianne Moore and Keira Knightley wore white after Labour Day. Can we put that silly rule to rest?

Which TIFF 2014 look are you coveting?

Chic and Quirky Accessory Finds

Have you ever read the street-style section on your favourite fashion website and coveted the quirky accessories of the subjects? Whether it was a lion pin or over-the-top hat, you may have thought about owning something just as unique. Items that eschew the typical often get the most compliments and can land you in the street-style section yourself. If you’re a major fashion buff then you know it’s all about staying ahead of the curve.

This week, The Peacock Parade is offering a stunning selection of uncommon items that will liven up your wardrobe. Need proof? Check out my favourite pieces from this week’s sales.

Mirrored and reflective sunglasses are hotter than the sun they’re protecting you from. These awesome GUFO shade will keep you cool in more ways than one.
