Winning the Mapleview Blogger Challenge & ELLE Canada Feature

This has truly been an amazing and exciting week! The fun started when I attended the Mapleview Muse Summer Soiree on Wednesday.

With Krystin from Suburban Faux Pas, Jenelle from Nelle Creations and Dee from Liner, Glitter, Gloss

Earlier in the summer, I had been contacted by Mapleview Centre to participate in their Curated for a Cause contest - three local bloggers (including me) were given a $200 giftcard and asked to style a mannequin (view all the mannequins here). Customers were asked to vote on their favorite outfit - and the blogger with the most votes would get $500 for a charity of their choice.

Jacket: H&M / Shirt: H&M / Necklace: F21 / Shoes: F21 / Bag: F21 / Jeans: True Religion

My chosen charity was Food for Life, and I shopped for my mannequin at my favorite stores at Mapleview - H&M and Forever21. Here's the outfit I put together - totally something I would wear, with lots of blush pink and gold!


I was so excited when they announced the results at the Mapleview Soiree - my outfit got the most votes!!! (More on the party and contest results on the Mapleview blog).


On top of that - I found out on Friday that I would be featured on ELLE Canada online as part of their Street Style Hall of Fame - read my interview here. And the perfect end to the week was visiting a vintage Chanel shop and purchasing a classic Double Flap Bag in Lambskin!!! Can't wait to share it on the blog in a future post.

Linking up with More Pieces of Me and Sincerely Jenna Marie, Rachelle and Cha Cha for #HowISummer..
