Thank you to Vickie for taking these photos!

Saturday and Sunday night were Day 3 and 4 of Western Canada Fashion Week. We've been experiencing a welcomed Indian Summer here in Edmonton so the weather was just beautiful this weekend. I wish it would last so we could skip the -30 degree winter altogether. (Wishful thinking.) I decided to wear my T by Alexander Wang maxi Saturday night to keep me cool and comfy. This dress is the most comfortable piece of clothing I own, I would totally sleep in it if it wouldn't wrinkle! 

Here are some of my favorite looks I spotted on Day 3 of WCFW:

124th St. Showcase: Charming and elegant.

Patricia Glanville. I adored the floral dress in the front.

 Nazila Couture. Such exquisite detailing in the bodice.

This pup stole the show during the showcase sponsored by Mini Edmonton!

And here are some highlights from Day 4:

Mode Models owned the runway in clothing from West Edmonton Mall

The cards the models are holding have the name of the store that the clothing they're wearing came from. (If you're wondering.) Unfortunately I couldn't see them very well. That or I was too busy paying attention to the male models to notice them at all.

Every season Western Canada Fashion Week gives local hair salons a fantastic opportunity to show off their talent and creativity with the Salon Showcase. A student at the Eveline Charles Academy styled this adorable 'do.

This hair "masterpiece" is courtesy of the uber-talented professional creative team at Eveline Charles. The models wore garments made out of garbage bags! Very unique. I should mention that a proud Eveline Charles was actually in the audience that night!

Black Swan


Ricci Hair impressed the audience with their theatrical and spectacular creations titled "Modern Queens."

 Look closely. Do you see the little cross sticking out of the top of the model's hair??

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I'm actually enjoying an extended weekend because I took three much-needed days off from work this week. I need to catch up on my sleep! And use up some of my vacation time. Although the next few days will be anything but a vacation for me with fashion week shows to attend and other exciting things going on in my life right now. Will fill you in soon : ). Have a great week!

Wow, amazing photos! And I love what you wore - that maxi is gorgeous. I also love the photo location - I always wonder why more Edmonton bloggers don't visit there for photos, it's such a great locale.
