Circus Style

Step right up, the Big Top Booby Circus is coming to town! That’s right, Rethink Breast Cancer’s annual Boobyball is back for its 13th year in Toronto on Friday, October 17th. And if you haven’t already guessed, this year’s bash will be circus-themed.

The first-ever Boobyball took place in 2002 and was founded by a group of young women looking to support a beloved friend who – at just age 23 – was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. To date, the coveted fundraiser has raised close to 3-million dollars for Rethink Breast Cancer and become one of the hottest yearly events in Toronto. In 2011, the event spread to Calgary and this year will also mark the first Boobyball event in Winnipeg.

What do you wear to a circus-themed party? Here are two circus-inspired outfits I put together in support of this year’s Boobyball events. Can you guess which look I’ll be wearing tomorrow evening? Follow me on Instagram @Style_Parade to find out!

Opera Glam

Operanation is a glamorous affair held yearly in Toronto by the Canadian Opera Company. This Thursday evening I will be attending the 11th annual gala at the COC’s architecturally stunning Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.

Operanation: Light Up the Night is sure to not disappoint. In addition to being recently named “the charity event of the fall season” by, the fundraiser, which raises money for the COC’s Ensemble Studio, is guaranteed to bring out Toronto’s most glamorous.

I’ve always enjoyed getting dressed up for events such as parties, fundraisers, and formal dinners. One of my favourite things about attending these types of events is finding the perfect dress! Here are two opera gala fashion looks I created to celebrate Light Up The Night. Can we please talk about this dazzling, cobalt blue Aidan Mattox gown?

Follow me on Instagram @Style_Parade to find out which look I will be wearing Thursday!
