Fashion Forward

I resisted the temptation to go with some further alliteration in the title there, what with being Full of Fabulous...

Last evening, Uptown Saint John played host to scores of locally fashionable ladies, all ages, all sizes & all styles.  I joined in the festivities fashionably late, missing the kick off but my date Pam & I were happy shoppers non the less...

                                               Underground parking photo shoot anyone??

Fashion Forward was a shop hop of the grandest kind featuring sales, discounts, giveaways, finger foods, wine, demonstrations... wine. Oh, did I mention wine??

All the fashionable were out & uptown! We stumbled across two of my favorite bloggers & one fab-u-lous hairdresser all out front of local shop Je Suis Prest.

Melissa of Sigh Gush Gasp

Adam from Hairacy, working his magic!

So besides the beautiful people there was some serious shopping to be done! I found myself 'head over heels' in love with this particular pair of booties at Manchester Shoes in Market Square.  The boutique was offering 20% during the event... take one guess if these are mine now?

I also scored some new accessories from Silver Daisy Designs & the chance to win a Marc Jacobs bag (which unfortunately/fortunately was won by my lovely friend Melissa, pictured above! Congrats!!). I'll save showing those off until I wear them with the perfect outfit!

Speaking of outfit here are a couple last pictures of mine from the night...! (Thanks Pam for being my photographer!)

Top& Jeans/Forever 21+
I am loving this top from Forever 21! I have been saving it for this particular night out & wish I could have snapped a picture of the back with the mesh & zipper but sadly it slipped my mind. *bad blogger*

Hair by Moi!
 I was extremely proud of my hair.. having actually done it myself. I'm mostly posting this picture for the benefit of my BFF stylist Vanessa... just to prove how far I've come (seriously hair incompetent most of my life, relying heavily on her dear sweet patient ways!!)!

pathetic iPhone self portrait to end the night

Tonight I will be attending the New Brunswick Fashion Week Gala event, yet another excuse to look fabulous. Hopefully that post will go up this weekend! Also stay tuned next week for a new 'Boutique Talk' piece & a long postponed 'Shopping Cart' feature! Plenty going on in this life that is so Full of Fabulous...


  1. You looked adorable last night. Glad you found some good stuff. You'll just have to make sure Melissa shares (see my blog today for good friend handbag sharing!) once she's gotten some use out of her prize!

  2. Oh my you look great! And your hair...the colour is divine and I love it up like that.

    It sounds like the event was a great time!

  3. Great night, great folks & great deals!

    & thanks Leigh Ellen!

  4. Love that top, you look fabulous! And is it just me, or does Chelsea look a bit like Molly Ringwald?!
