Ottawa Fashion Week!

I've been blogging for over four years, writing about everything from parenting to entertainment, so you must have figured out a few things about me by now.

Like the fact that I love my children more than anything in the world.

And the fact that I love summer and the ocean and swimming.

And the fact that I have am a huge shopaholic and get a high from trying on new dresses and buying new designer handbags and sunglasses.

Did I mention shopping and fashion and clothes and designer purses and sunglasses and shoes and department stores? Yes, I'm obsessed with everything fashion related.

And although Ottawa is not really comparable to New York City, we have a fashion week, too!

I'm been invited to attend and cover Ottawa Fashion Week, and I'm very excited to be taking part in all the glamour and fun.

Guess what? I have two day passs (for March 19th) to give away to two of my lucky readers! AND an extra pass to the invitation-only media launch party taking place on Thursday night!

I'm looking forward to attending the OFW launch party, which will be taking place in the newly renovated lounge, Lobby. The fashionable and sophisticated space will provide the fabulous backdrop to the ultimate fĂȘte of fashion here in Ottawa, with Cirque du Soleil like performers, champagne waterfalls, and hors d'oeuvres. Whether at the launch party, or at the actual event taking place at the National Gallery of Canada, you'll be rubbing elbows with foreign delegates, politicians, and socialites.

Ottawa Fashion Week is the most fashionable event in the city and you definitely don't want to miss out on the excitement.

Just leave me a comment below telling me where you love to shop and I will pick three names randomly tomorrow!


  1. mrs loulou, i love shopping @ banana republic and bcbg for my every day clothes. but my passion is my designer purses! when im in a metropolitan city (nyc, chicago, athens, ...) i always indulge myself in a Louis Vuitton or Gucci handbag. they are not only timeless, but they will last me a lifetime. a true investment for the modern urban girl :)


    p.s. i LOVE your blog!!

  2. Strangely - my favourite shop is Value Village. I love to pick out clothes and help my Sweetheart refashion and repurpose them. Creating a whole new look is so cool.

  3. pick me, you know I love a good party :)

    I love shopping at Threadless, although my credit card doesnt enjoy it nearly as much

  4. I love shopping everywhere. I love shoes, bags... Everything.
    I just got back from a trip to Boston where most our free time was spent shopping or sporting our new finds.

  5. One of my favourite places to shop is at Joe Fresh, actually! Some great fun basics there, for sure. Ottawa specific though, I would have to say Allegro or Victoire!
