WMCFW | Day 4 Outfit Wearing Caitlin Power

Things can get uber-glam at the tents around day four; fashionistas are prone to throw a Hail Mary on what is arguably the last chance to score any real street style points (I like to think of day five as a casual Friday – besides if you’re not a zombie in ripped jeans by then, you’re clearly not werking hard enough). 

It just so happened that day four was Caitlin Power‘s Spring 14 show. For those readers who love me long time, you’ll know I am a Power Girl – from her first show at The Drake hotel, to reppin’ her leather runway dress in the streets of NYC – I cease not to champion this young designer. Gosh, I could tell you all about the evolution of the Caitlin Power brand but I will save that for my review of her Spring 14 show, a milestone for the house of CP.

In the meantime, I am beyond honoured to have the designer dress me in her Fall 13 collection on day four. This outfit was a street style shoe-in, featured twice in Toronto Life, most notably as a 10 Best Dressed of Toronto Fashion Week. I drew inspiration from menswear’s le smoking and layered a shiny leather halter top underneath a satin tuxedo vest with a silver metallic lapel. Tuxedo pants finished the look, and two silver cuffs added a symmetry I’ve been dreaming about – under no circumstance should you ever opt for one cuff, it must always be two cuffs, one on each wrist. Ya heard?

The rest was all very rudimentary. A wool trench with alpaca fur collar, oversized faceshields and prissy black suede pumps. Blow-out is optional, although I’d like to argue it so necessary.
