For the last little while now I’ve been working closely with my friends Michael Nyarkoh, Erixon Bernardo, and my boyfriend Justin Escutin to help develop their up-and-coming menswear brand +Wolfe. I asked Michael to write my blog post because I’m too busy to do it myself:

Wha gwan yutes and waste mans. It’s ya girl B Major AKA BLANCO KILLAH AKA YUNG MEAN MUGGIN QUEEN OF THE GUTTA. I just came back from stuntin’ on the yung hoes and crushing like 3 whole spreads via some herb ass’ tumblrs. Like this is how I live nah mean.

Hey y’all check out my Alfalfa hair!!! Chose to wear something lazy and cozy to work today. Actually, everything I wear is lazy and cozy, especially in the colder months. Tonight I’m going out for the first time in a long time, for my friend’s birthday. Let’s hope I don’t fall asleep before reaching the bar, because my bedtime’s been 10:00 pm lately. Hermit life! Ok bye

The first day of Toronto Fashion Week was amazing! Pink Tartan surprised me with her ultra feminine collection. Plus, her opening and closing model was the one and only Charlotte Free, who is such a relevant model in my eyes that I named my boyfriend’s dog after her. It was her debut on the Canadian runway and Pink Tartan was the ideal brand to feature her.

Yesterday, I watched Evan Biddell and the Mercedes Benz Start-Up Competition on the Toronto Fashion Week runways. I was a huge fan of DUY’s capsule collection and I guess everybody else was in the same boat because the Montreal designer won the competition. I’m excited to see what he comes up with for his sponsored show in March.

I wore an unintentionally fortune-teller-esque outfit including a turban, a mystical necklace, and a cape. I wonder where this weird, subconscious inspiration came from………. Anyway! I’m pictured here with Sarah from Magwood, whose rhinestone hair part totally kicks my regular exposed scalp hair part to the curb.

Tomorrow I’ll be filling you in on the shows I saw tonight – Lucian Matis and Mackage – which were absolutely my favourite so far. Ta ta for now!!!

It’s the first day of Toronto Fashion Week showing collections for spring/summer 2013! Toronto Fashion Week in general is supposed to have been upgraded due to the fact that IMG recently bought it (IMG runs all the major fashion weeks including New York and Milan), but I’m assuming autumn/winter 2013 will be closer to the full-fledged Toronto Fashion Week experience. Still, I’m beyond excited to be there – it’s the first time I’ll be attending pretty much every single show. Tonight is Holt Renfrew and Pink Tartan’s runway, which I’ll be covering for blogTO, so check those posts out tomorrow!

Here’s what I’ll be wearing. I got this beautiful silk slip from Magwood a while ago but haven’t had a chance to wear it… until now. And what perfect time to bring on the gold and black than during a fashion week smack in the middle of the baroque trend?! Man, I am so cool (but only this week).
