Fall into Fashion Makeover Challenge

What do you get when you put 3 fashion and lifestyle bloggers in Fairview Mall for 3 hours and give each of them a $250 shopping budget?

A lot of excitement, creativity and friendly competition of course!

The Challenge:

Lisa and I were chosen to participate in Fairview's Fall Makeover Challenge alongside Mandy from and Michelle from Our mission was to surprise one random shopper with a beauty makeover. We had three hours to check out 175 shops and create a fun outfit within a $250 budget.

Our Lucky Shopper Is...

Kristen was enjoying her last day of freedom before heading back to Queen's University when we spotted her and her mom shopping at Fairview Mall.

Kristen is an OT grad student so we made sure her Back-To-School look was chic enough for coffee dates around campus but at the same time comfy enough to sit through an afternoon of lectures.

The Look:

Kristen was already rocking skinny jeans and cute ballet flats. We added these personal hip + urban touches...

Stripes are still in! We chose a navy and green sweater from H&M ($18) and layered it under a cozy grey cardigan from Aritzia ($110). These pieces can easily be worn together or separately with jeans. Fashion tip: accessorize the look with a thin braided brown or black belt.

Life on the go! This tote from Aldo Accessories will become Kristen's BFF this year - carrying her laptop, textbooks, snacks, cell phone and wallet. It's stylish, functional and only $45 bucks!

Leap over leaf piles! We added a shiny touch to Kristen's outfit with a simple golden leaf necklace that we scored at Aldo Accessories for $8.

Late night studying, partying or both? No worries, Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream ($45) from Sephora has got Kristen covered the next morning. This multitasking tinted cream with SPF 35 moisturizes, primes, perfects, controls oil, and protects for flawless skin in the classroom and beyond.

We completed Kristen's Fall Look with a salon blowout from Deberardinis. The loose curls made Kristen's stick straight hair fuller and flirtier.

Voila, a brand new Kristen!

We think Kristen's style deserves an A+ but what do you think?

Check out Fairview's Facebook page and vote for your favourite look. The winner will be featured in Fairview’s cover photo for a month. Let's hope Kristen wins!
