From Runway to Work & Play with Rachel Sin

Toronto Fashion Week came and went without my usual visit to the tents but there's only one show I regret missing. A regular on the Ottawa Fashion Week runway, Toronto-based Rachel Sin showed not one, but two collections of her timeless, feminine classics with flare at David Pecaut Square.

I've always admired Rachel Sin pieces because of their simple elegance and versatility along with their attainable price points so it seemed quite natural to me that her two-part runway show was dubbed as #RSWork and #RSPlay. In reality, the work collection is this season's structured dresses and separates in jewel tones and neutrals while the play section featured flirty silhouettes in pastels and prints for spring 2015 that I'd still parade in the office in warmer months.

After taking in the show front row couch online, here's what I'm loving:

For Fall / Winter (a.ka. #RSWork) sexy details that show as much or as little as you want to bare. Bold colbalt blues and rich garnet shades anchored by basic black and white. 

Winning Look: Zipper Dress in Oxblood with a wrap plunge lapel neckline that unzips to show tons of leg but can be made ultra conservative all zipped up and with a cami underneath. Get a similar look online

For Spring / Summer 2015 (a.k.a #RSPlay) the pencil skirts had me whether they be solid, blocked or printed all the way through. The range of tops from cropped to blazer equal something for every occasion as well. 

Winning Look: Not quite sure my abs will be nearly steel-y enough after delivering my second born come March but the sweet buttercup crop top with that meadow floral print pencil skirt is so fabulous.

I guess sometimes a girl's gotta work (out) if she wants to play though, right?
