I had an amazing day yesterday in Toronto. It was my sister's birthday this week, and as her big present we went to see Cavalia's Odysseo. I also went to see the special Picasso exhibition at the AGO before the show. I was very excited to see the exhibit because, ironically enough, when I was in Paris this past winter the Picasso exhibit was closed for renovation. I was also excited because I knew the AGO had this great gallery space, perfect for a photo shoot.
I wanted to emulate the feel of Cavalia by dressing in this circus-esque type outfit. This is actually a top and skirt combination that just happened to match perfectly. The top is from Anthropologie, and the skirt is from Benton. I couldn't believe it when the two colour of blue matched up perfectly, it's as if they are from the same bolt of fabric. This top is an absolute favourite of mine, the silhouette is so beautiful, and the back is actually a corset type construction.
This is one of my favourite bracelets. I own a lot of blue it would seem, so I end up wearing it a lot. What I like about it is the combination of beads, there are glass, plastic, painted, and even ones with fabric on them. I was so happy when someone complimented me on it.
Cavalia was an amazing show. It had such a good reception that it was held over twice, luckily for us. I love looking at all the amazing outfits. I have never been to a circus, but this is how I would imagine the outfits would look like. Some of the most impressive ones are in the photo pictured above. What I love about these ones, is that the back of the dress covered the horse, it's the closest they were going to get to dressing the horses. The colours were amazing, and all of the outfits were a multicolored spectacle.
