This year I competed in the Mapleview Shopping Center Style Icon challenge. Hundreds of men and women competed and only 80 were chosen to attend the finalist cocktail party where a Style Icon would be chosen, and win a $2000 blogging contract! So how did I do? You are going to have to wait a little longer!
Mapleview has become THE shopping destination for the West End of Toronto. Sitting at the ‘fork’ of the QEW, Mapleview attracts customers from the Niagara region, Hamilton, Cambridge, Oakville, and Mississauga. With the the only Zara, other than Queen West, Yorkdale, and Eaton Center, and the only Forever 21 & Bossa Nova on the west end, Mapleview has definitely been put on the map! Stores such as Aritiza, BCBG, Marciano, Browns, Sephora, Rudsak, Coach, and coming soon Victoria’s Secret & Michael Kors, Mapleview is a very upscale classy mall! Catering to customers from all ages, the young, the business professionals, and the elderly there is something for everyone.
I want to say thank you to the Mapleview production team and Mosha Lundström-Halbert, Associate Fashion News Editor for Flare Magazine, for this wonderful event!
Now for what you have all been waiting for….how I did…*drum roll please* I was chosen as one of the Top 3 finalists!! The task: Create a fall outfit using only a $500 gift card and the Mapleview stores. Time limit: 1 hour! Ready, set, GO! I was off running through the mall in my high heels and with my friendly companion and chaperone Ashley! Unfortunately I did not win, however this was an experience I will never forget! Plus, I got to keep the clothes! I also had the opportunity in meeting one of my role models and one the most famous style and fashion icons in Canada, Mosha Lundström-Halbert, being able to chat with her for a few minutes was MUITO BOM! 🙂 Thank you again Mapleview! You will be seeing me soon!
