Happy (almost) February, guys! It’s officially less than two hours until we bid adieu to January 2014, and I for one couldn’t be happier. If I haven’t made it already abundantly clear, I am the most ready for Spring to arrive. Shooting Spring editorials (not to mention perusing through Haute Couture Week archives) certainly does that to a girl. So if I can’t have Spring right away, then I guess I’ll have to settle for being one month closer to it. Hello, February!
With this festive, Cupid-filled month comes Holt Renfrew‘s annual Well Dressed for Spring fashion show and fundraiser in support of Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation. Taking place this year on Monday, February 24th at Holts itself, you can bet I’m already counting down the days. Seriously, fashion, shopping, and wine? For a good cause? This is my kind of evening. That’s not to mention the celebs and execs that’ll be strutting the catwalk. Uh… yes please.
