The blog is back baby, and dare I say with a vengeance. This year I'm joined by six fabulous fashion centric babes to write about the Saskatoon fashion scene, and to highlight the designers and boutiques at the Spring 2016 Festival!
To kick off the blog, I would like to introduce the team which includes a diverse group of writers, and our very own blog stylist and photographer. Enjoy today's blog, as each member dishes on juicy fashion reads, must watch netflix shows, 2016 style, and favourite quotes. Make sure to stay tuned for upcoming posts because this is a blog you won't want to miss (prizes anyone? wink wink).
Happy reading :)
