There is no such thing as a typical Halloween for a Fashionista, especially not in our magical world. Nurse, school girl & scary witch costumes are not part of our repertoire, instead, we seek the most intricate yet mystically fabulous costumes, which are generally all custom made – besides, who wants to show up to a party wearing the same costume as someone else anyway!?
The above picture represents mystery, seduction with just the right dose of elegance. Liya Amar from La Lilouche is the queen when it comes to creating pieces that encompass all three elements. Our model Aleksandra is wearing Liya’s most lavish robe, accented with a heart-shape cutout at the back from our “Alice meets Sugarland” shoot, photographed by Badger Photography.
Everything we do has to be grand, we have this constant desire to keep reinventing the wheel, injecting a touch of glamour each time. Take our glitter pumpkins for example, it’s not to say that orange Jack O’ Lantern pumpkins aren’t beautiful as they are, “au contraire” – we’re simply enhancing their beauty by raising their glitter bar. The picture below was taken from our Fall “Baking in High Heels” event last Wednesday. Tania Semper & Genevieve Ghaleb were the pumpkin design-istas while Manny from Luluthia added a touch of florals. Aren’t they gorg?

Our favorite part about designing an event is not only seeking the perfect vendors to turn our concept into a reality, but we especially love creating a vision board. As you know, every event should start with a vision / inspiration board, above is a concoction of all the wonderful elements we intend on bringing together at our upcoming “Baking in High Heels” event next Wednesday, October.24th.
Pinterest has served us well in providing us with an abundance of fabulous images to choose from.
This “Baking in High Heels” ~ Fall edition event is all about glitter pumpkins and sweet decor. Watch how we transform PRFKT boutique – a fashionista-must for designer fashions & accessories, into a whimsical fashionista dream, and we couldnt have asked for better partners!
Tania Semper – CEO & Creative mind behind eFashionista, will be tackling the “Baking in High Heels” design job with Genevieve Ghaleb, a Montreal-based design queen, who is not only always dressed to the nines with the most open-minded, yet outgoing personality, but has an expectional eye when it comes to interior design. We’ll be posting about their pumpkin hunting adventure shortly.
Our impeccable floral designs will be made by Manny from Luluthia while our props will be provided by no one other than Joe’s Prop house. They have the best assortment of decorative elements for any intimate-medium sized gathering. They have a true passion for detail and best yet, they are divine to work with.
Our fabulous Signature signage will be designed & printed by Tartine Paperie ~ a brand new design & print boutique, using some design elements from our previous Toronto “Baking in High Heels” graphic designer Kevin Lafleche from Paper Ideas.
Our various sweet tables will be filled with chocolate high heels by L’Artiste Chocolatiere, designer cupcakes by Cupcake et Macaron, designer cookies by L&V Sweets, decorative cupcake boxes by Jules Cupcakes, creamsicle colored meringues & cornettis by La Cornetteria and edible-looking jewelry by Chez Laurette will be displayed for additional eye-candy!
The Food Network SugarStars will be working alongside Matthieu Saunier, the executive chef at Osco restaurant in developing unique and playful edibles. We can’t wait to see what they have planned for us.
Quinn Farm has been wonderfully helpful in provided us with an assortment of pumpkins ranging from big to small, some for baking, others for carving and oddly enough, Gen and Tania loved the pumpkins with odd looking shapes and textures – imperfection proves to be beautiful!

The video we’ve been excited to share with you is finally ready! If you haven’t been keeping tabs on our projects, last month we did a fabulous Boudoir photoshoot at the wonderful St-Martin Hotel in Montreal. We carefully selected hand-made lingerie with bows & frills as the outfit and hired a model with whom possessed a touch of French flair – sweet, flirty & sophisticated was the look we were going for.
“The Making of an eFashionista” will give you an idea of what goes on while our shoots are underway. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to book a Boudoir photography session of your own; firstname.lastname@example.org.
