When CBC Live
visited the set of This Hour Has 22 Minutes
, our team discovered the origin story of Marg Delahunty
's Warrior Princess battle togs. You might take that info as inspiration for this year's Halloween
costume. But with Toronto World Mastercard Fashion Week
happening from now through October 26, we've got other sorts of wardrobe-planning on our minds.
But there are few who've redefined CBC style like Mary Walsh character Marg Delahunty Warrior Princess. Stay gold and stay fierce this Fashion Week by taking inspiration from her.
This swing-skirted party dress is our blank canvas for all all the brassy accessories you can lift without getting a hernia. By the time you're done, you should look like you're armour-plated.
Just $10.80 a piece, start with one for each wrist. Or pretend you're living on a senator's salary and splurge on so many they'll reach your elbows.
3. "Twisted Warrior" Earrings (ASOS)
We're pretty sure these "Twisted Warrior" earrings were named after Marg herself.
4. Spiked Epaulettes (ASOS)
A flashy upgrade to Marg's traditional shoulder armour. Warning: may discourage congratulatory pats on the back.
It's not quite big enough to carry your sword, but this Michael Kors clutch should at least have room for your Fashion Week essentials.
6. "Treasure Doing Business With You" Necklace (Mod Cloth)
Only Mr. T loves gold chains like Marg does, and this single piece is a 4-for-1 deal, combining several brassy strands in one.
Marg's favourite frames in her favourite brassy metallic. Someone should tell her she can get 'em at Top Shop.
8. Cuffed Black and Gold Suede Pumps (Fendi)
These shoes cost more than the entire outfit combined. But a princess, warrior or not, loves luxury.
Toronto World Mastercard Fashion Week runs October 21 - 26.
