Went down to Holts to check out the blogger windows, and they’re fantastic! I was a little disappointed though that the Bryan Boy window and Garance Dore window were both still unfinished, or maybe being re-touched, (the curtains were down). Yet another excuse to visit Holt Renfrew again! I took some pictures, sadly I realized after that day time is the wrong time to take pictures when glass is involved, you can see me and everything else reflected. I’d like to direct you to http://www.thestylespy.com/, where Erica Lam has posted some much better quality pics of the windows.
So this is my first post where I’m feeling less than happy. Why is it that so many people see fashion, (the purchasing of shoes, clothes, accessories, etc) as a waste of time and money? Because they don’t understand the passion behind it. Clothes are art for the body, what you wear expresses who you are. Shoes, in my opinion are more of an art form than say some odd sculpture, they transform your mood, your stature and your look. (And they act as art, well mine do, sitting atop shelves, tables, and sometimes the fridge-I want to see the sparkly Miu Mius every minute!).
This is Monika, doing club wear, we’re identical twins. I think she looks a little bit Bridgette Bardot, (in her younger years obviously), with this styling. I don’t know where her clothes are from, but I do know that she is wearing a gorgeous skirt that I made back in high school for one of my sewing projects. Love that it is being worn!
Top: Tailored navy blazer with white shirt, (and gold cufflinks!), charcoal fitted jeans and vintage black patent leather shoes. (Don’t worry, I’m not gonna mention that you were wearing an “H” belt).
There is nothing like hopping around Main St. on a sunny Sunday morning, (which is more like 11-3am, because who gets up earlier than 10 on a Sunday?). Today was the day of the Recessionista Shopping Event at Heritage Hall on Main, which I have been looking forward to for weeks! A room packed with local designers selling their items for $25 and under, obviously I’m so there. And all who went got a gift bag with a free yoga session coupon, and 3 free tanning coupons, (hello instant beach body!). I got an amazing “gold” coral ring that has “diamonds” set into the coral, fake, obviously, but gorgeous all the same.
These are my glass slippers. Beautiful shoes that are annoyingly fragile. I remember seeing them in Chanel’s denim/USA collection, and then I went to NYC, and there was a sale… and now they live in my shoe closet. They’ve already been repaired once, and now they’re retired until another very special occasion. The heel looks inspired by the Empire State building, utterly fabulous.
One of my very favourite dresses, I’m always asked where I got this dress. And I would certainly never tell anyone that I got it at H&M and only paid $15 for it… I think it’s best with fabulous shoes, like black patent peep toe Elie Tahari pumps. (Oops, wardrobe malfunction with the hanger strap showing)
My first skate photography! I can’t skate to save my life, but I think it’s pretty great to watch, so I went with a couple girlfriends over to the RDS Block Party on Lonsdale Ave yesterday to catch some rays and check out the skills of the local skaters. Skaters have a pretty defined style, lots of bold colours and lots of matching, check out the pic of the girl with the neon green high tops.
