All That Social Media Stress…Time to Unplug?

Let’s face it.  You can’t live with it, nor can you live without it.  Many, many of us are addicted to it.  At the same time, however, it’s causing A LOT of stress.  With everything going on in the world, one’s news feed is pretty much inundated with other people’s opinions, often saying how they’re […]

It’s New York Fashion Week and I Don’t Care…

In fact, I have no plans to watch anything they’re streaming.  I just don’t seem to care anymore.  It’s not that I don’t like clothing or because I feel like the styles don’t apply to me, it’s just that it’s not something I’m not interested in writing much about anymore.  I feel like my posts […]

Do All Immigrant Experiences Count? Or Just SOME?

Everyone, important or not, seems to be writing or talking about their own immigrant experience or that of their family members.  That they came to escape persecution.  So here’s my piece.  Most of you know I’m a first generation Canadian born Canadian (or if you want to be ethnically accurate, Canadian born Chinese).  My parents […]

Let’s Face it – We’re B!tches to Each Other…

 …and I’m not the first to write about this.  Yes, ladies, we’re mean.  We hate each other and we’re often WORSE to one another than men are to us.  Most of us grew up hating our mothers criticizing us for what we did, yet as adults, we do the same to one another – especially […]

Winterlicious Reservations Starts TODAY (January 12)!!!!!!!

Who is excited for Winterlicious?  The twice-annual ____licious (winter and summer) commences on January 26 and will continue for two weeks.  Many of the regulars are back, including La Societé, Boulud and Oliver & Bonnocini Bayview Village (I always wonder why it’s THAT location rather than, say, Front Street.  Shouldn’t there be some sort of […]

Do You Have a ‘Regular Look’? I Do!

I don’t profess to having a daily “uniform” a la Carolina Herrera or Mark Zuckerberg – as in I don’t wear the exact same thing daily.   However, I have a go-to “look” which changes depending on the season.  When it’s cooler out (say, October to late April or so), I like my long sweaters or […]

Happy 2017 and an (Eventual) New Look!

DelectablyChic!  will be more personal this year.  Things have been changing for me – focusing more on philanthropy advice than attending events, for example, has made writing more than once or twice a week more difficult – especially when it comes to researching areas in beauty, fashion and food. F0r 2017, I’m going to focus […]

Toronto Fashion Week is Back!

According to BlogTO, anyway. Toronto Fashion Week will now run by Peter Freed of Freed Developments and will be held in Yorkville rather than David Pecault Square, essentially a late trade with TIFF (The Toronto International Film Festival). TIFF, after all, used to be mostly in Yorville. This probably means it will be held in […]

Favourites and Discoveries at the One of a Kind Show!

I had the opportunity to attend a media preview/opening day of this season’s One of a Kind Show, and many of DelectablyChic!’s most loved vendors are back at this season’s show.  While I have some spring-only favourites, I have to say that I see MORE of them at the holiday season show.  Highlights include: BLINK […]
