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 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 […]

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 […]

TTC/National Ballet of Canada vs. Body Image Shows Our Lack of Interest in the Arts

By now, everyone in Toronto has heard about the TTC “We Move You” ad, featuring the National Ballet of Canada, which has caused controversy among many body image activists.  The latter are saying the dancers project a negative body image, causing many people to feel badly about their shape.  Say what?  It takes years and […]

Kenzo x H&M Launches Next Week…

and I absolutely HATE it.  I really don’t understand why they even bothered with the collaboration.  Sure, I haven’t actually purchased anything from any of H&M’s collabs since, oh, I don’t know, Marni, and haven’t “loved” an entire collection since Lanvin (actually, I think that was the only collection I was absolutely IN LOVE with.  […]

Yorkville’s NEW Sephora a Disappointment

The Sephora in Toronto’s Bloor/Yorkville neighbourhood recently moved to a new, bigger location a block or so east.  I have to admit that I was excited about the move – a bigger spot means more room for products, right?  After all, I’m pretty much a Sephora addict – I’ve been a VIBRouge for at least […]

Notes on Nordstrom Eaton Centre: Likes and Dislikes

I went back to Nordstrom at the Toronto Eaton Centre this past weekend (so I can get the security tags taken off) and checked out the store in a bit more detail.  All in all, it’s a great place to shop – a happy medium between a The Bay (well, a more “typical” store, anyway […]

Nordstrom Eaton Centre Pre-Open Gala

Nordstrom held a pre-opening gala at their Eaton Centre store on Wednesday featuring shopping, fashion shows as well as delicious bites.  Proceeds, which totalled over $270,000, are going to various organizations including the Hospital for Sick Children, Covenant House and Women’s College Hospital. A (small) crowd shot Shot from the fashion show featuring interesting headgear […]

The Death of the Skinny Jean Has Been Greatly Exaggerated

People have been predicting the death of the skinny jean for years.  In fact, they say that the fall season is most definitely the end.  After all, New York fashion editors have been photographed wearing anywhere from flares to boot cut to, well, anything that isn’t skinny (no, “distressed” doesn’t really count, since they can […]

Simone Biles as a Petite Spokesmodel?

As soon as I heard that Olympic gymnast, Simone Biles was only 4’9″, an idea popped into my head.  Simone as a model for petite lines of clothing.  True petite models – that is, a model who is 5’4″ or shorter – are almost NEVER used.  The petite section of ANY clothing brand, features the […]
