The Magnum Heir Entry

September 25th, 2011

Last month I was a finalist in the Magnum Heir contest for a huge prize. I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me! Even though I didn’t win, it was an exciting ride. I couldn’t say anything about the items in the video while the contest was on, but now that it’s over, I […]

Autumnal Equinox + Jill Stuart

September 23rd, 2011

Happy First Day of Fall! It’s been raining nonstop today, but I’m enjoying the peace and quiet to go through a few of the FW11 collections, lament my falling stocks (ha, ha), listen to the TEDxToronto conference livestream and start planning my Thanksgiving menu. To celebrate Friday, and the first day of fall, I thought […]

Batik Scarves

August 15th, 2011

Here’s hoping everyone had a good weekend! I’ve already read some of my friends’ in-party BBMs and seen a video from a trip to Canada’s Wonderland, so I know I’m not the only one who was up to some fun! I went to visit my parents this weekend for the first time in years. They […]

New Fashion Notables

August 4th, 2011

Having studied fashion and worked as a designer and product developer for a while, I know how hard people in the industry work at their craft, how many talented designers there are, and how difficult it is to start a business and build it into something profitable and recognizable. So, I’m always on the lookout […]

I can’t get enough of… Daphne Guinness

July 13th, 2011

This short film of the eccentric Guinness heir and fashion icon to many, shot by Brennan Stasiewicz, has been out for a month – but I’ve watched it a few times already. I adore fashion(able) short films, and Daphne’s Window is a permanent favourite. Daphne’s Window from Brennan Stasiewicz on Vimeo.

Easter Sunday Linkety-link: High Fashion Eggs

April 24th, 2011

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope you’re all busy gorging yourselves on food, spending quality time with those you love… and doing whatever else makes you happy. I’ve had a delicious brunch at Caplansky’s, and am home watching the federal debate while awaiting my parents and siblings from out of town to arrive. I didn’t have […]

Closet Raid: Scarves

April 11th, 2011

It’s 21 degrees C outside today; a wonderfully balmy April day. Over the past while, the temperature has been all over the place as the seasons battle it out for their respective turns. On a recent Sunday (not yesterday, but the one preceding), it was sunny and warm at noon, and was snowing by evening […]

April, as it appears to Anthropologie

April 5th, 2011

The April Anthropologie catalogue is out, and as usual, it’s full of beautiful images. Recent financial results for the Urban Outfitters group (of which Anthropologie is a part) have been disappointing, but the catalogues never cease to inspire. I consider Anthropologie one of the best-in-class for their print work and email marketing. The exquisitely cohesive […]

What goes up, What goes down, and a little extra fun for Friday

April 1st, 2011

Jump Up: Early this week, the Prada group, which also owns Miu Miu, posted a record $336 million in profits for 2010, up a whopping 150.4% from the previous year. They are clearly doing something right, and if this season’s creeper shoe, which sold out of stores by mid-March and now has an extensive waiting […]

Vincent Van Gogh, meet Felicity Brown

March 31st, 2011

Oops, I had completely forgotten. It’s Vincent Van Gogh‘s birthday! The quintessential starving artist, Van Gogh had a tough life – chronically plagued with mental and physical illness – but he was able to produce some absolutely incredible works of art. One of my personal favourites is The Starry Night, painted in 1889 during his […]
