InnerSPACE: Rise of the Fashion Blogger

If you were at WMCFW in Toronto this year you might have seen me with a camera entourage. Or you might have seen me doing an on camera interview backstage. The program InnerSPACE on the SPACE channel asked me take part in a segment about fashion bloggers along with Stefania Yarhi and Nathalie Atkinson. SPACE’s flagship show, InnerSPACE is a daily entertainment talk show that covers film, television, video games, technology, comic books, gadgets, and all things genre. Hosted by Ajay Fry, Cynthia Loyst and Teddy Wilson, InnerSPACE takes its audience behind the velvet rope by giving them VIP access…

Talking About My ‘Do in Worn Journal Issue 15

I’m in the current issue of Worn Journal. It’s been out since November but I’m only getting around to posting about it now. In June, I got an email from Serah-Marie asking if she could feature me in Worn’s hair issue. As you can imagine, I was a little perplexed at why I would be included. She explained that the piece would be feature on people with interesting hair styles. Accompanying the photos would be an interview with questions related to hair and identity. I said yes without question because it’s Worn Journal and it’s a great topic that my…

Finally, I’m a Street Style Star on Refinery29

I’m a street style star! Refinery29 had some photographer spies taking street style photos and I was snapped. It was very cool to be featured in the Oh, Canada! Toronto’s Most Stellar Street Style post. This is totally bucket list material. Neon makes people crazy. I wore this outfit to work. I wear some crazy things but this was brightest and loudest. Coworkers were commenting all over the place. Random strangers had nice things to say too. It was such a fun outfit to wear, I was smiling all day. Let’s breakdown the outfit shall we. Dress: Zara Shoes: Aldo…

Toronto’s Best Dressed – The Star

Derick Chetty of The Toronto Star named me one of Toronto’s Best Dressed for 2011. Yay! I wasn’t expecting this when Derick emailed me a month ago. This is my first best dressed listing and so far things have been positive. Coworkers got a kick out of it and I know my Mom loved it. I’ve done the smart thing and stayed away from all the comments on thestar.com. Really no point in reading the hateraid about something so insignificant in the whole scheme of things. Choosing the outfit was a nightmare. I’ll be honest about that. Read the article…

Um you’re on WWD

I was in meetings all morning and when I finally returned to my desk my twitter replies were blowing up. Something is up, I thought to myself, I haven’t even tweeted yet. Turns out WWD did a street style post for LG Fashion Week and I was snapped with my friend Caroline Shaheed. The title of this post was the best email subject line I received all day. It best represents the shock of finding out. Can you say freaking the fuck out! I’m stunned by this and doing a little happy dance. It’s silly but I have to admit…

I want – I got on Global TV News Hour 6pm, March 24, 2011

Check it out live if you can. I`ve heard they post it online afterwards so I`ll try to update this post with a link to that video. Cheers Anita UPDATE: Video is out

Josephson Opticians 75th – Behind the Scenes

You might have remembered that I was part of an ad campaign for the 75th anniversary of Josephson Opticians.  I have some behind the scenes photos to share. Josephson Opticians 75th Outfit Breakdown – Alain Mikli sunglasses (nope I didn’t get to keep them), Complex Geometries Dress, Camilla Skoovgaard heels.

Guest Bloggin at The Agenda. Yes the TVO one.

I’m amazed that The Agenda approached me to write about the Toronto Fashion Blogger scene but it happened. You can read it here Guestblog: Toronto’s fashion bloggers on The Fifth Column. It’s one of the most agonizing pieces I’ve written. I’m really hard on myself and I’m never happy. I still have a bunch of irrational fears over the piece that I think all stem from the fact that it’s on The Agenda’s blog. The Agenda is a super serious news entity to me. I’m incredibly surprised they even wanted to acknowledge us fashion bloggers. They did and the piece…

Happy 75th Josephson Opticians!

During the summer I  participated in an ad campaign for the 75th anniversary of Josephson Opticians. I said yes because I love this kind of thing and photoshoots are always lots of fun. So, I took a day off work in the summer and headed to Caitlin Cronenberg’s studio. I’ve waited patiently for the November 2010 issue of Toronto Life to come out and it’s finally here. I can show off this fun ad to everyone. This October marks the 75th anniversary of Josephson Opticians, a very special occasion for Dr. Josh Josephson, family, and friends. To commemorate the milestone…
