A Boba Fett print by Dave White
Boba Fett

God I love Boba Fett! Remember here people, I may love fashion, but I’m a nerd at heart. Boba has always been my favourite Star Wars character. Even though George Lucas basically ruined the Boba Fett mysticque in Episode 1, I still love him. How much do I love Boba, enought to share my living room with a cardboard cutout. I’ve had this cutout for about 10 years now. Jesus, 10 years, πŸ˜€

Well I found this print on a site called Hypebeast, check it out!

Toronto online classifieds

Craigslist used to be the only choice for trying to sell stuff locally. Now there are two. Ebay has created Kijiji. Kijiji, which means “villageÒ€ in Swahili, is a classifieds-style website that offers a free, fun, and easy-to-use way for people in the same city to meet, share ideas, and trade goods and services. Kijiji is a start-up created by a small team of employees within eBay. Kijiji now has local sites in more than 180 cities in 18 countries. Kijiji is a place where Torontonians can come together to trade a wide variety of goods and services. It is a great place to find a new pet, tickets to tonight’s hockey game, a job, or an apartment. It is also ideal for community postings such as volunteer opportunities or dance classes. All postings are free and no registration is required. Posting on Kijiji is very easy and you don’t have to register. Anyone who has used Craigslist for posting will notice the difference. The only thing lacking right now for Kijiji is volume, but …

i want: Red Apple Finds

I got a friendly email the other day notifying me of a shopping website called Red Apple. I had already heard of Red Apple at this point and even visited their site briefly. This email was a friendly nudging to write a post. About Red Apple,

i want: Smythe Les Vests Coats

Many things by Smythe Les Vests I was reading Fashion Notes in Now Magazine and they mentioned Smythe because of their recent popularity. I decided to see what the fuss was about. They have some beautiful jackets (and a vest) that I have been salivating over. “Designer development We love a great Toronto fashion success story, and Christie Smythe ‘s and Andrea Lenczner ‘s tale of global blazer domination has just turned another fantastic page. Their Smythe line of just jackets has been a hit with hometown fashion folks and the Barney’s blonds set in New York City. This spring, London ladies hunting for smart oxford cloth waistcoats and shrunken double-breasted sailor jackets can pick up their collection at UK style mecca Harvey Nichols.“.(source)

Get out and Accessorize

There is a new British import in Canadian retail and it’s Accessorize. Open for about 2 weeks now I decided to take a quick look at their new Queen street store this morning. I was pretty impressed with the selection as it totally overwhelmed me when I walked in. It’s not a big store people, but it’s packed to the gills with product. I was also happy with the layout of the store. They organize items by colour combination, making it easy to find items that will work well together. They have a ton of handbags, scarfs, shawls, hats, earrings, and necklaces. Everything in the store is private label and you won’t find it anywhere else. The selection changes weekly so accessory nuts will always have something to look at. Accessorize is huge in Britain and Europe, and are doing well in Canada. I was told their expansion goal is 10 stores a year in Canada. So far the GTA, Vancouver and Ottawa are lucky enough to have stores. After some googling, I found out …

Oh Floria what a beautiful dress you have

I was browsing through the new Toronto Life today and saw Floria Sigismondi in the 24 hours with… column. I just love this outfit she is wearing. The article didn’t say who the designer was, boo urns to them. If anyone knows who this designer is please leave a comment. toronto, fashion, Floria Sigismondi

I’ve fallen in love again…

It’s strange how a small item can make you feel like a little kid again. That’s how I feel about the new Converse Chuck Taylors I bought recently. Chucks look soooo good on. I love them with a pair of jeans and a Threadless t. I purchased these from Get Outside – map it!!!. I tried a different colour combination, but I decided to go for the classic black and white version. They are a throwback to the first Chucks I ever had in Grade 7. Wearing these chucks for the first time reminded me of my family trip to DisneyWorld in Orlando where my brother and I were so happy with our new Chucks. We had the exact same pair. I also had a black and white hat to match my shoes. Sigh, memories…. shoes, fashion, converse, toronto
