This past weekend I was invited to Hannah Melville of Wonderlust last pool party in Oakville. She is moving back home to Vancouver with her husband Jordan. It was an amazing time and I had a blast. Wendy from House of Spy, me and Hannah We were lucky enough to be entertained by DJ Jelo and DeadMaus, some of Toronto’s hottest DJs. Jelo is known world wide too. It was pretty awesome to have him spinning at such an intimate venue. It was like South Beach! Thanks to Danielle for taking what is now my favourite picture of myself. The suit, by Vix Swimwear is one of my I wants from wayback.
I don’t like gold that much, I’m a silver person. I find it a bit tacky. Luxist has now shown me the ultimate tacky shoe. The design is simple and I have to wonder how sturdy they are. Gold isn’t a strong material. Up to 680 grams of pure gold was used for the shoes. via Luxist images: http://fisherwy.blogspot.com

Givenchy RTW Fall Winter 2007 – 2008 Video
Balenciaga RTW Spring Summer 2007 Video I posted this previously, but it was to a bad youtube video. I’m hosting a much better version now. Watch and see how the C3PO leggings should be worn.

I attended a Fall 2008-2009 trend forecasting seminar with the Toronto Fashion Incubator. It’s a membership perk as this seminar is not open to the public. I also have access to the Womenswear trendbook at the TFI office. These books are amazing and extremely pricey. I’m loving the ideas for Fall 2008. I took a whole ton of notes and I have to compile them. The seminar was given by Natalie Gauthier from the company Promostyl, International Trend Research and Design Agency.
These Via Spiga shoes remind me of the Dries Van Noten Fall 2007 pair I was drooling over in February. Dries Van Noten Fall 2007 Via Spiga
The Prada production movies are fascinating. Get a glimpse of how your favourite items are put together. This is one of my favourite videos, the ready to wear storage room. It contains all the fabric used in the collections. The room is over 5000 square feet. video: prada.com
I’ve got Lanvin on the brain after seeing those ads. Enjoy the fall collection.
Spectator Shoes by Via Spiga I’ve been dying for a pair of Spectator Shoes. Necessary items to perfect my menswear inspired looks. I purchased this pair from Winners for $40. They were sufficiently granny-looking enough for my needs. It seems this company’s shoes retails for much more than that.
I’ve featured Bamboo Closet on the blog before. I have a discount to their shop for you, my readers. We’re delighted to offer a special 15% off coupon to your readers valid for the whole summer (ends August 30, 2007)! Visitors to your site can simply enter the following code at the shopping cart checkout to avail of the summer discount: SUMMER07 I love this clutch. It would solve my silver handbag issue; I don’t have one to match my shoes. 🙂
That is what FASHION Magazine is asking your to vote for. What are your predictions? I want Rebecca to win, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t. I can see Tia winning it. Sinead is too boring. Tara doesn’t present herself well outside of a photoshoot, so I hope they don’t pick her. That’s really her only problem. Did anyone see the Cori video on The Globe and Mail’s site. She complains about people bashing her on the Internet. You were in a reality television show, did you forget that fact. Be happy they are even taking about you good or bad, it means you made an impression. image: cntm.ca
I’ve talked about my love for the Haramaki on I want – I got. I was happy that Alex from Yogagurl dropped me a note to let me know about their belly warmers. They are unfortunately only available in black. What I love about the japanese version is the colours and prints. However, if you aren’t into crazy prints and colours this would be a good purchase. Yogagurl is based out of Toronto, Ontario. images: yogagurl.com, www.1101.com
Balenciaga Fall 2007 – 2008 Collection Video – no sound unfortunately I thought the collection was a little all over the place. However, the fashion elite loved it. The clothes do look better on the video than in print. video: frillr.com
Thank god Cori is gone. She is weak and cries on a dime. You could not handle the fashion industry they are so much crueler than anyone you’ll meet in our fair T.O. I’m sure your shot at a real modeling career will be just as good as the rest of the other booted off top models. I have to feel for Rebecca, I know what it’s like to deal with drunkards. She looked hot this episode. I love that girl. I have to admit Tia rocked a great photo. So I’ll be looking out for my friend MJ in the next episode. He was part of the audience for the final challenge.
It’s called the C-String. Ugh. I love my thongs, but I don’t know if I could get into this. Watch this video. A model wears one and you can tell it’s not comfortable and she keeps adjusting it. They are toting the C-String as a great thing to wear at the beach. Sigh, cellulite, stretch marks and C-Strings; what wonderful beach viewing. Readers, would you wear this as underwear? How about a swimsuit bottom? If I got a sample (hint, hint) I would review it and let you know how it goes. I wouldn’t wear it as swimwear but it looks promising if the back butt thing doesn’t stick out. via Buzzfeed

I visited the new Coach store with a co-worker last week. That store offends all my sensibilities. I was bombarded with the horrible CC monogram those horrible patchwork bags were all over the place. I can’t remember the last time I saw so many fugly bags in one place. Actually, I don’t think I’ve every seen so many fugly bags in one place. The store is accessories only, no clothing. I didn’t see any shoes, but I could be wrong. Look at this hideous thing, who finds this appealing. I want to know. They did have the only thing I could find on the website that I liked. images: coach.com
I hated that episode. Somebody needed to go home. There are only 2 episodes left, why do we need 5 girls. It was funny to see some familiar faces on the go-sees like Anne Hung, who has a shop on Queen Street and Damzels’ girls. I hung out with Rory for the first time on Friday following the episode, it was a little surreal. She’s a ton of fun though. I noticed this picture in the FASHION Magazine newsletter. Is it predicting the winner for us? image fashionmagazine.com
It’s a monogrammed LV bag I can get into. This Louis Vuitton Icone bag is designed by Zaha Hadid. LVMH commissioned the bag for an exhibition. In the spirit of Marc Jacobs, who has constantly reinvented the House icons with flair and genius, Louis Vuitton has invited nine exceptional creative talentsâ€”artists, architects and designersâ€”to celebrate nine iconic bags in an exhibition that will run from September 15 to December 31, 2006 at the “Espace Louis Vuitton”. The Louis Vuitton Icone bag is made of moulded plastic and comes with its own stand and two stools. LVMH press release image: zahahadidblog.com
It’s funny to watch the Chanel Haute Couture Fall Winter 2007 – 2008 show go down in the pouring rain. Pictures from the show. video via frillr.com
I posted about the Jil Sander Fall 2007 Accessories while back. The shoes were so amazing. Diane, from A Shaded View on Fashion has posted a couple pics of the boots in real life. They are even more amazing. image: A Shaded View of Fashion
