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.

Diamond shoulder bag by ARZA DESIGN
I love fashion that has futuristic touch. This bag totally plays on those aspects. It’s gorgeous and unlike anything I’ve seen before. The fabric detailing is very cute also. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like these bags are available in Canada yet.
An Anticon Hoodie
I saw these hoodies on The Coolhunter and Coolhunting. I love it so. I think I’ll definitely be ordering one of these things when they become available. I think a post is relevant when the hoodies go on sale, so keep reading.
PLEAT Wellington Boots.
I have to admit I’m beginning to come around to the welly. I have a lot of shoes that I just don’t like to wear in rainy and slushy weather. I noticed these beautiful things on The Cool Hunter. Too bad they are an art exhibit and not available for sale, if they were I would have to buy them. Rachael Sleight, the artist, has some other very cool looking clothes/art on her site.
I’ve come across some very cool handbags in the last few days.
Missoni Velvet Satchel
This bag is beautiful. I love everything about this bag. I love the colour scheme and pattern; the unusual shape and the hardware used for the clasp. This luxurious bag is made of black leather and velvet.
Oscar de la Renta Embellished Suede Hobo
This beauty is made of chocolate suede and has golden hardware. My favourite part of this bag is the engraved coins placed all over the body of the bag. It’s also big and slouchy, I love that.
Carlos Falchi Nubuck Tall Hobo
Moss green nubuck with braided leather strap and top flap.
Be & D Crawford Cruise Bag
Here’s another slouchy hobo bag in cognac. I love the riveting on the leather shoulder strap. This bag comes in other colours like Chocolate, Oz Emerald/Lime, Plum/Cognac (next favorite colour) and Washed Apple Green Python.
I’m a sucker for robots and all that kind of geekery. I discovered this website via web zen, that allows you to create your own cyborgname. Best of all you can get a cool looking t-shirt made and some icons for your website. I created a couple for my myself.
Get Your Cyborg Name
Get Your Cyborg Name
I prefer the “geekigirl” acronym, it sounds better than the “anita” acronyn. A glorified help desk droid, come on now.
T-shirts from Threadless
Threadless makes the coolest t-shirts. Some of my current wants are:
The Family Portrait had to be rescheduled
Water, just Water
Threadless looks to the public to submit designs. The Threadless Community votes for the T-shirts that will be printed and put up for sale.

While searching for a picture of my wonderful Luna’s, I stumbled across a Canadian shoe retailer out of Alberta. Gravity Pope is amazing! Their Diesel collection alone makes me drool. I have to admit Miss Sixty makes some great looking shoes. I had no idea, I hate their clothes but love their shoes, let’s check some out.
Natasha – I would feel like seeing the Wizard in these shoes
Sunset – beautiful short boot with a low heel. Low heels rock!
Buffalo – flat boot goodness
Gravity Pope has reasonable shipping prices within Canada. I think I can see myself ordering from them in the near future. Other brands they carry include Adidas, Fly London, Camper, Keen, Puma, Fluevog, Gravis, Kenneth Cole, Kenzo, Tsubo, Vans, Marc Jacobs, Pucci, CYDWOQ and more.

Purseket – Organize your handbag
A Purseket is an organizer for your handbag. I carry a lot of things in my handbags. It’s always a bitch when it comes to find things like keys, wallet, lip balm…
This handy insert however gives more pockets to put all your gear in. This is especially good in the “digital era”, as I often find myself carrying my digital camera, iPod, cell phone and sometimes my Clie.
The only thing I don’t like about the Purseket is the colour options. However, I do like the cranberry.

I was visiting Trent today and saw that he was an LV bag. So I decided to try this test out. Apparently I am Dooney&Burke bag. You can take the test here if you really want to.
I was kind of disappointed with this test, mostly because I had never heard of Dooney & Bourke. So I looked it up on the internet only to find out that the spelling that these people from zenhex.com use is wrong. It’s Dooney & Bourke, thank god for google. Anyways I decided to check out their website to find out if I truly am a Dooney & Bourke girl.
Signature Giant Sac
There is nothing like a giant bag to carry all your crap. I’m not quite sure what colour I would like, but I’m leaning towards the Sand/Red combo. The Giant Sac not big enough? Well they have the extra large version too!
This bag is really cute. I would love it in the Marine as pictured or in green. Oh hell, the orange would be fantastic also.
Domed Zip Satchel
I love the shape of this bag and of course tons of colours to choose from. I really, really like this yellow one.
Medium Bucket Bag
One in camel please!
Suede Large Ring Hobo
I love the way these large hobo bags look hanging under an arm. I also love big bags because I always end up carrying a lot of stuff. Any bag you can carry your lunch in is a good thing.
Wide Crescent with Gusset
Beautiful in brown.
And finally the Medium O-Ring Slouch Bag. I can’t snag a picture of this bag, but the website has an appropriate use of flash for the description of the bag. You can zoom in on the bag’s details to get a better look. Beautiful bag too, I like it in orange.
Well, I guess this does make me a Dooney & Bourke girl!
Deluxe iBall Ball Chair w/ Speakers
This would be perfect for chilling out at home. With the built in speakers you can be rocking your pod in this cool ass chair.
I also like the bubble chair. The colour selection is incredible. Hmmmmm, Lime Green 015. That would be nice.
Seems a lot of items from this inmod.com site are really freakin’ nice, check it out!

Club Coupe 911 Limited Edition
God, look at that car, isn’t it freakin’ beautiful
I love these cars. I remember in high school having pictures of Porsches all over my locker and books. This beauty is a limited edition made especially for Porsche Club of America’s 50th anniversary. I’ve always battled with what colour my Porsche would be, but after seeing this one, I now know… Baby Blue. I’m a big fan of the targa, check out some beautiful pictures here.
That’s me with some loaned Prada Shades. This was taken at my birthday celebration on Friday. You can see the rest of the shots here. These sunglasses are very nice. A friend let me try them on and then complimented me on how they looked. I have to agree; unfortunately these sunglasses cost about 300 bucks. Not a very good investment for someone who loses sunglasses all the time, hence why I buy cheap.
Keen Shoes – Boulder
These shoes would be so good for camping. There are some places in the city that sell them. Hopefully they’ll have the colour I want.
A Visual Thesaurus
Okay, I’m not much of a writer, but I do think this Visual Thesaurus is pretty freaking cool. You can try it out on the site, give it a shot
This is a sweet bag with some brassknuckles to boot.
Another lamb burger from the Seldom Seen/Seldom Heard farm.
So I finally went to the Dufferin Grove Farmer’s market. It was small, but had a lot of good fresh organic veggies and lots of organic meat. I got some of the first ontario strawberries too, can’t wait to eat those. Here are a couple pictures from the market.
I was about to leave when I stumbled across the lamb burger stand. I ordered one up because I was curious. It was fucking fantastic.
So, I want a half of lamb from Seldom Seen/Seldom Heard farm. And while I’m at it, I want a rack of lamb prepared for me (I don’t want to do anything except eat) using this recipe and with mint jelly on the side. I’ll just have to make room for the other parts in my freezer.

An Endless pool
I’d probably need a house first to own an endless pool, but they are very sweet. I don’t like public pools that much and I’ve never been very good at making those turns at the walls. This would be perfect for fitting more exercise into the day.
UFO Stovetop Espresso Maker
Bruno Bardazzi’s polished stainless steel machine brews two perfect cups simultaneously atop the stove. Includes a pair of ceramic cups and saucers. Exclusive to SFMOMA. $70.00US.
The funny thing is, I’m going to have this little wonder in my hot little hands next week. WOOT!!
I want a new purple iSkin for my iPod. The one I have now is broken and needs replacing. I hear from the local computer shop that iSkin have been pretty bad at sending out stock so there were no new 3G skins to be bought. Boo iSkin boo.

E2c Sound Isolating Earphones
I’m going to give up on my sony pieces of shit, and get some real headphones, the Shure E2c are it. It is the cheapest version in the line but at $109CDN they are still pretty pricey.
