It was unseasonably warm last week, so I took a little walk over to Crown Flora studio on Queen West last weekend. I “”””needed to buy some succulents””””” aka I really just wanted to take photos in front of their pink wall. (Still bought the succulents though.)

This jacket!!!!!! Tuesday Bassen made this illustration and sold it on society6 back in… 2012? 2013? Anyway, I had it hanging on the wall in my old apartment for years so when I had the chance to snag the ACTUAL JACKET from the illustration that she just started selling, I jumped on it. The best part is that it goes up to a 3x!!! Bless her soul for making a line of clothes that goes from XS-3X. I wish more retailers would do this. I’m sorry, but all I want is to be able to buy skinny person clothes… just in bigger sizes. Just because I’m fat doesn’t mean I want a shitty quality tshirt with ‘Live Love Laugh’ written on it or black leggings with a lace trim at the bottom (because black is ‘flattering’ and stretchy spandex leggings are the only thing fat people can fit into??? thanks). I want to be able to buy the chic, cool, minimalistic things they sell at Zara and H&M in my damn size. Plus size clothes are UGLY so it just makes me so appreciative when companies offer size ranges larger than a fucking Large.

Whoo! I didn’t even mean to go off on a rant like that. Just kinda flowed from my fingertips. Plus size fashion just makes me very, very angry (and frankly offended) sometimes. Anyway, I bought the jacket in a 2x and I love it. I can even zip it up over my boobs. It’s a miracle.

This final post covers the CABINET ÉPHÉMÈRE popup shop opening VIP party. Several Canadian designers from Quebec and Ontario came together to showcase their new collections (I actually bought something- will reveal in an upcoming post.) I once again brought along my friend Kendra and we tried on clothes, chatted, and drank approximately 17 glasses of champagne.

October Events- Part 2

10 12 16

Continuing on from my last post, I’ve gone to a couple of other events so far this month.

Breakfast with Sentaler

The lovely and beautiful ladies at Sentaler invited me to their showroom to view their FW16 collection (since it is now, officially, FW16), drink mimosas and eat some breakfast treats. Their coats are beautiful, go up to size XL (their cape/poncho coats fit much much bigger), and are made from 100% cruelty-free alpaca fur from the Peruvian Andes (the animal is sheared, not killed. It’s the softest material I’ve ever felt in my life).

Villa Azur popup

So, I got an invitation from this Miami-based restaurant popup that was happening During the Toronto International Film Festival. They were having an all-white party to kick off the whole week- fun! I made my friend Kendra tag along (she’s the whole reason I ever started fashion blogging and she’s amazin so check her out). It wasn’t reeeeeally a fashion event per se but we looked cute nonetheless.

October Events part 1

October was previously the month of Toronto Fashion Week, an event I’d been attending (and loving) for the past couple years- until it was cancelled this year. And also forever. I was super bummed out by this news considering it was always the highlight of my month to see the new (spring and therefore hopefully pastel-filled??!) collections from my favourite Canadian designers like Mikhael Kale and Hayley Elsaesser. HOWEVER, I was lucky enough to be invited to several events this month (so far, there’s more comin up!!). I’m splitting these recap posts into threeeee posts, since I have 67395 photos to share.

Nordstrom Opening Gala

Canada’s FIRST EVER NORDSTROM (why did it take so long?? dunno) opened at Yonge/Dundas Square at the beginning of the month, and I was able to attend the opening gala. It included a BUNCH of hors d’oeuvres (sign me up), a bunch of open bars with different alcohol varieties (including a BEER VENDING MACHINE, double sign me up), a fashion show with models wearing the latest and greatest from designers like Alexander Wang and Burberry, and three floors of live music, shopping, and VIP’s dressed to impress.

Eligible Magazine & Softlips Presents: Bachelor Party

Okay so, this one was less of a fashion event and more of a girls-peeing-their-pants event. But I still thought it was worth a mention since I got to hang out with Vinny, Jared and Robbie from The Bachelor/The Bachelorette/ Bachelor in Paradise. THERE WAS SO MUCH VAGINA IN THE ESTABLISHMENT.
