The lineup at the sale, I’m sure you’ve heard, was insane. Big and long and everlasting with people. Met up with AA hottie Joey Ng, aka Sass on team American Apparel who made sure me and my guestlist had a great time. THANK YOU! Wasn’t there long too long but snagged a few jems for sure. Woot!
By the way…McDonald’s at Spadina/Queen is closed for reno’s and LCBO at Spadina/King opens Friday!
So, this is quite exciting and big…the FIRST EVER American Apparel rummage sale in Toronto. Get ready to throw some elbows! Prices are up to 85% off! Absolutely everything is under $50 and prices start at $2. Honestly. Can you believe it?
It’s free admission and located at 590 King St. West [King & Portland]. It’s on all weekend and for exact times check the Facebook event page.
When you get back from the rummage sale with hands full of new gear, empty out your closet and throw your clothes up on shopmyclothes.com. They promote the recycling and reuse of clothes and accessories. I’m all for it.
This Toronto based company was started by a friend of mine and told me that 85% of used clothes go unrecycled! That means style is going in the garbage! AH! NO! Most of my really awesome clothes are second hand and I love clothing swaps. I’ve got a stack of photos and stuff to upload to the site this weekend. You’ll start seeing ads around the city and on the subway soon but we know you saw it here first.
I love this awesomely-cool-stylish-art-attack by blog friend Gloria writer of Urbanebloc.com.
Smoking is gross I know. But I love her. I like it. Not always but sometimes…in the evening, after dinner and wine. Not nice in the day time. They’re talking about snow on the news. Doesn’t bother me much. I dress for it.
Holiday decorations are going up around. Lead in toys is a big deal, more than ever and mostly from Asia. Twilight is taking over, I’ve never seen it but I’d kiss a Vampire. I loved Kate Moss & Jonny Depp. I still do.
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. The weekend, yesterday, today. What more could you ask for than Spring in November? Summer in December? Ah, a girl can dream can’t she? Yes, a girl can dream.
I absolutely love walking to work in the morning and home again at night. No more TTC, just me, an outfit and my cute little boots on the pavement. I really need to put some music on my ipod. I’ve been so wrapped up dreaming of iphone, I forgot about the little guy.
Couple things to let you know…
Just added a review to Chick Advisor, check it out. I’ll be at the National Ballet tomorrow night for wine tasting (thanks for the invite). You’re welcome to join me, there’s still tickets. I’ve been listening to some pretty rad tunes lately including the new album from Yacht (who I love) and Adriane Lake (her album).
I picked this little guy up on the weekend. Don’t you want it? I thought it represented me well. The store is Queen and Dovercourt and they’ve got a little sale on right now. I’ve started making some really snazzy jewels myself. All custom made and all one of a kind. I’ll post photos soon.
Two friends were in the Financial Post yesterday, check out Sarah from Sprouter and Mike from Scribble Live. They are both part of the awesomeness that made Toronto Twestival this year a huge success.
And so it began…the day of closet organizing. I photographed about 100 pieces and there’s many more to go. It’s a huge job. I had a garbage bag size pile of clothes to take to the swap and at the end of the day all the leftovers go to charity.
It was at Amy’s friend Daniella’s shop Chasse Gardée, Queen and Dovercourt. So many nice things in the shop. I spotted about 20 pairs of shoes I’d love to own. Smile for the cam-cam ladies!
People brought clothes throughout the day so the merch was always changing. I ended up going back later with Keri and donating more clothes. Oh it felt so good to give them away!
We all managed to find a few jems. There was lots of really nice stuff (vintage, designer).
Demin jacked I’ve now altered, vintage dress and brand-new-tags-on FCUK mini dress with pockets. Steal.
I am now the proud owner of a room where there are no clothes on the floor, EVERYTHING is clean and has a home. It’s been ages. I feel like my mind is free from clutter, finally! I’m thankful for my first job at the GAP in 1996, everything is perfect folded.
I’m totally inspired to host my very own swap with wine and cheese. Stay tuned. I reckon before the holidays (which are very quickly approaching).
It’s so beautiful outside today, like a second summer.
I’m going for a bike ride. Woot – Sunday Funday!
p.s. Taylor Swift was hilarious on SNL last night and I love her.
I woke up in a great mood. It’s good day I can feel it. Had a nice brekky at Roastery with Jeff, they have the best music. Soon as I got to the office I re-played I love the Nightlife on my Blip Station for my Twitter peeps to enjoy. It was perfect the perfect tune to dive into work with enthusiasm.
I’ve got two new penpals and am expecting mail. They’re both in the GTA so if you live far and wanna be my penpal, leave a comment and we’ll chat about it.
I’m also excited because some dear friends in the USA are sending me a camera in the mail!! Remember I broke mine? Lucky girl right here! Say goodbye to these Blackberry photos and hello to my pretty litte face nice and clear.
People went wild over this a photo I posted of my sis and I yesterday. Saying we’re Twins and stuff. She’s probably the cutest thing…ok she ties with me. haha You can follow her on Twitter. I’m trying to get her into it as much as me but it seems I have a passion like no other!
Reminder to enter the Harijuku Lovers Contest by emailing email@example.com to tell me something you love. It’s that easy. I’m gonna pick the winner live on 12seconds.tv October 30th.
It happens every year when the season change. You know what I mean, we all go through it. You wake up and wonder what to wear, what will it be like today? Outside? Inside at work? I think and say out loud “why don’t I wear a bikini under a parka so I’m prepared when it’s either freezing bloody cold or damn hot?” Ok…I exaggerate…
I remember this one job I kept a blanket at my desk all year round. I never knew if I was planning for heat or air conditioning, never mind the unpredictable outdoor weather. It’s a problem but not like a really serious one…
I love fashion and style and clothes but don’t talk about them that often. I’ve got a couple favorite blog spots that do cover fashion and they’re really good.
I like their style and they’re all so damn cute. They are:
