I cant seem to fall asleep. (I knew picking up that coffee was a bad idea.)
I'm going to make most of my time and share some photo's, not my own but random ones I love. More specifically I wanted to note how much I enjoy this destroyed piano key board. It reminds me of summer back in Winnipeg when my cousins and I would venture off to different neighborhoods to find short cuts to get home and the terrible graffiti that my area had to offer, the suburbs. I miss my cousins, they're the most amazing company at anytime of the day. The visit in April is much anticipated.
With the weather warming up, I've been avoiding the streetcars and walking as much as my feet can tolerate it. There's a bridge near my place that I always cross and I've been thinking a lot about its structure and the weight that it holds on a daily basis. That made me think of the quality and durability of RTW clothing, which makes me think back to buying quality over quantity. I'm still looking to invest in quality pieces that I can get a lot of wear out of. For now, I'm staying away from the evil one-wear pieces that I always gravitate towards. I'm really committing this time.

Fashion week in Toronto is very much alive and there's so much talent here. The venue is once again at the Heritage Center and although I miss the large white tents at Nathan Phillips, this new venue is a fresh change.
With Greta, Mark Fast, Pink Tartan and Joe Fresh, unveiling their collection earlier this week, I can't help but dream of Fall/Winter wear and skipping summer all together. I'll be making my way to Lucian Matis f/w 2011 "Chaos" collection tonight and I'm excited to see what he shows tonight, two seasons ago I was obsessing over the draping and head gear. I'm was all in! Definitely excited to see the crowd and some familiar faces tonight! LGFW, you never disappoint.

It was literally elbow-to-elbow at Briscola for Dress to Kill Magazines Spring Issue Launch party. The magazine, the people and the atmosphere served for a beautiful night to party the night away. The music was provided by Vaneska and drinks care of Peroni. Bloggers were present and models lead the pack with fresh faces with easy dressing, hair pulled back or lose waves. Bloggers were quick to snap the fashion conscious, including myself. ha. Although it was a quick lived moment, I would do it again.

Back and hoping to do a little more than 2 posts a year. (ha) Happy New Year! What was 2010 like after July last year you ask? I pretty much got a promotion and lost my weekend life. Within half a year I transferred from one city to another for work, I moved closer downtown, I went home to Winnipeg around Halloween, although it was short lived. And here I am now, hoping to reconnect with my love and obsession with fashion blogs, street style photos and fashion news. So in terms of new years resolutions, my major resolution has been budgeting accordingly to travel more, see more and just simply to enjoy life.
