Rewind: It’s the 90s

It seems that the 1990s are everywhere right now. What’s old is new again and all that. The last concert of the summer, I took it to another level when I attended the Toronto date of Aqua, Prozzak and Whigfield’s Rewind Tour at Echo Beach.   It was a Saturday night so I now have…

Hello, Yellow!

It was a gloomy partly cloudy day in Toronto … and surprisingly chilly for a July day. With an afternoon full of meetings in the downtown core (yuck), my mood needed some lifting.  So I decided that my outfit needed to be bright, loud and fresh. Here’s what I came up with: I’ve been searching…

How to Wear Sequins & Shine

Sequins was a big trend this winter….and it seems to be carrying into spring.  But knowing HOW to wear sequins is a bit tricky.  So I thought I’d dedicate this post to just that! I personally own 5 sequins/shiny items: Copper/silver  chain purse (Aldo)    Black pumps (Guess) Copper/Gold tank-top (INC, Hudson Bay Co.) Gold…

Doll Factory by Damzels

This past Christmas, I was fortunate enough to have gotten invited to a number of Holiday Happenings around the city.  One  of which I attended was A Merry Scotch-mas – the launch party for Doll Factory by Damzels,  a rock ‘n’ roll retail shop on Roncesvalles. Me and a few Toronto Vintage Society Sistas braved the cold for…

Shades of Grey for Spring

I’m really digging shades of grey that seem to be everywhere this winter.  Like this cutie-pie illusion of lace dress that I’m yet to wear – picked it up during Boxing Week at Toronto’s Eaton Center.  It’s light weight with a bit of crinoline at the hem just at the knees, that gives the skirt a bit…

Cherry Bomb

I bought this Cherry Bomb dress last year as my Happy-Birthday splurge.  It is a sexy ultra form-fitting pin-up/vintage/ultimate bombshell dress…and oh so comfortable. This dress has a wrap twist in the bust area, enhancing ‘the girls’ and cap sleeves that look great on all arms.  It even has helpful gathers in the front skirt to help hide…
