This was our 4th Annual Tiki Party … with surf bands, burlesque performances, rum tastings, limbo and colourful outfits galore … we threw one hell of a party!

What I Bought
There were a number of fabulous vendors on site … which means some shopping had to be done 🙂
Then I met Marylou of The Bonnit … and these bad boys followed me home. Perfectly compact rain bonnets with adorable patterns on them!
And they even fit with a giant hair flower affixed to head – bonus!!! 😉
They come 2-per-pack. And soon with colour printed patterns.
Right now she’s offering FREE shipping to all over Canada. Just sayin’ ladies 😉
What I Wore
I picked-up this floral halter-neck dress last year at one of those blowout sales Tatyana Boutique was having.
Kinda loving the lime green centers on blue flowers, all over an all black background. I plan on extending the wear of this dress into the Fall with a black cardi… since it’s been waiting to be worn out for an entire year!
How beautiful is the backdrop of our Photo Booth?
I can’t even imagine how much patience and delicate scissoring it must have taken to get each of these leaves perfect.
Totally worth it tho. Just. Beautiful! ❤
How I Got The Look: Dress and Purse, Tatyana Boutique, Giant hair flower, Fruits of Bali, Jelly shoes from my trip to Malaysia (click here to find out more)
Special Thanks to Joy Tan for snapping these pics of my outfit for me!

After picnicking … a few of us were ready to learn how to do The Stroll with Drea from Soda Pop Hop
Dirty Dancing Quote-a-long
The Bloor Cinema hosted a Quote-a-long movie screening of DIRTY DANCING.
Oh yes…. taking us back to the summer of 1963, via the summer of 1987. Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is resigned to spend her summer at a wholesome family resort in the Catskills, when she unwittingly discovers the wild dance parties the resort staff have after hours.
This quote-along screening was hosted by comedian Steph Tolev, in a karaoke-style where you were encouraged to yell back at the movie screen and boo Robbie-the-Jerk, woot Johnny-the-Dreamboat, and get up and dance like it’s the Time of Our Lives!!!!
Happy to report that EVERYONE knew exactly when to say, “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”
Toronto Vintage Society’s Tiki Lani Lanai
This was our 3rd Annual Tiki Party … and it was our best turnout ever!

Me among the crowned Tiki Queen of the evening…. and her wife. Aren’t they both just adorbz! My outfit: I found this floral aqua romper (yup, its a onesie friends) from Forever21+; Hair flower from Fruits of Bali; Sandals from Coach
O.K. Blue Jays!
I’m not a big sports fan – sitting through 9-innings of baseball on the hottest day ever and paying for ridiculously over priced food and booze, isn’t my first choice of spending a sunny afternoon.
Buuuuuuut the Toronto Blue Jays have been killing it this season! And in true bandwagon-fan fashion… I wanted to be apart of the hype!!!
So, we got ourselves nose-bleed tickets to a PACKED Skydome game!
Plus, look at these cutie-pie tees I found us!!! $17 from Winners bebe! Aren’t we the cutest!??!
Clearly our matchy-matchy look helped them WIN the game that day. You’re welcome fellas! 😉
Turns out for a non-sports-fan, I made it to a game last year too. Click here for that.
Let’s Go To The Ex!
I haven’t been to The Ex since I was a teen. A few dancing friends went down on a Monday night to cash in on the $6 after 5pm deal….. We tasted weird deep-fried foods … checked out livestock at the farm … rode some rides… lost money trying to win prizes…
AND got to dance the night away to BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY ….!!! We were “So Money” and we didn’t even know it 😉
