A November to Remember

Sorry for the long absence friends and readers 🙂 But November has been a busy, busy month filled with fun. Let me catch you up with What I Did and What I Wore for various happenings this past month… THE VINTAGE SPECTACULAR What do you call a night where the amazing GTA Swing Band pair…

Blast From The Past Vintage Prom

On November 28th, Rosie The Rebel – a retailer of retro and alternative clothing – hosted a fantastically themed party at The Great Hall, in Toronto: Blast From the Past Vintage Prom: For Those Born in the Wrong Era  Think back to the prom scenes in classic movies like “Back To The Future” and “Grease”…

Oktoberfest!

For years now I’ve been trying to round-up the troops to enjoy Oktoberfest in the K-Dub (Kitchener, Waterloo) – the 2nd largest Oktoberfest celebration next to Munich, Germany!  Sadly, I’ve failed every year. 😦 This year however, a few fun friends and I were determined to dig out our lederhosen and dirndls for Toronto’s 3rd…

Electro Swing Toronto’s Vintage Hollywood

We were at it again folks!

DJ Medicineman (founder of Electro Swing in Toronto) often recruits…

Custom Suiting – Thoughts?

Most of what I like to do on Petite Plus, Meow! is to write posts featuring “what I did” and “what I wore“.  Occasionally I’ve spoken about other topics, one in particular is how disappointing it is to see a handsome & eligible bachelor who’s wearing crumbled pants and a hoodie.  Even more rare, apparently…

Choir! Choir! Choir!

I love to sing.  I’m an off-key karaoke fiend, and often have broken into song on the streets whilst listening to my iPod.  I’m not particularly good at it … except when I’m singing “Drunk In Love” in my shower – then I sound EXACTLY like Queen B 🙂 Singing  makes me happy.  And I’m…
