Here’s Oscar!

OSCARS 2014

After weeks of being a couch potato and committing wholeheartedly to watching a very long list of films – OSCAR NIGHT HAS ARRRRRRIVED! It’s always been a fun ritual of mine that I most likely take too seriously. As a young, blossoming cinephile I would stay up well past my bedtime to watch as the  shiny gold statues were doled out to glamorous celebrities that I probably didn’t recognize. Now, I carefully plan the categories I’m interested in, learn as much as I can about the films and their actors, and form my own *humble* opinions about who deserves the mighty Academy nod of approval.

The Killin’-It List

KYLIELook 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4 / Look 5 / Look 6

Confession: I am a total Kardashian Junkie. As a beloved ‘lady’ once said, SO WHAT? WHO CARES?! People love to hate on them, love to point out how they are just a manifestation of the troubled frame of mind our generation is in. I could care less. The show provides me with mindless entertainment in a world where my brain is constantly overwhelmed with external stressors, where the family’s candor cracks me up and honestly, makes me cry on the regular. So that’s my dirty little secret: I’m a Kardashian fan. Big. Frickin’. Whoop. Continue reading

Fin de Semaine Best In Show

GAGA

Weekend attire can go one of three ways:

  1. You’re in the mood to get all gussied up and perhaps paint the town red.
  2. You’re having a casual weekend, and a nice pair of jeans and cozy, chic sweater is all that you require to hit the flea and farmer’s markets.
  3. You’re taking full advantage of the end of the week to stay in, full on hermit style: same flannel, leggings, and cozy socks day after day.

Leave it to Lady Gaga to up the ante and sport this amazing look this weekend.

CLOSET

The blogosphere is ripe with infinite options to keep you entertained and distracted all day. There’s the good (The Man Repeller, The Rêve Head, The Click In Closet) and then there are the blogs that I’m sure are just fine, but not on my radar (How to Rewire Your Toaster, The Dog’s Breakfast, Pix of Wooden Stix)(Yes, I made these up). One of my very favourite blogs to peruse by far is The Coveteur. Continue reading

Mark Blinch for The Globe and Mail

There are some special nights  that will go down in history as one of the best of your life, where the stars align and the music is good, the people are good, and you are feeling like bliss. Last night was one such night. Continue reading

Style Icon: Leigh Lezark

Proof I’ve always been a dreamer: when I was in high school I somehow stumbled upon the The Misshapes website. I was totally obsessed and dreamed that I would one day make it there, to NYC, to party. It was (or at least it seemed to be) the absolute coolest ‘nightclub’ in the entire world. Every weekend they would throw a fête and take their amazing, signature Misshapes photos of each guest to post to their site (now compiled in a book). I was religious about checking the site after the weekend to scan through all the photos of the rad peeps and energetic atmosphere. They were polaroid-esque shots of stylish and interesting people/celebrities in front of a blank wall, or of the guest Dj (MADONNA!) or the wild dance floor. Lawd above, thinking back on it now I would have been in sheer bliss at one of these parties, tearing up the dance floor, and surely making a fool of myself, happy as a pig in mud. The parties were formed by a Dj collective consisting of Geordon Nicol, Greg Krelenstein, and one of my favourite style icons, Leigh Lezark. Continue reading
