Toronto was just a lot of eating and hanging out, and snow. It wasn't that cold just some fierce wind and lots of snow, the combination of which would send icy snowflakes flying directly into my eyeballs.
Halifax is really cute and I couldn't have asked for better weather. Everything is pretty close together lots of walking. Gramamamers, Lael and I went to Value Village in Dartmoth today. One of the best VV trips I have ever made!!!! Shoes galore, the best find were the size 5 boys Nike's Graham found for me (pictured above), this really rad gold belt for Lael and a bandana/scarf thing with gold medallions for Gramers (pictured to come).

Did anyone else notice the similarities between this month's Vogue shoot photographed by David Sims "Glamorama", edited by Grace Coddington and November 2006's "Get Happy"? Aside from the coco rocha shot at the end, well let's just say Im happy at natalia and mario could bring some fresh goods.

I'm anti-Valentine's day as a rule (Yeah, I know that makes me a bitter, unromantic cynic)but today I find it difficult to keep such a stance. Not only did I wake up to a Happy Valentine's Day msg on my phone but when I got into work I had a(very unexpected) card and lots of chocolate and candy from my co-workers, now if that doesn't make a grinch's heart grow a few times larger than I dont know what will.
Did you know that Chaucer is recognized as the first person to associate Feb 14th, St Valentine's feast day, with romantic love? Read all about such associations at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Valentine

I would like to preface this entry by saying that I have been really lethargic and unmotivated in keeping up with all the fall collections. The last two seasons have been really underwhelming for me. Sure my style.com lookbook is packed with stuff, but I haven't seen anything to get me really excited and bubbling over with energy and ideas. In other words No Real POPWHOABAMMFLASH!
The award for most excessive and (sometimes hideous) use of fur at the NYC fashion week:
Oscar de la Renta
I have never been one to be all animal rights and up in people's faces about eating KFC or wearing fur/leather or any of that shit but come on! One in every 4 outfits that he sent down the runway had fur incorporated into the look.
It was as if he had his minions go into some wildlife preserve with a right to shoot, kill, and skin anything that was fury and moved.
Does a little shrug like the one above really compliment the dress that well? I didn't think so.
One of the examples of using fur beautifully.
