One Little Closet, So Many Ways!: Better late than never!

Alrighty, fashionista(o)s! This is the last day of One Little Closet, So Many Ways!

I must say that it was a lot of fun to shop my own closet instead of buying more things that I really
don't need. My experiment showed me that with a little creativity one wardrobe can go a long way.
Instead of looking in your own wardrobe and thinking, "I have nothing to wear!" or "I need another
black pencil skirt!" take off those rose coloured glasses and have a second look because you will be
surprised with what you come up with.



Enjoy!

A Day in the Life: I Had a Fashion Dream Part Six!

Spring has sprung! I am happy to announce that I have achieved my dream internship in New York City! I am very excited and cannot wait to begin!

Before time comes to make the final move there are a few final touches that need to be made:

1) In order to be in the United States for a certain period of time, I must have a VISA to ensure that I legally am able to work for the duration of my internship. Upon hearing this information, I immediately approached a company called SWAP that assists with individuals who are in my situation. For those of you that are interested in obtaining an internship abroad, contact this company because it is a straightforward and helpful way to obtain work VISAs abroad.

With one thing checked of my list for my NYC Dream Internship, there are few more things that need to be done.

Stay tuned!

Photo of the Day: Red, White and Striped!

Ever since I was five years old and saw The Little Mermaid, I have always loved red hair. It's natural uniqueness is so striking, especially when combined with classic black and white. This photo of Ann Margaret shows that there is nothing cuter than a short lil' striped shirtdress and pigtails to boot!

Enjoy!

Betsey Johnson Heads to the T.O.: LG Fashion Week Wrap Party

Now that Toronto's LG Fashion Week is coming to a close, what better way to celebrate a week of fashion shows, schmoozing and planning your fall 2010 wardrobe?

Tonight head to the Liberty Grand, as fast as your stilettos will allow, to witness a guaranteed fun, colourful and whimsical fashion show by none other than, Betsey Johnson. The former Mademoiselle intern and Andy Warhol buddy will be presenting her (what seems to be) annual fashion show in participation with LG Fashion Week.

Accompanying her show will be DJ sets by Blondish, BP Fallon and British-It model Agyness Deyn! (Who I have a sneaking suspicion will be making an appearance on MTV Canada's The After Show very soon.)

The show begins at 9pm and is located at 25 British Columbia Road near the Exhibition Place. If you would like to purchase tickets click here.

Enjoy and I assure you that this is no April Fools Day joke!
