Holiday Hangovers
So, the holidays are over and thank god! No more rushing to the mall or the grocery store for last minute tasks and no more Christmas spirit of thinking of others. Most importantly, no more endless holiday food of turkey, pastries, chocolates…and carbs!  I love my family and friends but Christmas giving time is over! It’s time to think about you.  Tis’ the season when we’re all inclined to think that it’s time to make changes in our lives, for the new year. We’re all wanting to eat better, exercise, quit smoking, etc… Around this time, we’re all inclined to feel like we need to make some changes in our lives, starting with a better diet and exercising more. But no matter how quickly you hit that treadmill, that feeling of bloatedness may still not go away. So, I’m here to help. There are 2 types of resolution makers: those who are doers and those who are talkers…and I am both. I’ll eventually do, but since I am a procrastinator and shamefully poor at time management, I sometimes am a talker. For the latter, a talker, I have a solution. You can use fashion to cover the lil pooch and […]
Shoes cure the Blues
  11/29/11 I don’t know about you but around this time of the year, I feel the blues. I know. I know. I should be in the Christmas spirit, it’s the all about the giving, blah blah blah but I can’t. I can’t stand being surrounded by the capitalism of it all. Call me a scrooge, then. Bah humbug. Let’s just get this show over with. However, the only thing that gets me through the season, besides spiked eggnog is looking at all the pretty, festive footwear. I’m talkin about the party pumps, the booties all a little more embellished for those Christmas parties! Let me show you some of my faves and top styles this season that are sure to cure any blues and liven up the party!  
Love Compatibility? How about Style Compatibility?
Valentine's Day, Shmalentine's Day! Show love everyday! Honestly, as much as I say this day is for suckers, and just another day for capitalism to feed on the masses that fall prey to the commercialism of it all
Cha Cha Party
11/30/08 Last Thursday, I attended one of my favorite boutiques in the city’s customer appreciation party and even though I didn’t stay as long as I wanted, I still experienced the warm energy that I associate with Cha Cha palace. Every time I enter the 3 storey house, I can’t help but feel like I’m almost walking into my best friend’s house and then her, letting me raid her closet and Thursday was no exception. The staff, headed by the lovely Sandi Johnson were there to make us feel welcome and to show us the latest styles that they had to offer. The store was definitely buzzing that night as they even gave out surprise discounts. There was plenty of wine, champagne and SUSHI! But even on a regular day, the staff at Cha Cha are  quite warm and friendly. And this energy only adds and reflects the pieces that Cha Cha carries. On the first floor are the footwear, handbags, and jewellry, where you will see lines from Fly London, Lug and  Satya. The second floor is where I spent most of my time, and carries clothing lines such as OHM, Comfy, Metallicus, Free People, Beatrice Halloway just to […]
Give me Attitude!
Nov. 24/2008 This past weekend was pretty uneventful, except for the great store find. I was taking a stroll, more like a speed walk in Osborne village, when I happened to look up and beyond Kustom Kulture and Noir and found a modest little boutique called Attitude boutique. I climbed up the stairs, making sure I wouldn’t slip and saw a bright, clean store. Heather, the owner and I chatted for awhile and this is what I found out. The boutique catered to (among others) the Rockabilly chicks of the city. Rockabilly, I just learned is a style that is inspired by the 50’s pin up girl but with more edge, sexiness and of course, more chic. Think lots of color and retro print on tight fitted or A-lined skirts on the dresses. I’ve seen this style on ladies in other places such as Vancouver and evidently, it’s a huge look in the city. Then again, someone did tell me during the summer that the 50’s was back and I have been seeing alot of men with the “Grease” hairdo. It’s cool, although, I think I prefer the ladies’ styles better. On the other side of the style spectrum was […]

Hollywood Holiday Dresses
One thing that distinguishes holiday evening wear from other types of evening wear is the combination of color and sheen or glitter to them. Kind of like Christmas ornaments.
