"We're all pretty bizarre... some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all." - The Breakfast Club

Hi Friends,
  • This is the type of outfit I wear when I'm dragged out of bed at 9 a.m. on a Sunday to go to the St. Lawrence Market, a food and antique market in Toronto. We perused the stalls for vintage books, cameras, and jewellery but didn't leave with anything except some wine from the LCBO across the street.
  • I've been wearing either leather pants, leather leggings, or vinyl pants every day this week.
  • My mother was in Haiti for a day this week, I'm so eager to hear about her experience when she returns to Toronto on Friday. Emergency relief is so, so needed right now, please visit Doctors Without Borders to learn more and see how you can help.
  • I'm heading to New York City in a few weeks, so any shopping and eating suggestions are so so so appreciated! I haven't been in about 3 years, so please let me know of any great boutiques, coffee shops, vintage stores, and delicious dinner spots!


Zara Men's hat, Gap sweater, Vintage t-shirt, H&M pants, Jimmy Choo for H&M shoes

  8. Dear Lord... I would've had an orgasm at that vintage clothing rack. The texture/pattern mix is thrilling to look at, no less browse I'm sure.

  10. If you want a really awesome lunch check out Ippudo (think Japanese Brasserie) in the East Village. The original is in Tokyo and they have the best noodles I've ever had. It's filling, flavorful, and great for a cold day like it has been here in NY. I recommend the Akamaru Modern bowl, edamame with yuzu salt, and their samurai sake cocktail! The interior is gorgeous too.

    Also the Topshop store in Soho is amazing, definitely do it!

  15. Well done snapping up the Choos!

    In NY, if you have time, wander around the southern streets of SoHo - there are always loads of gems of boutiques, galleries and pop-up stores to be found that are surprisingly cheaper.

  57. Just walking around Greenwich Village was great, and if something interesting is being performed, (last time I saw Our Town) check out the Barrow Street Theatre. But plan something for later for later on in the night, because its not THE most happening night spot.
