Something extremely cool happened to us at the blog last week. We got nominated for a Notable Award for Conscience Coupable, and as someone who has never been nominated let alone won anything, it feels really special. Though it may just be an external award, seeing that you guys care enough to vote for our little labour of love, makes me feel very seen, heard and most importantly understood, which is pretty awesome. All this thanks your support over these two short years!

So we didn’t go to Disney World. We spent a lovely week in Miami eating and relaxing, and I showed tons of restraint, ignoring Mickey’s incessant calls begging me to come visit. So needy that one…Back in Montreal now anticipating an eventful week. I’m dragging my husband to a Nicki Minaj concert which he’s kinda dreading. He’s totally team Swift. This will be followed by an even more eventful weekend as festival season has finally made its way to our part of the world for OSHEAGA! Dressing for this shit really makes my year. It’s the little things in life you know? Little things like crowns, crochet, and exposed high waisted panties…fuck I’m excited!
Don’t I look like, totally brainy in my lab coat?

Hello fwiends! I wish you all a very happy TGIF and a raging weekend. I have escaped the frozen land I call home, and am currently in paradise. Yes, after all the complaining I’ve been doing about my impending doom in our North fucking Pole, I have finally made it to the sandy beaches of Miami. This little #OOTD was taken last weekend before going out to dinner, while I was still braving the cold. Let me tell you, a cape at -25°C, ya…not warm enough. Nonetheless I soldiered on, protected my Karlito, and walked this Saint-Laurent inspired number, 6 whole steps from the car into our favourite restaurant, Le Bemner. I know right..so brave. Now it’s time to enjoy this little vaca, get some sun, watch some Miyazaki films, and who knows, maybe even drive over to Disney world….To be continued…

London Fashion Week Day One
One month ago already, Peter and I headed to London in a moment’s notice after being invited to spring/summer 2014 fashion week. We spent our first day in Big Ben’s home walking the streets and enjoying the tourist attractions that are Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. Well, that and sleeping off the jet lag…not the best method if you ask me. Finally we ended our night an Nobu eating next to one of my many favourite British models, Jourdan Dunn. The next morning it was time for business as we headed to the LFW headquarters in Somerset House’s beautiful courtyard. The street style was obnoxiously wonderful and bold, as even fur wasn’t considered taboo despite the warm climate. Nothing was off the table. I felt almost underdressed heading into the tents, as if I hadn’t gotten the “less is definitely not more” memo, but man did I enjoy the show.
We headed into Jean-Pierre Braganza’s ARCHITECTONIC SS14 presentation and my lovely husband took the roll of photographer, as I admired the geometric, color-blocked, cutout, silk, and embellished looks walking before me. Jean-Pierre’s concept for the garments; an apocalyptic interpretation of Matthew Barney’s film River of Fundament, the decay of Detroit’s industry. This came across with images of chrome and motorcycle parts imprinted on pieces like silk blouses and a cotton jacquard sweatshirt with matching skirt. Many of the pieces derived from theme, and were an eclectic mix of streamline ensembles that would be worn off the runway and into the streets. I know I would have loved to borrow that cutout mini dress with impressive lapels for our evening out. A cool colour pallet, bold lines, interesting prints and appropriate use of embellishments will surely make this a well sold collection. As we headed out of the show we got another look at the lovely Ms. Dunn making her way through Somerset House hoarded by photographers. We then headed back to the St. Martin’s Lane hotel for a quick change and prepared for the day’s next show…
