Say Yes to Overalls

Overalls are not just for the tradesmen/women or farmers. They have evolved overtime to become a classic, easy to wear staple fashion piece. Classic full length overall. Shorteralls or Overalls. Whatever your preference, they are a great addition to any wardrobe. A couple of Sundays ago, with a little encouragement and stamp of approval from my roommate, she assured me that I looked awesome in my ... >

Don’t Wash Your Denim

Ok that seems pretty extreme. But to put it in a realistic sense, don’t wash your denim that often. I am not making this up.  The CEO, Chip Bergh,at Lev’s  backs me on this one.  He tells everyone to actually not wash denim at all in a recent interview, as he is wearing year old denim that have never seen a washing machine (Watch the video cleip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v ... >

Humans of NY

Do you know who Brandon Stanton is? If you don’t, I think you should! He is the brains and the man behind the camera of the ever growing popular HONY (no, not HORNY for those of you that have your minds in the gutter). HONY stands for Humans of New York. What started off as a simplistic personal project, has now blown up and evolved into an international success. This handsome fella is the b ... >

No Rubber Ducks During this Bathtime

It was bath time for the horses and ponies on Sunday and subsequently short wearing conditions for the humans.  With the warmer weather finally deciding to hang around and a sunny afternoon, it created the perfect conditions to give the equines a bath to rid them of all of their winter dandruff and dirt.  If this weather didn’t change to normal seasonal temperatures, I was starting to won ... >

Some Legs, Back and Vogue

Along her journey, she has asked me a few times to be her “project” if you will, and my face in some shape or form has become a part of her portfolio.  The most r ... >

This is Not a Toy

Yup, that’s right! “This is Not a Toy” is this awesome art exhibit happening right now at the Design Exchange near Union Station. (http://www.dx.org/). You can see how I just wanted to poke, prod and squish this thing, but it probably would have resulted in my getting kicked out by security. As the marketing pamphlet describes it, “This Is Not A Toy was conceived as a pres ... >

Rocks and Stuff

When you think of Ottawa, what comes to mind? The Parliament Buildings, Stephen Harper, Ottawa Sentators, the Canal and Beavertails. But, have you ever been to the Museum of Nature? It is right in the Nation’s Capital too! It is a beautiful building from the inside and out. From what I was told, it was Canada’s first “purposeful-built museum”, whatever that means.  The wom ... >

The Big Black Floppy Hat

So for us fashionistas out there, we all have the “little black dress” (maybe multiples in some cases).  Well why not also have the “big black floppy hat”? I am not even sure why I started liking the notion of it, but a light bulb just went off in my head last week and I thought that I could rock it! I did a little more investigating and found that lots of bloggers, celebr ... >
