Miss Pink

If you have yet to visit the gorgeous new Pink Tartan boutique at 77 Yorkville, it's time to add it to your to-do list. Kim Newport-Mimran's flagship store not only hosts her full collection, but it also includes a well-selected number of her favourite goodies (most of which are now on my Christmas lists....for both giving and getting). The overall effect made me feel like not only was I getting better acquainted with the brand, but also with the lovely Kim herself (who, may I mention, was gracious and kind to everyone who walked into the store). Expect me to be a regular....I'll be shopping about once a paycheque ;)

In the Joe

My love for Joe Fresh tights started last fall. After repeatedly buying fancy lingerie store hosiery only to have them tear within a week, I decided I could no longer give into the silliness and on a trip to the Loblaws Superstore, I picked up a $5 pair of Joe Fresh tights. The first time I wore them I was late for an important dinner and in my rush from the parking lot to the restaurant, my leg brushed against a random bush of BURS. I was horrified. Not only was I late, but I was going to have to either walk into the restaurant with my prickly friend attached to my leg OR an enormous run in my tights. I held my breath as I took them off but the joke was on me - my Joe tights showed no signs of damage and I.was.hooked. They're perfect for fall and so inexpensive you feel zero guilt about buying them in every colour - betcha can't buy just one ;)

Dress: Massimo Dutti (a brand I fell in love with in Belgium)

Magical Movement

I know it's a little late but I really wanted to share some of my favourite shots from Amanda Lew Kee's show at LG Fashion Week. I am still on the fence when it comes to the blue lips movement, but gorgeous flowing dresses? Definitely down.

I was going to write about what I want most from this video, but unfortunately I don't believe that will be possible. The terrible truth is that I.WANT.EVERYTHING. 

The collection will be released on November 20....
