“Holiday, celebrate

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice”

It would be so nice!

I’m going on holiday to Montreal, PQ y’all!  So I won’t be posting for a good long week….

I’ll def post on some Montreal styles that I happen to see.  Trendy-trendy.  There will be tonnes of shops I’d like to visit too.  I will def have to visit Les Ailes, since there was one when I was living in Ottawa, but it shut down before I really had a chance to get out to that mall to see it!  I also want to check out unique specialty shops like Arthur Quentin, (39 rue St-Denis), which is a gourmet chef shop, maybe I can pick something up for my brother who is just starting out his international chef career?  Of course, a foodie myself, I’ll have to check out Fromagerie Hamel, and few boulangeries etc.  *drool for cheese*  And of course, I’ll have a Smoke Meat Sandwich at the famous Shwartz’s!  I’m not even much of a “meatie”, but they’re so darn juicy!

Au revoir et a bientot!!!





MET Costume Gala 2009 Favorites

5 05 2009

So it looks like there was a good turnout of stars at the MET Costume Gala 2009 yesterday evening, despite so many designers, thus models turning cheek on the event.  I’m not going to get into the politics of all of that, for one, I don’t know enough and two, I simply don’t care.  I just love the clothes!

So here are some of my faves of the night:

Justin Timberlake in William Rast, Jessica Biel in Versace Atelier

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.  Justin looks smashing, and that dress on Jessica is just amazing in Versace Atelier.  One of the best of the night.  Chris De Burgh’s “Lady In Red” went off in my head.  However, it could have been worn with much LESS bronzer!!!

Bar Refaeli in Marchesa

Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton

Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton.  She took a risk, and has show up on a few worst-dressed lists as a result, but I just loved it!  I could see how it could go wrong, but I just thought it was right.  I loved the cutesy hair also.  It has a very harajuku feel.  It’s a costume ball afterall!

Rachel Weisz in Vera Wang

Rachel Weisz in Vera Wang. I absoluately love this dress.  I absolutely HATE that dark purple lipstick!  She looks like a corpse.  I didn’t think I could see Rachel Weisz look terrible.  Guess I was wrong.

Rihanna in Dolce & Gabbana

Oh, to see and be seen!
