a week’s worth – 30-05-09
Welcome to the triumphant return of A Week’s Worth, documenting what I did all week – a little peek into the life of a fashion illustrator and blogger. It has been on hiatus for two weeks while I didn’t have a lot to report – this week I remembered to take my camera along to two events.
This week has been all about catching up on my correspondence and getting back into the swing of life in the studio. It is great to be back.
I went out for the first time on Monday night to the meeting of the Style Advisory Council at the Textile Museum of Canada. The council is putting the final touches on the Androgyny party next Thursday – tickets are selling fast so you should get yours now!
Wednesday I went west in the rain to check out the launch party for Parlour, a brand new salon on Ossington Avenue. The haircuts and colours are gorgeous and the look is hip yet with a sense of humour and humility. I used to work on the same block as colourist Franz, and I took a picture of him being interviewed by a reporter from Torontoist.
Thanks to the ladies at Lotus Leaf for the invitation! I had fun hanging out with the FASHION lovelies and saying hey to some new friends and acquaintances. I guess my social life is getting back on track.
Did you know that Gala Darling is in Toronto for a few weeks? If you spot her hot pink beacon, please make her feel welcome and make the effort to share all the great things in the city with her. If you’re not familiar with her blog, iCing, do check it out! She’s positive and naughty, inspirational and indulgent, all at the same time. It is a big deal, fashion-blogwise.
Friday was “wear a gown to work day“, however I didn’t do very much work and I didn’t wear a gown. I know. Like Jennifer Campbell, I live a gownless existence. But Loenne did and look how cute she is!
In my gownless state I didn’t feel quite up to attending the “semiformal” Luminosis party. So instead I took The Grumpy Owl out to check out My Tapes, an event where people watch funny Youtube videos together.
The reason why I went was to see the very special premiere of Episode 9 of Nirvana The Band The Show. The guys were really nice and tolerated me taking very badly lit pictures of them without warning.
If you haven’t watched NTBTS yet, go do it. It is beyond funny (especially if you follow the music scene in Toronto), a classic buddy comedy, irreverent and affectionate. These guys are going to be big time someday soon, so you can say that you were a fan way back when.
How was your week?
