Darlin' Don't You Go And Cut Your Hair

Thursday, January 27, 2011


I'm just so lucky to have Sofia in my life. She makes the best mix tapes i've ever recieved and truly cares about my iron deficiency. And jeez, whatta babe, are you melting yet? Theres a lovely picture of Sofia floating around the internet, going crazy viral, possibly due to its presence on calivintage and the fact that it was taken by the lovely Yuli Sato. Czech it.

What can I say? Together we make two peas in a very red pod.

All of these photos are taken by the magnificent Daryl Banks. The title in a reference to a Pavement song that I listened to over and over when I cut my hair super short and regretted it about two weeks later.


Citizen Vintage

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Hey! There's a feature of me up on Crimson Rosella, so welcome all of Kirstins readers!

I am so excited to present to you Citizen Vintage! Brooke, Becky and Lara are opening a vintage shop in Montreal and they asked me model some of their spring collection - you can check out their pretty tumblr for a bunch of pictures from the shoot. I studied theater in university, and i've always thought of it as the most collaborative art one can practice. But when I was in their new showroom, I realized fashion is maybe even more so. And being in the hands of such capable, talented women, I felt I was in the midst of a total dream team.

If you're in Montreal their first sale is happening February 10th - 16th. I am going on the first day, theres a little white knit crop top I'm dying to call mine!

Deets: "Our studio is located at 5752 St. Laurent and will be open to the public from 10am - 7pm each day during the event. Remember, we’re only open for a week at a time, so this is your chance to pop in and see what we’ve been up to."

I developed my first roll of film on the Diana Mini today! I was told Diana's are finicky and unreliable, so I shot this roll carelessly, expecting one or two of the pictures to turn out. But to my surprise, almost every photo turned out, and I actually like a lot them! Mazel Tov Diani Mini, you're a woman now...a little older and a little wiser, but I will always see you as my little girl. (Time for the loony bin and by that I mean bed!)

Izzy from YeYe! took these shots while I was goofing around posing for her etsy shop (some of the pics are up already!) Hanging out with Izzy was heaven! A kind of place where organic banana's, fascinating chats and vintage dresses rule the world! She really is incredible, one of the most inspired (and inspiring!) people I've ever been around. And the clothes. My god the clothes! She's an amazing stylist and a true collector and creator of vintage goodies. Learn more about Izzy on her blog which has been one of my favorites for a while now.

I also modeled for Citizen Vintage last week. Becky, Brooke and Lara were truly wonderful and will be getting a post of their own soon! For now, do check out some of the shots on their facebook page.

Holy Kn*t!

Saturday, January 15, 2011

It's not every day I see a fabulously dressed girl and the first thing I think is "Wow, that girls got great knits." (hehe) But its been happening a lot lately on the web, all thanks to Tara-Lynn, the Canadian knitter behind the etsy shop Yarn Over Movement and Rachael from the etsy shop Softspoken. I want to wrap myself in all of their creations!

Izzy from La Vie C'est Yeye is in the last picture and I had the pleasure of hanging out with her today to take some shots for her Etsy Shop. It was so much fun! Pics are up on her blog so hop on over and see for yourself!

*All photos are Yarn Over Movement knits from Tara Lynn's blog Stay Fancy Free EXCEPT for the first picture which was modeled by Dear Beatrice and made by Softspoken! The bloggers modeling the knits are Dear Beatrice The Clothes Horse Hannah and Landon Calivintage Clever Nettle Lay Me In Some Tall Grass; Let Me Do My Thing And La Vie C'est Yeye


Still Life of a Blogger

My friend Sofia lives in Toronto with three amazing cats and one amazing photographer named Daryl Banks. One day over dinner she said to me "I want to arrange a shoot for you with Daryl. As a present!" We set the date for December 18th - which I decided was also going to be my second birthday, Toronto Stylez. The shoot took place at night, and the day was spent shopping for a dress to wear to said shoot, getting my eyebrows done and eating dinner with my family at my favorite restaurant Rodneys Oyster bar.

These pictures are very special for me. I want to keep them forever and pass them down my future child, who will pass them down to her future child who will pass them down to their child who will say "Thats my great-bubby when she turned 21 for the second time."

Big special thanks to Daryl and Sofia. ** And on another note, to the girl from class heres the documentary I was rambling on about

I love the way Scott Schuman of the Satorialist sees the world - the way he walks and watches and waits for someone special to walk by - "I don't know what it is. What that thing is that draws you to a person. But you just let it happen. It seems odd, but its almost like letting yourself fall in love a little every day."

Eye Candy. Thats what this shoot is for me. The colors and compositions, the clothes, her pinned hair (which I plan to copy strand for strand!)...so dreamy, I just get lost in it! It's from Lula's Red Hair Issue and Cyntia Dicker is in it, who I've loved ever since high school, the day I saw her freckly face in Teen Vogue to be exact!

Livin La Vida Vintage

I’m never that intense about sticking to my resolutions but I’ve always used the turning of a new year to reflect on the last twelve months and start envisioning and dreaming for the coming dozen. This year I'm thinking vintage and bringing more of it into my life. Cause with every little bit I collect, I find a little more of myself (d’aaaw) and I hope you’ll slowly but surely start to see this evolution on my blog too. If I was going to make a legit resolution out of this, it would be a challenge to myself – only buy vintage for the next year.

How was your new years eve btw? Equipped with a bottle of champagne and a fancy hat on my hairs, I took to the streets of Toronto with my closest friends from grade 12, who I've been lucky to spend every new years with since. These pictures were taken in a cafe, which we had full reign of for the night (belongs to a friends mom) then off to a bar in Kensington Market (where I got my little black dress) and later, a party!
