Some People Never Change

I'm fascinated by my families old photographs, and I know I'm not alone in this. Artist Irina Werning worked with their magical appeal by recreating old photographs in the present day. The result is hilarious, odd, perverted, sweet and basically a mind fuck! See the rest here.

She Speaks!

Monday, February 21, 2011

I mentioned in this post that I was on the radio for my friends show, The Tuesday Morning After. I did an 8 minute stint on winter fashion in Montreal and was pleased to have the studio laughing! To listen, click here and let the media player load - i'm speaking slightly after the halfway mark! Excuse the first minute or so, I was SO nervous my heart was pounding out of my chest! But after that, I got cozy and started to have fun with it :)

Speaking of radio, this is a video I saw filmed at the KEXP radio station in Seattle that launched my love for Florence and the machine. KEXP also got me on to The Tallest Man on Earth.

Someone wrote in the comments "at 1:31 I'm starting to have an orgasm." haha so true!!!


Put On The Red Light, Roxaaaaane.

Nightlife Magazine is a free mag that comes out once a week covering cultural type events in the city. It's got a street style section, and Hannah was featured this week! Which means Hannah was here!! And from what I can make out, I think this picture was snapped in my neighborhood. This excites me!

Today I ran after a lovely girl to ask her where her tights came from and after a few second she was like "Wait, do you have a website?" We bonded. We laughed. We cried. No, but seriously, that was a great moment and it made my day :) I just wish I wasn't such a shit when it comes to names. Could you comment and tell me it again??


Stayed Up All Night Listening To The Radio

Monday, February 14, 2011

Tuesday morning, at 8:25 am, I'll be speaking on McGill's radio station on the program "The Tuesday Morning After" about winter weather'll be lighthearted, all about how I negotiate Montreal's brutal winter - the good, the bad and the ugly!

If you can't tune in to CKUT 90.3 tomorrow morning, it will also be uploaded on to a podcast in a few days, and ill link it in this post once its up!

these pictures are showing what i wear when i tredge through the snow, my favorite exposed back vintage bathing suit, and all the bags i usually lug around with me when i go out (housing all the winter fixins that i stash in a corner and forget about!)

All Ideas Are True: Opening Ceremony SS11 from Opening Ceremony on Vimeo.

I'm aching to go thrift shopping for a few hours, running my fingers over fabrics, prints, cuts, and styles. Oh but tomorrow Citizen Vintage opens its doors for the first time from the 10th to the 16th and I'm seriously looking forward to it. Along with hitting up the vintage shops, I plan to use the rest of February to catch up on the school work I've horribly neglected and get out to the gym - there is no excuse, the Y is half a block away from me.

EDIT: Citizen Vintage Sale is moved to next Wednesday at a new space "Off Interarts" - check their facebook page for more info.

Dita Do

Monday, February 7, 2011

Picture 9

Love her or hate her (I personally love her) Dita Von Teese is so immaculate and polished its almost scary. But what does Dita do? As a girl, everyone called her by her given name, Heather Sweet. But by 15, Von Teese was drawn to a less than sweet aesthetic! She loved lacy lingerie, erotic dance, the pin up style, corsets, old hollywood...she started dancing in a strip club when she was 18 and played with the space to create playful and elaborate vintage dance routines. The burlesque came later in 1992, along with fetish and glamour modeling, costume design and acting. She is not the first woman to evoke the vintage burlesque visual, but she's certainly the most visible - Americas Next Top Model anyone? And she's got the best room of hats I ever did see.

These images are from InStyle and were found on The Vintage Valley.


Pizza and Sexy Girls

Saturday, February 5, 2011

I'm now a working woman! I got a job making appetizers at a lovely pizzeria in the Mile End called Magpie. It's really my kind of place. If someone took me on a date there, I'd totally go to first base with them. So I'm trying really hard to be a good worker and be myself at the same time. The training period has been difficult and its taken all my energy to adjust to the hours (no time for blogging!) but such is life.

lickety work

Onto sexy girls! These images are from Lickety Split, a sex positive smut zine that cumz out of Montreal (I mentioned it here too) The shoot above is from "The Work Issue" and took place in the editors home with some sexxxy pals I've met through the publication.

So what is this awesome zine? Well! Its for perverts and soccer moms, drag queens and artists, homos and homo cops..anyone who gets a kick out of content that's diverse, creative, artistic, political, thought provoking and saucy! The Work Issue is really fun. And I'm in it! Though you'll have to pick up the zine on etsy to see for yo'self.
