Rachel Sin @FAT & the 3rd Day of Shows...

...okay so is everyone ready for a really long visual post? I hope so considering that's what I have in store for you...Last night was the 3rd night of F.A.T. which featured among other things my girl Rachel Sin...the show was amazing, the music was great and the overall atmosphere was incredible...not sure what it is about F.A.T. that makes it so chill but I am definitely impressed and fully intend to come back for seconds (and thirds...and fourths...etc.) Aside from the spectacular fashion, it was also nice to re-discover my hometown Toronto, because after the show a few friends and I headed to the Drake Hotel for some drinks and it REALLY made me miss living here...but enough nostalgia for now...here are some pics from the shows last night, which were both creative and entertaining...Rachel Sin kicked off the evening along with her partner in crime for the night, Garde Del Avante Jewellery, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint, quite the contrary see for yourself...enjoy...

...and that's that folks...I, unfortunately did not get a chance to make it out tonight, which is the last night of the F.A.T. week but I had a blast all the other days...tomorrow I head back to Ottawa~a little bitter-sweet, happy to see my love, but sad to say "see you later" to this hometown city of mine...until next time, have a great weekend everyone...

First day of F.A.T...

Last night was the first official night of F.A.T. in Toronto, and I had the privilege of attending both the shows as well as hang out back stage, help Rachel Sin and Naanafya of Garde Del Avante Jewellery with fittings and a run-through...not bad for a rainy Thursday in the city (I am really starting to like Thursdays-rain or shine!) Anyway, it was a great event, completely laid-back and unpretentious...I got to meet some cool people including a Slovak designer named Lubica, see some great shows, ogle some interesting art and listen to some very funky music...most importantly though, I was able to get dolled up, spend time with my good friends Rachel and Bogdan and have some laughs all the while enjoying and celebrating my favourite "F" word~Fashion! (what were you thinking?) Oh yeah, and I also managed to take some photos...enjoy...
PS: this is literally only a small taste of what went on, for more photos of the event check out my flickr site here...
