My summer plans just got a little better...i just found out that I will be heading to San Francisco July 15th-20th. I went once before but did not have nearly enough time there so I cannot wait to explore the city a little more!
Who has some good restaurant/bar (looking for some live jazz)/vintage store recommendations? Or better yet....who is there and wants to meet up?!

I used to be a dancer. Since I was 3 until my late teens, i did the works-jazz, acro, tap, ballet...but if you saw how ungraceful I am on my feet, you would never guess I was (I am that girl who trips constantly). This clumsy trait of mine is reflected in the state of my shoes. No matter how many times I clean them, take them to the shoe maker for repair-they still look like they got trampled by a herd of bulls-especially after a night of dancing!
These wedges are a prime example. I bought them a month ago and I already had to take them to my shoe maker Nunzio (yes- I am on a first name basis with my shoe repair guy) because the strap came off!
I am glad they are fixed though..because they..are...so...COMFY! You may be seeing them in a lot of future posts ...if, of course, they live another few months.

since laying eyes on the Miu Miu bird pattern, i've been obsessed with animal print everything. and i don't mean leopard ( but that of course is always a small obsession). I'm talking birds, cats and bunny print.
I tried to get the Zara cat print romper....sold out. Then there was Nasty girl's feline print dress. Also sold out. (I'd link to both of these but it will make me dwell that I don't own them). Then, i even attempted to paint my nails with the Miu Miu bird pattern like Stop it right now did. All attempts failed
When i went to the Mara Hoffman sample sale in New York a month ago, I fell hard for this green print dress and was not letting another animal get away so easily
"It's tiny mis-shaped elephants! Oh-Em-Geeeee..so you!" said the sales clerk in his high pitched voice.
I don't think they are elephants (my vote is on an octopus or a body builder with no head) and I knew him for a whole 30 seconds..but whatever this little creature was...it was not escaping.

Some snaps from my time in New York a few weeks ago.
I wish that...
1. New York was an hour drive away
2. Magnolia Cupcakes delivered.
3. Green card Visas were given away like hotcakes to Canadians that really wanted them
4. I could put the love I have for New York into words
Chic Prints by OPI for Sephora mixed by Minx
Was very excited to try the whole Minx thing out and Eee! They live up to the hype. At least for me.
I remember when I got my braces off for the first time...I kept feeling my teeth. They felt so...different.
And that's how I have been with my nails. I keep petting them excessively. So silky & smooth (until you reach the edges that is-i did a horrible filing job)
It's also been fun telling others that I did this myself. HA.
One day my friends..one day..

I spent the weekend getting some R&R-taking in the summer heat, reading, day dreaming, eating good food, wishing it was summer all year round..pretending the evergreens in my backyard were palm trees.
I got my new speech necklace last week and it hasn't left my neck since.
And I swear I am not just saying that because the designer is my brother.
When he first started designing these, there was several morphed crosses all around our house and large black wooden ones in the garage (used for the shoot). Needless to say my catholic parents were very scared and I felt like our house was haunted...but the final product was damn worth it!

I was in New York last weekend.
My friend & I took a last minute getaway for the Canadian long weekend and within an hour of being there-we were within metres of Mary Kate Olsen. Are you jealous yet?
I know it sounds awfully cliche to say that MK is a personal favourite style icon....but I'm sorry, she is.
We were on a quiet Soho street (just off Mott) and I was pierced by this amazing brown bag that this tiny little girl was sporting. I looked up to see it was MK and immediately my jaw fell open. I found the bottom pic from OlsenAnonymous where you can actually see the bag!
