I’ve felt more opinionated about fashion trends lately. I love statement sleeves – short and long, but you’ll never catch me in a tee with a cold shoulder. I believe that one day thousands of women will wake up and wonder why they spent so much $$$ on clothes with holes. Too many women look alike these days – what ever happened to expressing your individuality through personal style? As you can imagine, I’m not a fan of distressed jeans either.
Once I became a fan of the hosts of MTV’s The Hills: After Show, there was no going back. Dan Levy and Jessi Cruickshank now work for CBC and they’re both integral members of Toronto’s cultural scene.
When I heard that Dan was going to host a menswear launch party at the Gap store on Bloor St., I immediately RSVP’d. Once there, he recognized me from his eyewear party at Jonathan and Olivia, so it wasn’t awkward. He told me that he’s hosted this event 3 years in a row and he’s been working towards it ever since he worked for Gap as a salesman before he was famous.
