We are throwing a party, everybody clap your hands! Alex Liang of Kenton Magazine and yours truly are throwing a Fashion Week after party at The Stirling Room in the distillery district right here in Toronto. The party starts at 10pm on Tuesday, October 23, 2012. We’ll have Kandi Apple Nails on site doing nail art (because you know how much that pleases me), and Nella Bella has graciously donated handbags up for silent auction. All proceeds will go towards The Breast Cancer Foundation since it’s October, the month of pink. We want to share our love for fashion with all of our friends, fans and readers, so please join us! Come say hi and have a drink with us!
I’ve been meaning to write this post for some time now. “Hey, retail stores in the flesh! You’d better start putting those price tags in visible areas lest you want to be swallowed up by the Internet,” – and I’ve been wanting to say that for a while.
Here’s the thing. You walk into a highbred retail store – not H&M; more Holts, TNT or Intermix and don’t even get me started on Gucci – you see something you like; a little delectable treat, perhaps. Bags are the number one worst for this. Modesty, or a tight budget, a shopper’s natural reflex is to look at the price (or, in this case, try to find it).
