This past Tuesday, a few friends and I visited The Room at The Bay. Our highlight? Their mini-exhibition of Torontonian street-style blogger Tommy Ton‘s photos of Vogue Nippon’s editor-at-large Anna Dello Russo, dubbed “When Tommy Met Anna.” Finally, accessible fashion that is not in New York or Paris but closer to home!
We climbed the escalators to the third floor of The Queen Street Bay and at that moment, I found all the clothes I need to play dress-up with.
Isn’t the Mary Katrantzou Serendipity long dress just out of this world? Who has ever thought of prints like that before? It’s like someone stuck an interior designer into fashion.
The photos that Tommy Ton take are thoroughly inspirational. The man’s got taste.
Imagine having hair like that! And if ever do find a wig with vivacious flowing layers, I’ll hit the dance floor immediately.
There are two main barriers between ordinary people and haute clothes. There’s the obvious, our pockets are not of velvet interiors and a mink trims. And then, there is the fact that even if the clothes are lying in our closet, they’ll remain lying in our closets. Is there any occasion glamorous enough for $6,255 to hang on our shoulders?
The above is very garden art studio appropriate.
Stand behind this dress and wait until someone walks by. The light, blue fabric swooshes up and for a split second, you feel like you’re in an animated photo.
I can see Katy Perry rocking this…
I finally had to tear myself from the decadent eye-candy that was runway-fresh Chanel and Louboutin and Armani. The sales ladies were subtly adamant about our leaving. “Do you need help?” “Can we help you?” Can-you-please-leave-our-store-before-we-have-to-wipe-every-surface-you-touched?
Also unfortunate was the fact that I couldn’t meet the photographer and the muse in person the Thursday before because of a science summative project.
…Education always gets in the way.
