a week’s worth – 27-02-09

A Week’s Worth documents what I did all week – a little peek into the life of a fashion illustrator and blogger.

I fell off the wagon this week – when it comes to taking pictures.  Not that there was much going on worth taking pictures of.  Since I got back from Las Vegas my schedule is just a bit off, I felt a bit off, and I opted to hibernate and work for most of the week, missing some nice weather and probably some cool events.  You know what?  I will just get back to it next week, I have lots of stuff planned, and I will take photos again.

The highlight of the week was last night, when finally got tired of being lonely and went to visit The Deadly Nightshades.  I got a sneak peek at their new website (super cool!) and a couple of their designs that they will be showing at [FAT], Toronto’s alternative fashion week coming up in April.  These girls have a strong case of fashion-designeritus – the up-past-midgnight-dying-fabric-in-the-bathtub kind.  I love them, such vivid characters and full of passion for each other and creating things.

Ok, so as not to post a week’s worth without pictures, I want to include two favourites from last week.

me at POOL

Here I am at the POOL Style Sight photo booth.  A little more dressed up than usual.  I can finally put my hair back in a wee ponytail which means that of course, I can’t resist.  Shirt is H&M, skirt is thrifted Banana Republic, shoes from Zola.

Ray at the library

Ray and I have been going to the library frequently over the last month.  I go to the fashion stacks and Ray visits the machining stack.  I spend $50 a year on an alumni library card at the Ryerson Library and it is so worth it.  The librarians are friendly, and because it serves a school with a lot of design and engineering programs, the selection is incredible.

How was your week?

    1. I was looking for a book on Vionnet earlier this week at the Ryerson Library… maybe you’re the one who checked it out?

    2. I love school libraries! When I — finally! — graduate from UBC this spring, I’m coughing up the 35 to stay in the loop. Life just isn’t the same without the OED at your finger tips. Okay, *my* life isn’t.
