The Art of Window Displays

Current Trends

Have you ever entered an awesome store, left with a loaded shopping bag saying "It was all about the store's experience!"? Aside from questioning how that bag got in your hands in the first place, wasn't it just magical living vicariously through the fantasy world the store created? It felt great, it felt right, somehow promising you the necessity of this "find", that you walked out with.  You then repeat to yourself ideas about when and where you will make use of this "find", and also hopefully influence your friends into agreeing with your decision. You are convinced the choice was based on a rational choice, rather than an emotional one. I don't think so! You simply had no choice.

In the shades

Current Trends

Spring has finally rolled around and the weather has been glorious in Montreal. The spring sunshine makes it the perfect time to reach for the perfect pair of shades which look great, reflect your personality and most importantly, don't break the bank.

Plus a handy guide to help you decide which frames will suit your face shape. See for yourself.

Hamilton Watches, A Timeless Quality

Current Trends

As I approached the counter of watches following the Philip Sparks show during Montreal Fashion Week, my eye immediately caught a glimpse of an ad with Elvis Presley’s picture. Above it read "The American Brand since 1892." I learnt later that Elvis wore the Ventura watch in his film 'Blue Hawaii'. At the counter I met with the cordial (and impeccably-dressed) National Sales Manager, Mr. Thomas Sandrin, who introduced me to the remarkably appealing Hamilton watches.

On the Fashion Edge with Leather, Fishnet Stockings, and Three-Piece Suits

Current Trends

I wasn’t too fond of the name at first. I felt it was enough with the stereotyping of girl bands already. Lately, female acts always seem to have some kind of reference to pink, candies, fashion, or sex – one way or another – and I wondered if this was all we were really about.

The Romance and Style of Eternal Debauchery

Current Trends

Montreal may be one of the trendiest places on earth – and gradually making its way up the list of reputably fashionable capitals – but it is still relatively mild in temper. If you ignore our occasional raves and the annual Highlights Festival Nuit Blanche in February, you have to admit that there aren’t too many extravaganzas in this city.

So what can a girl do when she feels fanciful and wishes to put on her wildest gear in one last tribute to the Enfant Terrible? She grabs the opportunity to attend every outrageous gathering the Montreal Fine Arts Museum’s Eyes Wide Open committee has to offer. And ladies, the 2010 event is a soirée that no one should be allowed to miss.

Mon Collier de Fille

Current Trends

Voilà un petit moment que nous les filles, nous avons eu envie d'être de VRAIES filles. On est passées par toutes les phases, certaines glorieuses, dont les photos sont encore fièrement placardées sur les murs du salon; d'autres un peu plus douteuses, dont les photos sont placardées sur le même mur, pour les raisons opposées.
