In my last post I discussed a few events I didn’t write about, including my birthday, Vintage’s Night Out, and the DIScONNECT Fashion Film Festival. Behold! One post containing all three.
I shall begin with my birthday:
On March 11th, I turned 20. Since I am no longer a big fan of partying because I am old and frail, I decided to have a low key dinner at a restaurant with 22 friends. Shane Kippel magically made an appearance because I’ve had a crush on him since Degrassi season 1. Is that lame? It probably is. I was ecstatic.
Moving forward. Plaid Magazine organized an after-hours shopping event in downtown Toronto. The city’s best vintage and consignment stores were open from 7PM to midnight, hosting parties and offering exclusive discounts to attendees. I ended up at all of my favourite stores, including Magwood, Pretty Freedom, Philistine, and Penny Arcade. Each location was poppin` with complementary drinks and lots of stylish people. Here’s a photo from a post in the Ryerson Lucid blog (click here to read the original post):
Finally, the most exciting event of all was the DIScONNECT Fashion Film Festival, which took place right smack in the middle of Toronto Fashion Week, in the gallery-esque venue The Hoxton. The short (and artsy) films featuring local talent projected on the walls, the amazing DJs, and the fantastic drag queens made the night quite delightful. Here is the one and only non-embarrassing photo of me pulled from the Société Perrier website.
