Forever the fashion scandal; to fur or not to fur? Perhaps it's because i live in Canada, perhaps it's because i believe it is human nature, perhaps it is because i eat meat... I fur. That being said, my two favorite pieces have to be my white silver rabbit fur jacket and a recent gift i got from my bestie Marcus; a three quarter sleeve mink mid 60's boxy jacket. I will be sporting both this fall along with my numerous fur collars i like to accessorize with. If you would like to purchase friendly fur (which is always best) check out label Harricana, a Montreal based company which makes gorgeous pieces out of recycled fur. I was lucky enough to go through the fall collection a few months ago.

As most of you fashion mortals have done, i've started re-assessing what my wardrobe has already, what should be pulled out, what should be stored and of course - what should be purchased. I therefore begin my 'must haves' for Fall season 09 after having drank a bottle of pinot grigio (how fitting) with an oldie but bestie from my wee fashion years, my beloved Jayme. Today we talk SEQUINS.

I'm SO OVER SUMMER, the weather in Toronto has been complete shiat, we actually probably skipped over summer come to think of it and now i just want it to become an extended fall season. It's my favorite, all the layering, the scarves, the boots.... ohhhhh the boots. I'm hoping i'll be able to rob Isabel Marant's store whilst in Paris in early october.. sigh..
So we all know that Carine is a goddess. Emauelle Alt however should also be classed in the deity category don't you think? The fashion director at Paris Vogue has mean style. I love that she sticks to her own true look even though she probably get's massive amounts of free clothing thrown at her (Dear Emanuelle, should you perhaps be purging your overstuffed closet of any items that might appear 'tired' to you, i can provide you with an address immediately). I can also appreciate that she never appears 'perfect' like most american fashion people. You know she washes her own hair, cough aw. She's just a normal fashion addicted soul who really knows her stuff. Between her and Carine, it's a match made in fashion heaven.

Two of my favorite shots from the Givenchy Haute Couture show. I have a divine white tuxedo blazer with black satin lapels that will be coming back out this season. Black louche pants - yes please! Love the idea of pairing it with gold jewelry instead of with silver.... Here are some shots of what the armies of beauty did on the models for the runway. As much as you would like to, do NOT attempt at home.
