After the Conair beauty lounge, we made our way to Power Ball 13 – one of the city’s largest charity events in support of The Power Plant art gallery. The annual gala raises vital funds for exhibitions and public programs.
The venue was packed with interesting people, contemporary art exhibits, DJs, and porchetta on a spit. It was a gorgeous night so we spent most of it mingling on the outdoor patio. Oh warm summer nights on a patio, please stay with us for a while.

The chignon was a fun hair-do, except it was so big it stuck to the velcro tent wall, and hit the roof of the cab while getting in.

I was recently introduced to musician Zola Jesus and I’m hooked. Check out her gothic-chamber-pop via her Myspace. She has 3 amazing songs and a cover for your listening pleasure. My icing on the cake today? I just found out she is playing at The Garrison next Thursday, September 30th for $12.50. That is a steal and I am there. Next week will be busy for Seven Dollar Pants. LouLou magazine has a shopping event on Bloor Street Wednesday, September 29th starting at 5pm. BCBG, The Gap, Jacob and Banana Republic are the main destinations and to top it off, Joe Fresh is setting up a pop-up store at 151 Bloor Street West. All you have to do to attend is sign up on LouLou’s shopping event page. Each store is offering discounts on new fall fashions as well as cocktails, munchies and giveaways. Who doesn’t love martinis and shopping? CM
Every time we check our Facebook homepages it seems everyone is getting married. How are we supposed to keep up with a new party dress for each one?
The Goal: find multiple budget friendly dresses
Where: Off the top of my head I always recommend checking FCUK, Mendocino on Bloor, Zara, Winners, and Cors Boutique on Queen West. Cors sells dresses by the likes of Catherine Malandrino, BCBG, Nicole Miller, and Betsey Johnston for a fraction of what they’re supposed to cost. I’m not sure how, but I don’t ask questions. I try on, I like, I buy.
The dress I’m wearing here came from Winners on Bloor for just $60. I wore it to my cousin’s wedding and got quite a few compliments on it. I like the fun zipper detailing and the way it bounces and moves when I walk.
Tip of the day: always be on the look out for great party dresses even if you don’t have an event coming up. Another invite is bound to land in your mailbox soon. And if not, throw a fancy dress party. Just be sure to invite us! JD
PS – excuse the band-aid on my leg…I forgot it was there.
