Julie and I ventured west of the city to check out a few of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival exhibits. I wanted to be comfy cozy but still appear festival chic so I threw on my new denim jeggings purchased at Costa Blanca for $10. As soon as I slipped on a pair of these babies, I knew that my legs would not see a pair of twill jeans until the close of the still young summer. They are beyond comfortable and feel good to the touch – I am just waiting for the day when I see a girl rocking them at the gym in yoga class or on a treadmill. My jacket is from Value Village purchased for $8; tank is from American Apparel and necklace is from F21 for $12. My patent pumps are Steve Madden and I bought them a few years back at an outlet in the states for $50 – nude pumps should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe.
There are countless exhibits and installations in the city of Toronto this month for the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. It was hard to narrow down what we wanted to see but Roman Elinson’s Snowglobe City collection caught my eye. My trips down to NYC always include a mission to find a Manhattan snow globe and sadly I have never come across one. (Seriously if you ever see one pick it up and I would be most happy). Snowglobe City is a collection of photographs shot with the Lomo Fisheye – a toy camera that uses a plastic wide-angle lens to create a spherical effect. To my surprise, the majority of pics were taken in NYC so for that short while at the Cream Tangerine Gallery, I had my own NYC snowglobe. CM
