Blog Commenting

This morning I woke up and checked my email the same as I do every morning. There in my inbox was a blog comment. I always get excited to hear what people have to say about my blog. Well this morning the comment was mean and very hurtful. I thought about not publishing it at all but instead I am posting it. 

"you have really mediocre, mall style. i really have given your blog a chance hoping you'd branch out from dynamite and joe fresh, but you really prove the stereotype that sometimes you can't rely on cheap basics. some people can take basics and pair them with unique pieces to make it work, but you are one le chateau purchase away from a fashion nightmare." Kristen

I was going to click on Kristen and see what she was all about but I could not. Not only has she left my a very hurtful comment but she has left in with out a way that there is no way for me to comment back to her. I do not feel that I have "mediocre, mall style." The comment that hurts the most is the last sentence, I am definitely far from a fashion nightmare. Yes, in the last little while I have been struggling with my style but she does not know why and to be cruel is unnecessary. Plus if you are going to be mean, try not being a chicken about it and let me respond to you. 

I recently went through a very stressful time, and I lost a lot of weight. Most of my unmall pieces do not fit me anymore, and being that I am a server and student, I can not afford to replace them all at once. I do not live with my parents with unlimited funds. I have school and rent to pay for before buying pricey unique clothing. Clothes, even though I love them with all my heart, are not everything! So for me to go out and buy all new pieces is not going to happen. At the moment it is mostly basic, like jeans, that I need to replace with ones that fit. 

So to Kristen I say I don't want someone like you reading my blog anyways. It is for fun! If you don't like it, all you had to do was not read it again. There was no need to knock a person down, when their already feeling style awkward! Hope you feel good about yourself for leaving mean comments, and have a great day!

Round Two, BABY!!!

I know that my last post was about hockey as well but its everywhere! This beautiful city is EXPLODING with Canuck Fever! And its about to get worse! Your Vancouver Canucks have made it into the second round, now all they have to do is sweep that too. 

Everytime this happens people descend upon Robson St and have their own unofficial Canucks fan parade. So on my way home from class I stop by to see and of course there they were. I would have been watching the game if not for class and last time I was there in the parade. They drive up and down the street with flags and jersey galore, this time even brooms. You know for sweeping the series! It is amazing to see the joy of the fans and the city coming together for the team!

Go, Canucks, Go!!!

NHL and Vogue


So in the things that I would call crazy column is the NHL and VOGUE collaboration that I learned about in class last night. I'm sure it is not new news for the fashionistas of the world that over the summer Sean Avery of the New York Rangers did an internship at Mens Vogue. What is crazy is one of the reasons behind the internship. Yes, Avery was quoted " I am in love with fashion" but turns out that its is also a way to sell tickets to the games. 

In the States not a lot of women go to hockey games and the NHL thought that having a hot young player intern at at an amazing fashion magazine was a great way to get a whole new demography of women to paid top dollar to go watch hockey game, therefore boosting the lacking ticket sales! In turn Vogue was hoping to sell more issues of Mens Vogue to hockey minded men. 

I think its amazing, because apparently its WORKING! At a recent Rangers game some true fashionistas were spotted hanging out in one of the sport boxes, Carmen Kass and Chloe Sevigny to name a couple. I couldn't find a picture of this as hard as I tried to look for it in google so if anyone has it, please let me know! 

We all know that maybe this did not work out so well for Mens Vogue as it fell to the recession but maybe if it makes a comeback this will be a way to help sales. 

To me personally it doesn't make me want to watch more games but I think that being Canadian I already watch a lot of the games! Not trying to generalize but maybe as Canadian women grow up with the game we already want to support our NHL team! I know I do, and I definitely consider myself a fashionista. Also I think that if they were going to pick someone to be a figure head for the NHL  Sean Avery is not a good choice, he is an ass! I mean who else gets suspended from their team for making rude comments about their ex girlfriend (Canadian Elisa Cuthbert) to the press? This is not a man I would want to know, EVER! 

So let me know what you think about this strange collaboration. I  look forward to hearing your thoughts.

FIN and I

Thats right people I got my picture with Fin! So okay this is less of a fashion post and more just a "I LOVE MY CITY" post but I really do love my city! I love watching the Canucks play and even though we lost at Thursday game, I finally got to get my picture with Fin. For those not in the know, he's the Canucks mascot and the coolest Killer Whale since "Free Willy"  Now we just have to make it to the play offs where hopefully the boys will kick some serious ass!!
