fashion, food and more food.11:54 AM
Happy Saturday errryone! This past Wednesday, I went to FASHION Magazine 35th Anniversary party at the stunning Fermenting Cellar in Distillery District (thanks M :)) and UMMMMM it was the sickest thing. Ever. I never seen so many beautiful, fabulous people all under one roof before.
Got a chance to meet Joe Mimran, founder of Joe Fresh and Club Monaco, his wife, Kimberly Newport-Mimran, president and head designer of Pink Tartan and Justina McCaffrey, haute couture wedding dress designer. It was a star-studded industry party but the most memorable face was definitely seeing supermodel Yasmine Warsame in person. Holy. Shit. She is a sight to behold - breathtakingly beautiful!
The event was sponsored by SKYY Vodka so you can guess what all the drinks were based on that night HAHA. Macaron bar, oyster bar, L'Oreal Paris makeup bar, multiple photo-ops... it was perfect!
Took me awhile to figure out what to wear, I was debating between these two but ended up with the blue dress and thank god I did.

Before the event, had dinner at the beautiful Tappo Wine Bar & Restaurant in Distillery District. Food was ahmaaaaazing amazing amazing. Had the fusilli con pollo affumicato, smoked chicken in a white wine herb sauce.
All in all, it was an amazing Wednesday night! Can someone give me a goddamn job in this industry so I can go to these things forever? Cries. LOL
Yesterday was a pretty fun day as well. Spent the 2nd half of the day downtown T.O for work. I presented one of my projects to the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Group (owners of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Raptors, Toronto FC and venues like the ACC). Pretty intimidating but it went well!
Then since the day ended early, my boss and I decided to go for happy hour. Why not. So we went downstairs to E11even (also owned by MLSE) for a couple cocktails - it was a goooooood time.
The drinks were out of this world. (OBVIOUSLY) I had to try their Caesar, tried Pretty in Pink (cosmo) and my favourite was Sunset Blvd, a sparking wine based cocktail. We decided to split an app, and opted for their meatballs, thinking it is big plate of multiple meatballs, but out came this giant ass single meatball the size of half my head. it was amazing (for $20 bucks for ONE meat ball, it better be friggin amazing.)
THENNNN after e11even, I met up with my fave Jay! Waiting for dinner, we did a quick 10 minute shopping trip at Topshop! I think this is officially my new favourite store. Picked up this dark olive green dress - you can't really see it in the pic but it's a textured fabric. It was so different, fell in love with it instantly!
Went to Joey Grill & Lounge for dinner - my first time there! It was delicious, had a rainbow roll (melt in your mouth) to start, greek souvalaki wrap for my main and an apple tart for dessert. Drooling as I am writing this.
Now I can finally have a couple hours of down time before going to CrushFest tonight! Talk soon!
