The big news came sooner than I thought! I finally got Mooie Revolution up and running! What started as a simple lunch conversation with Pee has evolved into our very own etsy shop. We’ve scoured for vintage clothing and created outfits that can work with every woman’s wardrobe.

I remember the first time I stepped foot into Top Shop in London, it made me so warm and fuzzy inside. I’m itching for Top Shop to open in Yorkdale on Oct 5th. I don’t know which crowds I want to brave, the grand opening one or the weekend one. But for now, to satisfy my thirst for top shop, I’ll put together an outfit from the US site. =)

and something big is happening soon, real soon!

Pee and I dropped by the Aberfoyle Antique Market on Saturday for their Fall special. We were like two little girls in a candy store. We kept finding these great finds and dreaming of how we were going to put them in our apartment once we can finally move in together. They had musicians playing around the market and this band stole my heart. I was boogieing right along side with them. I also kept finding all these cool prams this time, it’s too bad you won’t ever be able to use these in the city since they can’t fit on the TTC!I obviously couldn’t resist myself and picked up this baby. I’m head over heels in love. I did a bit of research and this little guy was made in 1901!

I love Candy Chang‘s work, she’s a multi disciplinary designer/artist that tries to “make cities more comfortable for people.” I love her installations, they are so simple but  it does such a great job at engaging the public and getting them thinking how they would like their neighbourhood to be or reflecting their lives . The picture on top is part o the project Before I Die. She put up chalkboards on an abandoned building and had chalk available for people to fill in Before I die I want to ___________.

What do you want to do before you die?

Another favourite project of mine was her I Wish This Was. Candy made these simple fill in the blank stickers and gave the public a voice as to what they would like to see vacant buildings turn into. We are always thinking of how to build something bigger, taller and better but we forget about derelict sites and abandoned buildings. Do you have vacant buildings in your neighbourhood that you wish could turn into something meaningful?
