Jesse and I live in a beautiful heritage home, but if you know anything about old homes, closet space is not a priority. Our guest room originally was half a closet, half a sleeping place for guests. Things were a little crammed, and for a fashion lover, closet space is a priority (if you have the space). We decided to turn our very neglected office into a small walk in closet. By no means is it a professional walk-in (which […]
Saffron Road, a local boutique to the city of London hosted a party featuring Greta Constantine. The evening was filled with interesting people, shopping, drinks (one called Greta… the other Constantine), and the guests of honour, Stephen and Kirk, the Canadian designers themselves! Throughout the evening, models would be walking about the party, sporting Greta’s Spring 2013 collection (draw-dropping, attention to detail, beautiful). Below are a few pictures we snapped throughout the party, so lovely spending time with great people, […]

This year, the second year fashion merchandising students are putting on a gala event fashion show, themed “Spreading Goodwill” I had the pleasure of creating the invitations for our select VIP guests. Who better to ask for help regarding a creative craft such as this? My Aunt Jen, aka AJ. She rocked my socks with helping create these invites, during my visit to Winnipeg. Thank you! To follow along with the behind the scenes of the show, check out […]
Congratulations to Jillian and Dallen! We can’t believe a few years ago, a disaster double date (for the both of us) would ever lead to both couples getting hitched! Jill and Dal invited their closest friends to a rustic barn outside of Winnipeg, where they shared their “I do’s”, followed by a candlelit dinner in an upstairs loft. Only having a weekend in Winnipeg, we were grateful to have been included in this special day, not to mention getting to […]

Raffle tickets were also handed out, giving each guest a chance to win a Love Heals necklace. Ironically , being one of the only men in attendance I held the winning ticket. I had the pleasure of […]

Living in a new city usually means meeting new friends (well lets hope). We are extremely thankful for the many wonderful people we have met, and who have become dear friends, within such a short period of time. These photos document a well spent Thanksgiving Sunday with a few lovely people. Cheers.

The song Young Prince by Wax Society featuring Saint Kris & Cowen is one of our favourites (instantly) . Such a great fall anthem, especially since it’s starting to get a little chilly out, this song will get your blood pumping! We know 2/3 of this collaboration, and look forward to meeting Cowen one day! Thanks to a world of technology, these artists could collaborate not just with music, but with a video as well. The video was shot in […]

It’s a pleasure being the visual merchandiser for Leslie’s Clothing. SO MANY beautiful things, I don’t know what to do with myself! I am amazed when people can actually leave the store empty handed! There is something for everyone, if you’re needing a treat, or needing to treat someone, come on down! More pictures here.

We both love shopping boutiques; however, it is rare to find a shop that we both equally love. ‘We both found love’, as Rihanna might say at Saffron Road! This well established Richmond Row (London) boutique offers Jennifer plenty of sophisticated elegant fashion selection, and also offers Jesse a selection of men’s casual wear, James Perse and J Shoes being two of his favourite purchases thus far. We’d like to thank Gail-Lynn and all the ladies of Saffron for being […]

I’m LOVING my new “Fall Necessity” I snagged from Leslie’s Clothing! Such a great pair of boots to compliment every layered fall outfit! -Jen
“Love me , Love me, Say that you love me.” WILDFOX has officially made its way into my personal wardrobe! A couple months ago, the ‘reps’ for Wildfox were visiting the boutique I work in. They mentioned Romeo and Juliet as being the theme for this years fall (Wildfox) collection. I thought back to high school, when reading this particular book… and couldn’t imagine how Wildfox was going to incorporate the book within their branding; however, I did NOT even […]
