Ever Upward

These photos are from a few weeks ago, when Matt and I took a stroll in the ravine. At the time I was being silly, and enjoying such a beautiful day by frolicking barefoot in the forest. The following day my skin formed some sweet little rashes, along with the urge to scratch my skin off. I was kicking myself for thinking I could just lie in random bushes and grass without considering my very sensitive ginger skin (I don’t actually regret it). Luckily, it was not poison ivy.  Phew!

As for this past weekend, Meaghan and I went thrifting for the shop at a movie clothing sale they put on every couple months at some of the film studios here in Toronto. We brought Kira and our friend John along with us. The vintage goods weren’t exactly on the cheap side, but we did come back with some pretty amazing things that weren’t out of our budget. We are keeping them hidden away until we shoot our lookbook because they are that good!

This coming Sunday, my friend Alvin (one of the most talented dancers I have ever had the pleasure to dance alongside) asked us to participate in his benefit show for his upcoming stage production. Alvin and Hayle’s piece is about teens growing up in the 1940’s – a coming of age story, if you will. We provided some of our vintage for a photo shoot they had a couple months ago. And this time around, he asked us to have a little pop-up at the benefit. We will be there, along with some crazy talented dancers in Toronto. If your Sunday is free, come visit us, see some cool dancing and maybe bid on some stuff at the silent auction.
