If you’re going to cover your shoulders: Masha Apparel

I  popped into Stylist Box to see what they were up to for Tiff. Gail and Christian (disclosure, friends of mine) were dressing some of the celebs here for the festival.

I won’t go into what they were wearing – other people will do that. But I wanted to show this gorgeous piece of clothing from Masha Apparel. Since it’s getting colder, this is a fun way to cover your shoulders at parties. More fun than a cardigan. 

Doing TIFF with a difference and Benedict Cumberbatch spotting

I’ve done the Toronto International Film Festival as accredited media when I was covering an entertainment maternity leave at Sympatico. It was fun and extremely tiring – our team worked for 11 days straight covering films, pressers and the parties. I slept for two days straight after the festival.

This year I decided to do it as a civilian – buy a ticket package, chose my films and line up with the crowd. No press screenings, no media pass, no nothing. Just lining up with the rest of Toronto. I did it with my friend, Diane, who wrote about the experience here. 

Toronto Premium Outlets

I popped into the new Toronto Premium Outlet this weekend on my visit to my parents. Or rather, Dad dropped off my mother and me because parking was nuts. People were circling, looking for parking. They were paying $10 to park in an auto mechanic’s lot across the road or parking in the cemetery parking lot.
