Dancing On The Ceiling

Every time we check our Facebook homepages it seems everyone is getting married.  How are we supposed to keep up with a new party dress for each one?
The Goal: find multiple budget friendly dresses
Where: Off the top of my head I always recommend checking FCUK, Mendocino on Bloor, Zara, Winners, and Cors Boutique on Queen West.  Cors sells dresses by the likes of Catherine Malandrino, BCBG, Nicole Miller, and Betsey Johnston for a fraction of what they’re supposed to cost.  I’m not sure how, but I don’t ask questions.  I try on, I like, I buy.
The dress I’m wearing here came from Winners on Bloor for just $60.  I wore it to my cousin’s wedding and got quite a few compliments on it.  I like the fun zipper detailing and the way it bounces and moves when I walk.
Tip of the day: always be on the look out for great party dresses even if you don’t have an event coming up.  Another invite is bound to land in your mailbox soon.  And if not, throw a fancy dress party.  Just be sure to invite us!  JD

PS – excuse the band-aid on my leg…I forgot it was there.

Night With The Boys

Last Thursday night, Julie and I made our way over to Lifford Wine Agency’s Boys Night Out – a major fundraising event in support of prostate cancer research.  Boys Night Out offers tastings from some of Toronto’s best restaurants as well as some of the best wines on the market.  We were there for work related purposes but would recommend attending next years event.  By “recommend” I mean “ladies get out there”!  The ratio of men to women was probably 15:1. My dress is Rachel Rachel Roy.  I purchased at this event which The Bay had back in March –  I could not resist the colour.  Patent gladiators are from Aldo and purse is Marc by Marc Jacobs.  CM
