today i have prom hair... or at least that's what i call it... basically it refers to your leftover hair the morning after an event (i.e., wedding, fundraiser, prom).. if you're lazy like me, this hair usually sticks around for at least another 12 hours after the initial event... yes, i realize that's gross... but its kind of nice to wake up and look like you've just breezed in from the salon... any previous frizz our excessive body has been tamed by your pillow and those tight Curly Sue ringlets have calmed into soft waves... come on, lets take a moment to savour this effortlessness.. (or at least pretend that you look as good as i made you sound..)
yesterday i watched yet another friend walk down the isle... the more weddings i attend the more confused i feel about marriage and weddings... i mean, i've been in a long term relationship for over 5 years.. and yet i have no great desire to donne the white dress and parlay down the aisle... maybe i wasn't born with that gene.. to be honest, the idea of so many people staring at me, cameras in hand, freaks the shit out of me... that aside, i'll admit that i genuinely "felt" something as she swished passed me in her layers of silk and tulle... regardless of the setting, there is something meaningful and almost epic in that moment... suddenly we aren't kids any more, dreaming about "growing up".. we are there in living colour...

the rest of the wedding was actually a lot of fun... aside from the genius post-ceremony kosher hot dogs and phad thai.. the amazing George St. Kitt's Orchestra rocked the house better than a Bon Jovi concert (honest).. had it not been Sunday, they would have had to drag me from the dance floor by my Comme Il Faut tango shoes..

for quite some time now i've been trying to find the perfect "every day" necklace... something that felt like "me", whatever that means... and could be worn with pretty much anything..  this weekend i was wandering around the city on one of the most beautiful saturdays in a LONG time, and wandered right into this necklace... not usually one to seriously peruse the jewellery cabinet at jonathan + olivia, knowing my wallet and pamela love aren't exactly "besties", I was enticed when i saw a sign reading 50% off!!

it gets better.... peering into the bottom shelf i spotted this unique piece by german designer sabrina dehoff ... the very helpful stylist informed me that dehoff's work is, not surprising, exclusively carried at j+o in canada... it was perfect! a sterling silver bear claw with a claw detail and chain dipped in 14K gold.. it perfectly combined my love of mixed metals, delicate detailing and canadiana... as if my luck couldn't get better, my sweet boyfriend decided that he would treat me to this special find... if only every day was this sweet..

a royal fairytale...

 like many others, I said I wasn't going to watch the Royal wedding... but like a train wreck, I couldn't tear my eyes away on April 29th... despite the 6 hours of wedding footage and then all the images flying around twitter about "second dresses", i couldn't and still can't get enough... yes, it was everything a royal wedding should have been... elegance, class with a touch of tradition and just the right amount of spectacle...
