Fashion inspiration can come in so many forms. This evening, a few friends and I caught Dior and I  at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema and it was love! I just wanted to walk into the screen and inhabit the beautiful, haute couture world of the house of Christian Dior. I highly recommend the documentary, which runs till July 15; it’s lush, gorgeous, and warm, with surprisingly touching moments of humanity.

Some people like to look to other eras for their style inspiration. If you’re into the pin up and rockabilly look, I’d suggest heading down to the opening party for the photography exhibition All Hopped Up! A Celebration of Rockabilly & Hot Rod CultureLocal photographer Liisa Morton travelled North America, capturing images of the vintage style seen at rockabilly weekenders. The exhibition runs till June 24, so put on your best red lipstick, pin curl your hair, and get down to the Black Cat Gallery!

Saturday also marks the first day of November (times flies!), so here are my top three events for the upcoming month: Continue reading
