A couple of weeks ago, Style Me Pretty Canada featured
one of our inspiration shoots. The feature appeared on August 24th, three days after a devastating tornado ripped through the village of Benmiller, where we live, and our closest town of Goderich, Ontario where we shop, bank, hang out with friends in coffee shops, attend the farmers market and watch parades. The days following are a blur to me. All my family and our homes were fine but so many friends lost their homes or had severe damage to their businesses. One of our properties in Goderich was also damaged. As of today at 1 p.m., our downtown core will open again. It has almost been 3 weeks. Many businesses are still closed and will not re-open for some time but there is something significant about our town square opening again. We are one step closer to the light at the end of the tunnel.
So my apologies to my readers, I haven't been keeping up. I'll try better.
In the meantime, I would like show you all the details from our shoot. It was a HUGE shoot - all day, with lots of vendors and lots of wardrobe changes and lots of scenes to style.
BUT, today in celebration of last night's opening of the Toronto International Film Fest, I thought I would start with the fabulous wardrobe from the shoot. I expect there will be a few star sightings at Cabaret Vintage
over the next couple of weeks. So if you are 'festing' stop by.
O.k. I can't help myself. I love Tao and the gorgeous clothes he has in the shop! Plus he is an absolute gem to work. I am starting off with the dress that had me drooling. The one that MUST land in my closet. The ONE I NEED!
I adore this pink frock. Take a look. It would be perfect for a summer party!
