Loving!


A new weekly feature to help make Mondays less monochrome. 'Loving' because well... yes! I'm loving all the bits that I'll be sharing with you, but it's also what the Brit and I shout into the phone before hanging up or as we walk out the door. Alright enough sap. First of all I have to say I'm such a sucker for men's fashion. Clean lines, tailored perfection and really no fuss fashion is so inspiring to me. These Fall / Winter '11 looks from Rodarte for Opening Ceremony are as good as it gets from head to toe. Finally, I was lucky enough to catch Montreal artist {but raised in Vancouver!} Claire Boucher a.k.a Grimes over the weekend and it was probably one of the best shows I've seen in ages. Watching this one-woman performance is like observing one of those Hindu goddesses with multiple arms as she rapidly hits keys, fiddles with pitch and picks up the mic to add vocals. If you ever hear she'll be playing your town, GO, trust me. This unofficial video for her song 'Vanessa' by the talented editor David Dean Burkhart is pretty amazing. It features random scenes from the 1960s film "Alphaville", starring Anna Karina and whole slew of other retro babes... paired with Grimes' track, well... Loving!
