Who woulda known Loblaw's could be so chic??
Enter Joe Fresh, a stylish and affordable clothing and accessories line for the entire fam.
Officially launched in 2009 as a beauty and cosmetics line, the brand has seriously evolved into a powerhouse of apparel, cosmetics, home decor and probably on it's way to more. Joe Fresh is officially stretching to our American counterparts with stores opening in New York, New Jersey and Long Island this Fall.
You can also catch them at LG Fashion Week which runs October 17-21st. I'm looking forward to their show because I missed them earlier this year at Fashion Week.
I took some shots of their girls wear today while grocery shopping lol. My daughter is so keen on her own personal style so here are some of our picks:
Holla! $29 for these cute little motorcycle boots. Synthetic material obviously...she'll probably mash them up in 2 weeks time anyhow lol.

To be FREE. Free from everything that binds us down, robs us of who we are and takes away what chances we have in life.
[free-them] is an organization of dedicated and passionate people, founded with the belief and heart to fight global human trafficking and abolish the modern day slave trade.
You'd think stuff like this doesn't exist in Canada but the statistics are actually pretty scary. The media also doesn't cover everything and it's almost like it's taboo to talk about these things or even address some of these issues. It's also so glamourized on TV and in movies. Looking for a great time? "Ya man let's head over to the nudie bar and watch some pussy and have some drinks!" Everyone is guilty in some way shape or form of somehow funding these sick organizations. Even watching porn. Hit up the strip club, yep. Who knows what happens behind closed doors. There's rhyme and reason for everything.
If you're interested in getting involved with [free-them] or educating yourself on this global issue, you can visit their www.freethem.ca and www.forfreedomsake.ca . They are also still accepting donations until October!
Check out some images below of their 2nd annual Freedom Walk 2011 that I attended on September 18th. It was such a powerful feeling to see such a massive turn out of supporters unified for this cause. The organizers themselves were so overwhelmed with the response that more Metro cops were needed to help chaperone the event.
A HUGE SHOUT OUT AND THANKS TO THOSE WHO PLEDGED ME! I will always have your backs!
Location: 77 Adelaide St W, Downtown Toronto

Ever since I heard her cover of Kudi's "Pursuit of Happiness", she's been haunting my dreams and has successfully planted the seed of her soul inside my head, ears and heart...
Lissie, as per Wikipedia, has her musically classified as country, folk, rock, but she's so much more than that. She's ethereal and intangible. Her voice give me chills and I'm not gonna lie, she makes me cry. She quite frankly almost brings me to orgasm by watching her perform and sing her fuckin heart out. I can feel her passion and her raw energy radiating through her music and if that's not supernatural talent, I don't know what is.

**Her band is also amazing. Check out her mate who's playing bass AND drums at the same time!

Originally I was supposed to be wearing this oversized dorky patterned bowtie that I have, but I couldn't find it so I had to substitute the look for my old skool rope chain. It completely changed the vibe of the outfit :( But I'm hoping you get the gist of the look I was going for...dorky college pro fresh!
I looks like something similar to this:
Oxford shirt: Wilfred
Shorts: Club Monaco
Shoes (unseen): Christian Louboutin
Accessories: Michael Kors watch, RetroSuperFuture frames, custom nameplate rope chain and bamboo earrings Nellies Custom Design Jewellers, SoHo beaded bracelets

I went to the 7FAM flagship store opening launch party at Yorkdale Mall yesterday and it was a sardine fest. It was so rammed with people you had to literally throw dem 'bows to get around. Aside from the lack of space though, it was great! A lot of familiar faces, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, tunes by DJ Vaneska, loads of denim and some truly spectacular artwork.
The soirée was hosted by Canadian-Somali supermodel Yasmin Warsame, which also featured a silent auction with all proceeds of the night solely dedicated and donated to The African Future, a charitable organization delivering food and medical services to the victims of drought in Somalia. Amazing!
The store itself also featured and will continue to showcase the Seven Senses which is a group exhibit of 7 Toronto based artists: Caitlin Cronenberg, Justin Broadbent, Elicser, Curtis Santiago, Phoebe Lo, Bryan Espiritu and Julie Moon. The show will continue to run from August 31st-September 8th.
Below are some pics of the event. You can catch the rest of them on my Facebook page.
