Day 3: Taxi Cab & Maroon Lipstick

>>Sperry Top-Sider A/O 2-Eye Boat Shoe in Sahara<<<

First time in a taxi in downtown Toronto. Nothing like waving down one in New York City, but I guess calling in advance would save me the trouble of 1. embarrassment, and 2. actually finding one outside of the building. So why was I getting into a taxi, you may ask? I was running to get some designer pieces that the companies were waiting for to ship back once the photoshoot was done. So, I didn't get to help out in the photoshoot, but at least I got a sneak peak at some of the looks on models and see the set. Apparently, many of the lofts in Toronto are used as studios, and this one in particular fit the credentials perfectly: 14 ft ceilings, extremely quiet hallways, and urban-style design.

The one look I saw, the model wore a deep violet/maroon coloured lipstick. She looked hot no mattter what pose she made. Her hip bones jutted out. I guess that's the way they are when you're super skinny.

The rest of the day I handled the work of 3 on my own. I made it through and did my first style notes. I saw some high-end shoes -- if you're looking for some Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, and Ralph Lauren (I never knew Ralph Lauren had a shoeline) look no further than Davids for men & women.

I met up with my cousin after work and walked down Queen Street West. We went for sushi @ Sushi Queen down the street and walked along there to check out some awesome shoe stores. There was a neat store that had a tote bag that could change into like 6 different "modes". I think it was one sale...tempted to buy.. maybe I should get a parttime job? OH! And, we saw Birkenstocks on sale for $60 - the single strap style and $75 for the thong style. A steal, I must say! They have this cool shop called Little Burgundy and Get Outside - some fresh stuff to check out. Found a pair of Sperry Top Slider Classics I'm sort of in love with:

The leather looks hard, but it's actually really soft, i.e. scrunchable. Good thing I wasn't in the mood to shop.

More to add later.
