This Is Not A Toy

This week I went to the exhibit "This is Not a Toy" on now at the Design Exchange in Toronto. It presents the toy as a contemporary artistic expression. The guest curator for the exhibit is Pharrell Williams. The show consists of designer toys, sculptures and artwork by artists such as Takashi Murakami and works from the personal collection of Williams. I really enjoyed the exhibit. The layout, music and colours created a dream-like world exploring pop culture and design. It was a lot of fun to pull out the camera and snap some shots of the quirky and colourful works. A fun way to spend the afternoon! 
Hope your week is going well. Have a great Thursday!

2 For 2

Hello! Hope you had a good weekend. Canada had a great weekend at the Olympics. 
We are 2 for 2 with gold for both women's and men's hockey!
 Great to see the Canadian pride and support for our awesome athletes. 
Go Canada!! 
I am loving this sweater from Wilfred. The cut and fabric make for a versatile addition to my wardrobe. 
I will definitely be sporting this number on the blog again.  
The sun came out a bit this weekend which was pleasant. Have a great Monday.

Home Life

This past weekend I went home to my parents' for Family Day. 
They have a lot of snow which makes for awful driving conditions but very pretty photos.
It felt like spring here in Toronto yesterday! I hope that keeps up.
Wishing you a good Thursday.

Balenciaga at Holt Renfrew

This past weekend there was a Balenciaga Trunk Show at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St. in Toronto. I decided to go and take a sneak peak and snap a few pics. It was a beautiful display of exclusive dresses from the house of Balenciaga. Each gown has been worn by a celebrity including Kate Moss and Cate Blanchett. Gorgeous colours, fabrics and drapery. The mini exhibit presented the romanticism and beauty inherent in Balenciaga design. There was a rack of garments available for purchase. A tad out of my price range for a dress but fun to escape reality for a bit and browse.     
Hope you had a nice weekend. I am fortunate to have a couple days off, nice to relax and spend time with family. Have a great Monday! Happy Family Day!

Code Blue

So excited to show you my new sweater! I was eyeing this bad boy back in the fall when it came out at Aritzia but it was a tad over my budget. 
I went to Aritzia this past weekend to check out their sale and (gasp) there was my sweater hidden in the racks. Last one and in my size AND 
on a fantastic sale. I grabbed it and knew I was going to get it before stepping into the fitting room. I love the colour, the fabric and structured fit. 
Plus how cool are those zippers in the front. This detail reminds me of the 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater with the exposed zipper on the side. 
This purchase totally made my weekend.
Have a great Wednesday! 
Sweater: Babaton from Aritzia | Pants: Club Monaco | Boots: Call It Spring

Under the Sea

Last week I went to Ripley's Aquarium here in Toronto. It is a beautiful place, as you can see from these images I snapped! There is a walkway with a see-through dome covering where sharks swim above you! It is quite amazing. Beautiful colours throughout the place. A great escape from the cold and snow outside. Hope you had a good weekend. Have a good day!
