“The home should be the treasure chest of living.” - Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris
Home. It’s the end and start of your day, it’s where you keep your most prized possessions, you build a life in your home and have a strong bond with it.
When it comes to creating a space for a home in Toronto, a lot of people have different definitions of what that is. Homes developed in Toronto are becoming more vertical and residents are sacrificing their location to have more space.
A home should give you all the treasures of living: amenities, location, character and a neighbourhood to grow in. The Perry Condominiums by Mansouri Living aims to bring all those treasures home to you.
Standing 11-floors high, The Perry’s mission to it’s customers, and potential buyers, is to bring to Toronto a ‘Luxury as Standard’ lifestyle. But how does a development …
A name that comes synonymous with luxury is the legendary Italian born Salvatore Ferragamo. Born into a family of 14, a young Salvatore discovered his passion for shoes at the tender age of nine, eventually making his way to Naples to study the craft of shoemaking. After a year of studies he returned home to open a tiny shop in his parent’s home. He ended up immigrating to Boston a few years later, where one of his brothers was working in a cowboy boot factory. This was when Salvatore would convince his brothers to move to California, where he opened up a shop for repair and made to measure shoes. Shortly after opening, major celebrities began taking notice and the rest is history.
His creative visions and scientific approach to shoes spawned major fashion innovations such as the wedge and cage …
Jewellery designer David Yurman and wife Sybil have certainly come a long way from their bohemian routes but have definitely managed to keep their heritage strong. With items like the iconic cable bracelet and the buckle collection, it’s no wonder why David Yurman products are in such high demand!
The new Yorkdale store will be the brands first stand-alone Canadian location and will offer the full line of David Yurman products. This will include his classic collection of male watches, an idea that was sprouted from collaboration with his son Evan. The collection is composed of a Chronograph, a Moon Phase option and Three Hand features. Each option includes signature ‘cable design’ detailing on the outside of the watch case – exemplary of the detail that the brand is known so well for.
Especially of note, their delicious fragrances, classically shaped sunglasses …
Last night we attended the GUESS launch party for their new Festival Collection, bringing back nostalgic designs and pairing it with 2013 spring fashion trends. The event was at their high-ceilinged, two-storey GUESS store on Queen Street West in Toronto.
Approaching the glass branded GUESS building on busy Queen Street West, the transparent doors opened to a wide and tall space with white coloured walls and floors refocused your eyes to look towards the sky-patterned backgrounds and brightly coloured clothing. We were greeted and grabbed the first GUESS branded lemonade we could find. Have to stay hydrated, there was a lot of mingling to do.
The event brought a different, fashionable and colour-wearing crowd compared to the last GC Smart Luxury Event from last week. You could find yourself talking fashion and conversing with everyone from magazine editors, Shoe and Bag …
That one beautiful day where you and your better half say, ‘I do’ in front of your close loved ones. That one day that maybe you or your loved one plans out for years before, all up to that moment that you will never forget for the rest of your life.
A wedding is an all-out decorative event that has to be up to a standard of perfection. The ‘big day’ has the opinions, help and planning of many experts and family members to make sure the groom and bride get the perfect day and a great start to their lives together.
To plan such a big event, you need a venue to match the level of detail that you and your family expect, and for that level of treatment, you need the Trump.
The Trump Toronto had their Trump Wedding Showcase on …
Last night we went to Muzik in Toronto to experience the new Grey Goose Lounge. The event seemed completely opposite than the Grey Goose Cherry Noir event, but the different vibe was a nice change!
Muzik is a massive. The venue was able to fit more than enough people and brought lots of different personalities from the world of television, blogging, fashion, and entertainment.
The event started at 6pm with people coming later after probably ditching their after-work attire. For the people who just had time to change clothes, Grey Goose and Muzik had a hair styling salon situated from one of the bars that made sure everyone going into the salon looked great coming out.
The beautiful mix of long, draping curtains from the ceiling and stacked bottles of Grey Goose brought style to specific areas, while attendees lounged on bright white (comfortable) …

Last night we attended Cocktail Couture at Crown Lounge in Toronto, hosted by Toronto Business Casual. The Cocktail Couture event is a bi-annual event that brings forth stylish people to mingle in very approachable way.
The venue was great. The open concept provided a lot of room for great conversations, and it was easy to move from social circle to social circle. The two-tiered couches provided a nice bandstand feel, especially for the main event.

2012 Fall/Winter Collection
Porsche Design has released their latest fall and winter collections for both men and women, and the collection is looking great. Some of the pieces are timeless, some of the pieces are even better than their predecessors and others are brand new to the store and have limited inventory, so you are almost guaranteed not to be caught in the same outfit as someone else.
What Porsche Design does really, really well, is incorporating style and functionality to their collections. Their winter jackets are light in weight but when you put them on, you instantly know that you will definitely keep warm in that coat. The goatskin leather is smooth, light, nice-to-touch, and makes you not want to take the jacket off.
