Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

High Fashion: Canadian Style.

While I was sitting on the couch yesterday stuffing envelopes for my friend’s job (BECAUSE I’M SUCH A GOOD PAL/have absolutely nothing to do all day) I decided to watch Canada’s E! channel.

At home (Chicagoland) I’m what you would refer to as an “E! enthusiast.” I know every show on that channel and have seen every episode of those shows at least 5 times. It gets to the point where I have memorized episodes and mouth what everyone on the show is saying. Its a gift.

Well, Canadian E! is a little different from the E! I know and love. They still play stuff from the regular E! channel, but they have Canadian stuff mixed in too. Most of it is backstage at fashion shows (which is awesome) but they also have a lot of coverage of celebs who are in Canada– basically no one except the Biebs, really.

The other day they had coverage from Toronto Fashion Week. It seemed like an oxymoron to me. I know I have said this before, but I do not find Canada stylish in the least. Only because no one makes an effort. And because everyone’s Canadian.  I was kind of surprised that top designers were willing to have their designs on parade in Canada. Who would buy them? Unless they were offering a 2012 spring line of yoga pants, I doubt anyone here would be interested. But I suppose different cities have different styles. Maybe Toronto is super chic and I’m missing out on all the fun over here on the west coast. I doubt it though.

One woman that they interviewed (I didn’t get her name…because I didn’t care) said something along the lines of, “Yeah it’s great here in Toronto. The tents look just like ones in Mexico City Fashion Week–where I just came from.” Ummmm Toronto, you need to step it up a notch if you look the same as Mexico City’s Fash Week. I didn’t even know Mexico City was allowed to have one.

Also, speaking of fashion week–this is very unrelated, but its basically my favorite thing right now.

    Of course I can’t look at that obnoxious toddler and think…Gosh…I could do that…Anyone can do that…seriously! This Cecelia chick is so inspirational! She blows Oprah out of the water…pass the barf bucket…

  2. As a bloke these fashion week show thingies utterly baffle me. It’s always full of people wearing things that no-one will ever wear anyway. It makes my logical brain hurt.

    Erm, I have also only just realised that Lily’s posting avatar is of the Canadian flag.

    • I can see how you wouldn’t enjoy a week of fashion, Michael. Also, I will change my avatar soon…I’m glad the Canadian flag made you uneasy though. Goal achieved.

      • Lisa says:

        Why is that little thing called an avatar? Who decided to name it that? I can’t keep up with the lingo and it scares me.

      • Well an avatar is something that is a representation of a person or a deity. The picture represents you so it is called an avatar.

        You could say that Jesus was an avatar of God.

      • Hahaha I would never have thought of calling Jesus an avatar. Do you think that really applies since Jesus was an actual person whereas most avatars, like you said, are just representations?

      • At risk of kicking off an entirely different debate, I guess it would depend on whether you thought Jesus was real or not.

        According to a very brief glance at Wikipedia, avatars are more of a Hindu thing. Mind you I did come across avatars and stuff back when I used to play the Dungeons and Dragons board game.

      • Haha wise choice. I’m the worst debater ever–I always end up in tears. I can see how avatars would play more of a role in Hinduism–maybe because they have more characters that are in nature and stuff like that? Eh, I don’t know. Dungeons and Dragons is cool though.

    • Most likely.

      By the way your posting name isn’t linked to your blog so you are missing out on visitors. Easily fixed:

      • I know, I got the same feeling, but decided to blame you: I can’t help it that you respond to every blog around!
        No seriously, I click on the links on other blogs, like yours, and then find out that you have already commented. It’s like these blogs are one big group of which the bloggers all respond to each other and you are always the one right before us.
        So in fact, yes we are following you.
