Late last week my company had its summer social at the Leaside Lawn Bowling Club. I wasn’t sure how much fun it would actually be, but it turned out to be unreal! We all dressed up in white, had a few drinks, and learned the basics. Basically curling, but for the summer – I’m definitely going to be joining a club when I retire.

As Fall is fast approaching, we are getting giddy with excitement to dust off our favourite denim, boots and cutie blazers. No doubt our warebrodes will need a few new pieces to keep us updated on all the trends and we are excited to check out two collections that are set to release this fall for Target and H&M. As we are huge supporters of affordable, fashionable clothing, these companies have partnered up with two heavy hitters in the industry to design some seriously wicked clothing, at prices that young hooligans (such as ourselves) can justifilably purchase without serious remorse.
1. (See picture above) The very talented French designer Isabel Marant collection for H&M is set to release November 14th worldwide. I imagine it will sell out very quickly as her boho-chic style is so effortless and elegant and big on attitude. Very excited to get my hands on something, maybe even the silky slip dress above… fingers crossed.
2. Second is Philip Lim’s line for Target. This line is available to view online however the merchandise is not for sale until September 15th. These pieces are clean, simple and PERFECT for work. The clothes are idiot proof because they were made with such a small colour pallet, that everything actually goes with everything. Loving the colour blocking look below and this emerald green is super sassy. Definitely worth checking out!
50 years ago today, MLK rocked the world with his dream of equality and propelled a movement of acceptance and a challenge to live without discrimination. IRV supports this movement and will be freinds with anyone who does too.
I can’t get enough of female indie singers these days. This song has an awesome vibe, and the video has a good dose of weird which I love. Happy listening IRVers!
Its Tuesday and that calls for some tunes. We stubbled upon this remix while listening to some Sunday Girl stuff and we la-la-la-love it! Florian Paetzold does a killer job making this into one extremely moss track that will be on repeat for the better half of our morning.
Apartment hunting can work up quite an appetite so IRV stopped over at The Fish Shop on College for a quick bite and the grilled fish truly is everything its cracked up to be. We both were feaning a wholesome salad so we ordered a bed of greens topped with the fish of the day which was grouper. It was so tasty and perfectly seasoned and was definitely great value for its $11 price point. This shop is fresh fresh fresh and a perfect place to pick up dinner on the way home from a long day of work when you want something nutricious that doesn’t sacrifice taste. Skip it for date night as there are only a few picnic tables outside for sitting… unless you’re grabbing something quick on your way for an stroll in Bellwoods park.
