THE EYE OF FAITH 2018: FALL UPDATE !!!

Wow, this summer was a wild ride for us!!! From manning the Supercrawl Pop-Up Shop right in the heart of Downtown Hamilton, helping rep local fashion artists, as well as creating our most exciting collection to date, “The Visitors”,  using some flashy vintage fabrics we have accumulated over the years (pictures to be posted soon)!

But, as you know, there is no rest for the wicked and we have quite a few things simmering this Fall!

We were honoured to host a Spice Girls / 90s Karaoke at Toast Wine Bar in conjunction with the screening of “Spice World” for the AGH BMO World Film Festival. Of course, we continue our Karaoke Cabaret residency at The Casbah every second and fourth (October 23) Tuesday, and we have a very special Halloween karaoke on Oct 31 at the legendary Sous Bas! So if you are in Hamilton, ON, and need to let loose on All Hallow’s Eve, be sure to stop by!!!

Now, of course, we have some really cool fashion events coming up also. This Sunday (October 28), we will be participating in the Hamilton Vintage Community Pop-Up at The Spice Factory, with 40+ vendors, drinks, and loads of vintage shopping !!!

We can’t wait…we will have a unique assortment of vintage mens, vintage womens, and some of our one of a kind, handmade pieces made using vintage materials. We will be bringing some wicked pieces priced as low as $5, so don’t miss out!

Also, we have a very exciting fashion presentation for the Hamilton Film Festival at the Zoetic Theatre, where will be a presenting in a show inspired by “Darkness” – which couldn’t be more up our alley! Our looks will be showcased to film industry professionals who hopefully will take a liking to our designs!

After all, just a few years ago; Guillermo Del Toro filmed his Academy Award wining film “The Shape of Water” right here in our city, so you never know!!!

Always put your best foot forward, in life . . .  which leads us to our next project, which we will save for another post. A GRAND ANNOUNCEMENT . . . stay tuned!!!

So, apologies that we haven’t been able to sit down and share some of the cool vintage musings and memories we have been collecting in a while, but as you can see, our life has been pretty hectic, but rest assured, we will be getting back into the swing of things once the dust has settled.

Thank you for checking us out, and for those who have followed us for years, thank you so much for your support! It means EVERYTHING.

We just uploaded about 30 new pieces in our {SHOP} last week, so be sure to check those out and use code XIXIXI for 25% OFF.

Until next time,

Stunning “CARRIE” Trailer Finally Uncovered! Plus I Dare You To Call Carrie White . . .

Finally! The moment we have all been waiting for is here! After months have simply have to watch the excruciating teaser showing Carrie’s entire town burning to the ground showing a blood-drenched Chloe Moretz out of control pissed at being bully bait at her prom, we finally have a legit, sold, 100% certified trailer for the film that also stars Julianne Moore as Mrs. White – Carrie’s maniacal, fanatic, evangelical mother driven to hysterics by her daughter’s blossoming psychic powers. . .

It’s a relief to know that this film is going extra lengths to really respect both the 1976 original, starring Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie as the terrifying mother-daughter duo), but also the novel that started it all, and kick-started Stephen King’s career as the world’s most popular author. And this version seems to be the perfect synthesis between the past, present, and eventually future of “Carrie”.

The film is excitedly updated to today, taking a contemporary spin on the story, allowing the creative team to touch on very real topics of cyber bullying and harassment in teen culture today. It’s no surprise really, considering the film is helmed by world-class director Kimberly Pierce who previously led Hilary Swank and Chloe Sevigny to Oscar nominations (and Hilary the win) for the 1999 classic, “Boys Don’t Cry”.

When “Carrie” was released in 1976, it sealed the deal for Sissy Spacek, and there’s no questioning the fact that Chloe Moretz has now sealed the deal on her fate, as well. The film has been pushed back to a later release date of October 18, from its original March release date (damn it!), which could be a good sign that this film is in contention for some big award coverage, and at least a smash hit for Halloween – probably both, though. After all, Julianne Moore is one of those actresses that should have already won an Academy Award in her life – so it’s only a matter of time, and “Carrie” could be it.

Same goes for Chloe Grace Moretz, who might be young, but considering Jennifer Lawrence’s recent win at the Academy Awards for Best Actress at the age of 22 – the chances don’t seem that unlikely for a star as consistent and talented as the young Chloe Grace . At the very least, a nomination will most likely be awarded.

But until that fateful day, the film’s marketing team seems to have set up plenty of goodies to get your “Carrie” fix until that bright, shiny day. You can check out the film’s Official Site here for downloads and other stuff, and be sure to visit YOU WILL KNOW HER NAME , the film’s uber imaginative Tumblr site that harks back to the film’s epistolary novel roots.

And if that’s not enough for you, you can literally call Carrie!

That’s right. You can call Carrie White at her home, The White Residence at: 207-404-2604.  Sounds freaky, but it’s true! You can call at receive any one of three recorded messages. Try it out if you don’t believe us, or listen below . . .

Between this film, “Stoker, and “The Great Gatsby” coming out this May – 2013 is already adding up to a really exciting year for film, and films that are infusing the past with all the excitement and innovation of today!

Hope you’re excited! Don’t piss off Carrie!

Until next time,
