E.O.F. SPRING 2018 UPDATE!

Greetings friends and followers!

It’s been a while since we’ve posted on here, so we thought we owed something to the gods of the internet! I can’t believe its been almost 7 years of us having this blog, and all the incredible things it has led us to, we couldn’t even have imagined on that fateful night we created it.

These incredible things, however, lead us to be very busy and it makes it hard to get time to create the content we know you love! So, here a little catch-up with everything we have been up to!

Spring always seems to be a busy time for us, and we have been up to some fun things. Currently we are creating a collection for one of our city’s biggest fashion events, Glamour in the Hammer. It is a wonderful event that helps support the incredible philanthropic efforts of the Good Shepherd and promoting the long history of giving they have done for those in need.

If you are in the area, tickets are still available, and are going fast! Ticket includes a fabulous fashion show featuring the city’s top designers, as well as drinks and eats from the city’s top restaurants. Definitely not to be missed. {click here for tickets}

This year, our collection +WUTHERING HEIGHTS+ hopes to bring a romantic edge to the grunge aesthetic inspired by the ghostly mood of the English moors, combining vintage fabrics and street chic style for many new one-of-a-kind pieces to add to the many creations we have made over the past {click here to see them}.

As well, as preparing for that, we are also embarking on a voyage to the 1980s with our costume design for Hamilton Theatre Inc.’sThe Wedding Singer” which has been chalk full of its own challenges, but insanely fun to sort through weird and wild 80s party fashions. The silhouettes and details of that time period are just over-the-top, and that of course, we absolutely love! Again if you are in the area, {click here} to get tickets for a wickedly funny show! Show runs May 11 – May 26.

Last but not least, we are fresh from our annual collaboration with The Vintage Marketplace, which is our city’s biggest vintage shopping event. Whilst we were berated by a historical ice storm, the event was still a success with hundreds of people making it out to shop from a myriad of local vintage vendors, with many new faces, which is always great to see our little community growing in that respect.

On top of our booth, which we were very proud of in the end, we also had the honor of producing some entertainment for the weekend. What we came up with, we never could’ve foreseen, but it all seemed to make so much sense, and was a wild way to shake up our usual fashion show segment.

Instead of a retrospective fashion show, we created the VMP DRAG FASHION FLAUNT ft. Queen Costia Sterling and Sapphyre Poison. If only you could be there to see how fantastic this show was (or maybe you were, if so, leave a comment), the Queens delivered vintage inspired numbers that ranged from Rosemary Clooney, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, and even a number from the iconic musical CHICAGO.

The most magical moment had to be when the many children who had come to the show gathered to watch the Queens, and the wonderful smiles on their faces as they watched the magic. Definitely a show for the books.

So, as you can see, we have been swamped with projects, but promise to get back more in the swing of posting on here. We have so many fabulous stories on the back burner that are just waiting to see the light of day, so definitely stay tuned…

If you have been missing us, be sure to follow us on INSTAGRAM, TWITTER, and FACEBOOK to stay up to date, and see what we are up to!

SNAPSHOTS FROM THE VINTAGE MARKETPLACE 2015

This year’s Vintage Marketplace was an exciting weekend for us, and we still can’t seem to shake it!

We wanted to give an opportunity to our friends and fans who couldn’t make it to the event (held this year at the very vintage Hamilton Convention Centre) to see what we were up to with some photos we took over those eventful two days where style and history collided! It truly was a meeting of the {PAST}, {PRESENT}, and {FUTURE}, and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!!!

First off, hats off to the team at VMP for everything they did to make sure our experience was the best it could be. Shout out to Lacey Battaglio who always did everything she could to help, and keep strains and stresses to a minimum. Also to the fabulous DJ Donna Lovejoy who provided her signature spin to many a vintage classic that helped give us the pep in our step after a dubiously long Saturday night!!!

Luckily for us, we always surround ourselves with the best people, and our team of vintage and style aficionados really came together to create what could only be described as a wildly dynamic and captivating booth that meshed together all of our areas of expertise and individual styles (and in record time, I might add)!

Another highlight of the Vintage Marketplace was the awesome vintage fashion show produced by Whitney McMeekin of Girl on the Wing which showcased looks from her own collection, as well as our friends at New Old’s, Love in the Afternoon, Vintage Soul Geek (!!!), and of course, yours truly! The looks showed the wild variety of vintage styles available in the city, and the multitude of looks that look as fresh today as they ever did.

Best of all, we got a sneak peak at the {FUTURE} of fashion with an encore catwalk from three fresh new faces who just couldn’t stop at the opportunity to soak in the limelight!

Overall, a successful and fun weekend spent amongst friends and plenty of inspiration for next year!!!

Until next time,
