Midday Musings

In need of a little midday distraction? Well just like Katie’s divorce lawyer, I’m here to save the day! Behold, midday musings in a nutshell.

American Apparel, more vintage than ever
Thankfully, American Apparel is not in the news for the usual underage teen advertising issue. Quite the contrary in fact. Meet Jacky, a grey-haired granny with great style and youthful beauty. Discovered on the streets of NYC, she’s the newest face of AA’s Basics campaign, and while I’m not a fan of the brand per se, I do enjoy this concept.

Toronto Foodie, on a budget?
This Friday, July 6, marks the beginning of Summerlicious, the fabulous two-week event that allows the regular joe or jane to dine at the city’s finest restaurants, with a fixed menu and affordable price. If you’ve been saving up for a dreamy meal at the latest hotspot, take advantage of this genius event and be sure to make a reservation! Toronto Life has compiled a list of best bets from the 181 participating restaurants.

Closet Confidential
If you’re feeling really confident about your closet right now, I trust that what I’m about to show you will reverse that feeling entirely. Whitney Port’s closet. Need I say more?

Diane Fever
The Chanel Fall 2012 Couture show took place in Paris yesterday, and if we’ve learned anything from past seasons, all anyone wants to know is…what did Diane Kruger wear?
The answer, below.

Five planks of wood, a few nails and some paint – Ta da!

Craft-tastic
Sometimes those summer paychecks deserve only to be spent on weekend getaways, afternoon drinks and nights on the town – but our homes need some loving too! Enter the do-it-yourself fad. If you’re looking to release your crafty side this weekend, browse the best DIY sites on the web for inspiration:
