The Clothing Show is host to over 300 booths of new local designers, retailers, jewellery, accessories, vintage, and eco-friendly clothing all under one roof. Art gallery and runway fashion shows add to the mix.

Lipgloss and Black was there from May 14-16 for the Spring 2010 edition of Toronto's coolest independent clothing event! Our items were for sale in the 'Periwinkle Boutique' booth and we participated in the 3 runway shows on Friday and Saturday.

We were so happy with our gorgeous models and how beautifully they were styled! I think the best part was sitting right in the audience and experiencing how everyone would react to each design. It all seemed to be pretty positive, so we were happy :). On top of that, when we headed backstage to see our models, they all raved about how much they loved our pieces! Total sweethearts. Our first big runway experience was so awesome & we're already seeing lots of amazing photos.

Check out the video of our final show:

I was just reminded by a friendly anonymous user that we've completely neglected to blog here for a solid two or three months, hahaha. Looks like creating theme days like tutorial tuesday really didn't force us to continue blogging at all!

We've since started a tumblr & it's actually REALLY addictive and fun to have one. It's sort of a mix between tweeting and blogging I guess... or the best elements of both. Check ours out & follow us if you have one! http://lipglossblack.tumblr.com/

or if you're looking for the most consistent updates, check out our facebook fanpage: http://www.facebook.com/lipglossandblack (I just created a welcome landing page & it looks so cute :) )

If you haven't watched this yet, it's just a video interview we had done in November & was released in January! I was a bit nervous & have the most ridiculous speaking voice but I think otherwise it turned out quite well! Skip to the 2min mark to see our segment :)

So Tuesday was our interview with a local e-show that is set to launch in January. We just pumped out some new stuff and had some friends model in a small runway show that was filmed in a flower shop in Hamilton :) The interview went alright, but I think we're pretty happy with how our outfits looked. All of the photos were taken by my beautiful friend, Jacqueline! (Unless she's in the photo... in which case, it was just taken with her camera ;) ) ♥

walk, walk fashion baby. work it, i'm a free bitch babyCollapse )
Don't forget to visit Periwinkle Boutique in Bloor West Village to check out some of these pieces, starting this Saturday! We're also marking down a ton of stuff to clear out old stock... just in time for some Christmas shopping :)

Yeah yeah, two weeks in a row with no tutorials. Laaaaaame.

We've been keeping busy sewing a new batch of things for our shop & to take into Periwinkle.

Tonight Sam & I had an interview with an online show called Monkeybiz that's premiering in January. We prepped a bunch of clothes, gathered some hot friends had a mini fashion show for the camera & got interviewed! They asked that they just talk to one of us so I did the talking on behalf of us... UGHHHH. I think when I talk to anyone, I can hold a conversation for hours but I clam up at the sight of a camera :( . HOPEFULLY I don't seem like an idiot or a douche! They didn't even ask me difficult questions but I stumbled over my words a bit... We'll see how the editing goes, haha.

Our friends looked amazing modeling our winter stuff though! Lots of leggings & hoodies & a couple dresses... Well post some photos when I get them from my friend. & In January when the episode comes out, I'll definitely post it so you guys can hear my horrible voice. haha

Today when I was driving home, I set up my GPS to direct me along this familiar route, just for kicksies. I have no idea HOW I set it up, I mean, I just chose my home address, but it literally told me EVERYTHING opposite of where I wanted to go.

It tried to get me to get off the highway at EVERY exit that came along. But instead of going right to where the exit was, it told me to go left. Every time I hit a fork & had to go left, it'd tell me to go right. It told me to u-turn on the Gardiner. THAT IS 100% THE OPPOSITE. I just don't get it because just the British lady voice was telling me to do all that & the green line & arrow was right. Imagine if I was going somewhere I didn't know the directions to? I would have ended up in like Nunavut.

Anyways, I worked my first shift at Periwinkle boutique today & it was tons of fun :)
If you're in the Toronto area, you can now not only visit my clothes but visit ME on Saturday afternoons :) WOO!
