MiMi+You

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

The 60th Annual Emmy Awards are getting a taste of Canada’s fashion talent! This year’s VIP Swag Bags will feature necklaces by Canadian jewelry makers Mitra and Mina Mortazavi. Mimi+You’s Hollywood inspiration for these pieces came from fashionista Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City, and the classic children’s story Charlotte’s Web.
The famous inspirations that got them to the Emmys:

· Charlotte’s Crochet: Inspired by the intricate detail of crochet work done by the sisters’ mother, each piece is hand crafted and made of 100% Prima cotton imported from Peru. The piece was third in a trilogy of necklaces inspired by Charlotte’s Web.

· Carrie Pearls: Inspired by the way Carrie Bradshaw wore pearls to adorn any outfit in the Sex and the City movie, the piece strands together glass pearls which can be worn either full length (1920’s flapper style) or as a chocker. These pearls can be dressed up or down with an Audrey Hepburn inspired “little black dress” or a simple pair of jeans and a T-shirt.

F987 b MiMi+You
Sold at high-end retailers in both Toronto and California, Mimi+You are quickly building a reputation among the fashionable elite. Canadian A-listers Nelly Furtado, July Black, and Chantal Kreviazuk all love and wear the one-of-a-kind creations. With multiple colour combinations, each piece is hand-crafted and made from materials such as porcelain, leather, shell, and metal.

Mimi+You collections include: 1920s, Russian Royalty, Nu Vintage, Made-To-Wear, and Signature Collection. For more information on the brand, connect to: www.mimiandu.com.

Fashion forward and trendy tea shop is kicks any mocha frappachino’s butt in just 3 mins of steeping. Check out DAVIDsTEA on Queen St W just a sweep east of Spadina. Yum yum, $2 a pop – i recommend the Creme Caramel Rooibos Tea
With Romantic stories and quirky names – plenty of time to steep, stir, sip and FALL in love. This is an excerpt from the Zing Me Tea

In the mood for love
What happens when you blend Chinese black tea with ginger bits and lush pieces of peach and apricot? An instant feeling of well-being. Aromatherapy claims that peaches can brighten your outlook, and ginger has long been known as a zesty stimulant that perks you up. Apricots are just plain delicious. Drink it hot or cold, for a truly refreshing Chinese tea experience.
