Event LOVE: Christian Boutique V.I.P. Cocktail Reception

Last week a number of us joined long-standing Toronto luxury retailer Christian Boutique for a private in-store V.I.P. cocktail event. I got to chat with Nello (the owner), as well as meet a number of awesome people while I sipped on champagne and drooled (as well as oohed and aahed) over all the pretty clothing and accessories.

I feel like this looks just like me ^_^

I think her art is Harajuku cute with a mix between French Fafi cuties and Kawaii Japanese Gyaru girls. When I launch my makeup line, I’d hire Jess to do all the campaigns!  My wish for Jess. 1> for her amazing success with her art!  2> do a collabo with some beauty brand 3> get on Pinterest and have cookies and cupcakes made of her art 4> stuffed animals and iPhone cases! 5> become the next tokidoki.

Sooooo as I went through her illustrations, I felt this uncanny feeling of familiarity… When my friends tell me I look like a cartoon, I never realized that it was true. Thanks JessMindful for confirming my true identity. I am actually a cartoon!
