Online Shopping and GAP in Canada

When I heard that GAP was going to bring online shopping to Canada, I was excited.  Finally, I was able to purchase sizes that aren’t available in stores (namely XXSP from Banana Republic and petite sizes from Old Navy and GAP).   They also said that stores like Athleta and Piperlime would be available.   I was going […]

442 McAdam Goes Compact for Fall 2010

The first thing I noticed about 442 McAdam‘s Fall 2010 collection was its compact sized bags, very different from previous collections.  Though the 100% cowhide is still intact, the smaller size intrigued me as a petite person – though I have a few totes, I prefer smaller bags which are more in proportion for smaller people.  The […]

Smart, Sophisticated City Dwellers and Interracial Unions

Cynthia Cheng Interracial couples are “happenin’” in cities across the country.  According to this Toronto Star article, 5.1% of all city-dwelling couples were interracial, while 0.5% of all non-city people were.  Vancouver has the most mixed relationships, at 8.5%.  The city factor is not surprising, since demographically, minorities are more likely to live in cities […]

Immigration Sob Stories Boring and Not Interesting

Cynthia Cheng Why is it that every story the media report on regarding immigrants has to be borderline depressing?  It’s always about not being able to find jobs, or kids not fitting in.  Going as far back as movies like the Jazz Singer, the immigrant child always has some sort of culture clash with the […]

LG Fashion Week – Thursday: Coccolily Debuts and Others

Cynthia Cheng Coccolily, a Montreal-based clothing line by Naana Tennachie Yankey, made its debut at LG Fashion Week today.  The Fall/Winter 2010-2011 collection, called “A Modern Day Royal” is inspired by the era of Marie Antoinette and all the extravagance that came along with that period of time.  Frilly and feminine, these pieces should please […]
