More shoots and shenanigans

Love going for brunch with my girlfriends. Do it every chance I get (speaking of, what are you guys doing on Saturday?).


Last weekend, we went to Bridges on Granville Island (where I used to tend bar) which wouldn’t be unusual except that we went with MTV, thanks to my friend and favourite MTV host Jessi Cruickshank who was in town shooting a Jessi-comes-home-to-see-her-friends-and-family-then-goes-to-Tofino-and-learns-to-surf special.


She found her dress (love the print) in Toronto.


While everyone else wore summery clothes, I was buttoned up in my plaid LAMB jacket to protect my fair, fair skin from the bright, bright sun.


Laura’s dress is one she and her mom designed. And made.


The whole thing was captured on film by MTV’s Jason who shot more than 13 hours of film over the weekend. Which means between that and our night at the Roxy, I’m placing my screen time at five seconds. Plus or minus three.

    Liv — I’ve heard rumours it will air in July. I’m very excited and very afraid.

    Savry — for hemming and straightforward fittings I go to Susan’s Alterations on Main at 22nd in Vancouver. But for complicated tailoring I’d go to Oakridge Tailors on Cambie (my husband took his Hugo Boss suits there and was happy with their work). The woman who made my custom pieces works out of her home in Richmond. If you send me a note at, I’ll forward you her contact info.
