The Anthology’s list of what’s new, what’s now and what’s next…
Woke up this morning to the sweet sound of my own voice on the radio. In response to this article in the New York Times about breaking up with a clothing brand (more emotionally draining than dumping that douche you used to date? I don’t know), the CBC wanted my take. My expert insight? While I may have broken up with Abercrombie because of its love of younger women (I adored the brand in my tweens) I’m now in a healthy, committed, long-term relationship with J.Crew, thankyouverymuch.

You’re invited! On Thursday I’ll be hosting a party celebrating JNBY’s third anniversary in Vancouver at their South Granville location. See you there!
It’s official. Vancouver-based photographer Braden Paul will be shooting Sasquatch! Music Festival for The Anthology again this year. Above is one of his shots from last year’s festival and you’ll find a few more of my favourites here.

The event takes place this weekend (April 28-29) at all Value Village locations across North America.
