Dilemma: It’s -15C outside with a freezing windchill and you’re supposed to be going to the biggest party the city of Winnipeg has ever seen–what do you wear? GO!
Trick question. It doesn’t matter what you wear–your goose-down jacket is going on top of it anyway, unless you want to catch hypothermia/die on your way to the party. Thank god for coat check, though, otherwise we’d also die from over-heating! As far as shoes go, good luck wearing anything other than closed-toe leather platforms, because I already warned you: baby, it’s cold outside. And, you know, slush really kills suede.
Anyways, despite the big chill, I stuck to the most sensible heels I own and paired it with one of my vacation purchases–and favourite dress to date–this insanely versatile cape dress. I found it in sketchy store hidden within a maze of lots of other stores and it was the last one in my size–there was no way I was going home without it! As for the look I was going for…I decided on futuristic elfin superhero. No explanation needed.
The party itself was fantastic and had a great atmosphere. Lots of interesting people wearing chic outfits…basically, it was fashion girl heaven. The music was great too, I especially loved Flo’s live show and crazy hair! And that one really sassy back-up dancer who was working it like no other. (Seriously, it’s my new life ambition to dance like him.)
All in all, it was an amazing party. What an incredible way to celebrate SANDBOX’s very last issue! Jeff, Braden, Suzy, and Vanessa, outdid themselves with this party and have done such a fantastic job with the magazine. I am so very proud to have been a part of it and will miss it immensely. I have no doubt that long after the last issue has sold out, Winnipeg will still be talking about the gem that was once SANDBOX magazine!
