Vintage Betsey

Jo Haughton -  - Vintage Betsey

Sometimes you want to play. Sustainability and budget are first and foremost on my mind when it comes to fashion. But sometimes a girl wants to play. Come on, we all need to indulge the desire. When I got invited to Hilary MacMillan’s preview show and sale I most definitely saw a great opportunity to play *see my insta stories*. And play I did. I loved her new Fall line, and more importantly, as you know I’m a Summer girl, I loved her Spring/Summer preview. While I have trouble putting aside my first two concerns, I do occasionally want to bring forth my third concerns – supporting Canadian and local designers. It kind of goes in the same vein so I don’t think it’s that much of a stretch.

I love the design talent that’s found in Toronto. There’s a constant search for more on my part, but I will say that my efforts to shop vintage come into conflict with it. I’m complex, contradictory, and complicated. What can I say? Wishing to be totally streamlined are not going to make it happen, and when a talented and awesome Toronto designer comes to my attention, well, that excites.

Anyway, as it was a fashion event, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear a vintage Betsey Johnson dress. I mean this dress is so extra! You know what I mean, the crinoline, the ruffles, that huge skirt. What other place is better to showcase it than a fashion event. Also, I never thought how easy and awesome this dress would be to bike in. Just perfect. Plus, I love a good vintage Betsey piece, so I thought bringing one of my fav designers to the show of one of my fav local designers was the perfect idea. Even if it only lived in my head.

That dress, with the touch of denim is glorious.
We spent a week in Toronto with a born native as our guide and if I could tolerate snow, I think we would move there.

Thank you. And yes, it's a lovely city but I'm with you - I abhor snow.
