WHEN: Friday, noon
WHERE: Annie Thompson Studio at the back of Annie Thompson (674 Queen West, 416-703-3843) clothing store
CLOTHING: "These are my infamous and all-time favourite Sam and I pants from my store. They cost $245. This chocolate cami-tank was $125 and is also from my shop. I picked up my LanvinParis coat at 83 Bloor (83 Bloor West, 416-975-8300). I better not say how much I paid for it on the grounds that I might get divorced - even though I'm not married. Let's just say it was regularly $4,500 and I got it at a huge discount. These chunky red boots were a Mother's Day gift two years ago. They're from John Fluevog (242 Queen West, 416-581-1420). My lovely friend Gisele Theriault, who designs jewellery for the Barber's Daughter (www.barbersdaughter.com, 416-979-3456) gave me this watch as a gift. My wristband and belt are from my store and cost $25 and $35 respectively. I purchased this Afghani necklace for $40 in Pakistan in 1999. My earrings were made by my friend Rochelle Carswell, and I made my stretchy elasticized beaded rings."
HAIR: "My cut and colour is by Lisa at Xtraordinaire (722 Queen West, 416-504-1814)."
MY STYLE: "A little bit of this, a little bit of that. A collage of whatever suits my mood. It's usually a mix of sporty, funky, designer, ethnic and grunge (with a smile)."
INTO: "Making things, creating, sewing, painting, dancing, textile art, gallery hopping, most kinds of music, triathalon, great and inspiring people and friends, heady conversations, sleeping."
