WHERE: King and Spadina
WHEN: Wednesday morning
CLOTHING: "My collar shirt was meant to be really gaudy, something only I could love, but everyone loves it. Who knew? I found it in Montreal. I got my black wristband at a cheap variety store on Yonge for $1. I bought the infamous black toque two years ago and haven't taken it off since. The eccentric white sunglasses were a gift from local artist Zanette (whom I admire so much - thanks, buddy). The black jeans were found in a donation bin a long time ago. I got the Converse high-tops in Montreal and found the white belt at Winners ($10, College Park, 416-598-8800, and others). The multiple piercings are done by Juliette at Planet Ink (571 Yonge, 416-962-9991). She's so great at her job, and I'm secretly in love with her. Shhh! Whoops... oh, shit."
HAIR: "My hair - when you can see it - is done by Mikka Jacino (www.myspace.com/kilhers)."
MY STYLE: "Eccentric as fuck."
