Secrets from Your Sister's (476 Bloor, 416-538-1234, www.secretsfromyoursister.com) Tit Tales event at the Gladstone (1214 Queen West) tonight (Thursday, October 5) is a boobish take on Vagina Monologues-style storytelling. The event is hosted by writer and comedian Shoshana Sperling and features Sky Gilbert, Beryl Tsang and the Strong Breast Revolution along with a SFYS bra fashion show and silent auction. Tickets are $20 at the door, and proceeds benefit Willow Breast Cancer Support(www.willow.org).
The next time you're feeling the all-natural vibe after a rice bowl at Juice for Life's Queen and Spadina location, head next door to check out the new Oqoqo shop (147 Spadina, suite 207, 416-977-1500, www.oqoqo.com). Oqoqo is yoga giant Lululemon's sportswear line, and the showroom-style boutique is its first Toronto location. The store is full of easy separates in bamboo, soy and hemp fabrications including boot-cut and skinny-legged jeans, cozy wrap jackets and luxe bras and underwear.
Made in Milan
Toronto is getting an infusion of Italian style this fall. The Royal Ontario Museum's (100 Queen's Park. 416-586-5797, www.rom.on.ca, $15, stu/srs $12) Italian Arts And Design: The 20th Century runs October 28 to January 7, and the Design Exchange's (234 Bay, 416-363-6121, www.dx.org, $5, stu/srs $4) Milano Made In Design is on until November 12. The DX showcases fashion, automotive, lighting and furniture pieces from the northern Italian city and its surrounding region. Built to resemble an artist's studio, the exhibition includes an interactive carpet displaying photos of featured designers in their workshops.
