Beloved dress shop Fashion Crimes reopens at 706 Queen West (416-592-9001, fashioncrimes.ca) to make all your glam dreams come true. What better way to distract yourself from this gruelling winter weather than by browsing Pam Chorley's eccentric collection of gowns?
Party like an artist (or at least with some)
The Artist Project, an annual four-day show that presents over 5,000 works of art from contemporary artists across Canada and abroad, kicks off tonight (Thursday, February 20) with a retro-nautical-themed opening night party from 7 to 11 pm. Drink, eat and browse the art - maybe even get an airbrush tattoo by Black Line Studios. The party and fair take place at the Better Living Centre (Exhibition Place) and tickets go for $23 at theartistproject.com.
The Hudson's Bay Company and Oliver & Bonacini team up for The Wedding Room, a boutique-style wedding event on Saturday and Sunday (February 22 and 23) from 10 am to 5 pm at Arcadian (401 Bay, 8th floor). Browse the best in wedding professionals, from designers to bakers. Tickets are $40 at theweddingroom.ca.
