WHERE: St. Jamestown WHEN: Friday afternoon
Clothing: "I made this dress out of two pillowcases from Buy the Pound at Goodwill (50 Emblem Court, 416-815-4773, main store 345 Bloor East, 416-815-4749). I probably paid, like, a buck for five of 'em. I've had the beaded cardie since grade 11 - it was $5 from Kensington. The heart necklace is carved from wood and I got it for, like, $2 on the St. Charles bridge in Prague. The rose-and-bead bracelet was a gift from my friend jeweller Michelle Yorke of Michelle Yorke Jewellery Designs in Halifax. She made it herself. The other is a piece of leather from Courage My Love (14 Kensington, 416-979-1992) for $2. I got the gargoyle ring for $15 in Montreal. The S ring was 12 bucks back in high school from a vendor near the Black Bull. I got my shoes a few years ago on Orfus Road at one of those big shoe shops during post-breakup shopping therapy. They were free in a two-for-one deal. My heart, kitty and flame tattoos are by Cheryl Volling (King of Fools, 568 Yonge, 416-323-8777). I have to say the best tattoo artist I've ever had is Scott McEwan of TCB Tattoo Parlour (618 Queen West, 416-203-1615). He's been patiently working on my back piece for the past four years. The 7 tattoo was done by Mike at Yonge Street Tattoos (602 Yonge, 416-929-2285)."
Hair: "I've had two different stylists this year: Kristy from Hair 2 (250 Queen West, 416-977-9686) and Erin of Restless (www.restless.ca)."
My Style: "L7 and Gidget go camping."
into: "Gardening and horticultural therapy, opening up a darkroom in my friend Kari's co-op fashion boutique, Wanna Frock? (1378 Queen East, 416-461-9167), going to art school in September, watching Surreal Life and eating Toblerone, all things kung fu, singing along with my MP3 player in public, lying to telemarketers, kittens and rock 'n' roll."
