Recently, art dealer Eric Firestone invited my two roomies and I to attend his latest opening for ’40s pop artist, Andy Burgess. But not to attend as just any guests, because this wasn’t just any party. The day after I returned from my 2 month adventure/ gargantuan workfest, I found myself quite the “working girl” once again. Hawking Lucky Strikes (they’re toasted!), Cubans, Emphysema, and vintage candy for tips… dressed as 1940s cigarette girls. That man sure knows how to throw a party.

Way to make a 70s velvet ruffled tux undeniably wearable by layering with a paisley shirt and baggy trousers. Canadians can pull anything off. Hopefully next he’ll try pairing a tuque with a pair of gonch.
