soggy tissues at the end of the speeches 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
ly reduced items).The sale is not only at 73 retail stores across Canada Mermaid Prom Dresses , it s online too.Ends Sunday at 11:59pm.If it s April, it must almost be wedding season and that means the semi-annual Lundstrom Massive Warehouse Sale (at 255 Wicksteed Avenue, very end of the street) in the brand s Eleventh Floor Apparel warehouse.Not only is this the place to score a cocktail dress or dressy outfit for the season, but the size ranges comprehensive from sizes 2 to 24 but everything is 90% off.You read that correctly.Free parking, cash, credit and debit accepted.There s a one-day-only renovation sale today at Jeanne Lottie.That means major clearance prices on handbags and accessories as well as samples and overstock all marked down below wholesale costs (at The Pink House, 32 Scollard St.Save the dates:April 27: Jewellery designer Rita Tesolin s spring sample and inventory sale starts at 10am (at 67 Wingold Ave.Suite 7), and continues every weekend until mid-May.April 29: Nyood Bar Pop-Up, a free monthly series of fashion events featuring designers and their collections in a marketplace setting, kicks off during the Nyood Brunch (1096a Queen S.in partnership with local fashion bloggers.The first instalment showcases Outclass, Dutch Blonde and eyewear from Aeroplane Vintage.May 5: Queen West stalwart Comrags is moving and April 25 is their last day at Queen and Palmerston.They ll be hosting an open house on May 5 at the new store and studio space just a few blocks north (at 812 Dundas St.If you miss them in the meantime, the online shop is now open for business.May 11: The Montreal-_base_d SWAP team is hosting Take Off Your Clothes, a major clothing swap in partnership with Swapsity, at the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse from 6pm-9pm.Several episodes in, and my position remains impermeable: Compared to the ladies on some of the other shows in the franchise (and, sadly, I am an expert), The Real Housewives of Vancouver are positively suburban.It’s not hokey, nefarious or catty (the latter would be like complaining about angst in a Lars von Trier film), but just you-can-dress-em-up-but-they’re-still-suburban suburban.on the other shows come across like Joan Didion and Tilda Swinton.And, yes, I’m even talking about NeNe.Image-wise, for the holy city of Vancouver, this community production trope of femmes constitute a possibly bigger problem than even the great Stanley Cup riot of 2011.I have a lot of hair.To pull out, that is.Think desperational.or dialogue, at large, that likely wouldn’t even pass first-draft muster at Days of Our Lives.All of which brings me to an appreciation of the greatest and real-est housewife that Vancouver ever produced, and who forever remains one of the great society spitfires: the late Patricia Buckley.It seems like time, even just as an exercise in compare/contrast.Born and bred in what some now call Vanhattan, Pat would grow up to marry the monosyllabic genius and Conservative movement-maker William F.Buckley, together with whom she still exudes a category of glamour that clearly eludes the Slice channel.Pat went from being a curious debutante to Vassar, where a chance meeting with Buckley changed everything.Onwards to what A-Line Prom Dresses , at that point, was the largest wedding to ever be convened on Canada’s West Coast.To then a starring role, for decades and decades, in the worlds of politics, philanthropy, fashion and society.They included Henry and Nancy Kissinger, the Reagans, Bill Blass, John Kenneth Galbraith, Princess Grace, Richard Avedon, Truman Capote (of course), Aileen Mehle, C.Guest, Malcolm Forbes, Vladimir Nabokov, Brooke Astor, Harry Evans, Tina Brown, Reinaldo and Carolina Herrera, Clare Booth Luce and Walter Cronkite, to name a few.You name ’em, and she befriended them, as well as probably fed them.A foodie before there was the term (her dinners were legendary) and a fashionista before that term was in usage either (for many years, she chaired the annual Costume Institute dinner at the Met, and was perennially on the best dressed lists), she was salty, and could be exasperating but, no, never ever dull.is how she was summed up after her passing in 2007 in the pages of Vanity Fair by Louise Grunewald, the Park Avenue hostess.the best invitation in town was to go to the Buckleys’.It was the best fun: It was journalists, it was celebrities Chiffon Prom Dresses , it was Tom Wolfe, it was fabulous.Who gives parties like that today?a line that was clearly on the coy side, but effective, nonetheless!And a real housewife was the role she clearly coveted the most, being as she was married to a man who, by the year 1967, had already made it to the cover of Time.Wherever Bill goes, I pitch the tent.those were the qualities ascribed to her by son Christopher Buckley, the noted political satirist who, not long ago, published a book/ode to his parents, Losing Mum and Pup.well beyond my own modest abilities.Beyond, too, one suspects, some of the humdrum reigning wives of Vancouver, 2012.Oh, where, oh where, have the real glamourpusses gone?A New York bride accused of faking terminal cancer so she could raise money from sympathetic well wishers to pay for a wedding has been arrested and charged with fraud, authorities said on Tuesday.Jessica Vega, 25, faces six charges.She claimed to have only months to live and wanted to experience a dream wedding.New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said the woman had raised thousands of dollars, paying for a May 2010 wedding and a honeymoon.Businesses such as a bridal dress shop and a restaurant donated to her cause.It was later revealed that she had lied about her health.A local newspaper, the Times Herald-Record, reported that Ms.Vega’s husband had called it months after the wedding to accuse her of faking.The couple divorced over the incident.In a curious twist, the newspaper added that the couple had recently reunited.Something borrowed, something blue, and hopefully, a lot of soggy tissues at the end of the speeches.It’s the prelude to the wedding season.A certain .
