Bright Young Things

I love Halloween.

On Friday, I attended a Halloween party at the ROM with some friends I met at TIFF. Costumes were encouraged, which was perfect because I love dressing up. I bought my handcrafted Venetian mask in Venice last October and knew this would be an appropriate event to wear it to along with a white sequin dress. Admittedly, I was unsure what this masquerade inspired look was until someone asked me if I was Daisy Buchanan from the Great Gatsby. A bit of an epiphany occurred and I decided I was a Gatsby-era bright young thing attending a masquerade ball! The ingenuity of strangers will never cease to amaze me.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?

Last Friday, the girls and I decided to go to the ROM’s Friday Night Live. The theme was fashion so we made sure to be catwalk ready. I chose this little number that I got for a steal at Urban Outfitters. I kept it simple with minimum jewelry, black shoes, and a candy coloured pink bag.

It has been over a decade since I’ve been to the ROM, so I was very excited to wander around the museum for the first time in over a decade. It’s a really cool concept, every Friday from October 18th to December 6th, the ROM is essentially turning into a club. There’s music, drinks, food, entertainment, and dancing. What more could a girl ask for?

We decided to first explore the museum and sample the food available.

At around 9:30, we were no longer able to explore the museum and gathered on the main floor to check out the band.

Afterwards, we headed over to Guu, where we ordered sashimi, fried chicken, and overpriced soda. Guu had an incredible atmosphere. Everyone was loud and welcoming. The table behind us offered us shots of bamboo wine, which I was surprised was so light and refreshing. We were disappointed how Guu closed so early, but nonetheless we weren’t ready to call it a night.

We made our way down Church St. and got in line for a bar that seemed to be packed. Crews & Tangos is where we ended up. T & V have never been to a gay bar, yet alone a drag show! They were in for a treat! The performer of the evening was hilarious, bitchy, and sure could dance! The girls and I danced the night away until it was time to call it a night and hail a cab home.
