Laying Covet & Want To Rest

I’m finding it increasingly difficult to find things to get exited about coveting, to be honest. So, seems as good a time as any to bid Covet & Want goodbye.




Covet & Want Vacation

Hi all – it’s funny: during the most wanty time of the year, I find myself wanting less.  So, time for a bit of a vacation from the blog. See you in the new year!

xo, M.

Covet & Went: Greta Constantine Midsummer Affair

Last night, all up in the Annex in Toronto, Greta Constantine threw a kickass Midsummer Affair.

Lisa Tant, Hello Canada publisher, talks with Stephen Wong, one half of Greta Constantine

Amoungst the Stoli-sponsored bars, Purdy’s Chocolate ice cream pop station, and wandering servers carrying pool-party inspired bites, a single model wearing a piece from the forthcoming SS2013 collection circulated, giving us an advance, up-close look at a bit of summer-white loveliness.

The evening also had one of the best things that I’ve see all summer – a team of synchronized swimmers (in GC-designed swimsuits, of course), performing a full routine to Gwen Stephani’s Holla Back Girl.  Synchro!  DUDE.  Amazing.

The team, twirling umbrellas, walked from the back porch to the pool. Leesa Butler from to the left, y’all.

The lingering crowd. Soundtrack provided by InXS and Janet Jackson. Perfection.

A lovely dress, a brilliant spectacle, and excellent conversation. Greta Constantine’s Midsummer Affair? So, so good.


Nico Mid-Rise Super Skinny Jeans – Hudson

I think, with printed jeans, I could deal with the printed pants trend. In fact, I know I could.

Huh, So This is What 2011 Looked Like

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 27,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
