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!

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 f-list.ca 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.

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 WordPress.com 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.
