Leather Fear, #PD13 is Here

Whose superstitious out there? Today must be your lucky day!

Well, obviously today holds a bit of bad luck as it has finally decided to snow in Norfolk County. Guess I spoke too soon…

Anyone who has heard of Port Dover has probably heard of Friday the 13th. If not, let me enlighten you:

On all Friday the 13th’s, it has been a tradition since 1981 for bikers from allll over to gather in the beachy town and show off their rides. (This includes Hells Angels). In summer months, this becomes a celebration of thousands and thousands of people. Today, however, I’m not quite sure how many bikers will fair out in the snow. Check out this website if you want to learn more about PD13.

Snow or no snow, I foresee busy bars tonight despite the lack of motorcycles, and I foresee it as a leather-filled dodgy-denim rocker-hair affair.

Just for some fun – it is FRIDAY after all – I’ve picked out some runway looks that could be totally biker-chic.

Now I don’t just foresee, but I absolutely guarantee high fashion does not come into play in Dover. If you are heading out tonight, you can expect to see something that looks much more like this:

Plus, tights, a few more layers, mittens, hats and tall boots…

As for me, there’s a good chance I’ll be busting out my leather shorts… So watch out!


What would you wear to a biker-fest extraordinaire?


Hey, Big Spender

BA – BAP – BA – BA!

Spend, a little time with me.

Well my friends, December is upon us and I can finally talk about the holiday season without feeling completely nauseous. I have been in the shopping malls and online, and retailers everywhere are boasting about all the great deals to be had out there so you can “save” your money; but ultimately, the message remains SPEND SPEND SPEND!

So, I have decided to indulge in the commercialized holiday spirit by creating my “Christmas list” for old Mr. Clause, who I can only assume is now a milli a milli a milli, a milli milli milli multi-kalgilionaire.

Dear Santa, I want a new outfit to wear to a semi-casual holiday party.

And please, don’t skimp on the sparkle.

Dear Santa, feel free to bring me anything from Tiffany & Co.  I won’t mind.  It’ll be our little secret.

…But really, Santa, and all of you readers out there, as nice as it is to give gifts and maybe spoil some of the special people in your life this time of year…

Dear Santa, what I really want is to celebrate with family and friends (perhaps over a few home-cooked meals and cocktails to boot) and for everyone to cherish what’s really important.



Alexander McQueen - Punk Skull Pumps - $1375

The minute you walked in the joint,
I could see you were a man of distinction,
A real big spender.
Good looking, so refined.
Say wouldn’t you like to know
What’s going on in my mind?

…Happy (beginning) of the holiday season 😉
