In with the new...

Brazen Hussy is now being sold at COVET + CRAVE 803 Queen St. West. 416.860.9898

It's actually the same location as COAL (where we have been for the past year) but the name is different.

We have awesome stuff for the holiday season. I know there's probably tons of fun parties going on and you can't go out recycling outfits all the time so make your wardrobe a little more "brazen". People will thank you... (wink)

Come in and see our new home.


One of those songs that makes you feel like crying...

I love this song.

'RIver' by: Joni Mitchell.

It's coming near Christmas, they're cuttin down trees
They're puttin up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

It don't snow here, it stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And I'm gonna quit this crazy scene.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I could teach my feet to fly

Oh, I wish I had a river, I could skate away on
I made my baby cry.

He tried hard to help me, he put me at ease
He loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle, I'm selfish, and I'm sad
I went and lost the best baby I ever had.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I could teach my feet to fly

Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye.

It's coming near Christmas, they're cuttin down trees
They're puttin up reindeer and singing song of joy and peace.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

4 months later....and a photoshoot for Toro magazine


So I've been anti-blog since May and tons of shit has been going on with Brazen Hussy and we've been SUPER busy.

But I'm done neglecting the blog.

I got an email from the lovely ladies at The Style Box (The Stylebox is a showroom at the Toronto Fashion Incubator where Brazen Hussy is a resident brand) saying congrats for being one of the designers pulled for the TORO magazine shoot.

Take a look...






Actress Charlotte Sullivan- Toro woman shoot. In 5 of the photos, she's wearing the Brazen Hussy "Gigi" Silk Romper for TORO magazine September 2009.

"Charlotte Sullivan appears as Fay Poppington in the movie Defendor, a “superhero comedy” that stars Woody Harrelson as a delusional man living in Hamilton, Ontario, who believes he has superhuman powers. The project was written and directed by Peter Stebbings (Sullivan's BF) and had its world premiere at TIFF '09.

She is currently filming Copper, a 13-part TV series for ABC. And she’s also wrapped Alice, a four-part miniseries that she describes as a re-imagination of Alice in Wonderland set in the 1960s. It features, among others, Kathy Bates, Tim Curry and Harry Dean Stanton."

You can check out the interview and the rest of the shoot HERE.

How wicked is this chick? Janelle Monae...

She met Outkast's Big Boi at a local music event in Atlanta. He was impressed with her talent and put her on his 'Got purp?' album. Soon after, Big Boi introduces her to Diddy and before you know it she has a record deal with Bad Boy.

Originality in music is hard to come by these days. I think that Janelle Monae's style and sound will spark novelty in the state of music.

Watch the video and see for yourself....

The PLAYMATE of THE YEAR drops by...

Jayde Nicole...the men out there know her best as "The playmate of the year" and the ladies know her best as Brody Jenner's girlfriend on "the hills".

She isn't portrayed as the nicest girl on the hills but she's actually a really sweet person and a Canadian girl. (woohoo)

A few months ago, my stylist friends pulled some pieces from our line to use in a photoshoot for a calendar and the next day Jayde's manager was calling me asking if Brazen could design some pieces for her to wear to red carpet events. she came by the store (COAL) and she was like a fat kid in a candy store...except she's actually tiny.

We designed a dress for her to wear to Heidi and Spencer's wedding. (I know...barf) and whenever she comes into town, she drops by the store and gets more stuff.

That's a photo of her and I on mother's day. She came in with her little sisters and her mom. They were cute.

Here are some paparazzi photo's of her with Brody.

Another one of Jayde in the "CC dress" (available at COAL 803 Queen St. West)

I guess this is the closest I'll ever get to being on The Hills...sigh.

topic: sampling/remixes

I'm pretty picky about remixes. I don't like when people take a song that someone else previously wrote/sang and redo it and make it worse.

I think Toto's version of "Africa" is great. Why did Karl Wolf take it and sing it and take credit for it? He didn't even really change it. Thie original was way awesomer. I feel bad for saying this because he's Canadian but it's true.

Flo-rida did the same thing with "Right Round". He sampled Dead or Alive's song and made it worse. When this song comes on the radio in my car, I frantically fumble to change the station. The girl's voice is super annoying.

Anyway...I guess I'm gonna have to get used to all my fave 80's songs getting reused and killed. So sad.

I don't feel this way about ALL remixes. The Kid Cudi, Kanye & Common remix of Pokerface ("poke her face")is actually amazing. I love it!
