Montreal will always be my home. It's where I grew up, where my family is from, and where I began my career in the fashion industry. It's been quite some time since I've been there (usually Rebecca and the girls would make business trips to Montreal while I would head to the west coast), so last week's visit was long overdue and it brought back a lot of great memories.
The Vogue Loews Hotel:
I've always loved the Vogue hotel and I stay there anytime I'm in the city. They can accomodate any request and they are dog-friendly. My pup enjoyed the "Bow Wow Beef Tenderloin" and he was super-cozy on their fluffy dog bed. I also love the decor - they always have beautiful floral arrangements around the hotel and they have lots of fashion-centered art and photography in every room.
Tavern on the Square:
Tavern is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. I used to have many after-work dinners there with clients, friends and family, and I enjoyed many lunches on their patio with my father, one of our weekly rituals. They have something on their menu to suit everyone's tastes from pasta dishes to seafood to french cuisine, and they have the best daily specials. At Tavern I always feel at home.
Abe and Mary's:
Abe and Mary's is a unique lifestyle concept store created by my aunt and named after my grandparents - Abe ad Mary Claman It is a destination on Jean Talon and they're known for their fabulous cafe which offers home-made salads, sandwiches and baked goods with a focus on gluten-free health-conscious options. I picked up several beautiful cashmeres from Rachel Zoe, Vince and Rebecca Taylor and what I love best of all is that they're dog-friendly. My pup had the time of his life visiting the store!

I cannot get enough of Siwy's Catherine jean. This fierce wide leg crop has also been a top seller and editor favorite going into the Fall 2016 season. It is one of the styles that Natalie Suarez of @NatalieOffDuty chose to highlight in her recent Siwy feature and it has been such a hero jean that it is going forward thru Holiday/Resort 2017 in several additional washes.
I cannot wait til August when this style finally drops - in the meantime, here's a peek at some of the options!

Siwy Denim has just launched a limited edition capsule of seamless washes with the signature pocket. They are amazing classics that allow for 360 degree flexibility and fit like a second skin - perfect for the working woman going from the office to meetings and more. I consider them to be the perfect 24 hour pant, offering comfort with a chic, polished look.
As these 6 washes are being cut to order, they will be available in limited quantities across North America. Nothing beats an exclusive jean in this world of endless denim offerings. Contact us for more info! [email protected]

Nothing beats the perfect jean that takes you from a busy day in the office to post-work dinner or cocktails with clients. Lately I've been living in Siwy's Black Magic jean, which features Siwy's most innovative and technologically advanced stretch denim. It offers the perfect blend of comfort and style, and they feel super soft on - one of my current wardrobe favorites!
