Last week I was invited to two very fashionable events supporting Canadian talent. The first, a launch of designer Ron White's shoe collection for Holt Renfrew. The second, a vernissage at a new art gallery & tattoo shop in my neighbourhood. I invited my curly haired better half to join me and we made a Thursday date night of shoes & didgeridoos!

|The thing I love most about Ron White's shoes is that they're designed for both functionality & fashion, meaning they're comfortable and chic!|
|This shoe's iridescent quality reminds me of something a mermaid would wear, so whimsical.|
|It looks like a killer, but Ron White created the world's first All Day Heels technology using NASA Poron!|
|With beauty guru & perfume whisperer Jane of Daly Beauty.|
|The first lady, Laureen Harper is a fashionable supporter of Ron White's impeccable designs.|
|With the lovely Deb McCain (how fab is her coral suit!)|
|My tootsies are sample size so I tried on a pair of Rob White's heels for fun. They're like a stylish pillow for your feet, I gave an audible sigh of delight when slipping them on.|
|An animated conversation about shoes (what else!) with the one and only Ron White.|
|The first lady knows how to strut her stuff in Ron White!|
|Champagne & heels, does it get any better?|
|The adorable shoe cookie gifts (which were Oreos dipped in chocolate, yum!)|
After oo'ing and aah'ing over gorgeous heels that I hope to one day be able to afford, we headed to an entirely different creative scene crawling with artists and musicians.
|With Ben, my future tattoo artist for a piece I am getting later this year at the Railbender Tattoo Studio.|
|Celebrating Mat Dube's vernissage.|
|The ethnic melodies of the Didgeridoo (played by none other than artist Mat Dube himself!)|
What is your idea of a fun date night?
