Why the Code for Fashion in Paris Is 66 [Beautiful]13/05/2013 7:32:26 AM
Why the Code for Fashion in Paris Is 66 But as I embarked on my expedition around the style mecca -- Faubourg St Honore, St Germain, Opera and even Le Marais, something seemed terribly wrong. I kept searching and searching for something original and cool. We're not talking zany cool here but All Saints individual, Top Shop creative? Ok so maybe I am slightly exaggerating. But let's put it this way: I saw far too many court shoes and twin sets for my liking. I started observing my fellow shoppers and they were equally traditional. Identical blow drys -- bobs sprayed down within an inch of their life -- dark trousers (nothing above a muted brown tone), silky top and some form of unremarkable trench. The sales assistants also had the same attitude -- no smiling and banter, more of a snooty nod mixed with a grimace. At one high-end store (that will remain nameless) I asked an assistant for some advice on shoes. Anyone would have thought I'd asked him for the answer to global warming. Then at another, I returned a broken necklace and asked for it to be repaired. Not possible. I referenced Hermes, who had been very helpful in mending something for me. "Oh no madame, we aren't as good quality as them." Hmmm not sure their head designer at this leading French createur would be happy with that. Everybody had raved about the store Colette -- a fusion concept store supposedly only selling the most cutting edge garb. I was sorely disappointed. If all the other stores along the street were non-cool, Colette was painfully try-hard trendy. Overpriced accessories that no one will ever wear. Furs and leather skirts that are impossible to put on and extortionate in price. It was a museum not a store. Hamleys for adults with some weird clothes thrown in. On my travels, certain places started to whet my clothes appetite. Zadig and Voltaire. The Kooples. Fab grungy t-shirts and leggings. But I was missing that one-stop experience. My beau took me to the Champs Elysees to try and change my mind. He had to be kidding! Gap, H We entered one of the many Galerie arcades -- Galerie 66 -- and I was literally blown away. A mecca of young designers or nouveaux createurs, all merchandised in a hip, non-conventional way. In fact, it's more than a store. It has its own music label and the layout is Philippe Starck-esque. Shoes were our first stop. I drooled over Vivienne Westwood heels and bought some red ballerina shoes with pom poms. We then entered the clothes zone. And I felt home again. Brit pop was blaring. Tassle bags draped everywhere. Iconic graphics on t-shirts. Sexy one-piece short and crop tops. This was just the beginning. I was like a crazed shopaholic. Clothes piled high -- nothing was getting left behind. I found the most perfect multi-color bag -- in fake snake skin. As for my beau, it was makeover time. Out with the suit, in with the smoking jacket. Groovy waistcoats, double layered t-shirts and suede slip on shoes. Thank goodness mens' shoe designers have started to offer something more interesting than the stock shiny lace-up. I mean, would women wear them? Best of all were the staff -- a funky chick carried all our clothes around the shop as I ran around frothing at the mouth. As we paid, the manager then paid us the greatest compliment. He actually admired our outfits. I was wearing an unusual blue YSL sleeveless sky-blue puffer jacket and my beau a pale grey knitted jacket from Venise. I had all but given up shopping in Paris. Galerie 66 was a revelation. If you're planning a shopping spree weekend -- take a shortcut to Galerie 66. Then finish it off with an apero at the Costes cafe Madrigal next door and spare a thought for passerby shoppers clutching their bags of same same silk scarves and cashmere cardis.

The transmembrane E5 protein encoded by bovine papillomavirus transforms cells by activating the platelet-derived growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase in a ligand-independent fashion. The bovine papillomavirus E5 protein forms a stable complex with the receptor, thereby inducing receptor dimerization and activation, trans-phosphorylation, and recruitment of cellular signaling proteins to the receptor. The E5 proteins of the human papillomaviruses also appear to affect the activity of growth factor receptors and their signaling pathways.

Local girl 'discovered' Eight to 12 years of age is supposed to be the awkward time for girls: too old for toys and too young for boys. Meadowvale tween Maya Campo, 11, doesn't seem at all awkward, though. Maybe that's why she was selected as a Discovery Girl for the American-based magazine of the same name. The magazine is for tweens and its October/November 2012 issue will spotlight Maya and 11 other Ontario girls. Among her articles are contributions to two of the publication's regular columns Most Embarrassing Moment and Boyfriend No Thank-you, Boy Friends Yes, Please. Then came the Discovery Girl photo shoot a few weeks ago. The girls were photographed ice skating, followed by a day of fashion and fun at a Toronto photo studio. "Skating was fun," said Maya, "but the studio was hard work. I had to hold a piggy bank for one picture, for about 10 minutes." While it wasn't easy holding that pose, she noted, it was still fun. And the pizza for lunch and food table loaded with gummy bears and other candy helped, too. Maya, the oldest of four, also plans on being an activist one day. For now, though, she goes to school and studies dance at Anne's Studio of Dance in Streetsville. Her mother, Samantha, said she was pleased the girls were photographed without makeup, with only a little lip gloss. There was no effort to make them look older or more sophisticated than they are, she said.

Don't get me wrong, all of this not a bad thing to want, but it seems that the popularity and "hype" that comes with a blogger has overruled the reasons why individuals initially started in the first place. So to further investigate the matter and to gain some credibility here, I asked a few of my fashion-blogger friends to give their take on the situation as well..
