Actually, the best MMVA party was at H&M on Queen St.
Bloggers, babes and NXNE bands converged last week for a very special in-store concert by Dragonette. We fell in love with Martina Sorbara in 2007 when she released the hit song, I Get Around. It instantly became our Saturday night pre-drink constant and it was the first thing we blared once we brought the bar back home. Now, with Hello, we have a new Dragonette track for hot summer nights.
On its own, Hello is the kind of tune that provokes instant happy thoughts, and when set against playful pink blazers, blue-wigged mannequins, floppy sun hats and striped espadrilles, you really can’t help but beam with joy for summertime. First we shopped and then we had a full-tilt dance party in the front windows of H&M. Being a foot away from Martina and band was an unforgettable experience, especially when the Beckerman twins are right beside you shaking their long blonde locks in unison.
Although we enjoyed hanging with Selena Gomez fans in crowded back alleys, the H&M party was the MMVA invite to score. Sexy times.
