A self-professed “geek girl,” Anita Clarke is also a dedicated follower of fashion who doesn’t shy away from speaking her mind. Her popular blog, I Want I Got, has made her a star in the blogosphere and beyond. Recent accolades include being chosen as one of Shinan Govani’s Worthy 30, and acting as inspiration—with fellow style documentarians like Scott Schuman and Garance Doré—for a window display at Holt Renfrew.
Anita shared a few of her favourite places in Toronto with The Style Notebook.
Top brunch spot
“I’m not an active bruncher, so I have a limited view. The best meal I had for brunch was at Oddfellows. I love going with a friend and getting the breakfast for two. Andrew Sardone talked about it in a previous installment, and I think that I first saw this wondrous dish with him. I get cravings for it and one has just been set off.”

Ainsley Kerr is one of the most photographed—and most photogenic—people in the city. A perennial presence on best-dressed lists and a serious supporter of Canadian fashion, Ainsley is most often described as a socialite—which is an easy way to sum up her fortunate background and busy volunteer schedule. By day, she’s an event planner. This year, she’s helming the Boobyball, ReThink Breast Cancer‘s biggest fundraising event of the year.

Favourite place to go for a drink during the week (and drink of choice)
“On the weekend I usually prefer to just chill at home and have a nice glass of red wine in the evening. In the summer, nothing beats sharing a cold bottle of white wine with friends on a dock in Muskoka.”
Andrew Sardone is the fashion and design writer for NOW Magazine and one of the snappiest dressers in the city. With designer Philip Sparks, he’s also half of the fashion scene’s most likable, talented couple.
After a busy week covering the Fall 2010 shows, Andrew shared his favourite places in Toronto with us.
“The breakfast for two at Oddfellows. My boyfriend and I inevitably order the same thing at restaurants so the clay bowl full of baked eggs, sausages and other brunch staples lets us do that without looking too cute.”
