Bringing the Heat

Thursday night was a fabulous combination of laughter, lingerie and a truly great cause. (Plus some shirtless men to round out the evening)

The HRM Firemen Calendar Release Party seemed to be a smashing success with the help of Jokers Comedy Club, Perry Paris, Fallon Jones, and some rock-hard abs. I arrived with some friends and my sister in tow, receiving a warm greeting and some steamy calendars from some brave firemen out on the street.

We enjoyed the atmosphere in Jokers, having never been there before. Perry Paris stopped by our table to say hi, completely confusing my sister who is not so in-tune with the blogosphere or the fashion world. My props to her though - she rocked her effortless look in a bright green plaid shirt this night and fit right in.













Then, it was time for some laughs and some fashion. The comedians were killer, including the hilarious Mark Little, and the Second Chance Couture lingerie had people sweating in their seats!













I spotted Vanessa Furlong on stage and remembered that I had fallen in love with some pieces from her Ness'pAs fall line:













(Post event, after some facebooking, we set a date to meet up at her studio soon to do a little (un)necessary splurging.)

At the end of the night the HRM Firemen strutted their stuff on the runway and reminded us that the evening had been for a very important cause - all proceeds went to the Nova Scotia Firefighters Burn Treatment Society.

I have to extend my congrats to everyone who was part of the event. Combining comedy and fashion was genius - it brought people into the seats who might not have been interested in fashion, but who saw that the runway can be just as entertaining as some so-funny-you-might-pee-your-pants style comedy.
