Vivienne Westwood in the Annex?

Max MacDonald checks out new store Casa Como

08.02.2011

The Annex has been alive with activity this summer, thanks to festivals, events and openings. Now there’s another reason to visit one of the city’s best neighbourhoods. Casa Como, a clothing store that opened less than two weeks ago, imports big-name designer wear into Mirvish Village. Located at 606 Markham St, this new boutique is a fabulous standout in an area known for low- to mid-priced restaurants, florists and Honest Ed's. The small store, whose owners buy direct from Milan, packs a strong fashion punch, with items by designers like Vivienne Westwood, Rick Owens, Play by Commes des Garçons (see above) and the jeans line Absolut Joy. In keeping with the Annex’s laid-back aesthetic, Casa Como has an espresso maker on hand so you can sip while you shop. For those who hate Yorkville’s occasionally pretentious vibe, you finally have a place to chill, relax and shop sans attitude.

      Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones pointed to early season losses to the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears when he explained the decision to fire defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

      "I didn't like the way we were playing in a lot of cases," Jones said in a taped interview that KTVT-TV aired Wednesday, via ESPNDallas.com. "I thought we could play better before the injuries, and so I factored that in. It wasn't like we had a lot of injuries out here when we played Chicago. It wasn't like we had a lot of injuries when we played Seattle. I didn't like the way we played there.
