Now I don’t usually love Baby Phat, for the most part I’m not “gangsta” enough to pull off the high tops, bedazzled jeans and cropped jackets, but ohmygoodness I am loving some of the shoes from the Fall line!! Like these black shoe/booties above, soo cute! And there is a pair of over the knee colourful leopard print boots I am dying for. Saw them in an ad in a new mag, they’re very 90s street walker, (Pretty Woman-esque), in just the right way. Can’t find them on the internet, will keep searching. Click Here to check out the site, and for more info on these shoes!
I personally love this It Girl’s look. I am definately one for the short blonde hair, (Thank you Agyness!), and quirky London style. Wanna See more?? Check out a fab “tough-girl” shoot that Pixie did for the latest issue of British Vogue! click here!
A bit of a casual Girls’ Night out to the Taphouse in West Van. Sadly, the reason we all gathered was to say goodbye to our lovely friend Kristen, (third from right, with the great black top with the shoulder bits).
I’ve been so bad about blogging lately! I’ve been working like a mad woman. Also, I’m in the midst of moving residences, movin’ on up! To the most beautiful apartment, so I have really been a very busy girl. Add to this baking, with no help from Betty Crocker, and I’m fully booked.
I’ve been sick for the past 4 days, finally ready to get back into the world tomorrow! So tonight I was feeling a little down for being home cooking for myself, so I put on some fabulous shoes, and a little Frank Sinatra/Sia/Adele and suddenly my mood changed. I know these are empty pots, but I was boiling the water. Swear. I made a very gourmet meal of pasta and alfredo sauce, and with celery and peanut butter as my appetizer. And Oreos. Double-stuffed.
Just admiring my feet the other night as I sat and waited for a girlfriend. These shoes have become my trusty party shoes, the 5 inch heel is actually comfortable and I adore painting my nails all different high-lighter colours to contrast with the grey. I painted my nails neon orange specifically for these shoes when I first got them. That’s love.
I’ve made it my mission over the past few days to clean out my closets. I decided to do this when I came across clothing from my early years in high school. So far I’ve got two bags full, ready to go. Some of the things I’m getting rid of I can’t believe I ever wore, how were those Pochahauntus style moccasin fur boots with the fur pom poms ever considered stylish???
There is nothing like a fabulous new dress to cheer me up when I’m feeling low, hence my trip to H&M this past weekend. What started as an innocent browse, quickly turned into me throwing down the plastic, (debit obviously, not credit, Recessionistas don’t do debt). Here is how I have styled up the dress I bought!
Doing a little Granville St shopping last week and wandered into USED, (amazing vintage store just off of Robson). Did the necessary 80s dresses-try-on and then spotted these gorgeous white leather booties! Almost brand new, a bit big, but a fashionista will sacrifice. And they came with a very happy vintage price-tag, a.k.a. very affordable – $24!
Walking home from work minding my own business, not feeling particularly fashionable when WHAM two very stylish people snap my picture for their fashion blog: www.fashion604.com. Here it is!
Debbie Harry has long been a favourite of mine. It’s something about her quirky sense of style, how bold she is and how genuinely her personality shines through to the exterior. You can imagine how excited I was when I found a copy of her Rockbird album last spring at a record shop. The cover art is gorgeous, I have it on my wall, and it only cost 99 cents. One of my best purchases. Then this past fall I was searching through a little record shop on Hastings and found Harry’s album for her single “French Kissin” with the same cover art in different colours.
Here are one of my best friends, Shannon and I headed out to see Motor at Venue this past Sunday night. We weren’t dressed like the majority of the people there and so apparently we looked like we were “from Germany, here to see Motor”. Good times with Shan Non.
