What is more beautiful than Vancouver in the Fall? Watching the leaves turn from green to orange, walking through piles of leaves and layering on scarves and sweaters are some of the best things about Fall. Can’t wait for more….. (When will it be cold enough for ear muffs and fur??)
Tuesday night! At Celebrities! Stephanie and I got ourselves a bottle of white and had a toast to the last party night at my old apartment, before I move on down to the harbour. Here we are all dolled up to party!
Just before I left I found this little peice of black and white polka dot ribbon and asked Steph to tie it around my neck. I’m quite liking the effect, and I think I’m gonna do it again, maybe with a white satin one next time. Of course I’ve got my favourite Zara heels on here, they go with everything, and an AA dress.
Steph wears a vintage pink satin skirt, lace top and platform pumps.
Steph is one of those friends who influences your style, and mine has definately changed since I met her, I think she turned my like of vintage to a full out obsession.
Both of these dress I made when I was 16, (for a high school fashion show – each took about 7 hours). They both fit me when I was 16. So I think it’s both a fabulously amazing and utterly depressing fact that I still fit both. Although I couldn’t get into either of them last year, so maybe I’ll see it as a good thing. Anyways, I LOVE the pink/white dotty dress sooo much and was always sad I wouldn’t be able to wear it again. But I can!! I must get boyfriend to go out somewhere fancy with me soon before the weather turns too cold to wear a white strapless dress.
Finally made it over to my old apartment on Haro, oh pretty spring time on Haro St, I will miss you, but then got distracted with lots of clothes I haven’t seen in weeks. And ran around my apartment taking pictures. The ruffly black dress is a vintage find, I’m gonna go with 80s.
I’ve been lusting after Michael Kors’ hot pink fur coat, (F/W 09), and thinking how on earth will I ever come up with the $5000 to make it mine?? When I realized I already own a sweater similar to it. I got this sweater about 3 years ago at a vintage shop on Main St, and wore it to school the next day. Nobody was wearing anything like it – this was the time of tight flared jeans, hideous printed hoodies, those awful yoga pants and lots of Uggs – but I thought, I love it so I don’t care. It sheds like crazy, but no more than the now ever-so-popular purse dog, so I can handle it.
Im supposed to be packing up my apartment right now, transferring all my stuff from my old apt to the beautiful new, (actually it’s 100 years old), one! But I procrastinated instead. I figured I haven’t done a post in ages, so I should invest part of my day in doing that. Winter here I come!
I’m in the process of moving my blog over to WordPress. In the meantime, please visit my old site on Blogger: http://stylestruckolivia.blogspot.com
Thursday night in NYC must have been amazing, I wish I could have been there. Hundreds of celebrities, designers and models prancing around the city from party to party celebrating fashion with a glass, or two, of champagne. Sounds like heaven to me.

I’ve been wanting caramel coloured leather boots for ages and ages!! And finally I found some! Except that they aren’t leather, they’re a synthetic look-a-like and the price tag was only $39.99, (found at a trendy mall store near you). I’m thinking they’ll be perfect for fall running around when it’s raining, I don’t have to worry about ruining leather! I’m wearing a bathrobe because I just woke up, I couldn’t wait to show the boots!
Top: A rolling rack in what Tommy refers to as “the fashion room” in our apartment. It’s the room where I get to put all the girlie things, all my clothes and shoes and pink and sparkles and glitter and feathers… It’s a very happy place for me.
Girl’s Day! Today started with a lovely little browse around H&M while I waited for my girlfriends to meet me for Bellinis. I ended up with a $6.95 purchase-a fab over-sized white V-neck tee. Aannndd I tried on some cute faux-fur coats, but I couldn’t decide, and I don’t really know if I need more fur coats, especially when they’re faux fur when I already own a couple vintage fur coats. But anyhow, I snapped some pics in the dressing room of the coats to show you all how they look. I think I might pass, although I really do like the grey/black one. Last is a pic of two of my girls and I getting pedis on Davie St. Definately a lovely girlie day.
This past Monday I had a day off, (which are rather rare these days), and so I did a big loop around Vancouver running errands and hunting cheapie shopping destinations. And I found them! I had been on the hunt for a few things and I found two!!: lace gloves and a fur stole.
