Crossroad




Earrings, Necklace, Sweater (H&M), Pants (Topshop), Heels (Nine West), Vintage Purse (Gifted), 
Watch (Marc Jacobs)


Not to sound depressing but lately I've been a very indecisive person. Other than being sure about what I'm having for breakfast or my outfit for the day, I feel as though I'm stuck in the middle of the road when it comes to making certain decisions. I'm sure you've all heard of the quote "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade"... Well, when I finally decide that I want to make my lemonade, life decides to take my lemons back - danggit! I have to admit, I envy individuals that have their entire lives figured out. Meanwhile, is anyone else on the same mid 40's life crisis boat as I am?

Lazy Sunday



 Peplum Tank & Denim Jacket (H&M), Skirt (Wilfred), Crochet Infinity Scarf (Brayn Child)


The good thing about a cold winter day is that I'm able to wear chunky scarves in lieu of a jacket so that I don't look so crazy while prancing around Downtown *happy dance*. My friend gifted me this scarf two years ago and until this day, I'm still receiving compliments everywhere I go! So dare I say if you live in Vancouver and don't own one - you're crazy?! I'm just kidding but you should definitely check out this local Vancouver brand, Brayn Child Products. 

Ps, he makes other goodies too!

Peplum Blues



Ribbed Peplum Sweater & Necklace (H&M), "The Skinny Crop & Roll" Denim (7 For All Mankind), 
Nude Heels (Nine West), Watch (Marc Jacobs), Clutch (Aldo)


This cold and rainy Vancouver weather has given me the case of peplum blues... But I guess that gives me the perfect excuse to wear one of my favorite ribbed peplum sweaters! Lately, I've been drawn to anything and everything peplum. I love how feminine and versatile this style is. It's definitely a staple item in my closet because it can easily be paired with anything! Not to mention, the overskirt of the top helps create an illusion for your waistline to make it look seemingly smaller (which is a bonus - especially when you're still trying to recover from your holiday food coma).

Her Morning Elegance

"Her Morning Elegance" - Oren Lavie


Over the weekend, I went to Portland with a girlfriend of mine who was visiting her boyfriend. He had recently moved there and didn't have any internet connection yet, which is why I've sort of been MIA. Well... That and school! So I apologize for the lack of posts and I promise to have another outfit post up soon :)

In the meantime, click on the music video - I came across it while working on my term project last semester. They did a fantastic job using the "stop motion" technique which was why I was so intrigued by it and have watched it countless numbers of times. You definitely have to use both of your senses to enjoy this video!

Blackberry x Whitney Port

video


Throwback Thursday - Around this time last year, I received the amazing news that my teammates and I had won the BBM Challenge in the Fashion Category. The BBM Challenge was an 8 week contest which consisted of 4 different challenges that tested our perspective, creativity, influence and altruism in our fashion community. Upon successful completion of this contest, we were flown out to LA for 3 days where we stayed in Beverly Hills. During our trip, we were invited to have lunch with Whitney, Paige, & Nicole at Bottega Louie *drools* and then toured her studio. In addition, she kindly gave us some pieces from her SPRING 2012 collection (so cute - I'll eventually do an outfit post when it gets warmer here in Vancouver). 



(My fave challenges & videos!)


Although winning the grand prize was a great achievement, the best part of this experience was being able to work with such talented and supportive friends, I'm so blessed! Not to mention, meeting and bonding with new people along the way.

I can't say this enough because it was such a fun and great experience, thank you again Blackberry, Whitney, MR. Y, & H&S!

Ps, I never in a million years thought I would've won. Entering this contest was definitely out of the norm for me but I took a chance anyways and I'm glad I did! 

Anyways, to all you lovely readers - I'll leave you with a quote that I discovered in grade 7 which still inspires me til' this day: "If you ever get the chance to sit out or dance, I hope you dance"

Forever a City Girl




Cape (Costa Blanca), Blouse (Mexx), Jeggings (HUE), Booties (Aldo), Clutch (Nine West), Necklace (H&M)



Hello world!

My very first post – looks like BlogSpot takes my blogging virginity (haha). For 2013, I told myself to take more chances and to step out of my comfort zone more often. What better way than to create a fashion outlet for myself, right? So, I hope you join me on my fashion blogging adventure. Please feel free to subscribe, comment, and share! Let's inspire one another :)

xoxo,
