For the past year and a half, I have had a predominantly black dress code at work. Prior to that grey was my ride or die, but not being able to wear it at my job brought things to a stand still. As you know I’m a firm believer in having multi-purpose clothes, which really just ended up meant […]Read more "uniform"
After all that beautiful sunshine, we are back to a typical Vancouver spring. The much cooler temperatures and looming rain clouds are a rough reminder that the summer preview we’d been having was all too temporary. On the bright side, this reality check is making me even more excited for my trip […]Read more "april showers "
I know most of you probably have a dress picked out for tonight, but if you’re like me and still on the fence about what to wear, here’s another idea. Instead of going for a girly, glamorous look, why not create a more relaxed menswear inspired outfit to dance the night away in? […]Read more "2016"
I love a good crew neck sweatshirt, and finally found a (slightly) more grown up version in this dress. It’s the perfect thing to throw on for a busy day of last-minute Xmas shopping.

Three of my favourite textures to work with this fall are suede, denim and leather. The combination of soft suede, tough leather and rugged denim gives a nice variety to this look and is a tie in for a few major things we’ve been seeing for fall. Suede has been everywhere the past […]Read more "playing with textures"
Big news everybody, I will be turning 25 in a week and a half! It’s hard to believe, but I will be officially out of my early twenties. Something came up on my newsfeed the other day about how you know you’re 25 when…and while most days I feel anything but younger […]Read more "how to pull off business casual"
Right now is the weird twilight zone between seasons where you see pedestrians in everything from shorts and flip flops to winter coats. It’s freaking freezing in the morning and as soon as the sun goes down, but mid day and in the right light it’s almost like summer is still around. I’ve […]Read more "sweater weather"
As much as I love shopping for a new season (who doesn’t!) it’s even more rewarding to have collected some favourite pieces I’ve been wearing for years. Knowing I have some oldies but goodies I can’t wait to dig out of the closet once the weather turns reminds me that there is more […]Read more "well-loved autumn classics "
Remember this dress and when it was warm enough outside to not wear tights? Me neither. August flew by and the warm weather has mostly gone away with it. We were spoiled all summer with heat wave after heat wave, but the past few days have been a violent reminder about how much it sucks to […]Read more "how to make a seamless transition to fall"
