  Now THIS was a fashion show. Over 700 Vancouver fashionistas lined up to get into the cool loft gallery, for this invitation only show.  Front seats were reserved for VIP customers with everyone else squeezing into the generally seating.  We all became good friends as we shifted to and fro to see as much of […]

So I won another set of tickets for Vancouver Fashion Week.  This time I won two tickets to the Sunday show. So I invited my twitter mom friend Alexis (@alexishinde) to come with me.  Sunday afternoon was the kids fashion show and she is owner and designer for a new boys clothing line called Chill […]

Friday night I got myself all dressed up and headed out to Vancouver Fashion Week.  It was interesting to watch the "machine" live.  And I learnt NOT to go to one of these events alone.  Not that people weren't nice. But you really need a friend that you can poke and say OMG! or WTF!   […]

Vancouver Fashion Week continued... Then came Red Jade.  Another eco conscious label.  They use Eco-Luxurious fabric such as hemp, organic cotton, merino wool, silk and linen.  This line was all about grey & black this fall.  It looked great partnered with some strong statement jewelry. I LOVED the wooden chunky chain necklaces.  I emailed the designer and the jewelry […]

And the last, but not least, post from Friday April 9th at Vancouver Fashion Week is Eva Chen's line.  This line was much more stylized than the others. I love the '40s esthetic and she certainly had it throughout her show.  But first off it was nice to see her flare for putting on a show.  The head pieces were […]

Some hair styles just keep coming back.  In the 1970s it was called the Dorothy Hamill haircut.  Then in the 90s it was updated by Demi Moore in Ghost.  Today a number of celebs are wearing an updated "bowl" cut. I've been short more than I've been long.  I just get lazy with long hair. And the most recent bob […]

To sum up my adventure with a stylist so far... 7 bags of clothes left my house either being thrown out, donated or consigned A minimum of 9 "new" outfits were created in my existing wardrobe What is left?  Well I need to shop!  Shop to replace clothes that were thrown away (ie: the well […]

  This is the first profile under a new series about inspiring fashion from the real women around us.  So much of the “talk” about fashion inspirations comes from what celebrities are wearing.  When really most of us see women we know everyday that provide us with ideas, support and inspiration for our own sense […]

So yesterday was my birthday.   As it fell on a holiday this year, I decided to forgo a night out.  Instead I had a "me" day.  Got up late (slept in until 10am!!!).  Took 5 skirts and a dress to the tailor recommended by my stylist Wendy.  Then met 3 girlfriends, and a 2.5 week old […]

I've been watching Fall/Winter 2010 LG Fashion Week (aka Toronto Fashion Week) online this week. Some interesting trends for fall.. but nobody really wants to think about that as spring is blooming. So more on fall later. There were a couple of fashion flashback accessory trends on the runway though.  The first I blogged about a […]
