So I will admit right up front I have not yet watched the Emmy telecast.  I had tickets to the Blue Rodeo concert in Stanley Park tonight.  And yes, Jim Cuddy and Greg Keeler take precedence.  And I trust my PVR will save it for me to watch later in the week. In the meantime […]


While at Blogher there was a lot of swag. But the best promised swag was at the Mouthy Housewives party. Now I will admit I crashed said party.  My friend Gwen (aka @leftcoastmama) was invited and had RSVPd. She didn't want to go alone, so I was happy to tag along.   She showed her invite and they […]


Last year one of my most stylish friends send me an invitation to a home jewelery show.  I was surprised as I thought of jewelry home shows a bit conservative. I had attended several Fifth Avenue shows in the 90s, even hosting one.   But my girlfriend  raved about Stella & Dot. Unfortunately  I wasn't able to […]


 Back in the 80s my Mom used to wear a lot of Liz Claiborne.  She was a groundbreaking designer in the day, with her bright matching separates for professional women.  Liz's favourite colour was red and her collections showed her love of colour.    She was the first woman to head a company to join the Fortune […]

I promised to post photos of my new red Anthropologie top and Loft denim blazer.  I wore them today.  I wasn't planning on wearing a blazer today. But I got ready to head out the door and realized that fall had suddenly descended on Vancouver, so I added the blazer with a nice little vintage flower pin […]

It has been a crazy week and I haven't been able to finish getting all my SATC bus tour photos done. So here is a photo of me from the Sparklecorn party at BlogHer in New York.   @leftcoastmama went to the washroom and I took a seat to cool down. I might have gotten a bit bored. And […]


I had the best laid plans for shopping while I was at Blogher10 in New York City - drop luggage at hotel, hit subway to Century 21, grab a bite to eat, find the Camper store in SOHO, and then get lost in SOHO.  I even  test drove my shoes a few weeks in advance (the black […]

While I was at the Martha Stewart Living party in NYC I walked by a group of women and heard  "and she was buck naked."  Well like any good Canadian girl I stopped and said "I'm sorry this conversation sounds too interesting not to join you."  And I am so glad I  was so nosey because I met the […]

This was my first Blogher conference so it was all new to me.  But I had heard that there were many unofficial parties that bloggers could expect to be invited to. As a first timer I didn't expect to be on many of those lists.  So I was over the moon to get not only an invitation but […]

So the plan for Blogher10 was to take pictures of all my outfits. I wrote a list of what I packed and figured I should follow up with visuals.  Unfortunately, I got caught up in the conference and only got pictures of 3 of my outfits.  Thursday night - original plan was black pants and […]
