Today was the first day of the first ever Vancouver Eco Fashion Week.  I attended the press conference (which included an interesting intro from Ray Civello from Aveda) and the first presentation by Carly Stojsic, from Worth Global Style Network (a global trend forecaster).  I received my media pass for the week and a lovely SIGG Vancouver Eco Fashion […]

Tonight  was the opening party for Eco Fashion Week at the Aveda salon in Gas Town.   I have to admit I'm a committed Aveda customer.  My hair salon is Aveda and most of my make up is too.  And their scents are some of the few that don't bother my allergies.  There were also yummy vodka drinks and dark […]

The one thing they don't tell you before you have a baby is that your feet will grow. Not just swell with pregnancy. But grow.  I am now wear a half size larger shoe size than I did before I got pregnant. This means that some of my most comfortable and favourite shoes are no […]

Sunday I dragged my migraine out for a little socializing at the FMA Fashion Week Pop Culture Festival Awards Gala.  A hair brush, LBD, great shoes and a quick Amaretto and 7-Up and I was ready to face the fashion élite.    FMA is a fashion, music and arts show on KVOS (airs Saturday nights).  The Fashion Week really is an extravaganza of […]

The ladies over 40 at the VMAs on Sunday rocked.... pants.  Well that is if you can call the lace body suit that Cher wore pants.  But since her outfit is a vintage from her own closet - worn on tour in like 1995 or something - I'm not going to count Cher.  Jane Lynch, Ellen and Mary […]
