I finally got a few minutes (stolen after work one day last week) to check out a vintage store on my way home.  Burcu's Angels moved to 16th Ave East from Main Street a few years ago.  It was my first visit to her new location.  A great way to be more sustainable about your […]


The 1980s started out as they would follow... with tight jeans.  Brooke and Calvin got us started and we spent the next decade lying on our beds sucking everything in to do up our jeans.  They were tight and they were skinny - most had to have zippers at the bottom so you could get […]

On the 2nd Day of Eco Fashion Week I attended the seminar on Life cycles in Fashion and then all the fashion shows. The shows were fantastic.  I've picked a selection of some of my favourite outfits below.  I'll do some more in-depth reviews on some of the lines at a later date.   And I need more time to absorb the […]

I met a couple of wonderful out-of-town bloggers at Eco Fashion Week.  And I thought they were perfect to profile in a Follow Fashion Friday post.  For those new to my blog I "stole" the twitter follow friday concept and moved it to my blog.  I like to tell people about why I follow a blog before I […]
