A picture of this little gem arrived in my email box yesterday from Danier Leather and I've been thinking about it ever since. This Python Printed Leather Handbag comes in a variety of colours, including black, bone and turquoise. But it is the Fuchsia is the one calling my name.  Oh Danier Leather why do you always do […]

So I’ve been pretty quiet this week.  I’d  call it a busy few weeks with out-of-town visitors, my husbands birthday, Easter and an short jaunt to the Island for more Easter.  Or you could call it a Easter sugar hangover.  Either way, I’m back today (if maybe still jacked just a bit from Easter chocolate). […]


Happy Easter and Earth Day!  If you are looking for eco-fashion content, check out my guest blog at yummy mummy club.  Now onto Follow Fashion  Friday... I recently discovered a new style blog that I love.  I only like to add blogs I truly love and follow regularly to my blogroll.  And then of course, […]

May 10th is National Denim Day, one of Canada's largest single day fundraisers for breast cancer.   Cure Foundation is encouraging everyone to wear their jeans to work to bring awareness (and raise funds) to help fight breast cancer.   The idea is wear your jeans to work on the Tuesday after Mother's Day, donate $5 and […]

I've been covetting these Toms Red Wedges for about a month now.  I was waiting to see what I got for my birthday before I jumped in and purchased them.  I got one last birthday cheque this week so I was ready to jump at getting them. I almost literally ran down to Twigg and […]

Following up on Tuesday's post on Playing Building Blocks with your Wardrobe, I wanted to show more examples of wearing one item multiple ways.  So I visited one of my favourite local boutiques The Velvet Room in Kerrisdale.   Deborah Richardson and her daughter Jessica started The Velvet Room in 2007.  They saw an opportunity to […]

So I am not going to spend time talking about the fact that today is my birthday.  Not because I'm alarmed how quickly 43 years went by.  Or the fact that I do not feel 43.  I'm going to ignore it because I have other things to do.   I'm proud of my age, but I'm too […]

I am a regular visitor at Portobello West.  And it was a fresh way to celebrate the start of spring.  They were also in their new home at Creekside Community Centre (a LEED Platinum building).   My Mom was in town so it seemed a great way to spend an afternoon, while my little guy napped at […]
