This spring in Vancouver has been very grey, with lots of rain.  I woke up this morning to another grey morning. So I decided to say screw it and go pink.  Plus I needed an excuse to wear my new Jacqueline Conoir skirt. This is one of three new skirts that I bought at their […]

We are heading down to the US for a short shopping trip.   I haven't done a complete wardrobe audit, but I know I have enough coloured t-shirts and tank tops.  My casual summer "mom" uniform tends to be a bright t-shirt, cardigan/jean jacket, skirt/capris/chinos - with fun accessories like a scarf to jazz it up.    So I'll be hunting Target and other […]

I don't do a lot of sale announcements here, but couldn't resist telling everyone about this great sale by Jacqueline Conoir. She is moving to a new studio in July  so they blowing things out.  It starts today so you better hurry in! Jacqueline Conoir will be moving into a new location in mid July […]

I have this great red skirt that I have owned for years. But really only worn maybe a dozen times. It is my orphan skirt. Last year when I had a stylist review my closet she loved the skirt. And noted on my list of things to buy a top that would work with it. […]

I have to admit I get a lot of email in my email box everyday. And a lot of that mail was from daily deal emails. And while I love getting a great deal for something I need, the email was overwhelming. Back in April I was introduced to It aggregates all the local […]


I love the Tony Awards for many reasons, one if which the red carpet is filled with fantastic mature women. And not just young starlets.  Tonight didn't disappoint.    And while I have to admit many of the women played it safe, it is clear that many of them understand what works well on their bodies. […]

While I was sick a few weeks ago I had a set up a seminar for some clients on a Friday.  I dressed to go to the event with the clients.  Because I felt like crap I added some cheery colour.  I made me feel like maybe it might be spring, even though I had to wear tights […]

So last night was the big Fashion Awards in New York.  Again, does anyone really pay attention to who wins?  No, we are all too busy watching the dresses on the red carpet.  I love watching what the designers wear when they walk the red carpet for themselves.  And I love what the big name editors […]

May is now referred to the "plague" month in our house. It seemed that on any given day in May at least one of us was sick.  So now it is June and I realize I have a lot of photos taken of what I wore or events I attended in May that have not yet […]

As promised I tried to wear Red and Magenta (or fuscia pink) together this week. I intended to wear this with a skirt, but the weather was raining (AGAIN) in the morning, so I went with capris instead. And I took the picture at the end of the day, so my pants are wrinkled. And […]
