I am participating in Keep It Real, a 3 day challenge to make print magazines pledge to use at least one non-photoshopped image per issue.  Yesterday, the first day, was a twitter campaign aimed at print magazines. I tweeted Flare, Chatelaine and More Magazine. This challenge is aimed primarily at how the images in print media affect […]

June has been rather like a Vancouver winter.  Rain, cold and very little sunshine. So on the first day of the recent Northern Voice blogging conference, when the sun came out I pulled out a summer dress and sandals. What I forgot in my excitement over the sun, was that it would likely be cool […]

Last week I was asked to speak at the Vancouver Mom Top 30 Mom Blogger Gala.  It was the perfect night to debut my new Kiyonna dress.  I was recently asked to be part of the Kiyonna Blogger Brigade and picked this Harlow Faux Wrap Dress in red.  I have wanted a great red dress for […]

I am bringing back my Real Women series, with a few tweaks.  Instead of just talking fashion I’m going to ask some inspiring, interesting and beautiful women some “life after 40” questions, with a bit of fashion thrown in for fun.  The topics will include a wide range of relevant life topics as we progress […]

Another of my favourite fashion nights out.  This time New York fashion hit the red carpet  for the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards.   There are several things I love about this event. (1)Iis that we get to see what the designers wear and how they style themselves when they come out […]

I expect the MTV Movie awards to be a little light on the 40+ actresses.   But this year was ridiculous.  In the red carpet photos I found none.  The "older" female crowd were represented by mid 30s women, such as Charlize Theron (loved her red dress), Elizabeth Banks (looking edgy in a black jumpsuit) and Kate Beckinsale (in […]

Back in the 80s I wore a lot of neon and bright colours. My favourite was  hot pink.  But I also owned and wore a lot of salmon coloured pieces.  So I was a bit hesitant this spring when that bright salmon colour came back into style.  The question was could I wear a bright […]
