Runway Trends

I have been thinking about fall trends, and reading various articles in magazines and blogs on the topic. I think Sylvia over at 40 + Style does a fantastic job of summing of the trends as they relate to the over 40 set. Go ahead and read it, then come back. I will wait. Since Sylvia […]

Part 4 of 4 in a Series on Spring Trends I am still rather new to the neutrals party. For many years neutral to me was black. In the past few years I have expanded into greys (loving charcoal grey) and olive green. I am still not someone who wears a lot of browns, tans […]

Part 3 of 4 in a Series on Spring Trends. Florals, dots, stripes, tribal, graphic and more patterns on all over the stores this spring. And we aren't just wearing them alone. We are mixing them together. One of my favourite parts of spring and summer is dresses. So easy to get dressed in the […]

Spring 2013 Trends Series Part 2 Bright colours continue to be on trend this spring. Green is the particular colour chosen by those "trend forecasting" folks over at Pantone. Especially the bright emerald green. But  if you aren't a fan of green there are a lot of other options available. There are also lots of […]

Spring 2013 Trend Series Part 1 The weather may not seem like it is quite ready for spring, but my allergies tell me it is coming. I am so looking forward to shedding some of the winter clothing layers. And in Spring 2013 there really is something for everyone whether it be menswear, lady like […]

Recently Vancouver designer Jacqueline Conoir unveiled her Spring/Summer 2012 collection at, what I assume was, a fantastic runway show in her new 9,000 square foot showroom (I wasn't able to attend).  But today I'm not interested in thinking ahead to spring. I want to think about fall/winter, and some great dresses.  Rozemerie Cuevas has been […]

Menswear is creeping back into our wardrobes for this fall. It will be interesting to see how that mixes with the continued lady like trend.  Hopefully it doesn't come off like a scene from Victor Victoria (which is one of my favourite movies and if you haven't seen it download it on netflix TODAY. Julie […]

Spring finally seems to have arrived - well until tomorrow when it changes its mind.  No matter what the weather man decides, the magazines and blogs are all talking about what is hot for spring.    Frankly almost everything seems to be in this year.   And many of them seem to overlap each other.  But here […]

One of the good things about the fashion seasons is you can see what is going to be on trend for fall before you start buying your spring clothes. It lets you know which silhouettes are going to be around for a while - well at least 2 seasons.  I'll leave the many downsides to the […]

I  haven't done an eco-Wednesday post for a while. So it seemed a good time to highlight another great designer from Vancouver Eco Fashion Week (EFW).     Dahlia Drive is interesting to me on two accounts.     A very pretty femine line of upcycled designs.  A story of career re- invention after 40... This post is longer than usual, but […]
