Real Life Women

My girlfriend Rita Rogers has been featured here before, and also here.  And with good reason. She always looks great. She clearly understands her shape and fashion personality.  Last week she once again hosted the Women in Leadership Foundation's BC Women in Business luncheon. And she rocked this great tweed dress.  The best part it was […]

Today's guest post is from my girlfriend Dana Sacco.  She is a busy mom of twins, an entrepreneur and super stylish lady.  I've known her since the early 90s and she was my optician for many years.  Then I moved out west in '99 and got laser eye surgery.  After decades of wearing glasses I didn't give […]

This is the first contribution by a guest blogger on FF40.  Rebecca is a friend of a friend who recently emailed me about her adventure in self discovery and how she presents herself.  I easily appreciated how easy it is to become comfortable in the comfortable - especially when you work from home.  For Rebecca is was her lululemons, me […]

Tonight  was the opening party for Eco Fashion Week at the Aveda salon in Gas Town.   I have to admit I'm a committed Aveda customer.  My hair salon is Aveda and most of my make up is too.  And their scents are some of the few that don't bother my allergies.  There were also yummy vodka drinks and dark […]

Continuing on my theme of wearing things multiple ways - and taking advantage of the pictures Nance let me take of her this week (hey I have to take as much advantage as I can, as I know she'll never let me do it again).  She bought herself this burnt orange vest from "How Bazaar" […]

Nance, my closest girlfriend, can take one piece of clothing and work it in so many ways.   We started with a half moon wrap skirt from"How Bazaar" in PEI.  In the end we had 2 skirt styles and 4 dress styles.  I know I should have taken "how to" pictures too, but there has to be […]

My closest girlfriend turned 40 last week.  We celebrated with some pedicures and lunch without hubbies or kids.   I met Nance in 1991 in Budapest Hungary. We were 2 Canadian girls on exchange and we clicked right away.  We have shared life experiences as room mates, brides maids and god parents.  We share the same shoe size. Nance is […]

Last week Women in Leadership Foundation hosted their mentorship picnic at Locarno Beach.  It was a lovely afternoon with the ladies. Most importantly it was an opportunity to run into Lili Vieira de Carvalho again. I met Lili at last year's Women in Leadership Foundation Gala (she and a girlfriend won  tickets from @miss604).    She is now taking part […]
