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 […]

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 […]

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.  - Whites - Minimalism - Colour blocking -  Patterns - 70s - Now here is my personal list of what […]

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 […]

I've been shopping my closet to see if I can find more ways to wear some of the clothes I already own.  I have this great fuschia Mexx dress, which I wore last year at Blogher.  It was perfect in the humid New York heat.  It has a fake wrap shape and a built in […]

I was only able to attend one night of the Vancouver Eco Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 shows.  But I was excited that the evening included one of my favourite local designers Margarita Angelatos.  Margarita designs two lines Red Jade and Peridot Kiss.   And once again she didn't disappoint.   The Red Jade's Fall Winter 2011 line was […]

This fall Vancouver Fashion Week was the same week as the Women in Leadership Foundation gala, so I was only able to attend one night.  I picked opening night with Jacqueline Conoir, Valerio Moda, Michel Tudour and Patricia Fieldwalker. Jacqueline Conoir opened her show with some gorgeous black and camel jersey outfits.  They had those unique JC details, […]

First off I realize that this is Thursday, but I was only able to post part 1 of my Eco Wednesday post yesterday.  So here is the late Part 2 on Designer Baby Steinberg.  As with Sarah Stevenson, this was her first LG Fashion Week show.  The show's theme was Salvage - reclaim. repurpose. refresh.   […]

Sometime timing is a bitch and sometimes it just works out.  In my 48 hours in Toronto last week I was able to catch 2 new designers, who each take their own unique approaches to producing sustainable fashion.   Today I'll feature Sarah Stevenson and tomorrow Baby Steinberg. Sarah Stevenson To set the stage for Sarah's first collection […]

I love Joe Fresh.  It reminds me of the good old days of Gap classics.  And their show at LG Fashion Week was a HOT ticket.  It was crazy crowded.  But somehow that just made the show more exciting.  The show started with a video of what looked like a 1950s Italian vacation - pretty, […]
