    pre fall 

    As soon as retailers begin getting in their fall merchandise and blowing out the warm weather clothes, I realize my favourite season is already halfway done. This year it even seems like summer is over before it started, but that does mean a killer set of pre-fall outfits to enjoy. The silk slip dress will […]

    leather pants 

    Leather pants are one of those surprise staples you never know you need until you try. I wear them 10x more than I wear regular leggings, because they are just as easy but make me feel hot instead of lazy. They are best with cozy sweaters, but can be dressed up for work with a […]

    how to get your money’s worth with fast fashion

    Although there is no denying I like the finer things in life, some of the staple pieces in my closet are surprisingly not ones I had to save for. There are expensive things (like this vintage Chanel) which I bought planning to keep forever, but the longevity and quality of a few pieces I have […]

    comfort zone

    Everyone has a sartorial safe zone they don’t stray too far from. It could be in sneakers and yoga gear or designer labels, but most of us will fall into a pattern of dressing that is convenient and just feels right. It might be a certain cut or a particular colour that you pick up again […]

    uniform

    For the past year and a half, I have had a predominantly black dress code at work. Prior to that grey was my ride or die, but not being able to wear it at my job brought things to a stand still. As you know I’m a firm believer in having multi-purpose clothes, which really just ended up meant […]

    knee high gladiator DIY

          I have a pair of gladiator sandals from last summer, but this year I felt like they were falling a little short. When I bought them, I was looking for a pair that tied up to the knee but the price and being practical led me to go for ankle height. I do love […]

    april showers 

                   After all that beautiful sunshine, we are back to a typical Vancouver spring. The much cooler temperatures and looming rain clouds are a rough reminder that the summer preview we’d been having was all too temporary. On the bright side, this reality check is making me even more excited for my trip […]

    how repeating an outfit makes it better

          You know those days when you feel like you have nothing to wear? When I can’t figure it out I usually start my morning on the wrong foot (and running late…) but finding the “right” outfit never fails to make me feel more confident and ready to go for the day ahead. If […]

    linen

                Linen is such a summer material. It’s lightweight and gives that casual cool vibe since it’s impossible to keep wrinkle free! As much as I love fabrics that keep their shape so I don’t have to iron, linen is one of the few materials that’s better when you make peace with […]

    distressed denim diy 

                Last night, I was admiring all these slightly cropped, loose ripped jeans online and contemplating adding to my denim collection. You know I’m trying to cut down on mindless shopping, so luckily it didn’t take me long to decide I could modify something I already owned to fit my vision instead. […]
