Wear/Where | Metals and Pastels

Add metallics to any old thing and you have instant glamour. Mix in some pastels and you have the most winningest of winning combinations. Wear: Karen Walker One Splash sunglasses. Where: The extraordinarily cool Shugaa Desert Bar in Bangkok, which is inspired by sugar crystals and, just like sugar itself, something I can’t get enough of.

Style | Wear It Well, Wedding Edition

The only question more daunting than what to wear in a wedding? What to wear to a wedding! Too formal and you’ll be uncomfortable, too casual and you’ll look like you didn’t put in the effort. Drama rama! So for my latest instalment of Wear It Well on Global Television, I compiled three ensembles to wear to three […]

Style | Pretty/Rugged

Imagine what your most artsy friend would pack for a weekend away. Then imagine an entire collection inspired by your artsy friend’s vacation wardrobe. You’ll find that collection at the newest location of Scotch & Soda (the first in BC), which just opened up at Richmond Centre, and is filled with silky striped overalls, tropical bomber jackets […]

Style | #OOTD

The last thing I do before I do a segment is put my ringer on mute and pass my phone to whoever’s standing closest to me. Often that person is Jerome Insorio, who’s not only a super talented stylist, but also an impressive photographer. Whenever I get my phone back there’s always some candid shot with magical lighting and interesting […]

Style | What to wear to a wedding!

Tomorrow morning (that’s Monday, April 25th) around 8:35 or so I’ll be on Global BC sharing my picks for what to wear to a summer wedding — whether it’s at the beach, in a park or a more formal indoor affair. I’ll even include a little something blue, like this lovely shoe. See you in the morning! P.S. […]

Pinstagram | Party time!

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Family portrait. Me and my baby in black and white + a cute way to photograph a family. Fashion Meet. The Eco Fashion Week press conference at the Fairmont Waterfront (read my piece on one of their most innovative shows […]

Style | Rising to the 81 lb. Challenge

Eighty-one pounds doesn’t sound like much – the weight of a seventh-grader, maybe – but 81 pounds is the average weight of clothing a single North American discards in a year. When you see just how much clothing that is, it’s rather alarming. Especially if you’re one of the fashion students at VCAD who took […]

Wear/Where | Peace Out

Give peace a chance. Surround yourself with it; live it, wear it, accessorize your office with it. Wear: An outfit with more personality than you ever thought possible in such a neutral palette (as seen on Crush Cul de Sac). Where: A custom neon sign by Vancouver’s Endeavour Neon (coolest desk accessory I’ve ever seen!). P.S. Metropolette started a […]

The Cool Kids | Vancouver’s Own

I never thought I’d have this much fun dressing my kids. I don’t have nieces or nephews to buy for, and my girlfriends didn’t start having kids until around same the time I did, so I never paid much attention to the kids’ department (unless I was doing a segment on the subject). As it turns […]

Style | Three Takes on One Trend

But first, menswear! It’s not often I get to talk about it, but it is often I think of it fondly. The styles are so classic (masculine, you might say); the pieces rely heavily on colour and texture; trends shift much more slowly than in womenswear. There’s a timelessness to it all that I appreciate. Besides, it brings out […]
