Get involved | Variety BC’s One Night in Monte Carlo Gala

Here’s a serious question for you: If you could be any princess, who would you be? Kate Middleton? Elsa from Frozen? I’d choose Charlotte of Monaco. The woman is pure glamour (she’s Grace Kelly’s granddaughter after all), and seems to live a life of galas, yachts and horseback riding. Why do I ask? (Aside from, you know…general curiosity?) […]

A love letter to a client and an introduction to Hayley Hudson

I’ve been working with the lovely (and I do mean lovely!) team at BC’s biggest shopping destination Metropolis at Metrotown for more than a decade (hi guys!). First, as a copywriter at the design firm I used to work for, where I would write everything from digital campaigns to radio spots to television commercials. Then, as […]

Wear It Well: Holiday Looks for Men and Women on Global BC

Half the fun of going to a party is the anticipation (the other half  is definitely the dance floor), and a big chunk of that anticipation comes in figuring out what on earth you’re going to wear. Maybe you’re one of those people who buys an entirely new look for every event. Or maybe you’d […]

Style | Wear Coziness Well

Here’s the thing about Vancouver: it’s basically fall all year ’round (except for the two months in the summer when it’s pure heaven but we’ll get to those another time). Which means autumn rules the wardrobe. For my fall trend segment on Global BC I brought the timeless beauty: faux fur, leather, deep merlot. Watch […]

Pinstagram | Gallery Cafes

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). Strike a pose. One of my recent trend segments + an outfit I’d pose all day in. Cafe quality. A beautiful spot to meet a colleague-turned-friend-turned-client for lunch + some cafe vibes you could incorporate into your own home. Reflections. A gorgeous […]

Style | Bundle Up, Minus the Bulk

Baby, it’s cold outside. How many posts this time of year start like that? A million! Give or take. But seriously, even in Vancouver (where it’s usually mild and rainy) it’s c-o-l-d out there. So you want to bundle up in a million layers but still want to look like a million bucks? Well then, my […]

The Style Set | Sonia Beeksma

There is an art to dressing for television. An outfit that looks incredible in real life — like say, beautiful billowy things or unconventional silhouettes — can look just plain odd when translated through the funhouse mirror that is your TV screen. Which means dressing for work is a challenge when your office is a television studio. […]

Wear It Well | When It Rains

When Kate Middleton (or whatever you want to call her) was in town, the forecast called for rain during a good portion of the royal tour. Welcome to the Wet Coast, Cambridges! I would argue dressing well for the rain — like, true West Coast rain — is harder than dressing for any other type of weather. […]

Design | Modern Architecture Home Tour

I love my house. I’ve put a lot of love and (hired) labour into it over the years. But there’s a part of me that wants to tear it all down and build the kind of home you’d find featured in Dwell. Or, say, the Vancouver Modern Architecture and Design Society. Their fourth-annual tour takes place this […]

Style | Back to high school!

I loved school. I miss school. Everything about it — the new supplies, the locker decorations, the slurpees I used to get on my walk home; I look back on all of it so fondly. Then there’s the new wardrobe. I don’t remember any of my first-day-back looks, but I distinctly remember a silver headband I wore for […]
