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.

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 […]

Wear/Where | Indigo Girls

I don’t think there’s anyone who was more passionate about indigo than Oliver Sacks but I like to think I’d come close. Whether you wear it or choose to paint with it, it’s a heavenly colour. Wear: A bold blue plaid (as seen at NYFW). Where: An abstract painting by Pierre Soulages.

Wear/Where | Dark Florals

Florals? For fall? Groundbreaking. (No, really.) When they’re deep and dark and as moody as these are, they’re awesome in autumn. Wear: A flowy kimono with your favourite mom jeans (as seen here). Where: A bit of wow for your walls by Ellie Cashman.

Wear/Where | Mustard yellow

Mustard yellow doesn’t sound all that glamorous but, boy, does it look it. It’s like a little bit of muted sunshine for your closet and your floor. Wear: A day dress at Totokaelo (one of my favourite stops in Seattle). Where: A kitchen (with art in it!) designed by INT2 Architecture.

These florals are wild. They’ll make you feel like you’re en route to somewhere tropical and glamourous, whether you’re wearing them or hanging them up on your wall. Wear: Gucci Pre-Fall 2015. Where: Framed print by Lulu deKwaitkowski.

Where/Wear | Lights, camera, sequins!

‘Tis the season to light up long, dark nights. How? One of two ways: with a stunning brass chandelier (my dining room needs this) or a party-perfect sequin skirt. Where: The stunning Dandelion 32 Chandelier by Tony Duquette. Wear: A sequin skirt from Anthropologie.

Wear/where | Technicolour Skirts and Technicolour Lights

It’s a colourful world. So dress accordingly in a very bright, very bold ankle-skimming skirt. But don’t let your walls be wall flowers. Let them shine by draping them in multicoloured lights. Wear: A vibrant full skirt (this particularly beautiful one was photographed here). Where: Rainbow lights from Bright Lab.

Wear/Where | Jungle Print

It’s a jungle in your closet. And on your wall. Or at least it should be. Lions, tigers and leopards (oh my!) look grrrrrrrreat in abstract prints and muted shades. Meow. Wear: Balmain lion-print top. Where: A mural that would look just as fierce in your office as it would in a nursery.

Wear/Where | High Style and High Tea

Dressing up is the name of the game right now. Then again, there’s something to be said for staying home and curling up with a fresh pot of tea. Maybe you should do both — have a piping hot cuppa while dripping with your finest costume jewels. Why not? Wear: Chandelier earrings available only at […]
