Like a blushing zebra

This outfit is black and white and red all over. This vintage skirt was quite a find (I love pleats). I also love imagining the original owner of my vintage pieces. This one seems like it could have belonged to a detective back when people smoked at work. What do you think?

At work, it’s a shirt

On the beach in Barcelona, it’s a dress. I love a good shirt/dress. So versatile. And then there’s my amethyst cuff, which is always an amethyst cuff.  Forget diamonds, I think coloured stones are a girl’s best friend.

So much cooler than a seating chart

Attended a wedding at the beautiful Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler yesterday. Loved everything from the mini cheesecakes to the bride’s red ballet flats, but especially loved that they used Ukrainian eggs to let guests know their table number. Each hand-painted egg had a tag with a guest’s name and table number on it. If I had thought […]

Two Mikes. Two shirts.

Both, interestingly enough, with some bright blue and neon orange. The first is by the stylish Mike Lyall who silkscreened 6 0h 4 on it. (604 is Vancouver’s area code. 6 0h 4 just makes me laugh). The second is by Michael Doehle (also the man behind this shirt) who collaborated with Jamie Bizness on […]

Why Ry guy is a fly guy

First, there’s his moustache, which he’s been rocking since Movember.  Then there’s his bolo tie, which is tied with his bow tie for first place in the neckwear category. And then there’s his bike. Which is just rad. Finally: his hair. Which is well on its way to being Morrissey hair. Ladies and gentlemen, I […]

Born again gorgeous

This guest post is courtesy of Ashley, one of my very best friends in the whole wide  world. In the beginning, there was the scarf. A gorgeous vintage scarf. And now it has become these amazing shoes. Purchased at Te Casan in NYC (RIP), the broadway-dancer-wannabe-turned-sales-associate only had to utter the words “one of a […]

I couldn’t talk about custom-made goodies

without including my two favourite rings (k, fine: my two only rings). The band was designed with the help of my talented designer friend (you’re the best, Ben). And the ruby was inspired by these earrings from Vogue. Which one day maybe, hopefully will one day be mine.

Too perfect to put on

When I fell in love with an illustration of a blustery fall day by my friend Michael Doehle, he silk-screened it into a men’s American Apparel t-shirt for me. Though Bernie’s less interested in the shirt than the camera strap. I love it so much I’ve hardly ever worn it because I never want to […]
