The blue hues are picked up by the colours of the earrings and shoes. Just so happens they matched exactly, it rarely happens with me since I like eclectic mixes. However, when it does happen, I rejoice in the extra specialness it adds to the outfit.

Gypsy Night Market Vintage Sale

Last night Michael just got back from Tough Mudder, some crazy race for crazy people.

We decided to go for a stroll and check out the Chinatown Night Market, since it was only a couple of blocks away.

As expected, it was kind of sad. Next time I am just going to head straight to the Richmond ones.

However, the night was not a total bust. On the way home, we walked past The Fortune Sound Club. Usually filled with your dancing drinking variety of events. However, last night they had a special fashion and shopping guest, Gypsy Market Vintage. To match the neighbourhood happenings, it's a special Night Market Vintage Sale. Well, of course I had to go in!

It was well worth it.

Fortune, where I had my Halloween extravaganza is transformed in to a Gypsy Night Market.

Airy Fairy Outfit of the Day

Happy lazy Sunday everyone.

Hopefully you are all having a good time basking in the sun, and hopefully its sunny where you live.

I weather happen to be pretty nice in my neck of the woods today.

Nothing to complain about.

Here's my outfit of the day. Hope you guys like it.

I am more or less wearing my summer essentials. I have a feeling it's not going to get very warm in Vancouver this summer.

Sometimes, I like to overdose on one extreme. Take this outfit for instance, it is as girly and soft as it will possibly get.

soft chiffon fabrics with lace and a giant flower? and a pearl necklace? Yeah, it's pretty much the epitome of romantic girly.

Sunny Disposition

Welcome summer, your timely arrival could not be more appreciated.

I have been going through some personal matters that have put me in moods that matched weathers prior to this glorious sunny day.

I remember years ago it would be quite hot beginning of June already. It would be shorts and sandals weather three before it's actually summer.

However, last year and now this year, spring has been more like fall. Rainy, gloomy and if it's ever sunny, it would feel like a crisp autumn day.

It's really warm outside right now and there is not a more beautiful place than Vancouver when it is sunny out.

I decided to reflect the beautiful sunny day in my outfit as well.

Gucci Charmy yellow purse, Designer purse, Gucci Purse, Fashion, style, designer, guccissima leather, leather bag, Lime neon pumps, neon shoes, pumps, asos tights, asos big hearts tights, tights and pumps, Yellow flower and pink feathers, yellow hair flower, pink hair feathers, Wilfred silk cream blazer, Aritzia blazer, feather necklace, yellow vintage sun dress, self hemmed dress

I stuck with various tones of yellow to establish a sunny disposition.

See similar blazer here. You can also buy it from any Aritzia store if you happen to live near one.

See similar dress here.

Lime neon pumps, neon shoes, pumps, asos tights, asos big hearts tights, tights and pumps, fashion, style

Especially these shoes, they make me smile.

For tights see here.

For similar shoes, see

Yellow flower and pink feathers, yellow hair flower, pink hair feathers, fashion, style

The rest of the accessories finishes the complete outfit.

I haven't worn feathers in awhile either. It feels nice to bring back the combo of hair accessories that I lived in last summer.

I hope nice days are here to stay from now on.

Have a good one, everybody.

Celebrity Doppelgänger

Ewan McGregor!

Ewan McGregor, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Relax, I don't think I look like him at all.

But I did find his Celebrity doppelganger!

Michael Fassbender, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

No that's not him again, that's Michael Fassbender. The guy in Inglourious Basterds, Shame and most recently Prometheus.

Actually, the similarities between the two actors is blaring in Prometheus. The whole time I find myself wondering, I didn't think Obi Wan Kenobi is in this movie? But I guess he is.

See!

Michael Fassbender and Ewan McGregor side by sdie comparison, look alike, celebrity doppelganger, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Now we have to rewind a little bit to a few days ago.

I just started watching Lost, yes yes, that's so a few years ago. But that doesn't change the fact that the show is epic!

In the show, this guy plays Sawyer, Josh Holloway.

Josh Holloway, Lost actor, Sawyer from Lost, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Which at first I thought was this guy, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

He plays Jamie Lannister in an entirely different but also epic series, Game of Thrones.

I know, they don't really look that alike in their head shots.

But how about now!?

Josh Holloway as Sawyer in Lost and Nikolaj Coster Waldau in Game of Thrones, look alike, side by side comparison, celebrity doppelganger, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Especially since they are both in character get up, these might as well be the same people. Lost was filmed a few years in the back, so it's natural to assume that Sawyer could have aged into Jamie.

Well, of course two sets of doppelgangers do not a post make. So when Ewan and Michael came along, my plan to do this post has gotten a good push.

Then I thought back at who else I have thought looks almost identical to the other.

First I have these two heartthrobs.

Casper Van Dien, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb, Rico from Starship troopers

Timothy Olyphant, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

I think they actually look much similar when they are in motion. They have almost the same demeanor and body language.

But really, the clincher are these two fine gentlemen.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan from Greys Anatomy, Denny Duquette, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Javier Bardem, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

No they are not the same person twice, one smiling a smaller smile and one smiling a bigger one..

But I bet all you are thinking of is Javier Bardem right?

Or if you are a Grey's Anatomy fan, Denny Duquette, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

I probably don't really need to do a side by side, but here it is anyway.

Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan side by sdie comparison, Celebrity look alike, celebrity doppelganger, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Now these two are carbon copies of each other for sure! So Penelope, don't worry if you break your current one, there is a backup standing by.

Actually, I am not quite convinced that these are two separate people. I think it's all a clever hoax! I bet this person's actual name is Javier Jeffrey Dean Bardem Morgan.

Finally, my last set is dedicated to videogame nerds everywhere.

If they ever make Mass Effect into a live action movie, I know who is a dead ringer to play male default Sheppard.

Matthew Fox, actor from Lost, Dr. Shephard, Jack Shephard, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Matthew Fox from Lost.

Don't believe me, here's them side by side.

Matthew Fox from Lost and Commander Sheppard from Mass Effect side by side comparison, look alike

Here's one more thing, the Matthew Fox's character name in Lost is Shephard! Shephard, Sheppard? Could not be more perfect.

I am actually not the only person that thinks so. This person does, too!

Which lead me to this conclusion. The Dr. Shephard on the island of Lost is the forefather of commander Sheppard in Mass Effect.

You're welcome, I know I just answered so many questions about where commander Shep came from.

What does this post have to do with fashion!? Nothing really, but I like to take detours sometimes.

Finding people that look like each other is a hobby of mine.
Happy weekend.

Peachy Keen

So my very first scrabble word was Dogvane!

What's a dogvane you ask?

Dogvane in a park

That is a dogvane.

Free People hatattack hat, tobi prada inspired darla sunglasses, desginer inspired sunglasses, peach hat

No, those items do not have anything to do with scarbble. Though, hat, used with some combo words and triple word bonus can land you some serious points.

What do all three of things have in common though?

Well, the first depicts the setting of this entry, while the second star in it.

Lately, we have been getting really crappy rainy, gloomy, grey and cold days in the morning. But come quitting time, the clouds part and rays of sun warm up the cold parts of the pavement, and perhaps my heart.

Works for me, I rather be able to enjoy what little there is the the sun we get as much as we can.

So, on another typical Vancouver day, we headed out for another "typical" shoot.

Vintage crop top with dusty rose, maxi skirt with high slits, brown woven belt from Urban Outfitter, free people hattattack hat, tobi prada like sunglasses, gucci yellow charmy purse, vintage style, thrift style, colour blocking, color blocking, monochromatic style, fashion, street style, green grass fields

See my face, well that's pretty much the day from morning to afternoon, from gray to yay!

Vintage crop top with dusty rose, maxi skirt with high slits, brown woven belt from Urban Outfitter, free people hattattack hat, tobi prada like sunglasses, gucci yellow charmy purse, vintage style, thrift style, colour blocking, color blocking, monochromatic style, fashion, street style, green grass fields

This ensemble is mostly items of the vintage variety. The top and skirt are both from the Fair during their moving sale. I hope they find a new location soon and reopen once again.

The skirt didn't have slits quite so high. They were more only up to my knees. For some reason, it just did not look right. I had to take drastic measures and upped ante by raising the slits.

I am happy with the results.

Vintage crop top with dusty rose, maxi skirt with high slits, brown woven belt from Urban Outfitter, free people hattattack hat, tobi prada like sunglasses, gucci yellow charmy purse, vintage style, thrift style, colour blocking, color blocking, monochromatic style, fashion, street style, green grass fields

It just gives the whole outfit so much more movement.

The plush green grass fields really provides the most optimum back drop for this peachy outfit.

So, would you say this is more monochrome? or is it colour blocking? Yes the colours don't vary so drastically as you would see a typical colour blocked outfit. But at the end of the day, it is solids on solids.

Oh it's all semantics, the important thing is, it's a happenin' outfit.

I feel like such a lady.

One Purse, Three Outfits

As I mentioned in my last post, I wore my LV multicolour Sologne with all my outfits last week.

Unfortunately, I was not able to capture all the outfits because the elevator has been wrapped with moving padding, and I don't always have access to that giant mirror.

But, I did capture three.

Monday

Vintage shirt from the Fair boutque in Vancouver, Indigo sari scarf from Talize, floral maxi 90's skirt from the Fair, Vintage gold buckle shoes, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

Vintage blush colour crop top from The Fair. See here for similar.
Floral 90's maxi skirt, if my mom was more feminine I could probably find something like this in her closet, but alas, I have to find it in a vintage section of a shop, similar
I really like the bright rich hue of the sari scarf, it really stands out compared to the redder tones of the rest of the outfit, but I think that's why I like it so much, similar

Tuesday

Orange infinity scarf from talize, floral jacket from Talize, yellow shirt from Wildlife vintage, rock and republic jeans, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

Tuesday is casual day, the only time I would ever wear jeans.

The bright yellow top is definitely the center of attention here. I thrifted it from Wildlife thrift store but you can find a similar one here
To maximize on the brights, I also wore my new orange self made infinity scarf, you can find a similar but much more fun one here
Since floral is all the rage, though maybe on the way out and being replaced by pastels and neons, I decided to throw it over the whole thing, similar
Of course my jeans, just some basic skinny R&R's

The rest of the week has been pretty hectic. We went on a retreat to Whistler, great to see everyone let loose that's for sure.

Pandora came out with some new spring color charms. This aqua blue murano glass bead really caught my eye. I had to get it.

Pandora murano glass bead in blue new spring colour, arm party, bracelet, arm candy, pandora, murano glass, tiffany and co, accessories, jewelry

Now my charm bracelet is almost complete.

Saturday

Wholesale7 white hi lo skirt, chiffon skirt, tobi polka dotted back chiffon shirt, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

Wholesale7 white hi lo skirt, chiffon skirt, tobi polka dotted back chiffon shirt, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

I really like this outfit! Just simple black and white, accompanied with my lovely multicolour. See, that purse goes with everything.

Top from Tobi, they no longer carry the same top, so see here for similar
Chiffon hi-lo hem skirt from Wholesale7, they charge an arm and leg for shipping to North America, so see here for similar.

Looking back though, it has been awhile since I wore a solid piece of overwhelming colour, well, not since this post. But I consider yellow a neutral anyway.

Have to bring some more colours in soon.

So, stay tuned.

Purse appreciation LV Monogram Multicolor Sologne

Monday, brain dead, especially since I had to work over the weekend.

Today's post is just going to be short and sweet.

I didn't realize this, but I wore the same purse with all my outfits last week.

LV luis vuitton multicolor monogram sologne in white, LV, Luis vuitton, designer purses, white multicolor purse, crossbody purse, beautiful purse, fashion, style, designer consignment

How did that happen. Probably somewhat due to extreme laziness.

But mostly because this purse really just went with everything! The fact that it's white with multicolor monograms just made it tie in with everything.

This style is discontinued and you can only find them via designer consignment stores now, for cheaper! I just love to scour consignment stores for the unique items that once was and will never be again.

Check out these online designer consignment stores if you want your own Sologne

Ann's Fabulous Finds
Yoogi's Closet
Malleries
Portero Luxury

However, there are some other options, if being splashed with logos and brands is not really your thing.

Rafe New York - Ariana Pebble Leather Cross-Body (White)

RALPH LAUREN Laser-Cut Calfskin Cross-Body

Have fun shopping :)
