See! My head isn't even in this photo and I think I look like I can touch the sky.

All thanks to my 6inch heels and my pants that gave me that extra third length that will be counted towards my bottom half.

So safe to say, I am mostly legs in this outfit. Who doesn't want those kind of proportions eh?

Bottega Veneta - Another Woven Masterpiece

It's the one obligatory rainy day per week that comes with every Vancouver summer.

I guess one day per week isn't that bad. Except when the rains, it immediately feels like winter.

But I have a reveal today that certainly brightens my day.

Another Ann's Fabulous Finds find. I consider myself their best customer :)

My very first Bottega is a vintage piece. Tan, buttery soft, petite, delicate and gorgeous. I really thought I was able to stop at her. Who and I kidding. (also note: boy was I pale in that post!)

This bag is a little different. More practical for one.

I love how even the hardware matches the woven design of the entire purse.

She's definitely an amazing everyday purse. Light weight, not too big, not too small. A basic color that will go with anything.

Seeing my purses captured for an eternity in photography reminds me why I love them so much. The craftsmanship and the design such staying power.

The purse went perfectly with one of my edgier outfits.

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday.

Garden Party

Quick post today.

Thrown together this outfit last minute.

Ended up turning out to be one of my favourites.

Balenciaga Sahara city with GGH, Floral shirt, Pink maxi skirt with DIY high slit, Yellow stelletto heels, summer outfit, Fashion, Style

The top was thrifted and skirt from a vintage store. For a similar shirt, see here. For similar shirt, see here.

For the purse, definitely browse these online resellers.

Which brings me to the shoes finally. I love these fun bright stilettos, I wore them to a wedding recently. They hurt, that's no doubt, but they are constructed pretty well, if I am sitting down, I don't feel like I am wearing heels at all. Some shoes that I have, they hurt no matter what I do.

You can get your very own from Tobi.com.

Sun is back in full force today, maybe beach yoga again when I am off work.

Enjoy your day.

Neon Animal

Summer is here fiercely. Just the way I like it.

Been soaking up a lot of sun as a result.

Today's outfit is bright and wild. The way I view life and all it's wonders.

The God Particle

One week ago, the scientific community rejoice as they have discovered the God Particle, also named the Higgs boson. Even though recent tests believe that it may be an "imposter" instead, it still got me wondering.

When I was little, I have always been obsessively fascinated by stars. Whenever I am away from the city, I would always gaze up to the night sky, enamored by the twinkling beauties in the sky. And if I am lucky enough, and far away enough from all the light pollution, I would be able to see the white ribbon across the sky that is the Milky Way.

No better way to feel insignificant than gazing up and wondering how is it that we came to be? On a planet with the perfect balance for such diverse life to exist.

I was away from the city, but the night sky eluded me that night. Still, I feel more connected to the universe than ever before.

The flowers embrace my crown as I run through the field on my bare feet.

Nature in all its wonder cradle me. Since there is a particle that exist in all life, and without it we cannot be, then we are all connected.

Sometimes, being away from the concrete jungle is the only way one can truly feel, free...

My Corona

No I am not talking about the sipping kind. Though, today would be the perfect day for one.

Last Thursday night to Friday, I went up to Squamish to visit Micheal. He was away for the annual BC Bike Race. The event is a world wide recognized single track mountain biking extravaganza. People from all a round the world pack up their things, and get embraced by the beautiful British Columbian wilderness.

I went to visit him during the Squamish day.

That is the logo he designed.

This is the station he manned.

It was a gorgeous day and as I walked around Brennan Park Recreation Centre, these guys caught my eyes.

daisies

Since I had the day to frolic around while he worked, I quickly turned those flowers into decoration.

They lasted a while, until finally welting to the unrelenting heat of the sun.

Style post is coming up. Here is a sneak preview.

The outfit really does create a cute shadow.

Christian Louboutin Shoe Love

Happy 4th of July folks down south.

Today, I want to share with you some Shoe Porn!

During my recent stroll through Holt Renfrew, these amazing shoes stopped me in my tracks!

Christian Louboutin Isolde 160mm Nude Patent Leather Spiked Strappy Platform Pumps

I can't say I was not intimidated by them. This is the foot armor of glamazons. If I were to go into battle, these would be part of my protective gear. My enemies would be blinded by the glare created by these beauties! Or they will be too intimidated at the sight of such fierce creation and cower immediately.

Of course, to show I really mean business, the soles have already been stained red from all the battles won.

In the future, I imagine war would be fought with psychic abilities. I would be levitating to meet my enemies because I highly doubt I would be able to walk, let alone run in these.
