Vancouver Fasion Week SS2014 Highlights

Sorry for being slight MIA the last couple of days. I was involved with a very meaningful fundraising fashion show and attended a dear friend's wedding.



Even though this is a massive late pass, I still want to share with you the two designers I really liked from Vancouver Fashion Week.

Captured by the talented Kuna Lu, KunaPhotography, let's take a journey.

First we have Noe Bernacelli from day four. His luxe gowns and polished office looks are focused on celebrating the feminine figure.

I love it.


My absolute favourite collection on creative merit alone is from Dandi Wind Opaine.

She blew me away. Her theatrical production may not to ready to wear, but it is definitely ready to wow.

Let's get wowed.


Dandi is also going to be taking part in the Thrift Chic Challenge at Eco Fashion Week 07. Can't wait to see what she can bring with a $500 budget from Value Village.

Vintage Floral Maxi Skirt and Aztec Short Shorts

This is my second fall outfit created based upon the Aztec shorts and leather crop top from Necessary Clothing.

I actually discovered this layering method by accident. To be honest, even with the tights from last post I still think it to exposed. Hence I added the skirt over it to cover my derriere.

But I didn't want to cover up the fantastic Aztec print. Good thing this skirt unbuttons completely. Which made it such an amazing waist cape.

I love throwing together a bunch of random colors and patterns. Maybe sometimes I do want to wear everything in my closet at once.


I also really love mixing thrifted vintage items with new trends for a unique combination. The feather necklace and my shoes are both from Used House of Vintage. The skirt is thrifted from Value Village. Paired with the same two Necessary Clothing items.

I hope I have inspired you to try pairing some unusual pieces together, as well as marrying the old and new.
