Vintage Armani Jacket

Another absolute must for the fall season is a great wool jacket. It's even better when it can multitask as a blazer as well.

No one captures moments like Iulia Agnew. I love these photos.

The jacket is also for sale in the Paint a Dress Etsy Shop.

Esta Bien - Summer Fashion Art

This week's hump day treat will be some amazing photography to show case some cute summer outfits.

I always get enchanted by the end product of what a photographer produces.

Her artistry at capturing the mood and my outfits is absolutely breath taking.

This girly soft outfit is perfectly captured through her artistic vision. The juxtaposition of the outfit and the forest is almost poetic.

This next outfit is one of my favourite! I have a weakness for maxi dresses and skirts that's coded into my genes.  If I could I would wear this every day.

Paint a Blazer

The rain has returned in Vancouver. Looks like the brief taste of summer is yet again a false start.

I will take this opportunity to introduce two more transition pieces that could carry you from spring into summer.

From the amazing shop Paint a Dress.

Fall colors Statement Blazer.

Even though it looks more harvesty, I still think it can work in spring and summer.

Silent All These Years

Happy Tuesday.

I have some great news to share soon. Hence I juxtaposed the post with a slightly somber tone. Hope you enjoy :)

Today's airy fairy dreamy look is brought to you again by the talented Iulia Agnew Photography and Agnew Makeup Artistry.

I admire how Iulia transforms me via the magic of her lens, with the skilled brush stroke of Agnew Makeup Artistry, the out come is simply sublime.

Their craft is truly inspiring. The adequately fit the feeling, I have borrowed words from Oscar Wilde

Silentium Amoris (The Silence of Love)

Vintage night gown, gold accent bralet, vintage style, posing in vintage, iulia agnew photography, Agnew Makeup Artistry, floral crown, eco fashion, eco style, upcycle fashion

As often-times the too resplendent sun
Hurries the pallid and reluctant moon
Back to her sombre cave, ere she hath won
A single ballad from the nightingale,
So doth thy Beauty make my lips to fail,
And all my sweetest singing out of tune.

And as at dawn across the level mead
On wings impetuous some wind will come,
And with its too harsh kisses break the reed
Which was its only instrument of song,
So my too stormy passions work me wrong,
And for excess of Love my Love is dumb.

Vintage night gown, gold accent bralet, vintage style, posing in vintage, iulia agnew photography, Agnew Makeup Artistry, floral crown, eco fashion, eco style, upcycle fashion

But surely unto Thee mine eyes did show
Why I am silent, and my lute unstrung;
Else it were better we should part, and go,
Thou to some lips of sweeter melody,
And I to nurse the barren memory
Of unkissed kisses, and songs never sung.

Swimco Packing for Paradise

It's officially the first day of Spring! Though it's no surprise that Vancouver has decided to welcome it with some stormy precipitation.

However, the event I attended last week organized by Brookline Public Relations, Inc. was perfect for the first day of Spring.

The Swimco Packing for Paradise event couldn't have come at a better time.

I am heading to paradise in the form of Dominican Republic in May.

The event kick started my spring with a fresh fashion show showing off some fun spring trends. As well, we were fed by Season's Catering and pampered by Posh Digits Nail Salon and Manifesto Lifestyle Salon.

We had so much fun.

I was parched when I arrived and these came in handy.

Then hunger kicked in and was sated by these delicious treats.

I love events that pays such attention to detail and coordinate other facets so seamlessly into the theme of the event.

Check out these great Packing Rules

Top 10 Packing Rules


Weekend getaway? A cruise? A few weeks at your favorite beach? No matter, follow these steps to get you & your stuff where you’re going.
Packing Rule #1 For attire, versatility is boss. If you can’t wear it on more than one occasion, don’t bring it.
Packing Rule #2 No matter the reason for your trip, it’s always a good idea to lay out your outfits before you start to fill your suitcase and decide what you’ll need & what you’ll wear with what. Remember the versatility rule, choose items you can wear with variety.
Packing Rule #3 Fold your clothes the retail way (or some people prefer to roll them)- this makes everything the same size so you get neat stacks.
Packing Rule #4 Avoid bulky clothing or items that take up a lot of room.
Packing Rule #5 Get yourself a double sided, zippered cosmetic travel bag that meets your needs. Always have it stocked with travel sizes of your facial routine, a small assortment of Q-tips, cotton balls, bobby pins, lip balm, etc. Restock when you’re unpacking and you’ll never have to worry about it.
Packing Rule #6 Take some time to check that all caps, lids, flip-tops are all securely closed, tightened or snapped shut. If it doesn’t snap or close tightly, you may have a mess to deal with.
Packing Rule #7 Use the pockets of your suitcase for things which don’t lie flat: swimsuits, crushable hats, underwear, bras, hairbrush, footwear and socks.
Packing Rule #8 Pack shoes last, sole up & wear your biggest shoes on the plane – you’ll save space in your luggage.
Packing Rule #9 Making the most of your carry-on. No one plans to lose their luggage but it can and does happen. Your carry-on is for the stuff you need until your luggage arrives: your swimsuit, electronic devices (cords & chargers too), any reading material or paperwork you may need for your trip, prescription medication, and if you wear contact lenses, keep your glasses & lens case in your carry-on.
Packing Rule #10 If you’re going to Europe or other spots abroad, remember you may need an electrical adapter.

Then the much anticipated fashion show kicked off.

Here are my favourite pieces from the show.

Swimco packing for paradise event fashion show, Blue checkered tankini from swimco

I never thought I was a tankini person, but on those days were you are feeling less than fabulous, this perfect piece offers the right amount of coverage while still preserving a sexy silhouette.

The next piece is my ABSOLUTE favourite!

Swimco packing for paradise event fashion show, Black fringe scrunch bum bikini from swimco

What's not to love in this fringe and scrunch bum combination. Once upon a time the scrunch bum biniki was reserved for Miami boutiques or can only be ordered online. I am so excited to see it being adopted far and wide. That is seriously the most flattering cut for bikini bottoms. It doesn't cut in at all, only flatters that bum you have been working so hard to show off.

The fringe on top just rounds off the entire outfit. Coachella anyone?

After the fashion show I was able to get some great make up and hair tips from Manifesto Lifestyle Salon that is very applicable to my upcoming trip.

The tip is to keep the face light and fresh with muted colours. At night, glam things up a bit with more shadow and that's all you need to go from day to night when you're on vacation.

I was quite excite to get some hair tips.

When it comes to hair it is all products and braids. To keep your hair easy and beach, section your hair off into four section and make some loose braids when your hair is damp. After your hair dries, you will have some loose tossled waves. Spray on some sunscreen for your hair and you're ready to go.

I wish I didn't just do my nails the night before. The ladies at Posh Digits Nail Salon can do a mean manicure. Plus those are very beautiful mystery hands.

I can't wait to use all the tips I have learned on my trip. I hope you can apply them too on your trips.

I think I dressed to part with my body suit and spiked bra. Don't you?

If I were to have one one-piece, this one would be it.

Is it May yet? Not yet? Well, I see many of these in my future.

Eastside Flea March 2013 Recap

Follow on Bloglovin

I have discovered yet another treasure in this town.

The Eatside Flea. Held at 1882 Adnac Street The Wise Hall, it is a wonderful monthly occurrence.

Eastside Flea in Vancouver BC, Things to do in Vancouver, Vancouver, Event, Flea market, vintage shopping

On the set date, The Wise Hall transforms into a flea market in the best of ways. Vintage dealers, craftsman and antique hunters fill the space with the most amazing treasures.

One of my favourite vintage clothing picker duo had some of their amazing pieces at the Eastside Flea.

These ladies have the perfect eye for fashion, check them out at Hey Jude.

I hope they will be at the next market too.

My favourite discovery from the market are these guys. Rescued Relics.

This amazing team saves vintage furniture and other amazing items from the landfill and give them an opportunity to have a second perhaps third life.

I found the most amazing cowboy boots from them.

I can't wait to see what else they would bring to future events. It's situations like this that makes me want my own place to decorate as I please.
