Summer's Coming

With the heat wave Vancouver's been having lately, it seems that summer has already graced us with her presence.


With day light stretching long after I am off from work, there is much more time left for frolic.





Ever since I was little I have always loved swings. The perpetual ups and downs is ever so representative to life. The thrill that's felt at the top and a reminder that everything is cyclical.



Magical even, especially on a day like this, with light that makes everything seem almost translucent.



Even better, with loved ones.

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 whole outfit is either thrifted or from consignment stores.

Proves that fashion and style can be had at any price.

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...

Kiss of the Golden Sun

The weather gods have been extremely generous last week, until the weekend that is.

I still had enough time to go traipse around in my new maxi statement dress.

I have this dress in two colours.

I originally only knew of the dark version until I visited the websites that carried the dresses.

You can also get it here.

At the time, the dark version was only available in L, but the white version was available in all three sizes.

Knowing that the large may not fit as well as a medium and small I decided to order both dresses. The dark in a Large and the white in a Small and hoped for the best.

They both arrived super fast.

I am so glad I ordered them in both colours because even though they are the same dress, the colour difference dramatically changes the entire look.

I will do a side by side shoot in the future.

I love how this dress is short in the front, adding some sex appeal to a sweet print.

The only criticism I have is that I have to wear this dress with a belt. Perhaps it's the way it's cut, perhaps it's the shape of my body, if I don't cinch at the waist, the whole thing looks much more frumpy.

But my trusted flower belt from Gentille Alouette does the trick very well.

I also love clothing that takes on a life of their own when I move around.

The dress seem to be dancing with me.

The glow of the setting sun highlighting my outline makes my heart jump for the joy that it will be summer very soon.

That means, the dress can be worn without the accompaniment of these tights.

Who am I kidding, I will probably live in these tights through out summer.

Flowers

Where I come from, it is called the city of flowers. The mild weather all year round has made it an ideal place for plants to grow. Though I have since departed my birth place, but the flowers have always followed me.This time, it is in the form of this gorgeous dress from Gentille Alouette.

I practically live in cowboy boots. What a great way to wear something so masculine with something ever so feminine. This pair is vintage and a gift from a friend.

Gentille Alouette is a beautiful boutique in the historical Gastown of Vancouver, BC. I have passed by many times outside of their business hours. The window display is unique and captivating. I have always wanted to go in. Finally, during one of my trips wondering around town, I remembered that this little store is on Carrall street. The visit proved to be fruitful. Just my luck the owner, Eliza Lau, was in. Her taste matches mine almost exactly.

She has many unique feather accessories, as well as pieces designed by past participants of Project Runway Canada.

Well worth anyone's time of day.
