Work outfits of the day

Instagram is saving me these days. Oh, feel free to follow me on Instagram under PoserSeries. I would be oh so happy.

Step aside DSLR, looks like my unexpected iPhone is earning its keep quite fast.

Here are my work outfits captured by my palm sized super machine.

aritzia top from twice loved, versace for h&m logo skirt, funky tights, gucci purse, work outfit, spring outfit

I love this outfit. Since I bought the skirt I have not worn it because it is a little hard to style. But it worked really well with these pieces since it shows off the skirt perfectly.

Outfit: Aritzia top from Twice Loved

Gucci purse

romwe high low skirt and romwe tights, romwe, forever21 top, aritzia cardigan

I did not originally wear this skirt to work. The package of the skirt and tights et. al. arrived on that same day.

When I got to work, I realize they went amazingly well with the rest of my outfit and voila.

Outfit: hi lo skirt from this post tights
Forever21 top, old
Aritzia cardigan, old

Finally, we have what I cm wearing today.

obakki sheer silk shirt, bcbgeneration necklace

Today is probably the only day that I am dressed in a traditional business casual outfit. Since the rest of the outfit is not super exciting, I chose to showcase this necklace.

From BCBGeneration collection, it is absolutely amazing. I love the drama it adds to a plain outfit.

Almost the weekend. It's going to be sunny tomorrow, hope you all will have a chance to enjoy it.

A Little 40's, Fur and Velvet and Versace

'Tis the time for festive parties.

In addition to the hustle and bustle of end of year celebrations, my favourite thing about this time of the year is parties. Getting dressed to impress and set out on the town.

This year, I am channeling the 40's. Starting with this lovely leading lady on the silver screen.

From her inspiration, I have conjured up this outfit.

Velvet gown from Le Chateau, a while ago
Choker from Versace for H&M collection, recent
Fur Shawl from Talize

I love the silhouette of a full length gown. It has such understated elegance, yet it makes a big statement.

In addition to that extra sparkle of the Versace for H&M logo choker. Adds just the right amount of glitter. Not over powering but enhances the whole look.

I love my hair. The owner of Impulse Hair and Nail Salon is a friend of mine from highschool. She is meticulous and skillful. I have never left feeling disappointed. Any special occasion, if possible, I will always seek her magic.

The finishing touch has to be this beautiful vintage fur shawl.

Again, Talize comes through. This is one of my most prized finds from there.

Now I am ready to set out on the town.

But wait, this joyous occasion cannot be complete without my true companion. He's featured in the "About" page. Not only is he an instrumental part of this site, he is also my one and only. I feel truly blessed to have him by my side.

On him, Zara Euro cut silver suit. Best part, it was on sale.
Calvin Klein dress shirt. It was also on sale from the Seattle Premium Outlets.
Brown loafers from Nordstrom Rack.
Proving that men can look great on a budget as well
The trick though, is tailoring.

Hope everyone is having a festive party season.

Luck be a Versace

Trolling does pay off!!

Side note, Happy American Thanksgiving our neighbours down south.

I was somewhat disappointed after the 19th when all I could get were these babies.

In the end I decided not to keep them. Small chance I will be wearing them very often.

As luck would have it, yesterday turned out to be a great day!

As luck would have it again, yesterday was also my day off.
After I got dressed and posed for pictures thrice, I was ready to head out the door.

Outfit of the day

Vintage silver embroidered Noidiasolo shirt, made in Italy. From Salvation Army Thrift Store, New West Location

Forever21 leopard leggings. More leggings can be found here

Black faux shearling boots, similar ones can be found here

I absolutely love this top! It overwhelmed me the first time I put it on, but it quickly grew on me. I also have a incredibly difficult time refusing a thrift find.

Bows make me so happy

Since it is cold out, I donned on my down jacket and some awesome ear muffs, I was really ready to head out the door.

Flowers tickle my soul, especially when they can also keep my ears warm

The stroll to H&M was quite nice. The brisk air was nice to breath in. I did not mind it at all since my ears are kept very cozy.

I really did have the intentions to just do the refund. Until...

The next moments blurred really. I was over taken by excitement!! I think I tried on some heels and they kinda of killed my feet. But maybe I should just show you.

What's this, a shopping bag? Whatever could be in there?

There she is, a thing of beauty.  The only item on my want list from the previous post I was able to get my hands on. I can't believe someone would return this. And I cannot believe it didn't get snatched up yet!
Let's see a family photo of my haul.

A Tale of Two Tent Cities: Versace for HM vs. Occupy Vancouver

To quote Dicksens, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair" This quote could not have set the tone better for this post.

I am playing journalist today.

The Versace for H&M collaboration launched at the Vancouver Pacific Centre store November 19th 8am. The queue to shop started much earlier outside on the cold, mean streets.

Fashion die-hards and eBay opportunists brave the cold and started to occupy H&M 12hrs before the launch.

Wait, what say you? It was much longer than 12 hours? Apparently, the line started to form as early as 4:00pm the afternoon before!!  Well I say, good on ya, you fashion soldiers of fortune.  May your opportunistic spirit guide you to prosperity.

So who are you pitching a tent for these days?

Occupy Vancouver vs. Versace for H&M

We live what seems like the worst of times, and the best of times.

Here we see the occupy Vancouver tent city protesting the 1%. And down the street we have the fashion die-hards feeding the 1%.

Tent City Locations

One tent city is filled with people that struggles to have their basic needs met in this is the winter of despair and beyond, while the other one is filled with people that struggle to get their superfluous wants met, what lies ahead for them is the spring of hope.

Seems like these days, if you believe in something, you have to show your faith by pitching a tent for it.

I pitch my tent for street style.

Everything else from Talize

I would be more inclined to listen to the dwellers of Tent-city if they had a clear and concise message.

Occupy Vancouver Signs, Signs, Occupy Vancouver

I find the one that proclaims "what is our one demand CHANGE" particularly familiar.  I get asked that every time I walk around downtown Vancouver.

But instead, the protest is convoluted and directionless. Who are you really angry at? Do you really have a bone to pick with the "1%" that worked hard for their money. Not only that, they are also the job creators. Through their wealth, they give other people an opportunity to also become wealthy, or at least, meet their means. Perhaps it's time to do some self reflection? There are no handouts. If you don't want to be pitching a tent in the cold mean streets then do something about it. Stop complaining about your situation as if the world owes you. If your desire is to be coddled then move to a socialist country. Or, how about this concept? Get a job?!?!? Or is serving your capitalist overlords an equivalent of a “fashion don't”? But I digress; at least we know exactly why the people outside H&M were pitching their tent for.

This amazing collection.

Thus my support lies with these people. Your persistence and numbed body parts will not be for nothing. I would have joined you if I did not have to fulfill my obligations to my 1% the next day.

Items are already popping up on eBay. The leather goods especially are being sold for double.

Behind the glass lie the coveted treasures.

The coveted treasures

But alas I am kept on the other side, peering and pining.

Glass is oppressive


What is this? A Versace shopping bag you say?

I couldn't let this go without at least visiting the store. When I got there, this is all that is left of the carnage.

The carnage

And the left over stock is rapidly depleting as well. So I snatched up this little number.

Spring of hope

Upon initial inspection, she's proven to be a challenge. However, I will best her and absorb her as part of my wardrobe!  But if not, I have 14 days to get my money back.

Or... will trolling H&M in the coming days be fruitful?
