Mine and Yours Fashion Talks Blogger Event

Yesterday I co-hosted an intimate blogger gathering with Mine & Yours Co. A local buy, sell and trade fashion house that will open very soon. The inventory is curated from the closets of Vancouver's most fashionable. Many of the bloggers that are attending this event has sold their items to Mine & Yours. I love this concept and elevating eco fashion to the next level. All these items will be fashionable, and one of a kind gems are congregated to the same place.

The founder and I met in the ladies room at Eco Fashion Week 06 after my Thrift Chic Show.

Some connections are made effortlessly and meant to last.

Both of us love making connections and we decided to provide a good avenue for bloggers to connect and bond and net work.

Indulge 2013: the Art of Beauty

On June 4th, Holt Renfrew hosted the annual Arts Umbrella fundraising event, Indulge: the Art of Beauty. I could not think of a better place to have an event like this. An event celebrating the arts through the eyes of beauty and fashion. The guests decked themselves to the nines and enjoyed an evening of fashion, pampering and glamour. Hosted by Colleen Christy, news anchor from CTV, whom set the tone for the entire evening beautifully.
