Light at the end of Rain

It has been raining none stop for the past week.

With the spring time change pending, I can finally look forward to more sun.

Luckily, the last two days has been giving us a taste of what it would be like to live in California, minus the cold.

Finally kind of warm enough to just wear a leather jacket. But any chance to wear my Margiela for H&M is a chance I will take.

This morning I almost forgot what day it is. Alas it's Monday, happy start of week everyone. My brain is fried so I am going to sign out now.

SmartBuyGlasses Provides Smart Fashion

Our eyes are our best asset.

I am about to go super cheesy in one second. The eyes after all are the windows of our souls. (Go ahead, laugh, I did too while typing that line).

But I do believe it though.

These days, many people are making sure that eyes are unobstructed from view by getting rid of glasses with contact lenses or surgery.

I have never needed eyeglasses, but I have always admired the way they look on faces. It is the perfect framing item to bring out your eyes with very little effort.

Especially these days when there are countless options, styles and colours. SmartbuyGlasses has a huge selection of designer glasses.

I actually like myself in glasses.

It instantly adds something to my face that make-up can never do.

For certain outfits, it definitely calls for some spectacles.

I would like to challenge the style envelope and really bring glasses to the glamorous world.

One of my favourite designers also makes some fierce glasses.

I picked two Balenciaga pairs and went to town.

These Ombre Balenciaga in Doe inspired the perfect light outfit.

Both of those outfits can easily go from day to night, from fun to formal. Much like the versatility glasses also offer.

As the holiday party season is approaching, why not look at those lenses as accessories and not burdens?

Next time when you are playing dress up, don't forget to also dress up your face.

Thrift Pieces for Guys and Girls

Seems like awhile since I have thrifted.

The online retailing world was lured me away from my roots. It's the daily bombardment of emails and ads and facebook feeds.

But one trip is all it takes to remind me of why I fell in love with the sport of thrifting in the first place.

There is little that is more satisfying than finding that seriously amazing piece of treasure that countless people have passed up on and knowing that I have paid next to nothing for it. Oh, and part of that money I spend goes towards a charitable cause. Plus it's eco fashion. Oh the benefits! Why did I ever stop?

This haul is not as big as some of my previous ones, but it's safe to say I love all of the items. Michael came with me again, and he found some amazing pieces, too.

Gentlemen first.

He didn't make out with too much, but they are all great items.

Benetton corduroy slim fit, guess sweater, navy striped hoodie, thrifted finds, men's fashion

My favourite item would have to be those United Colors of Benetton slim fit corduroys.

That is until these amazing Florsheim wing tips.

Thrifted wing tip Florsheim shoes, burgundy wing tip shoes, dress shoes, mens dress shoes, thrifted shoes

Effortlessly, they make a great casual pulled together outfit.

I highly encourage you to visit our local thrift shop. But if that is not your thing, here's where you can find these items online.

Similar hoodie here or here.

Same shoes here.

Similar corduroys here.

Here are my spoils.

color blocking dress, embroidered shrug, seafoam shirt, saphire blue shirt, thrifted items, fashion

Thrifted large cable knite sweaters in red blue and yellow, large sweaters, cable knit sweaters, thrift finds

I can't wait to style out these items.

I also got some shoes.

stuart weitzman shoes, brown loafers, vintage lady shoes from france, thrifted shoes

But my favourite item of the day would HAVE to be this vintage Danier leather jacket?

My iPhone white balance is whack, the piece is supposed to be the green color you see on the top right. It fits me like a glove! I definitely can't wait to style this one out.

Oh yeah, I got an oversized wool coat and a tribal print jacket as well.

Here's an impromptu outfit pulled from the items not individually photographed.

tribal jacket, striped shirt, black leggings, golden cowboy boots, thrifted style, outfit, fashion

Similar jacket here.
Similar shit here.
Similar cowboy boots here.

I hope you too would take some time out to do some of your own hunting. Now, go forth and prosper.

It's a long video, so thank you for your patience.

Much love.

One Purse, Three Outfits

As I mentioned in my last post, I wore my LV multicolour Sologne with all my outfits last week.

Unfortunately, I was not able to capture all the outfits because the elevator has been wrapped with moving padding, and I don't always have access to that giant mirror.

But, I did capture three.

Monday

Vintage shirt from the Fair boutque in Vancouver, Indigo sari scarf from Talize, floral maxi 90's skirt from the Fair, Vintage gold buckle shoes, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

Vintage blush colour crop top from The Fair. See here for similar.
Floral 90's maxi skirt, if my mom was more feminine I could probably find something like this in her closet, but alas, I have to find it in a vintage section of a shop, similar
I really like the bright rich hue of the sari scarf, it really stands out compared to the redder tones of the rest of the outfit, but I think that's why I like it so much, similar

Tuesday

Orange infinity scarf from talize, floral jacket from Talize, yellow shirt from Wildlife vintage, rock and republic jeans, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

Tuesday is casual day, the only time I would ever wear jeans.

The bright yellow top is definitely the center of attention here. I thrifted it from Wildlife thrift store but you can find a similar one here
To maximize on the brights, I also wore my new orange self made infinity scarf, you can find a similar but much more fun one here
Since floral is all the rage, though maybe on the way out and being replaced by pastels and neons, I decided to throw it over the whole thing, similar
Of course my jeans, just some basic skinny R&R's

The rest of the week has been pretty hectic. We went on a retreat to Whistler, great to see everyone let loose that's for sure.

Pandora came out with some new spring color charms. This aqua blue murano glass bead really caught my eye. I had to get it.

Now my charm bracelet is almost complete.

Saturday

Wholesale7 white hi lo skirt, chiffon skirt, tobi polka dotted back chiffon shirt, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

Wholesale7 white hi lo skirt, chiffon skirt, tobi polka dotted back chiffon shirt, Fashion, Outfit of the day, style, street style, how to wear, LV, Luis Vuitton Multicolor Sologne crossbody purse, vintage, thrift, funky

I really like this outfit! Just simple black and white, accompanied with my lovely multicolour. See, that purse goes with everything.

Top from Tobi, they no longer carry the same top, so see here for similar
Chiffon hi-lo hem skirt from Wholesale7, they charge an arm and leg for shipping to North America, so see here for similar.

Looking back though, it has been awhile since I wore a solid piece of overwhelming colour, well, not since this post. But I consider yellow a neutral anyway.

Have to bring some more colours in soon.

So, stay tuned.

Yellow on Yellow at the Port

Sometimes, an outfit is completely born by accident.

I usually mix my colours, evident in all my other posts.

But on one particular day, I just needed to quickly run out so I thru on my One Teaspoon yellow kimono and grabbed my Gucci and headed out. In my trusted elevator mirror, I was struck by how well the yellow and yellow worked together.

Thus, a new outfit is born. Accidentally.

The white lace, becomes the perfect pedestal to show off the brightness of the yellow.

I started to work in BC's oldest municipality recently. I love a location that is marred by history. Coming from a country with one of the oldest civilizations in the world, North America, by comparison seems like a baby.

Perhaps that's why I am drawn to things of vintage.

Since the setting feels so artistic, I have decided to put some artistic spins on my usual photos. Hope you all enjoy.
