Posing in Vintage Hand-me-downs

When you keep things long enough, it's bound to come back into fashion.

Too bad when my family moved to Canada in 1996 my mom left most of her wardrobe back there.

Luckily I have wonderful friends and their mother's closets for me to pick through.

I am all about recycled fashion and ecostyle.

Recently, I am also all about neutrals. Perhaps my taste really is maturing with age.

This outfit is absolutely perfect for a lazy summer's day.

Even more perfect accented by my vintage Chanel pin collected over the last couple of years.

A tiny pop of colour with this vintage faberge egg necklace.

It's also the perfect canvass for this Lana Del Rey style sunglasses.

This entire outfit including most of the accessories is either thrifted, bought second hand or hand-me-down. It's much more fun creating, mixing and matching.

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.

Outfit: One Teaspoon mustard kimono

Thrifted shirt
Aritzia pleated skirt from Mine and Yours
Vintage loafers
Second hand Balenciaga purse

Trench Warfare

It's that time of the year where summer is just around the corner. The tease of the long days with everlasting sun. Yet it still can get chilly in the morning and evenings.

The solution for me is the prefect trench coats.

I have been searching for the perfect one for quite sometime now.

How lucky that I've found 2?

This camel beauty is a thrifted piece from Salvation Army.

This Only one with a more modern twist is from a recent rare mall trip I took.

I know the ease of use and versatility of these pieces.

I am always at a loss when it comes to choosing the property outer wear for transitional seasons.

Trench coats are so perfect and I am so happy to see more of them in the streets.
