Red Tide and Happy Canada Day


Red is definitely having it’s moment and there’s no better day than on Canada Day to showcase some of my favourite picks in this fire hydrant hue. This Alice + Olivia Boxy Shift Dress is very Bizou Bizou a la Megan on Mad Men. Speaking of mad, I’m crazy about mini purses and this red … Continue reading

Wish List: Full Length Gown


Hope everyone’s had a great start to 2012.  My first post after a short hiatus. This week, I’ve been dreaming about formal, black tie gowns.  It’s because I’m heading back to Hong Kong later this spring for my cousin’s wedding!  I’m really looking forward to visiting with family and friends, as well as shopping of … Continue reading

Champagne, Lace + Sequins

Alice + Olivia Hildy Lace Dress Feature Image

6 more sleeps until Christmas! Are you excited yet?  All my shopping is pretty much done – the only real thing left to do is to help make the turkey.  I’m quite happy to also report the mini tree and poinsettias  are still alive.  Maybe they will make it to see Santa after all. I … Continue reading

Vintage Velvet, Fushia Frock


I finally got a tripod! I’m so happy about that because it means I can take more hair whizzing, crazy angled, self-timed photos at my leisure.  There are some seriously funny outtakes as I tried to step around the tripod and run furiously back to strike a pose in four inch platforms.  Not exactly elegant.  … Continue reading

Getting Festive

Christmas Feature Image

Christmas has arrived in a small dose at my house  in the form of 2 tiny poinsettias and a micro cypress tree.   Being the Grinch that my hubby is, this is likely the most festive as it’ll get in my home.   Maybe I’ll sneak in and hang a stocking or two. I’m a notorious plant … Continue reading

Call me a magpie


I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for holiday style.  I can’t wait to get as sparkly as a Christmas tree.  Call me a magpie, but I’m obsessed with anything that sparkles with sequins, metallics, and glittery shine.

Dress Me Up

Alice + Olivia Blue Goddess Dress

Labour Day seems so long ago now, but I finally remembered to post this Alice + Olivia dress I wore to my friends Allie (of Vancity Allie) and Allan’s wedding when I was hunting on the A+O site for holiday dresses.  The wedding was set in beautiful Black Rock Resort in Ucluelet, and the couple … Continue reading

Back In the Classroom

Jason Matlo Dress Burberry Prorsum Green Clutch

Sadly, we are one week out from September and the Back-To-School season. I; however, was back to school a few weeks ago teaching a seminar on Facebook and Twitter at the SFU Continuing Studies Social Media Bootcamp.  It was a jam-packed day with 3 speakers including myself. For my return to the classroom, (I am … Continue reading

She Doesn’t Know What She’s Missing


There was a time when I thought shorties like me couldn’t pull off a summer maxi. I wanted a genie to make me taller so I could pull off that sweeping silhouette.  It all changed last summer when I bought this gorgeous printed pink maxi from a little town in Provence. Fast forward to summer … Continue reading
