Daytime To Partytime: Midi Skirt/Crop Top



 
 LOCATION: SUNSHINE COAST, BC
   
 
Day-to-night, in seasonal fashion.

Hello everybody! I haven't posted in nearly a month, which you've surely noticed if you follow my blog, and since I usually post several times a week I feel SOOO guilty. Truth is, guys, I've been surviving without solid internet access since end of November (please don't ask me to repeat it). So, to make up for it, I put together a really good post that is super easy to recreate and essentially includes two outfits. Now how about that? I've got a daytime outfit, perfect for work, school, or just walking around town, and then an accessory swap -- tada!! You've got an ensemble just right for partying or dancing, for a dinner party, a little get-together, or a chic holiday bash.

Reinventing Summer Staples: Here Comes The Rain Again

 
 LOCATION: VANCOUVER, BC
   
 
Falling on my head like a memory...


I feel sorry for people who have to drive on rainy days. They don't get to splash their boots in puddles or hear the rain dripping on their umbrellas. They don't get to smell wet wood, or smile at fellow raingear-wearing pedestrians. They don't get to have their hair pouf up into a great cloud because of the humidity (okay, kidding about that one). Also, they don't get to see the rain as something beautiful and special -- it's just another obstacle instead of something to enjoy (and if we lived in California, they might; a perk of living in the rainforest is that there are no droughts). Although the rain can be miserable, there is something so comfortable about it. It makes me feel cozy and sleepy and appreciative of the world.

Reinventing Summer Staples: Microfloral and Megafloral


 
 LOCATION: VANCOUVER, BC
   
 
Don't donate that sundress just yet.


I'm sure everyone has summer dresses. And I bet most people have those few dresses that we keep even though they're WAY too short to be considered decent unless they're used as a beach cover-up, or worn over shorts, or worn only on really hot days when everyone's too heat-stricken to care. I have one of those, and I keep it for two reasons: a) it fits really well, the length exempt, and the print works well and the color matches my eyes; b) I don't ever give clothes away unless I'm positive I can't wear them anymore, and I wasn't so sure about this dress...

 LOCATION: OKANAGAN, BC
   
 
I challenge you all.


Hello guys! Today I'm sharing something really cool: a challenge. I was subjected to this challenge, and since it's brand new, we tweaked the rules a bit until we had a perfect project.

Personal Style: Crop Tops For Fall



 
 LOCATION: VANCOUVER, BC
   
 
A black denim skirt is classy, versatile, and a great addition to any wardrobe.


Hey everybody! Happy October! I hope you haven't given up on me quite yet, cause I'm back and better than ever...so, it's been three weeks. But guess what, I've had a life experience!! I've been off working with Team Generous Canada 2014 to put together a short film for Habitat for Humanity Canada (I was the social media handler, blogger, and photographer, and later on was part of the creative pipeline). For two solid weeks we worked to do this! So, naturally, after lots of work, I had to come home and design some clothing. I designed and made this denim midi skirt to wear to the film's premiere, which was last Saturday and I wanted to show it off!!
