Open design

I wish I were more of a do-it-myselfer. I really do. If I were an extremely capable one, I just might take advantage of Ronen Kadushin’s open design concept.

The German designer has published designs for pieces like this on his site.

You can download his designs and, if you like, modify them.

It’s all in the name of sharing creativity. (Thank you, Melissa, for sharing yours.)

Like a blushing zebra

This outfit is black and white and red all over.

This vintage skirt was quite a find (I love pleats).

I also love imagining the original owner of my vintage pieces. This one seems like it could have belonged to a detective back when people smoked at work. What do you think?

What can I say, I’m a superfan

Phoenix just released the video for Lisztomania and it really makes me want to see them live.

Will you come to Vancouver, Phoenix? Pretty please?

Two of my favourite things

Design*Sponge (one of the best interior design blogs out there) + The Cross (hands down my favourite decor store in Vancouver, which is also where I found my beautiful mirror) = a very interesting interview.

Travelin’ To-orist

Guest posts are the best posts (especially when they’re about romance, recycling and Romanelli hats). This one is from my sister-in-law Jaclyn.

I’ll be in London this June and plan to scour the streets for Kenyan-born Brian Gathii’s To-orist line filled with safari-inspired streetwear.

Think: Prince meets Kanye meets… King Tut?

With bold colours and edgy appliques each piece is perfectly prismatic.

At work, it’s a shirt

On the beach in Barcelona, it’s a dress. I love a good shirt/dress. So versatile.

And then there’s my amethyst cuff, which is always an amethyst cuff.

Forget diamonds, I think coloured stones are a girl’s best friend.

A true snow baby

If you asked Leroy, he’d probably tell you Whistler is his new favourite place.

Much of it, like Lost Lake, is still covered in snow. And so, so beautiful.

He spent forever running and digging and having the time of his life. Right up until a cranky old corgie ruined his fun.

What is it about the snow that’s just so, so much fun?
