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?

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.

So much cooler than a seating chart

Attended a wedding at the beautiful Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler yesterday. Loved everything from the mini cheesecakes to the bride’s red ballet flats, but especially loved that they used Ukrainian eggs to let guests know their table number.

Each hand-painted egg had a tag with a guest’s name and table number on it. If I had thought of something like that, I would have made my little Ukrainian mama so proud.

Leroy also loved them. Little thief.

Happy Easter! And congratulations again, Kirstin and David.

Two Mikes. Two shirts.

Both, interestingly enough, with some bright blue and neon orange.

custom shirt

The first is by the stylish Mike Lyall who silkscreened 6 0h 4 on it. (604 is Vancouver’s area code. 6 0h 4 just makes me laugh).

The second is by Michael Doehle (also the man behind this shirt) who collaborated with Jamie Bizness on this one-of-a-kind piece.

He gave it to our pal Dana as a parting gift (thanks for the photos Dana).

Do you know any other Mikes who could whip up some custom shirts? I want to expand my collection.

Why Ry guy is a fly guy

First, there’s his moustache, which he’s been rocking since Movember

Then there’s his bolo tie, which is tied with his bow tie for first place in the neckwear category.

And then there’s his bike. Which is just rad.

Finally: his hair. Which is well on its way to being Morrissey hair.

Ladies and gentlemen, I rest my case.

Born again gorgeous

This guest post is courtesy of Ashley, one of my very best friends in the whole wide  world.

In the beginning, there was the scarf. A gorgeous vintage scarf. And now it has become these amazing shoes.

Te Cesan shoes

Purchased at Te Casan in NYC (RIP), the broadway-dancer-wannabe-turned-sales-associate only had to utter the words “one of a kind” and I was sold.

Of course, it didn’t hurt that the proceeds from the scarf benefitted Oxfam, and that the line was designed specifically for Te Casan.
