Go Nucks!

For the past week I have been heckled (by my own mother) to post an outfit that incorporates the Canucks.

Herewith, my husband’s old school Canucks t-shirt (this logo is my favourite).

And a little sequin number I got at the antique fair.

How do you show your support for your home team? Do you actually, like, watch their games and stuff?

Success!

I went to an antique fair today with the intention of getting a bookshelf, a writing desk and a dresser. I found none of those things.

Instead, I found this little ditty.

It’s the perfect mix of Eastern Europe and the 80s, two things I love very much.

And it’s way cooler than a bookshelf. Funny how you can go looking for something and be perfectly happy you didn’t find it, isn’t it?

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.

When you finish an exam, there’s only one thing to do

Throw a party with lots of wine and lots of cheese.

peach tank top

Which is exactly what my friend Briony (the world’s hottest accountant) did.

She looked so cute in her thrifted tank top and Camper shoes.

Don’t you think?

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

ryan bolo tie

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.
