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?
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?
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?
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.

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.
Throw a party with lots of wine and lots of cheese.
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?
Both, interestingly enough, with some bright blue and neon orange.
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.
