how can you swallow so much sleep?


i wanna go for a night time walk. 
i mean not just walking from the car to some place.
i wanna go for an actual good long stroll. 
i'll just bundle up and make sure i'm warm.

i hope thursday's weather is good cuz then maybe i'll
stroll around stanley park and then maybe 
visit denman or robson or davies.

i have heaps of ideas. 
marie might be reading this, so 
i won't give all my ideas away.

i like surprises too. :)











did you know that magic
happens at dusk?


can i wake you up. 
can i wake you up. 

is it late enough. 
is it late enough. 

there's a story in which my eyes shut. 

could you bag me up. 
could you bag me up. 





ps- doesn't the top pic look like gastown? sigh. i luv it.

disco baby



rachel zoe's collection was hinting at the 70's. 
of course, 70's is her biggest influence in style.
and this season was no exception. 

i'm really into her alluding to the 
mick jagger and marianne faithfull look.
(late 60's.)

the casual drape of a fur coat on the shoulders
and fitted pantsuits are grabbing me. something about
a finely tailored pantsuit makes me think of refinement.












and as always, all white is ALWAYS 
chic, pure and refined.

when in doubt wear white.


my baby's momma



well, i mean, i'm an auntie to my best friend's baby...
(super excited to be an auntie 3 times na!)

and she hadn't been out for "2 years," 
so i took stef and sanders out to gastown.

i showed them my hood at diamond
and then sauntered on over next door to 
salt tasting room in blood alley.











yep, stef had a blast last nite. 
i'm glad. she needed it.

we ended the nite off at red room. 
(it was stef's choice. salsa all the way for her!)
and boy was that crazy. i forgot about that place.
sorry no pics for you from there. ;)

arm party


arm party:
as copyrighted by 

to wear heaps and heaps of jewelry 
on the arms to display its prettiness.

of jewelry and accessories!!!

from my great grandma and grandma, 
my bracelets and man's tortoise watch from ASOS, 
and my coral amulet from bali. or else...

more more more




yes please.



anonymously chic


well not quite anonymous anymore...

mary-kate and ashley olsen's new younger line:
ELIZABETH AND JAMES.
are you surprised? i'm not. 

especially after adoring their older and more
expensive line THE ROW to follow below.

they've always been so fashionably adept
in style and labels. they know how to be trendy 
and classy at different times and places.






ph: elizabeth and james fall 2012


i find this line would be so much easier
for me to wear than THE ROW.

the first 2 looks are downtown chic, 
whereas the last 2 looks are tailored chic.

the first look is so do-able.
a long white shirt paired underneath
a trench coat wrapped in a blazer or vest.
done.

ph: the row fall 2012



mmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
i'm actually saying 'mmmmm' like i'm savouring 
a good bowl of soup. i know. but really.

but how perfect is this collection?
i luv neutrals, not only for fall, but
for anytime of year. 

the way the fabric drapes and caresses the body.
