in love with a vintage coat

Here in Vancouver you can never have too many pairs of boots or warm winter coats. I found this cocoon coat at Front & Co. on Main Street a few weeks ago and absolutely love it! The cocoon shape is unlike anything else in my wardrobe & I feel so vintage glam everytime I wear it. I tested out some purple lipstick this time. Lip colour is my new obsession!

The shape of the coat is much like this one Rachel Zoe is rocking...I die!



falling over

These are some old photos from October on a lazy Sunday. I mixed some plaid & rugged boots with a shrunken jacket & black tights.

This extremely cold weather means fall is ending and winter is almost here! A small part of me is excited for some snow, it makes for such a romantic atmosphere.


birthday celebrations

I bought this dress back in August and justified my purchase by saying I'd save it until my birthday. There was one close call when I insisted I had absolutely NOTHING else to wear except this dress, but I kept my promise and saved it for such a special occasion. I can't stand scrambling around shopping for "the perfect dress". It was so much easier having one all ready to go in my closet!

The dress is from Barefoot Contessa (Main St & Commercial Drive) paired with red lips, dark purple nails, simple diamond earrings, & a butterfly ring from Forever 21. The next time you want to go out dancing in Vancouver, I highly recommend Fortune Sound Club. It is a great venue...exactly the kind of club this city was in desperate need of.

It remains a mystery why alcohol makes me think that making ridiculous faces will translate well in photos?!


aliciafashionista loves coco

Last night I went to see Coco Avant Chanel and was completely inspired to "channel my inner Chanel". I took my outfit today back to basics in a black dress, flat shoes, and classic pearls. Now if only I could wear this in Paris!

I look forward to hearing from you,
