Girls Night.


Not letting a bit of snowfall get in the way of a fun girl's night out! I still can't wait for warmer weather though... it's awfully constricting having to layer up on nights out grrr...

It can be tiresome to try on different outfits just to see what you can do with that shirt you've never really worn, those shorts with the tags still on, or those pair of harem pants that you just haven't had the right occasion to show off. But sometimes getting it on paper looks a whole lot different, and sometimes when laying down colour, it's an easier way to see what works and what doesn't. My sketch isn't necessarily for what I have in my closet, but something I want! A Laurence Kazar multicoloured sequined jacket. Laurence Kazar specialized mainly in womens clothing and his vintage pieces consist of mostly sequin and beading. The only way to show this detail is when I can show a picture first-hand (which I intend to do... soon!) Isn't it amazing how we can take a vintage piece, pair it with today's fashion and create to-die-for looks?

Who doesn't love looking forward to florals, sunshine, colour and albeit tons of rain? How fair is that when you have 3 months left of winter in a place where snow actually sticks to the ground and your city becomes practically barren outside work hours?
Since I'm looking forward to the aforementioned warmer things, I can't help but put some Spring in my step style! I'll be honest, a grande of Starbucks Pike Place may have something to do with my feeling less chilly, too :)

Hope you all are keeping warm somehow!


Anyone in fashion blogging has been on and is probably a fan of The Sartorialist. He is an amazing vision seeker of fashion and human form. He sees detail in the simplest of style, as well as picking up on trends, quality, fashion muses and all from everywhere in the world. You must see this to get a better idea.
So inspired!

At the start of a new year we all look back at what we've accomplished in the past one; how we've learned, lived, loved and perhaps lost. In retrospect, all these things make for a stronger and bolder year ahead for myself and daughter. I have loved and lost with no regret. I'm sure we have all been in that situation before and it hurts. But loving and losing the same person over and over? It takes guts to get out of that and say I'm worth more than that, and that other person needs some serious mental assessments :) 2011 has already started off with a bit of the crazies, but I hope this makes way for my return to my blog and all other things me.

We can't forget who we are, or get lost in other people.

On other notes, going to school for business marketing is a huge leap from my creative days! I'm looking forward to exploring a new field as well as making new acquaintances :)

Happy 2011 Everyone!
