I got this jacket at the S.O.S in Parksville for $5 about 6 years ago. I simply had it dry clean and had the sleeves let out. It was one of my best finds ever! I got this vintage gloves for Christmas '06 from my friend Dusty with a vintage handbag that if I had been thinking I would have used today!
Hope everyone else is enjoying the snow!
Sorry its been so long since I lasted posted. I've been sick and busy so I just wasn't feeling very creative. I had planned for a long post today but have been called into work. Damn Snow! So I thought a quick post just to let you know I'm alive.
I have exciting news.....I bought my first Betsey Johnson Dress. For those of you who don't know she is my favorite designer. Her dresses are to dead for but I have never been able to afford one. She was having a 75% off sale and I got this dress for $125.00!!! I have not worn it yet and it is waiting in my closet for that special moment! So here are pictures and when I offically wear it I will post about it again. I LOVE IT!!! Enjoy.
And with that I am off to work. Cheers for now!

They had a dj playing, yes this store has a dj booth in it, and they had a by donation cash bar. The dj was play a great mix of music, I was really enjoying it. At one point I caught myself dancing to the tunes. This store usually has a dj playing whenever they are opeing, even if its just a store employee rock the tunes.
Stylewise there was a definite theme: Scenester. I for one am not Scenester, so yes I stuck out. I'm fine with that as to me that is the thing with personal style. I look how I want to look and other look how they want to look. I may not always think its good but when two people can take the same shirt and wear it in two totally different ways that impresses me. So last night it seemed like I take the clothes from EL KARTEL and wear them in a totally different way then most who shop there.
I got a shot of my outfit before I left the house. I decided that is I was going to go to this I should rock something I bought there recently. I got this top there about 2 weeks ago for 75% off. It was a great deal. I wore this vintage purple pumps that found at a thrift store for $5 to pull out the purple in the shirt. What can I say I am not nor never will be scenester and I am fine with that. I'm a little more glam chic. Now these two on the other hand.
These two are much more scenester or are atleast trying to be. I would alhtso like to point out that I personally think there is no way these two are old enough to drink but thats beside the point. Is it just me or there a scencester uniform: Crazy Kicks, SKINNY tight jeans, and a bunch of layers or hoodie on top.
This is Devin, I guy I used to work in film. He was there to do some professional photo taking. He was looking good too. I like how the yellow of the shirt is echoed in the kicks. I am extremely jealous of Devin as he is off to New York to take picture for Issey Miyake's spring show at Fashion Week! Check out his website at http://www.gexfilms.com/ Hopefully he'll post the photos he takes at Fashion Week as soon as he takes them!
My man know more than most men do about sneakers. He was very impressed with the array of kicks out last night. These classic Reeboks he figures must be custom as they never came in this color orginally
I personally really liked these one. I just think there fun. All in all it was a great night and I urge all of you to check out this store. EL KARTEL 121A-1025 Robson St. Directly below Tsunami Sushi(also a great places for good sushi) Hope you all had a great weekend I know I sure did. Cheers till later.

I love this hat because I got it from an old man at my church when I was 15. It has great personal value.
Also I stole this vest from the dress up box at my parents house. Some things are too good to be worn only as a costume!
Hat: Thanks John...miss you:)
Vest: Dress up boxTee: Jacob
Jeans: Shank (remixd)
Sneakers: Converse All Stars
Jacket (on bed): got it in Hong Kong
Bag (on bed): Aldo
This is a close up of the brooch on my vest. My friend Taryn got it for me when she was in New York for Christmas last year. I just love it. It lives on this vest so I always know where it is.
I put another brooch on the back of the vest as it was a little too baggy for my taste without it. I got the brooch from my Grandmother who lives in Switzerland. It is an edelweiss, which if I am not mistaken is their national flower.
Well I'm off to look at an apartment then to a white wine seminar. Should be fun. Cheers!
Jessica Simpson is one lucky girl! http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20171963,00.html Check it out.
So for those of you who live in Vancouver make sure to get a copy of the February issue of Yaletown Magazine. Yours truly will be in the photo spread for Valentine's Day! I am very excited as I think the picture are going to be amazing! Look for it!
I just got this sweater at the Gap and I love it. Which for anyone who knows me is odd. I totally dislike the Gap as normally nothing in there fits me so I just avoid it. Looks like I may have to start going in more often. Cheers till later!

Here is the outfit without my jacket on but we all know a bad jacket can ruin an outfit so I post that picture too. I got this shirt on sale for $14.00 by Zachary's Smile. Can you believe that! I would tell you where but its way too good of a source to share with just anyone. Only problem with this outfit is the shoes. They are from Army and Navy and are super cute but so uncomfortable. In fact I may never leave the house in them again.
This saturday my boyfriend and I went to the Michael Buble concert at GM Place here in Vancouver. For those of you who don't know Michael Buble is a hometown boy. It was sold out and packed. We Canadians love to support our own and as he is from Vancouver you can imagine the cheering was out of control. Well it was well deserved. He put on a hell of a show. I loved it!
Now us two got pretty dressed up for the concert. I mean the music is very big band, Frank Sinatra. I was very disappointed by the lack of other people who felt the same. I was hoping to see a dressed up side of Vancouver. Even a button up with jeans would have been nice. Most people were dressed as if they were going to a hockey game. I even saw a few pairs of sweatpants. I know you want to be comfortable but every once in a while you have to step it up a notch and the Michael Buble concert was one of those moments.

Last night's outfit for dancing at Bar None. Had a great time with some of the girls from work, my man and his friend. It was great and I was really glad I was wearing flat when we decided to walk home at 2 in the morning! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

I saw this girl on my way into the theatre and I had to get her photo. I love all the red. Its so interesting that the detail can make or break an outfit. I love how the red gloves match the little bit of red on her shoes. I was very impressed by the fact that she is this nicely put together for a late show movie on a sunday. Nice not to be the only one.
