Full Fashion Sunday

This Sunday was amazing and fashion filled. For most of the morning I hung out in my bed watching "Project Runway", season 8 and reading the newest Vogue with Anne Hathaway on the cover. Then I got all dolled up and headed over to the Hollywood Theatre in Kitsilano to watch Casablanca on the big screen. I had never seen it before which my friends think is crazy. A friend from work who loves the movie got all dressed up to see it with me. I had a great time talking fashion, movies, and such. If you have never been to the Hollywood Theatre you really should, its is beautiful and one of the oldest movie theatres in Canada.

After the movie, which I loved, I headed back downtown to the Orpheum to watch She and Him. They are a great band. Zooey Deschanel is so adorable and wears the cutest dresses, I would love to raid her closet! She also has a large voice for such a small person, a great set of pipes. Their opening band was also very talented, with great pipes. The Orpheum is also a beautiful venue one of my favourite places in the whole city.

I had thought I would change in between the movie and the concert but I love this dress so much that I just kept it on for the concert. It might have been a bit fancy, but I got a lot of nice complements on it which is always so nice to hear.

Last Sunday I woke up early and trekked my ass over to Jericho Beach to cheer my friend, Speed, across the finish line of her first event run. 10km in 57mins, super impressive, especially to me who can not run! I try, I swear but my lungs have other ideas. I even wish I could run, I think it would be a great way to clear ones head. So anyone who can run a lot is super human in my mind. I didn't mind getting up early either, the city is so pretty and quiet at 8:30am on a Sunday. I grabbed a coffee and jumped on the bus over to the finish line. So many people in pink, I failed to mention it was a Diva run. Afterwards we headed to Hamburger Mary's for a post run breakfast. Man, that place has great diner food. Here is what I wore:

Jacket: Winners, $60
Shirt: Joe Fresh, $12
Jeans: Just Jeans, $50
Toque: Mintage, $30
Scarf: Vintage, belonged to my great grandmother
Boots: Zara, $60
Sunglasses: Dressew, $5
Cuff: Value Village, $2

Check me out....

There was a ton of people taking pictures of all the fashion folks at the White Space Gala on Tuesday. Check out this post feature yours truly:

Friend Filled Thursday

Yesterday didn't seems like it was going to be anything big. Simply a lazy morning followed by a walk to work. After work I enjoy a couple beers at the bar with my friend Luke. We have joked about splitting an on special Heineken in 2 glasses for about 6 months now, and we both wussed out and couldn't even ask the bartender for one. After drinks I did a little swing through H&M, who is having some great sales right now. Dinner with Alex at Red Robin's, he had a couple for free onion rings and I refuse to pass up free food. Then some late night girl talk with my friend, Brittany at her place. I think she was just buttering me up with candy so I would watch her cat this weekend, it worked! All in all a nice night of friends.

When: Thursday Oct, 7, 2010

Where: Walking to work, beers at the bar after work with Luke, dinner at Red Robin's with Alex, and late night chitchat with Brittany.

What: Jean Jacket: Bootlegger, $60
Shirt: Winners, $20
Pants: H&M, $20
Shoes: Aldo, $60
Purse: H&M, $16

I bought these shoe about 3 summers ago, thinking I love these shoes but what will I wear them with. I wear them with everything, they are my go to shoe. They work with dresses, skirts, pants, everything! Thankfully I have an amazing shoe guy who is constantly telling me to take more cabs. I get every pair of shoes fixed by him and I recommend him to everyone. Mr. Kim thank you for keeping my favourite shoes alive! Your the best! (You can find him in the Royal Center at Burrard and Georgia, Shoe Doc and Key, Bottom Level, near skytrain)

Do you have any secret fashion people?

White Space and Lobster

My Tuesday night this week was quite busy. First off I was invited to the White Space Gala at The Bay Vancouver Downtown, which I went to with my friend, Jen. I once worked for the line "Pink Tartan" at this Bay was excited to see how the second floor had been transformed into the White Space. Well it was beautiful! If you haven't checked it out yet you must! There was wine and cocktails, appetizers and prizes. The buyers for The Bay have brought in quite a few new lines, See by Cloe, Adam, Free People, and many many more. The designer for Adam was even at the event at answer some questions asked by FASHION's Vancouver Editor Rebecca Tay. All in all it was a great fashion event to attend. Plus it was fun to catch up with some of my old co-workers. I got quite a few compliments on my shoes, something I always love. I also fell in love with a pair of shoes in The Bay's amazing shoe department.

This beautiful pair of Sam Edelman's will be mine....if they can find them in my size!

I also put a jacket on hold but I'm not sure I am fully in love with it, and at the beginning of the year I made a resolution to only buy things I'm in love with so will see how that turns out.

After the White Space Gala, I headed over to my usually Tuesday night event, Trivia Night at Relish Gastropub & Bar. I don't think I have expressed my love for this bar enough on here. I love it!! To put it into pop culture terms Relish is my "How I Met Your Mother"/"Cheers" bar. Yes, everyone there knows my name and makes me full like a superstar when I walk in the door. Plus they have a different Canadian beer for $3 everyday! Its like they can read my mine! This Tuesday was a little different, it was also Alexander Keith's birthday, so you could get a one pound lobster and a pint of Keith's for $20, that is cheap! Therefore Relish was packed, good thing I had a table to join or I would have been trying to eat my lobster standing up. Not something I think could even be done. We didn't win trivia but we did get to keep the mugs our beer came in, pretty cool. All in all a fun filled night.

Here is what I wore:

Jacket: Vintage, $20 (Erin Templeton sale)
Tank Top: Dynamite, $10
Pants: H&M, on sale for $20
Shoes: B2, $150
Clutch: A gift from Justin's Mom and Dad, they got it in Spain.
Cuff: Value Village, $2

Honestly I just don't wear my crazy shoes enough, I think I am going to try to wear them more often seeing I love them so much. What do you own that you just don't wear enough?
