Collections











Watch part collections from Cheap Boutique via Coco +Kelley.
I do love me some collections. These are pretty quaint, but I don't know what I would do with them. Make earings? Necklaces? Charm Bracelets?

Winter Styles



If only all men dressed like this....

More NY

More lovely people from garance dore!









I love these socks, I actually got a pair as well at the Karen Walker show! Go Fashion WEEK!

Some people just got it

Being in New York recently and experiencing fashion week, you just get this sense of style and need for style from people. People dress to impress in New York, hence you often feel underdressed if you are walking in SoHo and you don't have high heels. And forget it if you are wearing sneakers (don't worry no sneakers for me lol). Some style from Sartorialist from NY. I love that people push the trends and dress to impress. I often wish people in Vancouver would take more time to dress well and think about what they are wearing, both women AND men.



Love her hair btw, and great sleak business style.




Oh I just love this look, with the oversized scarf and fedora in the tones of winter and fall.



Men dress very well in NY as you can see.



I have to say I hate the drop/poop pants but they were on this lady.



Love it, cute and layered.



Again, adorable.



Great style.



Styling!



I love this girl, love her hair, outfit, and radiance.

FASHION WEEK and good Tips

So no photos but guess what! I got to go to a fashion week show, it was super fun! We went to Karen Walker's runway show! No the biggest fan of the clothes but that doesn't matter! It was an experience, hope you all have a chance to go one day!

Also I want to give a big thanks to our Anne from City of Sage! She gave me so many tips of places to go to and they were all so wonderful, and some sooooo divine, bordering on evil good! The city baker chocolate chip cookie made my hands shake it was so yummy!

I think Anne should write a Downtown guide :)

Happy Love Day Lovelies


Via Chic Sensibility

I just wanted to say thank you to all my readers, you make me feel special, and I am always inspired by everyone's fabulous tastes and finds! I personally don't believe we need a day of love to show each other that we love and respect each other, I think that should happen all the time. BUT to not be boring...my favorite V-day pic :)

Heart Collages

These would make lovely Valentine's Day cards or pieces of art on your walls.

My favorite.

UNICEF CONFERENCE

I am currently at a UNICEF/UN Conference in NY! It's amazing times, I have met some pretty incredible people that are pushing the limits of Web 2.0 to create positive impact and work with the individuals in the developing world! One of them being the org that I am here with, SAWA Global! Giving Voices to Heroes!

PHOTOS TO COME!

Blog Alert



Adorable.



Love the jacket and the head piece.



Very cute.



Styling with the pearlies.

Love this new/old blog: Le Blog de Betty! Of course she is a frenchie, which you could probably tell by her cute style. I love her outfits and pieces, very adorable....oh and her bangs! And the fact that she has a giant pet bunny. Her looks could be straight from the sartorialist. Unfortunately her blog is all in french, and I have to admit that my french is very very rusty but she posts photos galore.

Pretty



I don't know why, but I rally love these booties, and that bag behind the chair!
From the fab french blog garance dore.

A Piece of Me



A while ago I did this sketch randomly, didn't even look back at it till my friend organized a talent show for all of us to come and share a talent of our choice. So I looked through my sketchbook and tore this out, put it in a nice vintage frame. And I have to say I loved it! So did my dear friend, who I gave this too. She has a perfect spot with lovely feathers to make the picture look even better than it is :)

Big City



So lovelies, I am going to the big city twice this month. I go next week for about 6-7 days for a conference and some fun times. Unfortunately I am going to miss V-day with my hubby, but I think NYC will be a good default. So for those that have lived what should I do with my time? Good Eats? Good Shopping? Galleries?

Since I am going to NY







Yes I am! I am going twice in the month of February! My friend Philip send me this link to prep me for the big city! Check out more of the Legos!

Flower Home

Sometimes people say, simple is the answer, minimalism is the way to go, one picture per wall. I say blah. It may work for some people, but I tend to collect, and I do like to display my collections as does my partner! And so I always appreciate and love to see home's of people who are not afraid to collect and have their own unique interior decor.

Great rich colour! It almost feels luxurious!

I like the mix of colour, texture and style.

Teacups? One of my collection items. In fact my partner tells me I am not allowed to buy any more antique teacups. I tell him when he stops collecting toy figurines I will stop collecting tea cups. I love this display and the fact that all her teacups are different.

You know if I walked into a home, and on the wall there was one of these paintings, I would probably cringe. BUT it really really works when there is just a bunch of them. It's almost as if it's wallpaper.

Love it!

Again, love it. The flower paintings on the wall and all the lovely furniture. 
So what do you think.....could you live here?
