So if you didn’t notice, I couldn’t quite get the posts up this week that I wanted. Work has been crazy, and the weather not so nice so I didn’t get a chance to photograph the outfits I had planned. However, I did snap some quick pictures of the outfits anyways in a make-shift studio (aka my room).


This first outfit is a casual but cute outfit you could wear to work, or out on a date. Paired with flats or heels, it’s fun and showcases my love of Polaroids.

T-shirt and Skirt- H&M

The next outfit is casual but cute. I could see myself wearing it on my day off to run errands, or to meet up with some girl friends. I would pair this outfit with flats or little jazz shoes. You can still have fun on Valentines day with some of your closest friends!!!!

Tank top, Boyfriend Blazer and Jeans – H&M, Vintage Coach purse

If you are looking for something a bit more dressed up, or to impress a certain someone, I would wear a sexy little dress like this one. Paired with simple accessories, it will be sure to catch their attention.

Dress and Heart Purse – H&M, Steve Madden Heels

What are your plans for this lovely Valentines weekend? I am going to celebrate with the city of Vancouver as it is the one year anniversary of the 2010 Winter Olympics. There will be lots of free events happening down town, including street hockey and free skating! Hope your weekend is fun as well, and have a Happy Valentines!


What’s not to love?

I know Valentines day is one of those weird holiday’s that people either love or loathe. I personally think it’s kind of fun. I mean if you take it as a fun day where you can appreciate all the love in your life, enjoy some candy and the many lovely shades of red and pink, then it’s not so bad right?

I love all the cute little things that come out around Valentines day. Anyone see these red Heartbeat headphones by Lady Gaga?

Or these awesome Chuck Taylor’s?

Other item’s I wouldn’t mind scooping up before V-Day include these sunglasses…..

a set of Marc Jacob’s pencils (found exclusively at BookMarc)….

This gorgeous Dolce & Gabanna compact…..

or a pair of sparkly pink Tom’s for the girly girl in me!

I have a few Valentines inspired outfits I would like to share with you this week, which aren’t hard to create with my wardrobe. So if you’re looking for a cute dinner date outfit, something casual for the weekend or something a little different, check back and see what I come up with!

So I seem to be catching up on all the latest social networking tools available on the net. No I have not joined Foursquare, but I did create a Tumblr account.

I have always kept a folder full of inspiration I find on my desktop and occasionally would post about it on my blog or on Facebook. But now I can channel all my inspiration into one place! You can check it out to see what I’m interested in and possibly get a sneak peak at upcoming posts. I hope it’s exciting, I know it will be for me! And I will try and update it everyday, unlike my blog which I am working on to make sure every post is the best it can be.

Hi all, sorry I’ve been m.i.a. lately. It’s getting near the end of my last semester (!!!) so I’m in the middle of finnishing up final projects and preparing for exams. In the mean time I will leave you with some pictures of what has been inspiring me lately.

So far I have to admit it has been a pretty good summer, even though I have to go to school. I’m already getting excited for fall; seeing all the new collections on the runways finall appearing in stores, looking forward to some trips I have planned, and the excitment of finding my dream job once I graduate.

I hope everyone is enjoying some nice weather and is making hte best of summer 2010 while we still have it. Untill next time, please enjoy these pictures:
