raise eyebrows with your hair

...in a good way. Both March 2010 issues of GQ and Details proclaim that big hair is in. More specifically, it's the pompadour.It's a way of looking damn good without the appearance that you spent over an hour in the bathroom mirror perfecting every single strand of hair, when in reality, you probably did. Hell, I know. I've been growing out my hair in this vein for the past seven months, and who would have thought that I would have started a trend. Okay, okay, the Spring/Summer 2010 shows in Milan might have something to do with it as well. But still, when the rebellious haircut of the fifties resurfaces in our modern era and there's nothing left to rebel against, what does it stand for? Nothing but looking damn good. Morrissey and James Dean were onto something, no?


Okay, so I couldn't think of anything more creative than a flop Jennifer Lopez CD as the title to this post, but you know what, the hell with it.
Where does this blog go now? It has been almost a year since I have last updated with pictures of fashionistas in our city that has exploded on the radar since the Olympics. Can you imagine the challenge to find someone fashionable during that two week period? So, let's try to answer the question that I asked above, where does this blog go now? I'm not sure if I can answer that question with a definite answer, so let's leave the question as it stands, and hopefully as I update an answer will manifest. Until then, let's stay fashionable.

through the golden filter

how to pull off all black in the summer - love the boat shoes on her.

simple summer gear - with an added platform touch.

who said thick black framed "nerd" glasses were out? if it makes you stand out, take charge and wear them.

a quintessential vancouverite returning from yoga? not quite. she could have reinforced the stereotype and worn full regalia from lululemon but she wore this fantastic coat that made me take notice. and nice touch not wearing new balance runners...

love that she took a western style bandana and used it as an oversized pocket square.

here comes the sun...

The sun had finally come out in our fair little city, and I had the unfortunate luck to forget my camera while shopping downtown. As luck would have it, it seemed as hundreds of men and women flocked out in the city dressed in their summer best. By the time I had the opportunity to snap some pictures, it seemed that everyone was sitting either in patios drinking mojitos (or the relevant drink of choice) or taking a stroll along the beach. That was until I ran into these subjects. My favourite though, is the woman who accessorized her classic styled dress with chandelier earrings, leopard pumps and bold sleveless jacket. And who said Vancouverites didn't take risks?

parallel lines

In a time when Vancouver weather is in-between seasons, this young woman gets points for rebelling against typical "hipster" vancouver fashion. Although I wish she had gone a different route with her footwear, her clothing choices are top-notch.

little boots

1) mixing silhouettes? check.
2) a burst of color or pattern? check.
3) spring boots? check.

grey matter

who knew shopping for toilet paper could be so "tres chic"? think about it the next time you leave the house.

granville island love

what makes a black coat not boring? with sheer bravado, this woman dares to go full force with red accessories that make her stand out in the crowd.

the ruffle detailing on the leather jacket and ankle boots are spot on.

triple threat
