Gap sherpa bear one piece from Gap Sara Kety Gold 'n Pearls short sleeve bodysuit from Nordstrom J.Crew baby plaid flannel shirt from J.Crew Gap ballet sweater dress from Gap Converse infant all star high top sneaker from Nordstrom Dr. Martens infant girl's Brooklee patent leather boot from Nordstrom Vans baby checkerboard slip-on sneakers from J.Crew TOMS classic tiny crochet slip-on from Nordstrom
These are a few cute holiday gift ideas for baby girls and boys. The Gap is a great go to place for baby items like one pieces, dresses and accessories. The Sara Kety bodysuit is super cute for a baby girl. There are cute ones for boys too like this one. The J.Crew plaid flannel is adorable for baby boys and would look great with a pair of jeans and the Vans sneakers. I especially love all the little shoes for babies. If I were to pick just one of these items to give this Christmas it would be the Converse sneakers because they're a classic and they're unisex. I would also match w…

Blanche Macdonald Annual Graduate Fashion Show 2014

Image
I had the pleasure of attending the Blanche Macdonald annual graduate fashion show again this year. I previously attended in 2012. This year the show was titled Wandering Stars and was held at St. Andrews Wesley church. It was a fantastic evening. The reception was wonderful as there were so many tasty treats including mini donuts, cream puffs and macarons. I tried them all and the pistachio macaron was my favourite. These are just a few shots I took at the show. I especially loved the glittery gold hair and makeup. Congrats to all the graduates!

C. Wonder Ikat Polka Dot Tea for One from Shopbop KitchenAid Professional stand mixer in pearl metallic from Target C. Wonder Bubbles Champagne Flute glasses in gold from Shopbop Jonathan Adler Secrets canister from Shopbop S'well Sparkling Champagne water bottle from Shopbop J.Crew Ferm Living squares blanket from J.Crew Quarto Nutella recipe book from Nordstrom Diptyque winter candle from Nordstrom
These are a few holiday gift ideas for the home. The C. Wonder teapot for one is super cute for the single girl or if there's only one tea drinker in the house. A KitchenAid stand mixer is a must have for any baker. I love using one to make loads of gingerbread cookies for Christmas. The champagne flutes are perfect to use for New Year's Eve. The Jonathan Adler canister is really fun and he also makes really cute mugs, salt and pepper shakers and bottle stoppers. The S'well water bottle is a gorgeous colour. I am loving gold for the home and for the holidays. A blanket always mak…

Fall Mood

My fall mood has been all black outfits mostly (see here and here). This dark purple scarf adds a little bit of colour as well as my darker lipstick colour. I previously wore this LBD in the summer. All this layering makes the dress work for the fall too. What's your fall mood?

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

The North Face eTip gloves from Nordstrom Nike Roshe Run M sneakers from Nordstrom Tom Ford Noir eau de parfum cologne from Nordstrom J.Crew Mosaic wool scarf from J.Crew Jason Markk essential shoe cleaning kit from Nordstrom J.Crew Abingdon travel kit from J.Crew
These are a few holiday gift ideas for the men in your life. These gloves from The North Face are great because you can still use your phone while wearing them. Nike sneakers are a guy basic and the Jason Markk shoe cleaning kit is perfect to go with them. The Tom Ford cologne is a luxurious gift. He makes many different scents so you're sure to find one to your liking. And J.Crew is a go to place for accessories like this scarf and travel kit but also for socks, bags and hats.

Kenya Jacket

Mackage exclusively for Aritzia Kenya leather jacket (similar from Mackage); Helmut Lang logo tank; American Eagle ripped jeans; Vianni Collection boots; Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Natasha bag

This Mackage leather jacket has become one of my wardrobe staples. It's perfect for the climate here in Vancouver. I've worn it in the winter and summer. It's part of my go to uniform outfit. It's amazing quality as I got mine more than 3 years ago and it still looks great after wearing it a million times.

Lace Dress

Another dark outfit this time featuring a lace dress. I'm keeping it more casual with a slouchy bag and sweater. I could easily dress up this dress for an upcoming holiday party though with some heels and a clutch. And I just love these Plush fleece lined socks. They are so warm!

Holiday Gift Guide: Tech

Marc by Marc Jacobs Mix Tape iPhone case from Nordstrom Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon iPad case from Nordstrom Frends with Benefits Taylor headphones in gold and black from Nordstrom Triple C for J.Crew power card from J.Crew Fujifilm instax mini 8 camera from J.Crew
These are a few tech accessories that would make perfect gifts this holiday season. A new phone case is always a good idea and Marc by Marc Jacobs always has so many fun ones. Last year I bought a really cute zebra one for a gift. The power card is useful if you use your phone a lot and it charges any device with a USB port. I keep one in my purse at all times. I would love to receive the headphones this Christmas. They're so sleek!
