Holiday season is quickly approaching – along with snow, endless Christmas parties & holiday baking – and a pop of red is the perfect hue to make a big impact in the simplest way. Sheer silk brings a bit of femininity and the leather combination keeps the look edgy (and warm in the brisk Vancouver air!).

Summer of Culottes

By far one of my favourite retro pieces, seen on an array of runways this season, is the come-back of the culottes. They are so unbelievably easy to wear, super comfy and can simply transition from a day at the office (paired with a simple sweater or crisp white shirt) to a night on the town (with sequins, heels and a party bag). I love how they embody the airy feel of wearing a skirt but perfectly capture the every day practicality of shorts. Definitely a staple for summer, and perfect for transitioning from the sun-kissed 30 degree weather into the crisp fall breeze.

Back to Black | VFW Day 5

The sun was shining and for my final Vancouver Fashion Week, I decided to go with timeless black. Inspired by one of my favourite designers showing that afternoon, Shravan Kumar, I brought a bit of India with me – wearing my mum’s vintage jewellery. My colour choice didn’t echo Shravan’s actual collection, which was beautifully inspired by the Tribes of India and brought with it an array of colours and prints; but what I loved about this look was the play on textures: my silk dress worn on top of leather leggings, juxtaposing femininity with hard-hitting edge.

Plunging necklines are daring, but this one provided the perfect jewellery-showcasing backdrop. As much as I tried to go full-on black, I couldn’t resist a little colour à la blue-suede platforms + red-studded belt. With Ryan back with me to watch our last day of shows, bringing his A-game in that amazing suit, it was a great end to a fabulous week.

Printed Pencils | VFW Day 4

I decided to bring a little work-wear for day 4 at Vancouver Fashion Week, teaming a timeless chambray with an office-appropriate printed pencil skirt. Casual fridays at the office allows a little more flexibility with my outfits, which means stepping away from corporate greys & bringing in a bit more colour, and creating an easy transition from day to runway.

Although I missed my front-row partner in crime, as Ryan decided to make a couple of catwalk appearances (he rocked the runway, by the way), it was so fun getting to spend the afternoon watching the shows with Sabrina and Jeremy from streetscout.me. As you can see from the first photo above, the pouring rain didn’t stop Jeremy from snagging an awesome shot – in 10 seconds, flat! Ryan quickly joined us for the last couple of shows and his off-duty model style was at it’s best: showing us all how to be masters in layering.

On a rainy Vancouver afternoon, what better way is there to brighten up the grey skies than with a pop of floral? Layering was also key, as the temperatures dropped dramatically: Ryan keeping warm by adding in a denim jacket, me in light layered jackets over my crisp collared shirt. Luckily by the time we arrived, the rain had settled down and we managed to snap a few photos before heading inside for the shows.

It was lovely meeting up with Andrea (check out her fabulous blog here) and it was great having Claire bring that french chic along with her. There’s a glimpse of my dapper-suited brother as well, who makes the odd appearance here and there but is usually seen behind the camera snapping those great details and outfits.

The day’s shows brought a bit of Indian culture to the runway – something I always get excited to see. Sunny’s Bridal presented exquisitely embroidered Indian outfits, for both men and women, and a surprise model – Chef Vikram Vij – strutting down the catwalk for the finale, which was a crowd pleaser for sure!
