She Loves You, YeYe!

Izzy is one of my favorite bloggers, and dare I say, the blogger who inspired me to start outfit posting in the first place. I recall discovering her vibrant and whimsical outfits back in 2007 (or maybe 2006?) when cruising a Flickr group called Wardrobe Remix. At the time, I had no idea she was Canadian like me; I was just smitten with her bright tights and vintage finds. My love for this lady's style is still growing...

I'm excited to share Izzy's lookbook for her shop, the YeYe Vintage's Summer 2013 collection, which is brimming with 1960's inspired babes! Featuring handmade earrings from reclaimed vintage materials and psychedelic prints, the mod vibe of this shoot makes me long for the days of Peggy Moffitt, Penelope Tree and Twiggy. Viva la mod girls!

I'm Holding Out For That Teenage Feeling.

There are a few things that are always eluding me in thrift/vintage/shopping land; for a very long time I was hunting (to no avail) for a letterman or varsity jacket. Luck would have it that I've finally snagged two (here is my other) during the year or so I've been working at Front & Company. This one is particularly close to my heart since it's older, woolen and even has the original owner's name still scrawled on the interior. I love a little bit history in a garment. When I put this jacket on, I feel like I am a teen again, swiftly borrowing a jacket from a lover.

These Streets.

I've been spending a lot of time in Gastown recently. The beautifully curated shops, delicious cafes, olden brick buildings; it is my sensory paradise here in the city.

My pal Emily R. took this set of photographs! It's lovely to have a great backdrop and a willing photographer who knows their way behind a lens. They ended up a little out of focus, but I liked the light that dusk casts in that part of town.

If I Make Myself Understood, Will You Love Me Like You Know You Should?

I had the pleasure of attending Jessie Ware's show when she stopped in Vancouver. What a show! MSMR (the openers) was much better than expected, bringing an exuberant joy to Commodore Ballroom before the main act had even began. Then came the woman of the hour. Jessie was simply effervescent, engaging with the crowd colloquially, with a sunny, self deprecating humor that was impossible to resist. The honeyed control of her range made for a wondrous show, and although largely electronic based, the emotive qualities of her songs translated phenomenally into a live show. I don't think I could have asked for more, except for a longer set!

We're Up For Good Fun.

Mitzi and I have been "blogger" and real friends for about three years now. This set is from a recent(ish) visit when we had breakfast and lunch/dinner within the span of about 3 hours. There's nothing quite like food hopping with an old friend!

Wasted Effort, Part II.

Hello again. First things first: I am extending my blog contest, since I have been absent recently (oh real life, you steal me away from online life!). Originally it was going to be until Monday, but now I will be keeping it open until Monday, June 10. All you have to do is leave a comment here! FREE LULA MAGAZINE. FREE CANDY. FREE SOX. Just saying.

Emily, Kate and I have had several lovely lady dates lately, and on this one we ventured down to Nouvelle Nouvelle to see the collection video for Wasted Effort. Who could argue with an evening filled with cheap drinks and familiar faces? Not to mention gorgeous images from the Wasted Effort lookbook, and being able to try on pieces (Lena necklace, I love you...). I am lusting after the whole Elytra collection!

PS. My outfit takes not-so-subtle inspiration from Nicolette, non?
