The most important item to a fashionista, besides her Christan Louboutins black patent leather pumps, is her magazine. I am currently obsessed with Vs. Magazine. I stumbled upon this precious gem when I was wandering through Chapters book store looking for photo shoot inspiration. I saw hot pink and a stunning image of Drew Barrymore and instantly grabbed it. I didn't care what the price was, I just had to have it.
When I got home, I was amazed at what I saw. You know you are captured by a mag when you use all 5 senses to engage in it. The lay outs, the editorials, the text, the paper stock, the smell! Amazing. I had a euphoric moment with Vs. and for that I salute you!
So my suggestion; GO BUY IT. NOW! You can even look at it online. ;)

Did anyone watch Project Runway Canada last year? I sure did. The Canadian talent on that season was mind blowing. Obviously VAWK was going to win, his gowns and his attention to detail was what pushed him to the top. However, it was Jessica Biffi that stood out the most in my mind.
Her designs were funky, fresh, hip, and exciting. Made me want to wear everything that walked down that runway. Her spring/summer 2010 collection fashion show images were just posted on her website: jessicabiffi.com. and I have to say, still in love!
I can't wait to see what she will come up with next.

I absolutely LOVE this show. Always have, always will. And this week on the show they are doing a vampire inspired shoot. As we all know, vampires are all the rage. In television, movies, and therefore in fashion.
While ANTM may have beat me to the Vampire photo shoot, you better believe that I am still going to do one. The setting.. the Lynn Canyon. It will be an amazing time. You will have to wait and see...
While you are waiting, WATCH THE SHOW!

Well my friends it is that time of year again. The bi-annual or the quarterly (for you real wardrobe nuts) to clean out the closet and do the swap from fall/winter to spring/summer.
While you east coasters are enjoying your warm weather, here on the West coast we are still feeling the chill, and although I am currently wearing sandals, the skies have an angry look of rain in them. So my spring closet clean is going very, very slow.
This spring, for my wardrobe, I require a pair of bloomer shorts from American Apparel, cotton dresses, big hats, Havaianas, Chanel sun glasses, and a glass of white sangria.
What does your wardrobe require this summer?

Ahhh.. Big breath in. Big Breath out! Spring is here. Although, in Vancouver, B.C. it comes a few months early.
So, while I cook my tofu fried rice (minus the egg), I will entertain you with the ideas of what spring fashion has to offer us this year;
Big hair bows. = LOVE. How do you wear such an amazing accessory? Anyway you want. So long as it is in your hair. That being said, the longevity of this trend is probably until the fall. Sorry Blair Waldorf. But enjoy it while you can. I know I am.
Next: Studded anything. Blazers, jersey blazers, shorts, shoes, bags. You name it, it's going to be studded. Want to save money on this trend? Pull out the old BEDAZZLER and go to town. If only I knew where mine was...
Okay. So there you have it. 2 spring 2010 trends.. stay tuned for more. Maybe I will catch some lovely people rocking them on the streets and snap a few pictures.

So I made my big debut at the fashion show on March 09/2010. My dresses rocked the runway, and I am happy to say they are starting to sell.
The fashion show was called a Twisted Fairytale. And the clothing I made for the show was just that, specifically for the show. The night was truly magical, and I cannot wait until I do it again.
So here are the pictures from my designs in the show. Enjoy!
