I am so terribly sorry for not updating and putting in "My Fave Store of the Day." I have been so undeniably busy. So busy that I do not really have anything or the time to say anything fashion related today.
However, I did see the documentary, The Cove, and it was quite possibly the most moving and touching film I have ever seen. We all need to watch this, and together make a change. The number of dolphins slaughtered in a year is disgusting. The Japanese are capturing dolphins for amusement parks and for entertainment and the ones that they do not take they murder.
We need to make a difference.

I recently stumbled upon this gem. Marmalade Clothing is a Canadian company, once again insert proud Canadian moment. But seriously their clothing is so amazing. Everything looks like it was ripped off Austin Powers. And any lover of the decades LOVED the 70's.
The company is ran by a girl named, Magdalena, and she started making dresses in Toronto and selling them at the well known Kensington Market in Toronto. (If you do not know what the Kensington Market is, you really need to go. It is incredible)
So check out the site, support Canadian fashion. But for now I must go find myself a pair of go go Boots!

A friend of mine asked me for a list of my favorite online stores for clothing and accessories. So I figure, my readers deserve the same. So every day I will blog about a store that I love to shop at online. Some of them you might already know, but some might be a new gem to you.
First up, Canadian store, Anthropologie. This is quite possibly my most loved online store at the moment. The clothing, especially the dresses, are so quirky and fun. I love the textiles and how each garment has its own uniqueness to it. And as I mentioned, it is Canadian. (Patriotic Cheer)
The image above is the Edme & Esyllte - Salty Seas Dress. I absolutely love it and I have to have it. As you can see, this is just a great example of what Anthropologie is all about.

Okay, so I am not a Star Wars fan at all. Not even close to it. But I am a massive Adidas fan. I love high top sneakers, and I have an ever growing collection of sneakers. But that is besides the point.
I stumbled upon a tasty treat for shoe collectors and for Star Wars fans. Adidas has released their limited 2010 collection. And yes friends it is amazing! I really cannot wait to get my hand on, or rater my feet into a pair of these.
Here is the website, enjoy!

Image from the Ralph Lauren Fall 2009 collection
Ralph Lauren has been called a true stylist. He keeps it classic, beautiful, amazing, and imaginative. His fall/winter 2009 collection blew my mind. It was absolutely amazing. His use of textiles. The colors. You could feel them through the pages of your glossy Vogue magazine.
At the recent Fashion Week, he show cased his Fall 2010 collection and once again I am in total awe. This man is incredible. I love every piece that walked down that run way. I have a total love affair for velvets and leathers. I am a vegan, yes, but I can't help myself. I love my luxury fabrics.
To sum it all up. It is a midnight garden party meets Paris coffee shop. A marriage of sophistication and imagination. Top it all off with an amazing jacket.

Something just occurred to me. I haven't posted any of my styling work other then the visual display Betsy project. Well here we go.
As most of you can see, I like to get lost in enchanted worlds. I love trees, the earth, the mud, the dirt, the grass, the flowers, the sky, the water, the air which we cannot see. I love it all, and a lot of my inspiration is pulled from that.
I also really like a classic darkness. Not the rocked out, wild and over done hair. But the mysterious creepiness that allures people to take a closer look. Or to get lost in something twisted and demented.
Here is three images to start.

Like I said. I am a week behind all of you when it comes to watching Americas Next Top Model. I watch it at work on Sunday nights with my co-worker. However, I am totally and utterly in love with Raina. I think she has the most amazing eyebrows on the face of this planet.
Eyebrows are just such a great asset. If you have a good pair and take really good care of them, let them be your accessory! With a great lip stain of course.
The photo shoot on this weeks episode was the Vampire themed one. So great. So high fashion, even though they were just wearing shorts and tank tops and covered in fake blood. It was really amazing. I would have loved to be on a set like that. I cannot wait to shoot my Vampire shoot! So stay tuned for that.

Happy Easter weekend readers and friends. So go fill your self full of yummy food and enjoy friends and family. If there is time, and an H&M near you, you should go check out the Garden Collection.
I am not always a big fan of H&M's products, but this collection is really fun to look at. The textiles are also really great for hot weather.
On a quick side note, this entire Garden Collection from H&M is totally organic. Each item is made out of recycled materials. That being said, the fabric is still soft to the touch. So go shop, and allow your inner Green Goddess to be pleased with spending the greens ;)

Hair cuts are very important. I finally found a salon, and a stylist that I truly love. It is so important to find someone that knows how to work with your hair.
My new stylist did cut off a LOT more hair that I asked for, but it was much needed. I had been growing my hair since last April, and trying to get the box dye jobs out of my hair for a full year. Well FINALLY it is almost my natural color. And I am very happy.
I also love bangs. Who needs an accessory when you have great bangs and a killer smile ;)
Rain city never fails. The late winter early spring means rain here in Vancouver. What is a girl to do? Luckily I am many of the very few girls that have the hair frizz problem when it comes to rain as my hair is pin straight all the time. BUT I still don't like being chilled to the bone.
So the question of the day is how does a fashionable girl stay warm, dry, and in style? well its really quite simple. A great rain coat, Burberry (I am investing in one this season) and a great pair of HUNTER boots.
Hunter boots come in so many different colors that it might be hard to choose. The classic in me says black, but the product of the 80's in me says yellow. Which will I choose? Yellow. On a dark cold rainy day, they can be the sunshine in my step!
