Nike ‘dunk sky high’ & fashion week

With all the fashion weeks coming up starting with NYC we look to see what the top designers would have to offer. Who would have thought Nike was going to show up with a huge hit. The Nike wedge sneaker – I did scoop up a pair while in NY – has not only made a stylish sneaker they have brought out a special edition for each fashion week! See attached photo. NYFW sold out of the pony hair silver wedge in just two hours!!!

2013 golden globe wins ..

Usually I can put together a top ten for Golden Globes but not this year. To many misses from Halle Berry’s shredded up mess, to Jlo’s nude floral dress that reminded me of what we made figure skating dresses out of! Did all stylist decide red was the colour of choice this year!? To much RED. BUT of course I did find a couple of looks I loved!

High and Low

The look was big in the summer.. and now has carried through fall. The High/low dress and or skirt. Depending on how you want to wear it! Norma Kamali has some great options on www.shopbop.com for $285. I found a high/low dress similar at the new forever21 on Robson for $18. What do you think of the high/low look?

Camo keeps coming back…

I swear Camo never stops coming up in the fashion trends. It seems to always stick it out and re-appear in a new cut or style every year. My fave this year is the camo skinny. Current Elliot did a great one, as well as a casual camo jacket. I got mine for a stellar deal $54 at Zara… Would you wear Camo?

Check out @timelinegastown a hidden gem.

I have been a big consigner since the age of 13. Crazy right!! Shopping habits started young with my Dr.Martin collection in grade 8. Red patent to plaid 8 holes.. had to make money off them when the trend ended to afford the latest trend rolling thru by grade 10 lol. The consignment world has always been like and additional job to keep up with the fashion trends. I have had challenges over the years finding a consigner who pays out, sells goods at realistic prices and allows drop offs at anytime. I have now recently found Timeline in gastown who solves all those problems…

The leather vest

The leather vest is a hot item for fall. I purchased one on my black Friday shop last year and defiantly had difficulty figuring out what to do with this piece. Now that’s its such a big trend and edgy looks of camo and skulls seem big it has become easy to make this piece cool. Below is me finally in mine (tory burch)as well as a few other options from www.revolveclothing.com
What do you think of the leather vest?
