It’s been awhile for the summer weather to hit in Van city. The dresses and sandals have slowly been collecting dust until Canada day weekend.
Attached is a maxi dress I scored at the Victoria Secret sale for $39! Paired with some orange Kors by Michael Kors sandals. I’ve added a collection of silver bracelets given to me over the years from Mallory’s travels. The leather wrap I picked up in a market at Venice beach. Alternative looks attached. Piperlime.com shows a black maxi dress for $108. Old Navy shows a blue maxi for $29. Lots of great price options to get the look!
Aleesha Harris wrote an article this past Saturday in the Vancouver Sun. Aleesha had some great points about the benefits of hiring a personal shopper. Check out my comments in the article below…
I had taken a break from the hectic shopping world and have now created some balance which has given me a new perspective on life. However, this didn’t mean I didn’t stop shopping, giving people fashion advice, or getting trapped in a closet clean out! I can never say no to any of that to much fun!
Right now I am in a much more peaceful place in my life with a new apartment, surrounded by great family & friends, and some new shoes of course :) I look forward to posting new updates about fashion talking about my outfits, my travels, and the latest trends.
My new blog has been named after my grandma Mabelle Neeve who was a Toronto based clothing designer. She graduated from the Anderson School of Designing in 1932 and went on to work as a dress designer for Eaton’s.

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!!!
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!
