i t s f i n e

These days, the best kinds of days are the ones that are completely unplanned. Vanilla lattes and walks downtown make me feel like this is the right way to start summer. Seeing as I'm nothing but broke right now I think it's time for me to hone in on my goals. I've got my manifestation list for the summer in one hand and a really sick playlist on my iPhone in the other.

The blog needed a little color, I wonder how many times these walls have been painted on. 
And on that note I leave you with this track:

Regulars

My friend Kate and I have recently took it upon ourselves to really make an effort to enjoy the finer things in life. Maybe the next big thing is to enjoy all the little things - poutine from Chill Winston, taking advantage of Happy Hour at Starbucks (and other places) and people/dog watching in the park.

Coffee, Tacos and May

I've been absent for a month or so, but I've got some solid reasons why I've not posted, I promise.
As my Spring semester at Uni ended I celebrated my older friends graduations. I must admit, I've gone out dancing one too many times in the month of April, I was so busy having fun and truly living in the moment, watching all the people I admire and look up to graduate from uni - I got so inspired. I've been collecting images, and color references, and name ideas that will all to go towards my final thesis collection which I begin developing in the Fall.
Today though was a great little day. I had a conversation about the purpose of design and creation over coffee, watched The First Monday In May and relived walking around the exhibition last May (China: Through The Looking Glass AND I would pay to watch it again), and ate some delicious tacos. It's days like this that I really appreciate spending one on one time with friends.  

2 more things, I'm obsessed with VIEWS, Drake is bae. I also made a pretty bomb playlist and you should have a listen:



Buro Vanilla Latte is a yes, so is POOL.

Cotrolla - Feel No Ways - Child's Play , on repeat

Memories of New York, I would do anything to go back this Summer...

Tacofino has changed my life, thank you Sisi

"It's a crystal ball business" an #ootd

As today's super stressful situation sorted it self out (deadline upon deadline upon deadline) I found a few minutes to take some pictures. Yesterdays late night, and endless staring at my computer screen made me decide it was a good idea to wear my glasses today. 

A few things I learned today in class,
  • Don't try to defend your opinions, validate them
  • The fashion industry is a crystal ball business
  • "Are we or aren't we, and if we are, how?"

Lost at Last an #ootd

Came across some pretty cool pins for my denim jacket at a cute thrift shop downtown. They're by the company Explorer's Press. Its a local company all about customizing and accessorizing your personal items. They have things from pins, to key chains, to patches and couple shirts that I've been eyeing since I bought these pins. Check it out here!

Set No Path an #ootd

The obvious becomes more apparent when you experience certain situations first hand. It's taken me a long time to understand that you don't have to be into fashion to be in the fashion industry. A company is comprised of so many aspects down to technical and strategic business elements. "Straight and narrow is not the only path to success" (Sophia Amoruso) It takes a couple shitty jobs and experiences to land "the one". For all we know, the one job we strive for, our dream job, may only turn out to be temporary. There's a reason why investments can mean higher risk. (To be continued.)

A moment pt.2


hetki / a moment

"Vancouver based Scandinavian inspired design. 

We appreciate the contrast between light & dark, ethereal & intrepid, uncomplicated & uncommon. 

Creating minimal and meaningful pieces that support the "slow fashion" movement. 

A moment lady appreciates the value of investing. 

Our collection blurs the lines between seasonal trends to provide our customers with a timeless wardrobe which will last her years.

After spending time living and studying fashion design in Vancouver, Canada, Kate Schreiner took her studies over to Helsinki, Finland where she found herself immersed in culture, simplicity, and a beautiful lifestyle which provided inspiration for this Vancouver based company."
