"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!

If you care to read this, I just noticed that this is my 200th post. Excitement! Thanks for looking and reading xxx

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."

endless weekend

It's that time of year, reading week a.k.a. procrastinate week. Joking, I've actually got a game plan for my homework & work schedule this week.
I've totally got this, I swear.

This weekend (yes i'm including Monday) was quite productive, there was tons of quality time with friends, dancing, eating and no shopping - thank god. I even ended up talking to a friend who moved to Europe after high-school, then talked to two girls in my program who are currently abroad in Taipei. Anyways, scroll down to see the weekend life that I lived.

Here's a song I've been loving, have a listen 

Friendship Friday. Noella - Valentina, Check.

I mean, it was in a glass tea cup. All the class, for one little glass.

A late night stroll after a night of dancing, stumbled upon this.

GLOWBAL. The food was delicious, the interior was glamorous. I need an excuse to go back 

Ended up getting the Raspberry Macaroon and Chocolate Pistachio Cake at NOSH. Yum, Sister Saturday was a success.

Skip to Monday where I did homework in a Starbucks as a waited for my friend. (That Self Evaluation that I'm writing, yes, it does say A range)

Took a little peak into a few shops in Gastown. Adore The Latest Scoop!

Grilled Romaine at the Pourhouse, it can never do me wrong.

You can never pass up a good shot of the city.

Monday's retail research was more fun then expected. The makeup section always makes me drool.

To finish of this magnificent Monday we treated ourselves to this chocolate paradise in Nordstrom
