Pefect Peach for Summer

Posted by 1 on

Look out the window. The sun is shinning. It's time to think about summer. Summer and all the beautiful colors that go with. Perfect peach, for example. Whoa. Suddenly, almost overnight, spring became summer. Hooray! Pastels have been so strong through spring, I strongly believe they are going to stay through the summer (maybe paired with some neon color blocking or shabby chic roses?)

Which, by the way, is exactly the imagery I would put to...

[caption id="attachment_1567" align="alignleft" width="210"] Pressed Flower Magnets by Hidden Garden[/caption] Welcome to the heat of summer! As the summer wanes and some of us begin thinking about back to school and fall fashion, there are so many wonderful events, festivals, concerts, and more, going on in the city. September 5 - 12 is Mexico Fest, and Pride Vancouver wrapped up this past weekend. Keeping on track of posting blogs has been a struggle, but there are many fantastic happenings in the background leading up to the holiday season. This week has been, yet another blur, while LanaBetty has been busy...

Whew! What an adventure! These past few weeks have been chaos - but the good kind. Each and every day of the past three weeks has been an ADVENTURE!

Cockatoo Blue Makes an Appearance

Posted by 1 on

A few weeks ago, I began by posting a #WednesdayTreasury about Tangerine Tango. I am absolutely in love with that color. Really, it's just a dark, intense orange. Love it. The more and more the sun peeks out behind the clouds, the more I am seeing it on the fashion forward women of this city. As inspiring as the color is, I also am in love with Pantone's other colors to pair with Tangerine Tango: Margarita and Cockatoo Blue. Last week's #WednesdayTreasury featured Margarita and this week is all about the blue. [caption id="attachment_1355" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Aqua Blazer with Purple...

Retro Modern without Teal just isn't Retro

First and Foremost, I created a Treasury. Check it out. This is the story of why I made it. I enjoyed making and creating my Wednesday Treasury so much that I made one today; on Thursday. As I type, the last lingering residents of my building are shuffling their slippers and house coats back into the building. Andrew and I will remain on our patio for a while longer; enjoying this incredible indian summer in Vancouver. Soon it will be raining and pouring and the old man will be sawing logs, but until then; I'm going to drink my Innis...
