Short Hair Sunday: First Look at Short Hair Series with Matt Vee


Earlier this summer my photographer friend Matt Villanueva asked me, “How many ways do you think you could style your hair?” We decided to take this as a challenge and this series was born. Here’s a sneak peek at Look #1: Forward.

We had such a remarkable team involved in the project! Matt is actually a featured RAW Artist as well for an upcoming exhibition on October 15, 2015. Go buy a ticket and support local artists!

Can’t wait to show you the rest!!!

When Trends Go Too Far: Oversize Wool Jacket


Sometimes fashion trends can go too far. We all know that wearing oversize clothes are all the rage right now — oversize plain white tees, boyfriend jeans, boyfriend blazers — but here’s an example of how a trend can swing too far in the wrong direction. It’s practically comical!

This Oversize Wool Jacket was selling for $2000+ at a popular local retailer.

When considering fashion trends, you don’t have to adopt all of them. Adopt the trends that work for you and leave the rest. And if you really like this look, I promise you it would be much cheaper to raid your dad’s closet!



KonMari Japanese Method of Tidying: Eliminating Clothes

konmari-magic-of-tidying-upRecently I have been reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and have been enthralled with the KonMari Japanese method, particularly when it comes to clothing.

Eliminating clothing is the first area to tackle when tidying up and she encourages us to pull everything out of the drawers and closets and sort each item individually, asking:

“Does this bring me joy?”

And if it doesn’t, the item is discarded.

Next she suggests going vertical with folding your clothes. Rather than stacking items on top of one another she suggests turning folded items on their sides so each item is visible. It even takes up less space!

This week my husband and I took a day follow the KonMari method for eliminating clothes, identifying what clothes bring us joy, discarding the ones that don’t, and then sorting and folding the remaining items in a systematic way.

Fall is a perfect time of the year to pull everything out of your closets where you can see them and see what’s working and what’s not. Would you like help? With our “Wardrobe Evaluation” Closet Audit we come to your home and guide you through the evaluation and elimination process. It’s always more fun with company!

Sustainable Wedding Vancouver: Miranda + Brian


Today my beautiful cousin Miranda and her beau decided to tie the knot and eloped in front of an intimate group of family and friends. People basically had 24 hours notice and I’m so grateful to have been able to rearrange my schedule and drive up Vancouver to witness their vows. 

True to her sustainable fashion personal philosophies, she bought nothing — no decorations, no ring, no flowers, no big white wedding dress (she wore her grad dress). The only money spent was on a haircut. Bonus points for grabbing the groom’s butt during her wedding vows. Congratulations, Miranda and Brian! 

I was happy to lend my phone for a selfie of the newlyweds!

So who says your wedding has to cost a fortune, take years to plan, and take every ounce of your sanity and attention span? What a lovely alternative!
