Fall Finds 2011

This season i’m really into jewel tones, but then again, i’ve always been a lover of purple…and teal and… alright so it’s hard to pick just one colour, but i’ve picked out a few items that caught my eye this fall. I always think that accessories really change an outfit. You could wear black everyday (like I usually do), but add a cute scarf, some awesome boots and some bold jewelry it changes everything.

I’ve been loving that amethyst is really in style lately, it’s literally everywhere from handmade to mass made (h&m, aldo) it’s a must have right now. I specifically love it, because its my birthstone and one of my favorite colours. So keep the chunky crystal gemstones coming, I hope they never go out of style.

Art to Boot and I Heart Van Art

Last month I contributed to an art charity event, called Art to Boot. We had to “art up” a pair of Blundstone boots and they’d go up for auction, money raised went to I Heart Van Art. It was a collaborative effort with my coworker David Manzl.

Find Finds for Fall

Here’s just a few things I think are awesome for Fall this year. Since it’s really creeping up on us fast in Vancouver, there’s nothing like a solid pair of boots that might end up lasting you a lifetime if you take good care of them. I’ve been eyeing Frye Boots lately.

I’m really into vintage/retro, specifically hats and jewllery, i’ve discovered some amazing hat designs from Louise Green, you may have spotted one of her designs on Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester, in the season premiere. If you’re wondering where the vintage cocktail floral ring comes from, it’s an Etsy find by 2dy4, find it here.

I’ve never been one to love shopping at The Gap, infact I haven’t been in a store in several years, but hunting online this season, i’ve found a super cute basic dress that will probably make it through the winter season as well. Pair the dress with their wool duffle bag and you’re all set!  The last item is a budget find, a faux leather braided watch from Ardenes, it’s about $9, but if you’re looking for quality, Fossil watches have similar style.
