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.

Fine Finds: Fall 2010

Fall is in the air. It’s only the beginning of September, but I decided I wanted to think up some ideas for colours I want to wear this Fall. Red might be a fun choice. Here’s some items i’ve selected, all very affordable too.

Vancouver in October

The other day I went downtown and made sure to snap a few photos of the progress along Granville Street. Luckily the street is still closed, so I could stand in the middle and get a good view. I really hope they bring back the trees, it’s sure looking concrete and bare.

Just about every other block in Vancouver is being redeveloped, but at Richards near Yaletown, where they’ve demolished Richards on Richards to make room for a new condo developement, there’s a few heritage houses that have been put up on blocks to either be moved or sent to heritage house heaven. I was able to photograph one, the other was blocked by signage.

Fall is here and I wanted to share some of the beautiful colours I spotted in Yaletown that contrast perfectly along side the old brick buildings.
