I now believe having my nails kept clean and neat finishes off any outfit nicely. My nails can be a nice compliment to what I am wearing or my mood. Recently, I spoke with Irene Lee, the owner of Pure Nail Bar and she shared with me some of her tips to keep nails neat looking and the hottest nail trends for spring.
I love T-shirts and wear them with everything from skirts, to jeans to dressier pants. Recently, I spoke with Nicholas Brooke, CEO of Sunspel and Nicholas shared with me some of the top trends for T-shirts this spring. I was excited to hear from Nicholas about her suggestions on how to dress up a T-shirt and find out more about the hottest colours for spring 2015.
For years now, I have had a bracelet (my dad gave me), a watch and a long necklace that my friend gave me which I wear with everything. This is the extent of my jewelry. When I venture into downtown Vancouver, I always notice other women wearing layers of necklaces and looking so elegant. It looks simple, but how do I do this without over doing it?
With each generation, the adoption of a new style standard represented more than a change in aesthetic tastes as trends represent today in the seesaw of what's-new-what's-next-what's-cool; style has always been tied to some sort of revolution. Today, with nothing that can't be created, nothing that can't be found, nothing that can't be knocked off, we really can have it all.
Typically when I am rolling into Vancouver, I am wearing the cyclist's uniform of a merino wool top, waterproof jacket and stretchy cycling pants. In the back of my mind, I had always thought of how fantastic it would be if I could arrive to a meeting wearing something stylish and comfortable to ride in. My day has finally come.
Much like many of my clients, I am a woman of many moods. Instead of letting it confuse or overwhelm, why not embrace it and go with it. Below are my picks for how to style just some of the many moods you might be feeling. For each look, I've chosen to go with a simple white T-shirt and jeans to show how easy it is to switch up some basics.
Even if we can suspend the notion that body parts can be fashion accessories, this Vogue piece wreaks of 'columbusing': The art Of discovering something that is not new. Like J.Lo and Beyoncé's original (wider) noses, the curvy booty is a hereditary endowment of Africa. African features are as old as time.
A silk pillow case or tied silk scarf will provide the lowest amount of friction possible, which will prevent frizzy bed head. Dry shampoo can be helpful too, to keep the blowout fresh for days to come. If your blowout is a loose wave, at the end of the night do a high twisted top knot on the top of your head and secure with bobby pins rather than an elastic.
I have always felt that it is possible to have the world of luxury and sustainable fashion come together. If these two powerful combinations could meet, I am sure more people would be open to making the change to environmentally friendly trends. Luckily, my dreams are coming true. More and more there are greater options for vegan fashion.
