Triple Threat

Today was another gorgeous day in Vancouver. I finally found some time to just relax, I've been so busy with school lately I haven't had much time to do much else other then assignments...not that I'm complaining. 

Anyway, I had this idea..I love waist belts, I have so many and putting them with a baggy outfit always is flattering..and then I thought..why not take three different skinny ones and wear all three? and just for kicks, tie them on opposite directions to add balance. I kinda like it, I feel like it beats the big old giant waist belts. JC

27 Degree Lights

It was 27 degree's outside, what a beautiful day, however mine was spent inside with 27 degree photo lighting...Today was the photo shoot for  Garrett Grhymes. We were on set for around 6 1/2 hours. Just goes to show that good quality takes time. Anyway, I ended up being the head Stylist for the shoot and directing the models for the looks and such, which was unexpected because I thought I was only styling Garrett. I can not wait to show you all the results from the shoot. In the mean time, have a listen to Garrett's Album, he will undoubtedly prove his talent this year when his Album is released. I know I'm already a fan. JC

Viktor & Rolf

As I was clicking obsessively through fashion sites I came across a name ..well two names..This Fall Dutch designers Viktor and Rolf have prepared their runway for battle. It seems as though it is my loss because these two have launched their line over a decade ago.

I suggest you go to their website and see for your self in their archives, the show was really state-of-the-art. Noticeably stiff and sculptural fabrics were used in many of the outfits in their Fall 2011 show, and I selected a few of my favourite pieces to show all you fabulous people--notice how I used one outfit more then once?  xo  JC

"Carried" Away

So today was the first day of classes. This fabulous item of Jewellery I found hidden deep in my jewellery box and I believe it is my mother's..or my mother's mother's. Either way I could not believe I have had it all this time and never even worn it. It kind of reminds of something Carrie Bradshaw would wear..or perhaps that is only because Sex and the City has been on my TV constantly since me and my roomies discovered we have more then the basic 10 channels.  Another beautiful summer day here in Vancouver. Only more to come.  If you haven't gotten a chance to vote for me yet for the Nokia Style Correspondent Contest please help me out by Voting for me here. JC

C is for..Change.

I haven't been inspired today to get dressed up, however it is such a beautiful day out I turned to my favourite coloured Coach bag, my beach towel and my bathing suit and biked my way to the beach. You gotta' love summer. Only two more days and I start school! Crazy how time fly's when you're having fun. I entered my Nokia Style Correspondent Round 2 written entry last night, fingers crossed for round 3 please Vote for me as much as you can, every "like" counts!  I have come to terms with my changes and I am loving every single one of them. Change is good people, it keeps life inspiring. JC

Canada Day

Happy Canada Day!! Red and White may not be the typical colour scheme for the summer but today is an exception. Patriotic I know..but hey the little red dress never did anyone any harm. In-fact, Red was one of the top designer colour choices for the 2011 Met Gala this year. Stars like Jennifer Lopez and the always stunning  Gisele Bundchen were among many others rockin' in red. And today..the one and only Kate looked as elegant as ever in Ottawa.

Sending my love to all the Canadians and all the ladies in representing the red today. JC
