Refreshing my color palette and going nude on one of Vancouver’s more summery days. Not the kind of nude you see at wreck beach, but the lack of color definitely makes me feel bare.

I know you can’t tell the order in which I put this look together, but I ended up caving at the last minute and adding this blood orange bag. I guess my color resistance is pretty weak.

Also, bringing back the hair I had when I was a brunette, I guess it’s also partial to avoiding too much of the same color.

A girl’s got to have her iced lattés and Terra Breads in Olympic Village has the b-e-s-t.

This is probably one of the most neutral outfits I’ve ever worn (no patterns, mom!).. but I really wanted to showcase this amazing headpiece my girlfriend handcrafted, I’m so proud of her! It’s in the shape of a steampunk-esque eye and I just had to borrow it for a shoot because how often do you have the chance to wear such cool art.

Keeping it short and sweet today. Muted tones call for bright backdrops and windy days call for capes chopped up from old dresses.

Plus, my birthday is coming up next week and I have nothing planned. I don’t usually plan anything because I’m not the biggest party animal, so what’s left for a 21 year old to do if not get wasted and spend your birthday losing pieces of your weave and forcing down vodka shots?

VFW Day 7

For the Vancouver Fashion Week finale, I was honored to be wearing a custom one-off dress by designer and friend Connally McDougall, to her SS15 collection.

Krista was working at the Pantene booth for some of VFW and worked some much needed volume & curls into my hair for 2 of the days. So grateful for this woman!

I met Connally last season at Vancouver Fashion Week when she was chosen as Niche Magazine’s emerging designer; I was pretty drawn to her as it was refreshing to find someone who was so down to earth in a room full of self-absorbed members of the fashion scene. Seeing her again this month was like falling back into a routine, she had moved to London since I had last seen her, but she still had the same sweet demeanor and I was glad to see her showing her new collection.

She says the last year of her life has been a hard one, but from the hardship has blossomed a beautiful collection that is as honest as the pages of her diary and thus, deeply appreciated by the audience, you should’ve heard the cheering.

The yellow theme was chosen for a few interesting reasons: for it’s scarcity among general color preferences and for the strength it evokes while remaining pleasant to look at. One topic has remained the same though, Connally has kept all her pieces wearable for the modern woman without sacrificing much of anything. A collection that has something for everyone, but at the same time has kept an element of esteemed flavor.
