gilded

Adornment this holiday season and of course I’m kind of schitzo. Some days call for some flashy bling…my YSL ring does just that, gold, gilded, holiday perfect.

Do the feature finger bit too like my friends in Vancouver to hit it out of the park.

vans

A photo my other half took months ago of Steve Van Doren that’s in SBC mag. Like who doesn’t have a pair or two or three or a closet full of Vans? Thanks for the kicks Mr. Van Doren! especially loving the mens leather alomar, too bad their smallest mens size is still a half size too big for me.  😦

transition

Time flies and with no drastic change in temperature it goes without much notice down here. We’re still at a comfortable 90° in October and I’m daydreaming midst the heatwaves staring at pics of an amazing home in the mountains. Hmmm..to snap out of the heat and celebrate seasons when there are none with a trip to the montagnes maybe? retire the sandals and summer gear and let’s go somewhere cool? Season etiquette, do I have to retire my favorite Celine wedges this fall/winter? Is wearing espadrilles this time of year like not wearing white past Labor day? Or do I get a pass cause I live in San Diego where you really can do summer all year round. Thoughts?

So back to this house, Khyber Ridge that I’ve been admiring in beautiful Whistler, BC, a  jaw-dropping view and what do ya know? The owner of the dreamy residence was once roommates with my other half way back when they were kids living the dream, snowboarding for a living in gorgeous Whistler, of course back then not living in this house. Check it, there’s a lot to like.

Linda Evangelista

Remember this? It’s one of my favorite fashion photos, posted on my bedroom wall during my high school days in Winnipeg. Drop dead gorgeous Canadian model, Linda Evangelista back in her heyday shot by famed photographer, Juergen Teller. So very long ago and it was a page ripped out of what would most likely have been Harper’s Bazaar or Vogue. The latter being edited by the late Liz Tilberis, her many memorable collabs with photographers, Patrick Demarchelier, Pete Lindberg and the like always made me think of the world outside of my hometown and all the travelling to be done..

inspiration

Unpacking here and I’m shuffling through odds and ends. It’s strange to see what’s made it through all my moves, what my young self thought then was so important to keep. This old pic I ripped out of a Japanese fashion mag years ago, the sweater with the cut-outs, the holes for your thumbs was gonna be one of those things I would make when I’d get down to knitting. It hasn’t happened yet, inspiring nonetheless.

And cheers to Grace Coddington! the world’s most famous fashion stylist and much admired creative director celebrating 70 candles.

Cake? I’ll take care of that right away, fresh berries and whipped cream parfait from Whole Foods works.

fake problems

Mad men or tropical weather? Funny that that’s the conundrum I’m dealt with this week and yes, I’ve been heard harping once or twice about the fact that I won’t be home to watch the season premiere this Sunday, two weeks overseas and who’d ever think a trip abroad to tropical weather and great food would have any drawbacks. Anyways, the recording’s been set for Sunday and given that we’ve been kept waiting for so long already, what’s another 2 weeks really? You can bet though that I’ll be sipping on an Old-Fashioned at a local bar or restaurant in Vientiane just like Catherine Deneuve did in sweaty Saigon in Indochine, channel the ladies of Mad Men and wear my velvet printed heels that feel so dressed up and polished and wonder what went down.

Just getting there is the goal now, 17 hours on a direct flight and then a 1 hour flight to my destination, wowzers it’s gonna be a long one! bon voyage! hopefully some dispatches from the other side of the world too.
