Friends visiting from Ontario this weekend. A stop over on their way to Asia for 8 weeks.  It was nice to have girlish chats, painting toe parties, bright lips, and dancing nights with bright lights. 

Happy Leap Day :)

Have you been Hattified?

Christine is wearing her Hattitude out and about town! 

Have you been hattified?

Do you have a photo of you wearing Hattitude? I would love to see you wearing it and how you styled it. Send it in or tweet me by clicking here
Thanks for sending the photos of you wearing my jewellery in. I love seeing them on other people so I can enjoy looking at them :)

Stink for the Arctic

Have you seen these strange and wondrous beasts

Tristan was reading BLURT magazine the other night and stumbled upon these majestic creatures. 
Check out the website, by clicking here...apparently even Kate Moss and her 9 year old daughter are sporting the spirit hoods. At 125 bucks a pop, I guess that's what's slowing people down from knocking down the door to get these gems 

The company seems to be doing great things for the environment though (all faux fur). Very socially active. So if this hat/scarf floats your boat, you should get one! They are kind of rockin'...and the company does real good by the's a win win. right?
They had this up on their website. Stink for the Arctic. Catchy. I like it. Maybe I'll skip the gym tomorrow. I'll be participating. Will you?

how we role...

Skirt: Thrifted 
Scarf: Thrifted (Vancouver) 
Belt: Thrifted (Guelph)

How this outfit came to be:
 - wanted to wear bright blue skirt, brought skirt out to vancouver (ask how many times worn it been out here so far...ZERO
- once bottom chosen, tank top for high waisted skirt with bold colour 
- belt was a no brainer (love this belt), gives outfit pop it needs (walked by the window of BCBG last week...had THE EXACT same belt in the window
- tights next, liked purple, it matched shrug
 - thought scarf gave pop to the outfit
-hair scarf was a necessity since hair was a wild fro styles day 

We saw The Descendants with George Clooney today. Only one more film to see and I've seen all the important oscar nominations. Overall I liked George and the plot of the movie. My money is on that winning best picture, only because I've seen the other ones, and they are nothing to write home about. 
I have yet to see The Artist, I'm holding out high hopes for that one. 

I think the cutest thing in the world is going to an afternoon movie and seeing a 1930's gentleman courting his wife of 50+ years, out for an afternoon movie date. We witnessed this rare gem of a couple today at the show.

a day of mural hunting

I've been trying to find a good spot to take my outfit posts...the balcony is kind of wonky and I'm sure you, like me, want to see it out and about town.

We found some really neat art works, but there are TONS of people around...and I feel mighty awkward taking off my jacket, and snapping photos in front of a ton of strangers. It has been freezing here as of late. The forecast is calling for a mix of snow and rain. Brr.

Perhaps I will try the beach setting tomorrow? 

Finally made it to the commodore ballroom two nights ago for Bombay Bicycle Club, Lucy Rose, and The Darcy's (from toronto. Represent). The show was off the hizzy, frizzle and gizzle. It was wild. So much fun, and great to see the venue. Agreed it's top 5 for venues, and for 1 ha

a weekend rivalry

start to the day...the last four days straight...

Can you tell my boyfriend is a Leafs fan and is trying to convert me? I've been to two leafs games this year. Ask me how many Leafs games I had been to before I met him? None.
Toronto was much more hospitable when we went to the game there, versus in Vancouver on the weekend. The Canucks fans are vicious...and a tad rude, when not donning the Canucks jersey.
I zipped my jacket up to the tippy top walking home, and held on tight to Tristan. Yes I was
quite intimidated of the crowds and streets of Vancouver, for the first time since I have started living here a month ago. I can see why they rioted over the cup loss last year...Vancouverites are sure passionate about their hockey.

Have you been trying to keep up on the oscar movies? 6 more days to see all of them. I've seen about half of the best picture nominations. I am a HUGE oscar fan. I watch it every year, and ever since high school I've been going to, or having oscar parties. We dress up, we give out prizes, we vote on the movies. See the photos below for a little glimpse into an oscar night. This year I'll be in Vancouver (I moved out here for 4 months) so I'll have to think of some way to watch the oscar's out here (we don't have cable). Maybe they are showing it at a cinema somewhere in the city or something? Any suggestions, would love to hear them. I don't want to miss out this year!
