Lykke Li!

First of all I think I must confess that I like love everything Swedish! I was very lucky to score 2 tickets to go and see one of my favorite artists, her name is Lykke Li.  I already had a female crush on her, now after seeing her live, I am just full on in love with her. I had the pleasure of going with one of my besties, Vivi who came all the way from Sweden to visit me(what a way to start a reunion!!) The concert was nothing short of amazing; the opening act was a local artist called Grimes, who is very talented and warmed us up. Then she appeared, in yes, an all black bodysuit: Lykke Li. Her whole concert was a mix between sadness and euphoria. We were lucky to meet another local artist and photographer named Maurice, my camera was acting up again and he was nice enough to give me his business card so I could get his photos(which are fantastic by the way!)
Oh life is good, let's all dance, dance, dance...

Coeur de Pirate

Life has been extremely busy. These past two weeks have been full of go go go. My boyfriend arrived and we went on a mini get away to a place called Comox, to visit some of his family members. The place we stayed at had both an ocean and mountain view. The three days we spent there, we feasted with his family, drank lots of wine and mostly chilled watching the rain. It is such a peaceful place. Since being back I have stepped right into a crazy week full of overnights, merchandising at work and trying to finish my collection. No rest for the wicked. I have finally been able to catch up on my sleep though and I feel somewhat sane again.
All of this just in time for a hop and a skip to the habour - to meet up with my TrichesTadiello gang on Granville Island. Thanks to Francis and Bruno for being the most outgoing, generous, giggly dates anyone could wish for. I must confess that I have a weakness when they are around me, all I do is laugh. The all-seeing eyes of  passing tourists and locals stared as we playfully staged a mini-shoot at the local harbour. I felt like I was on the Pirates of Caribbean block, I need more sunny and fun days like this.

DREAMS

Wearing: Vintage Wool and Leather Collar Jacket, American Apparel Lace Bra and Sexuality Top, Urban Outfitters Skinny Jeans, Polkadot Tights from Japan, Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag and Vintage Sunnys.

To view fashion from a designer’s perspective is to understand that every fabric, every cut and every seam on a garment is scrutinized, and then ultimately finished with a photo-shoot.This job is always inspiring. You work with new people almost every day. You use your creativity all the time and keep your mind and soul open to new things and to beauty. Being involved with so many different people. you kind of evolve along the way. This afternoon was one of those days, running around, getting things done, and still trying to look good in high heels(which is not my specialty, not just yet). The Trichestadiello's team came along to snap some pictures and to add some ideas to the brainstorming process. I am so blessed to have followed my heart, doing Fashion after university, and not getting a desk job. No offense, it is just not for me. I daydream a lot about beauty, infinite travels, poetry, the ocean, the sun and stars. I just can never sit still for too long...
