Last week I had the pleasure of learning about The September, a new online destination for designer shoe shopping in a gorgeous setting at the Shangri-La hotel in Vancouver. Surrounded by women with great taste and love of shoes, the conversations were naturally all about shoes! It was great chatting with co-owners Aynsley and Christine about how they started. I love that they truly understand Canadian shoe buyers and have a keen eye for selecting the best for the site. Hearing that this site offers free shipping, free returns, and no duty was pure music to my ears! I already have my eyes set on this stunning pair of Valentino rockstud Sling Backs in fushsia and am now looking for that perfect excuse to pull the trigger!

Club Monaco polka-dot top, Zara coat, Rachel Roy jeans, Christian Louboutin shoes, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, Tiffany & Co and LOVECOCO Jewelry
It's amazing how a dash of snow can add a whole lot of magic to an already beautiful city. We got a snowy surprise last weekend in Vancouver and I couldn't have been happier! While I'm sure the east coast has had enough of it, I really enjoyed this glimpse of snow in my city. It was the perfect kind of snowfall that melted on the roads but stuck beautifully on rooftops and tree branches. Naturally, we took the opportunity to get a few photos in. This sheer dotted blouse from Club Monaco is my favourite top at the moment and happens to be a perfect match to the backdrop! Keeping with the light and muted color scheme, I took my new 3.1 Phillip Lim mini pashli out for some fresh air. This adorable little mini bag was a last minute purchase from Barney's in New York. While I love all of the new colors in his spring 2014 collection, this "cloud" color with gunmetal hardware really stood out. It was only after coming home with this bag that I realized how versatile the color powder blue can be, which means you'll be seeing this bag a lot as we head into spring and summer!

While I was in New York, I had a chance to stop by Sam Villa's HairShow for their NYFW pop-up blowout bar. Not only did I have a great blowout experience, I was also pleasantly surprised by how my hair held up for the day in NY's harsh winter! I was impressed by their extensive line of professional styling products and decided to pick up a round thermal brush to try out. In addition to the ionic and ceramic benefits, I'm also loving how light the brush is! It'll take some time but I hope to turn my bathroom into a blowout bar and recreate the same look. Practice makes perfect, right?
