Fall'in for 3.1 Phillip Lim


3.1 Phillip Lim for Target top and skirt, Marc Jacobs bag, Kate Spade bracelet

While I'm no longer keen on waking up at 6 am for limited edition designer collaborations, I did manage to pick up a few items from the recent 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target collection online. None of the purses were available but I got lucky with some wearable pieces that are perfect for fall. Phillip Lim is known for his modern and chic designs and I'm glad the collection had a nice range of basics with twists. This structured peplum top with floral print is my personal favourite and it pairs well with the classic circle skirt from the line. This simple look was great for a weekend around town, enjoying a pumpkin spice latte. I hope you're enjoying fall as much as I am!

Embellished


J.Crew sweater, Oak + Fort leggings, Charlotte Olympia shoes, LOVECOCO pearl and chain bracelet


Who needs a necklace when you have a sweater that comes embellished? I love fall and this sweater weather but this time of the year also seems to be the busiest. That's what makes this jewel toned, fully embellished J.Crew sweater so appealing. You can throw it on and forget about accessories. To balance this rather "complicated" top, I wore a simple pair of leather leggings from Oak + Fort. This local Vancouver brand along with sister company Loft 82 are great for simple yet unique designs. To complete the look, I wore my new Charlotte Olympia Monacoco Linen pumps purchased from an unbelievable sale at The Bay! I love a pair of classic cap-toe pumps and these sky-high beauties will be treasured for years to come.

BC Derby & Best Dressed at Hastings Racecourse








BC Derby, one of the biggest days in horse racing, took place last month at Hastings Racecourse. From serious betters to casual spectators, the event attracted a crowd of impeccably dressed ladies and gentlemen. I was honoured to be a part of the excitement as a judge for the 2nd annual BC's Best Dressed contest. Let's just say it was a difficult task choosing only two winners out of over a hundred fabulous contestants. In the end, we crowned a lady in a gorgeous green dress and a gentleman in a top hat and tailcoat as BC's Best Dressed for 2013. The prize? Amazing $500 gift certificates to Jack & Jill Clothing and Baracos + Brand! If you missed out this time, be sure to check it out next year in September!
