Haute Gadget: Handbag Hangers & Tape Measures

I don't know about you but ever since I've learned that the bottom of a handbag has more bacteria than a toilet seat I have not been setting my bag down on the floor. It's hard not to put your bag on the floor when say you're at a cafe and there's no room around you...which is why this little gadget is so handy!!

Equal Parts Fun and Chic Please!


Judith & Jennifer

We spotted these stylish fashionista's at the European Haute Couture event at Hycroft House, Vancouver.

We couldn't resist the perfect red sundress paired with the jacket, definitely a style inspiration. She caught our eyes everytime she strolled past. Jennifer is wearing a red sundress she made herself, with a Suttles and Seawinds (Nova Scotian) quilted jacket by Vicki Lynn Bardon purchased by her grandmother in the early 1960s. Her look is accessorised with a vintage Gucci shoulder bag and BCBG heels.

Judith looks every bit timeless, elegant and classic; the perfect Chanel girl. Judith is wearing a Chanel inspired look and a Furla bag. The yellow gives the right punch of colour for a Spring afternoon.

Questions we had to ask Jennifer...

1) Favorite fashion icon?
 Right now?
Alexa Chung
Grace Kelly or Audry Hepburn

2) I always have in my handbag…
Clinique Black Honey lipstick, mints, a hairband and bobby pins

3) A big style no no?
A French manicure on toes

4) Must have beauty essential?
ESSIE Fifth Avenue signature orange/red colour

5) Favorite fashion designer/house?
Coco Chanel

6) Something nobody knows about you?

7) On a day off I like to...
Caress fabric and sew

8) What’s playing on your Ipod right now?
Black Sabbath

9) Guilty pleasure?
The occasional French Marlboro

10) Haute gadget?
My pearls

11) Men should…
n't wear their hair so short!
12)What's your bread and butter?
I am a designer. I work at Velle's and focus on interiors, most specifically custom furniture and upholstery. I absolutely love it!
Question we forgot to ask Jennifer...
What's the secret to those pins girl?!

Young Art...

Our very close friend moved into her first place this weekend. Whilst looking for a housewarming present, I came across the art website. It features many artists who I'm sure most of us haven't come across. Much of the art is very cool, contemporary and affordable:
'Heroes', Collagen, Marek Haiduk
'Marseille Freitag III', 2. Von Montag - Sonntag, Richoh Gerbl
'Stacks', Archive, Penelope Davis

Phi Spring/Summer 2010 RTW...

The Phi Spring/Summer 2010 RTW has all the ingredients from a signature Andreas Melbostad design recipe. Body con dressing, buckles, bandages and corsets in all the unusual yet interesting places. Refreshingly executed in a neutral black and white collection, it makes for a sell-out collection...

The Ultimate Skin Savior...

Those of you who know me know that I have very sensitive skin that's dry on the surface. Because of this, my skin usually feels a little tight, and my makeup doesn't sit well. I've tried a gazillion products, some end up being too greasy, some don't feel like they're penetrating into my skin, some don't moisturize enough...etc...Last November I came across Bobbi Browns 'Intensive Skin Supplement', and it's been my skin warrior throughout the Winter. My skin feels so soft and healthy, and many friends have commented that it looks clear, fresh, and radiant. I can't recommend this product enough. All of you girls and boys who have dryish skin, try out a sample, Bobbi Brown is available in most department stores across the UK and US, and in Canada it's available at Holt Renfrew. I usually squirt a drop on my hand when I'm about to apply moisturizer, it works really well for me like that.
