GARDEN CLUB/ 3's a Team


life happens and sometimes not everyone can make it, and thats okay. Collette Saul and I went to Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens in Chinatown to explore. See the rest of the photos after the jump :) 

Also, this was a couple weeks ago, and right now Collette is on a wonderful trip around Iceland and Europe for a couple months and something. Fun fact ;) If you want you can follow her on instagram here.

BRUNCH CLUB/ Brunch With Bae


HURRAY! The past couple days have been a total whirlwind of wonderful company and new experiences. Not only did Saul and I meet and photograph a wonderful new model on Thursday, but Saturday we FINALLY met Henry Bae from Solestruck with a classic Brunch Club welcome at the Alibi Room followed by a tour of downtown Vancouver. Later that night we went out for by Spencer's birthday party at The Biltmore which naturally led to White Spot the next morning with Reema. Post recovering from a food coma, Saul and I met back up with Henry and Melody Tan for drinks at Chill Winston in Gastown and then Souvlaki dinner at Stephos on Davie. These photos are the regular post-brunch outfit photos but enjoy anyways! Also, there's a fun little question at the end :)

OUTFIT/ Seven Layered Dip


(click photo above to view in Lookbook)

Hat - American Apparel | Cropped Neoprene Bomber - T by Alexander Wang 
Long Mesh - Topman | Skirt - Topshop | Tights - H&M | Shoes - Vans (Little Burgundy)
Leather Lunch Bag - DIY by Me!

I love seven layered dip. I love the layers of yummy salsa, guac, sour cream, mashed beans, and whatever other goodness is thrown into the mix. It's not a party until someone brings seven layer dip. The only relevance between the title and this outfit is that you can see the layers in both things, and I like layers, so (obviously) in my mind the two went well together. 

 

Make sure you stick around for the attempted jumping photos, I look awful, it's great.

BRUNCH CLUB/ Hip Hip Hooray!


I hate starting posts with apologies, but I apologize for not posting more! There have been so many things going on and I've been taking the lazy way by taking photos and saying I'll post them later. We all know that doesn't work so I don't know why I thought it would. Starting today I'm going to make more of an effort to update at least once/twice a week. I thiiiink I found a new way of editing that's less time consuming so hopefully that helps reduce the pre-post process. Let me know if you like it or not! :)

Alibi Room is our home base, you would think we were on a first name basis with the servers but surprisingly we're not yet :( Maybe this week…? Now that I mention it I feel bad for not knowing their names. I'd have taken their photos by now but I feel like thats kind of awkward, but then again, not as awkward as trying to avoid admitting that we went to a different place for brunch.

LCM SS15/ Day 3 Quik + Dirty




One of the best parts about LCM for me is learning about the ideas behind collections and seeing how the (usually fresh) designers follow through with their concepts. Only thing is that after reading so many LCM articles and reviews by some people who definitely, at the least, took a fashion writing course, I always end up realizing how uneducated and ignorant I sound - awkwardly and embarrassingly lumping me into the category of people who word vomit about collections at face value.   

That being said, I wish I had more time to research more or even just move to London to experience it all. In good time, in good time. As for now, and for future highlights, I'm just going to keep it simple.

Until then, see the highlights of LC:M Day 3 After the jump!

LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN SS15/ Warp Speed!





 IT'S THAT (SECOND) TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!

Get ready for a warp speed viewing of LC:M SS15. I'm not covering EVERY single designer but I will be covering quite a selection. LC:M is mah fav fashion event just for all the new talent that is introduced by MAN. J.W. Anderson, Bobby Abley, and Christopher Shannon are just a handful of really fresh talent that have been ushered into the spotlight over the past couple of seasons!

ENOUGH TALK, LET'S GET TO IT!

OUTFIT/ Fresh Cut - Touch Up


(click photo above to view in Lookbook)

Leather Cap - American Apparel | Bomber Jacket, Tassel Bag - Topshop 
Long-Length Shirt - Stanfields | Wrap-Short - Is Not Dead (Secret Location)
Printed Socks - Topman | Sandals - Dr. Martens


Finally got my hair touched up at JD's Barber in Gastown by Harvey and I'm so happy with it! Make sure to check out the gif after the jump for another 360 view sans the cap.

In other news, I found these two packs of long-length t-shirts in my dad's closet when I was looking for some "vintage" clothing last week.  Saul and I had watched Kill Your Darlings, featuring Dane DeHaan and Daniel Radcliffe, twice in the past two weeks. It's set in the 40s and based on the true story of American Poet Allen Ginsberg - I highly recommend it. Saul and Judah loved it so much they  wanted to dress up at Lucien Carr and Allen Ginsberg and take selfies but we needed the right wardrobe.  **Dah da da daaaa* enter dad's closet.
