Hat - H&M | Sweater - Topman Design (AW12) | Leather Jacket - Topman 
Leather-Look Culottes - Zara | Ninja Sneakers - MBMJ 

Haven't been on in a while, let alone post an outfit update. I'm slowly wrapping my head around my new work schedule and things are finally calming down a little bit. Now to catch up on SWAV, and the cluster of unedited photos and editorials piling up in my computer.

For anyone that hasn't been in my personal life loop, I'm now working at Topshop/Topman Richmond! It's kind of a little half-promotion, and kind of the same as downtown except with a MUCH smaller team which means more mannequins for me to dress! The new store is QUITE a bit smaller (like the size of Topman Downtown, but the whole scheme of the store is quite beautiful and feels really boutiquey and spacious. Behind the scenes though, it's extremely different - our stock room is literally a hallway. After having the privilege of working in a store with LOTS of back-space, adjusting to the Richmond setup has taken a couple weeks but after some re-organizing and cleaning up, I'm feeling a lot better and when I leave work I'm not totally wiped out.

Topman Richmond is a totally different story. It's half the size of Topman Vancouver and placed in the middle of the Bay's mens section on the second floor. Also, it has ceiling tiles - I avoid looking up as much as possible. I'm going to leave it at that before this just turns into a boring rant about how weird it is to have Topman on a different floor from Topshop, not to mention having women's lingerie and cookwear as adjacent sections.

OUTFIT/ Full Moon Blues





Hat - Hudson's Bay | Denim Jacket, Clutch - Topshop | Jeans - Acne Studios
T-Shirt -  Jil Sander | Shoes - Vans (Little Burgundy)


Must be the full moon because not only and I wearing jeans but I but wearing denim on the top and bottom? This one's of the books you won't see this in a long time. I'm serious!

I'd just like to give a big thank you to Danielle at Charles and Grace Jewelry, not for her wonderful festival accessories as one would think, but for her ex-boyfriend's Acne jeans. It's been a long time since I've even considered wearing anything denim on the bottom half of my body, but this pair was the right size and seemed to do the trick and it's Acne so why the hell not.

BRUNCH CLUB/ Playing Catch Up


WOOPS so it's maybe been a month… *goes to check* OH GOD, it's been TWO months since our last B-Club post. Last one I posted was when Henry Bae from Solestruck visited us in Vancouver back in early July. To anyone who still cares about Brunch Club, I apologize, to anyone who doesn't, I don't apologize. Just know that we've still been going to brunch and taking photos, which is what this post is aaaaalllll about!

DRESS UP/ KTZ AW14


Photography: Marchel B. Eang
Styling: Saul Alviar
Models: Summer from Family Management 
and our friend Judah (unsigned)
Featuring looks by KTZ from Kokko

Sometimes Kokko at Aberdeen Center lets us borrow their new-in clothing to shoot with and this time they threw some KTZ at us. First thing Saul noticed was the swastikas printed both forwards and in reversed in a maze-like pattern over a couple of the sets.


Obviously I didn't think much of it in my AW14 review back in January because I didn't even care enough to post one of those looks hahaha.

OUTFIT/ Simple Sunday




(click photo above to view in Lookbook)

Haircut - JD's Barber | Shirt - Topman | Shorts - Alexander Wang | Sandals - Topshop | Bag - DIY

I realized that when I use my "NEW OUTFIT" header over my outfit photos, some people might think I took a little shopping trip, when indeed I did not. In this case, these are all things I've had all summer but never worn together. When I say "New Outfit" sometimes, yes, there will be new purchases, but for the most part it'll be a new paring of items you may or may not have seen already.  Just thought I'd clarify :)

Saul and I went to Metrotown on Sunday to use these Dairy Queen coupons we had. 2 for 1 Relish Dogs and Blizzards Yummm. We usually share a mini Blizzard so I don't know why we thought getting a small each. Our friend Logan described it perfectly as "a deceivingly small cup of cake, sugar, and milk". First few bites and you're in heaven-but make it past 10 and it's all aboard the fat train to the bloated city. Somehow I always manage to finish the rest in shame just out of *getting my moneys worth* and it still tasting awfully good.
