Page three The concept

So, I begin the fashion merchandising program in one week. I've been told too many times how small the fashion industry is in Vancouver and here's how I see it. I originally thought I would finish the program and fly straight back to London, emerging myself back into one of the most inspiring fashion cities in the world. That still might happen, however, I'm not leaving without feeling like I've done something to show the world what morsel of fashion exists in Vancouver. It is not always Ugg boots, LuLu Lemon pants and a TNA hoodie...is it? I'm going to start by showing fashion polaroids (well I don't have a polaroid camera, so just photos) of my friends and how super stylish they are! You'll see!

Page two Petite amie

In 2008 I left from Vancouver to London. Somewhere in between, I ended up in Paris where I bought these shoes. All those years resisting to dress up head to toe in lace, and I end up in Paris with the most beautiful pair of little lace socks!

Page one The beginning

Ok I'm just gonna write something! I'm thinking too much about it. I can remember always wanting to be like my two older brothers. So when my mom dressed me up, it was like the victorian ages. Lace socks with ruffles on the top, white lace nylons, a dress of course...with lace on it somewhere I'm sure, and my hair would be in two matching side braids curled up like two dog ears with barrettes that matched my dress. And patent leather shoes!
This was all then torn off around the house and a t-shirt and shorts was put on. I think I always kept my hair though, I liked having my hair done and everything else dressed down and ready to climb trees or something.
My grandmother would always knit me sweaters. Always in purple. One for me, and one for my doll. I was always more concerned with how the doll looked. Should her hair be in braids? should she swap this bracelet for the one on the other doll?
Perhaps this is where my appreciation for styling began?
