Out with the old and In with the new

Well, a nice update for you all…tomorrow Eva and myself are moving into our new downtown apartment! The last time I posted I was discussing my time searching for one and it’s great to know all of that is out of the way, Hello Yaletown neighbors!

Moving to a new place means packing up all of items. If you remember the old post on my closet or follow me in Instagram you know that my closet is an entire room… imagine fitting all of that into one small closet, it’s so not happening. So, I’ve had to downsize and I will have a ton to sell at the Vancouver Blogger Sale shortly. As I’m going through all of my items I’m finding pieces that bring back so many memories. The ones that tugged at me the most were all of my Las Vegas dresses from my very first trip there ever. That place feels like a second home for my girls and I, in fact Las Vegas is also the home for several poker tournaments. We went during the World Series Of Poker and my dresses from that trip were by far my favorite…. yes I did try them all on again while packing, no I am not ashamed and YES I will be selling some of them during the sale.

Speaking of, I could really use a trip to Vegas right now. The colder weather has got me wanting warmth and sun but at least it isn’t too cold out, I don’t need a jacket. I like the idea of mixing denim shades together, do you like my Canadian Tuxedo? I cuffed the bottom of my jeans to compliment the tone in the shirt and since denim can be a bit ‘blah’ I added hints of gold and the tangerine Chanel polish for that pop! Without the heels and bag this outfit can be a bit ‘yee-haw!’ so let’s hope I don’t go anywhere that I need to remove my fab heels.

On a side note, I just had my hair cut by Mark McLeod from the Kore Salon in Vancouver. In a nutshell, hes seriously amazing! For the first time ever I’ve had my hair cut the way I want without barely saying what I wanted and I left the salon feeling like I needed to go out for drinks and enjoy my hair style. He travels back and forth between Vancity and New York at the Arrojo Salon (if you’re in NYC he goes by the name Hunter) so let’s all make an appointment with him shall we? What girl doesn’t want the hair stylist for Versace to do their hair? (check my instagram for photos)

Closet Confessions: Amanda Swanlund of Twenty One Two Designs Inc.

What do you get when you mix interior design and fashion? You get the classically chic interior designer that is Amanda Swanlund! We all know her as the owner and designer of Twenty One Two Designs Inc. but now we get a chance to raid her closet.

Every time I’ve seen Amanda I can guarantee that she will be in a patterned silk dress with colorful heels or denim pants and a bright patterned shirt. She may have her staple outfits down but her outfits are definitely anything but ordinary. Are you ready to be inspired by the woman who loves sparkle and color from the home to the closet?

 “This dress was a no brainer for me- I’m OBSESSED with emerald green right now, especially paired with an animal print like the snake skin.”

“My pointy toe Louboutins are my best shoe purchase to date: they are beyond comfortable and can work on any occasion.”

“Statement necklaces and bracelets are my go to when it comes to jewelry. I love bright colours and most of all- gold!”

“I love having a mix of colours and textures in my closet every season to keep things current and fresh. My inspiration board is constantly changing and evolving by season, what project I’m working on and what is inspiring me at the moment. I plan on making a really huge one soon and covering it in a beautiful fabric. This pearl bracelet was handed down to me from my late grandma. She had impeccable taste in jewelry.”

“My go to outfit for the work day is a great silk blouse paired with dark jeans and a blazer. I feel the most comfortable in a chic top.”

“These shoes started my love affair with emerald green- they go with everything.”

“J. Crew is my go to for brights, stripes and polka dots! The way they style their catalogues blows my mind everytime. It’s brilliant.”

“I’m a huge fan of colour blocking and these shoes fit the bill.”

“My tiny office is my go to for hours of design work. Even though it’s small, I can get a lot accomplished in this space.”

“I chose to go with affordable Ikea furniture in my office, but put a personal spin on it by getting gold hardware and spray painting the shelf brackets gold to match. Zara is one of my favourite places to shop for shoes. These cobalt suede heels were worn on my 28th birthday. I love a sequined clutch that adds a bit of sparkle to any everyday outfit.”

“I’m not a huge jewelry person, but I die for an amazing statement necklace. They just make an outfit.”

“These shoes reminded me of the famous Valentino bows so I couldn’t go home without them!”

“My engagement ring is the most beautiful and special piece of jewelry that I own. This Bird by Juicy jumper is near and dear to my heart- I was wearing it the night I got engaged in Montreal! The highest pair of heels I own and hands down the sexiest. I got these shoes in Vegas on a trip with my mom.”

“My first designer bag was purchased in Paris at the flagship Louis Vuitton store on Champs-Elysees. We waited for hours to make our purchase, but it was well worth it. This bag goes everywhere with me!”
