Closet Confessions: Alicia Quan of Captial Q Creative

We all know Alicia Quan as the fashion forward blogger from her personal style blog www.Aliciafashionista.com. Spending her many years in the fashion and retail industry she has moved over to her love of social media with her boutique company Capital Q Creative giving Vancouver businesses such as Subway, Establishment Lounge and Trim Salon (to name a few) an online voice.

No matter how busy this g0-getter girl is I’ve always seen her looking dressed to the nines in her classic Alicia looks! One great aspect about Alicia’s style is that she is always having fun with shapes, colors and patterns and it definitely shined through when going through her closet, which was jam packed with each!

If I could describe Alicia’s style in a few words it would be romantic, indie and always fun!

“Love adding a little daytime sparkle to an otherwise basic outfit, like the hint of gold in this sheer black jacket.”

“My mom got me this cute jewellery box last Christmas to help organize and display some of my faves.”
“I think every girl should have some statement necklaces in her jewellery collection!”

“I’m all about pattern and colour!”

 
“Nothing wrong with layering a bunch of jewellery!”

“Colourful scarves are a great way to brighten up my neutral winter coats.”
“The pattern and colour in my wardrobe definitely carries over into my shoe collection.”
“My go-to everyday wear is a pair of trousers, printed blouse, jacket, and hat.”
“Hats are my shopping weakness.”

“There’s no way to define my jewellery as one specific style, I tend to just buy what I like.”

” I always keep my fashion books close to my closet, just in case I need a little inspiration.”

“When I moved in with the boy, there was NO way I was going to share the small bedroom closet with him.  Instead, we purchased and built an Ikea Pax wardrobe and it has worked out really well.”
“I adore standout pieces like this leopard print fur coat.”

“Organized chaos.”

“This Pixie Market dress was my fav purchase from a recent trip to NYC.”

“My birthday is coming up and this outfit is a big contender.  Emerald green and gold are a perfect match!”

>Shopping Finds – a few weeks in one

>Gah! I’ve been so busy with my I See Noise prints that I haven’t found the time to sit down and do this shopping post! I’ve been wanting to do one since I had my surgery 4 weeks ago when I stumbled over to H&M on double T3s and did some shopping (PS. Not a good idea).

I’ve been obsessing over my latest items and can’t wait to share them with you guys! I’m sure there a few items that you’ll go grab yourselves.

The infamous floral cropped pants from H&M for only $14.95! I can’t wait to wear them more often, and the H&M Blazer for only $39.50 is probably the most perfect blazer I’ve owned. It cinches at the waist, is the perfect length in the arms and fits the shoulders. Overall – a great purchase. You may recognize the fuchsia Blair Ritchey clutch as well!

I finally used my Zara gift card that Eric had gotten me for Christmas – it took me forever! This top is super cute on, fitted yet billowy and easy to wear. It has great texture and a lot of fun to style!

I went into Club Monaco to pick up some new denim and left with an entire outfit! This silk motorcycle jacket is hard to NOT wear. I’ve wearing it for days and it goes with many outfits – it’s lightweight for easy wear and perfect for a warmer day. The white Club Monaco tee is a staple. You can get a white tee anywhere but I prefer the texture of this one – it’s a bit thicker and has a few design elements that steer it away from a basic tee.

I nabbed this gem of a necklace at Violet Hill Boutique in Richmond. I was drawn to it immediately and had to have it! It’s so simple to wear but has that wow factor with the outfit. Designed by Belle Noel in collaboration with Kim Kardashian.
This astrology sign bracelet is also from Violet Hill Boutique. It works perfectly with cute arm parties or just on its own.

Elysia Samy from  DeLysh Design makes great monogram vases and it was the perfect addition to my coffee table. She’s made some super cute bunny vases for Easter!
C/O of Social Experiment this super pretty and simple chain bracelet. It’s the best when I want to wear something on my wrists but don’t want to pile on the arm parties. You can see more from Social Experiment by clicking on the advertisement to the right side bar.
I bought this necklace from The Doctor’s Closet during our Vancouver Blogger Clothing Sale for only $5! I’ve been able to wear it as a necklace and a bracelet and am trying to find a way to wear it in my hair for a pretty boho look.

Lilac nails are in! They really had a pop of color to my outfits (as seen in the photo below) and throw in a touch of Spring time to cheer me up from this drab Vancouver weather we’ve been having!…it SNOWED the other day…IT’S MID MARCH! Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac

>6 squares of a weekend

>

It’s back to the Monday grind for most of you – I have a ton to do this week. It’s a big hard to prioritize so many to-dos throughout the weekdays but luckily I have my pretty “Things To Do” list that keeps me on track!
I got accepted to partake in the Portebello West Market March 24-25 to showcase my I See Noise Prints! If you’re in the area make sure you stop by to get your own print and some other great items from the market.
Also, today Erin from The Sparkle announced the winner of the I See Noise print giveaway! Congrats to Kristin Brophy :) I will be sending it out this week for you to drool over! For those that didn’t win, don’t worry! Leonie from The Signature Bow will be having an I See Noise giveaway of her own!! Stay tuned on her blog to watch out for it.
Anyhoo.. How was every body’s weekend? I had a fun filled one myself! I thought I would share some snippets of the pretty things from my weekend for those of you that don’t have Twitter or Instagram!
Enjoy! xoxo
