Weekend Inspiration – Summer Love

Always been a big fan of Karla‘s style, and her love for vintage jewelry.

This recent photo of her at Santorini, Greece is just beautiful – sparkling sea, her adorable polka dot outfit, and of course, those amazing vintage earrings!!!

Have a great weekend!

Latest Street Style from Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a very fashionable city.  It’s home to almost every brand from low to high around the world.  There are ten Chanel stores in this city alone!

While walking around on my last day there, I tried to play street photographer to capture some of the stand out styles on the crowded streets.

It was really fun, but I apologize that some pics are a bit blurry…it is not easy to walk, shoot and try to be discreet at the same time. LOL.

Inspiration from Hong Kong

I will be travelling non-stop for the next few weeks for work and pleasure.  First stop is Hong Kong!  Really look forward to meeting some business contacts and catching up with some old friends out there.

I will be saying hello from there soon.

For now, here’s a little inspiration – some of our favourite street style photos from Hong Kong.

Bazar St. Michel in Montreal

I was in Montreal last weekend visiting friends, and had a chance to pop into one of the flea markets in the city just an hour before closing – Bazar St. Michel.  Flea markets are usually a hit and (a lot of ) miss.  But I saw some great vendors and amazing finds, especially for home furnishing and accessories.  Because I went so late, a lot of them have closed up already.  I did, however, manage to get a few goodies.  Worth a visit if you are in Montreal next time.

All in the Details….

Just for fun, I snapped a few pictures of what I’m wearing today… comfortable clothes with a little twist.

Easy to dress up by putting on a blazer to go to meetings, and still keep it comfy when working on designs in the studio.

Perfect Sunday Afternoon

It’s a gorgeous day in Vancouver today.  I spent a lovely afternoon with hubby at the Granville Island market, and checked out the new graduate student exhibit at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Sunshine, ice cream, flowers, and art = perfect afternoon!

Unconventional Bohemian Approach

With Coachella, beach vacay, road trips, and summer just around the corner, we are lusting for anything that’s boho-glam.

Our Livia necklace draws inspiration from the free spirited colorful Gyspet (“Gypsy + Jet set”) lifestyle – “an unconventional bohemian approach to life” . An eclectic mix of semi-precious stones, beads, and vintage charms offers many wearable options.

Check out this insta-collage of  Livia II necklace.   Can you count how many ways we styled it?  It’s one necklace, but lots of possibilities.  

rule #1: Don’t follow the rules – Make it your own!


 Livia II necklace – turquoise, corals, raw ruby, and vintage charms.  Handmade in Vancouver, Canada
