Trendy Nails

      A trend I'm loving lately and have seen in already on a few of my girlfriends is the new
rocker-chic nail trend sweeping celebrities finger tips! This trend is all about having fun and 
getting creative with color and it's very easy to do.

       The accent nail was first spotted at New York Fashion Week, and now a stylish list of celebs
 who rock the look now. To get Vanessa Hudgen's look, you can purchase any bottle of Nicole by OPI


      To get the ombre look just pick five colors from the American Apparel Blues and Greens
 Nail Polish 7-Pack.Then starting with your pinky finger, paint each nail a different shade,
 gradually fading from light to dark.

FLARE Fall/Winter 2011 Trend Report

Hey gang!

This past week I decided to go shop around at The Bay again because my sister had not been to see the improvements. Of course we peeked at The Room and wished we had all the money in the world to snap everything up. While browsing through the shoe area I noticed Brian Atwood (world renowned shoe designer) sitting down being interviewed!! Unexpected and awesome. Apparently that Thursday night there was an opening party held there including guests like supermodel Jessica Stam, Canadian designer Erdem, and Fashion Televsion’s Jeanne Beker. I also saw a runway being set up for Friday’s Flare fashion trend report. I asked Desiree to come along with me so we could use this event for our feature story project. We would be quoting The Bay’s fashion director, Suzanne Timmins and a special guest.

We weren’t sure what to expect so when we arrived, we were quite surprised. Everyone in attendance was dolled in their best duds. We recognized more Canadian fashion celebrities such as Jason Matlo and Flare’s editor, Lisa Tant (the special guest giving us the report). We arrived early so we got the front row in front of the podium. We were served white wine and delicious hors’ doeuvres from Hawksworth. We also got a copy of October’s Flare and the first ever Trend Report issue. What a fun way to spend our Friday while getting some homework done too!

The Trends, according to Flare, for the F/W 2011 season: From Runway to Retail

1. The 60’s

2. The 70’s

3. Pattern Play & Vivid Brights

4. Man Up!

5. Boho Folk

Here are a few of the pictures Desiree and I snapped at the show, enjoy!

Getting Discovered!

As many Vancouverite’s are aware Downtown Robson Street is a well known venue for celebrities and model scouts who have produced many known models in the past. So, it is imperative to be well groomed and unique on any given day, because you never know whom you may run into or what opportunities might arise. Like for many, this was the case for one of my  friends and co-workers Zalina at Armani Exchange.
