One of the few things that has excited me thus far

These shoes have been on my mind for a while. With the great pairing of a yellow jean trouser these shoes aren't noticeable at first glance but when you do look the detail is astounding. The wearer is not trying to achieve that often lackluster one second POP. She has created something that makes you go "Hmmmm" and reflect for the rest of the day (which is what I did) Yes, I am a basket-case when it comes to accessories.

The Bold and Beautiful

  In Banff (the only place with a Louis Vuitton) when I spotted this couple.It was a very cold day and I was in clothes that were appropriate but still made me wish for a hoodie and some sweatpants. After seeing these two I sucked it up and stood a little bit straighter. First of all I think that it's sweet that the guy is matching his lovely lady and that he's posing for this picture. Effort is key. Sometimes it seems that men think that they can get away with those baggy trousers and horrendously unfitted shirts. Let this be a lesson learned boys. Whether this is true love or just really great style for a night out on the town I'm glad I saw it.

In the begininng

I don't know when my fascination with fashion started. I think that it was when I bought my first vogue; the December 2008 edition with Jennifer Aniston on the cover. I cannot remember what possessed me to buy it but ever since I have been captivated by clothes and more importantly the people who wear them.  When I look at most blogs the people who are pictured are in sunny locations. That's not reality for me anyway. I spend more than six months every year in weather that is below zero degrees. I'm going to EXPOSE you to people who dress for the weather but manage to show their personalities. I hope that through this blog I can show you my Edmonton.
