BACK TO BASICS

BACK TO BASICS

Like everything else in this world, the key to a good wardrobe are the basics: a white t-shirt and your everyday pair of blue jeans. Five years ago I would have said these pieces were boring and not very stylish together because there isn't anything special to the outfit. Fast forward to present day and I now say the opposite - a classic white tee and and your favourite pair of jeans definitely go a long way (as an outfit on their own or mixed in with other garments). I find that there is so much beauty in the simplest of outfits these days, especially during the warmer seasons, and it's like Leonardo Da Vinci said, "simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication."

ASIAN STREETWEAR LOOKBOOK | COLLAB

ASIAN STREETWEAR LOOKBOOK | COLLAB

One of my favourite things as a lifestyle and fashion blogger is being able to collaborate and connect with like-minded individuals. This time around I teamed up with a few local bloggers (who I'm fortunate enough to call my friends in the blogosphere) to bring you all an Asian Streetwear Lookbook. What's exciting about this collaboration is that although we are all so different in style we are still able to come together and create something that appeals to each of our readers and viewers. In this lookbook, we all decided to wear an outfit that best represents each our personal styles

TONYVOUS x FRANK + OAK

I swear some days it's just so difficult to get out of bed - just five more minutes, but you actually mean five more hours. And once you've finally mustered the strength to move there's the next step of getting ready and deciding what to wear which ultimately makes you want to curl back into a ball and pull the sheets over your head all over again. Maybe it's because of what feels like the longest and coldest winter we've ever had in years, but I know I'm not the only one who's snoozed their alarms one too many times in the morning. On my laziest days, I try to make my morning routine as painless as possible - which means having my closet stocked with classic pieces where I can outfit my day within minutes and still look chic, effortless, and comfortable.

VANCITY STREET 002

VANCITY STREET 002

Vancouver's fashion scene is very small in comparison to the fashion capitals like London, Paris, Milan, and New York - but it is definitely growing... and quickly too! Last week, I was invited to the second installment of an underground event called VANCITY STREET - a night of fashion and style featuring local talent, and street style brands. And when I say underground I mean underground as the show was hosted at MIA, a local nightclub in Gastown that is situated below ground level where you are immediately greeted with tunnel-like hallways before entering the main room. The space also has a makeshift cave in the back, which I thought was so sexy. I mean, the models hanging out back there probably added to that as well.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Well, it's that time of year again! Time to break open the piggy bank and start shopping for someone other than yourself, even though you're probably going to be buying yourself a gift or two along the way. It's somehow already December and before you know it it'll be Christmas Day! I usually save my shopping until the very last minute and if you're anything like me, being in a mall with a bunch of crazy shoppers while frantically running around looking for gifts is the last thing you'll want to be doing. I know I can save myself the agony by getting my shopping done earlier, but that just defeats the rules of procrastination. So, to save you all the mental stress (nothing I can do about the sore arms and legs you'll have from all of your shopping though) I've come up with a little Holiday Gift Guide for the minimalite in your life.
