A friend of mine pointed out to me the other day that I've been wearing more colours lately than my usual dark tones. Now that summer is almost over, I'm sure I will cuddle back into my blacks and grays in no time. Love this top's zipper embroidered seams and the intertwined open back. Umm, yea... I am obsessed with anything open back/backless :)

the heart of the matter

Aritzia at Pacific Centre

Aritzia had their fall/winter '10 Talula Babaton Trunk Show on Monday and it was exciting to finally try on some of the pieces I saw at the fashion show earlier last month. There were a lot more guests this time around than the spring/summer trunk show, which made it a bit difficult to find anything left in my size. Nonetheless, can't complain about a fun exclusive shopping experience surrounded by beautiful clothes, a stylish crowd, and the companion of cheese and wine. I finally bought the Wilfred gathered carrot pants that I drooled over at the fashion show [but in black] and will do an outfit post in them soon. The Talula dagger heart sweater in the last photo is even cuter in person but too bad angora makes my skin itchy or else I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Bought this Chanel silk blouse awhile back at Nordstrom Rack for almost 90% off - best buy ever! - and this was only my second time wearing it [its like the godfather of my closet. haha]. The make of the buttons alone is a work of art and not to mention the delicacy of the fabric makes me feel ultra girly to be in. Can't believe September is almost approaching...summer flew by especially fast this year. Enjoy what's left of it everyone :)

Love love love the new black jewel ring I bought in Venice Beach. Every time I look at it, I feel that it's telling me a story behind it. It rained over the weekend in Vancouver and feels that summer has cut short on us this year. Got a handful of mosquito bites while I was out for these pictures and now one of them has swollen up to the size of a tennis ball :( [and sadly, I'm not exaggerating]. I'm impatiently anticipating for my hair to grow long enough for fishtail braids; lately, out of desperation as you can see, I have been trying to integrate braids in all ways possible...grow faster please :)

left my heart in LA

Back from my shopping-packed weekend trip in LA and I miss it already. Didn't get to spend as much time as I wanted at the Getty and the weather wasn't in its best behavior that day; nonetheless, was happy enough to just be there. It's one of my favourite places on earth and also what I imagined heaven would be like.....seriously :) These are just a few random shots I took throughout the trip and I promise to do a proper fashion post this week.

p.s: Never realized how attached I was to fashforward. I somehow never got away a day without checking my blog while I was away. Thanks for all the comments from my last post; please show your love by following me [hopefully it could reach a two digit mark soon ;].
