Turn on the lights

April 5, 2017

Did someone just flip a switch?  As much as I love the spring, and try to embrace the wardrobe change, I cling to my blacks and darks. As soon as the weather brightens, I feel a bit like an evil spirit coming surreptitiously out during the daylight hours.  Suddenly I feel compelled to bury...

Picture this...You're meeting with a real estate agent for the first time about to view various properties in the hopes of making a purchase. If you live in Vancouver, this would be substantial money (an understatement). Your Real Estate agent stands in front of you, she smiles warmly..but you l...

What's in a name....

April 20, 2016

'What's in a name' said William Shakespeare...is this a coat or a jacket...'that is the question'! (ok maybe not the coat/jacket part). Upon feasting my eyes on this, my first thought...'it's a jacket'. However after deliberating, and a quick poll..I discovered...it r...

'Walk this way..'

October 7, 2015

I suppose if one more person mentions that walking is good for you, you might want to just throw a shoe at them (not the good ones though).

only one Tobias...

September 9, 2015

How do you establish if your beloved, much worn suit is dated? Sleeves too wide, are there 'Dynasty' quality shoulder pads. Perhaps, simply put, your body has changed over time and your once 'coveted' 'go to' suit now just feels awkward. The jacket itself has a history going ...

Beyond the blues

May 13, 2015

Jean jackets. We don't mind sitting on them, throwing them on the ground, or stepping on them...generally treating them with the basic disrespect shown to dishcloths...but try parting with them.  Not so easy because we love our jean jackets. They're a wardrobe staple and have been since...

Linen reigns supreme

April 8, 2015

Linen is a fabric that, in ancient times, would have been worn by the wealthier class of society.  In fact, it was a very important source of trade and commerce.  Which might explain why we're all drawn to it. Of it's many beautiful qualities, durability and breathability insure it...

50 shades of black...is still black

February 12, 2015

In my opinion, February needs a bit of a kick in the butt. Doesn't February make you feel like you would like to go to sleep and not wake up until June? Perhaps it's the endless blocks of pedestrians tempting fate with the head to toe black (and of course the rain). Whatever it is, a titilla...
