I’ve worn this outfit countless of times, and even blogged about it 2 years ago. I’m posting it again on my blog because of these awesome photos Greg Hector took of me during a break at work. He likes pit bulls, camping, fruity drinks, Volkswagen’s, anything vintage, anything in black or grey – you should stalk him on instagram: http://instagram.com/based_lavenderr.
Finally able to post photos from my Vancouver trip! Upon arrival, I was greeted with lovely roses from King. I really appreciate sweet little gestures like this ^_^ After freshening up we went to dinner with his friends at a Japanese restaurant, walked around Downtown a bit, had cheesecake then we called it a day.
On my second day, King took me to brunch at Granville Island’s public market.
Then we had dinner at Joey Burrard, I got a sirloin steak with blue cheese with a side of these delicious deep fried mashed potatoes! We finished our foodie date at Thierry Patisserie before heading to see Totem to break my Cirque Du Soleil cherry.
Speaking of firsts, I had my first authentic poutine!
My third day my boyfriend took me to all his favorite spots for coffee, ramen and ice cream then we spent the rest of the day hanging out with his lovely family.
This is my second time in Vancouver, and the last time I was here, it was during thanksgiving. It was gloomy, dark and rainy, but this city in July though! Vancouver is so pretty, very clean and has a certain european-esque appeal to it without being intimidating. So far, so good Van City.
I like packing light when I travel so I usually pack basics, like comfy sandals, versatile accessories and very light clothing that can take you from day to night. These culottes for example, if I had to change into something more appropriate for a night out, I would take the same pants, and necklace but match it with heels, a low cut halter top, gold earrings and take the strap off the same purse to make it a clutch.
This was the day I realized, I left my SD card at home. We were already in the island so walking across the bridge to go to a Best Buy or a gadget store would be too much of a hassle. We went around Granville Island looking for a memory card, we eventually found a store that sells them inside the public market. In the States, a good quality 16gb memory card costs about $9. I had to buy mine here for $30 – a 16gb micro SD card with adapter. The stingy Ilocana Chinese in me definitely does not approve.
I will talk about my trip later in another post, I can’t wait to share with all of you the rest of my photos!

I can’t wait to share with you guys photos from my whole trip to Canada last weekend. In the meantime, I hope this outfit post will suffice.
My Lucrezia purse is also making its blog debut. Smartest fashion item I’ve ever bought, the size and the 2 strap-options are perfect for travelling. It fits everything without being too bulky. It’s still small-ish enough to use for night time too, so you don’t need to take different purses with you when you need to pack light. The design and shape is very simple, more classic than the Antigona, kind of like Gucci’s Boston bag, or Louis Vuitton’s SC bag but its great subtle details like the triangular panels and hardware is what makes it more special.
More posts coming soon!

I still have so many photos I haven’t posted yet, taken last April with my long hair and before I learned how to properly do my eyebrows with eyebrow pomade. Hahaha!
Super warm weather calls for light fabrics and what better way to enjoy a hot date on a hot day than shopping at Melrose with my new favorite slip dress? I got this from Nasty Gal. Their smallest sizes are usually always big on me, but for this style it works because it’s supposed to look like I just ran out of clothes and wore my nightie instead. On point right? I finished the look with black leather and gold accessories to toughen up the look a little.
I’d love to know what your go to items are for summer!
