Style Inspiration

19 Sep

I’m always looking for inspiration… Because I’m such a boring dresser, I look to inspiration in magazines, fashion bloggers but not so much to people on the streets (mostly in Vancouver the uniform is leggings, Canucks jerseys and Aritzia – which I can’t knock because it’s my wardrobe staple). I look to certain bloggers who elevate style and beauty to that next level, makes it wearable off the runway and makes you think “hey, maybe I can pull that off too!”

Certain Vancouver fashionistas come to mind: my good friend Nicole of lemodedujour who can rock a leather motorcycle jacket and a tutu like Carrie Bradshaw and Lily of bleedforfashion who reminds me that red lippies are not just for evenings but for whenever the $*£#% you want, just because you can.

I stumbled upon Peony Lim in the Stylelist coverage of NYFW, sitting on the steps taking a break, in a beautiful floral Anna Sui sundress, red pumps, a Fendi snakeskin bag (how bold!) and red lippie, and I’ve been entranced ever since.

I love her chic yet timeless style (she does hail from London), pretty yet bold pairings and that hair ohlala! She’s young, beautiful, has a great sense of personal style – we’ll be hearing a lot more of her soon!

And yes, I did venture out of my comfort zone this weekend and rocked Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life all weekend!

    Peony Lim is absolutely stunning! I saw her at New York Fashion Week at QingQing Wu VLOV. Chinese-English chic at its best.

    Girl, you are too kind! Thanks for the mention, but damn, I ain’t got nothin’ on Peony Lim – that woman has amazing style. And don’t even get me started on her hair.. god damn. Love all the photos you chose, it shows a good range of her style. You also forgot to mention the purpose of WHY you wear bright lip colours *wink wink hahaha
