The H&M collection features leather pants, a dark denim vest that we expect will be one of the first pieces to fly off shelves, boots, and the punk prodigy's trademark hoodies. Ranging from a mere $3.95 for small accessories to $199 for one of the leather jackets we're drooling over, you can also keep your feet fashionable this winter with a pair of booties for under $60!
Last Wednesday night I had the opportunity to attend a little blogger party at Spank Shop, a local clothing boutique. I've been there a few times before and there has not been one day that I left the store empty handed, either if its a nice piece of jewelry or a good piece of clothing I always find something there and this night was not the exception. The thing that I most excited me that night (beside the shopping and the meet-mingle with other bloggers)was that got to meet the amazing Sylvia Lee (a featured about her collection coming soon) , the designer of their in house brand, Lost and Found. (Which is really so wearable and at an amazing price , I got a pair of pants) and that I got to meet the beautiful Talya Macedo, the Social Media Coordinator of the Shops, and even the best thing of all is that this is a local shop!!!!!!!
Look at this amazing cape!!
It was a lovely evening full of shopping , nice greeting and mingling , enjoyed some champagne and delicious cupcakes from Sugar By Violet. A great night , loved it, so you better go and check out this great store . www.spankclothing.ca

What a perfect excuse now that Christmas is getting closer than to celebrate it with stars everywhere. Clothes, shoes, accessories, anything that you can imagine , and who better than Stefano and Dominico to give some spark to this season, the Fall-Winter 2011 Prada collection is full of stars, I need one or 2 pieces.
If you are not ready to go fully on-board with fur you can just add some Fur accents to yur outfit. Alexander McQueen brings you the signature box clutch you love in sumptuous, premium mink— and bedecked with the house's signature skull clasp, of course. And it comes in PINK!!!!
My second time being at Holly Boutique it was a really fun experience, especially because I got to be part of the audience of a mini stylist competiton.
The 3 contestans were to dressed up their models into 3 different outfits using the accessories and garments from the store itself, the compettion went for an hour and the judges made their decision after the 3 looks were completed. In the shop I met really nice and fun people and judge (just to myself) the looks that came out form the contest and they were all really good.
I must say I really like the shop, the brands, the selection of clothes and the PRICES are great!! Definitely added to my favourite stores list.
These are my favourite pieces in the store:
The looks are coming out of the fitting rooms for the judges to judge.
The judges giving their feedback.

Florence Leung the face behind this amazing Vancouver Fashion Showcase Event.
A few hundred fashion industry professionals gathered together last weekend (Dec 1-Dec 4) to celebrate the fashion and shops in Vancouver. Thanks to the "Vancouver Fashion Showcase Event" some of the local superstar shops and designers had the opportunity to show their collections and give us a little taste of what you can find in their stores.
The Vancouver Art Gallery opened its doors for photographers, stylists, models and designers at the Opening Gala-Fashion Show the night of Thursday Dec 1st, and that was the open night of what it was a weekend of shopping, music and fashion.
So I decided that Versace for HandM and me will make and appearance to the event. I made my way there around 7:30 PM (8 PM scheduled fashion show) , when I got in into the venue the staff was getting ready , some sweets and a beer were keeping me entretained while I was scanning the room and checking out what people was wearing (like I always do) I was a bit surprised to notice that not everyone was dressed up , I was thinking "the invitation it does say GALA , but I guess for some people that word means something completely different than for me.
Music ON, the show is about to start, the open act was a guy dressed up as Michael Jackson and he and one of the models had a little dance routine, it was really funny and a great way to start up a fashion show as with that everyone got in the mood to have a good time.
The show was great, full of different outfits from different stores and different perspectives ( I'm proud to say that I know the amazing stylist behind the outfits on the runway , the beautiful Nicolette Lang-Andersen) and even dance intermission and a closing music performance.
The clothes? Zippers in excelsis; suede and leather high-performance clothing; beading, crystals, and appliqué weighting jackets and tops. I loved so many pieces !! And dont even get me started in the dresses (from the Vancouver Art Institute alumns) , sooooo amazing!! I wish I could wear them all.
The goal of this weekend full of events is to showcase local fashion retailers, boutiques and designers that together, make up Vancouver's diverse and unique fashion community. The 3 days event started at The Opening Gala Top 30 Fashion Retailers Local in Vancouver ,following this kickoff event there were 3 days of shopping fashion events around Vancouver, in Gastown, Yaletown, West 4th, South Granville and Main Street.
Here are my favourite looks from the runway.
The Juicy Couture Faux-Fur Headphones are chic, stylist and warm. These are all about warm ears, faux fur glam, and a spot to insert our earbuds.
