Deighton cup 2014 was amazing! Not only was the event filled with awesome people dressed in 1920’s style fashions but there was delicious food by Cocktails and Canapes and great musical entertainment too. This is my second time going to Deighton cup and some how it’s good every year. Maybe it’s because they always pick days with excellent weather or maybe it’s the type of people the event draws. Either way you look at it, what a great day to be in Vancouver!

Outfit Post: Printed Patterned Shirts

June 12, 2014

Printed patterned shirts have been popular for a while now but I feel the real secret to wearing them is the fit. With this outfit I’ve paired my button down shirt with brown drill shorts and white Sperrys. Also, buttoning your shirt all the way to the top will gives it a trendy sophisticated look. Try it!

Outfit details:

Paisley ShirtT – ZARA MAN
Drill Shorts – Made and Crafted Levis
Striper CVO Color Dip Sneaker – Sperry
New Wayfarer Glasses – Ray Ban

Vancouver Fashion Week 2014 Fall/Winter Photos

March 30, 2014

Vancouver Fashion Week 2014 Fall/Winter x Chinese Cultural Centre of Vancouver March 19-21

This post is mostly dedicated to Vancouver’s Sara Armstrong Mens Fall/Winter Collection. In these photos you can see her design for Menswear pieces were more on the standard side. I think the oversized look is more of her theme with large sweaters, hats and scarves. What do think of it? Leave your comments below.

The growing trend of pop-up shops got us thinking, and Solestruck seemed like an obvious choice – modern design and fashion go hand in hand,” says Digs founder and co-owner, Gretchen Knudsen, “We’re a lifestyle store, so adding shoes to the mix just extends our product offering within that framework.”

The temporary pop-in-shop will kick off with a launch party from 7:00pm to 10:00pm on Saturday, March 8th. Attendees can sip champagne, try on the season’s freshest footwear styles, enter a raffle for one of several free pairs of shoes and enjoy a goody bag chock-full of swag with their purchase.

Personally, I’m glad to see another store like ZARA come to downtown Seattle because I feel like it gives shoppers more options for ready-to-wear off the runway apparel and also now I don’t have to travel to Vancouver, BC to purchase their clothes.

Portland Style interview with Bob Davis

February 3, 2014
#PDXANTONIO

During my journeys walking around downtown portland, I found some time to interview the experienced Bob Davis, about Portland style and how people put things together. Bob Davis can be at imogene + willie, located right outside the pearl district (Downtown Portland’s shopping area).

Who are you and how long have you been in the Portland fashion scene?
My name is Bob Davis. I have lived in portland almost 8 years. I moved here to direct and buy for a local apparel retailer so I have been in the scene from the start.

How would you define your personal style?
I would define my style as a mix of classic, casual, vintage inspired. My foundation is a tee shirt, boots and jeans, then i build from there.

How would you describe the Portland fashion scene?
The portland fashion scene is as diverse as the residents but inspired by 3 distinct influences; the outdoors(think patagonia), sport(think nike) and rugged individualism(think filson).

In your opinion are there any trends shoppers should be looking out for?
In general I am seeing a DIY, mashup of vintage, rugged outdoor and tailored suiting. Also wool is important, fashionable technical outerwear, boots and denim.
