When I think of The Great Gatsby, I think of lace, pearls, jewels, and exotic head wraps.  It’s a film where luxury and opulence are bountiful.  To take a style cue from this flick, based in the Roaring 20′s, I opted for a flattering white lace dress.  To keep that 20′s feel without getting too flapper costume like, I went with a modern ombre print scarf that I knotted and tied up turban style.  I also went with a 20′s inspired t-strap shoe but in a modern nubuck leather.  Accessories like this tassel pearl necklace, large gold cuff, and sequin clutch complete the look by adding some luxe.

Diamonds are always in season!  Recently,  I had the pleasure of enjoying a Breakfast at Tiffany’s style morning.  I sipped coffee, nibbled on fruit and macrons, while slipping various diamond creations on to my fingers.  Basically, it was the perfect morning.  I was at West Vancouver’s beautiful Kiss & Makeup boutique to check out Canadian Jeweler, Anne Sportun’s, collection.




This Toronto based fine jewelry collection was a lovely combination of finished and raw diamonds.  Each piece felt completely unique and special.  Weather it was a rare paraiba tourmaline pendant necklace, a whimsical diamond ring, or stunning sparkler earrings, it was hard not to fall in love with Anne’s pieces.



Anne Sportun can be found at Kiss & Makeup in West Vancouver, or visit them online.

I am a huge supporter of shopping local!  I love going to local boutiques for unique finds and special-not-found-everywhere-items.  I have some favourite shops that I try to frequent but I’m always happy to discover a new haunt.

Last Friday I had the pleasure of having breakfast while do some shopping at Kiss and Makeup boutique in West Vancouver.

I was able to buy tons of cute Christmas prezzies.  Since my family and friends read

my blog, sharing pics of my purchases are a major faux pas.  Sooooo, instead I thought I’d share with ya some of the things I would love to have on my own wishlist.

Tons of cute and cozy goodies including Hunter socks perfect to keep your toes warm in your wellies!

They carry a great mix of fashion, accessories, and beauty products.  Some faves I found were Stila Daydream Palettes for $24 and Lipgloss sets 8 for $33, Remi & Reid sequin cross body bags $58 (Confession…one of these came home with me for me.  It’s gold and fabulous.) , Fresh oval soaps $16, and tons of other great fashion items too.  Their fur jackets and vests were AMAZING!

Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers or a special prezzie for your bestie, this pretty shop has it.  They even have some items for your fella.  For more info on Kiss and Makeup, visit their website by clicking here.

Happy Shopping! xo
