It only took a trip to New York City, a three month waiting list and a slap in the face by Canadian customs with a tariff charge so LARGE that it hurts to calculate how much this bag costed me in the end. . . but it's finally mine and I am going to parade around town, as much as I please like a buffoon who could give a rats' ass about anyone else's business but his own.

Scarves are my most favourite accessory in the winter. Not only do they have the great function of keeping you warm but they are also a great way of putting a little punch of colour to complement any overly neutral coloured outfit. Scarves also serve as great concealers for that, "OHHH MYYY LORDD!! There's a stain on my shirt" overly desperate moment, which happens to me all the time.

The scarf pictured above happens to be my current favourite. It's so big and chunky that it feels like I'm wearing a giant neckbrace. And unlike the many other silky, chiffon and dainty scarves I own, this one will definitely keep me warm. . .or do a better job at hiding that giant spilt coffee stain on my shirt.

Whats your favourite accessory for winter?

Stub me in the toe with a stiletto and call me a hypocrite because I went against one of my fashion beliefs and sported 'sweatpants' in public... well to a major store launch party to be exact.

I attended the wonderfully organized and impressively excellent Joe Fresh Flagship Store Launch Party in Downtown Vancouver this past weekend. Mixed, mingled, batted some lashes *ahem*Adrian Mainella*ahem*, gossiped, stuffed my faced with delightful treats while washing it down with champagne and rubbed elbows with some of the most beautifully fashionable people in the city. So without a question, it was a wonderful time indeed.

Aside from the party, the new Joe Fresh flagship store is crisp looking, simplistically modern and definitely FRESH. Although I was quite disappointed with the very limited selection of menswear the store provided, it's a good place t o pick up basic garments without the hefty cost that other retailers may charge. But when you're someone like myself, who has just about every single basic wardrobe essential under the sun, a white tee is the last thing I would ever want and because of that, I'm definitely not afraid of shopping in the woman's department for myself. Hey if it fits, it fits, so why not? And if you couldn't already tell, these drawstring sweatpant leggings form Joe Fresh are womens. Good to know that I can fit a size 6 quite comfortably.

New shoes make me happy. But what makes me even more happy is I'm finally now the 2nd person on the waitlist for the Mulberry Oversized Alexa in OAK. Its been a long wait of over two months since I pre-ordered it when I visited New York in July, but its been well worth the anticipated wait.

Gosh, I can already smell the sweet buttery scent of its leather and feel of its lavishly supple body in my hands! Gaaahh!

On a side note, I just bought a MacBook Pro and you can call me stupid because I still don't have a fucking clue how to use it. This blog entry took almost twice as much time to do on a MacBook than it would on my old PC. I'm either completely clueless like the class ditz or I'm over complicating things like the analytical person I am. . . I need HELP! Hot tech nerds ahead of the line and inquire for details.

Much love and thanks to Eric & Trevor from Terracotta in Vancouver and Tinu of Side View Magazine for throwing Vanessa, Lily and I such a wonderful soiree last weekend. Also, to all the family, friends and fans of The Haute Pursuit, Bleed for Fashion and myself, The Starving Stylist, thanks for the love and support by attending!

Who would have ever thought that parading around in fancy duds and snapping narcissistic pictures of yourself in awkward poses would get yourself a party thrown in your honor? Now if only could score an all inclusive paid trip to Paris or a designer handbag that was named in my honor, I know I’ve made it.

Event photos soon to be posted.
