I'm taking this trip to NYC as like a journey into the Concrete Jungle, sort of like an African Safari trip but into a Sak's Fith Avenue and Barney's instead of the musky hot wild. Camo prints paired with black hues and neutral tones while accessorizing with luxuriously beautiful leathers and gold accents, I'm on the hunt for a new Spring wardrobe and I'm definitely not coming home empty handed if that means trampling over a bunch of 6 inch stiletto wearing Amazons at a sample sale.

Aside from being a fashion snob with a conceited loud mouth blog in Vancouver, I aspire to be a socialite or more so. . . a local misfit. Earlier in the month, I polished my penny loafers and put on my conservative pants and attended Derek Blasberg's "Very Classy" book launch at the ultra beautiful space at The Bay Downtown Vancouver, The Room.
Despite sporting a smart pair of reading glasses and a crisp white collared shirt underneath a collegiate Gucci sweater, who was I to fool the super suave Mister Blasberg, who graciously signed my book with more X's than my miserably failed math exam in high school. Clearly, I'M THAT TRAMP he refers to in his book. But hey, if the shoe fits?—WERK IT.
With a wonderfully organized event with stunning people at every corner of The Room, it was definitely a fashion night in the city with worthy mention.
Less than a week today, I'll be in New York City gallivanting the streets as though it were a runway. While in NYC I'll be spending money I don't have on an over the top wardrobe for spring and I'll be stuffing my face with enough food that could feed an entire orphanage because. . .I'm on vacation. Hell yeeeeah!
The best thing about being on vacation in a different city is the fact that you are a tourist, nonlocal, stranger. . .basically 'unknown'. Being born and raised in Vancouver, the city to me has become tiny and everyone knows each other and each other's damn business and having a local blog definitely adds more shine to the spotlight. Just being able to run away for a week and be a stranger is great but to be in a place like New York City where life is beyond vibrant, it's going to be amazing.
On another note, major love to the guys at SOLEONE LUXURY BASICS.I'm a strong advocate of simple basic pieces who believes that everyone should have a great supply of quality essentials, such as incredibly soft white-tees and ultra comfortable undergarments for the wardrobe. Perfect for everyday layering outfits or just lounging around in, Soleone Luxury Basics are terrific staples you all should check out.
