I don't know much about football, but I can speak fluently in Prada

I was never good at sports and probably will never [EVER] be, but I can sure look the part if I ever 'attempted' to play. Whether or not I could catch the ball or not, I'm a good runner even in my Gucci sneaks because my agility was built from all the dashing I've down around town to warehouse sales to sample sales.

I may shoot a basketball into a hoop and shout "Touch Down" or run to first base during baseball and ask for the goalie. And the only 'Polo' I will ever know is by Ralph Lauren and the closet thing to tennis I will ever get to is by wearing Lacoste. I don't know much about sports but if styling entire outfits for a group of 15 models for a runway show with one hand tied behind my back and one eye closed in 15 minutes was considered a sport…well... I'd be an Olympic Gold Medalist.

“I have an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day.” 

This quote above is an oldie but very much a goodie that still makes me utter "Amen to that" underneath my breath every time I stumble across it. Despite having probably more than enough clothes to dress an entire small country, I loathe when a perfectly great outfit is wasted on a day with no irrelevance or is not worth mentioning without giving a heavy eye roll.

It's like dressing up and putting on your best look hoping to bump into that tall dark haired beauty in the glasses with the briefcase that goes to the same Starbucks as you every morning while on your way to work. You just keep hoping they would just notice you… just for a second as you bat your lashes while you stand coyly but nervously with your Balenciaga weekender clutched in your sweaty palms as you try to keep cool and refrain from blushing bright Valentino red in the face…

I've never done that before. I swear. I don't even like Starbucks. Uh huh. Yup. Sure….*heavy sigh*

With that said, if "I didn't see anybody important today, I'll wear these same clothes tomorrow". A major fashion sacrilege it may be but no good outfit should ever go unnoticed.


I like my fashion HIGH and my cars FAST

Nothing more fabulous than spending a gorgeous sunny afternoon at the beautifully serene Van Dusen Gardens in Vancouver for the annual Luxury Supercar Weekend over this past weekend.

I sipped on champagne, nibbled on some delectable treats, sampled exotic premium spirits, posed & pouted for many photographs, checked out some major sweet rides and of course gallivanted around the park with some of the best company of friends. I don't know much about cars unlike I do about fashion and designer labels, but I will say, like an Herm├Ęs Birkin bag is to a Ferrari, you have to definitely admit that there is some major quality craftsmanship and beauty that is put into these stunning vehicles.
