and we're off!



heading over to pender with phil for the next few days, so i won't likely be back to regular posting until after the christmas holiday. seasons greetings everyone - kick back, eat some great food, read a book and spend some quality time with your loved ones.

xo - seki.

hahaha.



seriously, we vancouverites do not know how to handle this weather.

on a practical note, i totally caved and bought myself some sorel caribous yesterday - my feet are toasty as all get out.

listed: scent of the freaking year.



no, i am not joking. burger king has released a meat-scented cologne. called 'flame', just in time for the holidays, and it is being touted as 'the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broilled meat'.

please do yourselves a favour and check out their new website, devoted to the cologne: www.firemeetsdesire.com. it's unbelievable.

oh! holy! night!



partytime again. my place. tomorrow night. 8 or 9-ish. byob and cocktail attire MANDATORY. or kris and will make you listen to the jonas brothers on repeat.

leave me a comment if you have questions - word!!

yep, it's wintertime in vancouver.

and in keeping with frugality..



i will continue to emphasize consumer affordability. essentially, it's easier on the conscience and on the pocketbook to be spending on accessories as opposed to full outfits - especially in this, the chilliest of economic climates we've bundled up to in a while.

plus, i get to indulge in my obsession with fanny packs. borba margo's s/s 09 collection is especially lovely.

me likey.



floral braces that i would like to have in my top drawer.

hot shit. little shilpa.



i was browsing through the kingdom of style last week and stumbled upon some of the coolest necklaces i'd seen in awhile. i wanted to post about them then and there, but was having trouble finding any images. so i emailed the designer shilpa chavan with a request, crossing my fingers, and lo and behold she replied the next day!

she has got some of the freshest accessories i've seen in ages - shimmering threaded brocade sari pieces in plexiglas (for reals), and headwear ranging from astronaut-like helmets to purely romantic lace confections.

super, super dope. check it!

listed: la beaute sauvage.



remember the it girl posting about grace jones a few months back? well check this shit out - it's full-on surrealist commercial for the citroƫn cx, made in the early 80s.

miss jones, how do i love thee? let me count the ways..

a lengend passes: bettie page.



50's pin-up legend, s & m persona and bettie page just passed away last night from pneumonia; never regaining consciousness after suffering a heart attack earlier this month.

unknowingly, a force in the sexual revolution, and a cult heroine, she spent most of her life out of the limelight, turned to religion, then later battled with acute schizophrenia.

she was 85.

sweet.



fresh pickies with the new cammie. don't we look like we just got most of our christmas shopping done. because yes, that is the case.

ye drops shit. i drop science.



first look! mr. west gives us a sneak peak at his new clothing line (about effing time..), 'pastelle'.

check it.

hot shit. nouvelle nouvelle.



i really love this store. it is nestled in the heart of gastown and it has the cutest shit. i was with amelia when she bought the purple version of these suede ribcage earings by manimal early on in the summer, and i've been poking my head in and out of the store ever since. i'm also completely head over heels for their yokoo knit chains. i want one.

i've also had my eye on their amazing manimal navy mocassins for about the last 6 months - christmas presents anyone..?

lots of lovely vintage pieces, and they also carry leanne elroy's line. amelia and i saw her show it for the first time at the vancouver sustainability conference last year and were stoked on it.

check it!

listed: advent calendars.



seriously, it feels like i just blinked and all of a sudden it went from summer to mid-december - where have i been for the past four months?

i even forgot to get an advent calendar, usually my most prized of holiday possessions (except for the giant toblerone the mom dukes stuffs in my stocking). guess we're going to have to pick one of those up tonight..

so, i know it's been awhile, but.



sorry i took so much time off - i've been one heck of a busy bee this past week or so.. but check it:

lindsay lohan has a new collection of leggings out, under the label '6126'. cool, whatevs. but seriously - these bad boys with KNEE PADS (see above) are called the 'mr. president'. for reals.

looks like a little tongue in cheek never hurt a girl. or her designer aspirations.
