It’s my very first time visiting the West Coast of Canada. I’ve already spent a week of yoga-ing, sea air, beautiful sunsets, for REAL sashimi albacore tuna and can’t get enough. Doesn’t help that Toronto is currently engulfed in snow and ice; I can hear the Twitter cries all the way from here as the temperature plummets. I feel for you guys, honestly, you’re on my mind every time I slide into my loafers with no socks.
This weekend we took advantage of the sunshine and toured downtown Vancouver. Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Cactus Club with some of the Kenton Magazine crew. I ended up finally purchasing a Louis Vuitton change purse to replace my old one. I think people were embarrassed to be seen with me every time I pulled out the what-was-once-pink Louis Vuitton change purse I bought myself in *gulp* high school. Seriously, I think my boyfriend just started to pick up the tab for even the silliest of purchases just so he wouldn’t have to see it. On second thought, maybe replacing it wasn’t the shrewdest of decisions… even though it was definitely the most stylish of decisions. And in case you’re wondering, I’m a classic monogram kind of chick. No Damier here, but I’d go for a good Epi leather now and then.
And don’t be fooled by the oversized Zara knit sweater I’m sporting in the photos – it was all for the look and less for the warmth. Although, once I get back to Toronto I’m sure I’ll be sleeping in it clenching a hot water bottle underneath each armpit. For now, viva la West Coast winter or lack thereof!
