August 29, 2012


I'm in Calgary! It's crazy... one minute my move felt like it was still on the horizon and the next I was arriving in a new city with only one suitcase in tow (okay, two if you count my mini roll-on). Since I arrived a few days ago, I've been busy getting settled into my new apartment and starting work so unfortunately haven't had the chance to explore much yet.

In the meantime, I thought I'd share a few photos of what I wore to Cee's going-away dinner at Au Petit Chavignol last week. Unlike my own comparatively boring move one province over, she and her husband are off to Paris for a year (lucky ducks). It was great to see some of the blogger girls again; I will miss the Vancouver blogging community a ton while I'm away.

Tank: Wilfred (Aritzia) / Skirt: Club Monaco / Sweater: Delphine (Aritzia) / Headband: Primark
Boots: TopShop (similar) / Bag: Miu Miu (in black) / Bracelet: gift from Mexico

Me, Cee, Alicia, Lynn, Leonie, Sheryl, Randa, and Jen

  4. It sounds like you've been so busy with the move! Hope you are settling in well! I just love that headband!

  5. Welcome to Calgary, Alison! It may not be the most glamourous city out there, but I know you're going to have a great adventure :) And probably shake up the fashion community, too. You looked absolutely fabulous the night of our blogger dinner. I especially loved that sequinned headband. Not an easy piece to pull off, but you wore it beautifully :)

    Glad to hear you safely arrived in Calgary. As I mentioned before, I mostly heard bad things about the city, BUT that was from outsiders. People in Calgary seem to actually love their city (good for them) ;-) I am sure you'll have a great time anyway!
