blogging under the influence

posted on: March 22, 2012

juuuust kidding!  i wasn't actually drunk, but i had consumed one single alcoholic beverage and because of the sheer fact that my body seems to reject booze, my face was a bright shade of tomato red (hence the blue amaro instagram pics).  wore this little number to the rosewood hotel georgia last night for jacquie sommerville's 'my fat little rule book' pre-launch.  she even read a little excerpt of her book, about a struggle to balance a love of food with a love of fashion.  pretty much the story of our lives, i just know it's going to be everyone's new favourite read!  was super lovely to catch up with some of my fave local peeps, and i'm very excited for my fat little rule book's release!  (more event coverage on vancouver daze)

  20. I love your blog! So excited I found your blog through the fashion bloggers map. Following you via bloglovin

  21. I noticed that you said that youu can't drink? Not that I'm a boozy, but hey, there is nothing wrong with a little blog and a beverage. Adds some spice to life. You look beautiful! Love the leaoard print cardi and skirt, hope you had a fun day!

  22. Ha I know exactly how that is... I just need a few sips of wine and I am sooo red. Really embarrassing! It's good to know that I am not the only though ;-)

    So sad I missed out on this event. Was planning on going but then didn't come back home on time from a quick work-related trip. It looks like everyone had a blast! I really like this outfit on you - I think it's the first time I've seen you in a mini skirt. Looks great! Loving the spike-y necklace as well.

    Have a lovely weekend! xo Leonie

  30. My face gets really red when I drink too. I actually heard that that is a sign of an allergy to alcohol. But if that's all that happens then it's nothing serious (phew! lol).
