Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to style a window in one of Vancouver’s best boutiques, Barefoot Contessa. I had a fantastic time and left feeling incredibly impressed with the boutique, the products, and the staff. As most of you know, I tend to gravitate towards more feminine styling sensibilities, so it’s no surprise that I spent several very happy hours sifting through all their ultra-femme pieces before finally getting down to work. I may or may not be going back tomorrow to shop…and by that I mean I am. And I’m pretty excited about it.
pics, I’ll have to go back at night to shoot some more!
So for my window, I decided my theme would be Vogue magazines (which is obviously fitting given the name of my blog), and my personal style icons who often grace the pages inside the magazine. I picked each of my outfits with one (and in one case, two) of these ladies in mind…see if you can guess, I’ll tell you the answers at the bottom!
I have to thank my friend Heidi, she lent me quite a few
of the mags in the window and is a true sweetheart.
LBD’s, buuuuut like I always say, if I’ll wear it all the time, I should get it.
So…I’m getting it.

If you ever happen to be wandering around Vancouver and are looking for a good place to shop, head over to Barefoot Contessa!
They have two locations, one at 3715 Main Street and the other at 1928 Commercial Drive, and their phone number is 604-879-1137. Thanks to Lauren for setting up the whole thing for me! Hope you guys like what I did :).
