Product of the Week - Shoelery

Happy Sunday everyone!  

I'm currently still recovering from my Fashion's Night Out induced coma, but I wanted to make sure that I brought you a Product of the Week this week.

I recently was on a ferry to the island, and while perusing the gift shop I came across this fabulous find....

Before I became a shoe enthusiast, I was often found wearing my favourite plain black pumps. Although the black pump can be versatile in many situations, this great product would have really helped to amp up my classics to be something original. 

They have absolutely everything from heel rings, to boot belts, to shoe clips, there is something for every shoe!

These heel chains are super fun and edgy, and the shoe clips can add a girly touch to your plain heels or flats.

I also really like these delicate boot belts because they add the perfect touch without going overboard.

All of the accessories are very reasonably priced and can be purchased online, or at The Bay stores around town.  For a complete list of stores or to buy online, check out their website here.

What do you think of Shoelery- by Erica Giuliani? Will your shoes be the next talk of the party?

Oh hey that's me in the Paper

You know it's Fashion Season when you're life goes from 0 to 60 in 3.5.... heh heh... But you gotta love nothing more.

After being apart of Fashion Night Out Vancouver, the most fabulous kick-off to the season, (look for coverage here and on the Social Life Magazine all next week), there is almost nothing that can top my week......

....except maybe seeing my face in the Westender Newspaper!

on line version here

A huge-mongous thank you to Kelsey Klassen from the Westender for this flawless article, and to Viranlly Liemena for the perfect photo!

The support I have received in the last year has been unremarkeable, and I thank my lucky stars everyday for the amazing opportunities that have been brought my way.

With that said, this is not the peak of Clarisky Business.... something tells me it's going to be a BIG season!!

P.S - If anyone has a paper copy of the Westender in their posession, I am almost willing to pay a small fortune for it. It has disappeared from paper boxes all over the city and I cannot seem to find one anywhere. :)

Fashion Night Out Vancouver

Hellooooo Vancouver!

September is now upon us and along with the fall weather, back to school shopping, and ecstatic parents, this month brings with it the most exciting season of all... Fashion Week Season!

This Thursday, September 6, 2012, to mark the beginning of Fashion Week Season, Vancouver is participating in its very first Fashion Night Out. FNO is an iconic shopping extravaganza celebrated all over the world. What originated in New York in 2009, as a means to support the fashion industry and restore consumer confidence after the recession, is now a global initiative participated in by over 4700 retailers.

Vancouverites are encouraged to join shoppers all over the world to celebrate a night of fashion shopping glam.  The night will launch at 5:30pm with a fashion show at CBC's Studio 40 featuring Vancouver designers such as Jason Matlo and Jacqueline Conoir, then shoppers hit the streets until 10 to take advantage of special deals, complimentary gifts, and live entertainment.

The main districts are Robson Street and Alberni Street between Burrard and Thurlow, but other participates outside of these areas are also participating. You can visit the Fashion Night Vancouver Website for more details on locations and schedules.  There will also be an after party at Bar None in Yaletown.

While all this information may be news to you, us fashionistas all over the city have been partaking in satellite events during the past few months to gear us up for this fabulous night. Take a look at some pictures below at a couple events put on by the fabulous Florence Leung of Fashion Showcase.
