We have you covered for what to wear

One of my biggest style frustrations through the years has definitely been staring at a full closet and somehow not being able to find anything to wear for an occasion. As much as I like to be organized enough to plan what I’m wearing for the week, I’ve never been that kind of girl. As a solution to my problem, I usually head to Pinterest to check out some style worthy inspiration, take notes what occasion it’s best suited for and find something in my closet that would be the closet match to the look.
Since there’s still a bit of summer left and many more events that you’re probably heading to, I’ve teamed up with the stylist Brenda Longland from the Oakridge style team who also contributes her work to their style website “The Occasion”. I gave Brenda and her team the challenge of styling 6 statement pieces to wear for 6 different events coming up in Vancouver.

We checked out the new @WantEssentiels store in Vancouver and shared our list of favorites

There’s a new store in town and everything in it will definitely be on every fashion girl and guy’s “want” list. WANT Apothecary dazzled my eye during the store opening on August 7th with a modernized twist on a classic apothecary feel to the store (champagne was even served in test tubes). Interior designer Maria Rosa di Ioia used aged herringbone floors to elevate the feel of a warm environment. WANT Apothecary may be the new kid on our block but they’re certainly not new on the fashion scene since they also have locations in Montreal and Toronto.
Byron and Dexter Peart who are also designers for their WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie leather goods brand carefully edited the collection in WANT Apothecary. They were also recently featured in Vogue for their handbags.

New startup Wevorce is aiming to make divorce easier (and less expensive)

By: Amy Yew

There’s a cost to everything including separation. People who choose to divorce now face the high cost of financial turmoil usually associated to lengthy litigation during the divorce process. While prenuptial agreements have become the new normal, many still find it challenging to separate without some kind of financial burden.
There are many people out there who opt to simply stay with their partner because they can’t afford the divorce process. The transition from shared expenses to a fixed single income also puts financial strain on the newly divorced individual. Furthermore, the divorce process also put partners in an adversarial position which can severe the hopes of effective co-parenting when it’s all over.
