Coming up soon - Faustine from C'est La Vie

What I find most inspiring is people taking something old, typical, used, ugly, beautiful, odd or strange and making it their own.  A couch that would normally look bland and boring can be spruced up with a couple of fantastic pillows or an upholstery change and it will have a personality that matches the owner.

I feel the same way about clothing.  I have a good mixture of vintage and modern items and love the process and result of mixing it all up to create a look that expresses who I am at that given moment.

One my favourite spots is C'est La Vie, a vintage shop that also does consignment in the trendy Main Street hood of Vancouver.  I've been a consignor and a shopper for years.  The owner, Faustine, is what I call an Upper Crust Bohemian Parisian.  She's a bit different - from her clothing choices, her eclectic taste in music and her quirky ways.  She is passionate about vintage clothing and has a wealth of information to share.

So now that we're getting into spring cleaning mode, she'll certainly have some tips on what is hot for Spring and maybe even point us in the direction on some cool combos that we can try with what we have in our closet.

Stay tuned... Faustine and I are going to share some wine and chat, and you get to hear all about it.
