Sometimes I like to start my day by checking my e-mails, making that day's to-do list and drinking my morning coffee in my bed. Sometimes Benny likes to join me. Sometimes he likes to join me when he's wet from his morning walk. Sometimes I let him get away with it.
Obnoxiously Mixing Prints

"Hey Ash, is this too aggressive for the Obakki show?"
Sometimes I need a lifeline and have to phone a friend. Because sometimes, I actually dress like a haute mess.
Obnoxiously Wearing Obnoxiously Mixed Prints
Sometimes I like to wear obnoxiously mixed prints and 5 inch platform heels. Because sometimes, stomping around Vancouver like a T-Rex is cool.
Obakki's Fall/Winter 2011 Show
Sometimes I go to fashion shows. Last week, I went to Obakki's -- and it was great. I loved the dramatic setting inside of St. Andrew's-Wesley church and I especially loved the collection. I'll share more on this later.
Casual Business Meeting
(H&M trench, Forever 21 sweater, Vince tank, Something Else leggings, gifted Jellypop shoes)
Sometimes comfort is key. And sometimes, so is finding a great sale: I bought this cropped trench from H&M last week for only $10.
Pretending to be Ladylike
(T-shirt gifted from Bicyclette, Floral maxidress gifted from Banana Republic, Vintage chain, Cooperative shoes)
Sometimes I like to pretend to be ladylike by wearing pretty, flowery dresses. Sometimes (and most times) I don't really look that ladylike at all.
Sometimes I like to tweet. For first-hand Twitpics and "twitillating" conversation, you can find me on Twitter at @AHauteMess.
