Vancouver Fashion Week SS13, Adios Videos.

About a month ago, I was invited to attend Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) taking place at the Chinese Cultural Center. I was actually planning to upload several videos from the week long event that my husband shot and edited for NOTM. But unfortunately, the hard drive we had saved the videos on fell off our bed and went kaput. SO LAME!!!! 

I'm pretty disappointed because I had 4 great segments from the first and last day of Vancouver Fashion Week SS 2013, including interviews I conducted in Spanish with Mexican designers Daniela Villa and Sofia Palmero. 

Oh, and my interview with RACHEL ROY...gone. Bueno, there is still a little bit of hope that the videos may be saved. As I'm typing this, my husband is geeking out on the hard drive and re-installing a piece that was seriously damaged in the fall. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that it works. If not, then at least I have the memories, lol. Tik, tok, Tik, tok....

These photos are from the first day of Fashion Week Vancouver. Miraculously, I had these photos saved on my laptop, phew. Everything but my shoes was thrifted or a hand me down! Yup, even my vintage floral dress hehehe. 

Just wondering, does anyone else have trouble finding cute heels at thrift stores? Or is it just me and my big foot feet? LOL. Seriously, I can NEVER find a nice pair of gently warn heels at thrift stores. That's why I allow myself to buy a pair (or two) of STAPLE shoes a year, if necessary.

Right, back to VFW, I wrote an article for Proyecto Moda about day one, please check it out here and let me know what you think. 

I'm all over the place today, must be the cafe con leche :P


  1. Cute look! Loving your skirt! I hope you can get back your interviews! Happy Belated Birthday!


  2. Oh no, that totally bites about the broken videos! ;( Hope your hubby can fix the issue! I really love how there is a glow about you in these images! ;)

  3. Love the outfit Nina! I hope you can solve the problem with the videos!


  4. Me encantan los estampados florales, esa falda esta muy femenina <3

  5. I saw these pics on FB an was blown away with the gorgeous print. I norally can't find good shoes because I am a size 7 and all I ever find are larger sizes. Maybe we need to exchange stores.


Thanks for leaving the positive vibes! Many besos,bendiciones and buenas vibras. I will be sure to send them back!xo
