Fashionable Eats: Tracycakes, Fort Langley

I have recently become obsessed with fancy high tea lunches and cupcakes...and I am justifying this post being on my blog by calling it Fashionable Eats! It's a perfect girl's day out, and while it isn't necessary, dressing up is always encouraged. I wore jumbo pearls and a pastel orange draped top for the occasion. The treats were simply delicious, in particular the London Fog cupcake, which was SO good I decided to use them as a little inspiration baking project (to come in my next post)! You can get a sneak peak at the other cupcakes they serve in the pictures below. I also had their vanilla bean tea, which was equally as tasty as their cupcakes. I was too full from their tall tower of treats that I didn't even get to try their whoopie pies! Next time!

High tea has just become my favourite thing to do in Fort Langley! There are not very many reasons to dress up fancy on a daily basis, but this place is good enough reason for me. Cheers to dressing up, snacking on sweets, and sipping tea!

Look of the Week - White Rock

I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite summer hang outs! I thought it would be a perfect place to do my first every weekly outfit post. The pier was full of grads taking pictures in their suits and gowns; we tried to avoid ending up in the background of their photos while trying to take our own! I wish we had had more time to have fish and chips (which are AMAZING from the restaurant Moby Dick’s on the main street)..but we did make time for some babycakes from Traceycakes! They even came in adorable little take out boxes! How cute. And they also happened to have the root beer float flavour, and I LOVE root beer. I’ll be doing another post later on showing a lot more of the places in White Rock and some of the other great eats they offer.

You’ll soon come to find I have a love for retro style, and a lot of that comes out in this week’s outfit post. Black and white accessories and red lips are classic and dressy, but I’ve toned it down with a breezy blue blouse here. Roll up your jeans a bit to give them a more summery feel, and it shows off the shoes better too! All in all, a look for a day that's not quite summer hot, but still feels light and summery!

And so it begins..

Hello fashionistas!

This marks my very first post here on my blog Vancouver Vogue! I have waited a long time to start this blog, to make sure that once I start I have the time to keep coming back every week. You can read more about me in my profile, but essentially I am a Business student majoring in Marketing, and dreaming of a career in fashion. I hope to post little inspirations to me, DIY projects, outfit photo shoots, my own personal designs, and MUCH more as time goes on! I will also try to keep you updated with local fashion events and chic and fun things to do in and around Vancouver. If you have something you wish me to write about or if there is something you would like to see here more often, please let me know! As I am just starting this adventure into the fashion blogging world, your suggestions are infinitely helpful and much encouraged.

I look forward to hearing from many of you as time goes on, and wish everyone a fabulous week!
