These days I do a ton of shopping online - but when I am home in Vancouver, heading to the shops on Robson Street is one of my favourite things to do on a beautiful afternoon!

Some of my favourite stores live on Robson Street...BCBGMaxazria, Zara, Aritzia, Browns (and soon a Sephora) along with some delicious food stops (like Cafe Crepe) and the fact that it all outdoors, well that is just icing on the cake!

I have teamed up with Robson Street to offer a $100 Gift Card for BCBGMaxazria! The contest will run for a week and the winner will be announced via Twitter, and it is open for those in Greater Vancouver, please see all details and enter below ;)

Also, make sure to visit Jill & Lily to see their Robson Street Looks and enter for a chance to win their giveaway's to other great shops on Robson.

I am absolutely in love with tulle, it is so romantic and fun to style (hello Carrie Bradshaw!)

When it comes to Tulle, the ladies of Beautulleful know exactly what they are doing - their skirts are so perfectly crafted and comfortable to wear (see my last post featuring their skirt here)so I am so proud and ecstatic to have had the opportunity to work with them to create a very special A Fashion Love Affair Skirt.

Designing this Beautulleful x AFLA Skirt was such a cool experience...so neat to get to actually style a skirt that I dreamt up!

I wanted the AFLA skirt to be delicate & romantic, so I added a layer of lace and tiered the tulle at the bottom of the skirt to get that ethereal feel. It certainly makes a statement and was the perfect piece to bring along with me to New York Fashion Week.

These shots were taken in one of my newfound favourite places in The Big Apple, The High Line. It is a gorgeous park built on abandoned train tracks above the city, it is simply stunning! Definitely a must while in NYC.

You can shop the Beautulleful x AFLA skirt on the Beautulleful site, and we are offering a very special "Night Out" package deal with the XO Styling Iron as well, so make sure to check it out!

High Line Park- New York, NY 10011 - Hands down my favourite part of NYC! A beautiful park hidden on the old train tracks, it is a great spot to sit and relax and enjoy great views, fresh air and delicious treats (tacos, bbq, gelato, coffee, all delicious!)
Comedy Cellar - 117 Macdougal St, New York, NY 10012 - I love going to broadway shows while in New York, but I am also a huge fan of stand up comedy and for as little as $15 you can get enjoy an evening seeing big names like Louis CK and Dave Attell.
