Nailed it!

If Lady Gaga’s meat dress is the new black, then finger nails are the new accessory.

From OPI, ESSE to YSL, creative manicures are the new big thing.

The trend is 2 toned.  Here’s the “how to”:

 1)Pick 2 complimentary colors, I really like having one color be a metallic which I find works well with most outfits.  

2) File down those claws and apply the polish.

 

ROCK & BAROQUE by YSL came out with an entire line of nail polish geared towards the 2 tone trend!

Also note that we’ve move away from the square tipped shaped to more of a rounded, almost egg like nail shape. Classy!

My advice- rip off those horrible, plastic cat claws and opt for suttle length, choose a fall color (deep red, chocolate brown, navy blue, dark greenchoose a metallic (gold or silver) and try the 2 tone style! 

You’ll thank me later 😉

 This shittious ensomble was spotted in the docking area of Waterfront station.  YIKES!  This is the perfect example of the jean jacket gone so so so wrong. 

Not a look to rock,

OLYMPIC 411

I’ve been holding off from writing about this seeing as though the entire planet (exaaaageration) is… I like going against the grain, but this past week I’ve noticed some serious changes around the city.  Beyond asthetically and infustructure… PEOPLE are getting jacked up! I LOVE IT! Fiiiiinally.  We’re finally embracing the games.  But not everyone is in-the-know about what, where, when, of all the glorious things to do around VanCity- Not to worry peeps, Frank’s here!

Ok people, after hours of research I’ve condensed all you need to enjoy- SERIOUSLY enjoy the Olympics.

1) GET OUT AND ABOUT

So this comes with a bit of a reality check and attitude adjustment.  Yes this city is going to be crazy and yes getting around is gonna be silly times.  Make your peace with it and embrace the chaos!  Lots of you will be working wacky hours etc. and most businesses will be a bit more accomidating at this time, so take advantage-  get your pallies together and start a bit of chaos of your own 🙂

2) NO MONEY HONEY

Ok if there is 1 thing to take away from this post, this is it. Have you heard of LIVECITY YALETOWN?  Didn’t think so lol.   David Lam Park will feature a number of top local, Canadian and international entertainers on the stage, plus big-screen Olympic Winter Games sporting coverage, Olympic sponsor and partner pavilions, educational and family programming. Big named performers include: Default, Mother Mother, DJ SPOOKY, MATISYAHU, Alexsisonfire, Mariana’s Trench, SAM ROBERTS, aaaaaaand DEADMAU5…. yaaaa no big deal!!  For full sched http://vancitybuzz.blogspot.com/2010/01/livecity-yaletown-olympics-schedule.html

Ohhh did I mention— This is free? Gosh I love a deal!

3) GROUND FLOOR FUN

Simply put, get to ground zero for fun times! It’s estimated that a few thousand foreignors will be here within the first few DAYS of the games… Imagine all that fresh meat lol So seriously get to Granville, Olympic Village, Gastown, Robson Street- pretty much this is the best time to meat (haha I mean meet) new people that are here to party. 

I know the job of being host/hostess is a thankless job… Ok read between the lines. So really if you don’t have an amazing time during the Olympic games, it’s your fault cus VanCity has done its part. DO YOURS 🙂

Lots o love VanCity,

Frank’s Pick- Peeps With Steeze

This week’s picks for steezey Vancity kids!! 

~~~MY CHICK PICK~~~

Ashely H

  Her style is all about modern construction, clean lines and always quality first.  She is effortless.  Wanna look like her? A great place to start is Aritzia located all over the city-find romantic blouses, modern skirts, boyfriend blazers and basics galor…  and a favorite of mine- One of Few http://www.oneofafew.com/ for great bags and those one-of-a- kind pieces that will outlast the test of time. 

~~~MY BRO CHOICE~~~

King Will

 A Whistler native, Will’s style varies depending on the day; you might see him shredding in bright, 80’s synthpop gear and a few hours later, rocking a tux with a vintage bow-tie, jeans and obvi a neon green toque.  His style is a mix of boy- shredder meets city gentlemen. If Frank was a dude, I’d dress just like him.  Wanna look like him-  Second Wave North Vancouver skate and surf shop http://www.second-wave.ca/ and Retro Rock Vintage Clothing on Davie OR Commercial Drive for things your pops wore, like elbow patched blazers ohhhh yaaaa.   

There you have it people 🙂

Note: This is an ongoing series so if you’re fierce enough- you might just end up on my pick list. I’ll be watching (muahahaa ) I kid I kid.. But yah props to you VanCity boys and girls rocking the your own style fiercely- Stay tunned for next weeks picks.

Lots o love people,

Where to ring in 2010?

Heyoooo party people!

If you’re anything like me, you already know what your wearing tomorrow night… in fact, you’ve had this outfit picked out for quite sometime.  Now all that’s left is figuring out WHERE to wear it!

Unlike last year- people have been slow to pull the trigger on NYE tickets.  Friends have said that it’s because “New Years isn’t that big of a deal this year” “tickets are too expensive” “no one knows what they’re doing” “I’ll probably have people over,” etc etc etc.

So if any of these sounds like something you’ve said- cool noooo probs.  This post will give you a quick look at some of VanCity’s NYE fiesta’s- Tickets still available- deals on them still to be had 😉

In no particular order:

1) Party at the Library

Calling all book worms and sexy librarians! This NYE bash is definately out-of-the-box. Located in the heart of of downtown on Robson and Homer street, this landmark Romanesque concorse and moon-lit ambiance will provide a unique and stylish backdrop for the night’s festivities.  For invitations and tix call Jonathan Jassebi 778-883-8667

2) Masquerade @ Circa Resto/Lounge

NYE Party- Masks on @ Circa

 Circa is one of my favorite spaces. With its lofty high ceilings and arch-ways, 2 levels and romantic-edgy decore, it’s no surprise a Masaquerade theme was chosen. It’s a perfect fit! On a side note, there’s something uber sexy about mask’d men IMO.  Tickets still available at http://clubzone.com

 3) The End of the Raj @ Ginger 62

The End of The Raj @ Ginger 62

I’m always down to dress up! Dress like Indian royalty and be treated as such.  What court would be complete without the royal performers… this special evening will feature contortionists and manipulations by performers from Inner Ring, the hypnotic undulations of the ever-alluring Harem Dancers, and special Indian Royalty inspired performances by some of the city’s finest burlesque performers. Wow sounds amazing. Tickets still available at http://www.clubzone.com/events/Vancouver/174811/NYE-2010-High-Society-presents-The-End-of-the-Raj

 I did some research on events without tickets and they all seem to be resturantes such as Cactus Club @ Bental location,  Browns, Opus Bar, The Cellar, Lux At Caprice, The Lamplighter, Vanilla Room, SIP and a few others.   All these places don’t require tickets and will probably be just as much fun if you round up your pals and let loose!

So when making your choice, I suggest you consider

1) Are you going in a group + 5?  (pick a no ticket place)

2) Do you want to stay in one place all night? (pick a ticket place)

3) Do you want ambiance, decore, costumes, service, luxury? (pick a ticket place)

4) Do you want to dress up? (pick a ticket place)

5) Do you want to pick up? (either or! just bring your game)

AND REMEMBER- either way, your fucked by our cabs, so choose wisely and plan on staying downtown till the weeee hours of Jan 1 2010. 

Stay fierce people!!

~Frankie
