Gucci Girlfriends Gigglefest
As I look back on my blogging journey, going on some thirteen years now (crazy!), without a doubt the greatest joy my blog has afforded me is meeting friends.
We had our annual girlfriend meet-up in Vancouver last week and were lucky enough to have our stay sponsored by The Blue Horizon Hotel.
Our massive suite was perfectly designed for four fashion obsessed bloggers. It came with two large bathrooms, separate bedroom, large balcony and wrap around windows that flooded the room in natural light and gave a spectacular view of English Bay and the North Shore Mountains.
Be sure to check out Abode, the hotel restaurant. I ordered the seasonal fruit crisp twice. I would have ordered it again had we stayed longer. It was so damn good it was shocking. Marilyn, the lady from the elevator seems to agree with me.
Three of us are vegetarians and were delighted with the varied selection available at Abode. I ordered the Veg Pappardelle and I’m still dreaming about it.
What else did we get up to in Vancouver you ask?
Every year we make a little trip to one of Melanie’s favorite consignment stores, My Sister’s Closet where Sherry was lucky enough to score several items, one of which she wore during the photo shoot.
We had fun playing mannequins in the window.
We always pop by The Used House of Vintage for a look-see.
I came home with this vintage maxi skirt…
Our meet-ups are very similar to many sleepovers I had as a teenager, filled with raucous laughter, experimenting with makeup, playing dress-up and numerous pillow fights in our underwear. Ha ha! I wanted to see if you were paying attention. We left the pillow fights out this time round ; P. The rest is 100% true.
Get Your Gucci Game On
You may remember our 20’s theme or last year’s Prom Do Over Night theme. This year was Gucci. As 90% of my wardrobe looks like Alessandro Michele’s vintage inspired Gucci it wasn’t a stretch for me.
We were lucky enough to have professional makeup artist, Suzy Thomas from Mac come by to do our makeup in the room before the shoot.
This is the first time I’ve had my makeup applied by a professional in some twenty years. We were all blown away by Suzy’s work. Somehow she translated each of our personalities perfectly via makeup. My lashes were so fluffy they reminded me of feathers! I felt if a stiff breeze came along I might up and fly away.
We enlisted the help of Vancouver Barbara to take some photos of us getting groovy in the Blue Horizon exercise and pool areas.

There were so many more hilarious out-takes but this post is going to take forever to load as it is.
Here’s To Friends!
They make my life infinitely more interesting and enjoyable.

When was the last time you and your girlfriends played dress up?
