I met Girl of the Week RACHELLE MORGAN at Vancouver’s first Cupcake Challenge. Dressed oh-so-chic on a Sunday, I had to stop Rachelle for a snapshot. A girl on the go – Rachelle is a SFU Communications student who also interns with both Portobello West Fashion & Art Market and Nicole Marie Events. You can follow Rachelle on Twitter @chellemorgan.
Wearing…A black leather jacket from Danier, a floral dress from H&M, black jewelled flats from Sterling Shoes, Hue tights, a silver Guess watch, pearl earrings from the beaches of Mexico, and a Nine West yellow crossbody bag.
Fave places to shop…I adore the Bay downtown, but, truthfully, I’m not a huge fan of malls. I really enjoy walking along Street and Granville, and also browsing the boutiques and shops around Yaletown and Gastown. For a change of scenery, I love the outdoor shopping at the Seattle Premium Outlets, and the quaintness of Grandview Corners in White Rock is perfect on a sunny day, away from the bustle of the city.
Summer essentials…A comfortable dress in an eye catching colour, a floppy wide-brim hat, cat-eye sunnies, jewelled sandals, and a good tinted moisturizer with SPF (my favourites are Laura Mercier or Clinique).
Last Purchase…Brown cowboy boots with embroidery from Zara. I’ve been longing for them since mid-March, and they finally went on sale last weekend, thankfully still in my size!
Next purchase…Cuffed linen shorts in a neutral shade, a silk Wilfrid tank, and something (anything!!) by Marc Jacobs.
Fave piece in your closet…My beautiful black BCBG Maxazria cigarette pants with oversized pockets. My mom purchased them for me as a birthday gift last year, and they never fail to make me feel amazing.
Signature look…Flowy tops, high-waisted shorts, pearls, and absolutely anything with embellishment.
Beauty must-haves…Benefit Talk to the Tan face bronzer which gives a great natural glow, MAC plush glass for full lips, Eminence Organics almond oil, which is the most hydrating body moisturizer I’ve come across, and Biotherm soothing facial mist.
Fave nail polish colour…I tend to go for nude shades on my nails, especially peaches and pinks – my favourite is OPI ‘My Daddy’s The King.’
Three items in your bag…My iPhone, Burt’s Bees lip balm, and Bath & Body Works vanilla bean hand sanitizer.
Fave cupcake flavour…My newest favourite is banana cake topped with cream cheese icing and mini white chocolate chips! It’s like a little taste of heaven.
Weekend getaway…Definitely Osoyoos in the South Okanagan. With it’s flawless weather, and licence to go makeup-free while donning a bathing suit all day, every day? It doesn’t get much better than that.
