Girl of the Week COURTNEY ARCHER is just one of the fashionable and gorgeous gals we spotted at the Aritzia Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Show. We knew we had to photograph Courtney when we started discussing her outfit and whether we could wear something like that to work (the consensus was no, but maybe with leggings – but nonetheless, the outfit looked amazing). It was no surprise when we found out that Courtney has most recently been working as a stylist for music videos. Meet Courtney.
Wearing…A silk Wilfred button up dress with a skinny Wilfred belt. The feather earrings are just from a little stand on the street. The shoes are patent leather pumps I’ve had in my closet for a while. And the chunky beaded ring is from Barefoot Contessa on Main Street.
Most memorable fashion purchase…Tough call, but I guess I would have to say my Mackage black leather jacket. Or my Marc Jacobs hobo bag – I had been dreaming about it for a while and finally took the plunge!
Wish list…Fidelity military style pants, LnA deep crew neck zipper shirt (where do you find them in Vancouver?) and hot pink Hunter Boots (fall is approaching).
Wardrobe staples…My style is all over the place, it depends on my mood. I wear a lot of flirty, feminine pieces. I’m big into dresses, rompers and flowy tops. But on the other side, when the weather isn’t so hot, I wear my Mackage leather jacket all the time. I couldn’t live without my jeggings, leather leggings and my Steve Madden riding boots. And boots, boots, boots for sure in fall/winter.
Every girl should have…Jeggings, a leather jacket or a good mini-skirt.
Fave places to shop…Aritzia, Holt Renfrew, Urban Outfitters, Hills in Kerrisdale. Best cities to shop in – New York, London and Melbourne. And fave online stores – singer22, ASOS and Shopbop.
Beauty must-haves…Mascara, hot pink blush and lipgloss.
Never leave the house without…my Blackberry and lipgloss.
Drink of choice…Wine, caesars and tea!
