Over 40 and being fabulous


, , , , , , , , ,


This is Sylvia again. You saw her the first time here, but I had to show you this fantastic jumpsuit she bought on South Granville during her visit to Vancouver.  And don’t overlook those cool shoes and necklace! Sylvia is a full-time style blogger/advisor specializing in women over 40 on her blog 40+ Style. She will be hosting a blogger meetup in New York, September 4 to 6. Check here for details.


This is Barbara, one of Vancouver’s own. She’s definitely got the blues – in the best possible way! I just want to swim in all that colour, texture, and pattern. It’s hard to see here, but one of her necklaces is all buttons. Gorgeous. She was a participant at the Women’s Blogger Summit held recently in Vancouver. I know I’ll see more of her about town.


A great casual look with this analogous colour combo and an excellent example of umbrella as accessory! How great that Tiina was able to make it to the Women’s Blogger Summit recently from her bases in the UK and Scandinavia. On her blog Elegance Revisited she shares her musings on style, her art, and tips and stories from life as a world traveler.

Designing Women


, , , , , ,


Have you ever had a Barbie doll? This woman, Anne, may have designed her outfit. But now she designs prints for underwear and teaches digital design at Otis College of Art & Design in L.A. Anne also exhibits her artwork around the world and sells her designs on a range of products and fabrics, such as these leggings. I love her crazy-ass patterns and colour. To learn more about Anne and her myriad of talents be sure to check out her blog SpyGirl.


Ooh-la-la. It’s Sue, woman of the world. She made this fantastic frock and dozens and dozens more. Her sewing skills put me to shame. Sue brings light wherever she goes, through her clothes and through her personality. She has a wonderfully-written blog that reflects her love of whimsy, fun, and arty stuff. A Colourful Canvas: Stitch Style Smile. Have a look!

High-flying style

This diva is no stranger to Culture Serf. You may remember Sheila from posts I did on her HERE and HERE. Always stylish, always the life of the party. Under her hat is a magnificent meringue-y swirl of vivid purple hair. On her feet? Need you even ask?! Fluevogs, of course. Like a rock star she flew into Vancouver from Vancouver Island for a weekend of fun. Aaah, the life. Be sure to check out her style blog Ephemera.


Power Socializing, that’s what these two are dressed for. No need for sequins, spangles or doo-dads, they let their personalities do the dazzling. But I do like their matching raspberries. Ally, left, is a high-power lawyer from New York with a life/style blog called Shybiker. And Shawna, right, who also flew into town from the Island for the weekend (?!), is a writer and artist with a passion for style, which she shares on her blog, The Director of Awesome.
