Hi, I'm Cee from Coco and Vera! You might remember me from my last guestpost. I'm a Vancouver girl who dreams of Paris... and will be calling it home in a matter of weeks!
Vancouver has been my home for six years, and I will miss it. (But Paris - who could pass that up?) So I've spent the summer visiting all of my favourite places, among them the Sylvia Hotel. I remember, when I first arrived in Vancouver, driving up Beach Avenue and seeing the Sylvia looming on the horizon, a historic beauty by the beach. Many of the buildings in Vancouver are new, buty the Sylvia, built in 1912 and once a lone monument on the English Bay beachfront, has stood the test of time.
The ivy-covered stone facade of the Sylvia Hotel always makes me think of glamour... And what could possibly be more glamourous than a lace coat? I fell in love with this beauty from Dammee Inc. and couldn't resist pairing it with a burgundy blouse from Vivian Wong. Burgundy is without a doubt my favourite shade for fall, but this piece is also delicate enough for a sunny late summer day by the water.
