The best part of being a fashion blogger is discovering designers that are Unique and talented. Last year I had the pleasure to meet one of the local designers in Vancouver – Joanne Ricci Fashion Designer. Not only she is talented but also a sweetheart. Note this blog it’s not sponsored. I am posting this blog because I wanted to showcase one of her jackets that I LOVE. I spotted this jacket in her IG feed in black, and it was love at first sight. Immediately I reached out to her and asked if she had the same one in nude. The bell sleeve detail is just stunning and looks even better in person.
I posted a video on my IG feed, the first video I have ever made, and I felt like a movie star.

Note she is a startup designer who shares a passion for fashion and is producing her garment in Vancouver on the order base. I asked her if she could make me the same jacket but in NUDE and she delivered what I asked. The nude colour feels lux and so glam, not to mention that it is one of my favourite shades.
The min I received the jacket I had many looks in my head that I wanted to try. I decided to go for a monochrome look since the day I wore the outfit it was beautiful sunny weather. I paired the jacket with my favourite trousers from SUISTUDIO, Gucci heels, and my favourite coat from W Concept website. To add more glam, I added pearl earrings and a nude mini bag from Cafune’
Same jacket different look. The designer aims to make timeless pieces that you can wear in different ways. Another reason why I love this jacket a lot. When that garment goes into your closet, you want to wear it for years to come in many different ways.
I love having a unique style, because, without fashion and diversity, we’d all look the same. As much as I love the timeless, elegant style, I appreciate anything that’s out of the norm. I’d rather be fashionable than boring or wannabe or copycat period. I put my classic twist to any trends I like, just as I did for the second look. I love fashion and when I dress up is my playground.
