Hello There!


Blouse: Propaganda from Plenty (get the look); Sweater: Free People (also cozy); Jeans: AG Stilts find them locally at The Urban Rack; Necklace: ToodleBunny

At a recent event I had a great conversation that validated how I’ve been feeling lately.  Why can’t we just say hello?  Event after event I see similar faces (Vancouver is not that big), and time after time there are missed opportunities for a simple hello.   I don’t know why this is ???  Why do we lurk in a corner, telling the people we already know, who we think someone is across the room?  You know you’ve done it…heck I’ve done it.  We put up invisible walls and give ourselves tons of great excuses to not make the effort to introduce ourselves.

I consider myself a pretty outgoing person.  Humour is my thing and it makes my day when I can make someone laugh.   For some reason I find I get stuck.  Stuck in the comfort of knowing who I know.  This funny little conversation happened between myself, Alicia of Alicia Fashionista, and  Joy Pecknold, the Western Editor for Fashion Magazine.   Joy came over to me, said hello, and we had a great conversation…no one got hurt.   It was my first time meeting Joy ( I had only previously lurked. ) I adored her fun and playful humour and was really glad she came to say hello.
