Product Review: Dermalogica Precleanse Wipes

Dermalogica Precleanse Wipes

I'm a huge fan of makeup remover wipes, so when I heard about Dermalogica precleanse wipes ($27 for 20) in the spring I was definitely intrigued. Think the same bestselling formula (which contains aloe and apricot oils, rice bran, and vitamin E) but in convenient wipe form. What's not to love?

Oliver + Lilly's Fall 2014 Media Preview

Vancouver boutique Oliver + Lilly's fall 2014 preview media dinner table setting

At Vancouver boutique Oliver + Lilly's, the name of the sartorial game is evolution, not revolution. Oliver + Lilly's hasn't strayed very far from its classics-with-a-twist roots since owner Leighann Boquist opened shop in 2008, all while subtly forging new directions each season. On Monday evening, I was reacquainted with their offerings in the best possible way: an intimate multi-course dinner by The Farmer's Apprentice served at the shop, followed by delectable French pastries from neighbouring Beaucoup Bakery.

Latest Outfit: Buffalo Plaid & Bootlegger Giveaway

Summer to fall transitional style: buffalo plaid, heather grey tank, red lips
Bootlegger 'Everett' wrap (c/o) | Stillwater x Style by Kim XO tank (c/o) | Banana Republic shorts | Madewell boots (similar) | Ray-Ban cat-eye shades (similar) | WENDYB squirrel necklace |
Lips: Chanel Precision Lip Liner 'Rouge' & AERIN Rose Lip Conditioner |
Nails: Dior Vernis Gel 'Carré Bleu' & Anna Sui Gel Top Coat

I already have two red plaid shirts in my closet, but that didn't stop me from coveting this wrap from Bootlegger the instant I saw it in their fall/winter lookbook. The draped front lends a feminine vibe to an otherwise tomboyish style, and the soft cotton is just as cozy as any borrowed-from-the-boys flannel. I'm pairing it with summer staples and ankle boots as we ride out the last of the warmer temperatures; so perfect for crisp evenings and long hours spent working at home.

More photos (and a chance to win a $100 Bootlegger GC) after the jump!
