Initially discovered this “lit” spot from my friend Vernice’s Instagram so I thought I would go check it out myself. It’s the building next to the neon sign on Pender that says “Jack Chow Insurance”. The light up background makes for a great backdrop and I’m glad I beared the cold to shoot here. I’ll include a map at the bottom of this post if you want to know how to get there.
Athleisure has become more and more prominent in Vancouver’s fashion scene in the last year but I think this year it really has stolen the spotlight. Vancouver has always been a city full of athletic-wear clad active, healthy individuals anyways. So I think that is a huge reason why we’ve adopted the comfort and versatility of athleisure so easily. For me personally, some how hoodies have made its way back into my closet. I love pairing a simple hoodie with a coat for a more “normcore” look, or with a bomber for a more relaxed “chill” look.
My favourite bomber lately has been this one from Zaful. It’s very affordable, which is always a plus, and actually surprised me with its quality. It’s been a staple this winter as Vancouver has been unnaturally cold. The inside of the jacket is actually quilted and padded so it retains body heat extremely well. There is also an extra pocket on the inside of the jacket which has been a life saver for my phone especially since the battery life has significantly decreased due to the cold. (Apple… DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS PLEASE).
Zaful also always has discount codes hiding around their site so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that. Here’s one that I found as I was leaving the site for 15% off. The code is “ZFCB01”. Enjoy!
Hope you guys are having a great week so far!
