  • The Deighton Cup | Lucky Number 7 | July 25th, 2015

    Despite a rainy day prior, we enjoyed the perfect amount of heat to keep all of our fascinators & fedoras in place for the lucky number seven edition (7th annual year) of The Deighton Cup presented by The Social Concierge, MMG Group, Camber Communications & more.

    A day at the Races! The Deighton Cup – Lucky Number 7 was a ton of fun

    Kuna Lu www.kunaphotography.com & I skipped the insanely long line and headed straight for the Media check-in to get our wristbands, admiring many adorned headpieces, gorgeous floral sundresses, and dapper gents on our way down.

    The band preparing for their next rousing number.

    The sweet smell of cigar smoke filled the air and the jazz band played as we were transported into another time & place with the glamour. Could this really be Vancouver, or were my eyes playing tricks on me? There was not a yoga pant in sight! 😛

    I entered the Style Stakes-Best Dressed Awards, presented by Market One Media Group Inc. hosted by SHAW TV’s Fiona Forbes, where the best-dressed “Belle Du Jour & Gallant Sartorialist” win $500 each at The Deighton Cup. The prize was well deserved and won by couple Lucy Orellana-Lopez & her man Michael Boulewho both embodied the alternative/pin-up/indie version of this award. Michael helped Lucy with the construction on her beautiful hat, both are such a creative couple!
