It's Finally Silk Romper Season in Vancouver!

Out just in time for the sun! Frolic, dance, bike, or just stand around and look good in my favourite summer piece. Freshly delivered to The Block and Eugene Choo!




More Photos from S/S 2012 Shoot!

Like a kid in a candy store! Lotsa Nars, Bobbi Brown, and Shu Uemura.
I was so excited to borrow some pieces from the new collection from Love Medals. Talia makes such unique and adorable pieces; I just couldn't decide! www.lovemedals.com

Mika and Maiko.

Another Twinsies shot! I couldn't resist. I just got the new CS 5.5 and it's amazing. 


Maiko is wearing the Peplum Dress in Pomelo, and the Affinity and Unity Necklaces from Love Medals!



Oooohhhhh, editorial-esque!

Chatting with Jen.
Treat time!

Fashion Illustration at Emily Carr!!

I'm really excited to be teaching at Emily Carr this semester! It's in the Continuing Studies Department, which means that it's non-credit, and open to the public! We're going to be exploring many fun mediums, refining drawing technique and finding our personal illustration style. Registration is open!

A BLOG WITHIN A BLOG

    So apparently Vancouver got voted the worst dressed city in N. America. Well, I can't really argue with that, Vancouver being home of the yoga pant and outdoor gear (which by the way, I have nothing against. yoga pants are fine- in yoga class, but to the office or a nice restaurant? Come on, people!).

   There are, however, some exceptionally dressed Vancouverites among us. Not only that there are some nifty Vancouverites that create the goods that have become part of these well dressed folks.  No other blog documents this better than www.acommonthread.me. You'll see the full range of style here; from high-end labels, to thrift store finds, to DIY creations. There is even a little segment of yours truly working hard in my studio.

Check it out, as you may pull some inspiration and see a friend or two!

Two heads are better than one!




 Hi folks, the Holiday 2011 collection is finally up and in stores soon! Please check out my website www.jeanokada.ca for photos of the full collection, and here are some additional shots that I just love. This shoot was extra fun with two gorgeous and equally hilarious ladies. Thank you Maiko and Bon Voyage Jen!


Pretty Ladies!

I know I haven't posted in a while; I am not a diligent blogger, but I'm trying to change that.... sort of. Here are photos of some beautiful women wearing pieces from various collections. I also added a pic of my sweet sister on her wedding day. I made her dress from that vintage looking silk crepe that I am currently obsessed with. It's so sweet when people send me these pics. I love my many lovely muses!
