Here’s a serious question for you: If you could be any princess, who would you be? Kate Middleton? Elsa from Frozen? I’d choose Charlotte of Monaco. The woman is pure glamour (she’s Grace Kelly’s granddaughter after all), and seems to live a life of galas, yachts and horseback riding.
Why do I ask? (Aside from, you know…general curiosity?) Because Variety BC’s newest gala One Night in Monte Carlo is coming up on April 8th, which means a princess’s gown collection would come in handy. The gala will feature live entertainment, a red carpet, bespoke cocktails and fine dining at the Pinnacle Hotel in Vancouver. But the best part? It benefits Variety’s mobility program, which provides Sunshine Coaches for community organizations and offers safe, wheelchair-enabled transportation for families with children needing support.
I’ll be there! Will you? Get your tickets here.
Now, if you have a princess’ gown budget, you’re already set wardrobe-wise, I’m sure. But if you need a little inspiration for what to wear on a less-than-royal budget, I stopped by Global BC to share some ideas from Hudson’s Bay, Aldo, Town Shoes, Le Chateau, H&M, all provided by Coquitlam Centre. Take a look.
Thanks for having me, Variety and Global BC! And thanks as always for your help, Jerome Insorio!
Here’s the thing about Vancouver: it’s basically fall all year ’round (except for the two months in the summer when it’s pure heaven but we’ll get to those another time). Which means autumn rules the wardrobe.
For my fall trend segment on Global BC I brought the timeless beauty: faux fur, leather, deep merlot. Watch it here. If anything it will make you feel emboldened to wear your fall gear well into spring.
Because hey, why not?
Thanks, Metropolis at Metrotown and Global Television, for having me! Thanks, Jerome Insorio and Hayley Hudson, for all your help!

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver).
Strike a pose. One of my recent trend segments + an outfit I’d pose all day in.
Cafe quality. A beautiful spot to meet a colleague-turned-friend-turned-client for lunch + some cafe vibes you could incorporate into your own home.
Reflections. A gorgeous day for Amy’s Ride and Walk, which honours a friend, benefits the Amy Hurn Scholarship and raises awareness for organ donor registration + beautiful shadows.
Sky light. A fox looks down at us from the rotunda at the Vancouver Art Gallery + a skylight that makes me want to replace my roof with stained glass.
Epic collection. A wall of pink art at the Emily Carr University Student Art Sale + a legend who has no shortage of pink art.
P.S. There are more photos where these came from so follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.
Baby, it’s cold outside. How many posts this time of year start like that? A million! Give or take. But seriously, even in Vancouver (where it’s usually mild and rainy) it’s c-o-l-d out there.
So you want to bundle up in a million layers but still want to look like a million bucks? Well then, my Global TV trend segment will help you feel warm while looking cool. It features looks from Old Navy, Roots, and H&M, all pulled from Metropolis at Metrotown: take a look!
Thanks for having me, Global BC and Metropolis at Metrotown! And thanks for your help, Jerome Insorio and Hayley Hudson!

This fall feels prettier than most. At least in terms of the clothes. The fabrics are luxe, the colour palettes are rich, the details are extra detail-y.
It all makes for a lovely season, sartorially speaking.
In my latest Global Television segment, I share three of the biggest trends you’ll find in stores, featuring looks from Club Monaco, Roots, H&M, Hudson’s Bay, and BCBGMAXAZRIA, all at Metropolis at Metrotown.
Take a look…
Thanks Global Television and Metropolis at Metrotown for having me. Thanks for your help, Jerome Insorio and Hayley Hudson!

I have a confession to make: I am by no means a sleek packer. I take the biggest suitcase I’m allowed and I stuff it with everything I could possibly need. So as my doctor once told me: do as I say, not as I do.
For my latest style segment on Global Television I talked trends that travel, featuring looks from Joe Fresh (at Superstore), Plenty, and Winners.
Take a look! Thanks for having me, Global Television and Metropolis at Metrotown! Thanks for your help, Jerome Insorio and Hayley Hudson!

My segment at Global BC started out smoothly enough this morning.
I brought three of my favourite sand-friendly looks from Old Navy, H&M and Swimco, pulled from their Metropolis at Metrotown locations.
Then it quickly turned into one long blooper reel. (I don’t think I have ever laughed as hard as I did the second we stopped airing!) Take a look…
Thank you, Global BC and Metropolis at Metrotown, for having me! Thank you, Jerome Insorio and Hayley Hudson, for your help!

What were you doing bright and early Saturday morning? Sleeping in? Well, you know what they say, you snooze, you lose…the chance to watch my trends segment live.
But no matter! My latest, featuring three of the biggest trends for summer (key colours, key silhouettes, and key-carrying handbags), is available right here.
Featuring looks from Club Monaco, Aritzia, BCBGMAXAZRIA, and Marciano, it made for a very summery start to the weekend. Take a look…
Thank you, Global Television and Metropolis at Metrotown, for having me! Thanks, Jerome Insorio and Hayley Hudson, for your help!

Getting dressed on hot summer days is all fun and games until it comes to the work week. It’s hot during your commute and scorching on the patio after hours, but it’s freezing cold when you’re sitting under the AC vent in your office.
This morning I brought three looks from Michael Kors, Banana Republic and LOFT to help you get through both extremes. (I’m wearing Zara and Aldo, with a linen skirt I bought in Ireland.)
Watch the clip!

The only question more daunting than what to wear in a wedding? What to wear to a wedding! Too formal and you’ll be uncomfortable, too casual and you’ll look like you didn’t put in the effort. Drama rama!
So for my latest instalment of Wear It Well on Global Television, I compiled three ensembles to wear to three different types of weddings, featuring looks from Aritzia, Aldo, Joe Fresh, Call It Spring and Le Chateau at Metropolis at Metrotown.
Watch the clip here. Thanks for having me, Global BC! Thanks, Hayley Hudson, for the photos! Thanks, Jerome Insorio, for your help!
