Someone Great

LCD Soundsystem - Someone Great

My grandmother is sick and I'm obsessed with this song. I don't know if those two are related, but I've been thinking about both things a lot.

Flowers & Buttlerflies

Having dinner with friends tonight. Going to wear what's become my favourite outfit lately. It's just so summery and cute, plus comfy. The weather is so nice lately, how could I resist wearing my fav summer dress. On my way, going to check out the new Zara/Aritzia open in Burlington. I've been really good this last pay check, I should treat myself. ......does that make sense?

Spandex Shorts

Thrifted romper worn as shorts, H&M striped tee, Vintage belt, Urban Outfitters blazer

I am aware these cotton/spandex shorts have a slight camel-toe thing happening in these photos. Kind of also have a hunchback vibe.... It was chilly & late and I am lazy. In real life this outfit is much more flattering.


- Taking sewing lessons, but haven't made anything interesting yet except altering a pair of highwaisted/slightly momish-jeans shorts. Pics to come for judging.

- Started listening to R&B for some insane reason. Still obsessed with Washed Out though.

- Car is dieing. *sigh* It is a '93 though, sooooo......

- Easter was full of food.

- Getting crazy behind on my laundry. Might be because I always just buy new things before I need to wash old things. Hm....

- I think my dog is depressed. Here is a pic of her puppy eyes, macro style.

Big puppy nose!


Sneaking a peak into the neighbours....

Thrifted denim jacket, DLR babydoll dress, Aldo OTK boots, H&M tights

Saving money is so hard this time of year, (or anytime of year really lol.) But lately there are so many things on my wish list. A ton of them I can probably thrift, but you really have to have the time and patience. Which for the most part I can't be bothered unless I'm in the mood, or low on the cash flow. Besides, I usually leave thrift stores with a bunch of stuff that wasn't on my list. Oh well, add it all to my hoard of clothing.

H&M Shirt, DIY Jean skirt, OTK boots, Thrifted Beanie, Assorted rings & bracelets

Bleh. Life is hectic lately, with work and birthdays. Ended up wearing something completely different on VDay. I've bought a few more items since my last post. I'm away from my cam for the week, but I will post some pics of them soon. This one is a couple weeks old. The shirt was such a great H&M find. You can do a lot with it. And I love that it's super long in the back. Anyways, night for now!

Date Night

DLR babydoll dress, Wilfred pencil skirt, OTK socks, vintage red velvet purse, B initial necklace, oversized Victorian ring

I guess I'm a planner. Pretty sure this is going to be my VDay outfit. What do you think? You can't really see but there's some clev in there as well. And I'll probably pair it with some black heels and a red lip.

Kind of early still to be planning, I know, but I tend to figure out my outfits ahead of time when I'm excited about something. I always know my birthday outfit like two weeks in advance, haha! No actual plans yet though. We usually figure that stuff out last minute, which doesn't really work in our favour during these silly holidays. We will prob end up eating dinner in the city at our fav restaurant. I've got some good ideas for the bf's gift though. What do you have planned???


Two Looks, One Gangsta Chain

DLR oversized tee, vintage military vest, gangsta chain, my favourite OTK boots

faux ray bans, vintage blazer, gangsta chain, zippered OTK boots


Let's Not Let Our Hearts Get In The Way

sequin shoulder detail dress, pleather wrap belt, Aldo oxford wedge

Wow. Three posts in and I get lazy with updates. Couldn't really figure out the programs for the new cam I've been using though. Better pics though, eh? Love this new dress I bought. Embroidered sequin shoulder details. Loves it! I also love this belt, too. It's super long so you have to wrap it around you three or four times before it fits, but gives a cool effect.

Went thrifting quite a bunch the past week and picked up some good finds. Nothing from the list, of course. I got a quilted red velvet purse, a military inspired vest, not one but two ponchos (for some reason..) and a very warm winter hat. The hat is actually pretty practical since the buttons on my winter coat decided to abandon ship last week. So I've been wearing my leather coat. the middle of a Canadian winter. ....awesome.

The bf and I went to the Beta Shoe museum on the weekend. It was actually pretty interesting. Shoes from every period in history. The Chopine shoes were the most fascinating. They are these incredibly tall (sometimes 16 inches!) platform shoes women wore in 16/17th century. Amazing what we do to be elegant and beautiful.

Honey Dijon

h&m scarf, vintage blazer, DLR oversized tee, vintage pencil skirt, tights, grey trouser sock, Aldo oxford wedge

This is one of my favourite scarves. Yellow can be such a hard shade to wear with my skin tone, yet is one of my favourite colours. This scarf is the perfect shade of mustard. I bought it three years ago and I haven't found a better one since.

The bf is in Montreal for the weekend, so made a homemade pizza and had a movie night. Did my nails with my new OPI nail colour that came in the mail Friday. Bright gold! Surprisingly a hard to find colour. But I can cross that off my list now (so I can make room for other things!) I've been craving a thrift hunt, so I might go tomorrow. Here is my list:

Thrift List

Oversized denim buttondown
Oversized floral buttondown
Longer-than-it-needs-to-be scarf
Yellow blazer
Floral sundress

Let's see if I can find at least one of those.

I'm actually sorry to be saying goodbye to winter. I must be truly Canadian because I feel most at home in sweaters and boots. Sandals feel so wrong to me. I bought some new cowboy boots to get me through the summer months (and a leather fringe vest to match, just for fun!). Pictures to come.


A not-so-new obsession.
