Dress Up

I love these photos fashion blogger Hanneli took while hanging out with Anna Della Russo and Tommy Ton at Anna's house (because famous people actually do hang out all together the way I imagine in my head. Really.) and she played dress up in her closet! I'm pretty sure I will be playing dress up with my kids some day - definitely never too old.

Speaking of dressing up, Halloween is this weekend. For me, dressing-up night is tonight. I have a plan for an outfit that fits all my requirements: cute, involves little to no expense, and doesn't make me look silly/slutty (I'm looking at you, American Apparel). I'll try to remember to get some pictures!

Also this weekend: Everyone's favourite Halloween tradition... The Rocky Horror Picture Show. If you haven't seen it, now is the time. If you have, you know what I mean.

PS: Have you watched Rocky Horror Glee yet?

Skirt: vintage | Jacket: Joe Fresh | Sweater: H&M | Camisole: Ralph Lauren
Ring: NastyGal | Lipstick: Benefit | Boots: Canadian Tire!

Finally, after much ado, here are the photos I took over Thanksgiving weekend! I'm pretty jazzed about them. I hope you like them too.

I bought this jacket on sale the day before we took the photos, and I'm so glad I did - I've worn it basically nonstop since. And the skirt is courtesy of my childhood dress-up box, but looks very Louis Vuitton this season, to me.

I think my boyfriend is getting good at this picture-taking thing...

PS: Soon I will put up a picture of my new look!

Colour Story

Never Let Me Go came to a theatre near me this week. I knew I wanted to see it because of the cast (Andrew Garfield! Carey Mulligan!) but I hadn't actually seen the trailer. Now that I have, I am even more excited. For some reason, I am very attracted to aesthetics in movies, so much so that sometimes I will watch the movie again even if I didn't like it. I love the muted tons and... well, the Britishness of it all. My mom was just in England on a trip - I'm very jealous!

I was also inspired by this movie in another way - a change you'll see soon!

PS: I know I promised photos, but something has gone wrong with my uploader and hosting. I need to look around to find a new one. Any advice? I use Picasa right now, but I'm not happy. (It's why my banner is messed up and photo size and quality isn't as good, even at the same settings as before). I really do want to share my awesome photos with you, so be patient? (I'm having a hard time with that one...)

[ my favourite perfume]

[ my jewelry box in the morning sun ]

[ vintage belt, tied a la Lucy Laught ]

A return after a long absence - I'm sorry! I have been busy, and away for Thanksgiving (which was this past weekend, in Canada). I went away to the countryside to visit my boyfriend's family. I even managed to take some photos while I was there, do a little fashion shoot! I think he's getting good at this.

Those will be up tomorrow... I'm so excited to share them!
