Torte and Chocolate Eclair




These are pictures from my date last week. Phil found this adorable bakery, and we headed out to pick from their delicious selections. The Eclair was deadly!

Happy Tuesday.

Some Sequins in the Afternoon



Skirt: Mikkat Market | Bag: Eddie Baur (consignment) | bracelet: gifts | Shirt, jacket, shoes, belt, rings, scarf, brooch : thrifted

I bought this skirt online from Mikkat Market ( LOVE this store! ) but had to get a different size... so now I finally have it! I have been dying for a sequin skirt, and with this one the price was right. I wanted to wear it in the day time, with more casual pieces. Phil helped me pick this outfit out! I just picked the skirt. He's got the flair for fashion! We were out on a date when he took these...

I know this is old news, but I LOVE everything about Zara SS2011. Luckily, there is no Zara in Halifax.

Shoes on the ground

photo (1)

Blazer: Mexx (thrifted) | tshift: American Apparel | jeans: American Eagle | shoes: Bruno Magli (thrifted)
tights: Gap | purse: Eddie Baur | lipstick: Benefit "flirt alert"

Here's a quick update on the go - I feel the end of the semester coming, and the wave of work with it!

The good part about the end of the school year approaching is the change in weather! It's still cold (couldn't go bare feet in these shoes!) but boots are no longer a must. Super, super exciting.

My mom and sister visited me over the weekend, and we had a totally love time! I will post a couple of pics once I've got them off my camera.

On Bill Cunningham

Bill Cunningham New York Trailer from Gavin McWait on Vimeo.

Totally inspirational man. The original street style photographer. His words are beautiful. I want to watch this every morning.

"Fashion is the armour to survive everyday life. I don't think you could do away with it."

Spring Hair

I love this cute hair DIY - I will definitely be trying it out for summer!

On a related note, I want to get some dry shampoo to help me out with some cute summer hair. Does anyone have recommendations for good brands? I'm hoping for something not too expensive, that you can purchase in Canada.

What is actual is only for one time



scarf (as turband): vintage | shirt: vintage Levi 's | sweater: Silence+Noise
jeans: Cheap Mondays | shoes: the Aldo ones I wanted forever and got for Christmas!

So, I look a little tired in these photos. I didn't realize until right now, putting them together. I haven't exactly been giving myself much time to sleep... and it's been getting harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning.

So I love this outfit. It feels very me - I didn't feel I was "putting it on", or trying something not me. At the same time, it felt new for me. It popped into my head as I was falling asleep the other night and quickly jumped up to put everything on the same hangar. I was in such a rush today I just grabbed it and went! I also ended up wearing this shoes for only the second time ever (the first was NYE!). I will be wearing them more.

Tonight I'm catching up with a friend, then heading out for Old School Hip Hop Night at Tribeca with Uncle Fester! And then maybe I'll let my bones sleep in...

Chunky and Stacked

Note: amazing, chunky jewelry needed. The more the better. Stack it on!

The last shot is a chunky bracelet a friend gave me for my birthday last year, and a sneak peek of an outfit I'll put up tomorrow. Sorry it's been slow lately!

Big Red Scarf


I am loving big scarves this week. Slash this forever. I wore two scarves as one yesterday - it was so huge! Loved it. I didn't get to snap a pic... next time.
