Spring Awakening

Today I came to the realization that though seasons change, people do not. They always revert back to their tried and trusted looks. Time to break the mold! Along with my spring cleaning I will force myself to try new things; things that don’t involve cardigans, flats, and moccasins. Item number one? A pair of Ray-ban sunglasses (like the ones I got for my prescription glasses). Number two? Brogues. Number 3? Lace. With nothing underneath. Rebel. Four? Some proper pants. As in not jeans or leggings. Good old fashioned pants. Five? A floral print blouse (it doesn’t sound innovative, but trust me, it is for me…). Six? A bright colour. I am so tired of wearing blacks, beiges, grays, and creams! If you can think of any other classy but interesting look, let me know. I am up for anything unless it involves less than 50% clothing, or head to toe leather. Ahem, classy. Just maybe “classy rebel”.

Brogues, Ports 1961 $395.00 US

Lace tee, American Apparel $45.00 CAN

Blouse, Patterson J. Kincaid $98.00 US

Colourful skirt, Twenty8Twelve $225.00 US

The Selena Dress

So I wore the selena dress to an event dubbed “semi-formal”.  I loved it, and am currently trying to decide where I can wear it next. A wedding perhaps? Any ideas on how I could make it work for a daytime California wedding would be appreciated.

Lists, Lists, Lists

I purchased a very pretty notebook the other day without an intended purpose. When I got home, I decided to be adventurous and attack my spring cleaning. I had a garbage pile, a keep pile, and a list pile. Yes, that’s right, I had a stack of lists. So I decided to create a book of lists. Its strangely satisfying to cross things off once they are accomplished/ bought. I think it will be quite interesting to look back on the lists years from now. Sort of like a twisted, vague diary.

If you are not in fashion you are nobody,

I will finally be going shopping this weekend to get my fall fashion fix. Items on my list?  pencil jeans, ankle boots (I know everyone is excited about over-the-knee, but they just aren’t for me), a couple essentials, christmas gifts, and of course, makeup refills. Now some things I don’t necessarily need, but they make me want to empty the bank account. Scrumptiously soft leather gloves, a checkbook style wallet in red, purple, teal, or gray, a fitted black blazer, a bustier tank top, a romantic organza skirt, cocktail rings and necklaces in ridiculously oversized proportions, and ludicrously large knits. Wish me luck! P.S, I’m not actually considering buying the Christian Louboutins…. yet! I have a coin jar and I’m saving up baby!

Lastly, I got my american apparel bag of scraps, and hopefully I’ll have some crafts to show off very soon. I was thinking a downtown quilt?

Back to School Buys

Summer is already half done, and although I want to saver every last second of heat (more like rain), I am also kind of obsessed with fall accesories and fashion(: So here are my top picks for fall fashion

Bags

Large and roomy is the way to go! I’ve never quite understood why people buy those stupid small bags that hold a phone and a quarter. Unless it’s a black tie affair or you legitimantly only have to carry a couple coins, you’re going to look like a moronic, tween-ish, wannabee. Maybe the draw is because they’re cheaper? Anyways, bright shades, a spacious interior, and a classic line are whats right now in bags. I’m personally favouring a large tote for my books this year. As par usual, look to Longchamp, marc jacobs, Chloe, and as much as these designers make me gritt my teeth: Juicy Couture and Betsey Johnson.

Juicy Couture “yearbook” tote. It comes with permanent markers so people can sign it! $66.00

Shoes

I want moccasins! They look so comfy, and warm; yet they are not nearly as ghastly as uggs!

I recently acquired a good deal of agate and other cool rocks and shells to make necklaces with. Look at this cool  agate jewelery! I can’t wait to get started. I want my pieces to look as if they’ve been hand crafted in nature, not some stuffy art store. For that reason I want the chain and bindings to be all leather. They should have an earthy feel. Great for pairing with jeans and a tee.
