One more chance

So a few weeks ago I had a garage sale in attempts to clean out my room. I sold some stuff, donated A LOT of stuff, but then still had some stuff left over that I couldn't bear to donate. These are the things I still love but just don't get a lot of wear from, so I thought if I can't wear them then the next best thing would be to offer them to my blog readers!

Everything I'm selling is in new or nearly new condition, and has only been worn a few times or never worn at all. This isn't my thrifted stuff either, it's all name brands including Cheap Monday, Irregular Choice, Boy London, and even Luella! To make things simple, I've included the shipping charge in the price listed, so all you have to do is email me with the item you want, and I'll send you a Paypal invoice for the listed price and nothing more! I've made a page with the despcription for everything, so go ahead and click below to shop my closet!


Just so I feel like there's some "real material" in this post, here are some pictures of the kind of outfit I wear on those crazy hot summer days. Usually my outfits are barely modified for the weather, but here in the praries it can get pretty damn hot sometimes and, well, something's gotta give... in this case it's my creativity. The only ounce of originality here are my "leopard print bike shorts", which were actually my favourite pair of tights that had a tiny hole which soon turned into a giant gash! My solution (couldn't throw them away, obviously) was to cut them and turn them into sheer shorts. Which actually have really come in handy to wear under my other shorts... my cutoffs tend to be veeeery short, oops!



UPDATE: Things are selling fast! The shoes, sunglasses, and sweatshirt are sold, but there's still a Cheap Monday dress, an American Apparel dress, a Topshop skirt, and a Luella top all up for grabs still! Check them out before someone else snatches them!

You always had the blondest hair

UGH I'm kind of realizing how crappy my blog is right now. I'm not seeking sympathy, seriously I feel like I've not been getting any good material for you guys lately! I guess it mostly has to do with my real-life style slump that I'm going through, with I'm praying will pass in due time. So yeah, just saying I'm fully aware of my current suckiness!

I've got a few iPhone outfit pictures from the last few weeks, it's just way easier to take a few quick mirror snaps than to set up my tripod and make sure my room is clean enough to take pictures in (the real challenge). I think I'd like to start taking daily outfit pictures, even the ones that are less than exciting, just because I think it's way interesting to get a sense of what a person wears from day-to-day rather than just what they get dressed up in to post about... if you get what I mean.

Here's another outfit with my new favourite jeans I've already posted about: the crazy long flares! I still love them so much, and I just really liked how they looked with this t-shirt that I cut the sleeves off of. Speaking of this t-shirt, I bought it at an Alexisonfire concert in high school and wore it the other day as a mini-tribute to the band which officially disbanded recently. It's really sad but I guess all good things come to an end, and I've still got some good mosh pit memories from all their amazing shows (seen them about 4 times, I think?).


Jeans from Topshop, concert tee, thrifted bag, and Aldo chunky sandals

And can we talk about this bag?? I thrifted it a few weeks ago for like 4 dollars and I love it. Weirdly I find it goes with just about everything, and it's the perfect size to fit everything in yet not to big for it to get all jumbled up with stuff. Such a good find.


This outfit is what I wore to go to the 18th birthday party of some girl I don't know. My friend and I were out of town visiting her brother who had this party to go to, and rather than just sit around at his place we tagged along. Scouring my closet for a dress for this thing was not as easy as I thought, I HAVE NO "NICE CLOTHES"!! Good excuse to go party dress shopping, I think...


Thrifted grey lace dress, blazer from idk, random jewelry and clutch.

Now I wore this outfit today, but warning I'm not wearing makeup in these pictures! Scary. Dress I thrifted the other day, pretty cute in a high school kid from 1992 kind of way. But what I love about this outfit are my Vivienne Westwood x Melissa rocking horse shoes! I bought them months ago but I don't think I've blogged about them yet. They're the ones with the wings attached to the ankles, but I took them off because I wore them with jeans the day before and I don't think the wings look good with pants. Anyways, love these shoes and even though they're a strictly summer kind of shoe I'll probably try to get away with wearing them in the fall with socks. Rubber and woolly socks. I love it.


And before I forget, my current nails are a set of falsies in robin's egg blue (in my signature oval shape).


That's all for now, but I PROMISE this blog-slowness won't last forever. Bear with me, it's summer after all!

Too much, too little, too late

EVERYTHING THRIFTED, except for the socks they're Monki from Sweden.
Is there any chance I'm actually getting whiter in the summer? Sheesh. I'm blogging this outfit not only because I loooove this skirt I thrifted last week (for like 2 dollah, hollah hollah!), but because I've worn this exact outfit 3 times in the past week. Hygenic? No. Saves me time and effort putting another look together? Yes. You see where I'm going with this, I'm just getting lazier by the minute.
So lazy I'm going to finish the post here. BYE

If I was your girlfriend

I've been in a bit of a style rut lately, wearing jean shorts and t-shirts every day pretty much because nothing else appeals to me right now. Not that I think my style is dependant on trends, but there's not really any particular style or looks that I'm really crazy about right now (in my own wardrobe or otherwise). On a positive note, I've wanted to find the perfect 90's floral mini dress all summer and I finally found it! I love how the skirt flares out a bit like a skater dress, but the best part is the lace-up detail on the back! Decided to get extra girly with braids and cat-eye sunglasses.
How's everyone's summer going? I've just been extra lazy, and since it's the first summer since 2008 that I haven't been travelling I can really feel my wanderlust slowly creeping back into my consciousness. Maybe I just need a project to get preoccupied with, something to really get excited about... who knows. But really I have been enjoying doing not very much at all, it's just the lazy hazy days of summer.

It's all the glory that I bare

Sooo my nail art kick is back with full force after I fiiiinally received my package of nail art bits and bobs off eBay (thanks Canada Post, luv ya too!). I bought some teeny tiny beads and some half pearls, but most imporantly a pack of 500 fake nails for like 5 bucks including shipping! They're blank because I like to create my own designs, and with 500 nails who knows what kind of crazy shiz I'll come up with. They came in 10 different sizes all labelled by numbers. I found which sizes fit best for each finger and marked the little baggies so I know my size for all the future nail designs to come (seriously guys, I'm so pumped the ideas are makin my head spin)!!
IMG_3172 I knew before I bought these that I'd have to find a way to keep them in place while I paint them and stuff, so I brainstormed and ended up using double sided tape on a box... primative, yet very functional (doubles as a nail art supplies box too)!

IMG_3174 I'm starting out with a simple 2D design, but don't worry the crazy will come! Started with a grey base...
IMG_3176 Then did nude coloured half moons. I cut and filed them in a claw shape before painting the tips black, and that's it!
IMG_3186 Part of me wants to start bookmarking some nail art tumblrs, but really I always prefer to think up ideas for myself overwise I just feel like I'm copying... yet on the other hand, I'm also really lazy so any extra effort can and will be avoided.
Anyways, do you guys wanna see my new shoes (wow, smooth transition)?? I bought them from the small town thift store I mentioned a few posts back, and HOLY CRAP my heart stopped when I saw them. They are basically me, in shoe form:
Crushed velvet, clunky heel, black, stretchy ankle boot. They are the new centerpeice for my chunky black boot shrine (not literally, I don't have one... or do I? ...No I don't. Guys, I'm really tired).

Ohhhhh and one more thing: I'M A BLONDE
IMG_3193_2 Hahaha look at me all decieving, making you think this post was about nails and shoes. No way dudes, it's about something waaaay more deep and thought-provoking. I mean, look at my hair!!1~*$*(!@~

Lol, look at me I'm awesome at posing. So yeah, I got this done as a dontputitoffanylongerjustdoitalready Birthday gift to myself (mine was on the 14th, I'm 22 now babes). Not much else to say but I love it I love it I was born to be blonde, and I love it.

Like I said, I'm tired, so I'm going to bed now. Goodnight.

In my dreams

Whoa whoa WHOA, waaaay to long with no post. Sorry dudes, let's just pretend the last 2 weeks never happened, k? Just dropping in for a quick post for now, and hopefully I'll have some cool features lined up for y'all soon.
I've come in possession of some pretty amazing pieces lately, thrifted and some not (very rare for me if you've noticed!). Example, these perrrrrfect Topshop jeans! My friend who was away in England for uni just came back 2 weeks ago, but before she left there I gave her a shopping list of things to get for me... one of them being these jeans! I've been searching for the perfect pair of high waisted, super flared jeans for literally months after seeing Selina's amazing jean find and the inspiration behind them. I had been mostly looking on eBay, but haden't come across anything I love for a decent price. Then through some kind of perfectly timed miracle I was browsing Topshop's online shop when I saw these jeans. It was fate. They're from the Tall line so they're suuuuper long, which I love cos I can wear massive plaforms and they still graze the ground. Seriously guys, I'm in love and I'm going to have a very 70's summer with these bad boys, a la Dazed and Confused.
Check me out, hangin at a strip mall. Badass.

Not a bad fit considering I didn't get to try them on, just blindly picked a size to be honest!

So that's it for now, maybe I'll have some quicky updates soon on what I've been up to and show some of the other great things I've found... perhaps even a DIY or two? Lord knows I haven't done one in ages. We'll see!

Teenagers from mars

I feel like I've had a lot of free time lately, but of course I haven't really done anything creative or productive because those kinds of things require effort. I haven't even been taking proper outfit pictures, BUT I have been taking advantage of the camera on my new iPhone so I thought I'd share with you guys a few recent looks...
I wore this a few weeks ago already, but I'm still really feeling it. Thrifted Miami tank, what I call my "PTA meeting trousers", and these chunky wooden sandals I got on sale at Aldo. I wear them with everything, I seriously can't stop.
See, I really do wear these sandals with everything! I love them with black tights, which are manditory when wearing these shorty short jean shorts (thrifted). Also wearing this crop top thrifted at a VV half off sale. I bought it aaaages ago but only now am I ready to wear it in it's full, midriff baring glory. Also wearing a thrifted flannel shirt. ALSO I just really loved my hair that day so I thought I'd get a close up... I think the green hair actually looks sweet with a side part, no?
And finally, I wore this yesterday to bum around and then go buy some frozen lasagne. Speaking of food, has everyone seen my food blog?? I just realized I've only ever mentioned it on twitter I think... but I digress! The outfit consists of my fav thrifted goth boots, black leggings from Winners, tshirt from UO, vintage Burton buffalo check jacket (my brother's friend left it at our house and I claimed it), and this cutey little backpack I thrifted for $3 a few days ago.

Maybe I'll try to do some sewing or something remotely productive for the rest of the day... all this spare time is actually boring as hell.
