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!
