Photos from the same sitting as the other day, just taken with a flash. I apologize for the redundancy, I just liked these ones.. I think its because in these ones, my eyes are the exact same colour as my jacket. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend ! And hello to all of you new followers ! :)

School Days

I feel like I haven't worn a dress in a long time, so today I tossed on an old favourite for my classes ! I also realized that I had never shown you two of my favourite possessions: my black vintage brief-case bag, and my Steve Madden clogs (which, by the way, are not floating magically in the photo above.. I am holding them strangely so you can't see my hand !) ! I got the bag at a thrift store in Niagara for only $4. The clogs were a steal as well, because they were originally $130, marked down to $40, and then when I went to the cash register to pay for them the man said they were only $20 ! I was in a total state of shock !

I bought these two bottles of Rimmel nail polish a few weeks ago, and I really like them. The brush is extra wide, so you can paint an entire nail in practically one stroke. The only thing I find annoying about this product is that it peels off easily. I have a project due tomorrow, so I should work on that now. Goodbye !

dress: H&M
boots: stolen from my mom
cardigan: can't remember !

Goodbye, lost follower !

Losing followers makes me sad :(   I'm in my Design Principles class for the next 3 hours, and I'll just be thinking about it the whole time. Its almost like someone breaking up with you.. you just get self-consious and wonder why they would have stopped liking you ! haha. I'm bored in class, if you can't tell. I am fascinated right now by how much my teacher looks like Kate Winslett. I rewatched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind the other night.. oh how I love that movie. How are you today ? Tell me a funny story or something you need to vent.. just say anything so I know there are still people out there who read this ! :) Have a good one, my friends !

I changed the header, again. I apologize for my excessive need for change, but I got bored again. The changes in this blog are definitely reflecting the changes in my personal style... everything is being simplified. A year ago, I would not be caught dead in such plain outfits, but college has brought out the "slob" in me. However, I have found many ways to dress comfortably without sacrificing personal style. For instance, instead of wearing sweat suits or pyjamas, I wear slouchy shirts with scarves, oversized cardigans, tights, and then either my moccasins or my mom's brown boots.

Today, I got a new fall coat and scarf while I was shopping for my brother's birthday present. Now, I know my mom reads this blog, so I will clarify that I needed a longer fall coat and I got it for only $20 ! With fall beginning, I am getting more into layering, which is difficult because my roommates like having the thermostat set to 25 degrees Celsius !! Anyways, I am off to attempt to sleep, despite the ridiculously loud party happening down the hall... if I hear "olayyy, olay, olay, olay!" one more time I am going to lose it. I hope that you are having a great week, so far ! Leave me a comment and ask me a question or something, because I miss hearing from you guys ! :(

Featured Blog: Donna Romina

I have been following Romina's blog, donnaromina.blogspot.com, for a few months now and it seems like every one of her posts leaves me having a "wow!" moment. Her outfits are consistently creative, and reflect her personal style which I would refer to as "structured hippie", because while her wardrobe is very chic and edgy, there is usually a bit of a free-spirit angle thrown in. Did I mention that she is only 15 ?? I wish that I could have been as stylish as her when I was that age ! I definitely recommend checking out Romina's blog, if you are in a fashion rut and are seeking some inspiration. Have a great day !

1) a photo of me wearing a cape, painting my nails.
2) This story of a super sweet stranger who made my day through facebook. I received a random message from a friend of a friend, whom I have never met, and he said a few very sweet (not at all rude, or inappropriate) things. Compliments are a sure way to make anyone smile, so thank you _______.

I cheated to get what I've got

I am loving the insane amount of natural light that my dorm room gets.. I have always been drawn to sunny rooms, which was why I was sad when I found out that the house my parents bought last year was almost all shade. I am saying that I love sunshine now, but I bet I'll be saying something different when the sun wakes me up early tomorrow ! On a different note: Today, I went on an adventure in London (Ontario) with my new friends Sean and Isaac. We went to Starbucks, and then sat in Victoria Park and watched people pass by... It was lovely !

I got this skirt and vest from H&M on Sunday, with my brother ! For the first time in a long time, I decided to shop by the latest trends. For example, I know that big, chunky knits are in.. so I bought that vest. I also know that camel is one of the most popular colours this season, so of course I bought a camel pencil skirt ! I always get strange looks from my school mates when I wear that vest, but I just think "man, it is like a blanket that I can wear to class !!" Anyways, I hope that you are all having a fantastic week, and are highly anticipating this fall season, like I am !

skirt- H&M
vest- H&M
boots- stolen from my mother

Sour Skittles

School is very fun so far ! Lots of work, but I am really enjoying it. I am currently eating some Double-Sour Skittles, and I am not liking them.. I'm going going to go have some of my school's amazing stir-fry !

Little Sister costume

  
I never posted about the results of my latest sewing project ! Last week, I finished making a costume for my friend, Gabby, for Fan Expo. She wanted to dress up as the Little Sister character from the video game BioShock. I think it turned out pretty well, considering I have never played the game, and was just basing the costume on one photo that I had !
