Roaring Fun

IMG_1454 IMG_1424 IMG_1475  IMG_1414 IMG_1419IMG_1466

I went to my old work today to kick it with my homie Jerry. He is incredible at thrifting and always pays homage to 90’s-hip-hop with his kits. Polo all day, every day. I’ve never seen him wear the same thing twice.

Since he is just the best, he hooks me up with maaaaaad swag; I’m talking duffles bags full of awesome shit. An adventure for another day though; Today we got drunk at the bar for old time’s sake, and to celebrate what I like to call Turnt Up Tuesdays. Matis, our sexy argentinian friend joined us as well. We had a wonderful time playing in the cherry blossoms while smoking a joint and getting casually day drunk.

Since I’m rollin solo, I don’t have anyone to take my picture on the regular anymore which is totally a nuisance. I offered a $4 beer, they offered their photography skills.

I’m wearing an Aritzia La Notte Tee, H&M pants & belt, old-ass booties from Le Chateau (?!), BCBG bag, and a jacket I got in Scotland for 22 Pounds.

Fashion Socks

IMG_0740 IMG_0725 IMG_0719 IMG_0791 IMG_0777

Socks are dope. There is no pleasure that compares to a new pair hugging the arches of your feet. These aren’t new, or even mine, they are stolen from my boyfriends dresser, but that’s irrelevant. Out of all the companies producing ‘fashion’ socks now-a-days, INstance is my number one pick. I find they have more options in general and the designs are extremely versatile with sophisticated patterns that use colours in a optimal way. (Board of Trade on Main has lots)

I have been wearing these cut-offs literally all summer long. They are a $20 pair of men’s Topshop jeans that I hacked off in order to keep it cool. Sometime they bunch up and make me look like I have a dick, or a saggy ass, but I totally still dig it. As for the boots, they are my Isabel Marant look-a-likes from Zara. 

I picked up the sweater at H&M in San Francisco circa 2010, and it still gets regular exercise. It’s made from linen which gives it a great drape, especially when it’s tied around the waist. Throw on a white tank from Aritzia, add my trusty TNA backpack filled with gin n juice to play a little with pattern, and voila! ready for whatever adventures come my way.

Side note: I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful place. I fucking love Vancouver.

Skirt, Tank, Sweater

Layers! Neutrals! Clark Park! Yay!

It finally feels like summer and to celebrate I gave my legs the best shave they’ve had in months. Naturally, this called for a skirt. This comfortable little number was scooped up from a clothing exchange a couple months ago  (Thanks Sophia!) and has already been put to good use.

My outfits tend to be slightly bi-polar day-to-day spanning from hobo-chic, to rockstar to full on prep and everywhere in between. But thats the beauty of getting dressed! Every day you get to show the world how you feel.

Today I was rockin my trusty Seychelles, a purse a dear friend brought back from Italy, a heathered  Zara racerback underneath a very old T. Babaton sweater. The sweater is a woven silk knit and honestly one of the most high-maintenance articles of clothing that I own, it snags like no-ones business. Thankfully with careful pulling and tugging the warp always goes back into place so it’s not too big of  a deal. Wooooooorth it – the hang is always perfect so I’m willing to put up with any downfalls.

I almost got into a fight with two homeless bums this day, they were fucking with my shit. Lucky bastards, they obviously don’t understand the magnitude of my mighty fists.

Totally kidding, I ran away like the pussy that I am. But I did unlease a little bit of vulgar backlash on his assthough.. No need to worry..

I Love Ugly

Why yes! there is a penis on my shirt.. First off, thanks for noticing.

My blog really should be called “How to wear boyfriend jeans every day of your life.” I’ve been rocking them religiously for the last 2 years now and they are my main hit. Me and my boyfriend are the same size pants so the possibilities are endless.

I just love boys clothes I guess. Comfy, cool and as long as the silhouette is right; pretty sexy too. This sweater is one of my favs to ‘borrow’ aka steal.  I’ll admit I don’t own anything by Alternative Apparel personally.. but that will change soon. [Amazing company, upcoming post]

Maybe we should talk about the 5 panel? This hat has been my go-to for the last couple months and seems to kick-up every outfit. Its the best hat I’ve ever owned.. It’s got fucking butterflies and fruit on it.

With so many great 5 panels out there it’s easy to fall in love. I have a 2 tone one.. but I can’t help but want another pattern. Backwards, forwards and to the side. This “I Love Ugly” was picked up on Main at Board of Trade. Awesome store, awesome merch and awesome owner. We ended up talking to her for almost an hour.

Sunshine & Sangria

IMG_0224IMG_0249IMG_0272IMG_0268I love me some sangria. Nothing says summer like a wine beverage packed with fruit.

My love is so strong I go to lengths to search out restaurants that offer pitchers around the city, for the record my vote goes to Falconettis on commercial. They offer both red and white variations with a generous amount of fresh fruit and its absolutely delicious.

I like making my own too, mainly because I get to add vodka, but sometimes store bought stuff is the easiest option.  When you are out and about and engaging in a little public alcohol consumption, sangria options are limited.

Cue Boones. Anyone who says they don’t like Boones is lying. Cheap, doesn’t taste like booze, and it gets you buzzed. This bottle of sangria is $5 bucks give or take. The taste is surprising for the price, and the only thing that’s really missing is the fruit.

Next time I’ll just grab a prepared fruit cup to make it legit.
