Roaring Fun

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.

Aviators & Cardigans

IMG_1362 IMG_1379 IMG_1382 IMG_1375 IMG_1397

I ordered these jeans from Shop Bop while working as receptionist at an office in Calgary. I really stepped up my online shopping game at that job.. well kinda. These bad boys from Current/Elliot are 2 sizes too big, but I’ve tried to work that as a draping advantage. Optimal for penis-silhoutte envy.

Hurray! It’s 2014’s first time seeing sandals. I got these beauties from forever 21 for like $11 bucks if you can believe it. They makes tying together neutrals a breeze, so simple. So strappy.

Hurley purse, cut-off no-name tee, H&M glasses, and an Armani Exchange sweater my mum got me for $40. She just loves me that much.

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

IMG_0480Untitled-3 IMG_0452 IMG_0442 IMG_0434

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..

Easy Tiger

IMG_0182IMG_0187IMG_0177IMG_0196In total, I have three tattoos. One when I was 18, one when I was partying along Granville on a casual Wednesday night, and the most recent a birthday present from my beau.

First sitting was the outline and it was on my actual birthday, naturally I was wasted. The tattoo didn’t even hurt one bit. In fact, I thought the needle didn’t have shit on me and was convinced pain was my bitch.

A couple weeks later I got the colour while sober… OH. MY. GOD. I am never, ever getting a tattoo without some sort of substance running through my veins ever again. I completely lost my shit.

After my traumatizing experience we hit up Meat & Bread, the porchetta was great but all the hype over the sandwich shop was a little bit of a let down. Delicious non the less.. Just a bit over played. And of course, dirty asian aloe drank to accompany.

Big thanks to Lino and his amazing girlfriend Jodie at Dharma studios. You guys rock.

Im wearing guy’s Topshop jeans (no surprise), TNA backpack, H&M sunnies, Topshop kicks, and as for T-shirt; and old as fuck basic white-t with the arms cut off by yours truly with a Wilfred bralette to sex it up a tad.

Strapping Good Time

2013-05-15 23.10.46 2013-05-15 06.19.072013-05-15 06.19.10 2013-05-15 06.18.51 2013-05-15 06.19.31

I’ve wanted strappy shoes for too long it seems like. Originally I was thinking royal blue silver, but then decided to go with a classic black and white colour scheme. I was so close to ordering these Tryst pumps from Nasty Gal because they are perfect..

Tryst pump

But waiting was suddenly not an option, my birthday money was hot in my hands and I had to do something about it. I decided to go with the patterned beauties from Zara. Although extremely bad-ass, you may notice my toes sticking out with band-aids wrapped around.. Thats because the top strap rubs my fat little toes.

No bother, its absolutely worth it in my opinion.

Top shop jeans (My boyfriends hand me downs), Zara shoes (duh), white t-shirt, Zara bag and H&M jacket.
