Am I the only one who thinks this is just too much… The collection? The lighting? That one pose?

It’s almost as if Kate Moss collaborated with TOPSHOP to play a trick on the hungry consumers using her popularity as leverage. Inspired by her own closet sure; but its her closet. When am I ever going to wear such elaborate pieces? They look incredible on Kate… Because it’s her.

Last time I checked, I wasn’t invited to any over-the-top rockstar parties complete with paparazzi. I mean.. It’s almost impractical, really.I get that fringe is trendy, and when done right can totally work. But 2 ft long! That’s just excessive.

That black dress is sexy as fuck; but it’s so vivacious it’d probably only be suitable for night and it’s much too tight to get wasted in anyways. Same with the other maxi! It would take a highly skilled swag artist to be able to incorporate the PERFECT accessories to pull these off without looking like a try-hard.

I do have faith that the basic fillers within the collection will be wicked and totally easy to incorporate within one’s closet.

Betcha the price point is gonna be ludacris though.

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.

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.
