Aztec

I needed an outfit for my sister's stagette.  An 80s outfit. 


                        
So I took a friend to Value Village for support as I don't have thrifting skills or much patience without backup.

cardi: Value Village
top: Suzy Shier
jeans: Forever 21

necklace: small shop in England
bracelet: gift from my Uncle




Today I'm thankful for trying something new.

Swish

I found this dress in my mom's closet. It's one of the only items of hers that I can fit into.
                     

I like wearing it because I can imagine her wearing it.

jacket: Old Navy
dress: Ricki's
shoes: Spring


Today I'm thankful for things of hers.

Somewhere in the middle

Having a house of one's own means that you can take photos outside and not feel like the neighbourhood weirdo.

May 2015


I also love that my garage is more of a shack. A so bad it's good shack.
top: Ricki's
pants: Old Navy
shoes: Aldo



Today I'm grateful for being able to sit in these sitting shoes.

Goodbye apartment

The Gentleman Caller and I have lived in this apartment for almost two years. And I lived in the building before we went to Australia. I love this apartment. The building was built in 1928, the ceilings are high, the windows large, the wooden floors and radiators perfect.

I get really nostalgic for places, even if I'm ready to move on. We lived here. We loved here. Our moms both knew this place. We're moving soon... by the time this posts, we will have moved.

But for now this is home...

Re-evaluating

I've never really enjoyed shopping at Old Navy because nothing is organize or put away neatly.
I also take exception to having to stand in line to both try stuff on and to pay...

mar 2015


However, I have picked up a number of cute (so cute) things there lately so I'm rethinking my stance.

dress: Old Navy
cardi: Ricki's
tights: We Love Colours
scarf: gift from my mom, from Spain
boots: Jessica Simpson

Glitter and gold

Smart Set closed. I don't love shopping online but I don't see much other choice.

1 Dec 2014


Take this sweater. It's cute but I'm not sure I would have gone to the trouble of ordering it. I accidentally swerved in to the store and it was mine. Maybe this will help me save money?

sweater: Smart Set
skirt: Ricki's circa 2005
tights: We Love Colours
boots: Jessica Simpson
