One Fine Day.

This was a wonderful summer day, spent visiting the Waldorf Hotel, which is situated so perfectly in relevance to our house. There were several art exhibits/galleries and production companies set up in different rooms, and Kate and I had fun wandering through.

I wish the weather had been warmer this summer, I only got to wear this dress a couple of times! It's a real shame, since it's one of the first dresses I've had that has great back details. Funny story, I snagged this dress when it accidentally got priced at $20! I caught it (and know the protocol), and the sweet deal was mine.

I've got to admit, I was a little nervous to post a photo of my...erm...rear view. As a lady who is blessed (or cursed) in the area of booty, I am always unnerved by photos shot from behind. Generally shot front on, I figured that since we know each other fairly well, a little 360° perspective was due. Perhaps I'm being neurotic and self-conscious, but even bloggers have their days, no?

A big thanks to Nylon Magazine, for featuring my tumblr as their "Site of The Day" last weekend!!! I was very surprised when a friend told me about the post!

I'm Blue.

Wanted Shoes was so kind to send a pair of oxford heels a little while ago! I'd be searching for quite some time for a pair, but nothing quite fit the bill. I love the cone heel, and the contrast detail on the vamp. I'd be lying if I said I haven't been tempted to wear them with almost every outfit this week. I'm a lucky gal!

This top is from an excellent boutique at Main & 10th called The Archtype. Mitzi and I had been there together about a year ago. When we revisited it on my birthday, we discovered that the stock has gotten much better since then. They carry many wholesale independent designers that I didn't realize were available in Vancouver! If you are on Main, you should pop by.

In other news: Marisa dyed her ends blue! She was already super gorgeous, but I feel like the colored tips take her to...anotha level!!! Har har. Admire her aqua locks!

Safari Disco Club.

I had the privilege of catching Yelle's Vancouver show at the Commedore Ballroom in early summer. It ended up being quite the evening, with Adam and I out until the wee hours of the morning (although we didn't originally plan to do so)! The show was spot on, the band was so energetic and sweet. We managed to stand right in the front, and I couldn't help but get real sweaty! We danced our hearts out the entire time. This was the night that broke the soles of these wedges entirely in half... How sweet is Yelle's red cheetah catsuit? It is one of the coolest unitards I've ever seen!

PS. If you ever need a reason to dance, this song should get you in the mood. I can't techtonik like the dancers, but the song gets me going!

La Taqueria.

Another silly date after school on Wednesday with Marisa. This time we went to Dressew and lingered in the "bridal" section. I don't know why, but I always want to wear bridal headwear for daytime. Most of the time I hope that no one notices the resemblance to bridal accouterments...

Say hello to one of my newly acquired monster wedges. I splurged at Urban Outfitters as a sort of early birthday present to myself...I can't say that they are all that comfortable but they are very pretty to look at. Sometimes, that's all that matters.

We ate lunch at La Taqueria that day, one of my favourite haunts on W. Hastings. Tasty lunches and very cute boys (seriously, one of them is a dead ringer for Jake Gyllenhaal. I do not kid about these things). Basically two things I love in the same place. WIN.

How Am I Doin'?

Sometimes, I try to leave my usual photo location (alleyway behind my house), and find new shooting spots! Unfornately in this case, it resulted in me chasing the sun and almost tumbling onto concrete in 4 inch shoes. No bloggers were harmed in the making of this outfit post.

The Bright Baby Eyes of the Chickadee.

I nearly fell out of my chair the first time I heard Mountain Men. I'm not quite sure how they slipped past my radar, but I have fallen hard and fast for this trio. A sucker for harmonic, melodic folky sounds, these three make some of the sweetest music I've heard in a long time. The way their voices blend is a feat, and the result are honeyed tunes with folk, country and vintage influences. You can listen to their YouTube playlist here, I hope you love them as much as I do!

Summer Jumper.

Just a quick post today! This jumper is probably one of my most beloved thrifted finds. I love jumpers and rompers for the very reason that they layer very well, but are usually pretty outstanding as pieces themselves. Also, jumpers fool me into thinking I'm wearing a school uniform, and that makes getting dressed ten times easier. Love me some simple dressing! Back when Modcloth featured me on their blog, they sent a lovely package with my namesake dress and a couple of other things. I nearly cried with joy when I saw that the Cambridge Satchel was part of the care package. I've been stalking this beauty ever since I saw it on the web some 3 years ago, and finally I've got one of my own! I think she'll only get better with age.

Nordic Winds.

Rodarte for Opening Ceremony for Fall/Winter 2011 is spell-binding, as usual. I don't know how they do it, but everything the Mulleavys touch turns to gold. Nordic touches, sky high shoes, floral on floral and scrumptious knits reign in this particular collection. Sigh, if only I could get my hands on a piece...

You Have Been Loved, By Someone Good.

I was lucky enough to receive a Stop Staring dress a couple of weeks ago, and I knew it would be perfect for my birthday. I've always admired the saucy pinup vibe of the company's dresses, but hadn't been able to wear one yet. The silhouette and color are out of my usual comfort zone, but what better time than a new year to break out of the norm?

My birthday was honestly amazing. I saw so, so, SO many people that I love. I had dinner at home in Abbotsford with my whole family on Wednesday night (Momma made me ribs, YUM) and spent the day on Thursday hanging out with Mitzi. We ate lunch at East is East (absolutely delicious if you are ever on Main) and took in some vintage shopping! That evening, we went to Havana on Commercial for a scrumptious dinner. Afterwards we went out and danced the night away. I managed 3 wardrobe changes, but only managed to capture decent photos of one. Oh, and a bonus shot of me and the wonderful Hello Kitty cake Kate made me! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

A big thanks to my wonderful friends and family, I have definitely been loved this year!

Happy Birthday to Yours Truly.

It's a short post today, I'm running out the door to meet Mitzi for the beginning of birthday celebrations! Today I am 22 years old. I can't believe I'm already I the only one who thought I would have accomplished more by now, ha?

I want to say a big thank you to all of my wonderful friends and family. They have been there for me over the years, and I really feel super blessed to know so many lovely people in this world. Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Take Me To Seattle!

Happy first day of school for those who are going back to class today! Hope you have a wonderful Labour Day weekend, mine was very busy and full of loved ones.

When I said I was majorly behind in posts, I meant it! I went to Seattle back in March, and totally forgot to post pictures from the day. I discovered a vintage paper shop in the lower part of the market, I will definitely be going back! Yummy food and sunshine, what a lovely day. Also, this sweet dress is courtesy of Lulu's. I love the full silhouette and fun print, it makes me want to dance constantly.

A quick hello to Dylana (who I saw at the busstop in front of Front and Co. last week) and to Stephanie (who I saw on the CanadaLine a couple of months ago). It's always cool to run into people who read my little corner of the web!
