Marky Mark.

Another oldie, but a goodie! In class, we got to watch an old CK benefit runway show with Marky Mark wearing scandalous boxers and being a bad boy of the 90s. I'm not going to lie, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute... Also, my instructor has a autographed photo of Marky in that iconic ad. YUM.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween weekend. I can't say that I have any grandiose plans for the evening, I'm in my last week of classes and have lots to do! Let me know what you are dressing up as, I can live vicariously through you.

I was hanging out with Julian, Marisa and Kate that day. I had forgotten how striking Mr. Briggs was with short hair!

Something Different.

Sometimes the most unexpected places make a perfect backdrop. This set was taken in a very small "alley" (space) between two shops on Main St. Kate took these shots of me, I love how they turned out! Not as vibrant as my usual shots, but the de-saturation definitely adds to the outfit.

Labour Day.

As long ago as it was beautiful here in Vancouver on Labour Day. A rare day with no school and no work! I was able to spend it with my beautiful younger sis, Grace. We hopped around our favorite downtown haunts, and of course took some outfit pictures.

I'm fairly low maintenance when it comes to makeup and the like, but when I got a lovely brow kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills, I had to try it out. I always feel a little weird because my eyebrows don't really show up most days...luckily the powder wasn't too drastic, and I just felt like I had defined eyebrows for once. Thanks for brow kit Anastasia!

Blogger Date.

I love hanging out with Zoƫ! Yesterday we ate at Lucy's, roamed Main street and mused about blogging and life. Our day consisted of mowing down on really delicious food, checking out lovely vintage and singing along to BSB (okay, that last part was just me...) It's a pretty wonderful thing that something like blogging led me to meet a new friend, especially one who I've hit it off so well with. I tend to find that hanging with fellow bloggers, I get so busy chatting I forget to properly document. I apologize for the lack of photos, it just means we were having a good time! Can't wait to see her again, and so stoked that we live in the same city!!! Here's to friendship & happy times!

A Hop, Skip and a Jump.

Two of my favorite thrifted finds: the collar on the blouse is perfection, and the color of the hat is my favorite shade in the world. I was ecstatic when I found both of them! As usual, I'm a ham in this series. It's really difficult for me to make serious faces for the camera, I always feel silly doing so!

Tea and Catch-Up.

How cute is Marisa's cat scarf? This day involved school and a love chat afterwards with Emily. I've known Em since high school, and whenever our schedules co-ordinate, we get together, drink tea, eat copious amounts of food and play catch up about our lives and fashion. I look forward to our tea pow-wows every time! I owned these shoes for precisely one wear before they literally disintegrated (outer and insole). I hope I can find another pair like them one day, the shape is pretty much my dream sandal...

The Best Days.

With such a busy schedule this school year, I've got a new appreciation for the little pockets of time I get to spend with those I love. Perfect example? An afternoon spent musing, eating monster cheap sushi, drinking bubble tea and taking photos with Marisa and Julian. I have said it a million times, but I am super glad to have been so lucky as to meet these two! Friends 4EVA.

Easy Going.

A fairly simple (and comfortable outfit) for when it's not quite warm, but not quite cold either. These white boots are my go to stylish comfort on days when I don't feel like braving the heights of my wedges.

I'm Just Squinting At The Sun.

Things might get very quiet around here in the next couple of weeks, I am entering my final weeks of school (forever?)! You can always check my tumblr for inspiration, it's the easiest for me to keep updated.

Turning thrifted or vintage items into something else is one of my favourite aspects of older clothing. This skirt used to be a girl's dress, I lopped off the top and viola! I have me a velvet skirt, perfect for this winter. As for these lovely oxfords, I'm going to be heartbroken when they are too worn in to wear. The patent exterior is so lovely, but they are slowly crackling away :(

Also, the sort of grouchy face I making is just me squinting at the sunshine.

I thought the day would never come: Topshop in Vancouver! The Brits have landed in The Bay downtown!!! Marisa and I thought it'd be the perfect for our Styling end-of-term project, involving trying on all the lovely wares in the Topshop section. A little birdy told me that come spring, the entire basement will be TopMan and TopShop...I can't wait! The palettes and fabrics are so lovely, it's going to be hard to purchase anything at H&M after getting a taste of real high street.

As for my outfit, I snagged another super cheap pair of shoes at UO this week! This wedges cost...wait for it.......$10!!! I'd lusted after them all season, and finally they are mine. Perfectly neutral but still an interesting shape, not to mention super comfy and lightweight too. Yay bargain hunting! Good things come to those who wait?

P.S. Meese's colors remind me of Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind!
P.S.S. Hi to Alex! He ran into me as I was waiting for the bus on Wednesday! I hope I wasn't too awkward, it's always nice when readers say hi :)
