A blog first!

A first on the blog today. I'm wearing the same shoes that I wore yesterday. GASP!  I KNOW! It's unprecedented.

Vest: Liliblue (bought at Millennium in Guelph)
Shirt: Joe Fresh
Skirt: Noa Noa
Shoes: Fluevog Half Truths | Tanya

Apparently it is also the first time I've worn this skirt on the blog. I've had it for a few years so I find that strange. I just looked through my flickr photos too see if it appears there but I apparently doesn't. Hunh.

It's pretty flouncy and I like the way it goes with my kitten heels.

My lace vest doesn't show up at all in these photos. I'll have to wear it again when I'm wearing a lighter coloured shirt.

Whoops! Outtake!

On Monday, White Lies, my second favourite band (after Duran Duran, of course) released their third album. Apparently only in the UK since my iTunes says it won't be out until August 20th. Not sure why in this day and age of digital music that we continue to have separate release dates. It's maddening!

Here's the video of their first song off the album, There Goes Our Love Again.

Hidilly ho neighbourino

S'up yo?! How's it goin? once again I'm tardy! Let's do this!

August 8

Dress: Thrifted (last worn here)
Booties: Fluevog Bellevues | Ida Clark (last worn here)

I wasn't entirely sure about this shoe choice but they were quite popular at work so I guess they were ok.

This dress is really more of a winter dress since it has velvety fabric but I've kind of been in a black mood.

July 9

On Friday I went a little casual. More casual than I usually do.

Top and skirt: Melissa Bolduc from Fresh Collective (last worn here)
Shoes: Hush Puppies

Maybe I should have worn the stripey booties with this?

I had been wearing my bronze Fluevogs but I changed into these just before I remembered to take my picture. Whoops.

August 12

And today was another blackish day.

Dress: americanretro (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Half Truths | Tanya

New shoooooes! On Friday I stopped at Fluevog on my way home intending to just pet the new velvety boots (the blue, so gorgeous) and of course I ended up trying on a few pairs. Surprisingly, I loved these the most.

I've said this before but I'm a sucker for straps and buckles.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I liked these so much. They are my dream shoe from the 1980s that I never would have been allowed to have. Pointy toe? check. Straps? check. Buckles? check. Gothy? check check.

I'm not usually a kitten heel fan but these are delightful!

and boom! New post. I'm outta here.

Howdie internets. How's it going? I had a nice weekend away and now I'm back into the old routine. Work, dinner, sleep, repeat. I did have one little glitch along the way. About 3 years ago, when I went off the birth control pill, I finally learned the reality that is P....M....S. I had a little crying episode and melt down Monday night. Then as quickly as it came on, it disappeared. Gotta say, it's pretty horrible!

Despite that, I enjoy being a girl...

I enjoy being a girl because I like wearing pretty things.

August 6

Dress: eShakti (last worn here)
Shoes: Irregular Choice (from

Here's my new hair, sans red. It's been 6 years since I had it put in. And the two times I had red put in here in Toronto it just faded to pink. So until I find a place who can do it properly I'll just stick with one colour.

Unfortunately this is BLACK, not dark brown. *sigh*

This weekend I went to see a production of The Mikado. I've seen it a bunch of times and can practically sing along. Anyway, the actress who played Katisha was Jean Stilwell who is a Canadian opera singer. Right now her hair is very similar to mine.

The next day, I went to another concert and a woman approached me and said "You sang beautifully last night". HAHAHAHHA! Totally awesome.

You know what else is awesome?

Kitty cat shoes!!! MEOW!!  Sometimes Irregular Choice shoes can be over the top but I couldn't resist these.

And I couldn't resist this dress on Modcloth.

August 7

With my love of red, you'd think I've had a gazillion red dresses but I really only have 1 and it's wool.

Dress: Folter from Modcloth
Shoes: Miss L Fire (last worn here)

It's a very comfortable dress but again, my stupid long waist means that the waist of the dress sits at the bottom of my ribs. Not totally annoying though.

Hangs pretty well, no?

The "piece de resistance" was really this bracelet, also from Modcloth.

Spooky! I wore my skull earrings too.

I'm watching the movie Brave right now...see you tomorrow.

Omnibus post

Another week, another catch up post. I thought when I got my couch I'd be all over the blogging again but I've just turned into a potato instead. So here I am doing an "omnibus post" again. And it's a long weekend for us so I'll be away until next Tuesday. I can't believe it's August already!

July 26

I think my face says it all. This outfit was boring. I was wearing a belt earlier but I had a roti for lunch which made me all "bloaty" so I took it off.

Dress: thrifted
Shoes: Fluevog Truth | Pilgrim (last worn here) 

Yeah, pretty underwhelming. I might put this dress in my donate pile. That would help free up some space in my closet.

July 29
On Monday I wore my bat dress. Ok, it's not really a bat dress but I think the embroidery at the bottom looks like flying bats.

Dress: Free People (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Hopefuls | Assured (last worn here)


See, it even has wings on the sides. Like bats!

Tuesday's outfit wasn't photo worthy so lets move on to Wednesday, July 31.

Cardigan: Pretty Things Boutique
Dress: Judy Tampa (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Bellevues | Laura Evans (last worn here)

This outfit made me happy. Black dress and leggings, purple cardigan, shoes with pink buckles.


Yesterday I had my coloured and cut. The red is gone. It's been 7 years so it was time.

Have a nice weekend everyone.
