i know.

all it took was a good cry,
 a good sleep,
and a waking up the next morning to realize.

Would you rather.

 Which hurts the most:
saying something you wish you hadn't
saying nothing and wishing you had?

i'm wishin'

today & tonight.

sweater- Zara, denim button-up- Community thrift, denim jacket & leopard print shoes- F21, distressed jeans- old Hudson jeans, grey toque- Aritzia, skull necklace- Oasap [use: n4w4y5 for 20% off]

Tuesdays & Thursdays are my favorites cause i don't start school until 1.
I wake up at a decent hour, enjoy my breakfast & tea/coffee and read.
Currently enjoying reading "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. I've seen the movie and was told the book was fantastic as well.

Tonight i watched "Never Let Me Go".
oh gosh.
... my two favorite quote(s):

"It had never occurred to me that our lives, which had been so closely interwoven, could unravel with such speed. If i'd known, maybe i'd have kept tighter hold of them and not let unseen tides pull us apart".

"Maybe none of us really understand what we've lived through, or feel we've had enough time".

makes my heart both melt & hurt.

"When you develop an infatuation for someone you always find a reason to believe that this is exactly the person for you. It doesn't need to be a good reason. Taking photographs of the night sky, for example. Now, in the long run, that's just the kind of dumb, irritating habit that would cause you to split up. But in the haze of infatuation, it's just what you've been searching for all these years."

Man Repeller @ Secret Location.

what i wore: (in a nutshell: LAYERS) vintage blouse, grey shirt- Oak and Fort, camo tee- Community Thrift, kimono- China, denim jacket & clutch- F21, distressed jeans- Zara, New Balance shoes, knuckle rings- Papers & Peonies

thank you, iphone, for taking some semi-decent quality pics on a very special evening. 
okay, so... 
at Secret Location in Gastown.

i had an amazing evening. 
my sis & i met her together and we chatted her up like she was an old friend.
she's cool & quirky just as i'd expected. 
she asked me about my (signature) lipstick (you guys see it on my lips in basically every post). Divine lipstick by Covergirl + MAC magenta lip pencil
she complimented my shoes & said she got them in burgundy, AKA oxblood.
and i died and went to heaven when she said she loved my outfit.
that's it. that's all i needed. her approval, and i could continue living life.

okay, that's sad.
i'm only being slightly sarcastic. 
i won't lie, i was trying to swallow the star-struck giddiness i had building up. 
i mean, she's the first well-known blogger i've met that i truly admire.
so it was neat.

met up with my friend, Cat, who is wearing the beige Moschino blazer + the palm trees design, and ran into Lauren + Danielle who looked ravishing in some funky vintage-wear. also saw our friend McKenneth AKA Little Fashionisto with his sweet, sleek style.
and Nina, who was djing looked smokin, as usual. 
half way through the night (now onto my #_(?)_ glass of wine....) i realized (or thought at the time) that Nina was dressed like Leandra
we all thought it was a hoot. 

that's all i can "remember".
 i had a blast.

ps. did you notice me & Nik's touch of asian-style to our outfits?
it was her idea.

cat on my hat

toque- H&M

i AM part kitty & bunny, so i thought this look was quite fitting.
...& yes i know i have a toque problem.
a girl can never have too many toques... 

that's a saying, right?

ps. i bought them leather gloves like i said i would, because it was a must
my hands get so dry & chapped in the winter that i need a reliable pair to keep em protected. 
also bought a sweater & denim jacket that you will see in the mere future...

and yet it's just so silly


wanting can still qualify for needing.

 black tee- Cheap Monday, white blouse- Romwe, coat- Aritzia, jeans- JBrands, toque & rhinestone earrings- H&M, grey boots- ASOS

it's now time to wear your toques without shame [yes, the weather says it's most necessary] & dark lipsticks, [ladies]. 
still can't get enough of toque + dangly earrings. 
all winter long, i tell ya.

seriously though, it was freezing today. like beautiful sun shiny but mutha flippin cold.
so instead of buying the big bag & leather gloves i bragged about in my last post i bought a scarf instead.
which makes sense though, right
don't answer that. 
whatever. i needed a scarf. just forgot to add that to my list.

so there.


tuck that

from last week.
i take advantage of tucking my hair into my necklace/blazer/jacket, etc. as much as possible. 
today i work & then i'm gonna shop around for a nice big bag to store my life in & a pair of leather gloves...
 it's gettin to be that time of the year again folks.

i'll love this woman forever & always.
one of my biggest musician inspirations. 


learn to love what you dislike.

black tee- Aritzia, vintage kimono- Wasteland, pinstripe trousers- Zara, sneaker wedges- Gojane, coin necklace- foundbymettarose

i'm not sure i ever got into the whole "pinstripe" clothing idea. 
but i decided i'd buy something i'm not a huge fan of and somehow integrate it into pieces i do like.

i sorta dig the "baggy" trouser look with the sneaker wedges.

i stress distressing.

aztec-style blazer- Hey Jude Shop, galaxy tee & jean button-up- Community Thrift, DIY ripped jeans- [Vintage] Hudsons, New Balance shoes

 And here you can see my "classroom".
i'm in here everyday dancing or working on studies... or sleeping [studentlyfe amirite?]
as for these crazy, distressed jeans- i did em myself. 
i first began the knees slightly ripped, and every time i wore em i'd rip em a little more. 
until... voila!
one day you'll see these jeans with one leg completely torn off...
and then you'll understand why :P
