a thursday affair .

 Oak + Fort black tee, Reigning Champ black sweater (around waist), J Brand Jeans, Nike AF1's, wings+horns vest and bag

yesterday was the first time in months that i'd worn a pair of "skinny" jeans.
i wore the crap outta these (J Brand "Maria") jeans for a full year and then put them to rest in (probably?) March.
for no particular reason, really.
boyfriend/mom jeans are what i replaced them for though.
but when you put on a favorite pair of denim after a long period of them sitting in your drawer
a wonderful feeling of "danggg, these feel GOOOD" generally takes place.

i experienced that.

empty | full

 "the morning sunshine reminds me to be thankful that each day is new.
and that when you feel entirely empty, you can feel entirely full.
a very strange relationship between grief and joy.
where love conquers all."

little edge.

it has recently been brought to my attention that i have a pretty excessive supply of distressed jeans
holes on my knees.
holes on my thighs.
what is it about distressed denim that (i) cannot resist, you ask?
maybe it's that bit of  "b.a" edge.
in which, by no means am i a "b.a". 
but i like edge.
... little edge.

neckcandy & some...

1. Wolfcircus fishbone necklace worn as a choker.
2. Both necklaces from Oak+Fort.
3. Moon & crystal necklace & bracelet from Sarah Mulder Jewelry

The last photo is a bit of a sneaky peeky of a recent shoot I did with Matt for Sarah Mulder Jewlery
Each month she features a blogger on her website under "Style Stories".
I will be featured in June.
I am flattered and very excited to see the finished product of these photos.
And very much looking forward to sharing them with you all.

little white lines .

acting a fool...
coat- thrifted, crop turtle neck- ebay, Oak+Fort trousers, Adidas Superstars, Topshop backpack.

friday i hung with my spectacular friend, kelli.
it's always a treat to get to be around her.
not only is she an amazing singer but she can improv (act) her tush off.

\ may inception \

Oak+Fort white tee, American Apparel mom jeans, thrifted tartan shirt (wrapped around my waist) and Topshop sandals.
Cheap Monday black tee, Zara slip dress, thrifted denim jacket, Topshop reptile print sackpack and Adidas Superstars.

 i am here, blogging, with the last bit of energy from my bones. 
"poor you" is not what i'm searching for.
it's been a long past couple weeks but i feel good about the amount of work that's taken place.
it's really not even that i've been running around, working like a dog.
more so just working everyday. 

i hope you all had a chance to spend some time in the sunshine this week.
it was GLORIOUS!
i caught myself complaining today at work about how i couldn't handle the heat.
i realize now the big mistake in making that statement--- as the next few days call for rain.

if you're a vancouverite you better stop by the wings+horns factory sale on 68 east 1st ave.
it's going till sunday, both days 11am-7pm.
there's a TON of stuff available (and discounts up the 75% off
... your best bet is to pop by in the morn when everything is fresh on the floor. 

come on thru.
