Bad weather + Fever + Cold + Cough = A very sick/ unhappy me. I pretty much decided to try the well-known mantra of "If you look [/dress] good, you feel good." You know what? I think it works! Even though my cough has progressed to mimic the throaty heaves of my grandpa on a bad day (sorry grandpa).. Even though I had these disgusting cherry-flavoured-but-really-tasted-like-bad-medicine-cough-candies in my mouth at nearly all times... I think that putting on a nice outfit really does make you feel better. Moral of the story: when you're feeling down, dress up :)

I picked up this lovely vest in Peru - it was my very last purchase there, as I got it at the airport. (Side Note: I'm so excited to show you guys some of my stuff I got there - I have a lot of colourful accessories from the markets that are so much fun!) Anyways, it's made of baby Alpaca (which, very important, are NOT harmed in the process of the making - I am, in fact, anti-fur when the animals are hurt!). This vest is so much fun and feels so soft and luxurious. Although the $35 is more than I usually spend on clothes, I reasoned it was okay as it is 1) not sold anywhere in Canada, 2) a good souvenior (Alpaca wool/ Alpacas are everywhere in Peru!), and 3) 70% off the original price!
This headband also has a luxurious feel. Tres Gossip Girl. Except from Forever 21. But, you know, close. Ish.

This shot is kind of hilarious. I don't even know what I look like, but it's funny. Any suggestions? Maybe a burgurlar trying to feign innocence.. But failing. Miserably.

Hope you guys have a good weekend! :) Don't forget to put on some lovely clothes and get all dressed up with no where to go! *Sigh* Story of my life. (Actually, despite the bad weather, I went on an extensive bike ride. Definitely felt out of place, but it was awesome! SO many weird looks!)
Okay, I'm off to grab *yet another* cough candy...
