21.8.09

Blast from the past...

... and by "past", I mean the last two weeks.

Good news: I am back! I am home! Home sweet home. Which also means... daily updates! No more spiratic-no-one-even-cares-about posts. I am home, and have no more summer excursions that force me to leave you guys behind! Check here daily, my friends! (Although, come to think of it, school starts in a few weeks. School = uniforms = no personal style = weekly-not-daily-posts? If I have correctly calculated...)
Bad News: I didn't exactly take the most pictures of my outfits, as promised. Sorry! (Babysitting three children can definitely take away time.) But I still did! Ch-ch-check 'em out...

Outfits:

Plane outfit - I always have an affinity to pack all my favourite clothes when I go away. Therefore, plane outfits are always a challenge because a) I have no clothes left to wear, b) I have to be comfy, c) I refuse to go in sweats... Solution? Boyfriend jeans!

(Shirt - thrifted <$1, Belt - Thrifted $1, Necklace - Value Village $3, Pants - Value Village $7, Shoes- Vintage $34)

Day at the Park - Hot day. Went to the park. The fabric of the raspberry shirt is so light and pretty. I love spinning in it.

(Blouse - Winners $5, Belt - Thrifted $1, Dress - Vintage $5, Shoes - Aldo $10)
In fact, the shirt is so lovely, I lent it to my 4-year-old-cousin's "wedding." Here comes the bride...


Family Photo Day (hahaha) - Don't laugh. The cousins of the family were forced to trudge to Walmart in matching pale-and-denim. I kind of stood out in my ensemble... but that's okay! Bonus of family photos: being from an asian family, we are all very little. Yippee for me... at 5'4.5, I am the tallest! Can I get a woot, woot?

(Shirt - H&M $12, Belt - Thrifted $1, Jeans - Urban Behaviour $20-ish, Jewellry - Assortment)

I-Forget-What-I-Did-Today-Outfit - My new favourite thing is combining hard/soft.. Hard leath-ah (Stella reference to Project Runway Season 5, yo!) and creme sequins today..

(Vest - Peru $17, Sequin Shirt - H&M $10, Jeans - Value Village $7, Belt - Thrifted $1, Jewellry - Assortment)

Shopping! - My cousins (whom are my age, not my little cousins. Just, you know, FYI.) and I love shopping! West Edmonton mall = huge mall. It's pretty much a yearly ritual. Everone was like "Okay, make sure you don't wear too much because we need time to shop." Here's my simple outfit..

(Vest - Peru $17, Yellow cardigan - Old Navy $4, Tank Top - Mum, Belt - Steve Madden $Gift, Skirt - thrifted <$1, Tights - H&M $5, Purse - Value Village $4)

Plane Outfit Home
- Bye, bye Alberta!

(Blazer - Thrifted $7, Zebra Tank - F21 $12, Belt - Dad's, Violet Shorts - Aritzia $15)

All in all, Alberta was super fun, as it always is! It's so much fun to hang out with my family. I actually miss the chaos, now that I'm home. How have your summer's been?

O.K. SO I love the Day and the Park outfit. The Shopping! outfit. The Plane Outfit Home outfit. They are so alive and colorful! Full of life! Thank you for being so kind on your last post! I love you too and your blog! I am guessing you get a lot of looks from people when you step out of the house so colorful and different?! I do...all the time...and I get comments! LOL. Can't wait for all your posts! I don't know what I am going to do when school arrives about the posting. I am going to try my best but I have no idea! I'm kind of nervous about that! I will figure it out.
check out my trendy blog!
