14.6.10

let's play concentration. you'll go first and i'll go second.

I guess you could say it was a typical Monday. Woke up at six am because, well, just because. Studied for a few hours. Wrote an exam. "An exam," being my final exam. Thus marking summer. And ate some reeses pieces blizzard and downloaded five hours worth of tunes.

You know, typical.

Oh, and somewhere along this not-so monumental day (UM HELLOOO SUMMER IS HERE), I decided to creep myself. AKA stalk some of my photobooth pictures. I had to go through thousands, cuz I'm so narcissistic. Jokes. I have like fifty photos from the last two years on there. I should probably take advantage of the super rad camera feature more, I reckon. Anyways, the whole point of this story is HOW COULD I NOT HAVE POSTED THESE VERY PHOTOS?!?!?!?! WOWZA...




AHHH! Do you see the joyous look that is present in all my pictures?! A Rodarte for Target dress!


You see, Canada is a silly country. We're a little behind. Like, we CANNOT watch Kell on Earth, it costs an additional $92 to SHIP a dress form from the States ($92! I can buy 13 blazers with that! Or 26 on a Value Village 50% off sale! I didn't buy the damn dress form!), annnd we don't have a Target!
Rodarte for Target? No Target? Predicament? I THINK YES. Solution? Well...

... THE FABULOUS ALISHA FROM SIX-TWENTYTWO-ONINE. (The caps were NECESSARY to emphasize her FABULOUSNESS.) I don't even think I have to say this, but I will anyways: She. Is. The. Sweetest. CHECK OUT HER BLOG. Thanks gurl! The next time you'll see this dress is, actually, on my sister in the next and final series of the Forest Nymph shoot. She loved it! (Almost dangerously. I sensed her desire to pry the dress from my very own nubby hands.)

THANKS AGAIN.

And in somewhat related fashion (fashion, ha-ha), here's some more photobooth narcissism/ quick outfit post...

Really average outfit. Hence really lame photos. Normally I love bright colours from summer (and winter. And rain. And fall. And spring.), but a lazy Sunday and rainy weather was just calling for a subdued outfit.

But sometimes subdued outfits make it fun to wear prints fearlessly. Also makes me feel rather chilled and 90s and what not and why am I always referring to the 90s?

STORY TIME:
One of the BEST COMPLIMENTS. EVER.
Old Lady (comes up from behind with massive shopping cart of Value Village goods) (Please imagine an adorable old lady with equally adorable voice alongside): Oh, honey! Now, you've just GOT to tell me. Did you... PAINT those flowers on those legs?!!?! [ed note: !!!!!!!HAHHAHA!!!!] Or are they PANTY HOSE?
Me: Hahahhahaaha. Nah, they're tights!
Old Lady: Oh, well, you can never tell with these things! Where did you get them?
Me: H&M blah blah blah insert rambles.
Old Lady: Wow! They're just LOVELY. Oh, you're so young! You should be wearing this things! Hahah. (Leaves)
Me (silently): PAINT MY LEGS?!?! Can you please be my grandma?!?!?! NOW?!?!
THE END.

(Zebra Blouse - Thrifted <$1, Shorts - Value Village $3, Tights - H&M, Bangles - Assorted, Hat - Vintage $3, Shoes - Vintage)
I was also wearing this um KIND OF AMAZING VINTAGE CLONKIN SHOES. They are uber rad. Photobooth doesn't give it justice so, I'm not even going to try. THEY DESERVE PROPER RECOGNITION. So that concludes this.

OH. Wait. ONE MORE THING.

GOING TO DO A VLOG for da bloggerversary. Took extrenuous amounts of efforts to think of a rhyme (reference to pic-cha). Consequently, I suggest you ask me some questions. You know, unless you want me to ramble on high school drama and boyzzzz and zomg who broke up wit whoz < / 3333. (Just kidding. I have no knowledge regarding high school gossip. Awe MAAAN. NOW I'LL NEVER BE COOL.) But really. Ask me ANYTHING. Be creative!
(Doesn't have to be fashion related. I mean, go ahead, ask me to dish the dramzzz. Gossip Girl style, obvz. It's how I roll...)

Yeeeeeah...
:)

Happy Summer if it's, you know, summer!

:)

(Additional smiley face emphasizes HAPPINESS OF SUMMER.)

:) omg awesome outfits. I'm sorry you don't have a Target over there in Canada. I live in that place!

Roz said...

That piece was one of my favourite from the rodarte for target collection, it reminds me very much of a 1930's style dress for lounging around the house in!
Love the floral tights too.

Thanks for the comment, and I love all the outfits in Changeling! So I take that as a big compliment..
And I think Angelina Jolie is so suite to twenties style clothing.

What is the one thing you regret ever doing?

What is your favorite item from your closet?

What is the most amount of money you have spent on a piece of clothing, what was it?

Tori said...

Cutee! That is crazy that you don't have a Target there!
Question:
If you could only see black and white and one other color for the rest of your life, what color would you choose to see?
:D
