In conclusion, Canadian weather sucks. At least right now. Not when these pictures were taken... (which was awhile ago because, um, my pictures are like a bottle of wine and they get better with age. (Woah! GOOD ONE, Lexy! It just came to me! I'm so witty!) (Hey! I'm actually proud I didn't have to do the whole "[insert thing]" yet again. aw yeah!)) And some dot dot dots to smoothly transition to the set of pictures...
Silly me, I thought that this very day was a "hot day" and I, consequently, resorted to my "hot day outfit." Read: layers of belts, pearls, and a hat as accessories. I was so naive. If only I knew decent clothes + outdoors = amazing day. Oh, I just can't help but cringe at that naivety.
I've basically been cooped up in my house as of late (and I wish I was being dramatic when I say this. But I'm not. It really is true.). I guess the good news is that I've been sketching and sewing and stuff. All of which will EVENTUALLY make it on the blog. (CAPS emphasizes how I'm so very backtracked. Hey now, it's summer!)
But, hey, at least I'm not a dog! Poor thing melting in her natural wool jacket. And, um, my hat?
^Don't worry, we're not ACTUALLY animal abusers during the day. (Only at night.) (kidding...)
Anyways, enough about the weather and dogs and, uh, *cringes, is that all I've really talked about?!* Er, but who cares?! LOOK AT THESE AMAZING SHOES. They're of incredible vintage quality. Like, they're almost so flawless that I'm near the point of being concern. Near. I would have loved them in black and white, but I guess black and brown is quite dandy.
The weather's supposed to stay sauna-esque for the next few days. (Yes, we're back to the weather.) So I'm REALLY hoping that the good ole' saying of "the weather man's always wrong" proves to be true.
But, no complains! (OKAY MAYBE A FEW.) We're young! It's summer! Let's get crunnkkkkk. (Ew, did I just mimic a black eye pea?) (I take the last statement back.)
(Dress - Altered Vintage Dress $10, Skirt - Pacific Mall $7.50, Hat - Value Village $3, Shoes - Vintage from the Kensington Market $30, Socks - AEO, Pink Belt - H&M, Blue Belt - Thrifted, Pearl Cluster - Vintage Belt, Long Pearl Necklace - Thailand.)All in all, this has been a fairly self-indulgent post (and by that, I mean continuous weather rant. but, hey, what's new?). So to finish this bb (this is, I've discovered, the COOL way of saying "baby." I occassionally like to add an additional 'z' - bbz, if you will - for my own personal touch.), here's some questions for YOU!
1. How's the weather? (This is one of those conversation starters in which no one actually utilizes to start the conversation. But we ain't no one and you best let me know!)
2. Who knows about your blog? Just curious.
Me? You want to know who knows about MY blog? Awe, you guys. (By "guys," I mean my imaginary friend that resides in my brain.) Only my sister, who doesn't actually read it. Or so she says. (OH AND HAI SISTER IF YOU'RE READING THIS NOW, YOU'RE A CREEPER! Go walk the dog! And do your chores! And wanna watch Disaster Date tonight?) Other than that, no one who I know in "real" life knows about my blog. I'm sure that people would be supportive of my blog and what not, but... Fashion and creativity is a medium that I'm very passionate about, and I kind of like keeping my blog amongst people whom share that similar passion. It's a nice escape and I feel that, if people knew, the personal element and the appealing escapism of the blog would fade. Also, I go to a really small school and I think that it'd be awkward if everyone knew about it. I cringe at the prospect of people reading my blog in, say, a math class. Outloud. (Ew, I hate when people read what I write outloud. Everything is SO much more awkward outloud. Can I get an ayyymen?)
Although, I've KIND OF decided that after I graduate, I'll go ahead and post it on my Facebook with a sneaky catch line (to be determined)(suggestions?), as I probably won't see half the people again. So, HEYYYY FUTURE EX-PEERS WHO'VE STALKED MY BLOG THIS FAR! Did you find this link on Facebook? Is it creepy that I'm thinking about YOU (yes, you!) a year before you know it? Well, YOU'RE creepy! You've stalked a year's worth of posts! But, I commend you! You must love me/ be really bored! Coolness! Send me a message! Unless you're not my ex-peer! And you didn't find me through Facebook! Yet, you've found me! That's awesome! Also a little creepy! How on earth did you find me! And did you stalk a ton of posts to get here! That's fun times! But you know, friends, followers and stalkers alike, I love you all! (Stalking is illegal.) (WOWZ MAJOR SHOUT OUTZ TODAY! And exclamation points! How EXCITING!)
Er, and anyways, backtracked... AND YOU?! Who knows about YOUR BLOG?
