buster baxter went away, but he came back.

Here's something for you guys to know: I have the tendency to get VERY backtracked whilst blogging. I don't even plan on it. It just HAPPENS. This is somewhat relevant for "you guys to know" as, sigh, it has happened: I'm backtracked. This isn't really a big deal, except for the fact that these pictures are incredibly misleading. Why? 1) I'm wearing clothes clothes. 2) I'm outdoors. This only means one thing... they were taken when STEPPING OUTSIDE WASN'T LIKE A SAUNA. You have NO idea how envious I am of, um, myself. Just relaxing there. Outside. Without the heat enveloping me like, urm, [insert eloquent simile here.]

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?


Ali said...

I was going to make the same question in my next post, hehe! My whole family pretty much knows. My mom takes pictures, my dad reads, my dad's parents read, my mom's parents read, various aunts and uncles.. :) not much of a sideline activity now, hehe.

I looove your dog, so cute. ; w; Perfect accessory, right? 8D Especially with his wittle hat awesshdfds /mushes up

But really, I like your blue/white combo.. so pretty. The skirt is neat, too. :D I'd gladly steal it from you.

Jen said...

i love love love love love that shirt! and ugh the heat, i know exactly what you mean. i went outside for a photoshoot yesterday and i'm pretty sure it looked like i took a shower by the time i was done. my face was dripping sweat. delicious, right? haha

my whole family knows about my blog as well as my closets friends. i try not to tell people about it but they always find out. ahhh

Jonesy said...

Such cute photos! I love your dog : )


Mel said...

Haha Lexy you're hilarious! That line about your pictures being like a bottle wine was pretty funny. Your pictures are stunning, it's like a magazine photoshoot (seriously!). I love your brown and black shoes, they're super awesome, especially with the socks! Sorry your weather sucks so much :( Let's see, the weather here is FOGGY and GRAY, aka NORMAL. And I think only one of my best friends knows about my blog (though paranoia leads me to believe all my family members and friends are stalking my blog, which would be really scary).

Ally said...

My bestfriend, My boyfriend knows but isnt allowed to read.
Hardly anyone really.

Lemondrop Marie said...

The pictures turned out so well- love the abundance of pearls in the sunshine. It is steamy and hot here, I can't roll around in grass outside after 10 am! Only a few of my friends and family know about my blog...those who have similar interests in clothes, vintage, and various other random bits.

Mimi Mathews said...

I really like your outfit, and the dog is adorable ! Thanks for the sweet comment , and what country do you live in?

Ugh! We're going though a heat wave now, and honestly I've gotten used to it! Who knows about my blog? Almost no one :( Sad thing actually. Wanna follow it? it'd mean a lot (:

<3 Mimi,

Shelby said...

haha you are like a walking teen vogue photo editorial! i just love your style.

only my bf knows about my blog. i think everyone else would think i am a vain narcisist or something like that.

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

I LOVEEEEEEEEEEE your outfit. It's so amazing. Gorgeous. Very pretty.

I watch Arthur every morning. Watched that episode Monday I think. I'm almost 19. :D

My close friend, my parents, my relatives because my parents told them, and some work people because my parents tell everyone. Haha.

Gizelle | Vanilla Ice Cream said...

you have such a quirky style (duh, quirky explosion right?hehehehe) and seriously, i am so jealous of you and your sister rolling around on the grass..would love to do that here, if only the grass here are green and clean enough to roll around in...

hmmm, who knows about my blog??? definitely not my co-workers! haha!

♥ vanilla ice cream ♥

Keepitrockkinn said...

Lets seee, welll, my blog partner and most of my friends know about my blog. It gets posted to my facebook to the few friends that like to read it so I guess they know about it too. I'm sure there are a few secret creepers, aha. But, like you, I don't really advertise it because it is also my creative outlet.

Your outfit rocks btw.


LyddieGal said...

Love those shoes. and the jumping photo, perfecting timing!

I love that your hot day outfit involved a hat and long sleeves. Haha.

Hope you get caught up someday!

Chic on the Cheap

roxanne said...

i love how all of your posts seem as if they were written in one rambling burst, haha. and i was admiring your shoes hardcore until i scrolled down and learned that they're vintage! gutted.

the weather here is NUTS here too, record-breaking heat wave and all that.. it's really problematic.

kyki said...

Sigh. I suppose you're right about the shoes thing. I just hate feeling like a freak with oversized feet! Haha.

SPEAKINGOFFEETOMGILOVEYOURSHOES. <3 Just sayin'. I wish I lived near a vintage store. ANY vintage store. I NEED CLOTHES THAT ARE VINTAGE RAWR. (Small town shopping blows.)

I understand your weather rant! Wow, Canadian weather is stupid. It legitimately POURED for like thirty seconds today, then was completely sunny and like plus thirty. WTF GLOBAL WARMING. I'd rather it rain than be bisteringly hot, though.

Pleeaassseee update more. Because. Well. I love your blog. :)

And thanks for taking the time to check out/comment lil ol' me! On my lil ol' blog! :D

- xo, kyki ♥


rachelfabiano and kortneycooper said...

first off, those shoes you have there are a miracle. second off, it is weirdly perfect weather in idaho right now. this is the one month of warmth for the year. aaand who reads my blog? uhm my friend who writes with me and only a few other roomates/friends they dont get the fashion things so they are always just like WHERe ever do you find this stuff and laugh about it. being misunderstood can be refreshing though.

love that frilly skirt/shorts whatever it is. it is insanely cute.

p.s. to all those complaining about heat waves in the northern hemisphere...what is a heat wave to you?


♥ M i m i said...

you know you remind me of this girl i know. you have the exact same writing as her. EXACT. SAME. but it's cool cuz she's awesome. and you're awesome too.

i love your outfit. that fuzzy hat is adorable! i'd totes would not have thought to pair it up with that dress, but you've really inspired me. i think i need to think outside the box soon cuz i've been majorly confused as to what to wear. i'm out of ideas, and i hate wearing the same outfit twice in the same year as weird as it sounds. = =

it's been super hot lately! gaaah actually it's only been hot for 2 days but it feels like a whole month! i can't even sleep. it was like freaking cold a few days ago and now it's sweltering. yelps it's global warming. that guy in the video was right! that guy who wasn't elected president so he decided to make a film about climate change! you know! that /guy/!

did you refer to Arthur in this post title?
cuz i don't think he went back to Elmwood or whatever. he just kept travelling and ditched all his furry friends and left for adventure, glamour, and yummy food. like that backstabbing bitch from the hills. no the other one.

i'm not too keen on friendship lately. feeling as tho i don't close friends at all so don't mind my lamenting.



i think ppl who follows my twitter knows my blog. but not many RL ppl i know follow my twitter. :S i don't put it on facebook cuz i don't want EVERYBODY at school knowing. a few select friends (umm like 2 girls) know about my blog but only bc they started one themselves.

i'm outie.

ps. if blogger has an error and deletes all this awesome shizz i typed, i will be MAD.

"did you refer to Arthur* in this post title?

*I was referring to the show "Arthur".

**I was referring to Buster Baxter the bunny dude.

Veronica Anita said...

Abi-Anne said...

You are so cute in your writing style. And your outfit is adorable! I love that blue dress.
My older sister knows about my blog. Only because she is my flatmate, and she follows me around and takes my photos. It's a relatively new blog so I'm trying to keep it underwraps till I can maintain it for an extended period.

Thanks for visiting by the way ;)


Leah said...

Hahaha! Your pictures like wine get better with age... that's so original Lexy.

How's the weather? It's sunny in the mornings and rainy in the afternoons. And humid all day. That's so typical in the tropics and I have to live with that.

Who knows about my blog? My family and my facebook friends.

BTW, your vintage shoes are awesome. I love it. xoxo

Anonymous said...

i love the outfits, as always. :) keep it up and come back soon.

Agathe said...

Heyy ! That is SO funny !! I was visiting your blog, and I saw that we renamed our archive category just the same °_O !!! I changed mine last week for Blast from the past too ! ;)

Mrs. April said...

Hot damn, I'm lovin that outfit. The pearls are awesome. And your dog is a babe.

And as far as I'm aware, no one knows about my blog. NO ONE... dramatic. Not that there's anything interesting anyways.

April said...

totally feel ya about the weather....it sucks. :(

but you look fab and it reminds of better days, when there wasn't a week-long heat advisory :( haha

Adiel said...

I can't get over how much fun you seem to be having in your photos. I love it! :)

Faye Tiffany said...

I love your blog :) Great outfit too :)

No one knows about my blog (I hope anayway) I don't know why I don't want people to find it, I just don't, I made up my name on my blog just to make sure that people don't find it (which makes me feel like a fraud but oh well and there are links to my real name :)


Audrey Allure said...

Great pictures, and the weather here has been HOT too - I've been trying to be in AC as much as possible haha, although hopefully it might rain & cool down a bit this weekend. And no idea who knows about my blog except for some other bloggers haha.

Gets said...

Love the shoes!! I want them. Seriously. ): And the pearls too, I have a terrible weakness for pearls.

Haha I love your outfits yknow, the matching of different pieces is soo original!

And yeah, I don't tell anyone about my blog too! :O I thought I was the only one, but yay, I have company -points up at comments- haha. Idk, its like, people can be kinda judgmental at times, and my ego is big but easily cut down. Haha honestly glad I'm not the only one either ways! :D

And thanks lots for your comment dear, I left an award for you at my blog! :D Go check it out <3 &I'm following you too loves!



Cafe Fashionista said...

I literally fall in love with you more and more with each of your posts, Lexy. You are just incredibly adorable; and I cannot get enough of your style.

First of all...how's the weather? Ohmigosh I dread this question! A boy came up to me and commented on the weather once and I almost burst out laughing. This time I'll simply keep it brief...far too hot for my liking. When's fall? :P

As for my blog...anyone who wants to know about Cafe Fashionista, knows. I don't go around telling people about it unless it comes up. But, when it does come up, I'll mention it. You have to be proud of your blog, regardless of how quirky or off-the-wall it is. If someone doesn't like it, tough on them; at least you know it rocks! :P

Elizabeth Faraday said...

love the pictures! the shoes are insanely gorgeous, i want them so badly!

oh and yeah...i'm with you, no one knows about my blog AT ALL! hahaha like none of my friends or anything haha!

nice post! following you now!

kyki said...

I know what you mean about the song. At first, I hated it, but then, after hearing it every single time I turned on the tv/radio/a friend's stereo/iPod, I grew to like it. (Thankfully, this has not yet happened with Justin Bieber. Phew. I'd die.) And it's not like I have a hate-on for Katy or anything, but I'm not her biggest fan, either. It's just that the song is so...I dunno, "catchy" doesn't really define it. The words are also kinda hard to keep in your head. I just have the chorus and those weird "ohhohohohohs" running through my brain continually. ARGH. Yet...I love it. <3

Men in pink often appeal to me. Unless they're blond, in which case it's disgusting. :) Dark skinned boy + pink = delishhh.

- xo, kyki ♥

Owl said...

I love the outfit! The shorts are so cute!

My parents know about my blog. I think... besides them, nobody I actually know. I feel like that would be embarrassing. :(

Followed. ;)


emily viveur said...

love the top, and the layered pearls, and the socks with heels...heck, just everything.
anyways, the weather is boiling hot and a few people know about my blog (mom, sister, boyfriend, and a few close friends) but that's about it.
