gettin tips

I just dyed the tips of my hair blue. I know what you're thinking. Trennnd...whore?  I know I should really be accepting full trendwhore status on this statement of unoriginality but I will not BECAUSE 1) I was not having a good day today and when Im not having a good day I tend to be impulsive,(these impulses always involve changes to my appearance) and this was the closest/easiest/fastest thing I could get my hands on, and 2) This massive candy-coloured hair trend definitely seems to be on the waning phase, and sometimes this is just the time I like to try things out. I mean if not at the beginning than at the end. Just not the middle. Am I making sense? Anyways I fully expect to see myself on tumblr now. I accept the consequences of my actions...  It'll fade or I'll cut it off, give me a break, sheesh.

As a disclaimer I would like to put it out there that I have done a full head of blue before. Does that give me more credibilty/make me seem less of a scaredy-cat that only does tips because they just cannot commit to a full head? Probably not actually.



My obsession with Japanese culture is ever-growing, expanding and exploding in on itself inside my brain and heart making it hard for me to think or breathe. It's hard for me to think that a dream-like society in which every single person has a unique personal style may actually exist. It's very possible that this is just a stereotype I have come up with while spending a more-than-normal amount of time on Asian streetstyle blogs. ....A little photoshoot of my gurl inspired by the stylish girlz and boyz of Tokyo.

 First look: Community jersey dress, vintage denim vest, hat bought at Public Butter, sweater dress by MM6 Maison Martin Margiela, American Apparel harem pants with a DIY splatter print, Dr. Marten shoes, vintage chain as bracelet.

Second look: Joe Fresh turtleneck, vintage plaid, gold necklace, shorts from Durumi and Chocolate, Hue tights

Third look: headpiece from F21, lace dress (under sweater from H&M, American Apparel sweatshirt (sleeves cut off), vintage shirt/jacket

free yo'self



Prabal Gurung, have you been looking at my blog brrrroo?

Weird, eh?



vogue... wtf

Is anyone else as confused by this editorial in American Vogue's September issue? It looks more like an ad for this season's brands-Vogue-would-like-you-to-wear, rather than an editorial in a fashion magazine's most important issue of the year. It's a bunch of top models wearing one designer from head-to-toe.. and if there is one fashion rule that I am actually not eager to break..  it's avoiding wearing everything from one brand. Not to say anything bad about the designers, We all love Miu Miu, Balenciaga, Marni, Givenchy, Celine, I really adored a lot of these shows... but that's just it, we've already seen the shows, haven't we? There is almost no original styling. The hair, the make-up, and set, are nothing to write home about either. Personally, I want to be inspired when I see fashion editorials. This is just not inspiration.

Try harder next time!


rollin in the ocean, tryna catch your eye

Hey guys, so 2 matters of importance.
1. I start university tomorrow at Ryerson! Yay! Fashion Communication. Words can't describe my excitement so I won't even attempt it...the fact that I had to put together an outfit a full day before pretty much says it all though. That is really unlike me. So yeah..this is what I am wearing, whatcha think? Casual scholarly chic?
2. I have said goodbye to the job I got recently, (frustrations described in my last post) and moved on to a lovely part-time job at a retailer you guys would most definitely know of. I think I will be much better suited here, and there is MUCH more freedom in what you get to wear. Which is all I care about, DUH!

H&M red pants, scarf and crop top, cardigan from The Bay, Frye Shoes, Adidas backpack, vintage pin  and ring, thrifted earrings, and my good old McQueen bracelet



you don't know me and you don't know my style

 It was actually cold enough to wear this outfit today, Hurray! Because all true fashionistas like fall weather better than summer weather, rrright?? Right.
So my new job... they're already trying to tell me what to wear.. as you could probably guess, this is NOT. OKAY. WITH. ME! I would rather be flipping burgers in a stained apron than working at a nice store in an outfit (any outfit) picked out for me by my superiors. I mean, I like their clothes, but do people really want to look like everything they're wearing comes from one store? Outrageous, I say. I've done the whole working at a store and having to wear their clothes head-to-toe thing before, and I can assure you, I will never go back. So I will have to see how this one goes.

Zara pants, thrifted Levi's jacket, brothers shirt (cut), Browns wedges, Michael Kors pink watch, stacked wrings from F21, hat I bought in Soho 3 years ago on a trip to New York.
