Good as Gold

Went thrifting today and came back with a whole bunch of stuff, one of those being this intense gold-on-black belt motif shirt. It reminded me of Hermes so I thought that riding boots would be quite fitting.

syd tha kyd

Just a little post about my love, Syd. This is strictly a fashion blog so I will try to focus on her killer style. She has great hair, she wears lighters as necklaces and she can rock a white tee and a pair of headphones like it ain't nobody's business. And what is it about a girl in a toque? Oh yeah, and I've seen her on a skateboard a couple of times too which is just so hot. (a skateboard counts as an accessory right?)

Going Dotty

My outfit today: a vintage dress that I originally purchased for a 20's flapper girl costume. I shortened the hemline quite a bit which made it much more modern. I surprisely opted to keep the shoulder pads in, i like the shape they give the dress. All the watches are vintage, the leather bow is from American Apparel. Yellow Doc Marten boots and OPI Shatter nail polish over dark red.


DIY: jean bleaching & egg dying

It's a do-it-yourself themed Easter this year. I bleached my jeans from Joe Fresh (awesomely cheap Canadian brand designed by Joseph Mimran) with this fabulous Dries Van Noten pair in mind. They did not turn out exactly like them but that was to be expected and I am quite happy with the result. The lovely ocean-blue egg I randomly dyed with the deep purple water left over from my steamed organic multi-coloured carrots. (why it turned it blue is a complete mystery)

Joe Fresh jeans, AA mesh tee and bandeau, dollhouse shoes, vintage scarf worn as turban, vintage charm bracelet (grandma's), ring unknown, nails copper OPI (excuse the chipping)

Talent Alert: Caterina Gatta

What do you get when you mix supercool graphic prints, colours that make you want to pee your pants, and well-thought-out, sleek, modern design? You get CATERINA GATTA, of course!
Her clothing is a perfect example of my favourite kind of clothing.. which would be the kind that pushes the limit just enough so that you will definitely catch the approving/jealous eye of other fashionistas passing by, but also lets you avoid getting lunatic-stares from everyone else. In other words, her clothes make a statement but they are utterly wearable for everyday.
Oh yeah, she is also the perfect example of my favourite kind of recycling! She makes her clothes from leftover bolts of fabrics from designers like Yves Saint Laurent and Valentino from the 80's and 90's. I ask you, what more could you want?
