New York Photo Diary Pt.I


 So I was planning on buying things  that I would be able to also wear to work... but when I saw this cashmere magenta sweater at J.Crew I couldn't say no
 And then there was this lovely equipment shirt at Century 21 (first time ever going there!) which was a crazy discount and I always love their shirts so again, needed it!
i
 If you come to NYC or live here you've probably seen these, I bought them at a random booth on the street, chose the orange because it goes with the color scheme at my work and the silver? just cause :)
 After waking up at 3:20 AM and shopping and walking all day, took a midday nap/exercise and lunch in my bed at the hotel to gain energy to go out again at night.
(I haven't had bread like this in soooo long! It was a delicious roasted veggie sandwich, mm!

P.S don't forget to follow me on twitter and instagram for more constant updates and inspiration :)

First new in video


Right when I start taking photos for the blog, I realize I've lost my USB cable to upload them to my laptop.. BUT I will get it back over the weekend. Anyway, if you follow me on instagram or twitter you know I got some new shoes, I decided to make a little video to show you :)

I'm not sure if I'll do a new-in video again.. I find it kind of useless, why not just take photos? But I want to do more than just Tracy Anderson reviews, anything you'd like to see?

The never ending dilemma


This Alexander McQueen skull print scarf has been in my mind for a couple years now.. It's sort of a dilemma, should I or shouldn't I? The minute I first saw it way back it crossed my mind, but I never really wear scarfs so I rejected the thought. But then, when Lee McQueen died I thought I should get it as a sort of token of my appreciation for him (The day he died I felt so horrible, the strangest thing - it's not like I knew him or anything of the sort, I just couldn't find myself to go on with my day and I left school before my first class even started.) Anyway, I never bought it. I never do really wear scarfs.. But the thing is, I don't have any that I love enough to wear, or think about wearing.. so maybe if I got this one, one that has a sentimental (sort of) value, and is simple yet full of character, maybe I would wear it?

Help?

New in + outfit

My boyfriend was shocked when I went to try these on. I NEVER ever used to wear pants until this summer.. and I always dress up and hate being too casual. So Cargo skinny pants? out of the question.
 But I remember seeing an oufit by The Man Repeller and I really loved how she dressed up a pair just like these so I figured I might as well give it a try.
 Needed some sporty-er and comfortable shoes for walking around disney world, these metalic pink Sperry Top Sider boat shoes are just perfect :)
Purchases : Pants & Necklace - Zara, Boat shoes - The baie (Sperry Top Sider), Top - Simons (Maison Scotch)
Outfit - Top - Maison Scotch, Necklaces - Vintage, Shorts - Zara (old), Watch - Swatch

The denim dress

I have been scouring stores - thrift and regular - for the perfect denim dress litterally ALL summer long.. And, when I was giving up on all hope to meet my match, a potential contestant presented itself.. Hello I thought, I could transform you into exactly what I want! And so I did! And then I accessorized.
Above is the dress before transformation. I added elastics to the side-backs to make it slightly more fitted at the waist, shortened and tapered the hem.. and voila!
 Dress - Thrifted, Necklace - Mr.Dannijo, Watch - Swatch, Clutch - BCBG, Lip color - "A girl about town" by MAC

P.S This is a lesson that many of you probably already know, when thrift shopping you really have to have an open mind about the garments and try to imagine what can be done and how it would look.. maybe it helps to have knowledge in pattern making and fashion design but most of the time all the garments need is to be shortened.

What time is it Mr.wolf?


So, these are my first watches in 10 years.. When I was little my grandfather always used to buy my sister and I swatch watches, you know, the ones with the disney princesses on it and such? So, when my friend who works at swatch was wearing this one in turquoise, I flipped. Yes, I hate the idea of watches - always having the time on your wrist.. why!? but I see this more as an accessory.. and it'll be good to not have to look for my phone whenever I need to know the time. AND its a nice reminder of my grandfather! yay :) So I bought neon yellow and this royal/navy blue color, one for summer, one for winter, but they're both wearable any season. AND they are super cheap, 55$CAD + tax each. Do I sound like a sales person? Sorry. I'm just very excited!
Find them here (light blue)here (red)here (green) (prices are different online than in-store)
P.S I'm wearing a white lace dress by MOON and a necklace my mum got me from vacation

New in!

Sale time is the best time! haha I got these pants, and top at Zara. I got the shoes earlier in the season (not on sale) and haven't worn them yet.. so I figured while I break in the pants (I haven't worn tight pants like this in god knows when -My gym pants don't count because they're stretchy!) I will break in the shoes too.
