Lykke Li - Get Some

dear victoria:

I would love for you to get some more snow, please

dear vancouver, the jig is up

I’ve lived in Vancouver for 17 of my 23 years, and I’ve been here for at least part of every winter. So believe me when I tell you the Vancouver Winter Naivety Complex is bullshit.

It snows at least once a year. That’s not a lot, granted, but it’s a pattern. It’s not like every time you can be surprised for real. And yet every year people panic. SNOW TIRES. SNOW PLOWS. ROAD CLOSURES. HOW WILL I GET TO WORK STOCK UP ON CANNED GOODS I DON’T EVEN HAVE A WINTER COAT etc etc. Listen guys, I know it’s fun to be like, “Can you BELIEVE it’s SNOWING?” but we know it snows. We know. So let’s all just get on board with winter and stop acting like we’ve never seen a snowflake before, because after a while it’s a tired routine.

I think she is really uniquely beautiful, in an unconventional way. I also love her style, and the way that she dresses (or undresses). Finally, I envy her hair length, because this is how long I want my hair to be:


Yesterday I went and saw the Goh Ballet's version of The Nutcracker at the Royal Theater here in Victoria; it was absolutely amazing. I think it has renewed my interest in pursuing adult dance classes. I really wish I had stayed in ballet as a child.

From the last couple of days:

Above I am wearing the Amy tank in black, with the Daniella skirt in Pewter. This skirt was very popular today. Walking through the mall I had men stopping me to tell me how unique it was, and little women feeling me up to see what the fabric was like. Successful day I'd say!

Here I am wearing the Suzi pleated pant with my Lola top in black...yesterday one of my customers told me I looked very Gossip Girl...and then proceeded to talk about edible undies with his co-worker. They were pretty hilarious. Another good day!

These boots are beautiful and so simple:
...however I somehow doubt I would be willing to spend what these beauts are worth. Forever 21 carry some pretty nice knockoffs of this style, too bad they don't come in black:

gpoy: CM

Yesterday I wore my grey Agnes sweater with my new black Denise skirt and army green wool thigh-highs. And of course, when I drove to work, there was no snow...and when I left, I had to leave the car behind because it would be a death trap on the roads in those conditions. Good thing I wore different clothing to work other than this short skirt and thigh highs.

and on that note, I really should make my next appointment some time soon.

warming element

I think that this is a brilliant idea, too bad I don't have a furnace like this!

Fifth day, fourth outfit

Not too much variation from the last outfit, same Fabian chinos with my Agnes grey v-neck sweater and Celine blazer. I really need to get some awesome belts, except (like so much of CM apparel) the CM ones are just so darn expensive and I need to STOP parting with money.

wrap around


I want this on my wall too!

tranquil heart


Fourth day, third outfit

I am wearing the nina scoop top in navy with the fabian chino's in khaki green. Shoes as requested by Kiki, are my new black desert booties by Joy & Peace.

Corey has offered to take photos instead of me continuing to use my mac book, as my silly little camera's timer and exposure refuse to work together, so I promise better looking photos soon!

Third day, Second Outfit

I am wearing the Nina scoop back top in navy stripes, Suzi pleated pants and "vintage" CM blazer.

Second day, First outfit

As I had said, when I began at Club Monaco they gift you an outfit so that you can wear their clothing and better sell it all. Here is the first outfit I was provided, at a grand total of probably over 300 bones.

I am wearing the Daniella skirt in pewter, Celine Flannel blazer and Agnes Sweater with knee socks.

winter shorts and stockings

I figure I can put together a similar outfit with future Club Monaco clothing. I'm working Wednesday and Thursday, so I'll try and have a couple of outfit posts coming your way soon :)

Must grow hair to this length and commit to growing out bangs!

perfect fall looks


I realize it's been a few days without my sporadic news, but its all because of good things I swear! Friday was my undergraduate convocation ceremony, so I am now officially a graduate of the Recreation and Health Education Program with a Bachelor of Arts in Cooperative Education :)

Also, on Wednesday I started my new part-time job at Club Monaco, so that with my second job has quickly been filling my days. I've already walked away with a gifted outfit worth over $300 and have managed to buy quite a few more outfits for under $200, so I will try to do more outfit posts like I did in the past.

With that being said, I hope to return to my more sporadic yet consistent posting soon!
