Well, my mono relapse is (hopefully) over, and I’m finally back at school! Yay….TONS AND TONS AND TONS OF HOMEWORK! RIGHT BEFORE FINALS! OH MY GOD KILL ME!

Scarf: Target
Belt: Thrifted
Dress: Vintage (eBay)
Shoes: Thrifted

I was also wearing this with a grey cardigan, but it got WAY too hot out for that or the scarf when I was walking home so I left the cardigan in my gym locker.

ALSO, I thought you guys might want to enter the Favourite Spring Dress contest, if you haven’t yet! The lovely Brenda alerted me to it, but sadly I can’t enter it as I’m not a resident of the USA. :( Which totally sucks, because the prize is something I’d very gladly accept! Well, my loss is your gain so if you live in the states… ENTER!! :D



the dress came!

I’m having a lot of luck with eBay stuff arriving this week! My floral print dress arrived today. It looked huge when I took it out of the package, but a belt fixed it all up and I LOVE it.

It’s incredibly lightweight. This is going to get a lot of wear! If it ever stops raining…



bad day

I think my mood and my life are affected a little too much by the weather. On the long weekend, when it was gorgeous out, everything was completely awesome, but now with my return to school and the weather getting bleary everything’s getting pretty blah. I won’t bore you, but I had an awful day! One of my unfortunate events was losing a ring that was really important to me, that my grandpa had given my mother. I always got compliments on it and it was really special, so I really hope it turns up somewhere but that’s not looking likely. Oh well, at least I was miserable and cute? (I love you, Joe Fresh Style dress that was perfect for the weather.)

Necklaces: Thrifted
Belt: Thrifted
Dress: Joe Fresh Style
Tights: UO
Shoes: Greenwich Village from the Shoe Company

Oh wait…one good thing was greeting me when I got home! :)

New bag that I’d been waiting for!! I love it. It’s in great condition, just worn enough to feel loved but not so worn that it’s going to fall apart at any moment. :D You’re going to be seeing this a lot.

I found an adorable vintage dress on eBay for the wedding, and I won it! Downside? I owe my mom $70 I don’t yet have. (oops.) Upside….

It’s beautiful! It’s going to be a bit shorter on me as well, I think, because of my height. None of my stuff from eBay has arrived yet, but when it does I’m going to be in heaven when it comes to dressing for warm weather.



dress shopping!

My most time-consuming Polyvore creation to date! My cousin is getting married this summer (they are an ADORABLE couple) and I am in search of the perfect dress as of right now. The above are my inspiration! I kinda want to break the no-white rule since a perfect white summer dress would be a lovely thing to have an excuse to buy, but I am not sure if that is still taboo or not! Well, I’ll probably get drawn to a colourful one anyway. Oh, and like my mannequin?! I thought she looked a little lonesome headless, and then I even added an arm (erm…ignore the difference in skin tone *cough*) holding an apple! Summery, amirite?! Polyvore, I think I love you…

PS. Yes, I do realize that I could just wear the dress I’m waiting for in the mail from eBay. But…ummm…DRESS SHOPPING!



yay for ebay

No outfit post because I’m sick again today, but at least I won a really cute vintage dress on eBay!! I’d been stalking it for like a week and luckily the price didn’t get scarily high. And the shipping is reasonable, for once, to Canada!

I loooove it, and for once, my boyfriend actually approves! This is going to be my summer dress. :) And it will match my eBayed bag too!

I was listening to Joni Mitchell when figuring out my outfit for today…can you tell? :P

T-shirt: Target
Necklace: My mom’s from when she was in university (whoa!)
Skirt (dress): My friend’s grandma’s hand-me-down
Vest: American Apparel
Shoes: Doc Marten

I also got some new flats today while out on a mission to buy sneakers for running. This makes me feel slightly guilty, since I was set on getting New Balance runners as some of their selection is still made in the USA…and these flats are not. :( But when you’ve got a buy one, get $20 off another pair coupon burning a hole in your pocket and you find some adorable flats, principals can be hard to stick to. I guess I balance it out by buying so much second hand, but I still don’t like supporting sweatshops!

They’re just so comfy and perfect for summer… well, I guess I’m gonna have to get over it this time and at least be happy that I try to avoid slave labor as much as possible otherwise. >_<
