In the spirit of feeling like I’m in some kind of strange relationship with the Dufferin Mall [which apparently Facebook does not consider a valid relationship option], I decided to enter their outfit styling contest. And yes, as a matter of fact, I took 2 of those photos in the bathroom at work. The lighting is just better in bathrooms.
So in light of losing the Splenda contest where I totally thought I would win because the name alone was so cute, please vote for my “style” on the Dufferin Mall contest, pretty please with a cherry on top! I decided to call it Colour Block Rock because every other name I came up with sounded really stupid. And in light of that, I give you outfit numero uno of this post.
clutch (cough - makeup bag - cough): Zara
All anyone has heard me talking about lately is Mexico.
“I had the best time!”
“It was so much better than I could have imagined.”
“The weather was gorrrrgeous.”
Having my weave sewn in was both a nightmare and a godsend. Washing fake hair every day apparently renders it completely unmanageable but on the other hand, not worrying that your clips are showing and not worrying about actually having to clip them in every day was a relief. And made me look like much less of a princess in the eyes of others [read: the boyfriend].
Overall, I’d say that was $90 well spent. Even if they only lasted me 2 weeks.
top: H&M (not that you can see it)
Not that you can probably tell by looking at them [or by watching me walk in them], these shoes are outrageously comfortable. While I flitted around the store in Mexico, a hip Mexican lady who clearly spoke no English tapped me on the shoulder, pointed to my feet, and gave me a thumbs up.
Clearly, I had to buy them. And when I got my credit card bill post-trip, I was amazed to see that even with the exchange rate, these shoes still only cost me $23.
The drunk phone call I made to my mother to let her know I safely arrived in Mexico? Yeah, that cost me $43. And no, I don’t want to talk about it.
watches: Canadian Watch Imports (large) + Esquire (small)
I often buy articles of clothing without fully thinking through the outfit possibilities. I see something on Pinterest or on someone else’s blog and I think, I could pull that off. Except most of the time, I can’t.
I really need to stop comparing myself to the people around me and on the internet. I need to start being more okay with me.
necklace: Brandy Melville
bracelets: Brandy Melville (bangles) + H&M (coloured stretchy bangles)
And right now, me is really into lime. [Whether or not you can tell by the filter on this photo, that shirt is actually lime.] The back has buttons that go all the way down and if I take the tag off, it can actually be worn either way. I loooooove stuff that can be worn in different ways; it makes me feel like I’m really getting a great ROI [return on investment - thank you for that, advertising career].
I also really like bright coloured bracelets and colour blocking that involves blues, greens, and Barbie pink accent lips. But I suspect this will be short lived as most of my tastes are. I like certain things and I like them a lot until I’m done with them and I start liking something else… a lot.
Right now, it’s cream of broccoli soup. I reeeeeally like cream of broccoli soup.
Know what I don’t like?
Short hair. [On me.]
shoes: Urban Planet
bracelet: Brandy Melville
You’re probably thinking, “hmm.. she looks like a mom.” And I would 100% agree with you because when I walked into work on Monday - post hair extension removal, with a bob that sits roughly around my shoulders - I felt like a frigging soccer mom.
And I’ll tell you, I don’t much like it.
To be honest, I feel especially unfashiony lately. Post-Mexico, the weather has been pretty crappy and post-hair extensions, I feel like everything I wear looks makes me look like a pear because I no longer have a huge extensiony mane to even everything out.
Fuck it, I’m going to buy hair extensions tomorrow. Don’t judge me.
PS. Please vote for meeeeeeee.
