Father forgive me, for I have sinned.

 Aldo rain boots. Urban Outfitters BDG shirt. Thrifted blazer. American Apparel leggings & sheer circle scarf (borrowed from Darcy). H&M necklace. Ring from flea market.

Yesterday, I had an Anatomy presentation in which I played a nun. I know what you're thinking, how could those things possibly relate? Well I did a presentation on Alzheimer's, and we got a lot of information from this study, which is actually quite cool.

 Me as a nun:

The AA scarf actually made quite a good habit (the head scarf nuns wear), if I do say so myself. Unfortunately it's not mine, I borrowed it from Darcy. Speaking of Darcy, she's started a food blog, The Wind Up Bird Wonderland. You should check it out =)

For a sample of her cooking, here's a delicious omelette that she made for me this weekend:

Also, yesterday went to AA and picked up a black Micro-Mesh Bodysuit, as well as the Long-Sleeve Floral Lace one - despite not having the money to do so. I'm excited to wear them - and you'll be the first to see when I do.

I Change Shapes Just To Hide In This Place, But I'm Still An Animal

Wore this out clubbing this weekend with my friends:

Vero Moda Dress. Forever XXI belt. Hue tights. Earrings & Bracelet from local boutique.

In the pictures, I had pinned this dress up to make more of a "bubble" hem. Short? A little. But I wanted to be all Fearless!Fashion. But by the time I was at the club, actively dancing... I had to take those pins out. A short hem when you're dancing on top of speakers is a bit of a different story.

Oh Wow. Lovely.

Last Friday, my housemates & I hosted a "Skins" inspired blacklight party. I wore the shredded t-shirt that I mentioned ages ago I would make. Pictures below:

American Apparel socks, leggings and belt. Aldo necklace. DIY Shredded Hanes Tee.

The party was frigging amazing. Blacklights honestly automatically make anything about ten times better. The photos above were taken with disposable cameras, and I love the look of them. Looking at film photos kind of makes me want to never use a digital camera again (if only they weren't so convenient!)

Better Get Your Right Hand Hi

Aritzia TNA touque. American Apparel leggings & socks. Forever 21 belt. Urban Oufitters BDG T-Shirt. Thrifted flannel shirt.

So I am incredibly lazy - took these photos quite a while ago but never got around to posting. About the flannel: I have only just recently discovered the magical wonderland that is Value Village. THE PLACE IS AMAZING. Got this shirt there, and on the day this picture was taken, went vintage shopping. Have also worn several variations of this outfit since then.

The Luck of the Irish

Fabulous baked goods made in honour of this glorious occasion:

(made by my lovelies Brianne & Boots)

As a University student, I have to say that there is a direct correlation between enthusiasm for an event, and how drunk it allows you to get.
Needless to say, the enthusiasm for St. Patty's was through the roof today on campus.

Have a lovely St. Patrick's!

Left, Right, Left, We All Fall Down.


Loving this entire look - the mix of cabin sweater and military vest, plus the waist belt and men's watch - love, love, love.

Just to Stay in the Corner of Your Heart.

Outfit Post for 2010.03.11.
(I thought I'd start giving them real names instead of systematically naming them, but since I'm bad with names I'm warning you in advance that they will likely all be song lyrics.)

 American Apparel Headband & Afrika Pocket Frock (worn as shirt). Dish jeans. Converse Shoes. Lola's Room blazer. H&M necklace. Guess? bracelet. 

So I know my eyebrows are incredibly unruly, but I kind of like it. Also, this American Apparel dress is by far one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe, but I only ever wear it clubbing. I thought I'd try to adapt it for day wear.

I'm supposed to studying for my Anatomy practical tomorrow morning, but it feels so useless - it's so hard to study theory for a practical, because no matter how well you know the theory there's a very large chance it won't translate over to real life. 

I just need it to be St. Patty's; I need midterms to finally be OVER.

Outfit [2010.03.06]

An outfit I wore on Reading Week but was too lazy to post until now.

American Apparel Belt & Leggings. Shellys Boots. Dress, secondhand from Mom.

Went home for reading week with only casual clothing - I know, big mistake. Had to borrow this dress from my Mom, and she just gave it to me.

I love when that happens.

A Single Man, I Love You

 Last Friday I saw New York, I Love You w. Darcy:

I liked it. I didn't love it, but I also didn't expect to. But it was an enjoyable movie with its fair share of heartwarming moments. I have to say that my favourite story was probably the Anton Yelchin & Olivia Thirby "Make-A-Wish" story; I also really enjoyed the Shu Qi "Painter" story.

(Also Maggie Q is flawless and Drea de Matteo has an amazing body, so jealous.)

Boots mentioned that NY,ILU made really good use of the city (much better than Paris) and I agree completely. However one of the things that really bothered me about NY,ILU was the messy interconnection of the stories. I understand that they didn't take the Paris path of completely separate stories, but in my opinion they didn't do a good job of connecting them, it was almost... sloppy in my opinion I guess.

I felt that they way they connected the stories was lazy - some had a link, some didn't, and they were all pulled together by the woman with the camera, like the hub in a wheel. To me, interconnected stories should take more of a web format - it rings truer to life.

Last night, Darcy, Boots and I saw A Single Man at the local indie theatre:

Watching the trailer after having seen the movie is giving me chills. This movie was absolutely stunning. When I watching it, I almost felt like I was watching a moving painting - so much though was put into every detail of this movie, it was incredible.

One of my favourite features of the movie was the way that the colours of the world would become more vibrant every time George (Colin Firth) felt emotional - whether it was happiness, lust, sadness, etc. It wasn't over the top though, which was great. You can witness it a bit in the clip below:

This movie was amazing. If you have the chance, watch it.

Outfit [2010.03.02]

Reading Week was officially over, as of yesterday.
What I wore my first day back:

French Connection top. Urban Outfitters cardigan. American Apparel belt. Dish jeans. "Peace Sign" necklace from the West Indies.

Very casual and toned down, which was a good decision seeing as how I spent the entire day running between class and the library. Had an incredibly hard Molecular Biology midterm last night, Organic Chemistry is up tonight. Wish me luck! <3

Fuck Yes, Team Canada!

This was very close to my expression last night after the hockey game:

Boots, Darcy and I went to watch the Olympic game at a local pub last night - we travelled to about 5 places before we found a pub that would let us in to watch the game, everywhere was so full. But what can I say, Canadians love their hockey!

Some photos:


It was so much fun, I'm glad I skipped out on the library for it (even though I had a midterm today, and another tomorrow.) It was fun being there with hockey fans of all ages (old men, little kids and everything in between), and it was nice to feel patriotic. Us Canadians, we don't spend enough time being proud of our nation. Instead, we almost run away from our identity - everyone here defines themselves by where they came from, not who we are. I'm glad I got the chance to bond with strangers and come together as a country in the name of hockey.
