Wore the outfit below to my friend's Father's Day BBQ (my parents were gone on vacation). I wore an altered version of the mommy jeans from last post:
Dynamite blazer. American Apparel Afrika Print Big Pocket Tank. Ring from flea market. Thrifted DIY cutoff shorts.H&M dotted tights. Jeffrey Campbell "Clinic" wedges.
Good things about this past week:
--Finally received my Jeffrey Campbell Clinics!
--My parents have been on vacay, leaving me alone in my house for a week. Love these times.
--The G20 summit has induced a "casual-dress" code at work; basically means I have worn jeans to work everyday this week. LOVE.
--It's the World Cup people! I'm cheering on Brazil (I lived there when I was younger.) I'm so anxious about the Brazil-Portugal game on Friday.
--There was an earthquake today. IN CANADA. This stuff doesn't happen to us. And earthquakes are kinda a big here.
--Obsessed with the song from the title of this post - "One Love" by Trey Songz. Had it on repeat on bus to work today, but luckily my iPod died and allowed me to regain my sanity. Although I may have it on repeat as I write this post...
Anyways, working on spicing up the shorts in this post. Once again, stay tuned...
Went to my first wedding EVER this weekend! I wore my prom dress, but an altered version. Before - at prom:
Custom made & designed dress.
I seriously hate everything about this picture (and how I looked at Prom). Oh well, it's all in the (kinda-distant) past now.
After - at the wedding:
Got the dress altered to have a bubble hem - eons cuter, no?
Me with my uber-fashionable mother. Check out the back:
It's impossible to capture in photos but the way the dress moves and hangs is gorgeous.
The wedding was gorgeous, had a good time. I just need to put it out there however that Americans REALLY seem to love the Electric Slide. I always just thought it was used as a plot device in movies - but no, apparently it actualy happens in real life. Must learn it in time for my next wedding,
So a couple weeks ago, I was announced as the winner of this giveaway at Raez's blog, CHEAP THRILLS! (If you haven't checked out her blog, do it now. She's freshly turned seventeen and bursting with talent and has the most fantastic style. Not to mention she's Canadian.)
I had gone away for the weekend to visit some friends up where I go to school, and came back home to find my gift in the mailbox! The booty:
Student. 23 years old. Born on Jesus' birthday. From Toronto and currently studying at an eastern Ontario university known for its academics, partying hard & lighting the occasional car on fire. Likes brains (it's what she studies in school, after all) but might love shoes even more. Also pretty tall (5'10) but refuses to let anyone make her feel bad for wearing heels. Current Galaxy S3 aficionado & Nikon DSLR owner.
But mostly just a normal (kind of loud) girl with quite a few quirks who is overwhelmed and flattered that you would read her blog. Thanks for stopping by.
