I Believe That Life Is a Prize, But To Live Doesn't Mean You're Alive.

First order of business: Leandra Medine is my goddess and The Man Repeller my bible. I dedicate this post to her.

Aritzia sweater, Bongo jeans, American Apparel tank, Forever XXI scarf, scarletbegonia11 @ Etsy necklace, Asos earrings & ring.

Although I will never be as proficient in repulsing the male species through my fashion choices as The Man Repeller, I chose three key "man-repelling" elements to incorporate into today's outfit:
Mehhhhhh, needs more: animal prints / socks-with-sandals / fur / feathers / turbans / drop-crotch pants / clothing that looks like vaginas (and other de-sexifying accessories.)

Also, I have decided to take up crochet & knitting - the perfect hobbies to accompany me when I graduate from man-repeller to spinster. After all, isn't that where this is all going?

She Said "Look Ma, No Hands."

So apparently I have friends in real life who actually check my blog on a regular basis. You guys are awesome. Thanks for getting me off my ass and saving me from being a shitty blogger (that is, shittier than I already am.)

Yesterday I was having a conversation on the bus with my housemate about our dream designer accessories - during this conversation, I asked if I was crazy for actually aspiring to eventually buy handbags that cost at least $2000. To this, she replied something like "No. Ride public transit. You'll save the money soon enough."

My consensus is we're both insane, but that's quite alright.

I Like My Beats Loud, And My Bass Down Low.

American Apparel dress, Aritzia sweater, Hue tights, Forever XXI necklace.

I think this is an outfit very befitting of a Canadian girl in the midst of winter. The only clothing craving I have experienced this winter was for a warm, thick, knitted sweater - the kind that you imagine wearing at the cabin, sitting by the fire and drinking hot cocoa. (This sweater totally fulfilled that longing.)

I love buying something and being completely obsessed with it - for me, this is always the mark of a good purchase. Nothing frees me from the guilt of buying an expensive item more than getting a ridiculous amount of use out of that piece - at least it was money well spent, right?

I'm going to use 2011 to completely overhaul my closet. It's full of cheap shit that I don't even like - getting dressed in the morning is a pain in the ass. I'm getting to the point in my life where I'd much rather have a closet a third of the size of my current closet, filled with well made things that I love, than my current closet (filled with shit that I'm rather apathetic towards.) Anyone else feel that way?
