Boxing Day 2013

Image
My eldest sis flew in from Vancouver to celebrate Christmas with us, and it's a tradition that every Boxing Day, we go to a mall (with youngest sis) to do some bargain shopping. We were out of the house bright and early to get a parking space coz it gets cray cray, y'all!




The deals I scored:



We ate at a Hakka restaurant after as a reward:D
Did you score anything over the holidays?

Nod to mod

This dress I wore to our family Christmas dinner reminds me of the 60's.





 Here are some pics taken during the dinner:




Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and Happy Boxing Day:)

I bought this shirt from the Toronto Zoo in the summer. Who doesn't love rhinos, right? (Please visit the iheartrhinos site when you get the chance. Such a great cause.)



I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas:) XOXO

Inlfuence: Trish Summerville

I'm probably the only person on earth who has not seen the movie "Catching Fire", which does seem like a travesty considering how much I love the books and the movie's costume designer Trish Summerville. She is all kinds of awesome. Her work on the character Lisbeth Salander (Girl With Dragon Tattoo) brought the whole "tough, street-kid" look into another level,  and her personal style is something I really admire. Now, if she would only write a style book....




Who's been your style influence lately?

New in...cap

Image
I blogged about wanting a Stussy cap before, and I finally got one...weeeeee!




It's always so satisfying to finally have an item you've been coveting (no matter how simple it is):)

Happy Friday, everyone!

We'll frolic and play the Eskimo way

Image
It's really beginning to look a lot like Christmas....



Happy Hump Day, everyone!

New in (kinda)...cowl

Image
I made this cowl with the Rowan yarn I got this weekend at Romni Wools, which is pretty much like heaven for knitters.

This cowl was super easy to knit, so I was able to squeeze it in, in between projects. It only took a few hours of watching TV yesterday:)


 Finished product:



Here's the simple pattern if you're interested in making it (inspired by this pattern):
(using US15 circular needles)
Cast on 55 stitches.
Knit 1, Purl 1 all the way (Be careful not to twist the stitches when using circular needles.)
Bind off when you reach the width you like. Weave in the ends with a yarn needle.
That's it!

Any new items in your wardrobe, ladies and gents?

Snowed in

Image
Out of the bosom of the Air,       Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken, Over the woodlands brown and bare,       Over the harvest-fields forsaken,             Silent, and soft, and slow             Descends the snow. -Snow-flakes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow




Have a fab weekend, everyone:)




Cold Snap

Is it summer yet? Sigh....anyhoo, I guess it's not the holiday season without some snow and freezing temperature, so I'll try hard not to complain...too much....



Hope the weather is nice wherever you are:)
