Deceitful

I mentioned in my last post that I've never been to a music festival before. Well, that hasn't stopped me from wearing this H&M tank. I think I really do wear this tank too much in the summer and I kinda wish I got a spare.


Have you gone to Coachella?

Beaded out

Just a basic "pre-summer/not really spring but sometimes it rains" outfit but adding these shoes to add some spice to the outfit:D

These shoes always remind me of music festivals...although I've never been to one....

In memoriam: Kate Spade

Image
It is rare that a famous person's death would affect me personally, but this was what happened when I heard that Kate Spade had passed away on Tuesday, June 5th/2018. What a truly sad day for the fashion world. I was shocked, much like most people. I never knew she suffered from depression.

For this post, I thought I'd share the story of my one and only Kate Spade bag.

The Kate Spade black nylon tote was the first designer bag I had ever owned. I was a poor student when I bought it at Holt Renfrew. I couldn't afford it, but I didn't care. I just remembered clutching the Holt paper bag while going home on the subway, with my precious inside. I was so ecstatic!

I loved this tote, and for a long time was the only thing I was using. It was bag for school, when going out, at formal occasions, my first real job after university...it was a constant companion.

You would think after all these years that it would be battered up, but it still looks as good as I did when I bought …

Is it, really?

Oh spring...why do you tease us with summer-like hot days, and then grey and rainy days after? As I read on Twitter recently, "Mother Nature, you're drunk. Go home."

This was taken on a day that it was super hot AND rainy...

I saw on the news it snowed in Newfoundland the other day, so I shouldn't really complain.

Inspiration: William Eggleston

"Eggleton's focus on a world of images which is associated with ordinary American life, with which he has a kind of love-hate relationship and of which various groups of works show perpetual variations, results in our immediately associating certain objects with his work. The combination of his special way of looking at things and his specific composition gives rise to an individual visual language whose recurring elements, or those developed on this basis, create a style which, via this recognition, reveals Eggleston as the originator of these images."
