Celeb-inspired

One of my favourite outfits that I see female celebs in is the dress-with-booties look. Kate Moss, Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller always look great when I see them wear this 90's getup.

Inspiration:

My version:

old H&M dress (with pockets, y'all!), DV by Dolce Vita booties
with an old Gap jean jacket


The good thing with this outfit is that you can pretty much wear anything over it -cardigan, leather jacket, blazer...anything!

Are you a fan of the dress-with-booties look?

Extinction event

My obsession with zombies continues. Now, aside from the TV show Walking Dead,  the movie World War Z has a special place in my heart. Having Brad Pitt in it helps a lot....
Forever 21 faux leather jacket, World War Z shirt from Hot Topic, Mossimo jeans from Target, Doc Martens boots





Have a great start to the week, everyone:)

Something old, something new

I had the chance to go to Black Market, which is a well-established vintage store here in Toronto. I remember coming here when I was in university, and it's nice to see shops like this still around.




What I got there:
Skull scarf...coz you can never have enough skull print items, right?

 And I also got this from another store, because of my current backpack obsession:D
 Fjallraven Kanken Classic (Save the Arctic Fox special edition)
I am currently using this, and I highly recommend this bag. It's very well-made and balanced so it's comfortable to carry around. It's also relatively cheap, and waterproof. I now understand the hype.

Any new items, gals and guys?

Butterflies

I know butterflies usually signify spring, but this top is black, so I think it's appropriate for fall/winter too:D

Happy Thursday, everyone:)

Ambivalence

I wore this dress for our family Thanksgiving lunch. It's one of those purchases in which I felt like the dress was great the first time I tried it on, but now, not so sure. I'm hoping it'll grow on me.
Danier jacket, Phillip Lim for Target dress, Topshop shoes

Roasted butternut squash soup I made for the lunch




Have you ever had a purchase whereby you're not too sure if you like it or not?

Creeper, plus new ink

Are you familiar with the online game Minecraft? My boys love playing them! I will be honest...I don't understand the whole thing, but since my kids like it, I thought it was appropriate to wear this shirt. To my two boys, this one's for you!
Minecraft shirt from Hot Topic, jeans from Urban Outfitters, Converse sneakers
I also got a new tattoo from the same place I got my first one back in 2000 (a small one on my back hip). I've been meaning to do this for awhile, and finally got the chance yesterday:)
Here are some pics taken with my phone while I was getting it done....
Jen, my tat artist, was great and very professional!



Final product:) (In case ur wondering, these are my kids' initials.)
Are you a fan of tattoos? My husband used to be hard core into it, but not too much since he met me. I don't know if that's a good thing....

Anyhoo, Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians.

Currently loving #13

My new favourites:)

1) The Wes Anderson Collection by Matt Zoller Seitz
If you're a Wes Anderson fan, this book is a must-have. No words to describe how much I love the movie The Royal Tenenbaums, so getting this was a no-brainer. Pics and essays and all kinds of info about his films. Brilliant intro by the author Michael Chabon.



 2) Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb rollerball
I mentioned this perfume on this post. The scent is just amazing. Will purchase the big bottle next time.

 3) Essence Stays No Matter What mascara
Cheap and does stay on for a long time

 4) Target Up and Up eye makeup remover
Very gentle but does the job

What have you been loving lately?

Out of season

I never did get to wear these shoes during the summer, so I thought while there's still no snow....
Theory shirt, Hot Topic pants, Merona sandals from Target




Do you wear summer shoes during fall/winter?

Lace

Just thought I'd share the outfit I wore to a lovely wedding we attended over the weekend.:)

Danier leather jacket, ASOS dress, Aldo heels
My Victoria Beckham impression...I shouldn't have smiled but I didn't want to scare you.




Happy Monday, y'all:)
