Boxing Day 2013

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!
Line ups to get in the stores!

North Face Metropolis parka

House of Harlow 1960 Mallory moccasins

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.

Topshop coat and boots, vintage dress from a friend (Please excuse the snow on the coat:P)




 Here are some pics taken during the dinner:




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

#helptherhinos

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.)

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....

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

Happy Friday, everyone!

New in (kinda)...cowl

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:)
I used the Rowan Big Wool yarn, which I love love love. 


 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

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
North Face jacket, Game of Thrones toque, old Express scarf, H&M shirt, LEI jeans, Ugg Australia boots


She wasn't feeling too well, but she still wanted to be in the pic...sigh....


This scarf reminds me of Harry Potter :D

Have a fab weekend, everyone:)

Hope the weather is nice wherever you are:)
