The everyday basics: Never not wearing my Submariner, that ring on my middle finger, and my Clubmasters. Oh and red lipstick. You can’t forget the red lipstick.

You may have noticed that I have this weird obsession with the 1950s and ’60s, so when we walked into this diner, I was incredibly delighted! 

If you’re in Toronto, go visit George Street Diner. They are so wonderful and friendly. I love it there! The diner has such good vibes.

My Fashion Truth: I play dress-up as often as possible because we should all try to fit more fun into our days! And the twirlier a skirt, the more fun I have.

I feel like I should be drag racing with my greaser buddies and then going for milkshakes at the drive-in. I would have loved to live in that time, except for the rampant sexism and other terrible, terrible things. But man, they sure did know how to dress.

Slowly transitioning into fall. I saw trees with fall colours yesterday and I usually love that, but after last winter, I’m terrified of what’s to come.

This skirt is going to be worn a lot this fall.

Anonymous asked: Have you ever made a post on what you would consider wardrobe essentials?

Click here for a post on what I consider wardrobe essentials

A few items I list are:

  • Gingham collared shirt
  • Crisp collared white dress shirt
  • Striped long-sleeved t-shirt
  • Two denim shirts: one light washed and one dark
  • Two mid-length a-line skirts in neutral colours: one light and one dark
  • Black pumps
  • Three pairs of skinny jeans: one dark, one medium wash, and one distressed
  • A black pair of skinny pants
  • A neutral, fitted boyfriend blazer (I use my grey ones most)
  • A few bold statement necklaces will go a long way

And to that list I would like to add (relevant for fall):

  • Classic trench coat
  • A badass leather jacket
  • A comfy pair of sneakers that go with everything (Chucks or Keds or Toms)
  • A few cozy cable knit sweaters
  • Little black dress

New day, new scarf. But pretty much everything else is the same: leather jacket, red lipstick, Clubmasters.

I saw a tartan scarf at Zara, but instead of buying it for $35-ish, I made one for myself with about $9 in materials. I like this new sewing skilled I acquired! (Although sewing a scarf is probably the EASIEST thing a person could ever sew.)

I don’t think I could ever stop loving polka dots.

I was debating whether or not to wear this radioactive neon skirt today — I thought it might be too bright and attention-grabbing. I never like being the center of attention, so I was very close to changing just before I stepped out the door this morning. As I suspected, every single person I walked past today had a “WTF” look on their face. OH WELL. I still think it’s awesome and I don’t regret my decision at all.

You gotta just bite the bullet sometimes, have some fun, and not give a fuck what anyone thinks.

I’ve only worn this skirt twice… does anyone want to buy it from me? Send me an email or ask and we’ll sort out details. I’m thinking $40 + shipping?

Another couple of photos from this shoot. It would be a shame to not post them, because I hate to waste pretty things. No photo left behind!

I finished my first sewing project! I’m not thrilled with how the skirt turned out, but for a first-timer, I think I did OK! The important thing is that I know exactly what I could do differently next time to make it better, so this was an amazing learning experience. I can’t wait to get started on my next one!
