what's new pussycat

I've gotta admit, my motivation for finding a Halloween costume every year fizzled out when I stopped trick or treating. I'm not a huge fan of scary movies or costumes but I love candy so much, I suffer through it.

I cobbled this vague costume together with stuff I already had and some felt triangles taped to a headband. It's more... inspired by cats than an actual costume. Oh well! Having to come up with a costume is worth it for the heavily discounted candy on November 1st.

oh deer

I went to Value Village yesterday to check out their Halloween section, only to find they had NO cat ears! What am I supposed to be for Halloween now, something that requires effort? The trip wasn't wasted however, as I picked up these perfectly kitschy salt and pepper shakers.

striped top and boots: thrifted, cargo pants: joe fresh, open jacket: dynamite

Right before I took this photo I cut my thumb BAD with a butter knife. This is what happens when you have a full time job and have to* feed yourself and write a blog post on your lunch break.

*blogging: a need.

old navy dress, active cardigan, joe fresh socks, scarf HANDMADE (!) by Lillian, thrifted sweater clip, shoes and coat

this coat is without a doubt the best thing I've ever thrifted. It was ten dollars at a Value Village 2 years ago. Wool and cashmere. Light enough to throw on but it's kept me warm on some very cold winter days. Everyone needs a cute little red coat like mine.

take it as it comes

how perfect is this video?

everything i saw

I found this j.crew dress, with tags on, for 15 measly dollars at Value Village.

Apparently, it was from a 2007 Spring collection. I'm amazed that this was hanging in someone's closet completely unworn for almost five years!

j.crew dress, h&m belt, joe fresh socks, very old thrifted shoes

It is a "Spring" dress but I can't wait that long to wear it. Switching out the bow for this tasselled belt and adding some cozy socks does the trick.

Now, I love my iPhone, but I have to say, as convenient as taking a quick snap in the office bathroom is, it does not make for attractive blogging.

top: joe fresh, skirt: dynamite, belt: thrifted. not pictured: black tights, socks, thrifted boots. taking a photo is POINTLESS you've all seen them.

on my "to get" list: a cheap entry-level DSLR (Kijiji?) and shoes that aren't the brown leather vintage boots I wear literally every day.

fall back

my favourite boots on a wet fall day

I know this blog has been pretty sparsely updated from the beginning, but it completely dropped off the past few months since my laptop broke. I'm back with a new one and plan on updating it a lot more from now on. I missed it!
