Dress? Vintage (from my own shop, oops) Shoes? Aldo (old) Clutch? Vintage Pics? ADarlingandADear

I think not posting in three weeks is called Slacker Blogging. I prefer to call it Blogging When You Feel Like It because after you've been blogging for many years the idea that you can just blog when you want to is quite novel and freeing.
To be honest, I've had some busy and stressful weeks and my writing really suffers when I'm stressed. Not like I'm writing high brow literature here but I like to write something a little more compelling than 'this is my new dress'.

Anyways, this is my new dress.

Yeah, I went there...

I stole the dress from the shop for a wedding we had a few weekends ago. I'm surprised it even made it into the shop; sequins, long sleeves... it's kinda my thing. No one bought it in two months it was hanging up and so, predictably, I just took it home with me where it belonged all along.
This 70's dress was originally a maxi dress but I thought hemming it to just below the knee would add some elegance. Because sometimes I need that little bit of elegance to hide the hot mess I am (I feel like I am?) inside...


Sunny Day Shopping

Dress? h&m (here) Bag? Longchamp (thrifted, look up the Roseau bag on Ebay if you are looking for one) 
Shoes? Coach Belt? Thrifted

Last weekend I met up with a friend in Toronto for a girlzzzz night out (I hate that expression, ha... and yet I use it) and on the following day, after my friend left, I was planning on walking around the city alone and entertaining myself in Toronto just like I used to do in University. Honestly, it was the most glorious day, the sun was shining, I'm pretty sure some birds were chirping and I don't think I could see a single grumpy person. I wandered into H&M convinced that I was just killing time and 17 minutes later I walked out with this dress which I had bought full price. 
That's when I decided to head straight to the station to catch a bus home. I just bought a dress from the mall for full price; I was clearly in too good of a mood to waste time in Toronto. Back home I spent the rest of the day relaxing in our back yard... safely away from any retail spaces that could take advantage of my good mood:)


Pink Slips

Purse? Longchamp (thrifted*, some on Ebay here) Pants? Vintage Wrap top? American Apparel (here)
 Pumps? Zara Jacket? Old Navy (so old but I can never seem to donate it...)

I wore this out with Julie and she told me I looked like a 'boss lady' and like 'someone who is going to fire people'. I assume people who fire people work in human resources and I'm not sure crop tops are part of the HR dress code but it doesn't matter anyway because no one was fired in the making of this post. 
What did go down is that Julie and I went out for tacos and margaritas and this is what I wore. It's important one looks professional when eating 4 tacos in under 6 minutes. Keeping things classy...

*seriously, I thrifted this for $20 I think? Perfect condition. And it's so lovely I feel like I am too much of a slob for this kind of quality...



Dress? Vintage via A Darling and A Dear (she sells at my shop and has a blog too!) Shoes? Guess, thrifted 
Mesh clutch? Vintage Cuff? Vintage (very similar one on my Etsy) Sunglasses? Tom's

I'm always excited to find a new colourful good wall to use for my professional modelling career. Matt's always excited for good walls too because they enhance his professional iPhone photography career. We're just a bunch of professionals over here...
Joking aside, we all know I love a good wall. It adds something fun as a background but mostly it keeps picture taking super efficient. And efficiency is the most important part to maintaining a happy marriage and a blog that has gone on for too many years. When I have a good wall in full shade, I know how the pictures are going to turn out and Matt can do pictures in 3 minutes. When you've been asking a guy who has no inclination towards photography or artistry to take your picture for over 6 years, you make the process as painless as possible. 
So yay for conveniently located lime green walls. And yay for Matt, who caught some accidental sun flares across the pictures, which give the illusion of effort...
