    Blogtober Day: XXIII – OOTD

    Is it really an OOTD if I am actually only showcasing the top half of my outfit? In my defense, I’m only wearing black tights and boots – not very interesting and all that really matters is the bat print. I hauled this bat print dress with a few other pieces from Modcloth. It fits really well, it is on the thinner side for material but is also lined so I can at least wear it for the remainder of the fall. The dress isn’t actually black, it’s a really deep navy so my one navy cardigan that I never wear gets to see the light of day. What’s that…

    Blogtober – Day VII: Fall Bags

    PSA – I am not a fashion blogger, I take terrible photos of clothing and accessories and everything manages to look like blobs. Did I stuff a throw pillow into these bags to make them stand up? Yea, I absolutely did and it actually kinda’ worked but these super cute bags still have quite a blobby quality about them. I managed to sort through all of my warm weather clothes, store them away and get all of my cold weather stuff out. I dug out all of my fall bags, now do I have far too many bags to be a true minamilist? Yea, totally but I figure that I…

    Blogtober – Day III: Fall Fashion

    Cool weather clothing is what I feel most comfortable in, there’s more opportunity to put together actual outfits instead of just throwing on something mostly presentable that you can beat the heat in. I don’t purchase a lot of clothing, so I am glad to see some trends coming back that I already own pieces of. I am looking forward to fully embracing some of this season’s hottest trends! I love me some Peg Bundy vibes, animal prints are surprisingly easy to wear and can add flair to just about any ensemble. If I looked 1/4 as good as Blake Lively does in a suit, I would absolutely wear men’s…

    A Little Modcloth Haul

    I have listened to the Lore podcast for literally years, I love it – I would describe it as a collection of spooky real-life tales that are horror leaning but not terribly unsettling. I also really enjoy the narrator, he is very engaging and the tales are just long enough to get you hooked and then set out to find out more on your own. About a year ago, Amazon came out with a show called Lore and I was like, that looks stupid. But then today while loading up my podcast fix, I realized that the font used for Lore reminded me of something and it took me awhile…

    On Trend – Summer Trousers

    A few weeks ago, I decided that this was the year that I would try to start wearing pants. Yup – I don’t wear pants. Outside of yoga pants that I actually use for their intended purpose, I didn’t own a single pair of pants until roughly 2 weeks ago. In the winter, this is fine but in the summer, it’s a pain and I just can’t be bothered. I don’t wear pants because I have disproportionately fat knees, I am not sure when I acquired this attribute and it’s problematic. I used to play pretty competitive volleyball and never recall the fat knee issue but here we are. I…

    Mad Fashion

    I just read this 10,000 word article about how to quit Facebook and I’m at a loss as to why 1) This article was necessary and 2) Why it was so long. The assumption is that quitting Facebook is hard and suddenly you won’t have the same access to your friends and family and my GOD – you might have to go back to communicating in methods that existed pre-2005. The insanity. It’s not that fucking hard, just delete your profile – I can almost guarantee that nothing bad will happen. I still read the article though so who am I to judge? I started the first season of Mad…

    Flirty Finds Ft. Modcloth

    Do you ever watch too many documentaries about exorcisms and then become convinced that 1) You could be possessed or 2) Will be in the very near future, because – same. Demonic possession, not that common – right? Wrong – well, probably not but apparently they are on the rise and you can go to school to become an exorcist. I went to a religious school, how come that wasn’t offered as part of the curriculum?! Can you make a career of that? Or is it like a part time gig? What do you do for a living? I’m an exorcist. More on exorcisms later, I have been admiring all of…

    Fall Fashion Haul: Part I

    I am doing a Christmas list for a local shelter, they list out a bunch of stuff that they would like to give to kids at the shelter and I collect the items and deliver them. Blah, blah, blah. One of the items listed was Shopkins which, not having little kids in my life regularly, I had no idea what that was. I did some research and they are these little, figurine things that I still don’t totally get anyway, while I was doing my research I read many a review. In one review, the package was supposed to contain 30 pieces but there were only 27 and the purchaser’s daughter was not…

    Fall Fashion Inspo.

    We are currently experiencing torrential rain, photos aren’t gonna’ happen today. I am watching The Simpsons and online shopping for clothing that will probably end with me purchasing something wildly impractical. I have a work uniform, I wear pretty much the same thing every day – pencil skirt, blouse, cardigan in variations of black, navy, grey and the occasional red. I am going through my fashion board for some wardrobe ideas, to start – sassy pants! Florals, textures, bold colours – if I am going to wear pants, they are going to have to be sassy. Are corduroys still a thing because I am feeling those purple ones, the cut…

    Pastels, If We Must

    Sometimes I hate that we live our lives so transparently online, I feel as though we have so much access to intimate information that we didn’t have even 10 years ago. I hate it when I read or hear something distasteful that someone I admire says or does. I was reading an article today and it was about a favourite childhood star and I couldn’t help thinking what a pretentious little idiot the person was while I was reading their responses to the interview questions– I was so disappointed. I don’t even know why truly, we don’t know these people, what they say and do has no bearing on our…
