    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…

    Modcloth Sale Pick-Ups

    I am feverishly planning my work Halloween costume, it was between Ms. Frizzle (a staple in my adult costume rotation) or your basic witch and I think I am going basic this year. Although, I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of a gorgeous tulle skirt that will pizazz it up a bit. I am so excited for Halloween but also a tad sad that soon it will be over! I wish Halloweentown was a real place *le sigh* Modcloth was recently having a 25% off sale and I had to take advantage. I picked up various accessories and thought I would share a few! First up, are these grey, faux…

    New Bag!

    Modcloth has struck again – they have a handful of new totes from StreetLevel. I own a number of these totes and they are all fabulous from the construction to the colours – just really nice, affordable bags. My very first tote is a deep green one and it is getting a little worn after 4 years – I wish they would bring it back so that I can get a backup! This new tote while the same size has a little bit different build, it has two compartments that snap close and a middle zippered compartment. My other totes have 1 snap closure and I am loving the separate…
