A Hello and Goodbye

I went to visit Kim at her brand new location for Lovesick, the killer vintage shop in London Ontario, now located at 723 Richmond St. It was a bit of a hello and goodbye as it was my first time seeing her new shop and my last before moving to Toronto. I went with my good friend Emily of Emily.Jane Photography and she took some great photos (as per usual) and below are some of my favourites.

An amazing cape available for sale and me making my most beautiful "model" face

Creepers I would have purchased if they were a half size bigger.




Kim and I




One of the most beautiful hats I have ever seen!



Kim finds the most wonderful things! When was California still a republic?

Kim made some wonderful rings that she is selling in the shop!

Anyone else as obsessed with Miu Miu's Fall 2011 shoe collection? I am particularly in love with the above shoes, I mean, who wouldn't want their feet to be covered in gold sparkle?

Packing, packing, and more packing!


Yes this is a lol cat and yes this is my life currently. I'm sorry I have been awful at posting lately! Eric and I finally found a perfect apartment above a dress shop (score one), with a claw foot tub (score two) which is painted bright blue (score three) and is downtown (score four). It's a sweet place, but it means my life is consumed with packing, booking u-hauls, elevators, changing telephone numbers (note to self don't send out resumes and then change your phone number the next day, ok?), etc. It's crazy, but I do have a couple of fashion related things to post later! I promise! Look forward to no lol cats and fashion tomorrow. Also, let's pretend I am equipped with an army of Louis Vuitton luggage for the move instead of garbage bags, OK?

Please?

One week until my birthday and, just putting it out there, anyone who buys me these gorgeous Dior Fall 2011 wedges will be my BFF. Any colour will do; in a size 40 please. Thanks!

Outfits and Outings

Emily.Jane Photography and I went out for a picnic and walk through the Market. I wore a top from H&M, Nine West shoes, vintage skirt, bag, and necklace from Lovesick. As I have said before I am very into Polka Dots right now and can't wait to wear layers and layers come fall! Here is my summer version as layers and layers just wont work for the moment.

One Crazy Weekend

Unfortunately I only have a few photos to share from this weekend because, my camera is unbelievably awful and 80% of my pictures didn't turn out, and Eric and I forgot our passports and spent most of our weekend on the greyhound bus. We were ten minutes outside of London on our way to Toronto when we realized we both left our passports sitting at home. The wedding was in Niagara Falls New York and there would be no crossing the border without them so we had to continue to Toronto, spend the day looking at apartments, head straight back to London, sleep, get back on a greyhound to Toronto, and then travel two more hours to my dads house, sleep, then head to Niagara Falls, etc. We were very upset with ourselves for forgetting them, as I'm sure you could imagine. We did find an apartment we really like and are waiting to hear back from the landlord after she calls our references. I'm crossing my fingers as it is in a great neighbourhood, 8 minute walk from the subway, and a 24 hour street car stops right down the street! The wedding was fantastic and I do have a couple of photos below, but as I said almost none of the photos turned out. After our move we are going to start saving for a new camera and will hopefully own our first SLR!

not from our travels, but our cherry tomatos are starting to get ripe!

there was a photobooth at the wedding and I definitely took advantage of it

Summer Heat Inspiration

Sorry for the lack of updates! I have been busy picking up extra shifts at work and the heat has been killing all my inspiration! We had one of the hottest days in history about a week ago and I have been living in cut offs and t-shirts. I saw these two lovely photos on The Sartorialist and it has inspired me to get out of this heat funk and try to remember what joy clothes can bring! I'm off to my cousins wedding this weekend as well as apartment hunting and relaxing in the country, so photos will be in abundance and I will try hard to look as great as those lovely ladies!
