musings of a dreamer

I am and always will be a 90's kid. Weren't the 90's the best decade? I often find myself feeling sorry for kids who have to grow up in this new age. All the new technology seems to make childhood less fun. I remember having to come home when the streetlights were on, playing in the park, wearing crowns of braided dandelion's, dancing to the Spice Girls, and wearing a lot of spandex. Those were the good times. I miss them. A lot. This outfit is my tribute to the 90's. Unfortunately, I forgot to wear my white ruffled socks. Denim, braids, friendship bracelets, hair clips, neon spandex shorts, the whole combo. Got to love the 90's.

eyes like a child

These photographs turned out really weird because the weather was weird on Saturday. That's right, this outfit is from Saturday. I was too lazy to post it, and now I'm going to be backlogged in outfit posts. Shame on me.
Anyways, this dress has been my favourite summer dress for the past three years. Pretty, isn't it?


















Guess dress. Costa Blanca cape. Michael Kors wedges. Holt Renfrew earrings. Pearl cross is a gift.

people say i only see what i want to

One thing you should all know about me is this: I love vintage clothing. A lot. But sometimes there are some problems, like with this shirt for example, the fabric is horrible. I've noticed lately that the fabric that some of my vintage clothing is made out of is pretty crappy. This blouse itches so much, I was in pain wearing it. It felt like tiny needles were prickling my skin. The only way I'll be able to wear this shirt will be with a long sleeved tee underneath. It's a shame it has to be saved for colder weather.
Nothing too special about this outfit. It was hot and humid today so I chose something that would be comfy.

one step at a time

I've been having a lot of shoe trouble lately. The wedges that I debuted last Monday had to be returned because they ripped within 10 minutes of me wearing them, then a pair of Michael Kors wedges that I bought yesterday were too slippery to walk in, so I returned those also. Today I bought the wedges I'm wearing in these pictures. It's incredibly hard to find a comfy, well made and pretty pair of wedges, but I think that these will last...hopefully, fingers crossed. I'm so tired of returning shoes.

So G20 craziness going on here in Toronto. Watching the news right now, and it's crazy. At least the police are taking some action today, yesterday was a major fail. They didn't do anything. Six police cars were torched and no police appeared to do anything until it was too late. Downtown Toronto looks so sad. Watched a video of an American Apparel getting it's windows broken, so sad. :( I feel horrible for all the people whose property has been destroyed.

pull on my neon heartstrings

I've had a small problem for a long time: I own a lot of skirts that are too short to be worn without tights, and even with tights, you can't exactly bend over and it's uncomfortable to sit down. Problem solved: American Apparel neon bike shorts. They are incredible and add an awesome pop of colour into my outfits. I want to get a pair of neon green and yellow ones still. I could wear them everyday.
