it's going to be a roaring twenties holiday season

I'm currently seeking a few moments refuge from all my studying. I've been taking study breaks looking up 1920s fashions and I'm OBSESSED! I've had a thing for the twenties ever since 10th grade when my teacher made us learn the Charleston, and showed us images of flappers. The twenties are probably my favourite era for clothing. The beautiful dresses, the hair, the jewelry and of course the attitude that went along with everything. I think what makes the clothing so attracting is the history that goes along with it. This was the era when women finally began to break out of the standards that had been set up for them. I could give you all a history lesson, but I'll let you do the research yourselves. You can all just enjoy these photographs for now :)

Ps. In reference to my title, I bought a flapper dress at a vintage shop for an incredible price and I plan to wear it for Christmas, complete with the hair, the makeup and the attitude.

everybody's changing

Vintage shirt, H&M skirt, Michael Kors watch, Gifted tights, Minnentonka flats, gifted jewelry, Holt Renfrew beret.

It's crunch time in school, hence my lack of posts. It's rather silly, especially since I have quite a few outfits lined up, but I haven't gotten to posting them. Anyways, I love this outfit. It really makes me think of Autumn; the orange skirt and the beautiful background of bright yellow leaves. The leaves have almost fallen to the ground now, I've started noticing the first snowflakes, and the cold wind is blowing in. Winter is coming, but so is my Christmas break, so I'm going to get back to my books!

ruby ruby ruby

Wearing a vintage skirt, Guess top, Doc Martens, gifted socks, mom's crystal necklace.

I have a very small fall break from school (two days -- SO MUCH TIME...not), so while ploughing through an essay, I decided to let my mind rest by having a mini-photoshoot. I really love this plaid skirt, but it's just such an impractical article of clothing to wear everyday. It awkwardly opens up at the side and it drags on the ground because I'm much shorter than my mom to whom it belongs. Anyways, it is fun to wear for playing dress-up.

I went with a rather glam gone rocker look. My best friend said that the way I styled my hair makes it seem like one side is shaved off...which does look rather cool, aha.

I hope that no matter how busy you all are, you're taking some time to go outside and enjoy autumn!
