In Control

I've said it before, and I'll say it again because these words ring true to me everytime. The more I stand my ground, the more people prove me right for doing so. I won't explain it, but I'm sure if you were to do the same you'd figure it out :P

This Armani Exchange jacket in the pic (hard to see details) is the perfect in between jacket. It's a velvet with satin stripes going down the sleeves and stuff. I guess it would be the lovechild of a tuxedo jacket and a bomber jacket? I'm weird. Yes. I know. But this jacket? Love.

Expecting another Laurence Kazar vintage sequin jacket to be delivered soon :) Can't wait!

Getting back on the horse....

... so to speak! Onto 2nd sem next week, and I'm ready for it :)

As much as it's nice to be the level-headed individual that I am, I don't like when I'm used as a mediator between 2 people who are experiencing technical difficulties. Even more so when I'm cool as a cucumber sitting here, minding my own beeswax! Don't get me wrong... I love to help those in need. I love to educate people with the lesser stresses of life and how to go about it. And I love love love to make people smile, grin, giggle, chuckle or pee their pants laughing (not literally... that's gross). How can I achieve these goals in my own life if other people want to be a Bitter Betty... or a Pity-Party Peter?! I say forget about those little things. We can all take care of these little things!! But look at the bigger picture, and is a frown really that fuckin nice to look at? No. I'm above that! Life's too short to complain about the little things... some people don't even have enough little things TO complain about.
Be grateful for the life you are living and the things you have. There are people with next to nothing who know how to live better.
End Rant.

Tommy Skirt

What a lovely mixed up week. Sun, rain, snow, clouds, mild, freezing.... But this skirt? I could think of spring and I'm warmed up in a second! I can't bear to look at depressing darks right now. I think if we all just dress like it's Spring, it comes

Current thought... I should reorganize my closet and drawers. Don't get me wrong, I am already organized, be it by colour, style or item. I'm just so limited in closet space that it would be nicer to see more of the things I own. My clothing storage becomes this abyss, or black hole for all things clothing. Either that or I should downsize my wardrobe. Ummmmmm. No.

rain rain rain SUN

It's been a ride, but I feel like the harder I work and try it really pays off :) I guess there's some truth to what "they" say, whoever "they" are. First sem of school is coming to an end, and on I go through the summer! I'm actually, seriously, genuinely, sincerely excited! Not sure how some people deal with a summer off and get back into it in the fall...
I'm so damn looking forward to some wonderful things, namely seeing the Black Keys in concert! That is by far a summer highlight indeed :D Of course that, and wearing pretty much anything in my closet. ANYTHING!
I'm already dusting off my hats ;)

Bargain Leather!

Along with my fab leopard/tiger print lace up booties, I was dying to rock this skirt I got about a year ago from a thrift shop for 4 bucks! Real leather, kinda heavy, lined but smokin'!
Unfortunately I was gonna wear the skirt again, and the back zipper is starting to separate (which I tried to McGiver, but it didn't work..). I guess I'll actually hafto take it to be fixed, and even still the total cost of the skirt is still damn cheap! Aside from the fact that everything is so inexpensive, why do people have such reservations about used clothing? I mean, if you find good quality items all you hafto do is wash it! It takes time and patience to actually spend the time in one and find some good pieces and sometimes you'll be unsuccessful... and sometimes you find something awesome!

The weather is starting to really warm up and this means I can stop layering and walking around like a sausage. Can't wait to wear my oxfords!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Green beer anyone?
