Love Me Some Hair

Love Me Some Hair

The Fashion MedleyThere are only three instances where being hairier is an advantage: 1) the actual hair on a head 2) a beard on a man 3) any kind of bag, shoe, top, coat or accessory that is calf hair. (Ok we can also add the bushy eyebrows to this list). For some unknown reason I’m drawn to hairy & fluffy objects like a moth to a flame. I mean seriously, you know that weird guy/girl at the shop that touches or rather caresses stuff for a while – I am that person. I am also the person who goes and buys that stuff no matter how unpractical it is. I do love me some hair.

Power Of Stripe

Power Of Stripe

The Fashion MedleyLast Halloween contributed to my wardrobe with a pair of American Apparel disco pants which I fooled myself into buying as a wardrobe staple that I’d eventually keep on wearing, didn’t work out. Not because the pants are ugly or uncomforable or anything, it’s just not a suitable style for me (big ass + shiny pants = not a good equation). This year’s obligatory costume purchase was this dress (see how I subtly choose costumes that force me to buy clothing instead of, well, costumes) and as of day 1 I’m already ahead of last year in terms of purchase justification.

You Go Girlfriend

You Go Girlfriend

The Fashion MedleyFor the sake of owning every type of jean in at least one pair (I already had skinny low waist, skinny high waist, mom, boyfriend, ripped and flare in various colors) I bought this pair of “girlfriend” jeans almost half a year ago. It was the only one missing from the collection and I thought I should have it, just like everything else I don’t already own (I’m like a case study for shopaholics anonymus). I must admit it’s not a great choice for women with large thighs and skinny ankles, moreover they are impossible to pair with flats if you are fairly short but you put on pumps and: Mission Accomplished.

Sweater Overload

Sweater Overload

The Fashion MedleyWhat’s better than a chunky, oversized sweater dress? Two chunky oversized sweaters one worn as a scarf over the other (thank youu Stella McCartney and Christophe Lemaire for the inspiration). It’s hard to breathe, sure, but I am willing to make that compromise. For the boots: since I can’t  afford a Calvin Klein but very very much in love with the design since day one, I bought a similar pony hair effect pair from Topshop and changed the shoelaces with these cream leather cords. Needless to say they’re my favorites now.

Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

The Fashion MedleyHappy thanksgiving Canada, my new home and non-native land! I love you so much that this year I am most thankful for you letting me live, work, dine, cafecrawl, wander around and be with my husband in here. I am thankful for your horrible winter making the rents unbelievably cheap, thankful for your precious French being a pain in my ass forcing me to learn the most beautiful language in the world.

I am thankful for all my friends in and out of Montreal, my amazing supporting family whom I love madly and my handsome, kindhearted, super fun husband for making every minute of my life better than the one before. Last but not least, I am overwhelmingly thankful for you, all my followers, for making this little blog of mine go on for as long as it did. You’re great and I love you!
