is it worth it? let me work it.

Aloha.
  • I am doing this post in bullet points because I am half asleep about to crash into my bed and sleep forever
  • My lack of posting is due to me being insanely sick, it has literally been once ailment following the next. Trying to balance getting better and school work, while still trying to go out every other night is next to impossible. Thankfully, I'm starting to get a bit better.
  • This week my best friend and I went to see The Gossip in concert. Officially in love with Beth Ditto, but even moreso because she came to the after party and hung around smoking and drinking with everyone. And she has amazing pink hair right now. I didn't want to sound like a complete fangirl and ask for a photo but now I really wish I had.
  • I am loving floor length skirts and dresses right now.
  • New necklaces! One is a whistle and the other is a piece I stole from my mother that I will likely never return because it is awesome and chunky and perfect.
  • When I first saw the preview for the H&M Divided Exclusive Collection, I knew I had to get this jacket. I love it and it's studded deliciousness so much that I almost never take it off.
  • This week marks the start of Toronto Fashion Week which I will be attending - I'm SO excited.


Goodnight!!

  8. The jacket is incredible. And please feel better and take care of yourself, girl! I wasn't well for a good portion of the summer and it was crap. Indeed, our lifestyles don't always support health, but it's so nice to feel good. xoxo

  19. Wow, that is a lovely look! I'm also really into floor lenght dresses and skirts right now - it's such a fresh and cool look. I really love your grey dress with the black leather jacket and the studs. Also your necklaces are really petty.
    I'm saving this in my inspiration folder right now - looove everything about it.

  47. awww missy, im so sorry you are ill.
    I am as well, but nothing extreme, just a fuck off nasty cough from too many cigarettes, an abundance of booze and little sleep. post party has really come down hard on me. I am staying in for at least two weeks now.

    Hope Toronto Fashion Week is amazing. You look stunning, very Olsen-twin, but better- your hair is perfection. Where do you live btw? At home? Are you at college? What do ya studayyy? ahh, so many questions!

    lots of love, as always! get better soon!

  50. I hear you on being sick! I had a ten day stomach virus followed by a few days of feeling better only to fall ill again while in nyc: this time the flu. they thought i had H1N1, which thankfully i didnt. back on track today!

    I have those mocassins! in that colour too! I also have two pairs of camel ones. they are so comfy. but the grey's my fave because the sole is soooo thin.

    have a great week, lady!

  60. liz, you look glorious!
    and your sunglasses remembered me of the john lennon-like ones I can't seem to find anywhere- damn! off to scan my room for them now.

    hope everything's fine with you, I'm in a crazy rush of uni, working and weekend trips to hamburg to catch up with friends and drinks.
    hopefully everything calms down a little by next week so I can get back into the blogging spirit.
