i'm not what i was last summer, not who i was last spring

Hi Friends,
  • I got sent this dress from Akira Chicago. It's the perfect piece for layering, and you can dress it up or down.
  • Today I trekked out of the city to Holts Last Call in Vaughn Mills. Seeing Stella McCartney wedges for $200 and having to walk away because I'm saving for shopping in New York nearly broke my heart.
  • I recently created a Formspring account. Formspring is great because you can ask me any question you want and it's totally anonymous. It's also the perfect distraction for when I don't feel like doing my work. So click here or use the widget on the side bar to start asking!

(Akira dress, Wilfred blazer & sweater, Joe Fresh stockings, Zara shoes)

  1. You make a Toronto winter look so stylish. I like the layering with the stockings and the socks and the booties.

    And I send you my empathy in regards to the Stella McCartney wedges. Shopping can be heartbreaking (especially when only browsing).

  36. The overall vibe is great. but somehow the dress seems kinda empty amking the whole look look a bit gray. But the nylons and the wedges are wonderful. Make you look so much taller.
