unable to clarify

This week has certainly been an interesting one! In the midst of school insanity, life seems to have taken off in a thousand different directions. When it rains, it really does pour, doesn't it? A visit from my best friend Christopher on Wednesday made my week and on Thursday, I celebrated my bestie Dani's birthday. Now, sadly, it's time to get to work, I literally have essays coming out my ears.
These photos are from outside the Acne store in Soho. I was super disappointed by the stock, especially when my favourite short Pistol boots were on sale but sold out in my size. I miss New York and I can't wait to go back.

These jeans don't photograph that well, but they're the best epically shredded pants ever. They're by Horace, which I got at Carte Blanche, one of my favourite shops in Toronto.
(Horace jeans, Vintage vest, H&M men's shirt, Topshop jacket & boots)

  4. Oh, this is perfect! The outfit I'd love to throw on during a weekend day trip. Very chic, yet the layering relaxes the look. Love the lipstick shade!

  7. Love this look, there is something about it that is refreshing, like i haven't seen ripped jeans/striped top/ jean vest/ coat together before. I'm not sure why, but it looks really good, love it!

  27. No, the jeans are awesome! They remind me of the Stolen Girlfriend's Club ones.. but they weren't black.. Those are so cool.. the shredding really is awesome.. And I love the jean vest too.. great layering...

    AND I have been dying for a pair of the short pistol boots... Where are some good stores in T.O. that sell Acne? I haven't been looking. I want a pair of Acne jeans, but I will probably end up ordering them off the internet.

    AND.. I can totally relate.. its hell week at school.. essayssssssssss :(

  45. Its hard to tell that they are shredded jeans, they almost look like they are cut and knotted at the side or something. I bet they would have turned out better in different lighting. Love the otfit though! I wish I could have gone to NYC!
