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.

city lights will inspire you

Hi All!
Well, I'm finally back from New York. The travelling there and back was hellish (I'm not a fan of flying), but the trip itself was absolutely fantastic! I had so much fun exploring the city, eating at fabulous restaurants, and shopping. It was especially great to meet some readers, thanks for introducing yourselves, it's always such a highlight to meet people who read the blog. The only strange part of my stay was not being legal drinking age there... It's hard enough looking 16 when the drinking age is 19. I definitely can't pass for 21 even though it's only 4 months away... but thankfully all waiters either took pity or were clueless and served me anyhow.

long live McQueen

Hello Friends,
I wanted to put up a quick post before I leave for New York tomorrow. Thank you all for the emails, comments, and tweets about places I need to check out. I seriously have enough must-see places to last me ten visits and I so, so appreciate it! I have also received a lot of questions regarding great NYC spots, so I'll be sure to put up a detailed post about my favourite places upon my return.
Also, I'm testing out a new header made for me by my lovely reader Kaitlin. What do you guys think? Thanks Kaitlin!

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!

you felt like you were disappearing every time you crossed a road. - J.D. Salinger,

This weekend consisted of a girls night out, a girls night in, lots of red wine, highlighter pink nails, amazing music, eating out, razor blade earrings and dancing till we couldn't dance anymore.
Everything in this outfit is a pretty recent purchase. After searching for the perfect pair of leather trousers, I finally found them at (of course) 69 Vintage.
