  • OOTD - School time

    So here I am looking all loose and fancy free - this is misleading.  I've actually been trapped in a vortex of school work, studying, sewing, no-sleep induced delirium and a cornucopia of complaining about all of this.  In retrospect it's all been worth the learning experience, despite coming out of the tail end of this semester with no social life, major eye bags and complete neglect of my blog!  Allow me to catch you up.

    This is totally an outfit that I would wear to school (minus the 3 bags I have to carry full of sewing/drafting supplies, fabric and an unorganized mish mash of papers).   Wait, that is not completely accurate.  This is an outfit I would wear to school on days when I don't have to be up at 6am for 8am class.  Those days I look like a frightening, greasy wildebeast raging out on too much caffeine.  I won't post about those days, I promise.

    I absolutely love this blouse, it was a must-buy when I saw it in a little independent shop in San Francisco.  The asymmetric hem is all very now and not very flattering and I don't care!  I love it!

    I found this horsey belt buckle at a garage sale this summer and I've been wearing it like there's no tomorrow.  The clutch has been packed away with a bunch of shit I have been hoarding since my job at a thrift store when I was in high school - it was just begging to be used.

     

    Pretty obsessed with these grey suede clogs.  They were $8 at Value Village.  EIGHT BUCKS!   Actually, if I want to get long-winded here (and I do) I'll fill you in on how I felt like these clogs dropped into my lap for karmic-ish reasons.  I had gone to the Toronto Clothing Show a few times back and discovered the most amazing pair of wood clogs with fucking sweet floral tapestry on the top.  Tried them on and GASP! they fit perfectly.  I hummed and hawed over the $40 price tag (in retrospect, the price should not have been an issue.  Plus, they weren't even expensive!) and decided to not buy them.  This choice haunted me daily for probably 18 months, until these bad boys landed right in my face on a casual thrifting adventure like it was no big deal.  Maybe I do believe in fate after all.

    All of this jewellery I made myself under my Hibou Accessories line.  Unfortch, I had to put it on hiatus to focus on school but that's not to say I won't be pulling some gems out in the future!
