the sun after the rain + cassie and sid


the jeggings the jacket
it's been a frustrating few days. crap weather, i'm breaking out, i feel gross and men on the street can be disgusting. i thought maybe a little retail therapy was in order today even in these "trying and failing to save times" (did i mention work's been less lucrative too lately?). so i went out to try and exchange an h&m jacket for a smaller size, get some jeggings and some dark grey jeans. headed to the h&m on bloor where they didn't have my jacket or the denim jeggings i've become obsessed with, i need a 2nd pair. then to aritzia and holts for denim. again no luck. i decided on some hudson's but they were either the wrong colour or the wrong size. the only sparkle in my day so far was getting a gorgeous pink neon and grey leopard scarf from zara. but wait then it started p o u r i n g. i got soaked in my 25minute walk home, grrr. waiting for me were my colin stuart boots. except they were too big, and not at all as cute as i expected. doub. grrrr. i would keep them if they weren't almost 200$ with shipping/duty/exchange because they were comfortable and looked good done up, but when you folded them down to expose the shearling they stuck out a lot in a weird way, so they are returned. finally i decided to give it one more go and try the h&m at dufferin mall. a place were you can buy lotions from the red sea, any possible gadget for your iphone and the world's largest door knocker earrings. the mall does have a walmart and an h&m so i actually frequent it on the regular and today i loved what i found. both my smaller jacket and my jeggings! now i'm home getting ready for a watchmen/the messengers doub. feature.

i guess my luck has changed.

ladyyyy, i SO know how you f e e l!!!!!
I remember taking shelter under the Gap at Bay & Bloor last summer as a MASSIVE downpour ruined my shopping marathon. I even posted abt it: it's under Mentionable: "the sound of her voice was like a wild tonic in the rain".


LOVE your jeggings!!! and i completely empathize with the feeling of paying duty and anticipating something only to see if fits awfully no matter how you try and "re-work" it. but i would imagine your YSL ring success could kind of makeup for the Colin Stuart boot loss ;).


You comment abt fashion going from a liking to DEVOURING is soooo relateable. I just had to fill out a questionnaire for LOULOU web abt how fashion/beauty have influenced me substantially in the past 5 yrs and i totally feel i've transitioned from a clothes horse to being ENAMORED with fashion and learning the history- i was just discussing that with a friend/colleague.


Also, i KNOW the miu miu flats don't seem very me, but at the same time my style kind of borders on feminine to edgy and lately, for whatever reason, it seems to be more of the former than the latter.
