port elgin part 2.

this day was a lot sunnier. i loved the colour of the water, so much energy.
i'm wearing pretty much the same outfit in these too, lol. i hope you don't mind all these port elgin pictures. it's just nice to use my nikon outside and really maximize it's potential. i love so many of the shots. there's going to be two more sets from this trip going up soon.

**** and a reminder that my tabio contest is ending soon. i've decided to extend it one day until tuesday because of the holiday weekend in the usa, in case some of my readers have been on vacation and away from the internet. make sure you enter!!! good luck.


haul and contest!!!!

this is a haul featuring thrift, h&m, f21 and tabio.
at the end of the video i talk about my first blog contest!!!!
you can win a pair of tabio little heart tights in black and a pair of tabio side patterned over the knee socks in navy, both featured in my tabio video.

all you have to do is comment below with you favourite product from tabio.com. it can be anything from the site. make sure you leave your name so i can contact you if you win. i will put all the entries through a random number generator to pick the winner. contest closes moday nov 30th at 6pm eastern time. it is open to everyone but one entry per person.

my favourite tabio item would actually be a tie between the two products i feature in the video.
the 110 denier tights and the petite floral roll top socks. love those so much!

*** i filmed this on a different camera so that is why it's sideways and also the quality is still processing....

desperately seeking sienna seeking susan

chanel, chloe susans and leggings.
this is why i love this woman.
and i really love her, sienna is the top for me.
more than kate, alexa, kristen, rachel, anja and both olsens, i adore sienna.

port elgin part 1.

on the beach, it was pretty overcast this day and very windy. there are wind farms all around port elgin.

our rented cottage, it's like a little boat. the boy matches the blue paint, so cute.

on the edge of lake huron, it's so wild looking.

ladybugs!!! they were everywhere, but they esp. loved this log. they would get all over your legs too.

i'm going to split up the port elgin posts in days so it's not a ton of photos in one blog.
keep in mind my up north fashion sense differs from my city attire. it's leggings, over sized tees, sweats, uggs, moccasins, work socks, no make up, wind swept hair and chucks.
in the city i drink starbucks, in the north tim hortons bitches.
coat and scarf: h&m leggings: aritzia, shoes: chucks, socks: wal-mart.

stayed in last night

new hair, chunky vintage knits and my favourite dark green nail polish.
i spent last night in a vampire diaries/csi haze,
reading magazines and wishing i had tickets to the midnight screening of new moon.
i love unexpected thursday nights off.

who knew she was a twi-hard?

alexa chung in katy rodriguez at the new moon premiere in nyc.
i need to see this movie.


alexa and kate

check out this video of alexa chung and kate lanphear at armani exchange's latest event. alexa talks about her favourite clothing picks and kate gets excited about "getting her disco on" in some a/x glitter. i never expected her to talk like this. she comes of as very cool and a bit unaffected but in this video she's so animated. in fact, dare i say it, i think she has a case of the "clueless syndrome" (clueless syndrome: permeant vocabulary and speech damage from being influenced by the clueless film during development, leads to voice inflictions that make every sentence sound like you're asking a question and the over use of the word "like", "you know?"). which makes me like totally feel a little better about being a victim of it as well. sorry about the watermark on the above picture but i had to post it anyway. it is my favourite shot of alexa from the a/x event and how cute is she with that dog?

so sad

envy overload

she is the ultimate.
i don't care if people think she's past her prime or she's lost her spot at top of the model totem pole. she will always be number one to me.
sure, if you compare her to a 16/17 year old face she's not going to look as fresh but come on look at these shots. is there anything better?

these photos remind me of sophia copolla's marie antoinette

check it out if you like, true north loves.

tabio baby

these are the various looks i paired with my tabio socks and tights. i liked everything tabio sent, but i loved the flower tights (1st look), highly recommend them! so stunning. for more information on these products or the company check out my vlog below and tabio.com.
the flower tights. my favourite item and outfit. these tights are durable and stunning. the pattern is pretty, leg lengthening and it doesn't over power an outfit. i paired the tights with a vintage dress and shoes. these buckled babies are so comfortable and at 28$ a great vintage score.
the vertical single side patterned over the knee socks. these surprised me as i wasn't too sure about the pattern at first. i loved their construction the band both held up the sock but also didn't dig into your leg (the video explains this better!) they are a bit pricy, but if you want a great pair of over the knees to invest in these are a good option. i wore them with a vintage reconstructed diy levis skirt, gap sweater, vintage boots and id tag necklace.

the polka dot tights. the tight trend of the season, thanks to the balenciaga fall 09 show. i loved these, they are the same make as my beloved heart print tights, just as silky and good quality. these are a bit more elegant though and perfect dressed up or down. i wore them with some vintage boots and an aritzia studded tee over a tahari chiffon pleated mini + a new hair cut!
the one negative with these is even though they are stronger then most sheer stockings i've tried, they will run if you aren't careful with them. i wouldn't get too sad if they do though because they even look great laddered (i think these girls even did it on purpose ;), check it out.
