it's a pirate's life




so my lovely friend jessie wants a balenciaga post, but i can't do that look without posting the couple outfits i have in queue first. so i'll try to get them all up by the end of the weekend, so she can see my newest fashion love early next week. let's begin, i'm wearing two of my favourite 2010 buys in this post. a fab. vintage geoffrey cat jacket and my much lusted after westwood boots. i talked about both in past fashion haul videos, but in case you don't watch my videos (you can check them out here) i'll give you some background. i found these boots for approx.. 500$ off the canadian price. they're were 3 pairs left in the store and only one in my size, eeek. uber find. they are the tall version with the back leather strap so they don't slouch as nicely as the original pirate boots and they are knee height. i got a couple extra holes put in each strap so they fall a bit and can be folder over, so iconic! they are very narrow so i had to get a half size bigger and thus they did kind of destroy my feet the first time i wore them all day but hopefully insoles will solve that problem.

a shout out to my lovely stylist charlotte who cut my hair today and made me look like bella. that's what i tell her when i go in, i want kristen stewart hair! pre-joan jett crop of course. parlour is the best hair salon in toronto! esp. when we get to gossip and talk about true blood the whole session.
jacket: vintage (ebay), hoodie: alternative apparel, top: wildfox, jeans: ag stilts, boots: westwood

Cindy, you're looking quite fantastic! Love the pairing of the coat and the boots - now i don't know if it's cause of the viv westwood boots but there's something very british about this look ;) Speaking of the boots, that is one CRAZY find!! HEll ya!

Can't wait to see that "queue" ok looks you speak of ;) Oh and i really must get into true blood, i've heard such great things about the series. And i'm completely obsessed with their theme song, it's been like my number one tune on my roster since last summer lol

I adore your Westwood boots, I am beyond jealous. I stare wistfully at them in the Westwood shop in my city.
And you have such great vintage finds, raiding your wardrobe would be so cool.
