Morning Beauty Pt.2

So I was looking on fashion gone rogue again, and came across another lovely editorial called Morning Beauty, I love Daria and these photos are so simple and amazing. Now I dont even know which editorial I like more.. What do you guys think?
Ugh, Im so tired, I need to learn how to actually goto sleep before 2am one day.

It's a Beautiful Day

Today turned out to be lovely, the sun was actually out and shining, and our winter has been surprisingly warm, I love snow in the winter, but I have to admit this warmth has been kind of nice. I went downtown for the day, ended up buying a new bag, feeling a little guilty since I didnt really need a new one, but it was so nice and soft I couldnt resist.

Downtown is looking ready for the Olympics, posters and such all over town, it looks like most of the new buildings are completed too. I cant help to be a little excited even though I wasnt able to get tickets to any of the events, and that everything else is so damn expensive. It will be cool to have so many people from all over though, and I plan on going to some of the free concerts. If you live in Vancouver or near, you should definitely check them out too! Theres going to be a lot of them, such as hot hot heat, we are the city, sam roberts band, said the whale, tokyo police club, alexisonfire, our lady peace, the arkells, bedouin soundclash, and many more, all free! So thats definitely one bonus, check out the rest here.
If you are lucky enough to stay at Whistler Im pretty sure they are going to have even more free performances from artists such as estelle, one republic, all american rejects, the fray, chromeo, usher and more.

Anywaysssss after blabbing about all that I guess I should also mention this fantastic leather jacket I found from BB Dakota. I saw it when I was in the states last week, unfortunately I couldnt get it because I was only down for a few hours, damn that small spending limit!
photo: stylehive, I saw it at Macys though, on sale for about $128, very Rick Owens no?

I've kind of been having an obsession with animal prints/pictures/jewellery lately, I got this dusty rose coloured wild cat at Aritzia not too long ago, TNA I believe. Being super comfy automatically brings it to the top of my favorites list. Don't know if I've ever mentioned this before but I pretty much cannot stand wearing uncomfortable clothing, I couldn't be happier that stores have caught onto the oversized trend, I remember years ago when there was wayy less option and skin tight was more "in style" I can still remember all the sales associates telling me "it looks too big, why dont you go down a size?" No thanks =)

But with all of that being said, I still think the tight look can be seriously sexy and sometimes comfy, it just depends!

Morning Beauty

Soo happy the end of the week is here, I dont have class on Fridays so Thursday has become my new TGIF. I may slightly and slowly be adjusting to these early morning, but Im still not quite there, hence an unconcious pass out on my couch when I got home. Nothing beats a nap.

Im also getting so sick of our damn weather, rain everyday, looks like Im going to have to get something waterproof soon, but what I would really rather is just one nice warm sunny day, where I can go sock-less and be warm =) I think thats why I enjoyed this gorgeous editorial featuring Devon Aoki so much.

I Heart Alice

It seems that the new Alice in Wonderland movie is following in the footsteps of Where the Wild Things Are and doing a whole bunch of collaborations. I cant complain though because for the most part I've quite enjoyed them, including this awesome new collection from OPI...

Im thinking I need that 2nd from the left, "Mad as a Hatter", or possibly even the blue, "Absolutely Alice," and Im not even usually a blue nails type of person.

20 Day Week

Im finally finished with my first week of school, it honestly felt like the longest week ever and it was only 4 days long! Thank god I have Fridays off, I can officially say Ive pretty much been running off of coffee. I think I should add another resolution to my list, going to sleep early. I am much more of an evening person, I can stay up to 2am no problem, but then when I have to get up at 6am... you can see how that might contribute to my near unconciousness right now.

A little evening lookie loo before bed helped me discover these awesome shoes
I dont know what it is about these grey boots, but I love them, great colour too but they also come in black!I've seen these ones before, but I still love them, I dont know if my interest in studs is ever going to subside.

Both of these boots are from Jeffrey Campbell, grey from Urban Outfitters and the black from solestruck.com

Happy New Year '10!!

I hope you guys all had an exciting and safe New Years, mine was pretty relaxing, I am not usually a big New Years person, I spent the night watching the hockey game, and movies =) I am also still in slight shock at how fast the year went, Im hoping 2010 wont speed by so quickly, and it will be much better than 2009.

So I have some resolutions this year, normally I dont even make resolutions because I never ever keep them. Here go's this years:

1. Actually keep my resolutions
2. Have a more healthy lifestyle
3. Clean out my closet, and discover a whole bunch of items that I know are lost somewhere in that abyss.
4. Set aside more time for blogging!

This is all I can come up with for now, I am also going to try to take a more personal approach with my blog because I really dont convey much on here. Other items to be possibly added to my list.

Also to come the new additions to jewellery family! I already completely love them =)
