Great steals!

These awesome sequin shorts were such a steal! They were only $5 and I bought them at Forever 21!
The shades were also cheep, I only paid $4 for them, the week after I bought them I saw the same pair in a small shop on Young street in Toronto for $20! Gosh I love bargains <3 :)

Part two of thrifted suit

Blazer/jacket - Part of the thrifted outfit I bought (see previous blog)
Necklace - Found in mom's room
Bag - Roxy
Shorts - Hurley
Heels - Borrowed from sister room (Shhh she doesn't know I took them)

This outfit took me a grand total of 50 seconds to come up with. However, getting ready to take the pictures is another story... This morning I threw on the outfit, heels and all, and then I misplaced my camera. I ran threw out the house searching for it, all the while I had to tip toe in the heels because my dad was still asleep. Lets just say shit would hit the fan if he was awoken by the sound heels walking around the hardwood floors. My calves started to hurt, cause hey have you ever tryed tip toeing in high heels? It's not fun trust me. So I gave up and ran down stairs and stole my dads camera, which could be a good thing because his is sooooooo much better than mine.

In other news, right at the end of taking these pictures my arm went threw the peal neck lace and it broke. Pearls went flying everywhere :(

Its time to get creative!

Yesterday I went out thrift store shopping with my sister and I found this suit. It came with capris denim pants and a denim blazer. So, I purchased the suit, brought it home, cut up the pants and made this outfit! ^
The necklace is also homemade. While rumaging threw my moms jewlery I found this brown bow broach, then I linked together two old necklace chains, took a glue gun and glued the bow to the chain and VOILA! :)

Who ever said stripes and florals don't mix?

I use to have the BIGGEST problem with matching patterns and colours, a couple months ago almost all of my wardrobe was solid colours. Now, however I am proud to say I am a changed woman ;) thanks to my friend Chanel who has introduced me to a fashion world with all sorts of print and designs!
Below is me wearing a pinstripe button down that I swipped from my moms room ;) and a vintage floral bag purchase at a thrift store...

Also, here is a picture I took (again mixing florals and stripes) on a park bench in Toronto :)
