Fashion from a highschooler's perspective. That is all.

But -Lately there's just been too many times when insecurity just suddenly grabs you and it becomes almost too overwhelming. When everything you say or do seems to be judged, all the time and there's absolutely nowhere to run to. Insecurity about everything, everywhere, sometimes getting so intense that it feels like high caffeine doses on an empty stomach. That ugly, jittery feeling that never ends. Even though you know it's not true (or it could be) because thinking of yourself as the centre of attention/thought is egoistical and stupid.
The thing is, this time of year brings back bad memories. The usual: gossip, ugly fights, 'friends' becoming annoying, misunderstanding. It doesn't bother me so much anymore, but it pops up every so often in my head and I think, "Why, why does it have to be like this? The world and people shouldn't have to act in a certain way, or live with crippling anxiety all the time" And suddenly everything seems unfair and just, so, so sad. Seeing other people like this (which is far too often to be real) is upsetting and it rotates in a vicious circle.
Sometimes life gets so unfair and disgustingly shallow. Will go and put on lots of black eyeliner to go with the emo/shallow thematic.

The site is all in flash, but take a good look at the collection, and you'll find some really gorgeous pieces. For spring/summer, lots of dresses; eyelet, lace trim, satin accents. Tops and skirts that are necessary.
I was also really impressed that they already had their fall/winter 2007 line online. It showcases some more dresses in jewel tones, faux fur trimmings, and wool/tweed coats. French Spy is one label I'm going to keep an eye out for from now on.

In other words, summer turns me into a bohemian kind of girl.
And so my previously planned wardrobe list has grown rather longer.
bright yellow flats $80
khaki bermudas $40
red tank $15
Missoni-esque cropped sweater $50
Gap braided sandals $20
Gap shirtdress $60
Urban Outfitters bright mini $50
Definitely going to blow so much of my paycheck, but it'll be worth it.

I have aspirations to dress in a different pair of lace-up boots everyday, and pair them with a series of floaty white skirts and natty tshirts. Or jeans and my favourite blouse.
I'll scour every single store in Vancouver if I have to, I'll spend my entire weekend devoted to the hunt, but I will not, cannot go without a pair.

- black knee length skirt
- black blazer
- multiple blouses (white, pinstriped, pale blue)
- black tights
- black heels and flats
- vneck sweaters (navy and black)
