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

Cold Questions

Freezing here. Global warming is true, I don't think Vancouver's been this cold since, forever. It's only November too..
I've resorted to layering hoodies over as many shirts I can. Sacrificing style for warmth, and so it'll have to stay until my brain starts thinking of creative and warm ways to dress. As of right now, it's been occupied with the Medieval Ages and writing.

On that note, I'm stumped on some articles I've been asked to write. None of them seriously interest me, but a job is a job is a job. It would be fantastic if you can give me some quotes or comments. No philosophical insights needed.

1.How do criminal activities ruin our economy? and how do they benefit the economy?
2. Does a three person relationship (marriage not sex) work better then a conventional one?
3. How is the Canadian dollar affecting the drug trade?

But until I can get my mind warm enough, these look awfully warm.

If only they weren't made in a sweatshop.

I Approve

I'm never afraid to voice my opinion on various articles of clothing. For example, today my friend gleely told me about her recent legging purchase. "WHAT did you just do?" And I proceeded to pick leggings apart (not literally, but I totally would, but, oh nevermind), and I admit, a bit maliciously. No matter, they're used to it and she still remains a leggings lover (and LL of the highest order. You need two hands to make an L on your forehead).
However, there are some items that I highly approve of. And lately my approval has been stuck to these shoes:
Silver hightops make any outfit 95% more sensationelle! to use a French vocabulary word. (Little sidenote here: French has got to be the most useless class I have ever taken. We are now learning about describing food in words such as spectacular! baked to perfection! and drizzled with four kinds of cheese! As if I ever need to know. Honestly.) Ratty tshirts and jeans are suddenly 'best dressed list' worthy. LBDs and tights are make effortlessly low-key. And sneakers are much more comfortable than any pair of flats you can throw at me.

Good old moccasins. There were moccasin booties at the Museum of Civilation's giftshop in Ottawa, and I'm seriously regretting not getting any. Especially since they were $50 and these ones are $80+. There was also a pair of knitted boots at the Byward Market, that I also didn't get. Heaven frown on whatever being that prevented me from these footwear!

Hightops from Urban Outfitters, Moccasins from Aldo.

Covet is the Wrong Word

Lovely friends, I apologize for my prolonged, much more than 2 weeks absence. Not unlike the cute guy who does everything to get you and then dumps you (like that JoJo song.. but not as lame).

I've been job hunting (again). My 6-month stint at a clothing store was fun, but it's time to move on. And to feed my literary side, I've been applying at bookstores. Hopefully everything will turn out well, but in the meantime, it's great to dream about it. Very Audrey in Funny Face, before she turned all supermodel.
Of course I would need a pair of tortoiseshell glasses, but in addition:

Not quite Annie Hall or Katharine Hepburn, but honestly, I could never wear a vest. Or a fedora for that matter. Functionality trumps 'trendiness'.
