Don’t kill me!
I can’t stop my thrifting addiction. On the bright side, I’m paying like 15% of the original costs, so it isn’t as bad.
I will be doing a giveaway in the near future, so if you aren’t already subscribed to me on YouTube, now is your chance.
People keep telling me that the colours in this shirt are so bright that it hurts their eyes. But answer to that is – well, I like it. I’m still having issues with how to style my new hair cut, but I find it the most flattering when I curl all my ends towards my face.
Top: Babaton (Aritzia)
Pants: American Apparel
Looking for a way to make your clothing more edgy? … or just less plain? Try using studs to jazz up your articles of clothing. It’s really easy, and you don’t need anything other than the pieces of clothing you want to DIY, studs, and a pair of scissors or butter knife with a hard (not sharp) edge.
Tip: Different types of studs give different effects. (ie. cone studs look more modern, while pyramid studs are more like 80’s rock)
Have fun with it.
As a DIY enthusiast, it is unfortunate that I don’t enjoy hand sewing at all. I’m constantly doing clothing projects that require hemming. I don’t know about you but I get easily frustrated when it comes to hemming pants and skirts.
So I’m sharing my lazy secret with you all: hemming tape! It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and will last just as long as hand sewn seams.
Again, I picked up this hemming tape from R.J. McCarthy’s but you can also buy it from any craft store (such as Michael’s) or Walmart.
So it has been quite a while since I’ve posted on my blog. I’ve been spending the last few months recollecting myself and sorting out my priorities. But I’m hoping I’ll have more time to spend on here.
Without further ado, I present to you part 1 (above) of my Forever 21/thrift/Boathouse haul and part 2 (below).
What I’m wearing:
- Tank from Supreme
- Cardigan from Urban Planet
If you have any requests, feel free to let me know and I’ll try my best to accommodate them!
Now that I’m finishing up my very last semester of university ever, you would think I would think thrice before making purchases… but let me tell you girl, 80% of this stuff was freebies from my internship. And while I’m on that note, I’m happy to say I got contracted for an extra month! This time, I’m getting paid. Woohoo!
Anywho, back to the items! (clockwise from the bottom left): Eddie Bauer sleeveless button up – $3 (Value Village), Juicy Couture Sebastian leggings – $25 (Winners), H&M dip hem sleeveless – $13, Crochet vintage t-shirt sweater – $5 (Value Village), Old Navy jean jacket (that I d.i.y’d) – $10 (Value Village), H&M ribbed short-sleeved cardi – $4 (Value Village), H&M leopard print scarf – $1 (Value Village)
- Love this Eddie Bauer shirt with my gold chain necklaces. It works with my Kreayshawn-inspired wardrobe.
- Above, I passed by H&M while on a run for my internship, and could not leave without picking these up. I still had money leftover on a giftcard my bub gave me for Christmas so these were basically free 🙂 Thanks bubbi! I got a chiffon sleeveless top. It has a dip hem in the back, and it ties in the front differently. It’s a lot different than the stuff I have in my closet.
- I work part-time at Value Village so of course I need to shop there too 🙂
I got a few products from Simple, who recently made their break into the Canadian market, as well as my first Physician’s Formula product, and a few Mark items (all courtesy of my internship) Hurray!
(Clockwise from bottom left): Simple’s Soothing Eye Balm, Simple’s Replenishing Rich Moisturizer, Simple’s Cleansing Facial Wipes, Simple’s Vital Vitamin Moisturizing Day Cream (all their products is amazing for sensitive skin), Physician’s Formula Correcting Bronzer, Mark’s Keep It Going Longwear Eye Liner & Shadow in Paradiso and Naturalist.
I’m sure I’ll do product reviews for these later on, so stay tuned for that!
