Winter Update.




Sorry for my extremely long absence from the blogosphere. Things have been absolutely crazy. I have been working two jobs and doing full time school to boot. Here are some photos from a photo shoot I did at the beginning of the month with an absolutely wonderful local photographer, Glen Co. He was so much fun to work with and he is incredibly talented.   To check out his website click here!

Back to School.




Dress- Aritzia (Wilfred), Beanie- American Apparel,  Bralette- American Apparel, Watch- Daniel Wellington

 Another all black outfit! I'm sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately, I have started school again which makes it difficult to find time to take photos. Aside from trying to find time to take photos, finding money to buy clothes to take outfit pictures is also terribly difficult... When I do have money I spend it on my art projects and those can get quite pricey really quickly. I'm hoping to find another job soon so hopefully that will help me in the money department, but it certainly won't help me in the "lack of time to do anything" department.

Back to the whole "all black everything thing." Last year a teacher had asked me if my clothing was a part of my artistic practice and it really made me think a lot. I like to be fully immersed in my art so I decided I would find a way of working my clothing into my practice. My practice consists of mainly minimal, conceptual sculptures so "minimal" became a key word to me when it comes to what I wear. What better way to minimize your wardrobe than to eliminate all colours?

So now when I'm at school I try to mostly just wear black but I have to admit that I do cheat a bit and wear some grey or white sometimes. Sometimes I even get a little wild and switch it up with a little brown... But all black is my staple. 

Happy Wednesday!

Textures





Sweater- Springsioux, Skirt- Sirens, Shoes- Arnold Churgin, Bag-Arnold Churgin, Sunglasses- Little Burgundy

I love this outfit a lot more now that I see it in pictures. I love all black with a mix of textures! I don't normally wear skirts this short but the long portion helps me feel like it's not too revealing. The sweater I purchased last month while I was in Paris from an absolutely wonderful shop called Springsioux. All of their clothing is absolutely stunning and the quality is outstanding. If you ever find yourself shopping in Paris do make a stop over there, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the merchandise is so beautiful. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Springsioux. 

The  handbag was a wonderful rediscovery for me. I had purchased it two years ago when I first started working for Arnold Churgin, it was the very first purchase I made there and it's absolutely beautiful. It's not super trendy so even though I bought it two years ago I still love it. Don't you love when you rediscover old things in your closet that you completely forgot about?

Happy Monday!

On Hand.


I have a hard time coming to terms with colour so I never wear nail polish. I am currently hunting for the perfect nude, maybe YSL's BEIGE GALLERY from their fall 13 collection?

 Anyways, this is what my hands look like lately. All of my rings are sterling silver and have slowly been collected over time, each of my rings and bracelets are sentimental and special to me in some way. When I was young and dancing whenever I won a championship for highland dancing I would buy a ring to remember it, therefore, from a really young age I became accustomed to wearing a lot of rings. I even learned how to tell my left from my right by wearing a ring on my right hand at the age of 6 or 7.  I've never been one to buy a ton of jewellery and switch it out constantly. When I like a piece of jewelry I wear it 24/7 until it breaks or I grow absolutely sick of it. Some people like to switch their jewelry daily and others like to wear theirs everyday 24/7 like me.

What's your relationship with jewelry like? Do you wear the same one pieces everyday or do you like to switch it up?

Happy Friday!

Gray Scale




 It's waaayy too hot in Calgary right now to be wearing this outfit, but I was so in love with this cape that I just couldn't wait to wear it... I found this at the least likely store ever. I saw it in the window display at Bellissima while I was walking around the mall on my lunch break and I just had to have it. It's gray on one side and it's black on the inside and the material is so soft it's to die for.

I hope your day is going well!

-Happy Friday!

This Happened



Sweater- Vince, Tank top- vintage, Shoes- Arnold Churgin, Sunglasses- Little Burgundy

These photos maybe don't really showcase my outfit all that well, but I am  absolutely loving the wall that they were shot in front of. If you get a chance you should check out XYZ's instagram @itsXYZ he is one of the artists who painted this wall. I get paid tomorrow and I will hopefully be doing a little shopping soon so there will be more outfit posts to come!

Happy Wednesday!
