Arting




Dress: Brandy Melville, Cardigan: Brandy Melville, Hat: American Apparel, Boots: Arnold Churgin

Today was a critique day...
Every Tuesday is a critique day for me this semester, with many other critiques scheduled throughout the week so it's going to be a very busy year for me. Aside from that I work every single day that I do not have school and I am already feeling overwhelmed. So overwhelmed that hiding and avoiding it all often feel like a wonderful solution. Thus the inspiration for the two artworks pictured above. I will try to take a photograph with my work every week so that I can document my work and also make a blog post at the same time. Multitasking is key.

B(l)ack to School Lookbook


It's been a really long time since I've posted on the blog and I have really missed it. It's such a wonderful place to post fashion related things and share it with like-minded individuals. I have gone back to school and recently started a new job. I feel that I might slowly go a little bit crazy because I am currently either working or going to school every single day. Once I get into the flow of it though, I am sure that I'll be fine. I know school has already started but I thought I would post a lookbook that I recently made with my friend Jill with some different back to school outfits. So far I think that it's my favourite thing that I've posted on youtube and I definitely hope to take my channel down more of a fashion route in the future.

I am also thinking that  it's time to update my blog. In the future I am thinking of going for more minimal aesthetics and I might even work in some images of artwork that I have been working on lately. Taking this blog into more of a lifestyle blog would be really exciting to me and is something that I am absolutely interested in doing.

Hope you're having a wonderful day!

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!
