Tin Foil and Velvet


(how much for that doggy in the window?)


Top: Urban Outfitters dress worn as a top with DIY’s tin foil dots (buy similar here and here)
Shorts: Wilfred via Aritzia (buy similar here and here)
Cardigan: American Apparel (buy similar here and here)
Boots: Tinley Road via Piperlime (buy similar here and here)
Beanie: Borrowed from my boyfriend! (buy similar here)

SHOP THE LOOK:

Oh hey, fancy meeting you here. Do you come here often? Probably not, I only just started posting again! Ha-ha I am so comical. Anyway, it’s pretty much Christmas break so I am FREE from the stresses of classes and PRISONER to the stresses of work, writing, photography, blogging, and design!!! Those are my favourite things.

Anyway, if you’ve been around these parts at all, you’ll have noticed that I’ve already done not one but two #MarcTheDot x Lookbook.nu collaboration posts over the past few months. This is my final look, and probably my favourite one, too! Unfortunately for me, I’ll never get to actually wear this outside of my living quarters. The top is not really the most practical thing ever; it’s thrown together using tin foil and scotch tape. Maybe one day I will have the time to purchase real sequins to sew on a mesh tank, but we all know this is never going to happen. I have so many DIY ideas dancing around in my head that they can do one of those fun flash mobs amidst the other busy thoughts in there. What am I even talking about right now?

Moving forward. I paired it with a new pair of shorts I got at Aritzia, and a lazy cardigan my boyfriend bought me at American Apparel. I’m also wearing my favourite boots of all time, soon to be replaced by the three new pairs of shoes I got at the Solestruck sale!!! I am being so bad with my money lately. But it’s the Holidays, so I am allowed.

Looking back on this post I’m realizing I’m the most scatter-brained person on the face of the planet. Just kidding, there are probably people worse than me. God bless their souls.

    I found a similar dress, but from Forever 21. The paillettes aren’t as bright as yours, but thought you might like to have a look anyway :)
