Anyways, wore my new Zara tee and Trivium wedges with basic black aa leggings. Such a comfy outfit.
I got the following things at the thrift stores. I'm still wearing this cardigan while writing this, it's way too comfy and soft. I love the button details. I got the big red and gold necklace for $4, such a steal.
Have a great weekend!

Anyways, as promised, my 200th post is dedicated to my shopping trip. Spent most of the day at the local mall, Rideau Centre, with my friend (and beloved photographer) Anna. I got these shoes (shown in outfit pictures) from Trivium, the gothic store. Their shoe selection is really great! Anyhoo, the curve in the heel reminds me of the popular YSL heels (although their curve is on the bottom, not the back). Know what I'm talking about?
The only disappointment of the day was that my main reason for going was to get a pair of leather-like leggings from Aritzia and they had some creamy-tan ones in stock, and they were goooorgeous, but too small. Oh poop! I cheered myself up though with a "dark chocolate decadence" drink from the Godiva store though, so it's ok hahaha.

And now onto the very exciting things: new clothes! As well as the shoes above, I purchased the following two shirts from Aritzia. I absolutely love this store and even though it can be overpriced (...aka very often but still love it) I got these on sale and had giftcards from Christmas so it was all good! They're both sheer (the pink top much more so) so I'm going to have to figure out something there. Anyways, the first is a long sleeve dark blue top with small stud detailing on the front chest part and a small hole on the back. The second is a slightly cropped (you can't see belly, it's just shorter than normal shirts but a lot wider too) lilac shirt. Reminds me of mohair (is that the right word?).
The following things are from Zara! The first is a semi-sheer (why do I buy so much sheer stuff?) t-shirt that would look great with pants or a skirt but is long enough to wear over opaque leggings. The second photo has my new jacket/blazer/thingy with slight shoulder detailing; it's a little poof, better pictures to come. It also has my high-waisted faux-leather skirt (looove!).
All-in-all, a pretty successful shopping day!

Anyways, depending on how long you've been with me here you may or may not remember some of these. I remember the day the last photo was taken, it had poured rain right before the pictures were taken and my hair and bangs were stick-stick straight. Ugh. Anyhoo, I had a few others I wanted to add but I was trying to keep the list short so here it is. Do any of you have any "favourite looks" on your blog? If so, leave a link because I'd love to see it!

Write now I'm just relaxing, taking a breather before continuing to study for my philosophy exam Monday. That one will be.... well, let's just say it'll be a "make or break" type of mark. Speaking of which, I want to watch "Make it or Break it" now. Fortunately, I'm watching Golden Girls at this very moment! Dorothy's lesbian friend Jean is visiting.
Anyways, this is what I wore to write my exam:
These were another Christmas gift from my father but we had to return them because they were about half a size too small. I just love the crazy colours and patterns! I'm going to be changing the laces to either the orange or the purple ones... maybe both?
This is my cat, Catrina. She kept trying to sneak into the pictures so I just took one of her.

Just finished watching Golden Girls (I'm obsessed now), watching CSI, should be studying. My english exam is tomorrow and I haven't looked over any notes; though in truth, I don't have any notes. I really just have to memorize quotes from the books, not too difficult. Philosophy on Monday, that should be.. interesting. Well, I know what my weekend will be like.
How about all of you? Any plans?

Anyhoo, I got asked by two people if my feet were bleeding because the last time I wore these tights I wore my red heels from Le Chateau and the colour sort of rubbed off. Fail.

Found this sweater in my dad's closet, asked for it/demanded it by saying he doesn't wear long sleeves. It's oversized and the sleeves are a few inches too long but it's super comfy!
I have to go study terms and philosophers now... tell me readers, do any of you have special studying techniques? I still don't have one (I just repeat aloud until I can remember it...) so I'm wondering what works for you? What doesn't?

Just watching "Golden Girls" right now; I've become obsessed. Blanche is too funny and Rose reminds me of a friend of mine. I love them so much.
These two are just pictures of me all bundled up for my walk home from school:

AAAAAALSO: I still have to hear back from three universities, two of which being my top choices, but I got into Laurentian! (which is basically my second choice so YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!! =D) I'm happy that I can have a future, hahaha

Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those "sit on the couch and eat chocolate bar after chocolate bar" type of people but I'm not "Oh it's five am, got to go running!" either. I don't want to get thin, I want to get fit. Make sense? Ugh I'm just ranting now...

PS-> it's ridiculous how pale I am, seriously.
