"I look so hipster"

Eric and I
H&M leather jacket, AA viscose tank, AA lamé leggings, Tory Burch Reva flats(not shown), Jacob scarf, F21 hand warmers, Balenciaga (not shown) and Ray-Bans
Eric: He only told me that his skinny tie is from Simons in Montreal

The girls; I wish I had a full length shot of my outfit, but this was the best picture I had

Eric aka my partner in crime and I have this unhealthy obsession of coordinating outfits when we go out for dinner. I don't even have to ask what he's going to wear because we always end up complimenting each other...somehow. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we're both hipsters in denial. He dresses like Brent Bolthouse...all he needs is the black leather jacket and he is set. Last night we had dinner at East Side Marios..and I didn't think my faux fur coat was appropriate so I opted for a more casual, rocker chic look. Pairing my outfit down with a leather jacket, white tank, lamé leggings and topped it off with yellow flats. I love a burst of colour in an almost monochromatic look. I also whipped out the scarf as it was a little chilly after dinner, and my non-fuctional hand warmers.

"You look like a street fighter." thanks

Happy 21 K :)

These Boots Were Made For..Tromping In The Snow

Jacket- Urban Behaviour, Top- Industry (from Bamboo Ballroom), Leggings- AA, Bag- Balenciaga, Boots- Vintage,

Closeup of the accessories

Beret- F21, Scarf-Missoni, Rings- F21

The prefered uniform of a university student consists mainly of an Abercrombie and Fitch sweater and jeans tucked into UGGS. Sure, that looks okay but I hate looking like everyone else. I went thrifting and ended up with a sweet pair of cowboy boots. To my surprise, they were Frye and were already broken in. I was so excited to wear them, and then the unthinkable happened. It snowed. I was totally bummed, but this is Edmonton and you learn to deal with the weather and dress how you want to dress anyway. Like -30C weather and a little snow is going to stop me from wearing leggings. It should have though, because I froze my butt off waiting for the bus..I did, however, get compliments :) But accessories are your best friend in this type of weather, so I opted for a cute beret to keep my head warm and a Missoni scarf.
