Sleep deprived, yet I still derive.

"EPIPHANY: I will be graduating high school in approximately 3 MONTHS inshallah!"

Thank you  for your cooperation. We will now resume regular programming.

The promise of my vintage shopping experience documentation will actually be fulfilled in the next post--I didn't end up wearing my vintage dress, so just you wait, blogosphere!

Interesting/thought-provoking/bizarre/good/bad/otherwise note-worthy occurrences this/last week in this life of mine:
  • recited some slam poetry/spoken word in front of a LIVING, BREATHING AUDIENCE in a funky, eclectic cafe in Vancouver {because of a fundraiser/celebration with the Surrey Urban Youth Project}
  •   THIS song became my guilty pleasure [beware--teeny-bopper-y]: 

  •  Well that's all I can think of, quite honestly. Such an interesting life I lead, huh? But this seems like a nice permanent installment to my blogeddy blog de blog.

Technically, I haven't worn this outfit out of the house. I was playing around with that vintage cobalt blue shirt I picked up during said vintage shopping experience, and snapped a photo. Potential outfit for the public eye, yeah, yeah, yeah?
  • shirt: True Value Vinatge (in Vancouver), $5
  • dress: Joe Fresh, $3
  • heels: thrifted via Salvation Army: $2.50
  • stirrup tights: from my childhood, yessir.
  • purse: gifted via Urban Behaviour

Monday outfit!:

  • shirt: H&M, $ dumbo sis bought it 'cause it was on sale...even though it's an XL. Cheapness runs in the family, yo. Eh, nothing a coupla belts can't fix. ;)
  • purple belt: thrifted via a random Vancouver thrift shop, $1
  • yellow belt: Joe Fresh, $3
  • flats: Joe Fresh, $6
  • pink heart necklace worn to death: James & Jules, $2

Tuesday Outfit!:
  •  pants: Joe Fresh, $?
  • blue shiny shirt: thrifted via Salvation Army, $5...also worn here
  • plaid vest: DIY, cut it from a dress from my prepubescent days
  • kick ass boots: thrifted via Salvation Army, $4

Wednesday Outfit!:

  •  kick ass sneaks: Reebok
  • grey dress: Old Navy, $5
  • denim vest: thrifted via Value Village, $2

    Thursday Outfit!:

    [Ignore my face, ewewew]. This outfit, I thought, was rather blah, but I received quite a bit of compliments! People said I looked NORMAL. I was horrified, but they assured me that I looked NORMAL *wince*, but nice. So.
    •  gilttery, YES, GLITTERY silver jeans: Ross, $2!    
    • blue flats: Joe Fresh, $3   
    • jewelery: Forever 21, Suzy Shier, thrifted, Claire's, Pakistan, etc.  

    And finally, what I wore during said Spoken Word Performance:

    • hot pink blazer: thrifted via a random thrift store in Vancouver for a cool five bucks!
    • other items: you've seen before.
