The age old question: Converse or Vans? The answer: Neither, buy these Simple shoes. I bought them because they're eco-friendly and I don't have a pair of quality sneakers that isn't made of canvas. Ahh yes, and the 50% off sticker didn't hurt.
Yesterday was the epic St. Vincent's bag sale. If you ever get the chance - go. You can fill a shopping bag for $3 and with the amount of stuff you can fit in there, each piece ends up costing around 25 cents. I got a ton of items that need altering before they can be displayed but my absolute favourite thrift find was this zip-up plaid jumper. I think it was a school uniform in a past life and I freaking love it.
I have wanted a pair of high-waisted shorts for a while, so it was a pleasant surprise to see this mega-1980s pair on the rack. The black crochet vest was also from the bag sale - I had seen it at the store before but waited for today to make my move.
Jelly shoes can be hit or miss, but the circumstances were right: They're silver, cheap and fit perfectly in my bag.
Now I'm off to sew frantically for the rest of the day and pack more things in boxes for my big move. (Yes, University.) Sometimes I can be organized to the point of anality...
Oh yes. Today is the last day to vote for me in the Reporter Search that I am going to lose. Sad but true - at least I have no delusions.
