Shakedown


All dressed up for my Saturday morning errands! I'm becoming accustomed to getting a lot of funny looks on public transportation (presumably) for being so 'dressed up', but it doesn't bother me anymore in the slightest. Simply, I love my clothes too much to save them for a special occasion. I wear these Prada boots pretty much every day!

I added another to my official collection of "stolen posters of concerts I attended". My friends and I came too late and only caught the last few minutes of the opening act, but we kept heckling 'Sexdwarf' because their name is so silly. In between Sexdwarf and Spirits, the venue played Doolittle by the Pixies and it made me awfully excited! I kept up the heckling by yelling at Spirits to cover a Pixies song, but sadly, they ignored me. Maybe next time?

i consider the funny looks a postive thing, they make life more exciting. Your vest/dress is easily one of the greatest things i've ever seen

Miss Red said...

Bianca and Isabella said...

gooodneess i am so in love with your style.

AFitz said...

aw damn, sexdwarf is what i wanted to name MY band

Rhiannon said...

Ha ha, Sexdwarf!!! That's the best band name I've heard in ages.

Also why on earth are people giving you funny looks about that outfit? It's really great--I love how it's dressy/casual and a little tough.

R. said...

oooh, great outfit! It's a shame that everyone wants to wear sweatpants all the time and looking stylish like you is somehow weird. I often wish I lived in a time and place where dressing up was necessary when leaving the house.

diane said...

!. Your outfit is outstanding, it made me grin to see how awesome you look.
2. Cool poster. Loooove the white horses.
3. The first time Cute Hubby laid eyes on me, I was heckling a comedian at a nite club. He knew I was trouble from the get go when I made the comedian wear my cowboy hat through the rest of his act.

Loving the dress :-D Xxxc

nicole.nicolson said...

Heh. Spirits are some acquaintances of mine from Hamilton. They're the ones who played at that Pixies show I told you about.

Diane said...

Oh, this outfit is too freaking good. Remember how I said that last ensemble of yours was my fave? Well, now this one is. And I'm not just being overly nice - you're truly rocking this. You are queen of the drapes!

I've noticed that little kids looooovvee to stare at the shorter side of my hair, especially when I get it newly shaved. I don't mind it, though, kids'll be kids.

Fashion Cappuccino said...

I really love the dress you're wearing and those Prada boots rock! xxooxxo

hannahlizabeth said...

i wholly endorse your dressing up for public transport!

i'm sick of getting funny looks for wearing heels to uni. gorgeous clothes = happy mood. slobbish clothes = the opposite.

The more weird looks you're getting the better you look, obviously :)

Laura @ effluvia said...

Likin' the dress :)

Xu Box said...

I got my polka dot shirt from salvation army but it has no make on it, there is no tag whatsoever. Which is almost better, cuz it makes me feel like someone made that shirt especially for me.
I love your jacket, it's so military and very handsome.
I heart the Pixies are doing a reunion tour and they're going to play Doolittle (my favorite Pixies album)from start to finish. Get excited, Isabel!
