Why do you let me stay here?


The weather is starting to chill down, but I don't mind at all because that just means I can wear all of my weird sweaters again! How cool is this sweater dress? The beading looks like a cross between a scarab beetle and a royal crown. Apparently a friend of mine saw me from afar on campus today, and even though she only caught a brief glimpse she knew it was me because I was wearing a baggy sweater, thermal socks and Doc Martens. I am so predictable, it's awesome.

Also, I'd thought I'd share this picture of me outside the crazy architecture of the Royal Ontario Museum when I went to Toronto last Sunday.

You can't really see the details, but I'm wearing a grey beaded sweater from Tavi, pink dress from the Stylish Wanderer, tights and button-up ankle boots.

That doesn't make you predictable, it makes you distinguishable. I envy your green sweater dress so much! You and I are such sweater freaks!

Love your beaded sweater! The green is delicious. The Museum looks amazing also, I love extravagant architecture, there should be more it.

(The internet should arrive today, fingers crossed; I currently skip from cafe to cafe, staying for an obscenely long time to use their wifi whilst only buying cheap cookies and tea) xx

I know just what you mean about the love of winter clothes. I've been coming up with some great looks too, but unfortunately Babyzilla isn't old enough to photograph me.
The scattered beading above the "scarob" is awesome. You really do have a signature look. xo

At first I wasn't sure if you were quoting She & Him, but then I saw the last post before this, and now I know you completely were.

That's a sweet sweater dress. Beautiful beading can be hard to come across, but you found it.

Amelia said...

It's definitely fine to be predictable when it looks this good! I want that dress :)

Kylie said...

The shape of the sweater dress is just perfect. And that colour I'm really digging... and I usually don't care about colour at ALL. All around sweet find!

And who cares if your predictable? If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
