Creepy Crawly


Completely exhausted after a long day at the Art Gallery of Ontario with an old friend (Hi Patrick!), but I am now the proud owner of a beautiful pair of black suede creepers!! It's kind of sad that I needed these so badly that they were haunting my dreams and I had to take a Greyhound to the closest big city to get my hands on them but they are MINE ALL MINE NOW.

In other excellent news, I think I've figured out my style direction for Fall! It's all about "schoolgirl skank" aka wearing clunky shoes, awkward school uniform socks and button-down shirts with real sexy pencil skirts. Like that fast kind of girl who brings a change of clothes in her backpack every day so she can dress to impress...

I have also felt the burning desire to own creepers. I found a pair at the thrift store and I swear it was like a spiritual experience.

Also, I love this look on you!

that grey dress is super cute!
i always liked creepers on other people but felt they weren't 'me', whatever that means.. maybe one day... is there such a thing as pastel yellow and white creepers? because that I would do

Dodo said...

That first dress is really cute! I love the shape!

Magnet said...

Nice outfits... my inspiration for my style in general lately has also been something along the lines of school girl. Except I will be going in the full skirts, over the knee socks direction.

SCHOOLGIRLSKANK LOOKS GUUUUUUD.

I still don't have creepers.. but i'm one of those girls who knows when it's time.. a pair will be waiting for me within arm's reach. right now.. i'll just settle for my multiple pairs of flat boots.

Marlena said...
