Blazer: Thrift $4, Jeans: Value Village: $8, Boots: Spring $15, Shirt: Bootlegger $5
I dont know what it is about this blazer but everytime i take outfit photos with it i always really like them!! i have worn it twice before (here, here) and much to my dismay this outfit is pretty much the exact same as the second one but oh well. I have had the blazer for three years and there was a time when i almost threw it away because i didnt like how long it was, crazy right now that is what i like the best about it!! I went through a faze last year were i didnt wear jeans or pants ever for about eight months (pretty much froze the entire winter) because i am not fond of how they fit and make my legs look. But now i have kindof accepted that is just the way they are and am totally loving jeans, i would also really like to find a nice pair of of skinny green cargo pants. I got these boots the other day in the mail and can you believe the price, with tax they came to fifteen dollars, i was so excited!!! Online shoe stores have been having great sales lately, i just cant resist them. This is a very special post because i am featuring my sister on here for the very first time (pictures below)!! She has fab style and i always want to steal something she is wearing. I love to go thrift shopping with her, you get us into Value Village together and we are there for a good solid two to three hours. She is wearing her new Americal Apparel pants which are awesome, she did say i could borrow them (wahoo) i think they would look pretty damn sweet with my leather jacket :). I hope everyone had a lovely afternoon!

Blazer: Value Village $8, Shirt: really old??, Skirt: Urban Behaviour $10, Shoes: Spring $25
I have had these pictures for a little while and i had decided not post them because the outfit is rather blah and i was having major flash problems that day everything whited out!! But i wont be able to get out to take photos for a little while and i wanted to keep some regular posting schedule so here they are. I bought this skirt in the summer, i couldnt resist the fact it was bodycon and dark plum colour. I am totally banning myself from buying anymore of that type skirts i counted my collection the other day and i own about seven so thats seems like enough for now lol. Although one night when i was up way to late looking through ebay i did purchase a bodycon dress from h&m which i kindof shake my head at now, i am crossing my fingers that it will look alright. I think i might have to reserve it for the very rare ocasions i go out but i will take outfit photos once it comes in the mail :). I hope everyone had a good day!!

Cardigan: Thrift $7, Purse: Value Village $8, Crop Top: $7, Skirt: Fairweathers $15, Boots: Spring $42
Dont you just love receiving packages in the mail, it is always so exciting when you go to the post office and one is there. A few weeks ago i was contacted by Misikko customer service about reviewing their Hana 1.5" Flat Iron which i was thrilled to try out. As you can see from my other outfit photos my hair is normally pretty wavy, my hair routine at the moment is to shower, brush my bangs and let the rest do its own thing. This was definitely the Best Hair Straightener i have ever used without a doubt. I am ashamed to admit but i have only used total cheapies from Wall Mart or drug stores where your hair would get caught in the jagged plates and you would totally have to yank it out in huge sections. I havent straightened my hair in months so i was kindof shocked how different I looked!!! It left my hair really straight, shiny and soft, i made my sister touch it to prove my point which might have gotten a response somewhere along the lines of you are a weirdo lol but she did agree with me. Overall it is a excellent straightener and Misikko customer service was awesome, very fast shipping especially to Canada and there is a picture below which shows the pretty packaging :). The only con i can think of is they are a bit on the pricey side especially if you are totally broke like me. But as far as investing in good quality hair products goes definitely check out their website and other products like the original chi flat iron which from the online reviews i read sounds great as well.
here, here) it is definitely one of my favourite staple items. I do like the whole crop top thing although i would never be brave enough to wear them with anything that wasnt high waisted. This was definitely my longest post ever (anyone who read it all good for you!!), i hope everyone is having a good weekend :).

Jacket: Gift, Shirt: Ebay $8, Shorts: Thrift $2, Tights: Ardenes $3, Boots: Aldo $52
I bought this Ramones tshirt a few months ago on ebay. I totally love the band tshirt thing but i never wear this one becuase to be honest it just smells funky!!!! That is definitely one of the pitfalls of ebay although i havent had a problem before. I did google ways to remove the smell but nothing seems to have worked so i figured maybe if i wore it out and about more it would lessen. That logic didnt seem to work to well so i think the shirt will have to go back to the bottom of my dresser, how depressing :(. As you can see i have been in a bit of a shorts/ denim faze lately although I cant make up my mind whether or not the white shorts really go with this outfit. They are one of my best thrifting deals (Guess shorts for two dollars, what a bargain!!) and but the flash totally whited them out despite my best editing efforts. I think my blue denim shorts would probably have looked better with the rest of the outfit. Is anyone else really excited for fall fashion!!! I have definitely been into pants and jeans lately so a inspiration post will be coming very soon. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend :).
