Vancouver (and some times Los Angeles) weirdo wears stuff, takes pictures, makes fashion blog.

Oh Deer!

I've been sitting on this photoset forever.

By forever I mean it's from this January!

It was actually one of the first sets that I ever shot for this blog, but never got around to posting it because I'm not quite sure what to say about it. It's so maximum me, but also so extra that it's not something I would wear out casually.

Woodland creatures? Check. Golden antlers? Check. Crazy good make up that doesn't look all too heavy in photos but I felt like my face was entirely painted on? Check. Clothing pieces that are half borrowed? Check check mate. Not that I'm complaining or anything, this was probably one of the most complete and well put together shoots for my blog ever.

The flocked sheer shirt was instant love when I saw it -- if you look closely, you can see deer lurking in the storybook like pattern! It was a I-must-have-this-immediately-even-if-I-don't-have-anything-to-wear-it-with purchase. That was, until I brought it to my friend Pauline's house.

Let me just tell you, it is really amazing to have an amazing friend who would a) let me scavenge through her closet to find things that match, b) do my hair and make up, and c) take these photos for me even though I was awkward AF when I first started this blog.

So, we came up with this look in January, and to this day it's still one of my favorites despite the fact that it hasn't been posted until now. I was busy stewing over what exactly I can say about it this whole time, when it's blatantly obvious: teamwork is precious.

It's been seven months now, time is flying by, and I'm about to go visit Pauline again soon in LA. So much has happened between then and now: life changes, job changes, ch-ch-ch-changes everywhere. Some are good, some dragged me kicking and screaming into new frontiers. But at the end of the day, I'm still a sucker for pink woodland animals and thigh high socks.

The year is more than half over, how have you changed?

  2. This outfit is truly a dream, and you look so beautiful. This is one of my favorites of yours for sure. Isn't it funny how when we are hesitant and unsure of our own work, others often find it inspiring? Hah. So it goes.

    I feel like I have definitely changed over the course of this year, especially because of the big move to Portland. I'm stronger, more confident, learning to let things roll off my back instead of losing my shit (that one has been tough), but I feel like a better me. That's good right? :)

    Hope you are having a wonderful Summer. <3
