Here Comes the Sun. Kicking and Screaming and Not at all Willing.

Readers, I think you know that I get very attached to some fashion items when I see them in store. Shoes, for example. Let’s just say one was looking for black stilettos  and came across a pair that worked and was at a good price point. Let us imagine that shortly after, another pair of stilettos was spotted, and that this second pair just had something that nice, cute, affordable pair did not have. And also were way, way out of a reasonable price range. That, of course, is the pair I would deem the perfect pair of black stilettos.

And so.

My romance with this vest was sort of like an arranged marriage.  I was not present for the initial meeting with it.  When my mom described the perfect suitor  to me after her visit to the mall in March, I knew it was true love.  The forever kind.  Handsome.  Sleek.  Avante-garde. But like any romance, there were obstacles:  I was broke.  I couldn’t get to the mall.  I knew another girl would snap up this dreamboat in a flash! I cried. Desperately, I enlisted the help of all of my family to seal the deal.

At last, I brought my true love home.

It’s a love story, baby just say yes

It is cold where I am. Cold! I’ve been just waiting for a chance to start wearing spring clothing.

Okay, I’ve been wearing it anyway.

If Spring won’t come to me, then I will come to it. Dressed for it. Insistent. Whether Spring likes it or not.

Yes, this is what fashion does to me. I blame Vogue— I’m seeing all these spring trends and spring clothing and I can’t wait to wear it.

Today I went for All You Can Eat Sushi with a friend at a place called Sushi Kui in the St. Andrew’s Plaza in Aurora, north of Toronto. Since I’ve been waiting for a day appropriate to wear this vest, I took the opportunity today. Sushi Kui was rumoured among area sushi lovers to be the best sushi in the area, so we had to find out for ourselves. It was so good, we both gorged ourselves!

Just a fraction of the amount of sushi we ate, but I was so focused on eating that I forgot to get a picture of the whole meal!

White leather vests and jackets are a huge trend for spring–preferably biker style.

What I wore to go for lunch:

    • White leatherette vest – H&M
    • Red and white striped shirt – Forever XXI
    • Red jeans – Hollister
    • Combat boots – Bare traps
    • Shark tooth necklace – Forever XXI
    • Leatherette bag – Aldo

  4. You look nice! And so does the sushi. 🙂 I like your music references too. A while back, it was “Jailhouse Rock.” I remember because you had to remind me where the line came from … and now the Beatles. Sweet!

  7. The second photo is a little disturbing. What’s that black thing in the background? If you’re going to dispose of a body in your back yard, you shouldn’t go taking photos of it. Tsk, tsk.

  8. Lovely blog darling!!! A big kiss from a new follower!!! Simona
