BLACK AND WHITE

 

Alright, I won't lie.. I think its pretty its pretty obvious as well, so here goes... "Hi my name is Fiona and I am addicted to leather". Most of you can see by now a recurring theme in my wardrobe and that most of my outfits have some sort of leather piece or accent to it. I can't help it but everytime I shop, its the only thing that I am drawn to and my friends are always telling me that I need to stop since my closet could probably reclothe a couple cattles. But just like all addictions, I really can't stop myself and here I am featuring leather again.

TWEEDLEDUM AND TWEEDLEDEE


I feel exactly like the description Lewi Carroll described, fat and little. So I've started doing the classic insanity workout and it is intense! I've tried keeping up with it every single day but sometimes school and work just makes it tough to schedule in such an intense workout. And everything else too is just becoming quite crazy, my schedule is so completely filled to the brim that I'm literally losing track of what day it is so much so that I think I've written out the exact same to do list over and over again. Hopefully I'll be able to juggle work and a social life as classy as coco chanel herself, as for now I'll just try to channel a little bit of her into my wardrobe.

This Years Fashion




Monochrome and the minimalistic style has always been a running trend in fashion often just weaving in and out in the background not creating such a huge sudden hype as certain colours or patterns do but rather is just always a constant. And I am so happy that more and more attention is being paid to simple shades because although I love colour, I'd much rather wear black and white and let shapes and the rest of me do the talking. Also, comfort to me is key and I will most definitely be rocking the chic joggers/sweats look.

MIDI RIFFS AND PHRASES


The one thing that people are constantly in the search for besides love and happiness is music. I am always looking for new music to listen to since I tend to put my recently added on repeat 24/7 until I can no longer stand listening to them and then I am stranded. Recently I've gotten into a more soul, R&B pop type music and my favourite artist at the moment is Delilah. Venturing into new things, I have finally accepted the fact that I will most likely never grow taller and that maybe knee length or midi items of clothing might actually not make me appear short and stumpy like I've always thought they would. So here I am braving the last few moments of winter in my scantily-clad bare legs.

Early Winter

 

I just got back last week from a spontaneous trip to Boston and New York. One of the worst associations I have and I think most people do with the word 'vacation' is heat and warmth and New York definitely wasn't either of those things... and since I had packed according to that association or thinking it would be similar to Vancouver weather, I was freezing! I basically piled on the entire contents of my suitcase on myself my entire trip and I am still trying to feel warm again.

Lazy Days


Being sick is never fun and the hardest thing to do is get up and try to pull yourself together to look pretty decent. Your skin just doesn't look the same and your hair won't listen to you and you pretty much look like shit in everything. I think besides shoes the one thing I own the most are bathrobes, and buying a robe-like cardigan should have been my on my list ages ago! It's also saved me from morning after a crazy night out, we went absolutely insane tearing up the dance floor all night long!

Checkmate

A little late to be posting this but this was my outfit for Christmas, probably the best Christmas I have ever had! This year the entire extended family was home and we had a huge potluck dinner and played games afterwards, basically converting the apartment into a mini game center and everyone was just running around from room to room going from mahjong, Chinese dominoes, poker and Chinese checkers. We didn't do presents this year but my holiday home was pretty much an amazing three week gift for me!
