sharing is caring!

of course i should be sleeping or i'll be dead tomorrow at my contract job. but alas, i am too excited!

first off, if you haven't heard of the 8-year-old fashion plate yet, please check this out.

and anyone hoping to own a piece of rodarte heaven without the exorbitant prices, may want to set their countdown clock to the release of the rodarte/lippmann nail polish. (sorry for my tardiness in reporting.)

next, aren't these alice+olivia for payless shoes amazing?!

i seriously hope i can locate a pair in vancouver.

lastly, i leave you with this wicked(ly cheap!) cardigan:

norma kamali batwing cardigan. yes, wal-mart. the store you wish you could wholeheartedly hate.

'k, i'm off to bed! 'twas a full day of work and screaming (and filling my belly with poutine and pomegranate cider) at the vancouver giants vs. spokane chiefs game. (yaaaaaay giants!!!!!!!) tomorrow/today, i will rock my canucks jersey and eyeshadow. wish me luck on finding the proper nail polish! (or would that be too matchy-matchy? heh)

weekend menswear.

it was so nice out yesterday - high of over 18°C in my neighbourhood! it's finally feeling like spring!

what i'm wearing:
  • mens shirt: i've had it for at least 10 years; a really old hand-me-down from either my dad or uncle
  • jeans: uniqlo (japan)
  • belt: from a market in china
  • shades: old stock from previous owner of grocery store my parents bought in '88
  • shoes: roxy (i bought these on sale in fall of '07 and have never come across another pair like it! they are so soft and comfortable, but are ready to retire. if anyone can point me in the direction of similar flats, please let me know!)
x-posted to fabsugar lookbook
