Big Cats (and The Art of Layering)

I’ve always insisted my wardrobe is more Californian than Vancouverite, but I might be in over my head because dressing for fall isn’t so bad.. One simply needs to master the Art of Layering: layers are nice and cozy, but they are disgusting when you become a sweltering, hot mess after moving too much in them. Keywords: balance, and sweltering.

[Faux] fur scarf — Urbanoutfitters; canvas military jacket — Salvation Army; leopard print pants — OBEY; combat boots — vintage Aldo

One of my fav outfits because the pants are breezy and comfy, and everything was very cheap.. The scarf $10, pants $5, coat $3.99, and the boots were free, because to me, “vintage” is synonymous with “stolen from my mother’s closet.”

My goal this year (and for the rest of my life) is to stop complaining about Vancouver weather because everyone in this city is so fixated on the weather, despite the fact that Vancouver is KNOWN to be rainy! And I bet you anything complaining makes you ugly.

So let the whining end, and the appreciating begin!

All I See is Red

I did the red camo, just because it ever so slightly differs from the average camo. I mean, the key to mass culture is that it’s different but not too overzealous, right? Also, because red makes you look fierce, duh.

This was taken back in the fall when Vancouver is near freezing, hence the layers. Otherwise July in Vancouver–who needs a jacket? Go nakies.
