I have a housemate. His name is Ralph.

Ralph is a tiger.

Ralph loves shoes (and being straddled).

Ralph is a good sport.

So we gave Ralph a break.

Break over, pinned ya!

But deep down we love each other.

Cruella de Vil – Pony Stylez by hallaek

Do you have me on Instagram? Do you follow me on Twitter? Did you catch me at that perfect time in the night to pry my secretive hair plans out of my cold, shut lips? If you didn’t know then, you know now: I’ve my little pony-ed myself. Some celebs have done it, although only Lauren Conrad comes to mind, but I’ve seen other nameless hotties with rainbow hair posting pictures à la Lookbook. I originally saw the trend and figured, being a natural dark brunette, that a red or blue would be easier on my hair, but I was told otherwise so I figured fuck it – let’s go blonde. (As a blonde with crazy hair my language has become much more crude…that’s a lie.)

I have to thank the very patient Susan at Taz Hair Co. who even mixed together colours to match my likings (but the colours in her tattoos were phenomenal so I knew she’d be the one). And we just happened to find that McDonald’s edition My Little Pony in my basement, kismet.

P.S. These photos and the next batch were taken by Christianne – in case you want to hire her for weddings, or bat mitzvahs, or boudoir photos…
P.P.S. There are some really awesome shoes coming up, and my new friend, Ralph.



TORNADO TIME by hallaek

So perhaps the title of this post is a tad dramatic, but we did get some pretty awesome sights last night. I decided to consume an entire bottle of wine at dinner so such sights were even awesomer for moi. My look last night was created with the intention of seeming to be ‘bad-ass’ and to scare people – obviously did not happen. But Tila did buy her first pack of cigs, literally with the intention to look cool, but they were gross so that was that. And off we went to the Keg Mansion.
We also found Toronto Stonehenge and the gate just opens…

Less about me by hallaek

So much more effort goes into blogging about yourself. I spend hours collecting inspiration photos for my…life. No real reason. Just, life. I’ve always been afraid of putting my inspiration out there in fear of giving away what I want to do and am thinking – but my head was too big, because my Klout score is only a 35. I ain’t influencin’ shit.
Now I realize a Tumblr is the way to do these kinds of photo-spiration things, but if Sea of Shoes can do it on a bought TypePad domain name, then I can do the same WordPress stylez. Alls I’m saying is if you were reading this blog to stare at my pretty face and indulge in my egomania, then those days may be even fewer and further between (if that’s even possible considering my extreme laziness as of late and always).

Anyway, I’m not wearing a white dress, or anything resembling white at my wedding should that day come, and a veil was never in my plan either…but a sequin fucking cape is.

please.

casual veil.

the cape.

PHOTOG. by hallaek

There are going to be a lot of pictures in this post and basically no writing – for me, that is. I feel like most people don’t read my (witty) banter. I’m pretty sure of it…. Okay, I know it y’all. So, if you want to read my (witty) banter you can find it here. This is redundant for those of you that clicked the link, but for the rest of you: I’m now the fashion blogger for my school. Hopefully there’s no censoring (of my wit) like at the last not-my-own-blog-where-I-can-ramble blogging position. I’m fairly sure there won’t be, my ‘boss’ is hella cool. Yeah, hella. I’d tell you why, but that wouldn’t make me hella cool now, would it?

Anyway, it’s been too hot to wear anything besides nothing and I’ve been too busy to care. Here are some pictures I’ve taken that I like.
Things I see in my bedroom & some shots from my school’s photo shoot for our term’s magazine, FMQ.

Pigeon Sex by hallaek

Two big male pigeons were cooing very loudly and biting a female’s face in what I can only imagine is a BDSM-pigeon mating ritual. Spring has sprung, people…and pigeons.
And Scream 4 (I realize I’m late, bite me – like the pigeons?) Anyway, Scream 4 was the best movie I’ve seen ever. Hear that? Film connoisseurs everywhere are ready to gut me like a fish, 2011 styles. As a serious Scream fan this movie gave me everything I was looking for, and then some. Wes Craven, please plan my wedding.

And no, I’m not going to discuss the Royal Wedding, because I don’t care. Yeah, yeah, the royalists will get me, too. But I am wearing white long sleeves in these pictures – I’m pretty much the Duchess of Cambridge.

Before I lost my shadow.

I’ve had the photos to come for a while. I just don’t really have anything to say… Okay, that’s not entirely true for all of you out there rejoicing over my silence. I just mean that all I can think to talk about is Ally McBeal, and the dancing baby episodes have begun so I’m going to have a hard time discussing anything but. Dancing baby! Uga-chucka, girl you just don’t realize… I remember the dancing baby from way back when our (Your? My? Whatever.) parents watched this show and it was so cool to see a cartoon on an adult show. Or at least that’s what I remember thinking about Ally McBeal, the show has a lot of sexy scenes, your memory may be less innocent.
Anyway, the photos. I have a bit of a stronger grasp on how to contain my hair than I did when my trusty photog took these pictures, but the haircut and I are still on thin ice. (Very thin, haircut.) Now, a haiku for the weather (it was going to be an ode, but I am lazy):

haiku, to you too

Oh, right. The post’s title. Ally McBeal. Or the song “Short People” by Randy Newman. But if I know anything about Randy, and I don’t, McBeal‘s better. The song erupts at the end of a eulogy for a man who ‘disliked’ short people, Tila will have them singing “People-wearing-Ed-Hardy got no reason…” at my final goodbye. Enough of me being a hater, now could be your turn:
