This morning I had my Facebook password changed. Then this afternoon I had my Twitter password changed (but my account is public so I saw what you tweeted, Mina). The blog is too personal to hand over to anyone so I still have some semblance of a grasp in the interweb, or whatever it’s called, and with this small bit of reach I give you this:
I’m not from the valley either. But at Crestwood Valley Day Camp I got an award from my counsellors for my mean valley girl impression, if that means anything. Now back to the hermit way.

I love American Apparel. That should really be the second thing I tell people about myself after my obvious love affair with dark coloured clothing. I own pretty much all of it. In various colours. Sometimes various sizes. Even some pieces they stopped making because they were not the best of styles – I got it. I worked there for a summer where I bought everything in sight (50% off employee discount, hello) and then I just kept buying because their styles seemed to evolve as I did, it just worked. Kismet. Simpatico. An affinity for one another, which is a line I once used in an American Apparel interview some time ago. Last summer I decided I was done with this short skirt thing, I want a long one! BAM. They release the double layer chiffon maxi skirt, first released in black at the location closest to me. It appeared in a post shortly thereafter.
With what I’m about to say that whole first paragraph sounds like a bunch of sucking up, but please believe me when I say (type) this: it comes from the heart.
They’re releasing a larger series of clothing – size XL. This means I can buy more, own more, wear more, keep the economy going and hopefully keep them out of debt for good this time! There is a contest to find that curvy girl to represent, as the kids would say, and I want to be her.

I’m dying my hair red. And I’m not sure the look I’m going for is all that natural. In fact, I would prefer a red that is bright, or cherry-like, or if not those then the other extreme: pinks. Maybe a raspberry…if that’s a thing. I like the idea of dark brows with a hue that is clearly not the root of those brows. And since my brows of late have been much more Russian prosti-tot than normal person, my head of hair is basically crying to be dyed some cray colour. Did I mull over blue? Of course. My first instinct will always be blue since that time in grade six when I begged my mom for blue highlights and was denied – it’ll happen one day, mom! Moving on, red/pink/whatever is the colour this time and I’m a big kid now so suck it (mom). She’s actually in full support, she’s just a blue-bigot. …Why am I talking about my mother?
I like these pictures.
I’ll be asking the advice of the lady who made me blonde, don’t want to mess with my natural beauty or nothin’. And this is the aforementioned she:
She’ll know what to do, right? Whatever, it’s happening.

But that certainly does not mean I should. Where am I going with this? My hair has been cut. For the first time in over a year (it was getting a bit too hippie-esque). Anyway, I went way too far. My hairdresser also went way too far when she made the lone decision to chop my bangs off. I asked for a long bang, and would’ve loved a heads up before I looked up and saw my short little baby bangs, but alas… You know those hairdresser bangs? You definitely do. They’re short, and jagged, and edgy (although I obviously disagree, hello italics), anyway whatever they are they only work in haircut magazines, or haircut photo shoots; somewhere where ‘piecey’ cropped bangs look almost cool and not completely ridiculous. (You guessed it, mine look completely ridiculous.)
Tila was dying of laughter as I explained all the facets of my worst haircut to date (WORST), and even a Dove commercial caught me (again, while I was on the elliptical…stop laughing). Dove told me more than 50% of girls/women avoid social situations because of their appearance. I suppose right now I’m going against everything that started this blog, but never once did I discuss hair. Is hair different? Should I say screw it and rock my Liz-Lemon-Dealbreakers-era haircut? Probably. But suck it, I’m going to be self-conscious about this one thing, OKAY. Look to decapitated pictures or, as I pitched to my handy sidekick, “I can use Photoshop now, let’s just put your head on my body for the next month.” She’s not keen.
On to better and brighter haircuts:
These t-shirts are printed by my friend, Nathalie, from Queen’s. She’s just opened up a store on Etsy where she’s selling them. She’s really cool, like, super cool. Just one of those people who came out of the womb cool and never had to work at being cool like the rest of us suckers. Cool.
I love the look of the huge print on the t-shirts, it looks almost abstract, but you can still support your idol without it being too “graphic tee-y”. Another cool thing? She takes requests. I obviously jumped in with a flurry of old school designer names, and I’m very excited to see the upcoming Roger Vivier and Yves Saint Laurent ones. Who am I thinking of next? My short-haired idols of course: Liz Lemon and Ally McBeal.
P.S. Note the Coco Chanel tee has metallic foil for the ember of her cigarette, how slick would that look with some too-high heels, and blazer! (No pants obviously.)

All for now, back to the domestic dispute with my fringe.

That’s pretty much my motto. I’ve been the biggest slacker in a long time lately and it’s seeping into everything. That and Toronto’s wonderful weather as of late (I can mean that either as: a) it’s been horrible for so long or b) thank goodness it’s finally looking up now) have been either a) depressing or b) distracting. See, a good slacker can explain any actions, usually defending one’s laziness. Anyway, as some of you know I like the archives at the side to be complete, so here I am posting on the last day of March. Yup.
Moving on, I’ve snapped some photos of my living room. Visitors always comment so why not bring some of my interior to the web for even more commentary of whatever sort. Currently my living room is the most complete style-wise. If my condo were a home design show (and for those of you home design show buffs), the reason for my bedroom being incomplete, in that the stylistic focus-wall is still bare, it is due to the fact that we were shocked with concrete walls and the shelving ended up being a huge project/ordeal. Thus, money was taken from the wallpaper budget and used on the shelving budget. That is such a scenario for Property Brothers or Love It Or List It. (Right?)
I’ll be showcasing all the forgotten shoes. You know, hopefully.
