It's hot out! Yesterday was actually sweltering! Went to the beach with the boys and swam and tanned for hours. We climbed into a boat that was tethered to a buoy and almost stole the owl perched there - but we put it back in the end! I suppose it was a little creepy that we were just lurking in some random's boat, but it was really funny. After the beach we drove down to Wheatberries and Amy gave me a brownie and a cup of whipped cream! Yummy! Later I went to say goodbye to Natalie who is leaving for Saskatchewan today and probably even in the airport flying out as I write this.. bon voyage bubba! She will be back before her birthday, August 10th, and then she moves to our apartment on August 16th! After Natalie's I drove over to Carlee's event which was really fun and crazy and we were just laughing the whole time. The boys joined us later there but I was so tired I just fell asleep.

Yea look at these jeans, they are amazing. I want them! Anyways, today I will hopefully go to the beach with Amy depending on whether or not I ever get off skype and can eat something and get dressed and such things! :D Its been now like 3 hours, but I don't care. Today is my first day off work in four days and it is so beautiful out that I really want to swim! Hope everyone has the day off like I do, go out and enjoy the sunshine!

UPDATE: Ahh I am SO tired! I was at the beach for hours just swimming and getting some sun. I met Amy and Michi down at Soames and Brittani joined us a little later. It was really nice to see her again because I never get to! A couple hours later she gave me a ride home and then I fell asleep on my couch until dinner. Haven't really heard from Natalie today, but I think she was also at the beach earlier with a friend of hers. What will happen tonight? I have no idea! I wish that it was colder so I could wear something cuter to the beach than just a bathing suit!

We are very happy to say the least! Furthermore, we now have enabled commenting. To leave one just click the timestamp at the bottom of the post!

Tomorrow I will write a longer update, and I also hope to finally post this LOOKBOOK photo; but only if I have the time.

Goodnight!

So I am finally posting these photos that Tamara and I took a while ago! I have been quite busy with work and such that I never got around to uploading them. Anyway, I would like to point out that it was 30 degrees outside when these were taken! I was slowly melting in my fringe leather jacket and zip jeans. I had originally thought that the photo shoot would be used for LOOKBOOK but I am not sure if I want to use them anymore. What do you think?

update!

[tamara]




Sorry! I know its been a little bit since I last posted and since certain people have been pressuring me to do so, I found some time to squeeze in an update. So where to start? Andrew landed in Vancouver on Wednesday and it has been really nice to have him here but I have been working so much I feel badly that I haven't spent more time with him. Tonight, and last night for the matter, is Sea Cav and so I don't have time to post the LOOKBOOK photo yet -- it's coming soon though, don't worry! Unfortunately because I have been so busy lately I also don't have enough time to skype with Russia as much as I would like. :( But if things go the way I hope they do I will be seeing a lot more of him very soon! :D :D Natalie picked up 5 new pieces from various vintage stores around the coast yesterday and I am excited to see them! We are gradually transitioning into a more girly wardrobe; And although we are still sporting more hardcore items on the street, a plethora of floral and coloured wear is being stocked up. That's all for now kids, time to get ready && see you tonight!

Natalie and I did a 8 hour ready&shoot today and so new LOOKBOOK photos will be up in the next few days, but in the meantime here are some of the discarded...

my take on things..

[tamara]




Designers like Chanel, especially through their pret-a-porter lines, are supplying trends like fast food. To look good in their pieces you don't need to have taste or knowledge of the fashion world, you just need money. To me the best style is that which comes from nothing, completely out of the blue, and just happens to coincide with these 'fast food' lines. In essence, if you are wearing looks similar to what the editorials are putting together, after they have already been printed, then you aren't ahead. You are in fact, behind. Only if you wear the look, and then start seeing it in fashion magazines, are you truly avant garde.

This is something all of those who are interested in fashion can aspire to be like.
