herself the elf

(skirt//h&m --- legwarmers//dollarama --- socks//DIY) (elephant lamp//honest ed's in toronto)

It's the time of year again where I can justify buying anything with the phrase 'back to school', so I've been basically splurging on anything this week. But it's okay, I wear clothes so there isn't really a problem!
Anwyn, Augusta & I took a (band!) day trip to toronto to shop our hearts out (Anwyn got this ultra badass leather jacket), and this is what I picked up. The sweater, Pee Wee tee, and floral shirt are all from the black market on queen street, and I made the cat shirt, but thought I could throw it in to this shot too :)
here is my cute collection of school-like supplies! I'm actually kind of excited to start using all this, especially my cute yellow lunchbag from courage my love in kensington market!
in other news, my basement flooded last week! fun, right? nope. nothing was damaged, but our carpets got washed! plus I looked really cute that day so I took a picture of it!

aaaannnd in other news I FINALLY GOT A HAIR CUT! my last hair cut was in april, and my hair was getting really thick, so I gave my hairdresser a picture of ramona flowers (with the green hair) (I read that fifth scott pilgrim at least 10 times this summer), and this is what happened! I really like it plus there is PURPLE and it's gorgeous. I just adore it!

I basically watched the entire season of Orange is The New Black this week. The moral of the story: you need to watch this show. It was just so good, I can't even put it in to words. and the next season comes out in 2014. *sighs*

I also shot some film this summer which I want to get developed so I can seeee the picturesss!!

so anyway school starts for me on tuesday *shudders* but I'm excited for this semester because none of my classes are really academic or whatever, I have dance & music in the morning and then civics/careers & english in the afternoon. I'm just really excited to start wearing sweaters & tights and stuff!

when do you/did you start school? I mean, if you're *cough* lucky enough to still be in the school world ;)

this song was in the credits of Hot Fuzz and I fell in love, so my dad lent me a tape of the supergrass album!

  5. Really love your overalls in that basement picture of yours! And I especially love the pencil (?) case with all the old cameras printed on it.

    Hope you have a good first day of school! I started Tuesday earlier this week. You're so lucky to start after Labor Day!
