Just Give'r Eh?

Kay, so, since spring of last year, I have been a firm follower of a couple personal style blogs. Most of my favourites have come from the Delightful Dozen, including Julie from Orchid Grey, Tieka from Selective Potential, and Maria from Lulu Letty. I absolutely love the way these gals dress, the niceness and support that comes from fashion blogging, and the fun and joy of seeing real clothing on real people in real places. Much better than a magazine in my opinion.

For ages I've been saying that I'd like to try my hand at it, not cause I think my own style needs to be all over the internet. I feel instead like if I put up some personal stuff on here, it'll keep me from wearing the same thing all the time (AA dress, anyone?) and keep me on track with the exercise and the weight watching etc.

In the fall I tried my hand at a photo shoot with my (actually a model) cousin, and have done it again a few times with the help of my lovely roommate. She is super complementary all the time on my clothiers, and if it weren't for her, I probably wouldn't give this the ol' college try. But since some people have been so nice, now the rest of you must be subjected!

Welp, here goes nothing. A few shots from Thanksgiving Weekend in my parents' backyard and the glory that is Ontario fall.

Dress: American Apparel
Sweater: Thrifted (aaaages ago, recently resurrected)
Neclace: Forever 21 (my cousin's)
Tights: Who knows?
Loafers: Zellers (also ages ago)

This is one of my go-to outfits (I'm wearing the sweater as we speak, with some different black clothes underneath). I still wear it in the winter, just with two pairs of tights. Probably would do in the summer too, with no tights. See? I'm in a rut. Time to play!
