actions speak louder than words...

...so here it is. Finally an outfit post. The only reason I can give for taking so long to post this is because I have finally settled in to my aunt's house here in Vancouver, and I had to find a spot within the house that would allow me to take a picture without having some (some would say tacky) asian decoration in the background. I wore this to work today, with a black cardigan layered on top to make it a little more conservative. Thank goodness I don't have to wear repetitive suits to work, or what creative energy I do have would have been sucked out.

I'm wearing an Urban Outfitter's Silence + Noise tie-dyed cropped top over an Urban Outfitter's Kimchi Blue nighty worn as a dress. The dress was another impulse buy, because I fell in love with the print when I walked in. Because the dress was quite sheer, I layered that over a nude slip. All these layers probably wasn't a very good idea considering that Vancouver is going through a ridiculous heat wave. I belted the entire outfit with a studded belt from Garage as a counterpoint to the feminity of the dress.

I didn't actually wear these shoes to work, considering that they're new, unworn and heeled. I would not have survived the day. Instead, I wore a pair of Aldo flats that are only slightly more broken in but already breaking. That will be another post for another day.

If I had the money to spare, and I was in need of a briefcase. This would be what I would get.

I was browsing through ideeli, one of those designer sale websites and stumbled upon the Salvatore Ferragamo sale. This briefcase, the "tan revival DBL gusset briefcase", leapt out at me as I opened the page. Love at first sight. I don't know if it was the colour, or simply the style, but...drool. Too bad, even on sale, it's going for $1,159. That would be $1,159 I don't have.

I think I'll just climb into bed and cry about it..then fall asleep and dream about it.
