wearing: everything is thrifted or from the Victoria Vintage Fair
photos by Carly Dame
I can’t remember the last time I wore a completely thrifted/secondhand look. I think this outfit works because all of the pieces are in excellent condition and fit well. For example my blazer is Ralph Lauren and my shoes are leather and made in Italy. The other pictures in this post are of street performers in downtown Victoria and a Friday night market (no, I do not know that man…).
I woke up to jackhammering this morning, was about to curse the neighbours, then realized it was coming from my house. My parents are renovating the basement, so I’m sure I’ll have many more months of being awoken by jakhammers, chainsaws, table saws and other loud obnoxious power tools. Yes.
I went to the Victoria Vintage Fair this past weekend and found a gorgeous beaded, sequin top and pretty white slip that I’ll probably need another slip for because it’s so transparent. There was a summer market next to the vintage fair so I had to sample some ice cream and other goodies.
Lots of love,

I got this dress from a local shop here in Victoria and it was 50% off. My Mom and I had just been to the grocery store to buy salmon, popsicles and other perishable foods when she decided she wanted a bottle of wine. As we were walking to the liquour store I decided to pop into True Boutique. It was lucky I did because I found this wonderful dress and a couple other tops. Needless to say the popsicles were a bit melted when we got home, but the salmon was fine.
I decided to fancy up my dress by wearing heels, a blazer and red lipstick. I’m not used to wearing lipstick, so it got everywhere. Occasionally I would look at my fingers, see it smeared there, and panic. I don’t think I got any on my clothes, but I managed to get it all over my teeth.
Carly and I ventured to Fisherman’s Wharf to take these photos in the wind and sun. She had a constant battle with the wind, her hair, and lip gloss, so I was glad I wore my hair up. I imagine I would have little lines of lipstick all over my face!
Lots of love,
