Vanessa and I graduated April 12th. I know it was a while ago, but here are the pictures! We presented our final project Victoria’s Wardrobe which it a clothing store directory for Victoria. We made an awesome power point (the slides moved themselves, c’mon how awesome it that?), we got to wear spectacular dresses and we got to see what our classmates did for final projects. The projects varied for music videos to photography books and even some did commentary on video games. I didn’t even know that was a thing! All that being said the night was marvellous and I got to look like Rainbow Fish to boot. Speaking of rainbows, I saw a double rainbow the other day when I was playing Ultimate Frisbee, I was tempted to react like this guy. But I digress.

The dress I’m wearing is from one of my favourite Vintage/Consignment shops in Victoria, Regalia Boutique. Unfortunately they closed their doors a couple of months ago, but hopefully they’ll be back soon! My hair was done by Tiffany at Carreiro the Studio, and I think it was 2.5 hours well spent (even if it made me miss my class picture!).

With Vanessa moving to Vancouver on Tuesday, I will mostly be updating this blog and Victoria’s Wardrobe myself. However, I’m sure I’ll visit Vanessa lots so I’m sure you will still see her on here.

All the posts below this one are from my old blog Kate Leola. I’ve decided to create this blog under the subdomain of victoriaswardrobe.com, because I’m paying for the web hosting anyways. And who knows, maybe I’ll customize it in the future.

Lots of love,

Kate

Okay so you have to listen to the Django Unchained theme music as you read this post, it’s epic. The whole movie was epic.

It had typical Quentin Tarantino gore, most of the time it was comical and theatrical, with only two scenes being absolutely cringe worthy. There was a lot of quick wit, most of it coming from Christoph Waltz playing the amiable Dr. King Schultz.

Have a beautiful day,
Kate

Sun Child

I’m super stoked at how well these photos turned out with the sun and everything. I love backlit things, whether it’s a dog, cat, an inanimate object, basically it could be anything.

So I was perusing lookbook.nu yesterday and stumbled across the blog Pop Champange by Julie Lan and just about died laughing at her posts and musings. She also has a great fashion sense and is from Victoria, but lives in Ottawa. As much as I love following international bloggers, I’ll always have a soft spot for my fellow Canadians.
Have a beautiful day,

All systems go

Aren’t these oxfords amazing? I love the weaved gold leather and guess what? I got them at Vaule Village! They’re in near perfect condition and they’re exactly my size 9.5 AA (narrow). Crazy right? But it seems Vaule Village has invested more time into looking at shoes and clothes – noticing when things are probably worth a bit more then $10, because these bad boys were $26. I never thought I would spend $26 on shoes at the Village, but hey, sometimes quality calls.

Have a beautiful day,
Kate

The Breakwater II

This is what I was wearing underneath my coat the day I went to the breakwater. I really love the colour of this sweater, and this whole ensemble in general. I think the pictures turned out marvelous; I love having my mom along to take them and the last picture is of her!

Have a beautiful day,
Kate
