They are black and white sequined flower headbands. I just love the look of them! The only tricky part is the costs of shipping, I didn't realize how much costs had changed since I was selling belts online in high school. Hope you all had a great weekend!
Check them out on my Etsy shop here: www.gascoin.etsy.com

Now I just need to find some nice ankle boots! Oh, if you ever find your self in downtown Kingston on Princess St., I recommend you check out Era, it is a quality vintage/thrift store. Blazers are $5-7, skirts $5-10, etc. Very reasonable! This is what it looks like:

Is it crazy that I used to be deathly afraid of camera's? I hated getting my picture taken so would cover my face as often as I could, and now I take them all the time. This blog helped me get over that phoebia actually.
I just discovered a tri-pod at my house to this was my first attempt at using it. Not much to report today, it was pretty normal.

We have some busy days ahead! Saturday is moving day for my brother! He bought himself a condo in Toronto and we get to move him from his old crappy apartment into a new lux one. I will definitely be over to play tennis, use the squash courts and swim. I haven't seen it yet, so I'm pretty excited. I can't wait to get a permanent job and find a first home of my own. I am sick of renting and not being able to decorate the way I want. Right now that is all I want.

Ok, you are going to think I am completely nuts for suggesting this shopping tip unless everyone reading this are closet seniors section shoppers. Anyway I was out shopping yesterday because I am in desperate need of jeans, and had to make a stop at The Bay because I needed to see if they sold a certain brand of clothing that my grandmother wears. (she is in need of pants as well). After looking through the section I could not believe all of the cute cardigans, skirts and blouses there were. I'm not talking about all of the elastic waist banded pants, but other items. Of course it is a bit of trial and error. Seniors are not the same shape as younger people are, so certain pieces of clothing might not fit properly, but it is the exact same thing as vintage and thrift shopping. You often try on a lot of things before finding that one perfect piece. I found that going down one size from your regular size was the best fitting strategy. The skirt posted above came from the senior's petites section and it fits like it was tailored for me. Plus the sale racks are full full full of clothes. And you will know that other people our age won't be wearing the same thing!

I don't know what it is, but I love Victoria Beckham. Everything she does whether it be her book, her Marc Jacobs campaign or this Armani campaign, I adore them all. I thought that the first campaign that she and David did for Armani was intensely elegant and ubber sexy, and I think this new campaign shares the same power of imagery. However, the new campaign bodes more strength and power through the angles of their bodies than the previous which hosted more of a calm laidback effortless elegance. I love the almost animalistic body positions in the second picture, like they have been startled and are looking at the perpetrator. Love the new campaign!

Some pictures I took this weekend at my parents place and at the cottage:
For Canada Day I usually get together with my friends and go downtown in whatever city I am in to watch the fireworks. This year was a little different. I didn't see any fireworks at all, not one. My parents and I made an exits to the cottage and spent the night there. I thought maybe someone would set off some fireworks on the lake, but we didn't see any.
