tough one

In the search for the perfect short boot, I've narrowed it down to two.
This fall, barring a financial crisis, I'm pretty sure I'll be investing in one of them: the Frye Motorcyle boot or the Fluevog Radio BBC.
They are both about the same price and both are good quality. The Motocycle boot is a little more iconic, but then also maybe on its way out. The Fluevog BBC is a classic, plain and simple. And it has laces.

I've got lots of time to decide, but I thought I'd take a poll and see what other people feel. What does everyone think? Frye or Fluevog?

summer project number one

One of my goals this summer was to teach myself to make bread. With help from The Bread Bible by Beth Hensperger, the whole process is a little less mysterious and scary to me.
I love the yeasty smell, the springy feeling to well-risen dough when you shape it, and - of course - eating the finished product.

Sunshine doesn't seem to want to stay in Vancouver...
I console myself with blue nails and kale soup.

woah its june

My camera cable is MIA.
But my fashiony-ness seems to be thrashing its tail down in the murky waters of my brain. Yesterday I went shopping, had far too much coffee, read British Vogue and then couldn't sleep due to visions of a certain Club Monaco Blue skirt that is haunting me with its perfection.
Sadly, Club Monaco has a terrible website and is Canadian so not many people know about it. But it is fantastic. I habitually poach the men's shirt section for comfy oversized tops and it's lovely. And they make some of the best skirts I've found at the under $200 range.

But I was really going to post about Lara Stone and how pretty she is, and not go on a tangent about the skirt I am lusting over.
She is my current inspiration - rough around the edges but unapologetic about it and sexy as hell. Not that any of that is news to tons of people. I just want to somehow acknowledge it.
