Make it solid gold

Tonight's the night I'm taking some time off from studying to go dancing! Granted, my French exam takes place early tomorrow morning so I'm feeling a bit anxious about staying out late but... The Presets are playing! Last time they came to Vancouver I didn't end up going and regretted it later when I heard their songs played outside of my home for the first time at a Sci-Fi club night. I won't be missing out again! Plus, as an added bonus, they've brought The Golden Filter with them on tour. Yep, no way I'm missing out.

So if you've noticed lately that my posts have been slowing down, it's because I've been studying French grammar like a madwoman hoping to have it all programmed into my brain by tomorrow morning so that, even if I'm tired, I can just turn on autopilot and plow through the exam.




I've put together two potential outfits for tonight. In the first photo I'm wearing a thrifted gold top, vest, skirt turned inside out, and Aldo heels, and in the second I'm wearing a thrifted lace blouse, the same skirt, and Topshop heels. Although I'd really like to wear my little ode to gold for the Golden Filter, I think it will be much too hot and I don't want to stain the beautiful top. So I might go with outfit two instead. Nice and breezy.



Taking photos of myself (and this time not in a mirror) makes me again think that I really need a lens that has a focusing ring with numbers on it! Or at least a remote control for the camera. I had so many problems getting the focus right for these two shots. They're still a bit off, but good enough.

Anyways, I suggest you turn off the TV, get off the computer, play the below songs very loudly, and dance to keep the world spinning!

I've been to plenty of shows on the eves of exams, you'll do fine. Especially if you've been cramming all week. I suggest to go with the breezier look, shows are unpredictable and some rowdy fella could spill his drink on your top or something hahah but have fun!

Ahh! Both outfits are amazing. You'll look gorgeous no matter which you choose! Good luck with your exam :)

Hmm, i love the gold top but i can see your dilemma when you are dancing. lace is classic, timeless and sexy and never fails.

you can always osmosis your French test and sleep with your notes underneath your pillow!

J'éspere tu passeras un trés bien examen. Il faut que tu aies étudié bien, si tu vas a le concert ce soir! Bonne chance. J'aime le Presets!

Not sure if that's right.. but this way you can study and blog at the same time. :)

I thought that first photo was from a magazine before I saw it was you! So beautiful, and I love the backdrop! Makes most peoples self-photographed outfit posts look lame, mine certainly included!

i love that gold top, the collar is extroadinary. Such a great idea to wear the skirt inside out, doubling the possibilities of potential outfits.

I'm curious...how is your closet set up...are those custom made hangers? they look "designy" and quiet cool. very different...

i'm currently in transition from school to my own place and looking to detailing a walk in closet. very exciting prospect!
