Black Goldfish & Twisted Wrap Mini Skirt

inspired by the two wonder girls blog!

my friend Kaitlin is modeling my Black Goldfish dress:


 my pale yellow gold fish dress!
I made it without a pattern so it was crazy stuff, there's lining, top stitching, princess seam, slight neck gather, a natural waist line and I hand silk screened the gold fish.
check it out at my shop
Friend with Benefit stars Mila Kunis in a super cute twisted mini skirt!
(oh i absolutely adored the movie! So cute and funny)
I'm not hundred percent sure, but I swear the two skirts above are the exact same (and maybe reason why it's now out of stock).

So I decided to make my own in a stretchy dark olive colour fabric.

 my dog's jokes.
write a line a day for five years.
I spotted this cool book at urban outfitters and ordered it on amazon for like seven dollars less and it finally came in the mail.

I absolutely am obsessed with documenting my life. blog, diary, photos, scrapbook. I think memories are so important! Do you feel the same way?

ciao4now!

p.s. My first legal drink at Joey's, anyone tried out the new one at eatons centre?
They have these fabulous ahi-tuna tacos that are to die for!
