Tell Me About It, Stud

Sunday, October 31, 2010

I didn't want to spend money on a costume this year, so I decided to look for one within my closet. A Sandy-when-she-goes-bad outfit quickly emerged out of my clothes. But no one assumed I was in costume! Which, I suppose, is understandable. Next year, wigs will be involved. Regardless, I've been having a wonderful weekend. Hope you guys are too :)

Orange You Glad?

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Heres a little festive orange and black to get the Halloween juices flowing. (hmm something about that sounds kind of gross)


Wearing all vintage clothes (Tommy Bahama shorts) and Pierre Hardy for GAP shoes.



I've been studying all night for my mid-term tomorrow and I'm feeling very restless! Thank god Halloween is coming...I need a great weekend to pull me out of a funk I've been in the past few days. Things aren't fabulous but I have faith that all will be better in time, and knowing me, I don't like to stay stuck for long. Goodnight lovely readers! -Jenny


Come on Get Happy

Monday, October 25, 2010


This is a Cosmopolitan! It was a DIY effort to make this drink...No martini shaker? Use a travel mug! No crushed ice? Put some ice in a plastic bag and whack with a pan on the floor! Shake shake shake et voila!

So heres the recipe I used and the tutorial I watched


In honor of Happy Hour, here are five things that are making me happy this week (and of course they are Halloween related)

I miss my brother!

The intro to are you afraid of the dark STILL freaks me out!

Isn't this picture the BEST?

I saw this Lindsay Thornburg Dress on Clever Nettle. SO beautiful non?

And I know this isnt Halloween related...but let me say this...the world can be a scary place, but knowing that Margaret Cho is speaking out about it makes me feel a whole lot bettah.

This video has been the beacon of my week, especially when Margaret Cho says,

"You know when you look in the mirror and you think ugh, I'm so fat, I'm so old, I'm so ugly. Don't you know thats not your authentic self but that is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising, magazines, movies, billboard, all geared so that you will feel shitty about yourself. So that you will take your hard earned money and spend it at the mall on some turn around cream that doesn't turn around shit."

Peter Pan and the Lost Boys

Friday, October 22, 2010


I really liked this outfit on Lulu Letty, so I tried to scrounge around my house for something similar.



Now I can't find my Peter pan collar shirt guys, its GONE! I think it fell out of my bag on my way home from the gym. Epic fail.

EDIT: I FOUND IT!!!! Crumpled in my bed sheet drawer! WAHOOOO! Thanks for the kind comments xx


The Color Purple

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I went shopping yesterday because my wardrobe is seriously lacking in the color purple. And today is the national day to wear purple and commemorate the eleven people who have committed suicide this year due to homophobia and oppression in their homes and institutions. The color purple was chosen because on the flag this color stands for Spirit.

Picture found on the Fashion Pirates.

Rest in Peace Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase, Asher Brown, Cody J. Barker, Harrison Chase Brown, Caleb Nolt, Billy Lucas, Jeanine Blanchette, and Chantal Dube


Wearing all vintage...I shortened the skirt last night while watching sex and the city and made the bow out of the extra fabric (I used THIS tutorial on YouTube.) Its not perfect but I find it charming and better that way.


I wrote a post about this on Lickity Splits website, which is a zine that promotes positive pan-sexual expression. For more information and for videos go to my post HERE.


How to be Alone

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

I am going to try and make Tuesday my personal date day! I love doing things on my own and find I'm recharged after a day of meandering around all by myself! Here's a video I LOVE about being happy doing things on your own.

The weather was perfect today so I tried out a cozy sandwich shop in Little Italy called Le Pick Up, which came to me highly recommended. The space reminded me of a small town corner store...its woodsy and small and the the regulars are friendly. Bob Dylan was playing and it fit the vibe perfectly.


I got a little lost on the way so I asked a hip looking girl if she knew where it was. She couldn't explain all the twists and turns, so she pulled out her Iphone, said "I really want you to try the Halloumi sandwich" and looked up the address. It was worth it... Grilled cheese, decadent minty cabbage perfection!


Le Pick Up is half restaurant, half Deppaneur (they are all over Montreal, basically a convenient store only it sells alcohol till 11 every night).

Then I went to two second hand shops and spent hours wondering if my purchases were practical! lol.


Hard Headed Woman

Monday, October 18, 2010

Sadly not all of us can look this fabulous on a bicycle!

There has been a lot of rain in Montreal this fall season and it seems to always come down the hardest when I'm on my bike!



Equipped with my new raincoat and hardy blundestones, I am ready to grab this fall season by the balls! Both keep me dry, comfortable and temperate.

Yesterday I spent some time in the hospital, visiting a friend who hit his head. (He is okay - thank god!) On my ride over, I vowed to always wear helmut before hopping on my bike. Its so silly not to!

So far the helmut-jacket-blundstone combo has been successful - no one recognizes me anymore and I feel free to sing as loud as my heart desires! Currently stuck in my head is a new song called Cider by my friends Walter and Irene (their myspace HERE)


Green Eggs and Hair

I've never dyed my hair before. But if I did, I'd want it to look something like this:

I haven't had my morning coffee yet, but I wanted to put something up to say HI! I will be back later tonight with a post on Practical Weather Wear. My favorite topic!


Exciting Firsts

Saturday, October 16, 2010

During the week of Pop Montreal I was insanely flattered to be stopped by two talented streetstyle photographers...

The first was Anik from Montreal in Style, (my bestest friend Jenni was also photographed and the original post can be found HERE)

The next night I was stopped by Gaelle Leroyer outside a Silly Kissers show (the original post is HERE)

Then I nearly peed my pants when the Fashion Press asked to do a Blogger Spotlight of FASHION MADE ME FUNKY (you can read the full interview here).

I've been feeling inspired and happy these days and I have the people who are reading this blog to thank! xo


I See London...

Thursday, October 14, 2010

I should be writing my paper right now, but instead I feel compelled to write about underwear!


I bought this Blush corset at Winners (12 buckeroos!) and wore it out last night to the Art Matter Info Party in Montreal. I was inspired after looking at the promo images of The Loved One - a new vintage lingerie line that is just the sweetest! For more info and inspiration visit Hannah and Landon

Kensey Crane

Monday, October 11, 2010

Kensey Crane is an artist whose photos capture love in most unexpected places! Her pictures are sincere, and charming, and each one strikes a cord in me - the one that sings "that's it...that is the feeling." Nostalgia, longing, humor,'s all there. In our interview, Kensey explains that everything Miranda July touches turns to gold - well, I would argue the exact same thing about the lovely Miss Crane.

We did a fun little interview and together chose five pictures from the hundreds of gorgeous photos on her Flickr. It was not easy, let me tell you!


Ha! Thank you!! It was a magnetic feeling I had towards the camera, an instant affinity. I reached for it to communicate all these ideas I had in my head. I remember reading an interview with Joanna Newsom where she says her harp is like an extension of herself, and those are my exact sentiments towards my camera. I feel like something is missing when I don’t have my camera with me. Like I’ve forgotten to bring one of my limbs! There is nothing more painful for me than seeing the perfect candid moment and being caught cameraless!

My dad is a photographer, and was always really encouraging about the whole thing. When I showed the smallest spark of interest in it - he ran out and bought me my first camera, gave me some really helpful hints and got excited whenever I showed him a photo I’d taken.

Flickr can be really hit or miss for me. I feel like I’ve found so many amazing treasures on there, but you’ve really got to sift away the people who just want to show off their fancy cameras, trying to promote themselves without ever appreciating what other people have to offer. I joined it about three years ago and I feel like I’ve made some real connections with other members, often other women, which is really nice. It’s such a lovely and simple form of human connection. Sharing images. It often keeps me motivated when I receive a positive reaction. Sometimes I can’t even wait to put something up that I’m proud of!

People with interesting faces! I love anything that is outside “the box” - I guess quirkiness in the most sincere form. People who are weird without trying to be so, or people who embrace whatever it is that sets them apart from the norm! I really love Miranda July, everything she touches turns to gold. I get really inspired by her work because it is all saturated in such humor and sincerity and those are the two most important qualities I seek out in people. I also love old films and photos and paintings that pushed the boundaries of what was considered acceptable at the time and spend a lot of time reading, watching movies, googling strange things, and observing people in various situations and somehow it all soaks in to my subconscious and makes it easier for me create my own things. I love people who make art as a means to express themselves and provoke thought or emotion, not just for fame or recognition or flattery.

I am just so charmed by certain aesthetics and colour schemes and shapes that don’t seem to exist in the modern day. Finding something unique and vintage with a history you’ll never even know about, it’s a thrill for me! Not to mention is almost always affordable which is a comfort for someone who is perpetually on a budget

Hmm.. I think I’d be a spoonful of Nutella. Because then I’d shamefully eat myself once I thought everyone else had gone to bed.

My Flickr - Hello Bonjour - is the best place! I also have a blog called Wincing Churchill but I am not as loyal to it! I am in the process of setting up an etsy shop for vintage findings and also prints of my photos. I’ll let you know as soon as its up and running!
