GARAGE SALE

I went to the annual Glebe garage sale yesterday. I'm my mother's daughter I love thrifting and buying stuff for cheap second hand. I'm hoping to get to go to a couple more neighborhood sales before the summer is up. I know I said I wasn't shopping anymore till my trip in September, but this doesn't count!! Here is some of the stuff I got, minus the stuff I got for my apartment.

Purse - 7.00$
Dress - 3.00$

Floral dress - 3.00

I know I know, I was kicking the necklace phase I've been going through, but I could not resist the price. I thought I bought a fourth one, but it's no where to be found :/

Necklaces - 1.00 each

Banana Republic perfume - 5.00

Ray Bans - 5.00

Ipod Case - 1.00

MOD CLOTH


There's this great little online store called ModCloth, that sells a lot of unique items and retro T-shirts.
If your looking for something individual or just pretty dresses, check it out.

I love the swan T-shirt, it would be perfect for clubbing with a pair of leggings and strappy heels.

TARGET: PRIVATE LABEL
I'm not sure about all the pieces mixed together, but individually they are not too bad. I wish Zellers here in Canada (The Target counterpart) was as into fashion.

JUNE/JULY VOGUE PARIS

FT: LILY DONALDSON / SASHA PIVOVAROVA /
NATASHA POLY / CATHERINE MCNEIL & DOUTZEN KROES

I think they are trying to tell us that they are so much hotter then we are.





-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ALEXA CHUNG

OLD URBAN OUTFITTERS MODELLING





I love this girl.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


ASHLEE SIMPSON WEDDING PICS


I'm trying to describe her wedding...vampy maybe? There's something very romantic Dracula about it. It wouldn't be my cup of tea if it was me, but then again we are talking about two wanna be punks. I have nothing against Ashlee though, I've never disliked her. It seems like yesterday Pete Wentz was dating Michelle Trachtenberg and now he's married. Time flies.

Hot.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DOLCE AND GABBANA PARTY


DITA VON TEESE
She never disappoints, this look on her is one of my favorites. I wish i had smaller boobs so I could fit into strappy little tops like this.


LALALA
LOHAN

She's been looking so much better lately, maybe she really is engaged to Samantha? (See below)



NATALIE PORTMAN
I like the color of the shoes, but I think the flower bit can go. It's Natalie though, you know I'll always forgive anything she does.


KERRY WASHINGTON / ROSE MCGOWAN
Even a moon boot can't keep this girl out of a good party!


KATE HUDSON / MILA JOVOVICH
Kate Hudson, sweet, but boring. She should take a cue from Mila, she really brought it. That color is all sorts of amazing on her.


PHEOBE
PRICE

How does Pheobe Price get invited to these things? The fuckery of it! She actually looks toned down for once, maybe there was some sort of a strict dress code for this party. Maybe they dress you when you get to the door?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CANNES PART 5


CARINE AND JULIA ROITFELD
Paris elite, you know I love these two. Carine is in her 50s! All these older women are really starting to show up the younger ones. See, getting older isn't all that bad, if you know how to do it right.


DOUTZEN
KROES & NOEMIE LENOIR
What do we think of Noemie's outfit? It's unique that's for sure.


JADA PINKETT-SMITH
What's going on with Jada? To me she's always looked a little older then she actually is. I know she's naturally small, but it probably wouldn't hurt to put on 5 pounds it might get rid of that gaunt look. I still like this girl, and that color is amazing.


MILA
JOVOVICH / MICHELLE WILLIAMS

MICHELLE WILLIAMS

Oh my I love love love LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CHRISTIAN AUDIGIER 50TH
BIRTHDAY PARTY


BRIT BRIT SPEARS
Why does she insist on wearing a beat weave? I bet the hair dresser gives her a nice fresh one and she goes home and teases it till it looks like crap. She then looks at herself in the mirror and think's she's the most beautiful woman ever. That's right Brit, keep lying to yourself.


PAMELA ANDERSON / MICHAEL JACKSON
At least Pamela's boobs are covered. As for Jacko, what can I say that hasn't been said already?


SHAUNA SAND / FERGIE FERG
I was reading Shauna's wiki one day, and she's actually an educated woman and use to be a ballerina when she was younger. Who knew she would turn out to lok like such trash with signature clear heels?

MENA SUVARI
I'm not sure about all the leather, it seems a bit like over kill. I'm glad to see Mena with long hair again, though she did rock the short do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CELEB LOOKS

ASHLEY OLSEN IN LANVIN
Everyone's been wearing Lanvin lately, what is with the sudden explosion in popularity? I do think their clothing is amazing though, it can make anyone look like a Goddess.

MISCHA BARTON


Her hair is looking a little better, she's looking less like a Cocker Spaniel.

KEISHA WHITAKER

She's terribly skinny, but I guess she use to be a model and she's tall. I love Keisha though she's such a fashionista.


ALANIS MORISETTE
I only live about a ten minute walk from her condo. I wish she and Ryan Reynolds would get back together, dump Scarlett.


MARCIA CROSS

It's just a wig, hahaha! She does look great as a brunette, there's something very Katie Holmes about it.



JESSICA ALBA AT MIU MIU



LIV TYLER
She's been looking so so cute latey, it's really sad about her divorce. Typical Hollywood marriages I guess.


KELLY RIPA
Ugh, she looks like a bird to me, and what's with those circle things on the dress? The shoes don't really go either...


MEGAN GOOD

Megan has been kinda everywhere lately all of a sudden. I really like how she paired that T-shirt with the high waisted shorts, I've always been a fan of stripy T-Shirts.

NATALIE PORTMAN


PIXIE GELDOF
I still don't understand why their dad named his kids Peaches Honeyblossom, Pixie, Fifi Trixibelle and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily!

MILA KUNIS

Can you believe she and Macaulay Culkin are still together after all these years? (6) I guess staying out of the stoplight does work wonders. I thought Macaulay was great in Saved!, it's one of my favorite movies.


DIANE KRUGER
Diane, what's going on with you lately? You haven't wowed me in such a long time! I do like the combination of the gold shoes with the white mini dress.

Poor Rose! How embarrasing. Now Dita is really rocking a look that embodies her attitude and profession. That skirt is AMAZING.

Adge said...

You're right Lindsay Lohan is looking a lot better. Which makes me glad, because I really used to like her!And Dita, again always looking amazing! Marylin Mason has no idea what he gave up.

Aretha said...

Wowww this is one big post!!!Love it, and loove the Alexa pics,so cute

Secret Agent said...

Whoa! Great finds! Shiz, every piece you bought looks great. I'm sure those dresses look great on you. Totally digging the $5 Ray Bans.

Finally! A shot of Jada Pinkett Smith where she doesn't look like a lesbian rocker.

Sharon Rose said...

I adore your finds-a girl after my own heart-I'd have them all-ha ha!! Carine and Julia totally rock, don't they!!

Kaye said...

wow!!!!! I want that paris vogue!!!!!! B&W photog: my favorite! It's true, they are just way hotter than we are!

Secretista said...

Woo, another fine long post!

Dita is always dressed to the nines!

LL... a lesbian. I can't fathom it, but I believe it.

May be it's because porn sometimes freaks me out or seeing another girl's genitals makes me feel like I'm sinning, but I don't like it when Fashion photoshoots expose breasts! Keep those tatas in!...at least cover the areolas!

Fashion Tidbits said...

i don't know if it's because of the rhinoplasty or the red hair but Ashlee Simpson is looking very "hot" nowadays

sara said...

Oh The Floral dress you found at the garage sale is amazing!

old alexa chung is very interesting, funny, and cute

discothequechic said...

Yetunde said...

I really like the purse you found as well as the jewelery (sp?)!

Mila looks lovely in that color.

Ashlees wedding...interesting. I cannot quite put a finger on the theme.

I think Jada is adorable. Maybe she is just really petite naturally?

agg! you post so much its hard to read. Anyways I really think that target is going down hill since Jovovich Hawk, so there isnt much you are missing.

Make Do & Mend said...

Are you having a complete comedy moment! So funny re Phoebe whatever - get you with your f word!
Just for info Tiger Lily's father was Micheal Hutchence. Pixie, Peaches et all made thier dad take her in when their mother od'd and died. Quite a tragic story and plus Fifi is oldest and sensible one - stepped into mothering role - just so ya know!

saray said...

Guerreira said...

The answer to your question about Peaches Honeyblossom, Pixie, Fifi Trixibelle and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily? LSD!

Neekoh said...

Ahh! Your new purchases are insanely cute. I am especially in love with the dresses -- so perfect for this transitional weather (well, down here in LA anyway).
And yes, Ryan, DUMP SCARLET! haha.

the_kitten said...
