in which the lemmings wear belts

Originally uploaded by sequin faery.

after many frustrating attempts to find some new clothes for work (and a dress for a party last night) i have come to the realization that i should just give up.

every store i have set foot in has the exact same clothing in it that i saw in 4 other stores, and each with a belt to jazz it up. i really don't want a belt on my dress, a belt around my waist (aside from pants 'cause generally that's more on my hips) creates the illusion of a race between my boobs to see which one can cross over said belt first.

my next area of concern would have to be the footless tights under skirts, the look i wore in the late 80's early 90's while flipping through my Teen Beat mag, dreaming of jordan knight asking me to marry him. or how about the long, just a whisper from the knee, tube-like shorts? i also wore those back in the Teen Beat days only i painted all over them with awesome neon and puff paint.

i often wonder if some fashion fads are created just to see how much like sheep, like lemmings we all are. they dress a celebrity or 2 up in a ridiculous outfit, it catches on, every store starts carrying it (or versions of it), and the fashion world sits in the wings laughing all the way to the bank.

just my little rant, to each his own. i really need some new clothes for work but the variety is seriously lacking out there and i can't afford couture.

in which i need repose

i'm finally getting away from the familiar, 4 days off and i'm hitting the road with them. damian and i decided last week to take a mini road trip to philadelphia since this might be the only vacation time we get together for the next while.

he went a couple years ago for a hockey game and loved the city, being a huge Rocky fan he would though wouldn't he? he said me and my camera would love the architecture so that's where we're heading.

i can't wait to get away from the city, sure we're just going straight into another city but it'll be a different atmosphere, somewhere i've never been. i certainly didn't want to waste my long weekend away stuck inside bored OR roaming the same tired streets of toronto i always roam. i've just been feeling very stale lately, and god, i have no energy. i'm hoping this tiny getaway will help re-charge my batteries..

can i just say i'm a little bit concerned that this look is making its comeback? i wore that outfit to an NKOTB legs were THAT skinny too.
