Knit Racerback

I’m starting to fall in love with knits, but when it comes to maintenance, I’m not much of a fan. I have ruined way too many, expensive pieces of clothing due to laziness. Although most ‘Dry Clean Only’ items are made of the best fabrics, they are quite inconvenient.

Enough exposure of my Snorlax personality and more on this knit racerback. Knit is a technique often used for thick sweaters, but have you heard of a (little) see-through, racerback? And in a mixture of blue & red? I’m sold. This is why Club Monaco is one of my favourite stores.

If the straps on this top were any thinner, my shoulders would appear broader. The depth of halter tops is another factor to consider. Some styles are made with round necks and this constrictive construction is not flattering to shorter necks. Therefore, if you want an illusion of a longer neck, choose pieces with a deeper neckline. Try on & experiment with several halter tops in order to learn and find what’s ideal for your own body type.DSC04391DSC04392DSC04386

On a completely different side note, I went to Don Day again! Samgyeopsal wrapped with jalapeño and gochujang is so good, but incredibly spicy!DSC04401 Oh Calgary, you looked pretty tonight.DSC04397

Monochromatic and Bloody

Five hours of insufficient sleep later, with lingering feelings from Phantom of the Opera the night prior, one can only dress in monochrome and bloody tints.


Everyone wakes up one morning knowing that it will be a t-shirt and jeans kind of day. Well, today was my day. It’s a surprise that I even managed to get out of bed.

With scenes from Phantom of the Opera still fresh in my mind, I may well continue sorrowing at its dramatic plot with this black V-neck paired with my striped skinnies. Not wanting to look any duller with my already sunken eyes, a much needed call for colour brought bloody tints of red to my lips and feet. Since the stripes on my jeans are thin and narrow, it does not clash with my shoes but instead, attracts interest to the play in patterns.

To indicate caution for today’s highly irritable nature, it was appropriate that I wear my bullet necklace.
