Pin It


a week in twitpics: the sometimes edition

Sometimes I like to take pictures with my iPhone and post them to Twitter. Sometimes I like to post them here too.

The Home Office

Sometimes I like to start my day by checking my e-mails, making that day's to-do list and drinking my morning coffee in my bed. Sometimes Benny likes to join me. Sometimes he likes to join me when he's wet from his morning walk. Sometimes I let him get away with it.

Obnoxiously Mixing Prints

(Top from Barefoot Contessa, Vintage skirt, H&M necklace, Dolce Vita shoes)
"Hey Ash, is this too aggressive for the Obakki show?"
Sometimes I need a lifeline and have to phone a friend. Because sometimes, I actually dress like a haute mess.

Obnoxiously Wearing Obnoxiously Mixed Prints

Sometimes I like to wear obnoxiously mixed prints and 5 inch platform heels. Because sometimes, stomping around Vancouver like a T-Rex is cool.

Obakki's Fall/Winter 2011 Show

Sometimes I go to fashion shows. Last week, I went to Obakki's -- and it was great. I loved the dramatic setting inside of St. Andrew's-Wesley church and I especially loved the collection. I'll share more on this later.

Casual Business Meeting

(H&M trench, Forever 21 sweater, Vince tank, Something Else leggings, gifted Jellypop shoes)
Sometimes comfort is key. And sometimes, so is finding a great sale: I bought this cropped trench from H&M last week for only $10.

Pretending to be Ladylike

(T-shirt gifted from Bicyclette, Floral maxidress gifted from Banana Republic, Vintage chain, Cooperative shoes)
Sometimes I like to pretend to be ladylike by wearing pretty, flowery dresses. Sometimes (and most times) I don't really look that ladylike at all.

Sometimes I like to tweet. For first-hand Twitpics and "twitillating" conversation, you can find me on Twitter at @AHauteMess.

  4. Stomping around Vancouver like a T-Rex sounds awesome - last time I was there I skittled about like a velociraptor and it was less exciting. Your home office also reminds me a lot of mine, except swap out the adorable puppy for two tubby ginger cats.
