Happy Halloween everyone! The other day, in anticipation for this awesome holiday, Stu and I decorated the outside of his house for the trick-or-treaters! I came over in my best fall clothes: my favourite cape, my brown lace up booties and my denim shirt (buttoned all the way up of course). We put up fake spiderwebs, skull garland and a cute green skeleton. Tonight we're having pizza and beer and watching the Shining, which I have NEVER seen (don't make fun of me guys). I love Halloween, what did everyone dress up as?

Stu is my favourite: upon opening the first package of spider webs, he went over to the bushes and placed it like this. I had to instruct him in the art of actually spreading out the cotton so it looks somewhat like a real spiderweb, he didn't know.

Melita in the Sand Dunes

These are some images from a shoot I styled a while ago. This shoot was a crazy experience; the "sand dunes" you see are actually huge hills of sand on a construction site (which apparently has public access). I was unfortunately SO windy and SO hot that day so the makeup artist was a wreck. I was also a wreck about the clothes getting ruined but they were luckily fine! I couldn't get into the shower soon enough after this shoot, it wasn't nice sand that you find at the beach, it was really dusty, fine sand that caked on my feet and clothes and hair.

Crop-top from Guess, Shorts from H&M, Boots from Forever 21, Turban is my own from Urban Outfitters a long time ago.

drinks at Drink

Tonight, Stu and I went for drinks at Drink, a cute little cocktail lounge in New Westminster. We went out to celebrate him finishing midterms for the year! He's in third year microbiology so he has to work HARD, I don't envy him but I do admire his drive.

We suited up in our most wind-proof gear and walked over to Drink for margarita's (me) and dark beer (him).

He's making a faaaaaaace

sorry about my atrocious posing...

I wore my new (to me, second hand) pink suede bomber. I bought it in hopes of getting it dry-cleaned but to my chagrin, no dry cleaner would take it! They said
- if they tried to clean it, the pink would fade
- the chemicals would melt the suede
- they could send it away for cleaning but it would cost $70-$80!
Considering that is 4 times what I paid for this sucker, I declined. It isn't terribly stained or gross, the colour is just a little bit dull from wear. It still works though, Stu even called it "badass" so, there you have it.

Showing off my new Joe nailpolish, in Jade. Their formula is so great, super easy to apply and nice and opaque!
