Forget about the blue suede shoes that Carl Perkins made famous thanks to his song by the same name (or the Elvis version if you're more familiar) - this summer I am lusting after a different colour and I'll be singing a tune about pink suede pumps. Here are my absolute favourites this season. Always make sure to condition the suede before wearing otherwise you'll be singing the blues in some seriously stained shoes. 

Chez Pierre

Wandering around downtown is one of my favourite things to do on the weekend. Sometimes you discover a heritage home in a secret alley street and sometimes you find out Chez Pierre, in all its tacky glory, is still around; some things never change. Now that I'm a full time downtown dweller, all of these wondrous places are my backyard and I couldn't be more pleased. Also... Alexander Wang seems to match the inner city landscape perfectly.

So sorry for my absence, I have been in a moving vortex that hasn't let up and probably won't until the 29th. My parents sold my childhood home and we've been sorting through 23 years of memories and acquisitions. I'll bore you with those details when the chaos has subsided and the emotional digestion of the situation has begun; that will be followed by a tour of my new abode!

In the meantime, a little business to clear up: the winner of the Lomo'Instant camera is Michael Ng! You will be contacted by email sometime today (if I get my moving work finished jk).

This outfit was taken prior to the nightmare I've been living and while it's a cute outfit, these photos are difficult to look at without feeling an ounce of shame that I've actually been living in Birkenstocks / plaid shirt / boyfriend jeans / repeat. Is moving ever seamless or sartorially pleasing? Maybe just the aftermath.
