Kilts n' Stuff


I know, I know. It's the classic blogger post. Every few months there is the obligatory "Sorry I haven't been posting" post. So, here it is. My "Sorry I haven't been posting" post. The post is usually filled with multiple excuses, so here they are. The last few weeks have been tough for me. I was unemployed for the summer which some of extended itself into the fall season. My money eventually drained and I had to do the inevitable: Job hunt. I knew I wanted to find something that was at least a wee bit creative, but my search wasn't going so well for the first little while. After a few weeks my angel of a friend referred me to work reception with her at a beautiful hair salon in the city. It's actually a dream job for anyone who has been forced to wear a uniform in a past job. I have complete outfit freedom for the first time ever and it is so liberating! YESSSSSSSS! So that's what I've been up to for the past few weeks. The silver lining in this unplanned hiatus from my blog? I've now get to work at a job where encouraged to dress as crazy as I want every day. Hopefully that means more fun outfits and posts on my blog! Horray!

Jacket - H&M / Shirt - Raf Simons x Fred Perry / Kilt - Thrift / Socks - H&M / Shoes - Opening Ceremony / Hat - Actual Pain / Necklace - DIY

The kilt is such a fluke. I went to a thrift store looking for one and actually found it. If any of you are thrifters you know that the number one rule of thrift shopping is to not go looking for anything specific. It never works out in your favor. The thrifting Gods must had been with my that day because I found this amaaaaazing black kilt. It needed a bit of an alteration but it was super easy to do. Hallelujah!

Yayyyy new post! Congrats on the new job. :)

Love kilts! Definitely need to go look for one... or not look for one and just find it like you did. Probably the latter, haha. Also, your shoes are awesome!

Mat said...

well done on the job man, least it gets you busy. you wouldnt get that freedom in the majority of salons in the uk, usually it's a white tabard thing.

I've been trying to convince my friends that kilts are awesome. You styled it to perfection

Yth said...

Great styling. I love all the black and then those vibrant red socks and the red lining of those shoes. How great you can wear anything to work now, must've been such a relief, haha. Where did you got the black totebag by the way? I love it & need one ASAP!

Kylie said...

LOL someone asked about the bag! Sorry I guess I shouldn't have told you not to list it, haha

I know it's been said before.. but the socks are a great touch.

Teemu said...

HE'S BAAAAACCCCKKKKKKKK!!

What the hell..? You were unemployed for the whole summer? What the fuck, why don't you don't work for some fashion magazine or MTV or something, you are so talented..??! Nothing wrong with the hair salon job, but I'm a bit scocked. It's like hearing that Donatella Versace works at a grocery store... You know what I mean. :o But good thing that you now have a job and that everything is ok for you, and hope we'll have more updates in the near future ;) xx Hugs Andrew!

P.S. Amazing kilt! I never find anything that I'm looking if I go to a thrift market, haha.

Jess said...

Congratulations on the new job. Being able to wear what I want (& have no one even my boss comment on anything) is one of the best parts of it! I love the hard/soft in this outfit & well done on the thrifting. PS I want your hat.
