She explained that the piece would be feature on people with interesting hair styles. Accompanying the photos would be an interview with questions related to hair and identity. I said yes without question because it’s Worn Journal and it’s a great topic that my (lack of) hair could contribute to.

I brought a few different outfits to choose from for the shoot but the final decision was the Smythe Warbler Tribute Blazer, earring by Eliza Kozurno and a leather Tshirt by Danier. It was late July when this photo was taken and it was roasting outside. With the …

Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Olympia Black Leather Sandals You wouldn’t know by the weather in Toronto but it’s Springtime and I’m getting sandals on the brain. I’m kinda over my gladiators. I barely wore them last year as I didn’t have the heart. There were too many bad knee-high gladiator boot sandal things going on and in horrible colour schemes too. I’m now looking for more interesting sandals to fill the void. This is where these Olympia Black Leather Sandals from Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent come in. You can purchase these sandals through the Canadian online retailer S|Sense. Shipping is free for Canada.
