I’m not sure what it is with the transition between winter and spring that makes me feel so lethargic. That constant feeling of never wanting to leave home partly because of the dread of walking into deeper-than-they-look puddles and soaking your socks has lingered with me for the past few weeks, and sometimes it makes […]
It’s hard to want to dress up when the only places you visit are an enclosed studio, the bank and the grocery store. So, yeah, that’s where I’m at in life. Also, Edmonton is going through it’s billionth winter of the year, which obviously is an overstatement, but let my exaggeration tell you just how […]
It has become difficult to find reasons to re-wear clothing when buying new ones comes so cheap. But in honour of slow fashion, I’ve been challenging myself for the past few years to focus on the clothing I have and re-get-to-to-know-them.

Here’s to desperately hoping that New York will be significantly warmer for our arrival next week. ℅ Matter Matters […]
