Lookbook: Cozy and Hippy

My mother and I are very different people. When it comes to fashion, she likes thrift and vintage clothes while I'm.. a label whore. I can't help it. But really, we are all materialistic. Even the dirtiest hippy have bought an organic lip gloss, some unnecessary hair accessory for their dreads, or a "caf skin and cedar from the land of yuk tuk blessed by a Shaolin monk" bongo drum to brag to their hippy friends while the pope sits on his throne with shaws covered in gold and exotic fabric worth thousands of dollars.

Hanging out in Victoria, BC with nothing better to do, I accepted a challenge from my sisters to do a few lookbook posts only wearing my mom's thrift and vintage clothing. Jackets and shoes can be mine (since our sizes are different) but everything else should be borrowed- and here's one of the looks I came up with.

Shirt, Belt and Skirt: Vintage and Thrift from my mom
Shoes: polished with soy and hand sewn by a Nunavut vegan
Jacket: 100% hemp and blessed by a Rastafarian during a ring of fire ritual

* disclaimer: origin of shoes and jacket may or may not be accurate. But
it sure would impress the hippies here on the west coast.

For the next few days I will be busy with meet ups and going to Vancouver to celebrate New Years Eve. So have a great NYE everyone!
