I'm Not Interested In You In That Way

{Photos by Sabrina, wearing Olena Zylak toque, Isabel Marant booties, Forever 21 sweater, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag}

I met a guy who is an aviation mechanic. No doubt it's a neat job. Except he took me to the Aviation Museum on a date and kept pointing at planes saying "I worked on that". Who does that!? Does a doctor take his date to the hospital, point at a patient's kidney and say "I worked on that"? Does a lawyer take his date to the courtroom? Do I take my date to a cellphone store to look at Blackberries? Dafuq.

The toque is from Olena Zylak, %100 handmade in Canada, and will be showcasing at the upcoming Originals show in Ottawa. They can be purchased at Clothes by Muriel Dombret and Delilah. I dub this my 2012 Christmas toque.

  1. Does he work for the museum? Or is he so old the planes he worked on are now in the museum??? :) It's funny the things guys think will impress a pretty girl.

  4. That does sound a little odd...

    And awesome toque, it looks super warm and comfy. Which reminds me that I need to get a new winter hat.

  12. Haha, good old date stories. I once fainted on a date with a 'to be firefighter'. He panicked so much that I doubt he ever got through his training...
    You look awesome! Love the skirt, the shoes, the ring!

    Love,

  13. i would say he's trying to impress you, ms. julie. at least he's not pointing out girls he hooked up with saying i worked on that. ;) i'm kidding, but i really do hope he doesn't do that. would you be surprised if he did though? oh, you're looking stunning like always. not that you needed a reminder, but i gave you one anyway.

  20. Must a been an awkward date! Very cool accessories!

  21. Omg! That's so funny yet so sad at the same time! Poor guy! He was probably just trying to show off his masculinity by pointing out what he worked on.

  23. Such a weird date - that would definitely be a deal breaker for me (but I'm single, so maybe ignore my advice).
    I love your outfit - the booties are fantastic!

  24. What?! Yeah, that is just annoying. Surely he was trying to impress you but that is definitely a "don't" on a date. On the plus side, I am loving your outfit : )

  37. That guy sounds like a self-obsessed jerk, imo! Cute outfit too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. WOW. That's terrible! How annoying. You aren't in LA, are you? Haha. I got a lot of jerks dating down there. My best (well, worst) one was:
    I had a guy take me out for a movie (not dinner), and then drinks afterwards. I was 18. He took me to a movie, but had me empty out my purse so he could sneak a 42 ounce can of BEER into the theater...which he (alone) drank, and then promptly fell asleep during the movie. He snored.
    He then tried sneaking me into a bar, but we of course got kicked out, and I had said I didn't even want to go.
    When I noticed a babyseat in his trunk I asked him. He said it was his sisters. When I noticed more baby stuff, he finally said the baby stuff belonged to his CHILD. I thought he was 21. Turns out he was 32.
