Queen Street West

These past few days have been spent roaming the busy streets of my city.  For years I have always driven past the lively lights, trendy coffee shops, and hip vintage stores.  Never have I ever actually taken time in my day to truly appreciate them.  Walking down Queen is such a wonderful experience whether your a tourist or pure Torontonian.  There's so much street art, so many stores - main stream or not, and lots of other people just roaming around doing exactly what you are doing.  It's not like those other busy streets where everyone is trying to get from point A to point B and don't even stop to acknowledge their surroundings.

One of the stores I stopped at was called The Black Market.  It was a dimly light shop where you had to walk 2 flights of steps just to reach the bottom.  Loud music is blasting and the place is packed with racks on racks of clothing and accessories.  Sketchy, no?  The sunnies I'm wearing in this post were from there and were $10.  I later found out a better place to get really cheap sunglasses that do n't even look cheesy.  Kensington market is that place people!

I only wish I took more photos but for some reason my phone kept dying even when I know I had 60%.  It's an IPhone 4s so I guess I have to understand that it's old for its time.  Hopefully the next phone I get (I'm hoping for an IPhone 6) will be an upgrade and have better camera quality.  I also heard that the IPhone 7 is rumoured to have  DSLR camera quality pictures which is insane!  But also super expensive.

In this post I talked about my jean jacket.  Well ta-da!  I finally took the time to sew on some patches and place the pins.  It's just about done.  For now :)  I'm hopping to collect more cool pins throughout my lifetime and use this jacket like a memory box.

I also am thinking of hunting for another jean jacket or varsity-like bomber jacket but this time to soley put vintage patches on.  I think it would look sick!

The back of the jacket says "ROOKIE".  If you know Tavi Gevinson you'd understand.  If you don't know who I'm talking about, well you do have Google.  Use it :)
