Paper Crowns

Bonjour, mon amis! Je ne comprend pas Francais; mais je parle Anglais.
So I will speak English from now on. Are you impressed with my knowledge of french? I went to a french school in Quebec for 3 weeks over the summer. I was in the sped class. But I did not google translate that. Only to see if it wrote it correctly. Which I didn't and then fixed, SHHH YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW.

I have a LOOK for you today! Aren't you excitedd? I would be, it's pretty rare. Or I wouldn't, I tend to get things wrong when there's a 50% chance of it. Optimism, I tell you.

Isn't it polkadot-ful? Thee skirt is from the Etsy Seller Moon Chen, which I got for Christmas, and I love it. Almost as much as I like the crown from my cracker, and the Diplodocus-Allosaurus-Rex that my sister gave me. I wore this Christmas Day but my laptop chose that evening to die. Merry Christmas.

...and Happy New Year! :D

Enjoy it. Unless you're a scrooge or you don't celebrate Christmas. Happy Holidays anyway.

Nothing to wear!

I want to update this blog. Unfortunately I've been suffering from miserable-itis. Also known under it's more common name, "The powercord is broken and battery needs replacing disease". That plus boredom, no inspiration and the common cold. You know when you open up your closet full of clothes and say, "I have nothing to wear!"? That's what my entire last 3 monthes have felt like. That's why I keep repeating, "I need a job. I need a job." Because Job=Money. I think there are about 9 things in my closet/drawers that I actually like to wear. That includes pants, skirts, sweaters, shirts, vests. Nothing else fits right and nothing else feels like me.
Sometimes I feel like I have way too much clothes and sometimes I feel like I don't have enough. Maybe that's cause its mostly all junk. If, when I am 16, and I start working at Tim Hortons or something, I should pick some things out of my closet that I like wearing, then some neccessaties, and start over from there. My entire amount of clothes looks like a junkpile to me. This is irritating. Do you ever feel like this, o followers of mine?

(After leaving this for a while, I've reread it and realize that this makes me sound selfish; there are people in the world who have no money for any clothes at all, and I am complaining about how I have nothing to wear, even though I have piles upon piles of clothing. If I were to restart my closet, I would take everything I'm not keeping and donate it to a charity, just as I have always done. I hope that anyone reading this would also do the same; doing so helps less fortunate and the enviroment by keeping it out of landfills and whatnot. All around win!)

I know there haven't been many posts recently, I just haven't been feeling the inspiration, fashion wise. No ideas. But I still have lots of other types of ideas, and I still want to flaunt them in your face, so I made a tumblr! For all things awesome. Any thing I like can be in it, like that book I want to read, 14,000 things to be happy about. I want to read that badly. Or at least own it so that when I am feeling sad about things I can read it and be all, Oh, right! Life is pretty sweet! Well, I already do that, but just in case I needed an extra reminder because thinking of balloons and polaroids and colourful photography and vintage bicycles didn't do it for me, but usually it does.

Oh,and the tumblr I'm  forgetting about. It's here, if you'd like to take a look. Because IMHO, It's worth taking a look. But only a look, it's not really worth a stare yet.

It's called, Shelle Like Awesome Things. The background is a picture of the cartoon Justice League. : D

Hats don't fit on Triceratops, dang it.

It snowed today. Like, a lot. It was our first actual full-on snow, which I suppose is fitting since tomorrow is December 1st. Advent Calender on Neopets and everything. The lights even went out for a few seconds and it was dark out by 4:30.

The dinosaurs are celebrating early.

Oh, look they've gone and put up a tree, and decorated, and changed the border just for you. Bless their plastic hearts.
My, but Mr.Rexx looks awfully dashing in his scrooge hat. Poor Dippy can't write for shiz though. A capital O in the middle of a word? For shame.

Well I suppose that's all then. I've got to go draw things instead of buying actual presents because I have -40 to -60 dollars. So I have to be creative. BUY!

By which I meant BYE! It seemed like it should be spelled differently when I thought of it.

Dinos Spell Colour with a U.

Why hello thur random citizens of countries I've never been to but will be visiting around Easter (that is, if you Live in Italy or Greece. I don't know why I capitalized Live, that was an accident.)

 Long time no see, yes? Goodness I hate that expression. I don't know why I use it. Actually I don't, just for you, aren't you so lucky? It sounds so grammaticaly incorrect to me. Long time I no see you I talk broken english. Yeahhhhhh.

 Anyways, now that I've gotten past my Hello, it's been awhile beginning, I've got to tell you why that is. It's cause I'm lazy, so now on to what's really important. Fashion Fledgling is named so because I am a fledgling when it comes to fashion and it's not really necassary( Idontknowifthat'sspelledrightméwhichismynewwayofsayingmehwhichmeanswhateverbasically )
for me to only post fashion related things because if I do that then I'll hardly ever post anything cause I'm lazy like that.


Also. I hate parades. And dealing with shiz. Shiz and parades because we only have boring parades in the fall when its cold as opposed to interesting parades in the summer. I spent 5 hours of bs outside in the cold in my cadet sweater and then the people we were volunteering for decided we werent gonna be in the parade and took our candy. YEAH BASICALLY WHAT HAPPENED. Also other shiz was on the go this weekend and I dont wanna even get in to that.
SO ANYWAYS. My name is Shelle and I approve this message.

Scientists are wrong. Triceratops was a real dinosaur and I have the plastic model to prove it.
I like coloured text and dinosaurs and the Capslock button and also the Canadian spelling of colour. No, colour is not a french word.

Leather Pants and other 90s Throwbacks

This post isn't about trends I've spotted, or trends or other people have spotted and blogged about for me to read. It was an original concept of mine, except not at all, really.
In the continuation of rediscovering old trends such as The Skinny Jean and The Clog I bring you:

Leather Pants.

About a week ago, I was thinking about the trend of shiny leggings, and that brought me to the unoriginal idea of leather pants. What would leather pants look like if someone brought those back? Apparently I wasn't the only one wondering. Above are three examples that I liked and were under the wonderfully low budget of $300. Seriously. Maybe it's because I don't have any money, but that sounds like an awful lot. Even for leather, and these were on the low end of the price scale!

The first pair are riding style pants with leather on the inside, while the other two are full leather pants. I really like this take on leather pants; skinny, black, low rise.
As opposed to the wonderful 90s version:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is pretty sick, but her leather pants were scary sometimes. Maybe it's the 90's part.

These go against everything I just listed, but still look amazing.

This picture ^ belongs to ClaireInc. I advise you visit that site. It's absolutely amazing and I love it and I want to buy everything they ever sell. Ever.
Also while I was searching, I came across another lovely peice of clothing.

Cargo Pants.

Do you remember these? I wore them in grade 6. Not the 90s, but still a few years ago. I like these better. Granted, the 1st pair aren't actually cargo pants, they're twill, but they have deep pockets on the leg and are green. And both are awesome and I NEED A JOB TO BUY SHIZ.

Teen Female Horror Story

I was going to update today. That post can be saved for tomorrow, because right now I have a (true) almost-horror story for you.

Today began almost like any other; I'd slept on the couch in my living room because the filter on my sister's fish tank was too loud so I couldn't sleep, and I woke up early because of this. Around 9 am. Thats realllyyy early for me. My mom told me she was going to town around 12 pm. I asked if I could go with her, thinking I'd be bored at home. She said yes and off I went for my shower. After, I came back to get dressed.

Little did I know of the horror that was lurking behind my closet doors.

I didn't notice when I first opened them. A couple sweaters that didn't belong to me. No big deal, I was a little annoyed as this happens very often, but I moved them over to my sister's side of the closet.
Then I got a good look at my side.
Every single sweater in there was in the wrong spot. My colour-categorized collection of sweaters, and each one was out of place and on the rack backwards.

I confronted the person I knew to be guilty; they got angry. They did it because they couldn't get in to my closet.

I was upset, naturally. Not really angry, but upset, because my orangized sweater collection was now a mess unecessarily, and I would have to spend quite a bit of time putting it back in order. There wasn't much I could do then, because we were leaving for town, so I'd have to fix it later.

When later came, I pulled out all of my sweaters. I began putting them back on hangers and in the closet, in their proper order. Then I noticed something else. Most of my dresses were at the back of my closet, again in the wrong order and hung backwards. This time I voiced my unhappyness. Loudly. I was heard, but I yelled "Nevermind!" and went back to fixing things. I was putting the dresses back next to the jeans when I noticed something wrong again (like the gift that keeps giving. sort of.)

Every single pair of jeans were also out of order and also hung backwards. (By backwards, I mean the hanger points in instead of out, making it hard to get the hanger and the item on it.)

Frustrated is not a strong enough word to describe how I felt. Neither will Exasperated do the job.
At this point I pulled everything out and started over.

I've just spent an hour and a half fixing this person's work.



btw, sorry if your reaction is TL;DR. I want my sympathy, NOW! jk. but yeah. I had to complain cause this sucked. I'm very unhappy.

Fashion of the Day.

Well, Hey there. *Has no comment on two week absense.

The zipper on my shorts wouldnt go up any farther and also, randomly appearing tights are random. I thought these were mine but apparently not so as mine do not have this cool geometric print on the go. Nor do their non-existant print end half way up my thighs, but shush.

I felt pretty retro-80's today. It was pretty sick, ya know?

I even found shoes to wear with this outfit outside of my regular converse or black boots.
I don't wear my shoes in the house though and I was too lazy to go get them. meh.

And because this has never been strictly a fashion blog at all, here's a peek at my sister's birthday cake for tomorrow. I did a lot of the baking-from-a-box part.

Plus there's these glow-in-the-dark bracelets left over from yesterday that I'm pretty excited about.

Happy belated Halloween, guys. How did yours go? Did you go trick or treating? Did you even dress up? Let me know in the comments. :)

Outfit Details
T Shirt//"Borrowed" from my friend. I luffs it.
Cardigan//2nd from my mother.
Shorts//Garage, I think.
Tights// ...no idea.
Sneakers! Urban Planet. They have a tattoo print on them, and the are canvas and falling apart because I love/wore them so often. Until my friend-I-borrowed-this-shirt-from wore them and stretched them out. fdjhvbhbfdnhjhdfuh gah.

Anyways. Thanks for reading! I always appreciate it.
Luffs ya, kthxbaiguiz.

BeatleMania/ That didn't actually come up as much as I thought it would, but what the heck.

Boy, am I excited to be back. Like super duper. I think I've finally got this down: dress how I want to and not how I think people would like me to. Thats the point, right? Geez, I can be so dumb sometimes. Anyway, be on the look out for an outfit post/ real update today. Lets do this, yeah! I am a sick hyper kid. And by sick I mean I have the flu, not that I am a creepy 40 year old pervert. right.

Update! I've been sick and was not up to taking pictures, but what the hey, I promised so I did them. At half past 12 am. Perhaps I should do them in the day when the light does not suck, maybe? Sounds like an idea.

Do you recognize this spot? This was where my first outfit pictures (ever!) were taken. It was day time, of course, and I remember I was wearing jeans, until I decided "You know what, screw it. I'm gonna start my blog now." pulled on a black skirt I never wore and that was that. I don't know how far I've come since then. I think I atleast update more than I did then. Possibly. Actually, maybe less. hmmmm.

Outfit details:
Dress//Urban Planet (Yes, it's a dress. I know you can't see it well, but it's the one I wore back in April, here. )
AwesomePossum Socks//Walmart.

So today a lot of fun things happened, besides being sick of course.
I got to see my best friend after a 1week and a half cause she was in Florida, getting a sunburn.

There were failure croissants.

There was Scabbers, and Bertie Bott's All Flavoured Beans (I advise you to never bite in to vomit or earthworm flavoured beans during a class.), there was random note passing in science and bio class. There was visiting my friends house after school for chocolate milk. There was my sister telling me I looked very "Beatle" today, hair wise. Also I have no school tomorrow, and everything is excellent :D.

You know, besides being sick.

Hey Ya'll

I said I was ditching you guys for a week for some creative inspiration.

I lied. I like you too much.

Anyways, with out the imaginary pressure I was feeling, I've feel like i've been thriving. I wore jeans two days in a row, and a friend told me that it was strange to see me in pants. I actually like getting dressed in the morning, because I know I'm not trying to impress anybody. Except for me. And I'm happy with my decision to cut the outfit posts right now, because I have time to get myself together and start with a clean slate. New layout and stuffs, it's nice.

Btw, my mom is buying me some vintage thingys off etsy for christmas. I'm trying to narrow down the list.

DeerNana on Etsy.
AnimalHeadVintage on Etsy

YellowJacketVintage on Etsy

ApricotBabyBaby on Etsy
MoonChen on Etsy

There was another item on the list but it was sold today :( I am absolutely in love with the polkadots. There are quite a lot of polka dots.

On another note, haircut tomorrow.



 I'm very much in love with their hair. I think I might try a twist on Elin's, or something close. I'd like to hear you thoughts.
Lots of Love, Shelle :)

Sia-My Love

I'm tired of this. I can't believe how completely uninspired I've been with my blog, "thinking I'll do it and it'll be over with it"about my outfit posts, all the while completely wishing my blog could be what I want it to be. It's funny, nobody asked me to do this and write a blog about my kind-of-fail style, I decided of my own accord to write it, and yet I am feeling the pressure for not being good enough. It's such an accomplishment to me, that I've gained my followers and with determination, got this far, but in the monthes this blog has existed not much has happened. If I want this to change, I must do something about it.

I need a clean slate. No outfit posts this week, so I can get my thoughts in order, but Monday morning of next week is my new leaf. I think I need some encouragement, because even with the precious followers I have, I feel as if no one cares. Why blog for nobody? Of course, a person won't get anywhere with no talent (Unless that person is Paris Hilton), but I can always try. Trying is the important aspect I think. And I should probably stop trying to blog "correctly." I will write about things I love. I love a lot of things.

Waffles, Balloons, Photography and Polaroids, Vintage clothing, the colour Yellow, England. Beaches and summertime, clouds, reallly old children's books, kawaii shit like Kerropi, and music. Did you know I played piano? Not very well, but I like to. I also swim. Swimming is fun. So is chocolate milk, and water balloon fights, and hide and seek, good games of spotlight, drama class, The Beatles, polka dots and swishy skirts. Ribbon and bright colours and making new friends, and Harry Potter, and Canada's way of spelling things except for I like Gray over Grey. And coffee and lemonade and tea, and stripes and rainbows and old daguerreotype cameras, and Regency-era movies. Peter pan collars and fake pearls and t shirts. Not my high school, though. I hate my high school. It's a creativity-squashing prison full of egotistical boys and cookie-cutter girls. I wish I could live in Europe as an adult instead. (You are thinking that the adult life is not so great compared to that of a teenagers, but atleast you have your freedom. I can't even drive.)

I want to wear a bright, cheerfully-patterened dress with puffy sleeves and a full skirt to school tomorrow. Unfortunately for me, I do not own such a dress. I guess I should learn to sew well and make one. Andbody offering lessons that will teach  me to make a perfectly-fitted dress by tomorrow morning? I kid, but perhaps I really should learn to sew and make my own clothes.

Lots of Love,

ps I likes Shelle more then Shellie. Anyone who wishes to use the former, I have no objections.
pss song has nothing to do with this post, i just like it.

I wonder when fall got here, it took me by surprise.

I will apoligize for the break, because I've been sick and jeans and t-shirts are my thing when I'm sick. I started this blog to motivate myself to get out of the jeans-and-t-shirt zone, but they're so easy. I can't help but slip. I have come a long way, slips and all, and I think my style has improved considerably since last March when I started this blog (has it really been that long? Finally, I've learned that determination will get you somewhere. Take that, lazy self). I like to layer, and mix patterns and where sun dresses in fall. If my sisters annoying friend thinks that I'm weird because of this, well then she can just suck it cause three different people complimented my leggings and asked me where I'd got(gotten?) them.

I really hate my face here, gah.

Coat // Gift from my sister :)
Shirt// Urban Planet, again maybe?
Skirt// Suzy Shier
and Converse. <3

*This post has actually been sitting in blogger for the last couple days because of how busy I've been with school work. Sighh.
And did I forget to mention, if anyone wonders why my comments are moderated, it's so that I know when I get them and am sure to read them. : )

Nerdfighters, everywhere!

Yeah, you probably don't get the reference. Look up the VlogBrothers on youtube,please. For me?
 I didnt actually wear the leggings to school today, I put them on this evening when I went to the EF tour meeting.I can't seem to understand the concept of "cold" in the mornings when I getting dressed for school. I think tomorrow my outfit will involve pants. Maybe.

Anyways, I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for the blog? For example, would you like me to do some inspiration posts, or maybe interview my favourite bloggers, (Yeah, I'm stealing that idea from *The Clothes Horse) or a post of things I'd like to own for my wardrobe, or maybe you'd like to kick start my Fashion Design career and challenge me to pull out my sewing machine to try to make something for a barbie (Uh, I really need a kick in the pants.) rather than just outfit posts with random things in between. It's up to you, what ever you'd like to see me do, I'll try it. Unless I don't think it's something I'd like, but I will most likely try it.

Outfit Details
Top//Second Hand
Skirt//Urban Planet
(5 dollars for a skirt. Can you blame me for shopping there?)
Leggings//Sirens, maybe? Or Ardenes.

The vest was 6 dollars and the necklace (which is an elephant, but it's on backwards) was about the same. I love walmart clearance.

You be the artist, and make me out of clay

Hey Guys. I quite like today's outfit, and the fact that I managed the pictures all by myself. Do you like my kitchen?

On a side note, I've been listening to Ellie Goulding all day. I like her, too.

Outfit Details:
Skirt// Some where in Europe. My sister bought it on one of her travels. :)
Top//Urban Planet

You've actually seen both before, do you remember? Assignment! Find the posts in which I wore this skirt and top. :)

A Tale of Two Pretties

Once upon a time, a girl called Michelle was looking through pictures on Lookbook.nu.
There she found the profiles of 2 girls.

*Hedvig, and


Michelle fell absolutely in love and so wanted to share her loves with the world. The End.

*Links to their lookbooks.

Thoughts on the new background?

I Can Explain.

I feel like a horrible blogger, because I make promises I dont keep. I intended to do outfit posts every day for 30 days, but I did not update yesterday, for no reason other than that I was tired and too engrossed in what I was doing to get the deed done. The activity I was so absorbed in, among a few others, was watching Gulliver's Travels. Did you expect it? Well, no, of course you didn't, because a personality is not something seen commonly on this blog. The truth is that I love to read, and learn, and watch movies in which the characters carry charm of days long ago. But I am also undeditacted and not a hard worker.
Except- I am dedicated to the world of imaginary but not reality. I am dedicated to learning and reading, devouring books with large bites, but am not dedicated to teaching others that which I am not sure I know (because I am more likely to look rediculous than sound intelligent). I like to write, thinking up plots and creating maps and character sketches and writing scenes, but never getting any farther. I want to share my ideas, but am afraid to be taken for a fool. I am exausted for trying so hard to impress others, when who should I try so hard to impress but myself? There is no "Right" way to blog. I can't help but take inspiration from other blogs, and want to write "correctly", but this a personal style fashion blog. There is no right way. For me, there is only my way, and I should better start writing that way if I want anyone to read it and not call me a failwhale. Up till now I feel like I've been a failwhale, but from now on I will try to be the ever-epic Narwhal. You know, the unicorns that that live in the water. They exist, didn't you know?

So theres this new trend

This new trend is wearing your summer clothes during autumn. It's huge, everybody is doing it-

Except really I'm just kidding, although it would be pretty funny if all of a sudden girls were wearing sun dresses and flip flops to school. This strange intro is because of what I wore today: a summer dress and a wool sweater that does an excellent job of keeping in heat, and shorts.

I'm actually in love with this dress. I have no close ups for you, unfortunately, because I kind of forgot. Tomorrow I'll update.

But while wearing summer clothes for autumn isn't actually a hot trend on the runways, it does give me more options. I feel less restricted if I can still wear my pretty summer clothes. Luckily enough I am not required to wear tights or leggings with a dress yet, as it isn't that cold.

 On another note:
My day back in school was nice, because I was unreasonably happy for a very silly and very nice reason. Then after lunch I basically fell asleep in my seat. :)

Outfit of the Day for 30 consecutive days: Days 2 & 3

What happened to yesterday's outfit is Hurricane Igor. The awful storm that took away our electricity yesterday which is why I didnt update. Being with out a stove or flushing toilet from 3:30 pm until 3 am kind of sucked, but its all good now - here at my house, but St John's east is still without power, many roads have been washed away and (the saddest news of all) an 80 year old man was swept out to sea when his driveway washed out from under him. This was easily the worst storm I've ever experienced, as most we tend to only get the end of, but the eye of the storm passed right over us yesterday. The wind was so loud, and terrifying and at one point we thought the roof was being torn off.

Not having lights made it difficult for my younger sister to take pictures of my
 non-exciting outfit. This is about as good as it gets.
I went down the road next to mine and took some pictures of the damage.

Several fallen trees in a front yard

A new pond that hadnt been there before.

And then my friends and I went to the park, and had loads of fun, and walked my friend Emily home, and then Chantelle took my outfit pictures. Chantelle is starting up her own fashion blog soon, so I'll give you a link to that in a couple of days.
