Dress used as a Top Zara | Shorts and Belt ASOS | Shoes Thrifted
For the past weekend me and some friends went to the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. It was my first time going ever, and I'm hooked. I'm definitely buying a fringe pass next year. Essentially it's a bunch of different plays/skits/improv shows at different venues on different days of the week around downtown Winnipeg. It gives us something to do and plus, it's a whole lot of fun. Today we saw the Dungeons and Dragons show! Yes, I'm a geek. It was hilarious, actually. I'm a new fan. :)
We also had sushi today. Mmm, sushi.
Yesterday we went fringing too. We hung out around downtown. Oh, I also tried my new contact lenses. I'm still getting used to them. I haven't worn them in 7 years. I'm not sure what to think about it. I think I like glasses better, aesthetic-wise. Probably because glasses are my version of a safety blanket if you know what I mean. I hide behind them, it's weird seeing my face without anything on them! One thing I am happy about, however, is that I can wear sunglasses! I bought a pair at a vintage shop yesterday, I'll show them later on.
We also tried Smoke's Poutinerie at the Exchange and I was very disappointed. I was expecting a full-blown Quebec-style poutine and I didn't. Me and my boyfriend were very disappointed. I didn't get a picture of the "traditional" poutine but it's gravy with cheese curds and ehhh, it was meh. Oh well. The other pictures are the Beef Peppercorn poutine and my friends Bacon Cheeseburger poutine. I took the regular size (which was more than enough) and my friend + boyfriend took the large size which is enough to feed two people. If you are in Winnipeg and you're wanting to try it out, I guess go once. I think it's just a novelty thing because this city does not know how to deliver a good poutine... this is the closest it will get to a Quebec-style poutine. Then again I hate potatoes so that might be something. But my boyfriend loves 'em and he hates this place, so...
Yeah, that's it.
