Inspired By.....

My inspirations are triggered by so many factors, so usually when I get asked " Spencer, what inspires you?" I always give answer. But it just never really seems fulfilling to me, like my words are just not able to complete project how I really feel.

So rather than just telling you I'd rather just share with you what triggers me at random. It can be clothing, paintings, animals, music, anything and everything that involves and artistic element pretty much really sets me off. These photos below are all via Tumblr so unfortunately I have no background on any of them or where their original source is.

Musical Indulgence #3

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities." - Dr. Seuss

Button Up - Ralph Lauren
Tie - Ralph Lauren
Sweater - Penguin
Pants - A.A
Shoes - Mcnairy X Keds

My lack of posts!?!?! Ye, school has rudely interrupted my summer vacation. Well I must say it was great while it lasted. When school rolls in we all know fall is right around the corner. Fall actually just so happens to be my favorite season. It's not to hot and not too cold, its just right.
With every season there are usually certain staples that accompany them. For fall it tends to be layering, scarves, tweed, herringbone, etc. Color palettes also are thrown into the transition from summer to fall. Summer colors : red, baby blue, yellow are traded in for falls: truffle, navy, brown. But this fall I've decided to incorporate brighter hues that you most likely wouldn't see in many fall outfits.

Detailing is no exception to these turn of events. When choosing bright hues, they necessary do not have to be at big main focus of your outfit. Detailing can be a great substitute to portray these color ways. Without feeling a bit loud and over the top.
These are probably the most satisfying purchase I have made in a long time. Keds and Mark Mcnairy teamed up this fall for the second time. And produced this magnificent piece of work. These shoes offer Keds classical form/silhouette with a upper heavy canvas materials paired with Mcnairy's brick sole. I really can't complain they fit fantastically and have such a simple structure. But yet manage to draw so much attention due to it's sole.

ProprHello - Simane

As you all know a few weeks ago I took some time out and headed out to Ottawa to catch up with friends and family. I also got a chance to shoot this new installment of Propr Hello.

We all have that one friend who has such a corky and free spirited personality at all times. He or she can always bring light to any dark situation that you may come across. And here's mine meet Simane, what I find intriguing about Simane is her love for Asian culture, as well she always finds the time to posting new self portraits of herself everyday on Facebook. Till this day she has not yet once used the same facial expression in any of her images lol.

So we took a lil road trip a bit out of town to reach this mellow scenery of great open field, which ended in a pleasant day of photography.

23 Years Young

This week will be a pretty hectic week for me school has already kicked off so I’m really trying to transition my summer mode into school season. On top of that Montreal Fashion Week begins this week, well actually today. Getting to interact and meet new people is always a plus in my books. Montreal Fashion Week Festivities always fulfill my needs of inspiration whether it’s positive vibes or even negative at time, I can always take something from it and add to my content. And finally to top it all off my birthday is tomorrow.

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
Jacket - Club Monaco
Camo Button Up - Tommy Hilfiger
Pants - American Apparel
Shoes - Palladium
It will be 23 years that I have walked this earth, and at this moment I feel like it’s only been 2. Learning and growing more everyday has really helped me throughout time to really try and keep my thoughts fresh and my body young. Many say 23 is slowly the beginning of the end. The end being a career, marriage, kids, etc. I hear it so often that at time I believe it, and question myself “What the hell am i doing”. Friends I have grown up with have already gotten married or have had children. And I’m just sitting here blogging day in and day out. Trying to chase something, but not even sure of what exactly it is that I’m chasing.

That’s when doubt and insecurity kicks in, I’m human just as much as anyone else so of course these emotions will occur from time to time. There are nights where I would sit here frustrated with how things are going and just want to quit with everything. It all seems pointless, it all seems meaning less. I've never been good with words so explaining my ambition to others just seems like pure foolishness and not reality. They don't seem to understand that I feel I can shape and build my own reality. Not luck, not fluke, not faith but I.
 I than get a email, tweet, a text, or have a normal conversation with someone who feels my work has somewhat moved them in a way. To help them push and pursue whatever it is they want in life. And that is what really puts everything in perspective for me. It's what makes everything worth while the sleepless nights, hours of editing, the interviews. At the end of it all just to have my work effect someone in such a way to give them that extra push is all that matters.

To be honest, i dont even know what im chasing. But this is the best run of my life.

Show & Tell

Some things are just so gorgeous that you really just got to share sometimes. Just the other day I was heading out to work on a shoot with a few friends of mine. Unfortunately, they had ended up running late, so as I was waiting for them I decided to talk a little stroll in the mall. Not looking to buy anything just to really past time.

School has started and I at the moment am just like every other college student who lives alone, just really trying to survive on a tight budget. And with just my "luck" I came across this Polo, why does Ralph always do these things to be? Driving my pocket deeper and deeper into depression. With my obsession with patterns especially floral I just couldn't manage to turn to look away. *Sigh* such is life.
