Gallop likes it Gallops like yep. love it love it love it love it love it ♪ intro Hello my killer bees Today we are finally doing probably I’m gonna say my most requested video of all time, in the history of the almost 4 years of this channel And I’ve been putting it off and putting it off Mainly because it’s very hard to film in stores usually don’t like it you have to be like sneaky sneaky But I wanna really show you how as a blind girl I shop and pick out my outfits I’ve asked my friends and Boa Boutique which is in my hometown, I’ve been shopping here for years If they would be willing to let me film You can’t have like music playing which is always a problem in a lot of stores And they said like, no music I can come in and shop I can film it, they’re totally cool with it So shout out to Boa I’ll have all of their links below, their social media their website, they have some great stuff They have locations downtown Oakville my hometown, and in Toronto So check them out I’ve got my caffeine in hand I’m ready for this girl Let’s go Alright we’re in, coffee is down I need all hands available To be able to start like feeling my way around the store Which is basically how I do it Gallop really just does this the whole time I shop If he thinks I’m getting to far from him he’ll like get up and walk back over and lay down beside me again Gallop loves shopping actually Gypsy, my first guide dog It was like the one thing in which we differed She was not a shopper Gallop on the other hand When he walks into a mall his tail starts going like he gets so happy And I think it’s cuz he gets a combination of like working and napping When I’m trying stuff on he gets to nap And then in between he gets to work it’s his favourite combo So it’s kinda like fall transitional period I’m filming this in like early-mid August Fall is my favourite season for fashion Chunky knits, plaids, layering lots of texture, love it My mom was telling me right here is a shirt that I actually already own And it says ‘bee loved’ with a bee on it and you guys know how I feel about bees so Basically when I walk around a store I’m just feeling up everything I am going ham on the mannequins Feelin’ them all up And I’m really looking for texture shape and quality Those are like the 3 things I look for I obviously can’t tell what pattern what colour, any of that stuff So what I do is my mom and I kind of tend to divide and conquer We separate, once we get to a store She’ll go and finds stuff she knows I’ll like And then I kind of feel my way around I’ll pick stuff that I think fell like something I would wear And then I’ll ask her like for colour and pattern And if she says it doesn’t look like a colour I would wear I ask her to then like see if there’s any other in that area That are ones that are the same shape same style but in a fabric or colour I would wear This actually feels really cute I like the like very trendy kind of criss cross lace up vibe And it’s like a nice soft hoodie And then of course I often shop at a lot of boutiques I’ll list here a bunch of stores that are not boutiques that I commonly shop at both on and offline I do a lot of online shopping Cuz I can like read the description But when I’m in store shopping I do a lot of boutique shopping cuz I like to get unique unusual pieces that you’re not gonna see everywhere I kinda have a bit of an out there style And also when I shop in boutiques The staff tend to kinda get to know me They see me in a lot And they get to know my own style and they know that I can’t see So they’ll kinda start to pick pieces for me as well So kinda then ends up becoming like my mom, the shop associates, myself we’re like all team shopping for me So these are the two women who own Boa And they’re sisters in case you Oh my gosh haha Gallop Are you twins? We are twins They’re twins I don’t know these things cuz I can’t see them But apparently my mom can never tell the difference So Daphne Daphne And Ofra So you two usually know what’s gonna suit me You guys know your product better then I do So if you guys wanna start like M: picking around while I shop as well
D: Sure Just kinda pull some pieces you guys know I love my metallics I love flowy things, soft and stretchy All that jazz Okay we’re on it ♪ Top of kinda going through and looking at the shape of the garment Id say the first thing I always notice is the fabric So if somethings super soft that’s like immediately where I stop and pull something out Or if somethings a chunky knit or has a fun texture I immediately stop and pull it out Of course also if it’s metallic or glittery cuz you guys know I can see metallics and glitters I stop The second thing I’m looking for once I find that nice fabric or material that I think I like Is gonna be the shape of it Is it a style I like, do I think it’s gonna suit my own curves, my own body Of course sizing, colour, pattern, all of that comes last with a pair of sighted human eyes Already I can tell I like this It’s kinda like a lineney material Has nice buttons, has a tie waist, pockets Mom: Let’s show them it’s so nice Yeah this is really cute, what colour is it mom? Mom: It is a beautiful cream so it kinda goes with everything ♪ do do do yeah Mom: You can tell we like clothes shopping This with like some cute brown booties and a denim jacket *tongue click* gurl outfit done That’s why I love one pieces Actually the outfit I’m wearing right now is from Boa But I love these like once pieces because your outfits done Some joggers for the fall With some zip detailing, pockets are always good Yeah these are really cute Mom: They’re cami, like a cami pattern She calls it cami, it’s camo!

Mom: I love it, it’s very cute I always need moms approval Mom: Gallop’s woken up and he’s getting interested to see what Molly’s gonna come out with next This is an example of something I would have probably never pick, I like the shape But I would never pick up mustard yellow D: Yeah But everyones O: And we think it totally works it’s a great colour for her Fantastic colour on her You like it mom?

Mom: Yeah Intresting This is a winner Love this jumpsuit So flowy, so cute I feel like you could dress this up or down This is my style, a once piece so I don’t have to make an outfit And it’s like fitted and flowy Suits my quote ‘slim thicc’ body As many of you have told me I have So this is like a prime example of me understanding my body and what I like to extenuate and what I don’t So I put these pants on and everybody liked them at first But then I said I feel like these pockets here Cuz I can feel that there’s like chunky pockets are adding bulk to my thighs which is the thickest part of my body and it’s what I like to distract from by wearing flowy pants and I can wear skinny jeans and leggings When it’s like a slimming fit But just because this has this bulk here I don’t think it’s right for my body And once I said that everybody was like Oh yeah You can see it once it’s pointed out And so that kinda me just using my own understanding of my body and then feeling how it fits on my body So here are all the yeses We had good success but of course I’m not greedy, I don’t need all of these clothes So now I’m gonna kinda go through all the ones that either I really liked, or the audience really liked in the room and kinda pick Which ones I think are gonna be the most wearable with the other pieces in my wardrobe Which I think could be like cool for an Instagram or an event, that kind of thing And see what we end up with I don’t think you guys saw me try on this jacket But it’s very similar to this jacket right here I’ve worn that jacket to death So I think it’s time to upgrade to another one Everybody was obsessed with this and if you’re wondering how I know when I pick them up which is which They all have very distinct textures So even just by grabbing them I know what they are These I’m obsessed with, this black off the shoulder top I;m gonna be wearing it everyday and these pants like So Molly, they’re flowy, they’re metallic that’s justa big yes So we had all the choices made we where checking out, leaving the store And my mom found this gem of a jumpsuit This is like the most Molly thing I am in love, obsessed, done Even Gallop likes it Gallop: Yep love it, love it, love it Alright you guys I’ve got 2 big bags here getting my arm workout in today I think I am set for my transitional fall wardrobe I’m so excited Huge shout out to the girls at Boa Like always I’ll like their stuff below Thanks guys byeeee Daphne & Ofra: Byeeee
