Running Out Of Time

 
 
 
  Blog post up! Check! One less thing on my to do list. I am leaving on my trip in 3 days and I have not even picked out outfits yet or started packing. I don’t like to travel heavy, especially because I like to shop when I am away and I need room in my luggage for the return trip. But mostly because I just don’t like to carry too many things with me. I prefer to preplan what to wear, plan to use same pieces of clothing in more than one outfit. I much prefer to enjoy every second enjoying the city then spending time putting things together. This task was on my to do list to finish today, but it might have to wait till tomorrow. I am so disorganized this time that believe it or not, I only booked the hotel today! But I got the one I wanted J. Check, check!
 
This H&M dress, is the most comfortable dress for the summer for me. And only $15. I also have it in black and army green (here). I wear it to the beach, running around city, going out, and so on. I love the bright coralish red which would look absolutely amazing on many different complexions. The pictures don't do justice to the colour as I had to use flash to take these pictures since the sun was already down. I usually wear a cropped denim jacket with it to give me appearance of more curves, and I really love this one with leather (imitation) sleeves. I got this jacket and this great bag (lamb leather) at Winners. I know a lot of people get hives just thinking about going to Winners to look for clothes, but I find it fun. For those of you not from Canada wondering what Winners is, it is a store similar to Marshals in the US. I am not too familiar with similar type stores in Europe, but put simply it is a type of a store that carries many brand (and not so brand) and designer names, from clothing to house wear. I don’t look at everything hanging on the racks. I walk around and if something catches my eye I will look at it. Bags and shoes are much easier to browse through. And make sure that you go on a week day and not on a weekend; otherwise you just may lose your mind. I simply love not knowing what I will find when I walk in and I get absolutely exited finding a little treasure. A treasure such as my Versace $200 (originally $800) lace sandals maybe? Or L.A.M.B. sandals $50 (originally $350)! What is your favourite place to shop?

  1. Love the dress. Picked up a green one 2 weeks ago on clearance for $5! I like your version of pairing it with black tights. I would feel more comfortable.

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more. 
Ciao!

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
