Smooth Sailing

  
 
I was at my sister’s the other day walking her new puppy, American bulldog named Sky, aka the cutest little thing, aka traffic stopper J. So I thought I would take few pictures of my outfit. It is again a more casual outfit comfortable for a pretty chilly spring day. For a moment I thought it was a fall and not a spring day.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jeans and sweatshirt H&M, boots, snake bracelet and purse Ebay, earrings old, ring (silver) Aldo, ring black/silver old, watch Swatch, leather jacket 10 years old Le Chateau, rabbit fur vest 7 years old
 
Now, one of my favourite things about this outfit is this purse. It is a look-alike Channel bag but it is not a knock off. Don’t waste money on cheap knock offs! They look exactly like that, knock off. Your better options are look-alike purses. All the stores now, from designer to the ones catering to a more regular folk are making these look-alike purses. One such example is Town Shoes with their Red Carpet collection. One that I really love now is a Celine bag that is definitely not in my budget and I have found a few similar ones that I really like. Channel was another one. I found this one on Ebay. It’s made of genuine leather.  I find better deals on these types of purchases on Ebay. When searching Ebay, make sure you type in genuine leather in your search. Also make sure you check several sellers for the best price (consider the shipping too). Ensure to check out measurements too!! Measure twice, buy once! Winners is an amazing place for great leather purses too. What are your thoughts on this? Where do you like to buy purses?

  1. I love this look. What about the jacket? Where do you recommend we look for similar styles?

    1. Leather is very in now so you can pretty much get it anywhere, all shapes, styles and textures. I would not be afraid to invest in a good quality leather jacket as you will wear it for years to come. As for the vest, if you ever travel to eastern Europe in the winter you can find great deals :) But a cheaper solution are thrift/vintage clothing stores. This way no new animals were hurt :) I bought several fur coats in great shape. You can make them into a vest. But I have seen vests as well. Good luck shopping!
