Weekend Recap

Things have honestly been so crazy lately, I don't know if I mentioned it, but Im moving. It's kind of the most awkward thing ever! Trying to condense 11 years of house items. Im somewhat being forced to dispose of my 1000's of magazines. So I've been trying to cut out some inspirational photos, or just photos I like and make a little book out of them. I've got about 30 down andd soo many more to go! Oh well its kinda fun looking at the styles from 2002!
Going through my closet also made me realize just how much stuff I have yet to wear! I know I buy too much, its a bad habit.

Through all the packing, homework and work this weekend I did manage to get a shopping trip in downtown. I checked out the newest Winners, which btw, had the grey ankle zipper boots in black! Amazingly awesome, yet I decided against them, for a reason Im not really all that sure about. I also ended up getting some new black tights, a new jacket, grey dress/top and a dark grey skirt from american apparel, the one with the pockets =) Piks to come if I can ever get the boxes away from my mirror.

I could be a little m.i.a throughout this week though, I have lots happening with school =(

In happier news and since this post was pretty long, I saw both these boots on intermix's website, and thought they were both oppositely awesome! I apoligize for my recent over-shoe posts, Im kind of completely obsessed with all shoes at the moment.

Alejandro Ingelmo, $770 6 inch booties
Stella McCartney, $1,995 Kate Lanphear rockin' the Stella's, although I believe there is a shorter version that she may or may not be wearing.

"Loves It"

Anyone else been enjoying fall? Today looked so gorgeous all the colorful trees and crisp leaves, I just cannot help going out of my way to crunch and crispy looking leaf just to hear the sound. Yeah I must look like a loser walking down the sidewalk, I know. I took a picture while walking home, but It turned out really ugly because I didnt want the passing cars to think I was totally crazy taking pictures of leaves, so I will get a better one haha.

Anyways I discovered this recent picture of Nicole Richie, looking like her usual awesome self. I love the whole outfit, but most of all the cardigan! I absolutely love, and want it. Im kind of a cardigan obsessed person, Im basically always wearing one. Only problem I dont know which brand it is? If anyone could help identify it or suggest a similar one, you would be pretty awesome =)

Also loving the hobo-esque hat and sunnys!

alice + olivia for Payless

Anyone seen these? They're pretty awesome, verging on ugly boots, my favorite kind it seems lately. I dont know if I would have the guts to wear these, mostly because they're patent, which Im not sure I could pull off, but I still think they could look pretty cool.

They also came in patent red.

Hmm so what do you guys think?

Under the Sea

Today was such a gross day, rainy, cold and dark all day. It also sucked, I had to write a midterm and goto the dentist for my very first filling of a cavity, which also Sucks, btw, with a capital S, it was definitely the most awful dentist trip ever! I will be doing everything to make sure this type of horror doesn't happen again, its so gross and sensitive feeling right now =( When does it go awayy? Sorry Im kind of the biggest baby ever when it comes to this sort of thing. Im also still mourning over the black leather bag from a few posts ago, I've been checking other Winners weekly, but still no luck, ugh I want it!

I saw this ring while looking through People Style Watch, seriously how cute is it? Lately I've been drawn to animal rings, after seeing Sea of Shoes octopus ring!

Sigerson Morrison

Today was such a nice fall day, cold, but sunny. I really must take a photo of all the trees because they are such lovely colors right now. Im also quite shocked that it hasn't rained much so far, which is very rare for us especially this time of year. *knock on wood*. Its been pretty cold though, highs of like 10/11c so I've definitely been whipping out the layers, hats and scarves. I really need a middle season type jacket though, because my cardigans aren't quite enough, and Im not quite ready to whip out the big parka.

Anyways Im sure by now you've all heard about Sigerson Morrison for Target, I was really surprised at how cute the stuff was. Lots of sparkly-ness, they really look like "holiday" shoes to me, which makes me even more excited for christmas. I think my favorite shoes though have to be the bottom ankle boots, I hope that it all looks as good in real life.

Hmm electric blue or black?

So even though Thanksgiving is technically tommorow, in Canada anyway, we celebrated today, by stuffing ourselves with loads of food. My personal favorite, pumpkin pie with a lot of whipped cream, mmm tasty, also my aunt makes this jello and apples dish, which is basically like a dessert during dinner =D. How did your Thanksgiving go, if you had it already that is?

Anyways to celebrate the weekend I bought myself the latest people style watch magazine, and noticed a Jessica Simpson shoe ad. I was pretty surprised at how much I really liked these shoes. Plus the heels look like they could come in handy sometimes ;)

A Work Free Friday

So I went on a mini mini shopping trip today, honestly like one store and a couple browsings. I was hoping Aritzia would have some of the cute new Wilfred stuff in, they had a couple of items, but some of the main pieces I liked, I couldnt find. I then discovered only the "big" locations recieved all the items, so basically the one store downtown. Seriously how annoying, they can ship stuff in, but you have to pre-pay, come back 4 days later to pick it up, and just hope the size is right, wayy to much hassle for me. Im really getting sick of only the farthest away stores having what I want. Anyway enough pouting, I did get to see a couple of the items, they bring in like 1 of each item just so you can see what they look like. Still, I hope I can get downtown soon.

I also discovered these phots of MK and A, its at an event something to do with Elizabeth and James? Anyways they look so killer here do they not? But honestly when do they look bad..
Haha they're so tiny I love it

Mouse Vs. Rat

Apparently Marc Jacobs has decided to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the famous mouse flat by teaming up with KAWS to create a limited edition of only 200 "rat" flats.
Soo the question is, which do we like better?
The Mice

The rat

Dun dun dunnn..

Wonderful World of Tights

I dont know about you guys, but I love tights and leggings, mostly for the fact that they are impossibly comfortable and you can basically wear them with everything. Not to mention make basically any summer clothing wearable in the winter, whats not to love? I saw a spread in a magazine a few months ago that really caught my eye. Lots of floral and patterned tights. So my goal for this fall is basically to pick up a few different types of tights rather than my typical black, grey etc. This is the best I could find on the internet.. it was much harder to find patterned tights than I thought it would be.
photos found from various sites discovered from google ;)

The Weekend

Finally the weekend, although it's not an exciting one, considering I work. I am also insanely tired from a week of studying for midterms, one of which I feel did not go well =(
I've also decided I pretty much love the black bag from a few posts ago, I've tryed about 4 other Winners though and cannot find it anywhere! Hopefully one of the next couple I hit will have it, it has definitely been one of those things you wish you had bought on the spot and deeply regreted it later. I still cant decide on the boots, I just really wish they were black!

I've also been enjoying so many of the fashion shows, as Im sure you all have. I really loved the crazy accessories at Karl Lagerfelds show. Almost lace like? I really dont know what to call them, but I want them =)
Had to include the dress, its gorgeous!

Now we can all look as cool as Karl, seriously can someone just steal this and then mail it to me? ;)
