Hope you guys are having a good weekend, Im going to be busy lapping up as much sun as possible tommorow, our streak of warm weather is too good to be true. Also dont forget to enter the contest below!

Current/Elliot Jeans Giveaway!!!

Soo remember when I mentioned that an opportunity of win something might be coming up? Well that time is here..

The awesome people over at have kindly offered to host an amazzing contest, and one lucky winner will win a pair of Current/Elliot boyfriend jeans!! If you haven't heard of these yet, you should definitely check them out. They have been seen on pretty much every celebrity out there, and with good reason, these are pretty much the softest and comfiest jeans around. Chickdowntown also has many other great brands that we all love, like Elizabeth and James, Black Halo, Sam Edelman and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
To enter just leave me a comment saying anything, stuff you'd like to see on my blog, or just to say hello! Also leave me your email so that the winner can be contacted.

The winner will be drawn randomly on Friday June 12th! Last chance to enter is 12am PST on June the 11th.

(Unfortunately this contest can only be entered by people living in the US, as chickdowntown is only able to ship within the country, I still love you though my fellow international-ites!!)

Hello Monday =(

So looks like the Disco Wedges were the winners of that round!

I hope you guys had a good weekend, we had fabulous weather, I think I might have actually gotten a bit of colour on my pale skin =) I went to the beach on Friday night, super nice and warm, busy with people and cute little puppies (I need one). I then got to see the new, nearly billion dollar convention center, I have to admit it is quite nice. And for dinner I decided it was about time I gave sushi a fair try, only veggie of course, have I ever mentioned I've been vegetarian for about 6 months now? Well, you can definitely add me to the list of sushi fans!
I also saw a skunk in the middle of the city, so random, but we definitely stayed clear of him.

In other news, I have apparently been living under some massive rock, or something because I completely missed the memo on Alexander Wang designing some pieces for Gap? Umm awesome..! not only do I love AW but the Gap has definitely been growing on me the past couple of seasons. Vena Cava is also scheduled for some pieces. These were the previews I found online:

Sooo.. not exactly the magic I had dreamed up in my head, but Im not going to cancel them out until I see them in person!

Showdown Of The Killer Shoes..

Dun Dun Dunnnn....

I was cruising for some cool Fall 09 shoes, and I found this blog and they had a really cool selection of shoe photo's for fall 09. So I thought we'd have a little shoe-showdown game. For the next couple of weeks I'll have a couple of pairs of shoes and you have to chose the winner, then at the end the winners will compete dun dun dunn. It would be cool if we could win some of these awesome expensive shoes, but unfortunately Im not made of money so we can all just lust over them =)

Butt there just might be a cool chance to win something coming up.. hmm..

ROUND 1: *ting ting*

Nina Ricci pink booties VS Bruno Frisoni disco wedges

Going Green

Today was such a lovely day, so warm, summer finally feels like it could be arriving. Put's me in a very good mood to wake up to a warm day and blue skies. I love being able to go for walks too at like 10 at night and it still warm and has that nice summer smell. The summer months are just too short here. Anddd I actually got to wear a dress today... without tights!!

I saw this photo of Lily Allen the other day on TV's website, and fell in love with the jacket. I guess it goes with my recent love for bright colored blazers, I suppose I can just change that theory to a new love for bright coloured jackets. Perfect for summer!

Shopping Trip..

So I went shopping a couple of days ago at a mall which is insanely big, I get exhausted after covering not even a third of it. So I only went into a few stores, but I ended up buying a new Wilfred Cardi and a dress by "ines" I haven't ever really heard much from that brand, but there stuff seemed pretty cute. Also went into Club Monaco, I've never payed much attention to it, but I was rather surprised, although nothing was mind blowingly different, they had nice "smooth" looking pieces accompanied by a nice neutral colour palette. Im not really sure what I mean by smooth, I know your probably thinking, "what the hell does she mean smooth? like the textures?" I dont know, but that was just my random thought when I saw them. Or maybe because it's kind of late and Im tired, who knows. Then off to Zara, where I am totally loving bright colored blazers, the red was my fave, a bright royal blue coming in second. They also had a nice assortment of sandals, a lot heavy on the jewels, but I wasn't willing to spend $80 on a sandal.
However I think this will be my alternative to the flip flop, basically the same flip-flop comfort, just a little more interesting.
Also saw a scary dolled up lady that actually startled me when I looked at her, 60+ year old ladies looking like wannabe barbies = not cool.

It's In the Acc's

My obsession for accessories only continues to grow, the more wild, out of the norm and lethal looking, the prefered. I think rings are one of my favorite, but I can definitely not rule out bracelets and necklaces. I have pretty much satisfied my need for a longer ring, but the Elizabeth & James knuckle ring will forever taunt me, especially since it is in fact still for sale on Bloomingdales website for you lucky Americans (Unfortunately bloomy's doesnt ship to Canada.)
It seems like a lot of the interesting stuff you see online comes with heavy price tags, so if any of you know of some good website's let me know. Anyways this is my latest online lust ever since I saw Rumi of fashiontoast post about this jewellery site, Made her Think: I wish I wasn't so disabled with DIY's cause I have such great ideas in my mind, if only I could figure some way to translate them into reality!

Also, happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!!! And the Canucks better win on Monday! I only just started watching hockey, but it's incredibly stressful to watch.

Happy May!

Just wanted to give a little update before I skip off to sleep, hope you all had a good weekend, mine was fairly tame, work, and movies, went to see Earth. It was cute, and sad =( I also bought some "nude" nailpolish which I was quite happy with compared to my usual brights. I then stressfully watched saturday's hockey game, and a friend finally explained some of the rules to me =)
Sadly, it looks like the whole "April showers bring May flowers" thing got mixed up, more like April showers bring May more showers..
