I was slowing down with posts in the last few days, as it has been quiet on the blog, and I am still strying to get used to the time change. I am taking advantage of this vacation food wise, as staying with mom means having good food on the table most of the time, not mentioning eating out. I am spoiled 🙂
Shopping wise though, I haven’t been inspired, mostly due to the fact that stuff isn’t as cheap as I imagined anymore. Also, the night market where I got most of my stuff last trip home was moved far away, so I don’t get to go anymore. It sucks.
The only thing I bought so far was this pair of pumps I needed for the wedding party. I wore a black strapless dress, so I guess the shoes would fit. They cost me less than CAD10, quite comfortable to wear, but the heels were a bit higher than I wanted 🙂
I guess I could include some items I hauled in Halifax during one of the sale days at the mall before I left for vacation.
They are very comfortable to wear, lovely flower patter on the soles. As I mentioned before, purple kinda grew on me, as I have been wanting to get more purple items than ever before.
Now I just need to pair them up with a fun outfit, and I’m good with this weather.
The first and last pairs had denim-wash-like prints on them, which I thought very cool. The black pair was lace, and the bronze pair has metallic look.
I have been wanting to get more leggings, and it was hard to stop at 4 pairs, I have to admit 🙂
Nothing really fancy about it, but I like the folding handle and the plies on the front. It’s also very light weight, which is a plus, as I normally have to carry quite a bit of stuff in my bag.
This is a good alternative to the current black bag that I carry.
This pair didn’t fit in the trendy category, as it didn’t have any studs or fancy zippers, just a regular/ normal style you can see everywhere. I like the strong frame of the bottoms, it makes the boots look very sturdy.
And black is more wearable, so I figure I could get some good use out of these.
Couldn’t leave the store without some accessories, so I got a 2-strand necklace and hoop style earrings for CAD5. Didn’t beat the 10 for $10 pricing at Claire’s but Suzy Shier sometimes do have some fun looking jewelries to “diversify” my little stash.
I actually brought with me home a few similar items and surprised mom. You might have heard that people prefer gold/ silver/ white gold jewelry over here in Asia, but I didn’t want to bother with high value stuff when I travel. I was more for a casual fun look this time.
Hope everyone had a good Monday. Don’t forget to enter my Marcelle Classic Elegant giveaway which is going to be closed this Friday. And then, we can move on to the giveaway that I promised in my Balmshell review post.
