These are a few of my … favorite things!

outfit-sept-24Outfit of the day — September 24, 2009

Top: Dynamite ($30.90)
Sweater: JCrew ($$$!)
Necklace: Forever 21 ($4.80)
Navy striped pants: Jacob (Price unknown, bought it in the summer)

I think I pulled this together pretty nicely. It makes me laugh a bit because I was sized up by both males and females wearing this today. I sported it with my yellow leather Nine West purse and brown penny loafer type leather Nine West flats.

After work (on September 23) I needed to go to the grocery store. Since it’s in a little strip mall, I decided to head into one of the shoe stores and look for a pair of black flats. Didn’t get any flats, but I certainly got some crazy deals on wallets + coin purses!! The smaller coin purse was originally $25 and I got it for $7.50, then the wallet type thing was originally $48 marked down to $12.00 OMFG. Photos below.


I didn’t stop there either. The other night I went shopping and got some cute tops for work.

Right: Costa Blanca $22.50

Both of these tops are see-through and would need a black cami underneath.

I think I need a few more pairs of pants for the fall/winter, and maybe some black flats. I had a pair from Reitmans that were just $24 and just exactly what I paid for. Cheap. I wore them a handful of times and got caught in a rainstorm and ended up walking in calf deep puddles. So, they’re ruined. On the hunt I go!

Visual wishlist





can’t forget the intimates – over at gilly hicks either.


Of course everything I picked out (minus the two Forever21 items at the bottom) doesn’t have a store in Canada and I’ll be bombarded with duties and shipping fees. I should really be looking at dresses, instead. I have a wedding to go to next month and I have absolutely nothing to wear.  I’m not just saying that. Besides my black Christmas dress which has been worn a tad too many times. Website clothing suggestions anyone? Or any other store in a mall. I was thinking RW&Co or Jacob. But Jacob sucks lately.

I’m seriously thinking of purchasing the JCrew sweater once it drops in price a bit, otherwise I’m going to have to spend my money on an appetite suppressant to try and save money instead of buying lunches at work! Kidding!
