J.Crew adore

I really need this dress. In that exact color. I may need an augmentation to fill that out like the model does, unfortuch.

I haven’t shopped at J.Crew online before. That, and the fact our Canadian dollar isn’t that great right now. I know you sometimes make purchases at J.Crew, do you get whomped with duty fees? I really really love this dress. I wouldn’t know what size to pick out since I’ve never ever tried anything on at this store before. Fail :(

I showed my boyfriend this dress and he mentioned that I wore something similar to his engineering graduation back in 2005 (okay not really). However, the dress that I wore back then was borrowed from my best friend’s sister, and I actually loved it but for obvious reasons couldn’t keep it lol. A trip to the states in the near future is a must folks, a must.

I’m actually saving up for another year gym membership from blogging. When I get half way I’m going to meet that amount of money that is sitting in my PayPal and “match it” so to speak. I usually end up purchasing a gym membership once a year and only go for 5 months and then QUIT. This time — I WILL NOT!

I wrote it here, so I wouldn’t forget, and hopefully you all will hold me to it! :)

Monday work-wear

july20Ruffle blue top: Purchased in May ’09 from Ricki’s ($20)
Jean Blazer: Guess purchased in ’08 (on sale from $120 to $69)
Capris: Mexx
Sandals: Aeropostale ($5.99)

I had a chiropractor appointment today and for the last month or two I’ve diagnosed myself with carpal tunnel syndrome and seriously wanted to snap my wrist off from the weird ache. Finally I remembered to mention this to my chiro and he said a bone was out of alignment inside my wrist and all he did was tug on it a bit and voila, immediate relief. Apparently I know nothing about carpal tunnel and it actually starts tingling/numbing your fingers first. Which I had none of — phewf is all I can say to that. I thanked him, and left.

How was your weekend everyone!???

Aunt Nancy

ootd-july16I named this post Aunt Nancy mainly because it was my nephew’s 3rd birthday when I was wearing it.

Surprise surprise, my outfit is basically all from the store Dynamite. Jeesh! I had no idea I have so many things from this one store in my closet! Guess it’s my favorite g0–to place for work attire.

The top I’m wearing doesn’t get much wear out of it as my purple one does. I bought the purple ruffle top first and ended up absolutely in love with it (meaning wearing it maybe more than once a week!) so I bought the yellow, and white one! Gotta say, it’s pretty difficult to pair the white one with a pair of trousers or shorts because I’d end up looking like a waitress/server! So that barely gets any use. Hmpf.orange

Wow. I really need a hair cut. Colonix? Not so much needed. Fret not, I booked a hair appointment for July 31!~ Though it got me thinking, I want to go back to my orange/yellow/black/blonde hair days. See what I mean? It looked good, and I miss it!

Top: Dynamite [circa May 2009!]
Cardigan: Smart Set [bought a long time ago but rarely worn because I used to hate the color]
Capri’s: Dynamite maybe $35? [purchased two summers ago when I started working here]
Shoes: Brand name: Seychelle’s. Purchased in spring 2007 from Browns online store in Toronto, and have worn the heck out of them. I mean, look at the toes on them! What a disgrace :) I have yet to make another purchase from Browns. Guess it was a one time only thing. I really don’t like anything they have listed and even if I do like it, it’s like three hundred bucks for a pair of flip flops!

And now for some close ups! First, the capri/bermuda/shorts. Probably not the most flattering photo known to mankind, but what can you do. It was taken swiftly and with my blackberry. So there ya have it. Some minature triangle design with a black satin sash belt to boot. Lovely.

Shoes? I really shouldn’t be wearing these to work. They’re so worn out. They’re the most comfortable soft leather flats available. Decided I needed a backup second pair and ended up contacting the designer of Seychelle’s and asking if they had any in my size in Canada or the US. Unfotunately, I was a few months too late as they stopped making the shoe. Wah wah!
