I’m falling behind!

ootd-1I’m trying to keep my “fashion posts” updated as I now have an excuse to wear a different pair of shoes and get out of my boring clothing rut and dress in something different every single week lol. There ya have it. I chopped my legs off in this one because I was at home and my full length mirror is on top of a plastic drawer thing (need to pick up some cardboard boxes soon, as I’m moving out of this place in 4 weeks!). Plus, ooh la la my purse got in the photo this time. Ow ow sista.

So. Let’s see where all this junk is from, k?

Top: Banana Republic. I love shopping in BR when they have sales because I’m an XS and apparently they always have a TON of leftovers in XS as they apparently never sell out of it, and it goes on sale quickly. As I was told by a saleswoman. It’s super comfortable and hasn’t pilled up and is super quality. I think this was purchased in 2008? I don’t remember. Fail.
Pants: A recent purchase from the GAP at about $29.00 on sale. Score.
Shoes: Nine West from Sherway Garden’s mall in Toronto. They scuffed the first few days, and I tried to bring them back and complain, but they weren’t accepting that and now I’m stuck with them. At least they’re incredibly comfortable.
Purse: Nine West from a discount store and ended up getting this for $34! I bought this while I was home during Christmas 2008/2009(?)

Some close ups of the shoes and pinstriped pants. I should have bought a smaller size in these pants because I always seem to be hiking them up! Too late now! I also hiked up my pants for snapping the photo of my shoes. Trust me, these pants are long enough lol. Isn’t the fabric (pattern?) stripe? lovely? That’s way too many question marks in one blog entry for me. Especially in one paragraph.

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 ā€” I WILL NOT!

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

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 ā€” phewf is all I can say to that. I thanked him, and left.

How was your weekend everyone!???
