I currently use an old Burberry Haymarket key holder as a wallet, and it's got to the point where it only holds half my cards and still won't close, so I'm in the market for a new wallet. I've been looking at these 8 x 6 leather wallets by Comme Des Garçon avaliable on Dover Street Market's online shop, and at 77 Euros/$106 Canadian they seem like a pretty good deal. Red or white?
This is officially my favorite new nail polish. I don't wear laquer as much as I used to, mostly because maintaining my nails is a pain, but a few weeks ago while picking up groceries at Superstore I went into the cosmetics department and the nail polish line from Joe caught my eye. at only $4 a bottle or 3 for $10, this color called 'Caramel' was a steal. It doesn't chip easily and stays on for multiple days. Joe released 3 new spring color collections drawn from plants, animals, and other natural things with names such as 'Mallard', 'Eggplant', and 'Lagoon'.
I ended up buying the sandals by Cooperative, they're comfortable, and cute, but now I must decide whether or not it's okay to wear socks with sandals. I used to think it was a huge no-no, but after looking at blogs, magazines, the runway, and the streets I'm beginning to think it may be okay!
These are some examples of socks & sandals in the streets (Style Sightings) (Grazia Fashion)
This is part of my bag family! I'm always keeping my eye out for different types of bags, and every so often I find a great deal (or not). #1 is a leather envelope clutch I picked up from True Value Vintage on Robson street. #2 is a Burberry Haymarket keyholder that I use as a wallet that I got for $10 at Used House Of Vintage on Granville street. #3 is a brown leather clutch by Cecconi Piero that I got from my mother. #4 is my Marc by Marc Jacobs workwear bag bought from Aritzia. #5 is a vintage Gucci bag I got from Value Village for $2.99!! #6 is a ridiculous but amazing faux fur clutch also from Value Village. #7 is a brown leather satchel that I also got from my mother. #8 is a round little bag by Cooperative that I picked up at Urban Outfitter. #9 is a breifcase from Value Village that I still haven't used. Finally #10 is my newest addition to my bag family, a Coach backpack that I got from Etsy.com.
With summer approaching fast, one must put away the rain-boots and umbrellas and turn to sun-hats and sandals! I won't lie, I haven't worn sandals in a really long time, let alone platform sandals. These platforms from Cooperative Janis go for $60, are light weight, simple, and cute. So the questions is, to buy or not to buy?
WILDFOX COUTURE- 09/11/2010
I've never been a huge fan of graphic t's other than a few prints by 'Blood Is The New Black', but today in my advertising & marketing class I was introduced to Wildfox Coutureand I won't lie, they're pretty cute, too bad they're overpriced.
