Shining Crystals

This crystal-print blouse was one of my ebay finds & I cannot tell you how many times I've worn it, but never featured it on the blogI'm clearly not dressed warm enough & it's time to bundle back up, as the snow is starting to fall...

Inspiration: Elaborate Nails

I've always loved the idea of intricate designs painted on my fingers and/or toes.  So much so that I even had a how-to book when I was younger for basic designs.  I know they make it even easier these days, what with nail art pens, but let's be honest- after a long day at work, who has the time/energy to spend hours doodling on your nails? Ok so maybe this isn't for me, but I sure do appreciate all the effort these ladies exerted to achieve the below designs...

Bundled in Bright Colors

I should start by apologizing for all the crazy. bright color combinations as of late.  I'm well aware shades this bright are reserved for warmer times of the year, but I've never been one to follow the rules of fashion...

Rainbow Marl

There's nothing better than wrapping yourself up in a giant wool cardigan on a cold winter's day, especially a rainbow-marled version.  I work in a fairly laid-back environment, so I try to avoid over-dressing as much as possible...

Wait, Where's the Heel?

Trying something new called expanding my collection of heel-less shoes.  After almost wiping out on ice in my most practical pair of heels, I knew it was time.  Just don't mention it to my ample collection of heels that I've embarked on a torrid love affair with these flats...

Winter Tropics

It's been so sunny during the afternoons that I too easily forget how cold it is outside.  More touches of pink, this time in the form of my new quilted tropical bomber jacket.  I cannot wait for an opportunity to wear this with shorts & a tank, instead of jeans & a turtleneck...

Neon Pink Accents

Hello, Monday...we meet again.  I've been so lazy in the mornings lately, trying to stay under the covers in my warm bed for as long as possible.  I decided touches of neon pink would be just what I needed to start this week off, plus I was curious to see how this toque would look with a pair of statement earrings....

Happy Weekend! This weekend will be used as an attempt to establish a normal routine again (cleaning, running, etc.).  However, the dropping temperatures & wind chill are all the excuse I need to hibernate all weekend under a warm duvet (after all above tasks are completed of course).  A few new arrivals is all to report for this week ;)

New in from Aritzia
Did some damage last Friday afternoon...oops!

Beyond Repair

I somehow continually manage to surprise myself when cheaply-made clothing doesn't last as long as I think it should.  For instance, when one purchases (for arguments sake)  a pair of leopard-printed denim for $21.95 & is devastated when it doesn't last as long as its more expensive counterpart.  I fell head over heels for the J.Brand equivalent, but just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on leopard-printed denim (not to mention the grief  I would have gotten from the manpanion).  After 10 or so washes, these jeans have completely broken down & hardly hold form long enough for me to blow dry my hair in the morning!  Does this happen to anyone else out there???
