Where do I find a pair of these tights?
(found on JAK & JILL)
Give me your opinion:
#1 – Caged Design Pointed Toe Bootie ($24.20) (Heel = 4.25″)
#2 – Pointed Tow Zipper Trim Bootie ($23.60) (Heel = ??”)
#3 – Shirred Leatherette Bootie ($27.30) (Heel = 3″)
#4 – Runched Pointed Tow Bootie ($23.60) (Heel = 4.25″)
#5 – Gathered Cuff Low Wedge Boot ($22.40) (Heel = 1.25″)
#6 – Gathered Side Ankle Bootie ($20.70) (Heel = 3.25″)
#7 – Slouchy Gathered Button Bootie ($18.90) (Heel = 0″)
So what do you think? I’m getting this feeling like I’m too late in the season to really buy a pair? Or maybe if I wait a few more weeks I can get a good deal? Is it worth the wait? Sigh, this “trend” thing is harder then I thought. By the time I make a decision and buy a pair it will be Spring!
Either way – leave me a comment with your pick. Your opinions will help me make up my own. Once I pick a style I’ll be able to take that and shop around.
So I’ve been online for the past two weeks – a lot. It seems as though I’ve been sucked into a time warp where I’ve aged my closet 6 months (as in… why is neon pink still present? White t-shirts? capris?) and spent far too long mastering this stupid facebook game. gah.
I’m been using google reader to keep track of the many, many blogs I’ve fallen in love with. Unfortunately, it makes it a lot easier to skim the blogs instead of really reading and enjoying. I have managed to find a few things over the past week that ‘I basically can’t live without.
WATCHES – and more than one of them.

What do you think? I don’t wear a watch… but I think I like the idea of wearing them as accessories? Around your neck? I don’t know. I’m a fashion victim. sigh.

“I´m a crafty fashionaddicted girl from Finland. I´ve studied clothes making and graduated in 2000. Nowadays I´m most into customizing clothes for myself. I started this blog to share all the DIY inspiration and recycle fashion ideas I find online and my own DIY fashion projects. Recycled materials + fashion = trashion.”
Check out her blog. Lately… I’ve been enamored with this idea:
What do you think? Could I pull it off? At the end of last season – I bought (literally) 6 sweaters from Old Navy with a crew neck in lovely colours that I could (probably) match. I don’t know. Not only am I a fashion victim (if only you could see today’s outfit) but I’m fashion challenged and also a fashion chicken.
I found this blog this weekend. I love it. I hate saying things like this (but whatever)… but I feel like her outfits would work well on my body type (i.e. not a size 2). Her blog is great… it seems like she buys a lot of her staple pieces at stores i have access to. Ok, i found two of them… here are the linky-poos and a sweet outfit from each..
Elements of Style: linky-poo

On an off topic… I’m going to the states again in about 4 weeks and need a game plan. I have a v. large budget (i.e. >$500) and want to update my wardrobe. Maybe in the next few weeks i can make a list and you guys can help me edit it. k cool.
Finally, item number 4:
I need a pair of booties. Help me.
Here are examples:
1. I hate spending more than $35 on, well, anything
2. They can’t be leather (and well, that makes sense for that price)
3. The heel can’t be taller than 2.5″…. I need to be able to wear them!
ok help! Thanks internet!
ANTM update (I’m two episodes behind, oops)
Project Runway… I think I’m 3 episodes behind on this one. I’m a blogging failure.
Pic from an e-mail I just received via Banana Republic’s mailing list:
J Brand? Marc Jacobs? 7 for all mankind?
This makes me wonder… the paperlime brand is under the same umbrella as Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic. All three of those stores have store fronts in Canada. I wonder if Paperlime will remain an online-only source for clothing? What if they don’t? Will there end up being a high fashion chain under the GAP umbrella? One can only hope. And also hope their sales are as fabulous.
Here are their picks for fall:
I agree with everything but the “boho”. No thank you.
Point number 1 – I love this magazine.
It has everything I want…
1. It’s Canadian.
This is good for two reasons… the prices are all relative to what I know (i.e. I can go to H&M and buy that skirt and it is actually $21 and not $21 plus exchange) and the stores are ones I can actually get to (or buy from online).
2. The magazine fills its pages with looks, trends, specials, photo shoots and minimal articles. I’m not one to read (or write, as is made very clear by my blog and its lack of text) so flipping through pages and pages of photos and captions makes sitting on the couch after a long day at work very fulfilling.
3. The price!
On the weekend I was determined to buy the September issue of Vogue before it went off the shelves. Do you know what the cover price was? $6.99! Adam says… “you paid a lot of money for a book full of advertisements”. He’s right. But I guess that doesn’t make me any less excited to look at them all.
This months issue was $2.49. In Saint John you can buy this magazine and a coffee for less than $5. What a perfect way to spend a break.
ok so now to dig deeper!
Here are some “articles” I fell in love with:
(maybe I read magazines with post it “tabs”. don’t judge)
This issue is their fall trend report. The trailer for “The September Issue” said that in the fashion world – September is like the January. Awesome!
Here are some trends for fall that fashion magazine is all about:
Let’s look back in time at my fall trends and see how I did… I lose!
Fashion magazine tells you 8 things you need for fall… here I summarized in point form: do you agree with their picks?
What else should be there? What should be removed?
ok, Saint John girls.
Candice and I started doing this awhile ago – but she only buys Chatelaine…
We need to organize a magazine swap. Comment and I’ll send some e-mails to figure it out.
up next: LOU LOU, ELLE, FLARE and VOGUE
Red is one of those colours that will always be in style. Luckily (this season) it’s in style and readily available!
Lips, tops, shoes, bags… you name it! Today at Je Suis Prest Boutique I saw red paired with purple and I fell IN LOVE.
(The new NOA NOA line is stunning and a must buy, btw)
I find that if I wear a basic t-shirt (and the colour isn’t right) I end up looking
(b) broad shouldered; and
(c) zitty (light pink, baby blue and white t-shirts bring out every zit I tried to cover up that morning).
These necklaces would do a great job drawing attention away from a “too tight crew neck” or “the red dot beside my mouth”. It would also cover the stains I have over the breast area of most of my shirts. Mom, why didn’t you teach me to eat slowly and with a fork? (just kidding… mostly).
I might order one of these tonight to wear with a basic.
Hey you can too:
$18.50 USD + $3.00 shipping (Etsy)
$28.00 + shipping (American Apparel)
I should have added in these… this is really what I was going for… not the jersey necklace.
Or you could make one:
Cool have fun! Report back!
I’m going to update this blog almost hourly. I spend so much of my time poring over magazines, reading blogs and looking at websites. I’ve been enamored with Chanel’s website this afternoon – checking out the fall/winter lines. The Cruise has a few classic pieces while the ready-to-wear is making me drool. I should rename my blog: “If I had $1,000,000”. Or “If I was a size 4”

I’m so glad B&W is sticking around in such a huge way.
