Sorry I ‘ve been MIA for the past week, but it’s all been for a good cause! I’ve been up to my eyeballs in work, from my regular day job to a few personal projects I’ve been working to get off the ground. And of course, I’ve found the time to do a little shopping a score a few new pieces to share with all of you.
I got tickets to visit La Braderie de mode québécoise the day before the official opening last week (thanks Pat!). Now I’ve mentioned before how I don’t really connect with Quebec designers; I just can’t really relate to the style. However, like a true shopaholic, I did still manage to score a few cute pieces.
I’ve wanted a horseshoe necklace since I spotted Carrie Bradshaw sporting hers. So when I came across this one I thought it was just too perfect. Simple, elegant and adorned with Swarovski crystals. The twist? The pendant hangs at the back – so sexy with a backless dress and beautiful updo.
I feel off the wagon and indulged in my substance addiction – shoes! I actually wasn’t looking for shoes (ha! Biggest excuse in the book!), but when I came across these, they were too perfect not to take home with me!
I adore these! I had originally stopped by H&M to exchange a top, but when I came across these I couldn’t resist!
I also took the chance to stock up on my favourite scent – Chloé. I have kept my signature scent a secret for so long worried that everyone on the planet would start wearing it (seriously, remember that CK One phase, EVERYONE wore it!). But then I realized how stupid that was, so here it is! It smells so light and fresh, I love it!
And finally, to feed my literary side, The Book of Awesome. The simple pleasures in life that make us so happy! I came across this book while browsing book sites and the reviews were so convincing! Readers talking about how much they laughed out loud while reading it, and how doesn’t want to laugh more! It is the best medicine.
