Oxford Love

For the past year, I've been in love with Oxford style shoes, but haven't had a pair. Why? Because, with feet that hover somewhere in between sizes 10 and 11, I could find a pair in my price range that fit. Finally, all that changed with an impulse, lunch hour trip to Winners, where I found this pair by Dollhouse. The quality is quite poor, they feel flimsy and I would be surprised to they make it to next July, but I've wanted a pair for so long and I just decided to go for it. What do you think?
Is it worth it to buy "disposal fashion" in a case like this or should I have held out for the possibility of a great quality pair that will last longer? (To be honest, if I find that pair, I will buy it too). Either way, here are my new shoes and a bonus picture of me in Oxford (just because it fits and I can.

Rachel Antonoff Spring 2011

It's probably too early to seriously think about spring fashion (especially because today felt delightfully like early fall), but it's never to early to pick your favourites. One of my favourite collections that I've seen so far is Rachel Antonoff's. It's also so pretty and retro and completely wearable. And I love that the models are smiling and doing things I want to do. Basically, I want my life to be like this collection. Happy, carefree and easygoing. I'm not sure where you can find the collection, but I want/need to horse t-shirt. So bad. (Photos from

Almost Ok with Winter

Check out this awesome H&M loves Lanvin video!

It was really warm today for November, but the chilly mornings and evening always remind me of the freezing weather to come. But fashion spread like this make me OK with the subzero temperatures. Well, almost (Photos from

My new baby

Hi everyone! Sorry for disappearing for a bit and happy Halloween tomorrow! Halloween is one of my favourite holidays, so I'm happy. Last night was a Halloween party where I was a angel and am now sporting a bruise where two drunk people danced me into the corner of a tv stand. A good time to be sure. (PS: Maria, I love your spice girl outfit). Tomorrow is with my parents, then the night spent watching scary movies with the bf.

And now to explain the title of the post. I finally broke down and bought an iPod touch. I didn't really need it since my old nano still works, but I've been wanting one for ages, so I decided to get one. Isn't it pretty?

Outfit post will resume shortly, since I'll be getting my tripod from my parent's tomorrow.

As promised, I'm posting up the first set of photos from my Europe trip. Since I took a lot of photos (over 1000), I've gone through and picked my favourites from each country. Here are my favourites from England (we visited London and Oxford). I'll eventually be posting all the photos on facebook and flikr and I'll post up the links to those after I do. Enjoy!

Also, I did a little shopping over the weekend, so I'll post about that coming up.

Grr! But a much bigger Yay!

Grr, because I somehow accidentally deleted my best outfit photo(s). But a much bigger, very exciting yay because last night I bought a new computer! My old on was getting very slow and I was having trouble running some programs (alright, I'll admit it, I'm a closet gamer). So tonight has been spent trying to set everything up. Making this the first post from my new computer! Yay! It was a bit on the pricey side, but hopefully spending more money now will mean I can go longer before I buy my next computer. And isn't the monitor huge! My first flatscreen! (And yes, our computer room is currently rocking the Mickey Mouse wallpaper)

Anyway, here's what I wore yesterday.

New Boots and Europe Teaser

Sorry for the delay in posting; I've been trying to get my life in order since getting back from my trip. Four weeks is a long time! But I think things have finally calmed down and are back to (mostly) normal.

Today was a bit stressful at work and I got pretty stressed over some minor personal stuff (don't worry, nothing major) and I ended up working almost an hour of overtime since there was a major techinical difficulty right before I was off work.

Also, yesterday was my birthday, so today was my first full day of being 22. I feel like I should have my life planned out by now, but somehow I still don't. Maybe this year I'll figure things out. The bf took me out for a fancy steak dinner which was very nice and on the weekend my parents bought me a new pair of jeans (they're for riding though, so don't expect to see them on the blog). Although, this year of my life started off quietly, but very happily.

I waited for my return to show you these boots I got back in July (crazy sales on boots in the middle of summer). Sometimes I worry that they look too much like Uggs (not a fan), but I love the pretty little cutouts (I don't think you'll be able to see them in the photos) and they boy working at Aldo told me they were cute.

Hope things are going well for everyone and I'll try to catch up on everyone's blog soon!

Oh, and a Europe teaser! This is me the morning we left. Lots more to come! And yes, I like to make faces!

Safe and Sound

I just wanted to let everyone know that I've gotten home safe and sound! My trip was excellent. I'll post up some travel pictures next week, but I'm at my parent's until Sunday and the bf has the camera back in the city.

So many spring collections to catch up on!

Emmys 2010 favourite looks

Truth be told, I wasn't super impressed with the dresses from this year's Emmys. I also realized that I don't watch much tv. If it wasn't for Glee, I wouldn't know any of this people, except maybe Lauren Graham from when I used to watch Gilmore Girls (ok, sometimes still do). Anyways, here are my favourite dresses and ladies: Emily Blunt, Jayma Mays, Lea Michele and Katrina Bowden. (Photos from

6 More Sleeps

So, 6 more sleeps until I leave for Europe. Sometimes I can't even comprehend the idea that I'll be going somewhere I've never been to go on adventures for almost a month. Anyway, here's what I wore yesterday when I went to visit my mom for the day (my dad was at a stag party for my cousin's fiance). We just hung out talking and eating tuna melts and playing Skip-Bo. Oh, and didn't the clouds look cool?

So it only makes sense that after the chilly summer we've had here, the weather finally decides to smarten up at the end of August, when my thoughts are itching to turn to fall. But, being the summer-lover that I am, I'm still enjoying the long-awaited warm weather. I wish I could outfits like these gorgeous Erin Fetherston Resort pieces. Stupid long pants requirement at work. And lack of spending money. On the bright side, 8 more sleeps until I leave for Europe! (Photos from
