This week went by really fast and was kinda boring. Not too much to talk about on the fashion/makeup front.
So here’s a round-up of my Instagram photos in case you missed them.
Apparently this week should’ve been called “42 Ways to Wear Your Denim Jacket”
Denim Jacket (bought at a yard sale last summer, no specific brand), DKNY Jeans top and purple graffiti jeggings and Joe Fresh silver ballet flats.
Denim Jacket with Banana Republic Sloan Dress in black and Clarks sandals (from last year). Belt from Zellers and necklace from Aldo.
Denim Jacket with Joe Fresh t-shirt with flower details, Gap Jeans in Peach and necklace from Lia Sophia. I am also wearing Birkenstocks but they got cut off in editing.
Okay, so maybe it’s not 42 ways but I sure wore it a lot this week. I think a nice denim jacket is a great neutral for spring and summer. If you don’t have one, I suggest you get one. And right now it’s easy as they are everywhere. If you aren’t a big fan of the cropped one (like I have above) grab one that hits you at the hip but definitely not any longer.
Some nail art:
Two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda and then using the painted gradient technique (by the lovely Chalkboard Nails) gradually paint three coats of Serum No 5 Laven-Daringly Bright (which glows in the dark) and top with two coats of Quo by Orly Pink Matte (sorry, I couldn’t find any link for this). Loved this mani and it wore well for two days.
Some very exciting news: Head over to Lipsticks and Lullabies right away because Rebekah is giving away the Urban Decay Electric Palette for reaching 300 Likes on Facebook. Following me on Instagram and Twitter are two of the ways to enter for the contest. Good luck!
Oh ya, and I signed up for Twitter. Follow me @tlcshoppingwpg.
Lastly, what do you think of the larger picture sizes? Too big? Great for seeing details? Leave me a comment and let me know. Happy Shopping!
Sorry I haven’t posted for 12 days. I had this post all set up and ready to go before my trip to Toronto last week and between packing and the long weekend, I just forgot to press go. And then I had good intentions of posting while I was in Toronto but that didn’t happen either.
So, I am back and had a great time, especially checking out all the new trends coming down the pipe for spring. I’ll be sure to post what I bought soon.
Today I wanted to talk about a huge trend that is starting to pop up everywhere: the pointed toe ballet flat. It’s so cute, I
think know I want several pairs.
This happy yellow pair is from Toms.
This faux croc Chinese Laundry pair is available at Rooster Shoes.
I love the Material Girl line at Hudson’s Bay. Here she does a cute geometric tribal print.
I am a total sucker for Sam and usually pick up a pair of his sandals every summer. Hopefully this gorgeous shoe will come in some colours.
Club Monaco just started doing shoes in the past couple of years and while I haven’t been in love with any yet, these white ones are definitely in the right direction for me.
I love this yellow pair from Vince Camuto, also available at Hudson’s Bay.
Which pair(s) do you like? Or is there a completely different pair that you have your eye on? Leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!
I’ve never been big on Valentine’s Day. Flowers are overpriced, chocolates give me hives and the restaurants all are crowded. If it were up to me, the custom would be to send your lover shoes or a great purse.
But since it’s not up to me, here are some sweet treats for you (and I) to drool over on this lovely Hallmark-made-up holiday. Feel free to send this list to your honey so they know what you really want. 😉
I am crazy over these silver ballet flats from Joe. They will be perfect for work, shopping and date nights walking down Corydon.
This darling cardigan lends itself to spring but will keep you toasty warm while the temperatures slowly climb to above zero. Available at Out of the Blue
This cute dress from Artizia also comes in a gorgeous red colour, perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Rejoice leather lovers, leather continues to be hot this season. But bargain hunters need not apply: this gorgeous white leather laser cutout dress from Club Monaco will set you back $995.
I picked up a bib necklace from Paramix last week and caught myself wanting more than one including this Peter Pan collar and floral choker. Check out her great selection on Facebook or Instagram.
What’s your favourite thing to do for Valentine’s Day? Leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!
