The Mall and The Giant Reindeer

Today I decided to try to defeat the all mighty Eaton Centre a week before Christmas.  To my surprise it wasnt that bad. I picked up a few little gifts and was on my way out when I noticed the gigantic Christmas reindeer.  I was quite fascinated with them. I thought I would share a few pictures. image

Fridays+ Christmas Parties

Sooo its been a long week and I must admit I cant wait for Christmas holidays.  Today was our Staff Christmas party and I got to help the caterer set up which was a definite plus(made the day go by really fast). The party had amazing food but was short and sweet so me and my friend/co-worker Lily could still go out for a beer (or 2 pitchers) and be home by 10 :D.  All I can say is YAY to the end of another work week :D.imageHappy Christmas Portrait! LOL

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!

 

A Good Day For Chanel!

So today I woke up thinking it was Thursday and the weekend was within reach. I realized that I was mistaken as I was getting ready for work :(. Normally this would not bother me but today it kind of bummed me out. So on days like today I had to bring out my “HAPPY PANTS”. I know every woman has a pair and for me they are my Vintage Chanel nautical style pants. I absolutely love these pants. I found them this spring at the Maple Cottage Vintage sale. It was amazing. I noticed them as they were being returned after an unsuccessful fitting in the change room. I quickly asked if I could try them on and BAM!!!! Fit like a glove! And…..they were a very good price. I could not resist and now they are alllllll mine! These pants are also special because they were a collection for a store called CREEDS.

Creeds was the finest women’s specialty store in Canada specializing in furs, designer fashions and accessories, jewellery (Beni Sung), cosmetics (Borghese, Chanel, Clarins, Clinique, Estée Lauder, Lancôme), fragrances, and gifts (including fine chocolate, men’s ties, and Sable & Rosenfeld gourmet foods). The 38,000-square-foot (3,500 m2) store spanned two floors and featured boutiques for Yves Saint LaurentChanelChristian DiorEmanuel Ungaro, and Sonia Rykiel. The original location opened in 1916; the Manulife Centre location closed with the firm’s bankruptcy in 1990.  (source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manulife_Centre)

Worth every penny!

Hey All,

This weekend as I was attempting to do my Christmas shopping I came across these lovely jeans at Urban Outfitters. Normally I would have passed right by them, but on Saturday they came to me in sort of a “diamond in the ruff” sort of way. As I was searching for cool gift exchange gifts at Urban outfitters I noticed a large group of girls towards the back of the store. So I made my way over to see what the commotion was all about. Sure enough “SALE” rack. Women of all sizes pulling clothing off the racks and hangers without any regard for the clothing or the poor workers that have to hang all of that stuff back up. And there they were in the corner of my eye between two size 34 red skinny jeans a size 27 Dark denim pair of jeans. Not only were they out of place (as most of the sale stuff was) but they were still fully hanging on their hanger (if you were there you would understand what I mean).  Anyways I looked at the price $19.99. Originally $122.00. To me this seemed like a deal I couldn’t pass by as I am always in the market for dark denim jeans. I examined the jeans to see if there were any defects or damages….none. So I tried them on and the rest is history.  My new favorites at the moment. JeansWearing a Vintage Silk Embroidered top, Lida Baday Blazer, Vintage red belt, Les Folles de joie Jeans, Michael Kors suede wedge boots.

Pleasant Surprises

So im a little post happy today, but I came home to a lovely little surprise on my doorstep and wanted to share.
First off I love love love coming home to mail that isnt a flyer or a bill so this was a nice surprise.  Second the company I ordered these from told me my parcel was delayed so I wasnt expecting these today. Anyways my bridesmaid shoes arrived today. I have been waiting for these for over a month.  I guess it was worth the wait since I got an incredible deal on them.  Anyways I love them and now have wedding on the brain 😀 (it comes in waves).

Love of Mine

Hey all,
Today while waiting for the very very late streetcar I stumbled into one of my favorite little accessorie and knickknack stores called Love of Mine (check them out http://www.loveofmineboutique.com/). I love this store. They always have awesome costume rings and cute necklaces. Not to mention their little knickknacks for your home, like bar wear or ring holders. Anyways I took a couple shots of the store cause I love their Christmas display.  If you ever get a chance to go in definitely take it. Its worth it!imageA lovely Christmas tree surrounded by Gun book ends, Anchor corks & bottle openers,  juicers, and much more!

The Power of Tights!

Hey all,

You know when you purchase a new piece of clothing and you cant wait to wear it? Well today was one of those days. On the weekend I tried to go Christmas shopping, but ended up purchasing more for myself (way too many great Christmas sales). So today I decided to bust out my new leopard print fish nets that I purchased on the weekend. Today I planned a simple little outfit with my loud tights and left for work. 2 compliments before the streetcar (yay) What a great start to a Monday. Then I got to work where I don’t think they were as well received. I just narrowed it down to the hair plus leopard print was a little too much for a Monday 😀 . But I will say this. I felt HOT! 😉

Moral of the story is start your week with a BANG it will make your Monday go by a lot faster 😀
