Hey everyone!  So last week there was a random pop-up shop of designer goods on consignment just up the street from where I work.  I stopped in on my lunch break and got two pairs of designer jeans (my weakness!) and an Aritzia dress for under $60 each!  The white dress I am wearing in the first photo is by Wilfred, which they sell at Aritzia, and is from the pop-up! You can't quite tell since I am wearing a cardigan over it, but it is a sleeveless shift dress with exposed zipper pockets and an exposed half-zipper on the back.  I like a lot of things about it.  Number one, it is a white dress, which my closet is lacking and I have been looking for one for awhile now.  Number two, it isn't see-through!  The material is thick and sturdy while still being soft.  Number three, it can be worn year-round.  Number four, it is in different silhouette than I usually wear - shift rather than fit and flare.  Number five, it was $60!  The retail price is $200 so I am pretty happy about that!
The Joe's Jeans I am wearing in the second picture are from the pop-up as well.  I don't own any other pairs of Joe's Jeans but have heard good things about them, so I decided to give them a try.  When I put them on they fit perfectly, so for $38 I had to have them!  I love the really dark rinse with no fading, the ankle length, and the skinny but not jegging fit.  They are really comfortable.
I also purchased a pair of white J Brand skinny jeans with distressing on the knees for $45 (the link doesn't have the knee rips but the style is the same).  They are the same mid-rise style as two other pairs of J Brand jeans that I own (these, these), so I had a feeling they would work well and luckily they did!

Because it seemed like I was kind of obsessed with red tones last week, I consciously tried to stay away from them this week, which resulted in a lot of black and white!  Not the norm for me, but that's ok!

The remote for my camera has been 'misplaced' so no outfit pics are happening this week.  That means that this will be my last post of October outfits, and early next week I'll put up my monthly outfit roundup.

Happy Halloween y'all!

So it looks like I am really loving reds this month, hey?  LOL  I swear it wasn't planned!
Also I am wearing a couple of new, or new-to-the-blog items this month!
First, this white blouse from Dynamite.  I wore this top in (you guessed it) burgundy last month (seen here).
Second, this pony hair leopard belt that I got on sale at Gap and these pony hair leopard d'orsay flats from J.Crew Factory (not longer online :()that I ordered in the summer.  Love them both!
Third, this super soft and cozy sweater from Gap and this casual sweater from Old Navy.
Lastly, this polka dot blouse from H&M that I picked up a while back to replace my other polka dot blouse (also from H&M).  I don't see it online but check in stores!

I can't believe next weekend is Halloween!  Do you have any costumes planned and parties lined up?  We don't have any plans just yet so we'll see what happens!

Hi everyone!  Here's my Monthly Outfit Roundup for September!  Sorry it's so late - it's literally half way through October today and I'm only just getting to it - eek!  What can I say, life has been busy lately and with a couple of weekends away (last weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving) there hasn't been much time left to blog.  Keeping it short and sweet today as I've got October outfit pics to edit!

Hey everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work from the past two weeks.
The weekend before last T & I took a 3-day weekend to celebrate my cousin's wedding in Pemberton.  It was beautiful!  We spent Sunday night in Whistler and saw the supermoon lunar eclipse rising above Whistler mountain in the clear night sky; it was pretty amazing!  Anyways, I only had two outfit pics from the week before and no time to blog so I decided to roll them up with last week's pics for one big final September-outfit blog post.  Whew!

I purchased these booties from Steve Madden online, on sale, and am so happy I did!  (Unfortunately they are sold out now!)  I was worried that they maybe were too trendy slash that I wouldn't be able to wear them this fall and by next Spring I wouldn't be into them anymore.  BUT so far I love them and even though they are heels I actually wear them.  The heel height is a very manageable 2.5 inches which I think is my perfect height.

The crop top/high-waisted skirt combo is slightly out of my comfort zone, but it's really hard to find tops to wear with this skirt, so I decided to just go for it!  All the girls at work really liked the outfit, so I think my chance paid off!  Also, I have to tell you, one of the reasons I don't wear a lot of pencil or bodycon skirts is because my stomach is my "problem area".  You know that body part that for some reason you are just never happy with and are always fixated on?  My tummy is that for me, I always feel like it's sticking out!  So, I got myself a pair of Spanx so I can rock all those skirts with confidence and not have them go to waste just hanging in my closet!
