Happy Halloween!

This post is a bit of a doozy - sorry about that!  Since it's the end of the month I also have my monthly outfit roundup to sort out and get posted.  Hopefully Friday!

So a couple of new items here to discuss, as well as some others that have been received/returned or I am thinking about.  First up, this dark floral peplum blouse from Dynamite.  Dynamite is a Canadian clothing store that also owns the brand Garage (terrible brand name for clothing IMO).  My sister and I are often able to find good work appropriate clothing from Dynamite, at reasonable (comparable to H&M's office wear) prices.  For example, this top is priced at $40 and I had a 20% off coupon.  Some people have told me they perceive Dynamite as a younger, more 'clubby' vibe.  I can see where they are getting that (short, bodycon dresses!) but I really like their blouses (obvs - this one is from there too) and also just purchased this vest which I am excited to wear over everything.

Next up, this tie-neck dress from Old Navy.  After trying on the XS in-store at the beginning of September (aka forever ago) I finally ordered the Petite XS to try during a 40% off promo.  Unfortunately it was too short!  Ugh.  But customer service was so good they did my exchange for a Petite S and shipped them right away with no charge.  I'm happy to say the Petite S fit!  I got this solid navy blue as well as the navy blue and white pattern.

That's it for this post (I did a LOT of damage this month!) but I have also ordered (and returned) these boots - I thought they would be perfect but they ended up looking too wide/clunky :(.  I've ordered these as a replacement and love them with pants but am on the fence about how they look with dresses and skirts.  Also they are a bit higher than what I normally wear so I am a little worried I won't wear them as much as I intend to.  I've also ordered these tops (here, here) which are pretty casual so you may not see them on the blog, but are keepers.  This top, these jeans and this scarf just arrived today but I haven't tried them on yet so not sure!  I will keep you updated and hopefully see you back here on Friday!

Sorry about the blurriness of some of these pics!  It has been really dark some mornings which makes it difficult to get a good shot.

I am really loving two new additions to my closet - this floral long-sleeved dress from Old Navy and this pleated peplum top from Banana Republic.  I ordered two more long-sleeved dresses from Old Navy (they were supposed to arrive on Friday!) and I really hope they work.  I tried on the XS in-store and it was too roomy overall so hopefully the Petite XS fits!  The floral dress above fit great in regular XS, btw :)

Halloween is coming up next weekend!  I would love to hear if any of you are dressing up and what your costumes are!  T and I don't have any plans for dressing up this year, but I am excited for our annual Stanley Park Ghost Train ride!  If you haven't heard of it, check out their website here.  It's not at all scary (it's really for kids) but I love going and T humours me :)  I think we missed out last year, but the year before we went to Nook for dinner first and sat next to Jamie Dornan(!) and this year I think we'll go to The Flying Pig.

As you can see, I've been doing my nails more!  Actually, I've been using Essie's Gel Couture line which claims "up to 14 days of luxurious wear and instant gel-like shine, no UV lamp needed."  I have found I get about 4 days before chipping begins, but unlike regular polish, the chips are smaller and less noticeable.  I think if I were better at painting the edges of my nails it would last even longer.  I like how the formula is thicker and the brush is bigger.  For the red colour I am wearing above, 2 coats is all that is necessary (I hate doing 3 coats!).  I also have this creamy apricot colour called "Spool Me Over" which I really like (requires 3 coats).  I think I will try "Touch Up" or "Take me to Thread" next.  Have you tried Essie Gel Couture?  What are your favourite colours?

Hi everyone!  Just to let you know, my favourite pointy-toe loafers from Aldo are back in stock, and with even more colours!  The "Bone" and "Medium Brown" colours are calling my name!  If you're interested, I found they run true to size and the leather is soft and supple which allows them to stretch out a bit - no breaking in required!  In other black flats news, I need a replacement pair of ballerina flats to replace my beloved Vince Camuto "Ellen" flats - the leather is starting to peel on the toe and heel :(  I am also thinking I need a pair of d'orsay or regular pointy-toe leather or suede black flats.  These ones from J.Crew Factory look promising and I have had good success with their suede flats in the past (I wear my grey ones all.the.time - see here, here, here).  But then I was on the Aldo website and how cute are thesethese and these?  Please let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions!!

My skirt in the third pic is from J.Crew but I think from a season or two ago.  I purchased it at a consignment store as I felt like I needed a black skater skirt in my arsenal.  It's been on my list for awhile but I had a really tough time finding one that I liked!  It couldn't be too short, too poufy, see-through, cotton jersey (I find the material really quickly and has a more casual vibe, which was not what I was looking for).  When I tried this skirt on, initially I thought it might be a bit too 'flippy' at the bottom, but looking at these pictures, it definitely isn't.  So glad I purchased it!  You know I usually ascribe to the theory that if I don't LOVE something, I don't buy it.  It can't just be 'good' or 'okay'.  But sometimes I will take chance on something, like this skirt, and it totally pays off!

As always, thank you for reading!
