Spring Plaid...

[skirt; club monaco][plaid shirt;costa blanca][tank; old and random][belt;joe fresh!]

Wore this to see Stars on Ice last night! It was essentially a little birthday treat for my mom and plus we have always loved watching figure skating on t.v but have never experienced it in person. It was amazing! Olympic gold medalists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were awesome but I think that Canadian all stars Jamie Sale and David Pelltier stole the show =)

Couldn't find my fave grey cardigan so ended up just grabbing this plaid shirt to throw on top. I think it worked.. What do you think? A new way to wear plaid for these upcoming spring/summer months?

Also, heres a random outfit I wore to a friends birthday dinner. As you can tell, I'm kind of obsessed with skinny belts at the moment. They just seem to pull any outfit together =)

What a beautiful BCBG day...

Went out for dimsum with the family on Mother's Day. It was a beautiful sunny day so I thought I'd try out my new BCBG items =) Both the tank and purse can be found at the Bay. Actually bought these items when I attended their Spring Fashion Event a couple weeks back. The top was 25% off! But the bag was a birthday gift =) Thanks, Thom!

How did you guys spend your Mother's Day?

May Must Haves!

Was browsing around on Urban Outfitters' site... Couldn't help but share these lustworthy items with you. Really hoping I get the chance to stop by UO in a few weeks. Although, I think that might be a bad idea ;) However, it's my birthday soon! Perhaps I can convince some lovely people to buy these itmes for me! Teehee. Click on the image to enlarge it, you have to see these items in detail. Check them outtt!

Oh! Awhile ago I mentioned how I liked the idea of the ... dare I say it, "modern skort" trend. However this time around, the skort has had a dramatic makeover (and for the better thank goodness!), they are no longer ugly things your parents force you to wear. As you can see above, the skort has been reinvented, and are now the most adorable little short around. From far it looks like a frilly little mini, but guess what? They're shorts! So cute..

Just a brief description of my other must haves:
Still loving the corset like bodice (works as shirts or dresses). I'd like to call it a new classic item we all must own.
Love the bright blue colour of the rosette top. It's just so unique, and I'm a sucker for draping ;)
Everyone needs a little black dress. I like how elegant this one looks. As well, you don't see a strap like that everyday. Very pretty, sophisticated, and alluring? =)
And finally... saw this dress and immediately fell in love with the print and colour. Very Gucci-like. Also loving items that have a longer back. I want it so bad!

That's it for now. Xo

Whoa! Totally left this post without describing that gorgeous leather bag! But I don't think words are really needed here. It's a beautiful colour, classic shape, and it's convertible! Reminds me of Balenciaga. I must buy it.. Ta ta for now.

Silky Shirt Dress

Wore this dress about a week ago.. Love it. Only problem: it's 100% silk and clings like no other. Overall very comfy tho. Not a huge fan of the chambray shirt dress look. So this is my alternative ;) Hope your all having a good week. I shall try to make this blog a bigger part of my life! xo

Btw; I didn't start my day out wearing all of those rings. I only owned the gold flower one. My cousin gave me the other two at lunch. Absolutely in love with the silver one that wraps around my finger. So cute. Off to Vancouver in a couple of weeks. I think me shopping at Forever 21... shall be a very bad thing. At least the chances of me going completely broke there is highly unlikely..? ;)
