Some things I got when I went shopping today. I wanted to go see H&M because they finally opened a store in Metrotown (the biggest mall in the Vancouver area) but I didn’t end up buying anything from them! There was one chiffon dress (on my list!) that was close to coming home with me before I realized that it’d always stay in my closet because it didn’t suit any occasion that I could think of wearing it for. I’m really proud of my restraint actually, it was a really pretty dress but it was just unnecessary. 

Otherwise I am completely in love with everything bought today! Especially the tribal print sweater, I love how it looks like a sweater with character.

I got my knits and my leather, next is the boots and the bag….

fall 2011 wishlist


Its been over a month since I last updated, I’m sorry! Balancing school, work, and volunteering with hobbies on the side is still something I’m working out. What I have worked out is what I want this season, and it starts with…
1. Cherry blossom pink Chiffon Ruffle dress – I dislike shiny dresses. My friends are looking at prom dresses and they’re all shiny! 
2. Nude ruffle dress in a heavier fabric – casual looking enough to be worn under a leather jacket
3. Faux leather motorcycle jacket in a cream colour – easy style and warmth on the go
4. Black faux leather pants
5. Suede Ankle Booties
6. Infinity Scarf – good excuse to wear my hair in a ponytail or bun
7. Thick knit gloves with design

Winter in Vancouver is pretty much fall in Vancouver without leaves and 5-10 degrees Celsius colder.  We get a lot of rain so waterproof is essential.

1. More chunky knit sweaters – The one pictured above is from old navy. Can you believe that? I think its so cute! 
2. Waterproof Trench Coat – my parkas are too thick to wear with thick sweaters
3. Jeans – preferably skinny so they fit well into boots
4. Over the Knee faux leather boots – buy stylish, flat heeled, tall, faux leather boots and use them as rain boots!
5. Suitcase style handbag – not sure what these are called but they’d be perfect. Classy, sophisticated and waterproof.
6. New Wallet
7. more Jewellery to play up boring sweaters

Must – Chunky Knit sweaters, Cowl neck sweater, Batwing sweater, Striped sweater and a Cowichan print!
