Asos

One of my favourite fashion stores to browse online is ASOS. Their products are very reasonably priced, and I just found out shipping is free! (Only problem is they don't list where the products are made so duty charges would be a surprise upon arrival). Last night I went through their jewellery, shoes and handbags and below are my favourites (click on the photo to be directed to the item on ASOS).

bloat

I went out for a dinner with my bestie last night. We ate like pigs and drank beer, so I'm  feeling large today. I grabbed the two "roomiest" shirts I own and threw on a belt in order to create some shape and hide the bloat. I swear, it looked good in the mirror in my bedroom so out I went to a friends for lunch. But as I edited these pics, I'm wondering if the mirror was wrong cause i'm not sure I like it. I think the problem is the jeans....



I attempted the first hair tutorial today. I didn't like the results in the mirror, but I think my mirror was wrong again because I'm not really minding how it looks in these pics. It's frizzy still, but i'm thinking that's unavoidable sans flat iron.

nothing special

Heading to an appointment today, and after yesterdays heels episode I decided to be cautious and wear my Emu's. Yup, Emu's. Cause this mama is too cheap for Uggs. 
I can hear Kim now..."Emu's are not footwear...they, along with your Lululemon's are crimes against fashion". I will preempt this by saying I will be warm, dry, and free from slips and falls. I win.

Also, meet Minnie. She's needy today.





Jeans: Gap
Sweater: H&M
Scarf: Dynamite
Boots: Emu

wednesday at the office



First part of the day I wore these boots:


But they are a little tight and the 4" heel is sometimes a bit much so I swapped them for these which are ridiculously comfy:


Sweater: Club Monaco (very old)
Shirt: Joe Fresh (old)
Belt: Banana Republic
Cords: J Brand Pencil leg
Boot #1: Jeffrey Campbell Rumble via Little Burgundy Shoes (now on half price!)
Boots #2: Jeffrey Campbell Dino (via Solestruck - now sold out)

seriously?

I cannot stand when stores have websites but do not offer online shopping. There's a pair of (jogging?) pants I saw at Aritzia before Christmas that are so unusual and about as fancy as one can get when talking about joggers. I want them. I didn't buy them because they were almost $100. They are now on sale but were not in the store when I was last at the mall. I just looked online, and found them BUT I CAN'T FRIGGIN' ORDER THEM. Stupid site. Stupid pants.

vintage blazer

Back in June I had purchased this vintage blazer from Justyna of chameleonic who used to have an online shop:


I wish I had of taken a closeup photo of the gawd-awful gold plastic buttons - 4 on the front and 3 on each sleeve. They were hideous and hindered me from wearing it in public. I finally got around to purchasing some new buttons and had my mom sew them on for me (thanks mom!!). I think it looks much better.



I wore it to work yesterday - will post some pics later. 

best pants ever

I wore my Corduroy Cargo leggings for the first time today. We went to a playgroup where I spend a lot of time on the floor. They were perfect...so comfy and much warmer then normal leggings.
Bad idea with the heels though, yesterday we had freezing rain...yikes!
