Wrapped Up


this past weekend i attended a friend’s baby christening and i was struggling to find something appropriate to wear. i remembered i ordered a black scallop wrap dress from Dorothy Perkins before Christmas last year and never got to wear it., so i thought that would be the perfect opportunity for it, i paired it with black pantyhose and a black metal capped point toed heels.

Plus i wore my natural hair down for once, still kind off disappointing that they refused to grow back.

the story about my shoes was that i was contemplating buying them because i feel they are too seasonal, if anything i hate spending money on something i know only has hype for a few months or so and than not again. so i was looking for a simple black point toed shoe in Zara and seemed they ran short in my size, so as i was still walking around the mall in search of shoes i saw it through a window in sirens, i went in and bought them first because it was so cheap ( CAD 20)  and i saw something else i wanted and second because i knew i would not need much use of them for too long. now i have beef with the store when i once spent about 150 dollars on a dress online to find it at 25 dollars in that store that is when i started to loathe everything about the store. certainly reminded me of a duplicating country where its citizens look like they squinting all day, a place i would rather not mention.

Retro Ambitions


Its Thursday and i had forgot( well i didn’t forget i just thought i could wiggle my way out of it) that i had a din din date. It was a long day and considering im still sick the last thing i wanted to do was get ready to go out for food! Though i had a very persistent and persuasive date i got myself out of bed and got ready. I had little to almost no make up, just a light foundation mascara and lipstick in a subtle plum color.

I had to step outside for a quick second in to snap a few pics purposely for this outfit post for you guys, lucky it was not as cold today as the previous day so i was in luck.

I got a metallic gold faux leather pants from Asos recently, initially i was looking for a black faux leather trouser/legging than i remembered  “TRY TO STEER CLEAR OF BLACK JANET”  so my second option was oxblood leggings with a few faux leather panels but as i was deciding whether or not to order it i came across this faux leather metallic trouser in gold i swear i kept pondering to order it for atleast 3 days before i actually put in the order. i must say it is the boldest purchase i have ever made!

My biggest concern with this look too was which shoes to pair it with, i decided on my metallic silver Steve Madden platforms i wasn’t too sure about the ensemble but what the heck im pushing boundaries right now.

Peplum Top : BEBE

Faux Fur Trouser: Asos

Platform Pumps: Steve Madden

Trench Coat: BEBE

I am back and safely tucked in and enjoying my illness being tendered too, fortunately for me its no longer Thursday its now Friday. Have good weekend guys. Tchuss…

LATEST CRAZE


So i have for the longest time been looking for the perfect blush everywhere, the look i always try to create with my makeup is a sunkissed/bronze but very natural effect with a touch of color by playing around with lip colors.

On a very spontaneous shopping spree i decided to try mac ( yes you can ask me under which rock iv been living) i dont usually use mac products because of my oily skin type, but i took a chance and i loved my purchases.
