I am FREE AT LAST!!! YAY! Done my exams and just taking it easy for the next two or three weeks and then only time will tell! But, that is a whole different topic to explore, as for today I just wanted to share a quick outfit!
Since I am done with probably the most challenging academic year of my life, my mom and I decided to celebrate with some shopping :) I know, I am making excuses just to shop! We stopped by Sherway Gardens but left empty handed, and then headed to Holt Renfrew Last Call where I bought the cutest pair of Burberry jeans and the prettiest Candace Ang Headband.
The jeans were 65% off and cost a little over $100, which is amazing for Burberry. I am addicted to finding quality items but at an affordable price. I was never one to over-pay for designers, I just learned to find awesome deals. You can totally call me a label whore on a budget, I can't believe I just called myself that.
On another note, I am loving the lingerie trend... it is so sensual and pretty! Well, with an exception that the lingerie must match the garment ( no red on black action). So I bought a pretty bralette that looks like a cropped cami and decided to pair it with a simple semi-sheer tee. IT IS NOT AS SHEER AS IN THE PICTURES, IT'S THE FLASH! Despite being a bit apprehensive, I do like the look... as long as I have a jacket, blazer or sweater on top. That way it is more of a peek-a-boo effect! It was a daring step for me, but I just like the combination of casual with a touch of unexpected. I crossed my comfort zone and felt proud of doing it :P
As for the rest of the outfit, I paired my newly favorite pair of Wang pants with brogues and leather jacket. Simple and easy. As the finishing touch, I had to wear the new headband out of the store! I love it soo much and was too eager to wear it! The detailing is amazing... a cure bow made out of a zipper! How brilliant is that?
The designer of this headband is Candace Ang! She is a jewelry and fashion designer based in Vancouver, Canada. I am always proud to support Canadian talent and cannot wait to see Candace Ang's clothing line :) I adore easy and effortless piece that do not require lots of planning. All those bad hair days can now be cute, and that is the beauty finding perfect headpieces!I am wearing: ♥ Talula Babaton Semi-Sheer Tee — from Aritzia ♥ Blush Lace Bralette — from Winners ♥ T by Alexander Wang Sweatpants — from Revolveclothing.com ♥ Mackage "Leane" Lamb Leather Jacket — from Ssense.com ♥ Candace Ang Large Bow Zipper Headband — from Holt Renfrew Last Call ♥ A.V.Max Studd Cuff — from Bluefly.com ♥ Tiffany& Co Key Necklace — gift from Andrew ♥ Candela "Tokyo" Brogues - from Revolveclothing.com
Well, I am off to work on the store.... who knew it is so much work :P But it is almost ready! Spring Closet Overhaul is underway... I have lots to share and new posts to write up! Also, Andrew and I are planning on checking out Toronto's Alternative Arts& Fashion Week!!! It is an annual multi-arts event which features 200 national and international designers, visual artists, bands and performers every year. I've never had the chance to check it out but I feel that this is year!!!
But I must ask.... I know, I am so nosy :P
Wishing Everyone a Lovely Day!!!
