Arthur and Livingston Event and Giveaway

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Arthur and Livingston Trunk Show and Necklace Bar event at Bloomingdale’s Short Hills and meet the amazing designer Nicole Antoinette. Both Nicole and her creations are absolutely lovely. I had a blast trying everything on and talking with her. It’s not often that you get to meet the inspiration behind what you wear. Such beautiful colours and concepts! I couldn’t help but get one for myself!

For my outfit I went with simple chic. I wanted a very simple top that would appropriately show off the jewellery. Fortunately it was a nice cool day so I got to pull out my new Chelsea boots for the first time. Yeah! It was also coincidentally right after I had my hair done. Perfect timing!

Don’t forget that these are the last few hours of the giveaway which ends at Midnight EST on September 24th! You too could win one of these amazing, trendy bar necklaces for yourself!

Fall For It

The second the temperature drops the tiniest little bit I get completely psyched for fall. I feel more like myself in dark colours and boots. I started out getting dressed this evening in much lighter coloured garb. I couldn’t do it. I kept looking in the mirror and wondering who was staring back at me. I’ve realized that you should stay true to who you are — doesn’t only apply to outfits. If you’re not comfortable in an outfit don’t wear it out. More importantly, don’t buy it. Only spend your money on pieces that call to you and make you feel awesome!

I Gave In

I swore I would never wear Birkenstocks. They’re hippie shoes. I’m not a hippie. I lied! I kept seeing them on people and thinking — not gonna happen! Well… it happened. It actually happened more than once, as you’ll soon see, but these are the first ones I’m sharing with all of you. Of course I had to be just a little bit different. I went for the shiny black patent ones. They were actually really hard to find, especially in my little size! The rest of the outfit is from Zara. I can’t believe I was so slow getting on that wagon. Figures that the only store remotely near me is now closed for renovations for about 3 months. Now what?

Here We Go Again

It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve actually just had another surgery. It’s hopefully the last major surgery in the breast cancer battle that’s been controlling my life for almost a year now. I finally had my permanent implants put in! Not that I want to say I was excited about this one — one shouldn’t use the words excited and surgery in the same sentence, but it does mean that this saga is hopefully heading toward the end.

These photos were taken a few days prior to my surgery. I’ve been dying to wear something as classy as a pair of Louboutin pumps with something as casual as a pair of ripped up skinny jeans. I love to mix styles and take my favourite pieces and put them together in unexpected ways. It’s one of those things that mum probably wouldn’t get, you know. Make a statement. Throw on amazing jewellery and amazing shoes and the rest of the outfit will speak for itself.
