Happy New Year.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! I'm not much of a party-er so I'll be going over my friend's place and counting down with my lovelies. How are you spending New Year's Eve?

I don't think I've ever been so in love with a dress as I am with this one. Isn't this just gorgeous?

A Pink & Black Celebration

I'm scrambling for outfits I can wear to the New Year's Eve party with a very strict dress colour code of Pink + Black. And all I can think of is this Yumi dress I got awhile back from Charlie's Boutique for my friend's wedding. I say it should suffice with the theme - I'll be pairing it with my black blazer from Bicyclette and accessorise it with all things black: jewelry, hoisery and my JC wedges. Done and done... unless... a hot magenta dress magically appears from now until Saturday. What will you be wearing during the countdown to a New Year?

This & That Cape

And so my cape obsession continues on... I dropped by Anthropologie Yorkville after S told me that they still had several of the This & That Cape. Isn't this a beauty? Part cape, part bolero. And it was 50% off from the sale price. So I just had to get it. This makes it cape #3 in as many weeks. I can't wait to pair this with my wide-leg trousers.

Fur + Stripes

This was taken a couple of days ago... my hair was quite co-operative and I was so proud that the fact I only spent 5mins on it. I paired my fur vest that I bought from some random store in Pacific Mall and a newly bought Joe Fresh (on sale 2 for $16) striped shirt and I am finally wearing the necklace I got 2 years ago from my cousin. Rustic chic is what I call it.

A girl can dream...

The beautiful designs from the classic Chanel. I can really dream, can I not? But I'm working my way up. Aside from Burberry, Chanel is one of the labels I would love to have in my closet. The quilted design is such timeless - what girl wouldn't want it? This will be on my wishlist next year, perhaps! Merry Christmas....

Sou Brette

Even though we are an ocean apart... D is the ultimate shopping buddy. Yesterday, he emails me with photo attachments of accessories by an Indonesian designer, Muqliza Imroni. And I am completely head over heels with her stuff: Sou Brette. I really could not decide for the life of me which style I wanted... but in the end I've decided on the Luminarie bracelet in blue within her Unknown Waters Collection. I cannot wait to see it in person!!

Still working away my resolutions... I figure I should be more realistic next year and list out things I will and can do continuously in the year 2012. Are you also making a list for 2012?

Laces and silk... oh my!

Just days before Christmas and I'm still scrambling to buy gifts and then to send some out. Procrastination + forgetfulness has gotten the best of me this year.... Are you scrambling to finish up your list?

Cape, please!

We were here for 30mins and came out of nothing but you come in for 5mins and walk away with a cape... you are the true shopaholic. - quoted by M

I've added another cape into my collection. I spotted this cape from Anthropologie several months ago, I tried it on and instantly loved it but not the price tag. So I put it back onto the hanger. Fast-forward to a month ago... I saw it again and this time on sale. I tried it again and thought to myself... should I? Nah. So I put it back to the hanger. Fast-forward to tonight, meeting with the girls at Shops at Don Mills, I popped my head because Anthro was having a sale - S pointed out the green cape - it was ONLY $78 PLUS 30%. I tried it on... and bought it.

Wanted: Laptop Sleeve

After winning a laptop from my work party - this marks my first official laptop. Yes! Ladies & Gents, I never had a laptop until now... I never really see the need for it until recently with my nomadic travellin' and lack of concentration when I work at home. So now I'm on a hunt for a cute laptop sleeve... I am lovin' this Marc Jacobs Neoprene sleeve... now only if it came in that colour in my laptop size...

Tote Lovin'

Aren't these tote bags just the cutest... they are from Maude & Tilda - stumble upon while going through my blog roll... 

I'm on such a tote lovin' mood I'll be getting the dream tote from fieldguided from my fave Queen West store Bicyclette Boutique

2 Earrings later...

A shopping date with D at Queen St. West was almost deemed sad and pathetic because we were still empty-handed after going in & out to several of our fave boutiques. Then we walked in Love of Mine (my go-to-jewelry-store) and found out that Toronto-based designer, Eliza Kozurno was doing a trunk show... and long and behold I fell in love. I love all of her pieces so much so I couldn't decide and walked away with 2 pairs of earrings with D & V's words of shopping wisdom.

Hello 2012.

How cute is this wall calendar by Alex Perlin? I love the softness of the watercolour. Time to add that to my wish list! I got it!

Happy December.

Sorry for the very slow post-writings or lack there of. It's been crazy at work with the Holiday season upon us. Anyways, let's get very merry and jolly with this Nordic Cardigan from Joe Fresh. Adorbs, don't you think? I believe it also comes in red and blue from what I've seen in the stores.
