Home, Home on the Range

Tuesday, October 27, 2009
While I may have lifted my shopping ban I'm not out running up my Visa bill. However, there was a certain degree of obligation to check out the new Forever21 store and indulge myself in a few other items. Of course there are still other things I need to complete the major items on my winter checklist, but there's always time (but not always money - ha ha).

My visit to Forever21 wasn't as successful as I had initially hoped, but I did manage to get a few great pieces. I got a black knit Herve Leger inspired bandage dress. For those of you who really know me, it's not the type of dress I would typically wear, but for the price (and the sex appeal) how could I say no? I also got 2 fabulous statement necklaces, one which I wore out to brunch with Jennifer of JK Models, and bloggers Nicole, Ace & Anya.


I also bought 2 new books this week. A cupcake book (even though I'm pretty sure I have at least 2 others) from HomeSense and a novel, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible, a satire on, well, the Bible, posing difficult questions like, "How did Joseph explain Mary's pregnancy to the guys at work?".

But my favourite purchase lately would have to be the ShoeDazzle shoes I bought at the beginning of September, only to return them for a smaller size. They arrived while I was away!

My wonderful YSL knockoffs. Actually, I prefer these to the YSL version because of the heel. While the caged YSL heel is fabulous, these definitely suit my personality more. They're very comfortable to wear and they make me insanely tall! In them I'm close to 5'10"! Good thing I have a tall (6'1") boyfriend!

Wow that gold chain and pearl necklace is a dead ringer for Banana Republic's High Society Necklace. Gorgeous. I love how statement necklaces are everywhere this season.

Great picks, all of them! I'm glad you went with the YSL knockoff heels. And tall boyfriends are excellent for wearing heels with, aren't they? ;-)

I'm sad we didn't get to see each other Tuesday! I hope you had fun with MizzJ.
