New Clothes. Part 1.
Deena had me take some photos of my current wardrobe so she could see what I had. After taking a dozen or so shots for her, I realized that many of the things had to go. Some didn't fit anymore. Some were really out of style. Some were pilled and one was even stained. The following are a few of the things I kept. Most of them contain "newer" pieces, which were bought in the last two years.Bliss, in Tisdale. You must check it out if you are ever there. They have great, unique pieces. You are basically looking at everything brown that I own in these four pictures. There is only one sweater missing and you would have it all. I love brown, but tend to lean more toward black. In fact while shopping with Deena, I didn't buy one brown item!
Pinterest Told Me To. . . The sweater is one I bought at Old Navy post-Boone, because it was loose around my middle, not to mention warm and comfy. Statement jewelry is very in style (who knew?!) and you can wear it with anything - including mom-sweaters and t-shirts. I love how the necklace makes the shirt look nicer!
I love heels. And the taller the better. I'm short and there is something about a couple extra inches that makes me feel pretty and powerful all at once. Now to the shoe snob part. . . When Deena and I were in Toronto a couple of years ago, I needed some new pumps. I tried on at least a dozen different pairs of shoes in the price zone of $50 - $80. They ALL hurt my feet. Deena convinced me to try on a pair of $120 pumps. I was in heaven. They were like wearing runners; they were so comfy. Ever since then, I have only bought heels in the more expensive range. The nice thing about a few of the brands I buy is that I know my size in them is really consistent, so I can easily buy a pair of Nine West or Franco Sarto (my two favourites) online for a fraction of the price. Last summer I bought 2 pairs of Nine West on Amazon.com for the price of one - that being said, they took over 2 months to ship! I am usually not in a hurry and I love a good deal, so I would definitely look online for deals again! Last weekend I shopped around one more time, but this time for some cheaper flats. I tried to find reasonably priced ones, but they seriously aren't as comfy as the ones that are a bit more money. After this most recent excursion, I decided that my feet enjoy comfort and I am completely fine if they are a bit snobby about it!
I am having a hard time taking pictures of my clothing undisturbed in the daylight. My two little munchkins get in the way. One piles blankets on the floor and does cannon balls off the bed and the other rifles through every drawer and carries, perfume, ear plugs, brushes, and whatever else he can get his hands on all over the house. I will try to get some kid-free time on the weekend so you can see a few of my other favourite purchases!
*Deena told me when we were shopping that she was a shoe snob. When I realized I was one too, I stole the phrase. Oops. Lucky for me Deena shares well :-)
