[ETC] My (Rather Expensive) Birthday Wishlist

I know I'm being very ambitious with these items, but a girl can dream right? My birthday is coming up in a month and a bit (May 26th!) and if I had money to afford all of these, I would totally splurge. Yes it's a lot of black, but honestly I don't own THAT much black. Of course, I would accessories these with some more colourful outfits.

First, is the Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C. Clutch. Unfortunately, after 3 years of having my Marc by Marc Jacobs purse, it's really starting to fall apart. It's also absolutely filthy on the inside and I've tried having it cleaned, but no one wants to take the risk of damaging it. I like having my every day bag to be simple enough in style, but roomy enough that I can fit my essentials. I'd definitely go for the silver hardware, as 99% of the jewellery I wear is silver. Next are the classic Ray Ban Wayfarer in black. After having mine for almost 6 years I got in a little bike accident and they snapped right at the bridge of the nose. It was weird how devastated I was for an inanimate object. Finally we have the Deetz sandal by Jeffrey Campbell! These aren't so much to replace anything, I just think they're really neat. I've been wanting some Jeffrey Campbell's for a long time, but never really liked any of the pairs that would be somewhat practical for me. Then I saw Bunny wearing them in her JC collection video, and fell in love! Maybe these will be my birthday present to myself? We'll see...

Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C. Clutch - $295 Rebecca Minkoff
Ray Ban Classoc Wayfarer - $150 Urban Outfitters
Deetz Caged Sandal by Jeffrey Campbell - $155 Urban Outfitters

[FASHION] First Fashion Friday at UO

I work at Urban Outfitters Ottawa you see (come visit me! I'd love to say hello!) and now it is mandatory that we have a "Fashion Friday" every Friday. We're given a sort of theme to go by, and we show our own version of it, by trying it on! I felt like sharing this with you because we had a lot of fun doing it...and our outfits were pretty gosh darn rad.

Yes....all the clothes are from Urban Outfitters.

[OUTFIT] Free of Winter

Firstly, I really really do want to apologize for my hiatus. I've had a lot of ups and downs in the past few weeks. I really just needed some time to get myself back together. But I am back! And now that the weather has finally decided to get slightly warmer, soon I'll be able to take more photos outside! I am very excited about that. Today, I did get a little ahead of myself by wearing shorts. Of course, I didn't go out in them, it's still a good 7 to 8 degrees away before wearing shorts without tights. We're getting there though, right Canada?! I got my Free People top in the mail today! I loved it so much I needed to share it with you. It's got the right amount of high/low to it, some waist high slits on the side to show off just a little bit of skin, and the perfect oversized feel to it. I'll definitely be wearing this one a whole lot on cooler summer nights.

Shorts - Zara
Boots - Nordstrom Rack
