Here is a photo of some of my stylish friends…

From time to time I will post a photos of my friends and their ADORABLE outfits.

Everytime I see Candice I want to steal her look and wear it. She’s very stylish and put together – but that makes sense as she is the Editor of KV Style.

Kelly works with Adam at IBM.  Kelly is my only close friend that buys designer jeans. True story.

Candice and Kelly:

Winners is on sale!

Wow! Adam and I went tonight to check out the maxi dress situation.. and I was shocked. Their final clearance must have just started – because EVERYTHING is marked down!

There were dresses for $10 (and I didn’t see any over $24!), tank tops for $5-$10… and PURSES! so many purses!

Go there! You might find something!

Let’s talk about magazine subscriptions!

I have 4 of them.

I subscribe to Flare, Elle, Fashion and (soon) Lou Lou. I like to subscribe to Canadian magazines for a few reasons…

  • The prices are accurate. (i.e. that dress is $75, not $75 + exchange)
  • The stores are ones I can actually shop at (lol @ no passport!)
  • It’s almost guaranteed that they will ship it to my home. Living in the maritimes ain’t easy.

Elle is my absolute favourite. Not that I don’t like reading… but their articles are short, to the point and pertinent to my interests. The spare nothing on a photo shoot and their spreads are beautiful. So fierce.

There are obviously perks to having subscriptions.

  • I don’t need to go to the drug store to buy it.
  • My cost/magazine is around $1.50. When they tell you it’s like getting 8 issues free – they aren’t lying.
  • I learn about trends a few months in advance. I guess this isn’t a subscription perk, as much as a “reading a magazine” perk. The advance notice gives me a heads up.

What are your favourite magazines… and should I read them too?

A few updates….

ok, so update number 1.

I went to Ardene, Claire’s and RW&Co. to look for a leaf necklace – no such luck. I might try and order one from forever21. I’ve never used their website but I’m going to try it. i also just realized I didn’t check Stay tuned.

While I was wondering around the mall, I realized that Spring has their summer shoes on for up to 70% off retail! This is insane!

Here are two examples of shoes that will translate into the fall/winter:

$14.98 in Black and Bone (man made materials, hollah)

$14.98 in Black and Bone (man made materials, hollah)

$19.98 in Yellow, $29.98 in turquoise, purple and white (man made materials!)

$19.98 in Yellow, $29.98 in turquoise, purple and white (man made materials!)

Here are a few other sites that are great to buy shoes online from…

(Pros for me – most sell almost exclusively vegan footware)

And if you’re in the mood to drool…
