"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Pretty in pink

Hello bellas! Oh the joy of working two jobs and not hoping into bed until 3 am.... and yet I am still blogging. Guess that makes me crazy! Well I apologize, but I am going to keep this short for now since my eyes are fighting to stay open, and who knows what I might write in this sleep-deprived state! :) I will leave you with just my outfit pictures for now, but check back tomorrow afternoon for an updated post! Every Wednesday in October is show your pink support day at my office, which naturally I love for many reasons, so of course I had to join the cause! Not that it was a hardship since I am obsessed with pink anyways. Ok ladies, good night and good luck!


(P.S. I was doing sooo well on no shoe buying... until today)

In honor of yesterday's tribute to scarves, I had to show you one of my personal favorites! Shirt: H&M Paris, Dress: BCBG, Scarf: Paris, Leggings: Paris, Boots: Madden Girl, Watch: White House Black Market, Rings: Charlotte Russe, Grandmother's vintage collection, Earrings: gifted.

One of my favorite purchases from Paris, and I got it from a street vendor for 3 euros!
Even sporting my breast cancer awareness watch! I know it is a little hard to see but the ring on my pinky is one of my absolute faves! It is one of my grandmother's vintage rings and she gave it to my mother the day I was born, because it was my birth stone. I love wearing sentimental pieces and this one is beautiful to boot. Unfortunately my fingers are larger than my grandmother's so it only fits my pinky. But I still wear it!

Yes, I know this has nothing to do with clothes, but how cute are these breast cancer awareness cookies?? I couldn't resist them in the caf. today! I still haven't eaten them, but I have no doubt they will be as delicious as they are adorable!
Bisous!

  4. hey thanks for checking out my blog:)

    I have a couple upcoming posts drafted on shopping vintage and thrifting so I'll borrow from those to try and answer your question.

    I say give thrifting a try and hopefully you can get lucky. Here are some suggestions for shopping vintage fur (faux and real)

    - Go shopping before it actually starts to get cold and people need warm coats. most people don't buy fur coats in the summer. its the best time to go

    - try and go the day the store puts new merchandise on the floor, you'll have the best selection

    - try church rummage sales, craigslist/kijiji for estate sales(often you can find vintage clothes for cheap)

    - look and see if there are any upcoming vintage clothing sales in your city (if you live in Ontario there is a big one Sunday Nov 15th in Ottawa)

    - you may have to go 'thrifting' a few times before you find what you are looking for.

    Most of all don't give up and keep looking!

    Sorry that was so long, i hope it is helpful.
