Wardrobe Detoxing

So I did a little shopping today, window shopping that is. Everywhere and everyone is all geared up with Olympic wear as of late, that I feel the need to draw away from the reds and whites for once. I did try on a couple of things though. However, I wasn't wow-ed by anything I tried. Unfortunately didn't find anything I really absolutely had to have. Been wanting more florals in my wardrobe now that it's spring! But I've been leaning towards investment pieces, like the boyfriend blazers, and denim. Well here's what I tried today.. One, a fad, and the other, just something I can't see myself wearing one too many times. What do you guys think? Would love to hear you ladies' opinions!

I found this sequin harem pants, decided to try them on, and well.. I quite like them. It kinda adds access weight to the waist though. But that's the look. Well I'd pair it with a white fitted blazer, and some gladiator-styled heels/nude pumps, and I'm good to go. But honestly, how many times can I wear them? It's definitely not a piece that goes with just about anything, and after all this fad will fade eventually. And for that price, ($49.90 I believe) I would much rather invest that towards a timeless piece. The next item I tried on was this pink bandage skirt. Very Herve Leger inspired. If you knew me, you would know that I was immediately drawn to this skirt because it was pink lol. Let's just say.. I'm very drawn to all things pink and shiny haha. Literally anything. I loved the color.. but the style not so much. It wasn't too flattering on me I thought. But again. Love the color! If only they had a dress in that color. I can't seem to find anything I absolutely love nowadays.. which is sad to say :( My shopping list at the moment consists of just investment pieces. Mackage leather jacket, Michael Kors watch, Talula dress shirt, and maybe a pair of jeggings. Oh and rings! I have a serious obsession with cocktail rings as of late. What's on your shopping list?

hey girl, sorry i've been mia - exams and vacays have been consuming my life for a little while. also, thanks for taking the time to enter my giveaway :) i took a trip to the mall today and blew about 700 at holts on a bag .. guh. THATS whats been on my list - a staple black everyday leather bag. i LOVE those sequin harem pants though. i know it seems flashy but (maybe cause im biased..) i love all things glamourous ! in my opinion, do it ! great for going out and its not TOO unique that you can't pair it up with different things. i would even do a denim jacket with it.

I love that pink on you!
Where is that skirt from? I was planning to purchase one similar from BCBG, but never did.

Im planning to purchase more shoes. I have a pair of Nine West leather zipper booties that I have my eye on & Im always collecting jewellery.

I haven't bought anything for the longest time! Oh wait, I bought something yesterday. Anyways, I'm dying for a REAL black leather jacket, a cream winter coat (although it's almost spring), printed cardigans, and silk shirts. But lately I've been spending my money on food and ice caps at Tim Hortons :D

no worries girl! i've been swamped by projects and stuff the past week or so as well :( oooh what kinda bag was it? show me a picture! :P i haven't dropped by holts for the longest time, the crowd around that area is insane. yeah i'm still thinking about those pants.. i quite like them. it's different though! and i like your suggestion, maybe i will try it out :) xox

i love the pink too :( but i'm not too sure about it yet. it wasn't one of those "Ok-i-gotta-have-it" buys :/ this one is from H&M actually. $15! what a steal eh? you should go check it out :) I LOVE SHOES....i think i buy too much though. my parents are constantly telling me to move my shoes elsewhere! definitely jewelry! i love visiting vintage stores or stores along gastown for those finds. or even h&m + f21. cheap and chic :)
