Mister and I decided to celebrate our Valentine’s day in Montreal a few days ago since we had exams on the actual day. It was so, so, so nice! Montreal is just 2 hours away from Ottawa and it’s a great a mini getaway that was long overdue.
This is the outfit I wore there for the car ride. The aritzia sweater I’m wearing is the one I bought in my recent haul at AMH consignment store. I’m actually wearing it again right now, don’t judge me. It’s SO comfortable. I’ve had those boots for 3 years now, it’s so time for them to be retired but I can’t bring myself to do it, they go with everything! I’m wearing my favorite MK watch that I love dearly. The jeans are some oldies that are always suitable for long car rides!
I was recently introduced to this site called ioffer.com.
It’s a site that sells many knock off designer purses (& many other things). It’s very similar to eBay, but definitely not as user friendly. I’ve wanted a Louis Vuitton Speedy 30, as well as a quilted Chanel purse for ages…but they are clearly out of my budget atm. I ordered a “Louis Vuitton” purse & wallet yesterday so I’m anxious to see how they compare in person…EEK! I’m so nervous (at least the purse was only $33 with shipping!!)
I looked like a mad woman on my way to the post office after class. WATCH OUT PEOPLE, I have some where to be… ahem.
I think I’m addicted to that anxious feeling of opening a shipped package. “Is it going to be the right order?” Will it be everything I’m expecting?” “Will it fit?”
First impression: amazing quality. They are everything I wanted and more - I’m so happy. I ordered size 8 for some reason, even though I’m usually an 8 1/2. I’m so glad I did because these are a little big, nothing a little insert can’t fix ;)
The inside is the same suede material as the outside, so that’s a concern on those sweaty summer nights, but again, insert = solution to that problem. They are really comfortable (that’s if you’re used to really high heels) The higher the better for me!!
They shipped in 8 days. Grand total of $39 after everything, including my 20% first order promo. Canadian’s pay an additional $9 shipping on regular orders, BUT for your first order you get 20%, and if someone refers you, you get another 20% off your second order (Covers the shipping cost).
If you’re new to the wonderful world of Shoe Dazzle: Its a monthly subscription service for shoes, handbags, and jewelry, everything is $39. If you don’t see anything that dazzles you that month, you just skip the month between the 1st and 5th of that month. Easy as pie.
oh no..not another subscription service. This one was completely justified though because it’s 1 cent for a box. Yes you heard right, 1 cent for your first box. How can you say no? *itches neck* I do plan on cancelling after I receive my first box since I have way too many nail polishes that haven’t even been opened.

I almost died when I saw these in my Showroom @ ShoeDazzle this month. Perfect Combo of badass and chic. They ended up selling the studded boots that were shipped back, very sad I know. BUT if this is what my credit is going towards, maybe it was meant to be :) I am in lust. <3
Received my first ever Luxe Box yesterday and I’m so anxious to do a review!! I really wanted to do one with my camera, but the webcam will have to suffice. P.s - SO happy with the products received. YAY! xo
