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.
