Some OOTDs and small small purchases lol

I bought this hat online a few weeks ago. I love hats! I actually saw this hat at this men's clothing store when I was with my boyfriend. Of course, I knew I could find it for cheaper online so I waited till I got home to search for one. Buying online is SO much better than in stores! I think this hat came to $40

My girlfriend's wedding is next month so I've been looking for dresses. I found a few Herve Leger dresses on Ebay for about $200-300 bucks but I didn't know what size I am. I went to the store to try them on and omg... they are skin tight. I could NOT zip up the extra small, the small fit me but it was hard to breathe, and the medium felt comfortable but was a little loose around my bust area. I'm wearing a medium in this picture! 

I bought this passport cover yesterday at Chapters. Grey snakeskin print... I couldn't resist!! I thought about buying a Tiffany and Co passport cover a few months ago but I'm glad I didn't because those were around $250 while this one was only $20! This also comes in blue and pink snakeskin. I actually really like shopping at Chapters because they have some pretty cute stuff

This is just a random picture I took of the sunrise during one of my nightshifts last week. So pretty :)

Shopping - Saving - Paying bills - GOALS!!

So I'm already sick of my Gucci bag and I want a new one (go figure). I have this list of dream bags that I want to eventually own but a new bag that I just recently started liking is the 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli Medium. I follow the blog Wendy's Lookbook and saw her Medium Pashli in black croc and fell in love instantly. AND... the bags aren't even that expensive!! About $900 CDN for a new one! 


BUT... I had an epiphany the other day and realized that it's time I start trying to save my money again. Especially because I will need to get my own place once I'm done nursing school which will be in .... approximately 4 months. I sort of made up a draft plan in my head:

I owe about $30,000 CDN in student loans. Long story short: my mom sent me to private Christian university when I first graduated high school and since it is "private", the tuition was $25,000 a year. I hated the school and ended up getting semi kicked out because I got caught drinking alcohol LOL! But, I estimate that if I don't spend a dime on shopping once I start working as a nurse then I should be able to pay it off in about 6 months (I estimate that as a new nurse I will make $60,000 a year) while still living at home (free rent and food).

Then once that is paid off (and I am debt free woohoo!), I plan on saving another $30,000 in the next 6 months. I'll still live at home which I don't mind because I am super close to my family and I get sad when I don't see them everyday. 

Once I have that $30,000 saved, then I will go and find my own apartment. My dream area would be in Coal Harbour but it is one of the most expensive areas to live in downtown Vancouver. SO... I will have to opt for the area around Vancouver General Hospital which is where I plan on working anyways. That way I can just walk to work! I am really picky about where I live and I would want a newer apartment with at least two bedrooms so that I could have an office/guest room. 

I have taken the time (aka wasted a lot of time) to plan out how my future living space will be on my Pinterest LOL. If you want to laugh at boards (or add me) then my username is Babydoll73 or you can add me (HERE)

While I live at my brand spankin new apartment, I'm also planning on having a breast augmentation and rhinoplasty. I already scheduled a consultation with Dr. Warren, who is the number 1 plastic surgeon here in Vancouver. He is so great, that his waiting list is a year and a half long. That's why I went ahead and booked a consultation because I could cancel it anytime that I want if I do change my mind! S-M-A-R-T. 

Then after another year, I might get a new car. I currently drive a piece of shit car that my dad gave me. Well, it isn't that shitty but it was his girlfriend's old car and she is a major wh*re (she talks smack about my mom all the time). I'm not sure what car I would get. My number one favorite car is a black Bentley with rims but unless I marry a millionaire there is no way I can have that car! I also really like BMWs and Mercedes sport cars but the other day as I was walking through this Asian mall in Richmond, I saw a Fiat on display. That car is actually PRETTY NICE!! And did you know they have Gucci Fiats? My boyfriend thinks they are pretty tacky LOL but I kind of want the black one! I am a MAJOR brand whore :P Plus, I don't think the car is that expensive. The regular Fiat is only about $13,000 so the Gucci one might be a little bit more. If I save right, then I could buy it in maybe 4 months!

But this is enough of me ranting about my future goals which will probably never get accomplished considering that it's a struggle everyday not to shop. I want everything! I should sleep now even though it's only 10pm because its my third 12 hour shift in a row tomorrow, and it will be a night shift UGH! So sleep deprived! xoxo

I would take some pictures of me with my new bag but I am extremely tired from my first day back at school and the gym. Only 4 more months until I graduate from my nursing program and become a real nurse!! :D

Louis Vuitton Logomania Scarf

I'm pretty set on buying another Louis Vuitton scarf for this fall/winter. Why another one you ask? Because I lent my mother my scarf last year and she LOST IT!! $375 CDN down the fricken drain! 

Logomania scarf in Blue
This is the scarf that I once had. I try not to think about it too much because it gives me high blood pressure. I love the color so I might buy it in blue again?

Logomania in Anthracite (L) and Verone (R)
Or I could go for a lighter scarf and choose of these colors. I think the Verone would be easiest to match BUT I already have a Louis Vuitton shawl in a similar color. No point in having two same colored things!!

Logomania in Anthracite
I don't own any dark colored scarves so this is a good option as well! 

HMMMMM... so what color should I end up choosing? Note to self: do not lend anything to my mom again or you will never see it again


I went to the post office again with my girlfriend (we got pulled into customs again btw... 3rd time in a row now) to pick up our wonderful online shopping!! 

Michael by Michael Kors leather jacket 
This was on sale online at Nordstrom

Simple cream colored Dolce Vita sandals
Again, on sale online on Nordstrom

Another pair of Dolce Vita sandals from Nordstrom
Won't these look so cute with a black summer dress??

Sam Edelman Zoe booties
These are similar to these Givenchy ones that I definitely can't afford
I found these on on sale for only $60 with free shipping!

My Kenzo sweater <3
I want to wear this with my black faux fur vest, black leggings, booties, and my black multicolore LV

I didn't order these but my boyfriend surprised me with Chanel jellies!! :D
They feel weird to walk in though

Items from the Plenty sale

We have a store here in Vancouver called Plenty. I used to rarely go into it but ever since I found a Mackage jacket for super cheap (click here to read post), I've been making more of an effort to have a look around. Omg, they have a lot of cute clothes that I like!! I've been missing out!! Today their sale section had an extra 25% off so I picked up a few items.

Light blue knit sweater for fall. I got this in a size medium because I wanted it baggy. 
$30 CDN

I already have a tank top that looks like this but this one is made out of cotton and much comfier! 
$18 CDN

Grey shirt with neon green stitching. I bought this because it was only $13 LOL

I REALLY wanted this floral blouse but they only had a size medium. I hate that feeling of wanting to buy something very specific and not being able to because it's sold out!! For example, today I tried bidding on a Balenciaga bag on Ebay that I really wanted and I ended up losing. Ugh. 

Then I came home today and my lovely mother bought me some goodies from Zara!!
The sandals were only $15 CDN. Not sure how much the floral pants are.


I love wearing hats! Sometimes I get too lazy to wash and do my hair (okay this happens quite frequently). I probably own around 7 different hats :P I think hats with a side braid are super cute and girly!

Hat - Chrome Hearts (BUY HERE)
Shirt - YSL (BUY HERE)
Shorts - Zara TRF pleather shorts (BUY HERE)
Sunglasses - Gucci Aviators that I stole from my bf lol

Some OOTDs

OMG... last week was a crazy week for me!! I had a final on Tuesday which I was freaking out about. I studied 3 days in a row for it, which was worth it because I think I did really well *fingers crossed*. I had another final and project due on Friday BUT... I went to the Jay Z/JT concert on Wednesday. I wasn't planning to drink but I ended up drinking and staying out till 4am. I woke up the next day feeling dead lol. My project was pretty much a nursing research paper which I despise. I'm just so glad my summer school semester is over. Now I have 2 weeks to study and review my nursing skills before I begin working at the hospital for my practicum. I got placed on the Oncology unit = I'm super excited!!

 I couldn't decide on what to wear to the Jay Z/JT concert. I've never been to a rap/hiphop concert before so I wasn't sure if I was supposed to go dressy, super casual, or both. I ended up wearing the denim shorts outfit which worked out fine because it got really hot! 

Tank top - Tobi
Shorts - 7 for all Mankind (BUY HERE)
Heels - Forever 21
Bag - Louis Vuitton
Watch - Michael Kors (BUY HERE)
Bracelet - Hermes (BUY HERE)
Ring - Forever 21 (BUY HERE)

The concert was amazing!!!! Me and my girlfriend were actually supposed to sit in the bleachers somewhere but we ran into my boyfriend's friends. They were sitting on the floor in front of the stage and had 2 extra tickets. So they gave it to us! Upgrade of a lifetime lol. 

This is an outfit I wore the other day to a family get together.
