Short trip to the states

I drove a few hours to the states to pick up some packages at the post office and walk around the mall with my sister. I finally didn't get pulled into customs today LOL! My sister was so scared that she was gonna get blacklisted for being "associated" with me, cause you know I'm such a criminal for thinking that I could bring 6 diet pills across the border in my bag. ANYWAYS... I'm pretty happy with the items that I picked up at the post office! Only three things that I ordered a few weeks ago.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Nappa Mouse flats

I ordered these online because my Sam Edelman flats (the only flats that I own) broke!! I found these Marc Jacob ones on Ebay for only $100 CDN. They are pre-owned but have only been worn twice. They are in pretty much brand new condition and 100% authentic. Aren't they cute! I love bargain shopping. 

Brian Lichtenberg Homies Tee

I ordered this months ago but only got it now because it was backordered! It is from http://www.shopthetrendboutique.com. I actually follow their blog on Blogger so I read about all of the items that go on sale right away lol. I got this shirt on sale for 15 or 25% off (been too long so I can't remember)

Herve Leger looking dress from Ebay

OKAY... I am not a fan of buying "fakes" but spending $1000 on a dress that I will probably only wear once is not something that I can do right now. I will probably indulge in a real Herve Leger dress once I have a full time job, but for now I will have to resort to the lookalikes! This dress I found on Ebay for only $70 CDN. The material is thick and very form fitting. It is also really great quality! I'm wearing a small in the picture and I can barely breathe lol. The style of the dress is also very similar to a Herve Leger dress with a few minor differences, such as the bottom hemline. I will be wearing this to a wedding on Saturday.

After the post office, my sister and I drove a short distance to the mall in Bellingham to look around. My sister didn't end up buying anything but I bought 3 things from Forever 21 and perfume on sale from Target (I'm a shopaholic go figure).


I can't find the link to this jacket on the Forever21 website, but it's army green with pleather sleeves and details. Cost me only $50 USD. Will look so cute with leggings and rain boots! The only problem is that there is no hood, but it comes with a cute collar that can be folded up (see pic on the right)

Romantic Lace Skater Dress

I love this dress! I think it would be so cute with a Hermes Belt around the waist (guess I'll have to go buy myself one now hehe) and heels. I don't know when I'll be wearing this dress but it's always good to have something in case.

Life in Progress Overalls

I'm going to both the Drake and Kanye West/Kendrick Lamar concerts so I've been trying to think of outfits to wear. I bought these jean overalls and I'm thinking of wearing them with sneaker wedges, a cropped beater, and a hat. But who knows! It's not really my style lol 

Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana

The last thing that I purchased today! I owned this perfume years ago and absolutely loved it. I was so sad when I finished the bottle but never got around to buying another one. I found this one at Target today for 15% off so it came to $60 USD with tax, which isn't too bad! I usually buy all of my perfume from Sephora but I'm starting to think that it's a ripoff. For example, I bought the new Jimmy Choo perfume from Sephora for around $80 CDN. Yet I have already found the exact same perfume on sale at Winners, TJ Maxx, and Ross!! FML!

  1. Great finds! I agree, spending that amount on a dress that you will wear once is ridiculous. Even now there so many diff types of bandage bodycon dresses that the name doesn't even matter. I've always been skeptical of buying it from Ebay, because of the material, cheaply made etc but since you have it in hand and its done pretty well. Is it possible to send the link to the seller that you bought it from?
    Thank you in advance.

    1. Thanks! It's so cold now in Vancouver though so I haven't had a chance to wear it out more than twice :S I'll have to wait until Spring when it's warmer because I do not tolerate cold well lol
