Wish granted!

Apparently I'm on a posting frenzy... and it definitely feels like I haven't posted in forever-- although I did this morning!

Just wanted to let you know that I finally managed to order a pair of ankle/chelsea boots of the internet (specifically, asos.com). Ahh! I didn't think I'd ever spend this much money on shoes again after going through a phase where I wanted to spend max of $30 dollars on ANYTHING. But... here they are... (photo from asos.com)

Now I have to wait for them to come in! Ahhh, December 14th, come faster! 
Also, I REALLY want the AF-S Nikkor DX 35 mm f/1.8 lens for my Nikon D5100. Photo from Nikon Canada!

Mulberry look-a-like!

It's been an absolutely amazing experience thus far, running a blog and all. I would've never even thought that people would actually read this thing, or even like my sense of fashion for that matter. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that both Kurtis and I are very grateful for everyone's support! We wouldn't be blogging if not for you!

Anyway, aside from all the sappy stuff, I am excited to say that I have finally received my ASOS package. I swear the only reason why I spend so much money online is because every time a package arrives, it feels like Christmas.

Also, I bought two bags today from Red Pony consignment on Whyte Avenue yesterday. I went to pick up some clothing I originally consigned but didn't sell, and ended up spending money (as per usual). Regardless, I'm pretty happy about the purchases! The items at Red Pony aren't exactly as cheap as Good Will or Value Village, but I have to say, the quality is a lot better!

PS: I only bought one of the bags because it reminded me so much of my beloved Mulberry bags. The day I get one... I'll feel like gold!
PPS: You have ONE MORE DAY to enter the giveaway! So make sure you do! Winner announced on December 1st. Click here to enter.

VILA WHITE SHEER DRESS FROM ASOS.COM ($14)
LEOPARD PRINT SCARF FROM ASOS.COM ($14)
URBAN EXPRESSIONS BRIGHT GREET HANDBAG FROM RED PONY ($36)
**I kind of guessed the prices of the ASOS products.

PPPS: Also, I need your help! I'm thinking of buying some studs on etsy.com and perhaps adding them to the bottom of my mulberry look-a-like bag. What do you guys think? Should I give it a go on the smaller vintage purse as well? Oh, the decisions one must make...

Blogging is the new Facebook

Since I've deactivated Facebook, I find I've been spending more and more time writing blog posts. I'm not sure if that's an entirely good thing, but oh well. It's somewhat productive at least.
Anyway, I'm not sure if you have noticed, but I get really bored with layouts quite fast (I'm not sure if Kurtis feels the same!). This means that this blog might be going under a few makeovers. Recently, I've been thinking of changing the banner. But I'm not quite sure if I should, or what I should change it to. Any ideas? I'd love to hear them!
Also, here's an outfit for you all! It's a rather simple one, I must say.

PS: I'm still waiting on an ASOS package I ordered two weeks ago. They were supposed to come in on the 24th, and I've already e-mailed Asos...but in return, I got a computer-generated message. Fantastic, hey? Anyway, I sure do hope it comes in soon. I'm so impatient!

PPS: One of my recent blog posts has been published on the online fashion magazine, Stylezza! This is so cool! Check it out here.

Which one doesn't belong?

It's pretty much common sense by now to know that I have a very daunting obsession with shoes. I love all kinds of shoes, and as of presently, I've really been into black and white shoes (especially chelsea boots).

Clothing-wise, I've been really loving the knit trend, as well as fantastic patterns/prints that can be mis-matched. Also, if I had earrings, I'd probably buy a whole bunch of earrings like the ones shown below. And one more thing, I need more velvet and detachable collars in my wardrobe.

Walking On A Dream


Can you believe it is almost December? Who knew University flew by so fast. Well to mark the remaining days of November, here is a look for you guys. If you ever decide to move to Edmonton for some crazy reason, bring a lot of wool sweaters and pictures of grass cause you might forget what it looks like. Enjoy!



























































There's Christmas Music playing already

I've neglected my outfit photos for a bit. So here.

Also, I'm so excited for Christmas! It really is the best feeling when exams are over and you can finally look forward to getting together with friends and family. And good luck to everyone that is in school! I hope finals treat everyone well!

Just a small update

I went to the Royal Bison Craft Show today with a bunch of friends and just bought a whole bucketload of knit products from Crow's Nest Knits! I'm absolutely in love with everything! Pictures will come soon enough! Meanwhile, the picture below is from the Crow's Nest Knits Facebook page. I was too lazy to make a new post dedicated to what I bought, so I'm adding the pictures below! I've also included a crop top I bought from Urban Outfitters on Friday.

Also, I've isolated myself from the world of social networking by deactivating my Facebook account (twitter is still alive, though!). Finals are in less than three weeks, and it's scary to just think about all the work I have left to do!
Time to get crackin'.
I sound like a broken record player... but also don't forget to enter the Mont Affair giveaway! Click here.

Happy Black Friday!

Hi guys! Just wanted to do a quick post!
Two things: (1) ClubCouture is having a 30% Black Friday Storewide sale! This is a great opportunity to cash in on some great clothing for even better prices! Just use the following code to access the 30% discount:
BLACKF11
(2) I'm especially excited to collaborate with Mexy, an absolutely ADORABLE clothing store from Taiwan. What I particularly really like about Mexy (aside from the clothing, of course!) is the very affordable shipping. Mexy offers a $4 flat rate Worldwide shipping, as well as free shipping on orders over $50. It's absolutely fantastic!
Also, check out their new WINTER COLLECTION here (or like their Facebook page here). And don't forget to enter our Mont Affair giveaway here.
The following images are from Mexy.
Have a great Friday! 

Tumblr favorites is back!

You know that I-really-really-really-want-to-go-shopping feeling? Well yeah, that's what I'm feeling. I don't quite know what has gotten into me. Maybe it's the fact that Black Friday is coming up and I'm getting all these e-mails from stores to go check out their sales. Or maybe it's because I'm just crazy.
Also, I'm ALMOST done all my really ridiculously exhausting Inorganic Chemistry labs. Thank goodness.
Now all I have to do is finish my paper...

The following photos are all found on Tumblr.




Backpackers

Winter is here. The only thing I like about winter is nothing. I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, but I still have not made peace with our -30 degree Celsius weather. When I move to another city I will probably miss this place but for now, I am allowed to complain about it. To ease the pain, recently both Alyssa and I have reached some milestones. First I would like to congratulate Alyssa for reaching 1000 fans on Lookbook! That is an amazing feat and I can assure you, she is very grateful for every hype and fan she receives. Likewise, I have reached 200 fans on Lookbook and cannot thank everyone enough for fanning and hyping my looks. I sincerely appreciate it. On another note, our blog "The Ordinary Peoples" has reached over 160 followers and has over 9000 views! Alyssa and I are amazed that people actually like our stuff and once again we must give thanks. To round this post off, here is my most recent look. You can check out where I got the clothing from on Lookbook.




A piece of string

This will be a relatively short post. I have a paper due for my Global Warming class (if you're wondering, it's a woooonderful class) on Friday and it's worth an astounding 20% of my grade. Fantastic hey? I also have work to do for my Inorganic Chemistry lab tomorrow. Goodness... so before I get to work, here are some photos!
Also, check out Club Couture and Causeway Mall while you're here!
PS: You still have time to sign up for my GIVEAWAY with Mont Affair! Click here.
PPS: I think I wear these boots everywhere.
PPPS: If you're in the Edmonton area, don't forget to check out the 11th Royal Bison Craft and Art Fair!
