Yes, I saved $160 and bought myself Jeffrey Campbell "Lita"s in black leather. I have been drooling over these shoes ever since I watched a fashion video by Clothesencounters on YT back in March. I bit the bullet and finally went and bought them online mid-September. I patiently waited but they finally arrived the first week of October which was really fast!!! I think in the future I may buy a pair in red suede, and cream suede. There are so many colours/styles on I ended up buying my pair from because they offered free shipping to Canada <3 However, does not have all the style/colour choices that Solestruck has FYI.

I have already wore them twice outside and they are quite comfortable for platforms. They also stay true to size. I bought mine in a size 8 and luckily they fit perfectly. I was worried they were going to be snug with socks on but they fit quite comfortably enough that I think if I bought an 8 1/2 they would fit too big!
isn't that kind of  sad?

                                     Well I guess you have to see for yourselves <3

                                                 LOVE THESE SHOES <3

OOTD: The office casual

definitely grumpy.

Brown Knit Shrug-George (Wal-Mart)
Purple long tank-Stitches
Black cotton high-waist skirt- Fairweather
Brown leather belt- my bf's old belt
Black real leather kitten heels-The Bay
Burgundy faux leather bomber jacket-Urban Planet

I am such a grumps! lol This is what I wore to my Uncle's office the other day when I visited! It was early in the morning (7:00am) when I took these pictures so please excuse the lack of expression on my face: I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON AT ALL!!! >.< Nonetheless, I wanted to share my casual office attire.I like to call this outfit "office casual" because it's casual but at the same time looks professional. I also tried to avoid wearing all black pieces because my Uncle's business partner always comments on how I never wear colour (which is colours are my staples). I always like to dress up when I visit my Uncle's office, because I hardly ever have situations where I need to dress up all professional-like. Plus, when I go to his office I get to do office errands such as filing , faxing, mailing, etc, so I need to look the part all the times, especially since it's an insurance business he deals with.
I also did a simple make-up look, and the pictures are below! Overall, I had a lovely day at the office as usual which ended with a delightful lunch at a nice Italian restaurant. How fitting! :) My uncle has asked me to visit him every 2-3 weeks for now on to catch up, which I would love to do. I really hope we can keep these arrangements up because I love visiting him and my aunt! They are truly special to me <3

Blue smoky eye make-up-Revlon pallette
Natural bronzer-Rimmel
"Blushing Natural CheekColour"- Estee Lauder
Usual/essential skin care stuff
"Champagne Mauve"-Avon lipstick
Gold hoop earring with purple stones-Avon
Real gold necklace & cross pendant (Canvassed texture)
Real gold bangle bracelet (Portuguese gold yeye ;D)
Real white and yellow gold ring 

I really should have done close-up shots of the accessories...^^;

Pin Up Gal

I have always loved the pin up look so when MissJessicaHarlow on Youtube announced her giveaway "I'm a Pin Up Girl!", I had to do it! Pretty much, she asked the contestants to make a video response explaining "what makes you confident", while being dressed and done up as a pin up girl. My answer: I feel most confident when I believe and have faith in myself and/or what I am doing!
I mixed some of her makeup tips, with my own creativity to create my own pin up look and I think I did a really good job ;D I definitely felt very confident being made up the way I was. It took awhile to do the hair and the makeup but it all came together in the end. Here are some pictures I took of myself:

My fave picture from the "set"

I had a lot of fun taking these photos! I really felt like I fit the part of a pin up chick.  Although, I wish the camera that I used captured my natural blue eyes better :(

HAIR: I used hot rollers and rolled them inwards (20 mins).
            Added bobby pins
FACE: Elysee moisturizer
            MicaBella Mineral powder foundation
            QUO concealer
            Avon "swoon" pink blush.
EYES: Avon "romantic mauves quad" eyeshadow(pink slip & mauved)
           Faces eye highlighter
           Fake eyelashes
           Avon SuperSHOCK MAX mascara
           Almay brow defining pencil (brunette) (used for fake mole near eye and brows lol)
           Avon Daring Definition Gel eyeliner (black)
LIPS: Avon Glazewear "Real Red"
           Cherry Red lip liner
DRESS: Goodwill

I would definitely rock this look somewhere classy and fun ! Maybe to a party or a club :) Too bad  I had no where to go when I did all this. Being sick also didn't help! I'm recovering now, slowly but surely...

Hope you all like my pin-up look!
