Wandering around Holt Renfrew is never a good thing – I mean, it’s good, but so bad cause you want everything – and the majority of it is severely over my budget. Alexander Wang‘s leather Brenda Zip Chain Bag, it was just under $800 CAD. The double nickel chain straps are so slick. With multiple pocket, the size is just right for all your essentials. The only issue, finding $800 to buy it! Sigh.
I’ve been eyeing this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag for a while. The version I spotted in Seattle a few months ago had a different plate, but the shape and style of the bag is pretty much the same. I almost bought the white version, but walked away cause I thought it’d be too high maintenance. This version at Aritzia (on sale for $225 CAD) is a really lovely cream colour. My friend almost coaxed me into buying it – but I had to walk away cause I’d already spent way too much that day. I still can’t get it out of my head though. It’s going to haunt me, I know it.
Every time I’m at the Aritzia at Pacific Centre, I pick-up this cropped silky patterned top from Donna Mizani. Regularly priced at $195 CAD and now at $140 CAD, I think the top from the 23-year old LA-based designer is gorgeous, but it’s still a bit steep for my pocketbook. I’ve said it before, I’m obsessed with cropped tops right now – this would look stellar with some skinny jeans and hot heels. Someone let me know if it goes down any further in price!
The big security tags must be there to make sure I don’t steal them! I spotted these L.A.M.B. heels at The Bay in downtown Vancouver. H.O.T. L.A.M.B. shoes always mean serious business. These babies were around $350 CAD. For those who are serious about shoes, you should head down to The Bay – wicked collection of shoes including Betsey Johnson, Rachel Roy, Hunter, Jessica Simpson.
