AE, H&M Socks
Nomi boots


Recently, I've rekindled my love for socks. The ones above are the ones I've picked up a few days ago and I loooove them. Tell me you love the tribal print high knees? I was never all that fond of socks a few months back but how can I even resist when it comes in all different colours, style, shape and marterial. Socks craze. Just a tad bit. I'm having such a hard time deciding on whether or not I should keep these boots. I've had such a hard time finding ones that fit properly and that I liked. But I guess these will do? Whatever, I'll just cross my fingers in hopes that it'll keep me alive through this cold winter.


On another note.... a few things I want to cover:
1. I was on a shopping ban but it lasted... a day.
2. Blogging > essay writing.
3. My favourite colour right now is red.
4. Starbucks is a must everyday... Maybe not everyday but I need dose of caffeine.
5. Obbessed with obnoxious jewellry.
6. Currently trying to sell my Blackberry Torch, anyone?
7. Excited to meet fellow Torontarian bloggers Alan and Danielle.


P.S I apologize for lacking outfit posts. Once I get re-energized and catch up some sleep I'll post something :).

Dries Van Noten

Now playing: ♫ Deadmau5 ft. Kaskade - I Remember


It's already November and winter is right around the corner as temperatures close to hitting zero degrees. Be sure to have some key basic items to survive this bumpy winter season. Whether it is knits, leather pants, scarves, tall riding boots, capes whatever it may be - bundle up Eastcoast!



Dries Van Noten - F/W 2010



I stumbled upon some of Dries Van Noton's work of art. His collection embraces both of menswear tailoring and military inspiration but still maintains the feminine presence. There is something about this collection that is so eye catching, I absolutely love the androgynous appeal it partakes. With the resemblance of earthy tone colours - it screams out autumn especially the myrtle green I cannot resist.

Lanvin

The word has been spread and the talk has not been stopped. Lanvin and H&M are both collaborating together.



Fashion show - Lanvin for H&M


I have to admit that I am mildly impressed with the collection - that is probably because I was expecting more than anticipated. The collaboration with H&M from last year was Jimmy Choo's - there was definitely more hype than this year's collab. Despite of all that, I cannot wait until these garments hit store so I can get my hands on that yellow ruffle dress that I've been eying on for quite some time now.

Launch date: November 20th 2010

To purchase Lanvin for H&M garments, they are sold exclusively only at these three locations in Toronto:
1. Toronto Eaton Center
2.15 Bloor Street West
3.Yorkdale Mall

For other information, inquiries or store locations, visit www.hm.com

Be quick because I am definite sure that these items will be sold out in a heart beat.
(...and don't call my store asking if we have it. Just kidding. Kinda.)

McQueen lives on

Alexander McQueen, F/W 2010 looks.


McQueen, Something I cannot afford under my own pocket but it's so nice just to look at them... through the computer moniter. Knowing that I can't effort buy them? What a slap in the face.

Aside from that, I apologize sincerely to all my friends and readers that I have not consistently updated my blog just because I've been bombarded with school and exams coming up it's been a tad crazy. Life as a student. I have been mainly hiding away at school, work and starbucks only to force myself to study in coffee shops. On top of that, I have not been shopping all that much the past two weeks and I am in desperate need of winter clothing. But I am hoping to get back on track and keep you all posted! Enjoy the rest of the weekend lovelies!
