Weekend Wishes...


Another week has come and gone, and I for one am pumped it's finally over... Not that I'm getting much of a weekend— I'll be working the whole time, as well as reporting on Western Canada Fashion Week... And I don't even want to think about the piles of homework I have waiting for me when I get home! *sigh*

Hope your guys' weekends are a lot more fun/relaxing  than mine! xx

The Gossip Girl...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

What do you think of when you look at this coat? Do images of Serena and Blair kicking it on the upper east side come to mind? Well they certainly do for me, and I'm guessing that they do for Sheinside, because they named it the Gossip Girl Double Button Coat. Coincidence? I think not.

I was so excited when it arrived in the mail last week, because not only was it a perfect fit, but the style was exactly what was missing from my life... It's just the right amount of preppy meets nautical, am I right?

And as if that weren't enough, Sheinside offered to give you guys 20% off any order from now until May 30 when you use the promo code "vickie20" at checkout! Not too shabby, huh? Thanks, Sheinside! xx

Wardrobe Wednesday...


Last week I had this crazy idea to throw on all my favourite rings for a photo and, well, now you're looking at it... Can you tell that I like oversized rings? I don't know if it was all the extra weight or the fact that it was freezing out, but my fingers were seriously stiff afterward... But it was totally worth it.

What's your favourite accessory? xx

The Flashy Girl from Flushing...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Is it me, or does this dress look like it was cut from my grandma's curtains? Or better yet, like it was borrowed from Fran Drescher during her stint on The Nanny? Either way, I'm totally cool with it... After all, I'm practically an 80-year-old woman at heart (ask my friends!), and I'm always down for cheesy 90's sitcoms, so it's pretty much a win-win... And did I mention that it only cost $10? "Get out of here!"*

*If this reference is lost on you, youtube The Nanny immediately... Go on, I'll wait.

Blue Meets World...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

You know when you see something and are instantly drawn to it, only you have no idea how to incorporate it into your wardrobe? Well that's what happened when I bought this skirt. It was bright, fun and super cheap (thank you, Forever 21!), but I couldn't for the life of me picture what to wear with it. I can typically picture a couple different looks when I'm shopping, and based on what I already have, I pick new pieces that will function with the rest... Well let me tell you, this was not one of those times. So after countless failed attempts, I gave up on greatness and settled for a simple t-shirt-and-polka-dot-tights combo. What do ya do.

Happy Monday, lovelies! xx

(Un)Easy Rider...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Recognize this skirt? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say no... That's because it typically doesn't get a lot of play, what with its ever-rising slip that leaves me feeling oh-so exposed. Not fun. Regardless, I decided to give it another chance because hey, that's the kind of girl I am... The result? Let's just say you probably won't be seeing this skirt again for a long, long time.

Happy Friday, friendlies! xx

Business in the Front, Party in the Back...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Warning! Warning! The mullet is back and it's making its way to a hemline near you... But fret not my friends, mullet clothing sounds more "Fubar" than it actually is. I for one plan on getting my fill of the trend over the next few months... And with super cheap-n-chic options to choose from, there's no reason not to jump on the bandwagon too! So grab an asymmetrical top, dress, or whatever you can get your hands on and repeat after me: it's mullet time!

Wardrobe Wednesday...

Sometimes you know you need to have something the moment you see it... And when it came to this tiger print cross body, it was love at first sight... Or should I say stripe? 

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! Stay tuned to see the rest of this outfit tomorrow... xx

Mass-ive Attack...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Writing the outfit details for this post made me realize that I should probably diversify my shopping spots a bit... Can you say predictable? If my ensembles don't hail from the "holy trinity"of shopping — aka mass retail giants H&M, Forever 21 or Zara — you can bet they come from my employer, Mr. Michael Kors... Not exactly original. Have I stumbled into some kind of sartorial rut? Probably... But at least acceptance is the first step to recovery, right?

Writing on the Wall...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Never one to resist a good graffiti wall, I was pumped to snap these pics last week with Kastles during a coffee date. Now I don't know what it is, but every time I see a bright, inked-out wall my heart just goes pitter patter. Maybe I'm just more "street" than I realize... Word.

It's Friday, Friday....


It's been a looooong week, but now we can all put our feet up and have a little fun this weekend... I for one am planning a river valley walk, a movie night double-date with Kassie (complete with these!) and maybe even a green beer or two... Happy Friday, lovelies! xx

Silence of the Lamps...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

No, this isn't some creepy post where I wear someone else's skin just for funsies — Come on, I said lamps, not lambs, people! Anyway, my friend Cheryl and I stumbled on these plastic lamp installations the other day, and I pretty much forced her to take pictures for me right then and there... What a pal!

We had tons of fun goofing around (one of us may or may not have straddled a lamp), and I was super pumped to wear these loafers outdoors again now that the snow has pretty much melted... Because hey, it's the simple things in life, right? xx

Wardrobe Wednesday...


This week I decided to shake things up and do something a little different for Wardrobe Wednesday... Now I love a good 'what's in my bag' post as much as the next girl, so I figured why not just give you a peek into my Red Velvet clutch? So without further ado, here's what's hiding in my little clutch!

1. Michael Kors wallet
2. My trusty iPhone
3. Covergirl's "Hot Passion" lipstick (my fave!)
4. Covergirl's "Spellbound" lipstick
5. Joe Fresh lip gloss in "Lychee"
6. My Hello Kitty bang comb compact
7. Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer
8. Bath and Body Works Rio hand cream
9. Juicy Fruit Desserts gum (so good!)
10. Michael Kors "Cheshire" sunglasses

And that's it! There, now there are no secrets between us... Happy Wednesday, my loves! xx

As some of you may have noticed, I'm a tad obsessed with Instagram... So much so that it's gotten to the point where I can't eat food until I've snapped a photo first, and I find myself incessantly checking my feed every half hour on the dot. From outfits and accessories, to coffee and meals, anything is fair game in my little insta-world...  Don't judge.

Spring Fling...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

There's just something about throwing on a bright, "check out my bad self" kind of outfit to pick yourself up on a on a blah day... And in my case, I spared no expense in achieved said brightness. From florals and a neon necklace, all the way to my burn-your-retinas bright dress, this outfit is anything but boring... After all, nobody likes a blah-ger.

Happy Monday, lovelies! xx
