Impatiently awaiting your arrival


I have a little confession to make: I dislike shopping. Now, don't panic. This doesn't mean that I hate shopping, it just means that I only like to shop under certain conditions.
1) Mall must be uncrowded. I hate shopping in crowded places. I usually shop in the mornings because the stores are usually tidier and much less crowded
2) Shopping Solo. If I actually go shopping with an objective in mind or to buy a particular item, I go alone. This might seem strange as alot of people shop with friends in order to get a second opinion, but I just prefer the piece and quiet of shopping by myself: taking my time if I need to or just popping into a store for a quick look.
3) No change rooms. I really dislike change rooms especially in the winter! I'm usually pretty good at guessing my size (In some stores I'm a 4 and some 6 and some a small and some a medium.... you get the point) and if a particular garment will look good on my body type.

All of this leads me to shopping online: You must be wary and really read the details of the items you are shopping for but you do get some good deals!

SO: I've been doing alot of eBay shopping and here are some of the items I've picked up.

Ruthie Davis Mary Janes.... I finally found them!

More Ruthie Davis! Patent Leather Booties. I got these babies for $150, I saw them online last year for $825
And la piece de resistance:

I've been wanting this baby for the past year but it's been sold out everywhere! I finally found it at the Saks Fifth Avenue website. I have to say this website is amazing especially for us Canadians. It changes your total to Canadian funds and also calculates your duties and taxes before you pay so that there are no suprises! I think this is a great feature and more websites should have this. This ring cost $195 and it came to $237 CDN with shipping and duties and taxes which isn't too bad in my opinion.

I've also purchased a lot of hosiery that I will do a post about. My orders have just arrived and I can't wait to wear them!

Be back soon

P.S. I am in the process of changing the layout of the blog so stay tuned!
