All systems go

Aren’t these oxfords amazing? I love the weaved gold leather and guess what? I got them at Vaule Village! They’re in near perfect condition and they’re exactly my size 9.5 AA (narrow). Crazy right? But it seems Vaule Village has invested more time into looking at shoes and clothes – noticing when things are probably worth a bit more then $10, because these bad boys were $26. I never thought I would spend $26 on shoes at the Village, but hey, sometimes quality calls.

Have a beautiful day,

The Breakwater

My mom and I ventured to the breakwater yesterday and these pictures are the result. It turned into a beautiful day, so we were able to get some excellent shots. I just love the wall in the first picture.
The Chelsea boots I’m wearing are Cole Haan and I got them at Ingledew’s in Hillside mall. Basically the store was crawling with little old ladies because who else can afford $250 shoes? I guess I can too because I bought them, but I was sick and tired of buying $80 boots that would wear out in 6 months.
So I guess what I’m saying is spend the extra money to get some decent boots, because you’ll probably wind up wearing them a lot.

Have a beautiful day,

‘Twas the night before Christmas

Christmas is tomorrow! I’m really excited to see my extended family; there will be 15 people at Christmas dinner… I can’t remember the last time we were all together.
I got this sweater at a Sidney thrift store last year and have been in love with it the whole time.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

RED

Forever 21 had its grand opening in Victoria today. It was epic. My friend Lauren and I got there at 9:40 and the line snaked all around the building. We only had to wait 30-40 min to get in, which was bearable. While waiting in line I saw the most badass old man ever. He was driving a shiny black motorcycle with a side car. A SIDE CAR! He also had a magnificent handlebar mustache. ‘Nuff said.
Anyways, once we got into the store it was quite the gong show, but boy was it worth it.

The ensemble I’m wearing in today’s post doesn’t contain anything from Forever 21, but just wait. Just wait.

Have a beautiful day,
Kate

Candy cane cheesecake

I went out for dinner last night and for dessert I had candy cane cheesecake! It was a delicious minty fresh explosion of awesomeness. I have resurrected my berry crown for this ensemble. The crown is literally just a berry wreath that I bought at Michael’s, then plopped on my head. Let’s be honest, flower crowns are too mainstream now. For realz.

Have a beautiful day,
Kate
