It's my birthday!
Damn right I'll cry if I want to. I went out to breakfast at Cora's with my parents this morning to celebrate and then bought my much desired pair of comfy moccasins as a present. Yesterday I went on a shopping trip to Toronto with my best friend and ended up striking a few things of my perma-wishlist of essentials.
1. A black croc bag. Everywhere I turn, there's brown croc bags, white croc bags, vomit-green croc bags but never any classic black ones. Where there is a black one to be found, it often resembles a particularly plastic-looking trash bag. I found the perfect black croc bag at one of those knockoff stands in the mall, and just happens to be a fake Kelly bag - the epitome of class, no?
2. Skinny black pants. I was looking for black pants in general, but these skinnies from H+M were quite flattering and beatnik-reminiscent.
3. A winter coat. Ta-dah! Miss Couture had suggested Zara as a place to find cute winter coats, and she was totally right. I found an emerald green pea coat with a stand-up collar for $80, and it looks incredibly luxe when paired with my new "Kelly" bag.
My $100 Chapters giftcard was spent so quickly! In just 2 trips to the store, I ended up blowing it all on:
2 books chronicling the history of punk
A book on Yves St. Laurent
A book on Existentialism and
An Edward Gorey Calendar
