145. (Sailor G~)





On certain days I have to wear pants. Not because I want to, but because of my job. You see sometimes my transcription jobs requires me to type whilst on the floor and as a result going on the floor is sometimes weird while wearing a skirt or dress. So I wore my hareems today, quite baggy pants. I love navy, and I decided to pair it with red and stripes for a nautical look. This whole look is quite baggy. Yes, I realise I do look "bigger than usual" on the outfits, but all I have to say to that is I am fat anyway, so I don't give a rats arse if anyone thinks it's "unflattering"... I'm fat, that's it. I'm not trying to hide it so here you go.

I love how it's spring weather now. Even though there's still snow on the ground as you can see, no more being bulky. I love it -- did I tell you guys how much I love it?



Anyway, that's about it. Off to make dinner now~!

144. (Not quite Spring yet.)


The sun was in my eyes.

I've been sporting my ASOS faux-leather bomber lately because the weather has been favourable lately. So here's a variation of an outfit I'm wearing recently to school.
Also! I'm showcasing my new glasses. You like? Hehe. It's totally not matching with the outfit, but these were the only glasses I had on me since I'm staying at my dads house for the weekend. It's a definite change of environment than where I live in the suburbs for sure... as you can see, it's more inner-city, so I think my outfit reflects that a bit.

Also, these ASOS ponti capris are too long for me at 5'5"... note that I actually had to fold the cuffs up so it actually are "capris" they look like black skinny trousers on me.



Anyway, we went to the cinema yesterday and some sashimi. Yum! One thing I do hate about going to the movies in my dads area (in the inner-city) is that every time I go the people are so damn inconsiderate and rude. I have nothing against people smoking marijuana or whatever, but if you go into the movie theatre HIGH and then screaming whilst watching the film and ruining it for everyone... like damn, have some class people! No wonder people from the North End of Winnipeg get such a bad rep. People in public act like hooligans... maybe it's because I live in a rather calm place in the city with no disruptions but I have to vent about that.

Although, It's nice to kick back a bit since all my term papers are done. Just exams now. But I'll be busier than ever the next 2 months. Summer sessions... eeep, and work on top of that!

143. (No Jacket Weather)




I'm pleased to announce that I'm finally not subjected to wear that (faux) fur jacket I wear constantly. Not that I have a problem but I'm itching to wear only a few layers and hopefully I'm able to wear my denim jacket anyway.
It's still farking cold here but I really wanted to wear my ASOS shorts so this is how I incorporated it. You guys don't know how happy I am to not wear boots or chunky stuff. Bring out the flats! I only wear boots because I'm scared of slipping while trying to run for my bus... haha. Now that the weather has been somewhat favourable I can start wearing what I like. Though as you can see, there's still snow. I'm just so happy... natural lighting! Outside! No more living room pictures! (For now.) Bliss.

Did you guys notice I cut my hair? Well only like an inch. I'm kind of ticked because I didn't do it on purpose, I asked for a trim of my dead ends (heat styling does that to you) and what do you know, an inch cut off. I guess I had an inch of dead hair. Oh wells. I'm so frustrated about my hair, I wish I could cut it but I have to remind myself to have diligence and patience.

Moving on to the clothes... I only have one thing to say about the ASOS curve shorts. I think they run big. They fall off of me, even with the belt done up all the way until there's no more holes.





Anyway, to conclude my entry, I must go back to doing my paper. However, I will leave you with some pictures I had of my dinner I had with boyfriend today...

142. (Mid-March Recent Purchases)

FIRST OF ALL, you may have noticed a layout change. Yes, I changed my layout all decked out in pastel for the spring. Second, I updated my blog-roll and my other pages on the top links. So do check it out.

I've been very bad in spending this time, ha! Well not really... okay maybe. Anyway, as school nears its end (for now) I decided to treat myself. I think a bit too much. I'm going to put myself on a shopping ban starting now. No, I did not spend all this at once. This is purchases from February to March.


ASOS
I couldn't help it with ASOS. I've been literally stalking the striped shorts and top since their arrival. I'm very happy with my products, especially the shorts!









Wholesale-Dress.net
With their cute, on-trend clothing at affordable prices, I consider these a steal. The backpack I believe was less than $10 and the dresses were less than $20 each. When ordering there are measurement charts. Again, people all have different experiences and I can proudly say I've had nothing but consistent and GOOD experiences with this company!








City Chic
When City Chic had their 60% off everything sale I couldn't resist. I was missing something: shorts. So I stocked up on those and two cardigans. :) Unfortunately the vintage/high waist shorts were sold out my size..













Forever 21
Forever 21 opened in Winnipeg so I had to check it out. They had the Forever 21+ size line and I ended up with these. I also bought the short leggings to put underneath my dresses, but no picture was available online.






HM
Jen from Jasiferlionsclub so nicely bought some stuff for me at HM! Thanks Jen! <3




Last but not least:

Clearly Contacts
I had to partake in the $38 sale. In retrospect I should've gotten the black glasses. Perhaps when I get them I will exchange for the black pair, seeing as my black glasses broke this morning.






Holy crap. It's only now I realised the extent of my buying, LOL. I still manage to pay the bills and not put myself in debt so it's all good. :)

141. (Glasses sale!)




Again I'm not paid to do this, but since I love the company so much and I know how much we all love deals... and glasses, today Clearly Contacts all glasses are $38. Maybe now is a good time to purchase those frames. Use the voucher code "GREEN" to get $5 off and free shipping on contact lenses, too.

Happy St. Patrick's day!

140.

Wanted to wear a dress today but I did not want to freeze at -30 C outside, no sir'ee. So I wore leggings today. A bit darker than what I wanted to, this outfit, especially at March, but whatever. I went out to lunch with my boyfriend then now I'm doing my papers and playing some Pokemon Black on my DS.





Blazer ASOS | Shirt Zara | Leggings Target | Boots Evans | Brooch Thrifted | Ring Forever 21 | Lipstick Dubonnet for MAC

I wanted to go to the opening of the new Forever 21 here in Winnipeg, it's apparently the biggest one in Canada (40,000 square feet) and it has I think most of the ranges, including the Forever 21+ range. I heard the lineups were insane so I didn't go, I'll probably go within this week with my boyfriend because I have no girl friends who like to shop. :( Or at least enable my hobby. So depressing. Any Winnipeggers want to go shopping with me? Lol. Yeah, I need more girl friends...

139. (March Wishlist)

It's another edition of "stuff I want to buy". Haha, here's some things that piqued my interest on wholesale-dress.net ...





I need a multifunctional backpack because the shoulder bag I bought from Forever 21 broke. Boo.







The cat shirt. :p

All pretty casual picks I think. I love the dress the most and will most likely be buying that, hehe. :D

138.

This is my going-to-thrift and I-wish-it-were-spring outfit. Went out to lunch with the boyfriend, went to Value Village... didn't find really anything. I did find one thing, though, it was a polkadotted shirt and I can't wait to feature it on this blog.





Shirt Old Navy, Thrifted | Cardigan American Apparel | Skirt & Belt ASOS | Tights Addition-Elle | Shoes Thrifted | Lipstick Maybelline Windsor Rose


As for today it's all about relaxing for the rest of the day I have. Besides going out, I've been studying, playing Pokemon Black (!!), and writing my "novel" haha. It's all in good fun though. Not much to say really, so here's my outfit post for today. :) I love this outfit... I wish it was bare-leg weather here in Winnipeg. Oh well.

137. (Winner)



I know it's a few days late but I want to announce The Merry Traveller as the winner of the IGIGI giveaway. The winner will have 48 hours to respond or else I will re-draw again. Thanks for all who participate and when I hit 400 followers I will have a special giveaway with clothes, food and more. Yay yay yays.

136. (Positively Neutral)


Ignore that spot, it's my camera, I forgot to clean it lol. and my shirt looks so wrinkly. -_- haha.

Happy weekend everyone! Here's a simple outfit I wore today... loving my neutral colours haha. Boyfriend stayed home so I got him to take a picture of me before I went off to school/work.



Top, Shoes and Cardigan Thrifted | Skirt ASOS | Tights Addition-Elle | Belt Lane Bryant


Weh, it's that time of year again... schools coming to an end in a few weeks, papers due and the scramble to find a summer job. Stressing over that big time; and not only that but for the program I want to study, I may have to transfer universities to get admitted to the graduate program I want to study in. It's a shame but it was bound to happen, I didn't think it'd be this soon that I have to transfer over! I don't want to go into it too much, but I'm kind of bummed is all. I love the University of Winnipeg - even if it's small, I really think I grew as a person in the past few years and I credit a lot of it to that fabulous university... the people, the energy and the professors make it such an awesome place. Haha, enough cheesiness. It's funny how things change! When I first went to UW I did not like the atmosphere at all, but now I'm just sad thinking about the possibility of leaving! I mean, my style has changed as well and will also be constantly changing. I love how my blog is an outlet for me to document myself, and I can read on how much I've changed.

On another note, boyfriend and I went to the mall. I bought some (more) stuff from Lush. I am an addict,  I say.

135.

I'm so happy! Done exams FINALLY. I've had a migraine all day and doing an exam while having a migraine is no happy feat. Well, I'm glad I'm done and now I can party all night. Just kidding, I don't do that kind of stuff. I'm boring. Haha.



Here's my outfit today. Colouring is weird because of the settings on my camera and I brightened stuff up just a bit because it was a tad too dark.



Tank top H&M | Blazer Thrifted, Dianne Von Furstenburg | Skirt CarmaKoma | Tights Simons | Shoes The Bay | Necklace ALDO

This blue velvet shirt blazer thing is one of my favourite purchases. It's so comfy, blue, and soft! Ah. I also remixed one of my older items, the Carmakoma Madonna skirt that Gabi from YFF sold me from her blog sale last year. Couldn't be happier.

On unhappier terms, another dent in the wallet. I had to take my pug to the vet (again) but she's alright.

Happy hump day! I'm gonna watch Top Chef season 8 now. :)

134. (Gaga for Glasses!)

It's no surprise I love glasses. I rely on them for my day-to-day use. I never ever use contact lenses because they irritate my eyes and I tend to lose things so no-go there. I love glasses because they make such a bold statement and it can be coordinated in outfits. I have 4 pairs of glasses I use on rotation at home and this does not include the glasses I have worn in my past years.

Anyway, here's some glasses that I really like on Clearly Contacts (I believe it is Coastal contacts in the USA). I can confidently say that I LOVE Clearly contacts. They always provide me consistent quality of glasses. (The glasses I'm wearing here are from Clearly Contacts/Coastal Contacts!) and they have epic sales too. I remember a few weeks ago they put all their glasses on sale for $33! ... that's right, ANY pair glasses were just $33. That's not all, but every once or twice a year they do giveaways in Canada, I think they give out 500 pairs of glasses in each city on select days. All you had to do was check out and enter a coupon code and you just paid for shipping. I got 2 glasses from those giveaways, but they go quick.











By the way I wasn't paid to do this, I just really love glasses and this company. Another good glasses company is Zenni Optical, great glasses for those on a budget.

So, do you wear glasses?
