Fashion Friday: Boots and Dora Edition

Last week I mentioned that I didn't have any new additions to my closet because I had gained weight.

But WAIT a minute, that didn't mean I couldn't go out and buy FOOTWEAR!!!

*****


I was reminded just a couple of days ago of one of the benefits of living in the burbs... big box discount shopping malls. Sure, it's certainly not the same experience as walking along Bloor Yorkville, Queen St. West, or Yonge & Eligible (three great shopping districts in Toronto). But one can still grab a Starbucks latte and stroll right on into STYLESENSE. This is a new shoes/bag/accessories emporium that has opened up two locations IN THE BURBS. Brought to us by the retailers who started Winners. Ads have popped up within the last week on the radio, in the paper, on TV.

Shoes?! Bags ?! Why, I just HAD to go to the grand opening which happened yesterday morning. And contrary to what I told my friend Bec that I wouldn't do, here is the evidence for you all to see.

My new BOOTS:

1/ Unlisted - too cute to resist and the price to match (let's just say under $40)...


2/ Tahari - classic boot, not too high, with tuxedo buttons. Salivated and purchased...


3/ Max Studio - not technically a boot, but a shoe/boot. Buckles and all, in a dark antique brown...


Now I also bought a new briefcase because I have work again. Thank God, because how else am I going to pay for all these new items?

(I won't mention my purchases at Lucky Brand Jeans either. My husband may be reading.)

Oh, and in case you were wondering where DORA comes in, this is what she will look like in thirty-odd years, complete with glasses due to the fact that she read too many maps as a kid ...


(yes, my new haircut!)

Happy Weekend everyone!

Loves IT!! the hair the sexy boots all of it! Shoes are my weakness I can go months without buying a stitch but heaven help me if I get anywhere near a shoe store.

Stylin'! I do love scrounging the stores for discount shoes. But sadly, I wear a 10N, so there are slim (haha) pickins...

bec said...

Sha-weeeeet!!! LOL I was lucky to see the "evidence" live and in person and those, ladies, are magnificent buys. Glad they did make the latest FF edition because they are so worthy! I don't recall mention of the Lucky Brand jeans purchases. Now you've got me curious...I won't tell Ian, promise :) LOL

The haircut is wonderful! I just love it.

Too cute, Karen! Love the 'do! Those boots are amazing! *sigh* I've got a terrible weakness for cute boots! Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be getting these fat pregnant feet into cute boots this Fall or Winter! LOL!

I'll take the jeans off your hands if hubby finds the price offensive!

Your hair looks awesome. And I like the frames, too.

April said...
