Christmas Joy

Sorry I haven't posted in a while I have been so busy with my new job and old job I have barely had time to sleep. That means I just did laundry for the first time in 3 weeks! Expect outfit posts to come this week. Until then I hope everyone is having an amazing holiday season, I know I am!

I was saying before that I have realized there are a few holes in my wardrobe. Items that I really should have, classic basics, but don't. So many times I am getting ready and think, I really need a white mens button up for this outfit, or a little leather bomber would totally make this look perfect. Here is a list of the things I need to fill most of my holes.

Ton-Ton Vest

I wanted a faux fur vest all season but couldn't really find one that I loved and was also in my price range. I have made a promise to myself to not buy anything I don't LOVE and that doesn't go with at least five things that I already own. It has been a really helpful way to not spend money on things I don't actually want or will use. It has also cause me to realize I have a bunch of gaps in my wardrobe. Can you believe I don't own a LBD? My friend Jen says it is because I am not a little black dress person. She is probably right as I own a ton of dresses, all in bright colours or fun patterns. But I do feel that something you should own.

Anyways I finally found the faux fur vest for me. I thought do I love it? Heck yes! Will it go with five things I already own? More than five for sure! So I bought it, and it was even on sale. Bonus!

Vest: Piko1988, True Value Vintage, $50
Dress: H&M, $19
Tights: Hue, $15
Boots: Aldo, $50
Cuff: Value Village, $2
Watch: Yardsale, $1

Now I am on the hunt for my perfect LBD. Any hints?

Job Well Done

Big news in the "Girl" world! I got a new job! I am officially the Menswear Specialist for Le Chateau at the Pacific Centre location. I am very excited to start a new job in the field I just graduated school from. Last time when I graduated make-up school it took me a very long time to find a job even close to my schooling. I wanted to work doing something with make-up so bad but knew no one in the city, had no connection or real experience getting a "real" job. This time I started looking even before I finished school. I put out the feelers, and let everyone I know, know that I was looking for work and anyone who may know anything about clothes and fashion the heads up that I was looking for work. Bam, it worked.

It was a three interview process, here is what I wore to the final interview/signing of papers for the job:

Leather Jacket: Joe Fresh, $40
Shrunken Tux: H&M, $30
Pants: H&M, $25
Tank: Sears, $12
Shoes: Aldo, $30
Scarf: Sears, $20
Purse: Winners, $20
Necklace: Vintage, Retro Rock Vintage, $9
Cuff: Value Village, $2
Watch: Yard Sale, $1
