As a total sucker for beautiful packaging, when I saw these new Crescent Row fragrances from Benefit at my favorite makeup store, I wanted one. I love the front door idea! They smelled so great too, my favorite was the My place or yours Gina. So spicy and yummy!

I also picked up a NARS lip gloss in the famous shade "Orgasm"

If money were no object, I would be wearing Valentino Ever Bow tall boots on my feet this fall. That bow is killing me.

I felt like dedicating a post to how cute I think Chloé designer Hannah MacGibbon is.

This dress is stuck on my fashion-lust-list. It's one of those annoying things where I get a clothes crush on something I know is either overpriced, won't fit perfectly, and I won't wear often enough. I feel like this one could be all 3; It's too expensive, probably would be way too short, and if that is true I wouldn't wear it often.

Ok, that's justified. Now I need to try it on and put it to rest.

I had the nicest week with my boyfriend, we had so much fun. Sightseeing in my own city, eating delicious food, and taking a surprise shopping trip to Montréal. I showed a lot of spending restraint and only brought a couple things home with me; a flowy top from Urban Outfitters and delicious "duck-egg" blue flats from French Connection (my new favorite) I adore that city.

Today I spent far too much time looking through, the new and more budget friendly sister to net-a-porter. It offers a wide range of discounted designer labels, so whether it's Marc or Chloé you're after, you'll find them there at 50-70% off! Though still a major splurge, it's nice to know these beautiful clothes are a teeny tiny bit closer to my closet.

I love the gorgeous underwater photographs by Elena Kalis.
They're crystal clear and so refreshing to look at.

This week I'm in the mood for pretty belts. I'm kicking myself because I found the perfect one over one month ago at a vintage shop, it was the loveliest worn pink color, with a pretty gold flower shaped buckle...and I didn't buy it! Oh, how I kick myself sometimes...

The moral of this story is: when you see something unique and beautiful with a fair price attatched to it at a vintage shop, don't pass it up!
