Zara, oh how I missed you.

Since my own wedding is finally over, the house renovations, and the master’s degree obtained, I can return to my old shopping habits.  Ah freedom.  Freedom to rest, freedom to shop and freedom (and time) to put outfits together.

I’m heading to a wedding next weekend and I saw this knot back dress by Zara and had to have it.  In Canada, it cost about $79.95 CAD and I wanted to accessorize this dress with something funky and lo and behold, within seconds, I found the Chain, Cord and Stone Necklace at Zara for $39.95 CAD.  Lucky me!

I couldn’t help but visit the Zara site to see if any new items were coming out and as soon as I saw the Bird Print dress, I leaped out of my chair, lamenting that I had just spent money on a huge grocery run!  My husband is reeling in my spending habits so I have to be more selective.  Which one would you have chosen?  The back knot dress with the necklace or the bird print dress?

Falling off the wagon…

Oh sigh! How I wished I was able to contain myself and not buy anything this weekend but I relapsed and went on a mini spending spree. I’m frustrated and disappointed with myself. My friend was right, working downtown does not help! I managed to find three pieces I really liked:

Ecote Suede Shoes via Urban Outfitters:

Warning to those interested in the shoe, there are no half sizes, if you are a 7-1/2 like me, I would recommend an 8 instead of a 7.  I had my shopping goggles on and when you do, you tend to feel or think the smaller size fits just fine in the store.  When I got home, the shoes was tight in the front.

Pink Pleated Dress from Zara:

I saw this lovely dress after work one day and just had to have it.  It’s a cute dress but could be overkill if I wear a headband with a bow.  I bought a size S and it fits pretty well, it’s not too tight or loose.  I’m most likely going to wear this dress with a cardigan and my mary janes.

In addition to these pieces, I also found a lovely mustard top (one size) at Durumi.  Unfortunately the store does not have images but I’ll be posting a picture of me in the top soon!
