It’s quite depressing to think that fall is just around the corner, especially considering that here in Toronto the summer has not even started. But what is exciting about the new season is new clothes! The other day, two pairs of ankle booties caught my eye at H&M. Both very simple, yet the zipper detailing on one and great fit of the other left me wanting new fall boots. And with my European vacation behind me, and NYC and Houston trips coming up, I am left on a pretty tight budget, so the shoes I buy must not only be cute, but also affordable! Above, I threw in a pic of the cool super high-heeled peep toe boots from Winners, and Forever21 boots below. Can you help me decide?
H&M is having a summer sale!
Judging from the looks of the few pictures released by H&M, the Fall/Winter 2010 Divided Collection looks very promising! Dark, edgy, and exaggerated…many of the high fashion runway looks were recreated and made wearable (or semi wearable). Studs, broad shoulders, sequins, leather accessories, leather jackets, leather leotards (!) – it’s all there! And it all looks ridiculously amazing!!!
Below are a few items that are now on my Fall/Winter wish list. I do hope that they show up in Toronto stores. Crossing my fingers till late August!
More after the jump!
Birthday in less than 1 week. Panic is starting to set in. Only 5 years till I’m 30!!! Time is a-running out, yet so many things on “the list” are left untouched and unfinished…Welcome to my yearly birthday freak out.
This year, I am getting much closer to the big 3-0 mark… This year should be worse. But this year is different. Different, because at this moment, actually feel very content. And feel like for the first time in a little while have time to actually live my life and be happy (stop and smell the tulips, lilacs, etc).
Got no complaints and no regrets. And to celebrate all this happiness, I will stuff myself into a Herve Leger inspired dress by H&M. Put an oversized Zara “boyfriend” blazer on. Wrap a hardcore-hardware belt around my waist and stick my feet into Zanotti-esque Balmain-ish Aldo shoes. Will dance till no longer am able to stand. Will drink Malibu and Pineapple juice (or Coronas). Will not think about the unaccomplished, but instead will celebrate the items crossed off my list. Like swimming with the dolphins, or visiting my best friend in Switzerland, or finally getting my Canadian Passport. Instead of dreading being “another year older, none wiser”, will seize the day and……..Oh, who am I kidding??? I am 1 Jello cup, 2 grey hairs and 5 back pains away from the nursing home! I hate birthdays!
I got these ridiculous-looking shoes at H&M a few weeks ago. They are green, purple, yellow…They are ridiculous and I love them! A while ago I wanted to buy 2 pairs of shoes, same type, different colors and wear them mixed/matched (ie. blue on one foot, pink on the other). I never could justify buying 2 pairs of the same shoes, even if they were different colors, thus I never brought this idea to life. With my new ridiculous H&M shoes, however, I think I’ll be able to achieve the same look without shelling out for 2 pairs.
And even though the collage of what I’m planning to wear in Paris doesn’t really show the actual shoes, the ones below capture the idea pretty well…alas not as ridiculously.
