Recent Steals & Deals: Chapter 1

Recent Steals & Deals: Chapter 1

I’ve decided to start a new series on my blog (obviously called “Recent Steals & Deals”) to share with you guys what sales I’ve been shopping at. It may not be obvious at first but I’m quite the deal hunter and I love getting a bang for my buck!

This is Chapter 1 and I’ll be sharing all of the items that I’ve recently bought on sale for the Winter seasons. Let me know what you think of this new series in the comments section below!

Zara Sock Boots

I scored these babies for 60% off and got them for approximately $20.00CAD, what a steal right! I couldn’t pass them up; I must confess I have an obsession with shoes.

H&M Denim

Originally priced at $59.99USD I got this gorgeous pair of jeans in Hawaii for $20.00USD! They were the exact wash I was looking for and the rise fit great, the only problem was the length which I decided I would get hemmed.

H&M Embroidered Knit Sweater

I bought this ultra-cozy sweater at the same time as the jeans above and got it for the same price, $20.00USD instead of retail price $39.99USD! It’s the comfiest and chicest sweater I own; the cranes (I’m pretty sure they’re cranes) are just the right colours so it makes the sweater easy to put together with outfits.

Marc Fisher Xena Platform Sneakers

While I was in Hawaii I probably visited like 5 different Ross stores where you can get designer items for discounted prices. In one of the five I miraculously found this $13USD pair of Marc Fisher sneakers and I had to get them! They retail for about $70USD before taxes so the discount was great!

Zara Graphic Tees

Graphic tees are a huge trend in the fashion world right now and these ones were only $5CAD each! I got them at the huge Zara sale and they were priced at $9.99CAD each before the discount.

Know of any other good sales going on right now? Let me know in the comments below! I would also love to hear your thoughts about this new series on my blog so please feel free to send me an email through my Contact Page or just comment below.



What’s New in My Wardrobe

What’s New in My Wardrobe

With each new season a shopping spree arises…so here is what’s new in my wardrobe this Fall! I’m so happy that it’s officially Autumn because we were all kind of jumping on the warm and cozy fashion while we were still in summer, but now we can fully dive into it! Bring on the berets, scarves, boots, and pumpkin spice lattes!

Gucci Slim Belt

This is probably my most prized purchase of the season because I’ve been eyeing it for SO long. About half a year to be exact. I got it unexpectedly because it was the last one available in store in black (the most popular colour apparently) and they weren’t sure when it would be restocked. It felt a little like fate 😉 Of course the belt wasn’t my size, it was double my waist actually, so I had to have it altered but it only cost a small $35 to get it done and now it fits perfectly!


You can easily shop this belt at Holt Renfrew, Gucci, and Neiman Marcus but finding the right size might be a little tricky and they don’t restock often.

Gingham Print Boyfriend Blazer

The grey printed boyfriend blazers are a thing right now and I actually really like the look of them. It’s comfy, warm, and goes with a bunch of different outfits. You can shop similar styles at the links below.

Marc Fisher Leather Point Toe Mules

I scored these babies from Winners for only $38CAD! What a STEAL right?! I was absolutely amazed at how cheap they were considering these same styles are priced at $109-$159. Always keep an eye out at stores like Winners because you can find jewels amongst everything! Here is the same style that I purchased but in patent and suede.

Women’s Marc Fisher Ltd Hilda Pointy Toe Mule • $159.95 • Nordstrom

Black Parkhurst Beret

This is a MAJOR #tbt to when I used to wear these as a little girl in pink, purple, and sequins! This time around I’ve chosen a more subtle and easy to style colour, black, duh. I purchased this one from Hudson’s Bay for only $25 and will probably be getting a few more in different colours, possibly with embroidery, in the next little while. Shop the same style at these links below!
