Clothing and Shoe Haul: Favorite Buys for March 09




It was a gorgeous day today with the sun shining and the smell of spring in the air.  I woke up in a great mood and decided to take it easy today and accomplish only one or two things instead of the mad dash to get twenty things knocked off my 'to do forever from hell list'.  I wore my favorite new buys of the month which is a silky longer top that i purchased at one of my favorite stores in Toronto called Trove.  I paired the top with J Brand straight leg dark denim jeans and I also wore a new purse from Trove in cream, I adore it.  I walk into that store any chance I get without my children and I never walk out without a purchase.  I also wore my brand new girly patent leather and cork wedge shoes from Betsey Johnson, Betseyville.  They give me the lift that I prefer without compromising on comfort and I really adore the hearts in the front.  Yes, I did notice that I put the shoes on the table but they were brand new, just out the box and never worn.

I didn't have my husband or children today and I had no agenda.  It felt really good but weird at first.  I felt like I was doing something wrong or I was forgetting something.  Once in a while us moms need days like these to ourselves.  They are few and far between and we savor every minute because it reminds me that I'm still a woman and not just mamma or wife.

I love the wedge shoes & the purse. They will be perfect for the spring weather! I also wanted to say that you're so lucky to have the Estee Lauder employee discount thing! I can't believe your mom bought 2 things. Maybe she was just overwhelmed with everything, and didn't want buyers remorse if she overindulged ;)

Thanks Sonya! No, my mother wasn't overwhelmed she is just used to me supplying her with makeup its really not an ongoing thrill for her as it is for me. I used to work for one of the EL companies and I still get to go because my girlfriends still work there and give me their invites. I'm lucky, but I also have a mac procard so I get the discount all the time but just for mac not the other EL companies. :)

@lovepeaceandlipgloss,
Gina stop! I'm blushing, you're too kind and look who's talking :) This top is longer and on you because you are stunning and slim would make on kick ass dress above the knee, its lose and flowing with a nice pair of high heels and the accessories that you wear would be perfect. Thanks for the compliments.....xxNadia
