Outfit: Winter Blues

Warming up in the cold with this baby blue boucle coat I bought during Forever 21's boxing day sale - it went on sale for 3 hours from $56 to $16!!! How great of a deal is that!? I wish they had it in pink because I would've bought it in that colour too. 

Don't forget I'll be hosting a giveaway with Palmers Canada in a week or so for a winter skin care package so stay tuned to enter! Hope you all have a great week!

Happy Valentines Day loves! Hope you're all having a great weekend (and a great long weekend to my Canadian readers). Here goes another hits + misses post! Today I wanted to discuss some of the new products I was using throughout December - January - if you tried any of these, what were your thoughts on them?

Outfit: Shirt Dress + Thigh Highs

Regardless of the weather outside, I usually dislike wearing pants so I try to creatively think of outfits where I don't need to. I'll wear tights, leggings, skirts, thigh high or knee high boots and socks any day over pants with the exception of the occasional necessity of dress pants for work or my destroyed boyfriend jeans which are super comfy and casual. 
With thigh high boots and an oversized shirt dress, I can usually keep warm enough since the boots sort of serve as partial pants covering most of my legs ;)

Review, Swatch + Dupes: Rouge Louboutin

Hi all! I meant to write about this sooner but didn't have enough time to sit down and write at that moment so here's a late post - better late than never ;) August 1 of last year was the debut of the Rouge Louboutin nail polish in Canada's luxury retailer, Holt Renfrew - this is the first nail polish to be released by designer Christian Louboutin. I was so excited when I first heard he was releasing a nail polish and quickly rushed over after work to snag myself a bottle! 

The nail polish is enveloped in a dark and beautiful vial-like bottle, shaped of course, like his infamous sky-high heels. The debut colour of course was his signature red. When I saw it in person, I was even more in love with it!
