Wardrobe Additions: November

Hello “TinyInTorontonians”!! (LOL) Here I am with the second month of “Wardrobe Additions”. For this month’s edition, I’m just going to share with you the pieces that I picked up from work (a.k.a. Topshop). Now when you see the number of items I have to share you’re going to be like, “Omg, you spend so much money. You’re crazy!!” – You know what? You’re probably right.

BUT – this month I won a $50 gift card and had accumulated enough reward points to get some of this stuff (like 3 items) FOR FREE. Yeah. Also, I get a pretty good discount (60% off) and some were also on sale. I just thought I’d defend myself a bit here, cause I definitely could never afford this much at full price. Sad, but true.

On to less depressing things! Here’s what I picked up from Topshop:

Yes, the first three items are VELVET. I think I’ve got enough velvet to last me the season now. I don’t want to get TOO carried away so I think these three pieces are just fine. I got two velvet dresses, one is a slip dress and the other a skater dress. I think the slip dress I could also get away with wearing in the Summer – that’s a bonus!  I also got a black velvet bat-winged sweater. I’m so excited about this piece (Trust me, I’m excited about all of them!!), but I really like how the velvet aspect of this sweater makes it easy to wear more formally. I could probably wear it with a fancy skirt and some statement earrings and be okay to go out to dinner! I love that. Next is this neutral-coloured blazer that’s very light and breezy. I got it on sale and I think it’s going to be a great piece to throw on top of my outfits all year round. The floral dress beside it in the pictures above is probably the dress I’ll be wearing around this time of year/holiday season. I could probably wear the velvet one as well, but I’m thinking this black floral print will be great to wear to a Christmas Mass or dinner, or something.

Finally, we have the camel crombie coat. Topshop comes out with a version of this coat every year, and I had *always* wanted one! I finally got around to getting it when it was half off on Black Friday. I think this coat will come in handy to wear over more formal attires, like dresses. Most of my coats are more casual, so I think this was a wise decision and definitely something that will benefit my wardrobe!

All of these items, like I said earlier, were purchased at Topshop. All mostly from the Petite section, but you can definitely find of few of these pieces in the regular line as well. I can’t wait to take outfit pictures with these pieces. I am way past due for an outfit post!! Hopefully I’ll have one for you guys next week *fingers crossed* (Low key already have plans for one ;)) hehe)

Thanks for reading, and I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Until next time,

Lovin’ Leopard Print 

Hey everyone! It’s been a really long time since I’ve shared photos of myself in an outfit. I admit, I feel a little rusty. That’s why I only have 3 mediocre photos for today’s post (heh, sorry!). On a brighter note, look at me! Two Fridays in a row now ha-ha! I don’t want to jinx anything but I think I’m getting my groove back! Yippee!!!

Today’s post is about a piece that I have been wanting to add to my wardrobe for the longest time. I just haven’t been able to justify the purchase. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a coat I may or may not even enjoy wearing all the time. I mean, wanting one for years was probably enough justification but I still didn’t want to drop alotta dolla dolla bills, y’know? I’m still working at Topshop and every year we come out with a leopard coat that is basically the same, just with a little modification (if you can call it that). For example, the latest one had a black collar lol. I bought the one from last year ON SALE, which was originally $180, but I got it for $50!! Can you say SCORE?!

Not only did I get this leopard baby for a steal but I actually am in love with it. I find myself wearing it a lot lately. I’m a little surprised because I thought it wouldn’t go with a lot because of how loud leopard print can be, especially in coat-form,  but it’s fitting with the rest of my wardrobe perfectly! I am one happy camper.

So what are your guys’ thoughts? Do you like leopard print? Do you like it in coat-form? Some people think of old women when it comes to wearing leopard coats. I personally think of Emma Roberts ;D (Go check her Instagram!)

Thank you all again for taking the time to read my blog. I appreciate it! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Until next time!

Oversized

I bought this oversized coat months ago and I have been wearing it everyday since! It never occurred to me that I should probably share it in a blog post because it immediately became a part of my everyday wardrobe. It is honestly the best coat I have ever owned and I love it very much! I especially love the lilac colour because not only can I wear in the winter, but I have a feeling it will be acceptable to wear in the early spring as well ;D

Hope you all like it! I also hope you’re all having a great holiday season, and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
