shopaholic is my middle name

Spent last Sunday indulging in my favourite pastime. Went downtown with my little sister and scored some really good deals:

This gold brocade pleated skirt at Club Monaco for only $19!

Black and white striped nautical blazer, also from Club Monaco, for $39

And this bright blue silk wrap dress from Banana Republic for my little sister
Below is a better picture of the dress, in orange (photos courtesy of Banana Republic).

I also stopped by French Connection, hoping to use up my store credit that I've had since last Christmas. Their spring collection was slowing trickling in, so I checked out the sales rack in the back. Found some really nice items, but nothing that really stood out. So, it looks like I'll be holding onto this store credit a while longer.

At first, I thought this was a dress when I pulled it off the sales rack. But when I tried it on, I realized it was a jumpsuit. I like the style and the structure of it, but the entire time I had it on, I couldn't help but think what a pain in the ass it would be if I had to go pee.

Doesn't look like much in the front and I wasn't crazy about the extra details around the shoulders...

but it looked awesome in the back!

I felt like a pilgrim in this dress. Or a Mormon bride.

Great shift dress and I liked the orange piping against the grey wool. But the minute I bent down in that dress... let's just say, you get quite the eyeful!
