NINETEEN/ monochrome addict

My mother and I recently took a trip down to Syracuse, New York, to do some serious shopping. If you live in Canada you know that shopping here sucks, even if you live in a big city like Montreal or Toronto. Everything up here is at least double the price as it is down in the States and we have about a quarter of the selection they have. It seems kind of stupid to me seeing how close we are, but that's just the way it is. Our stores even start carrying trends a lot later than they do south of our border. I, like most people right now, have been dying over the leather/pleather panel trend and I knew when I saw this allblackeverything paneled top in JCPenny that it had to come home with me. Now I know that JCPennney is definitely not the most glamourous store in the world but l really love some of their clothing! This shirt is incredible, not only does it have a pleather panel, but it has an exposed zipper in the back and the jersey material on the rest of the top is so forgiving. I feel like I'm going to be seen wearing this top a lot. Those booties were an amazing find too, they were only $22.99 and have a whopping five inch wedge. I feel like a giant when I wear them and I absolutely love it. My skirt was a great find too at Forever 21 (favourite store ever) for only $4 after discounts. I dare you to find a skirt in Ottawa for that price, even at a secondhand store it's next to impossible.

I bought a few other pieces on that trip that I'm just way too excited to blog about. These items include: a yellow cardigan (favourite colour), a pink top with rhinestones and ankle length black skinny jeans that fit like a glove.

  1. I love that top, suits you so well! I got almost a similar one from H&M 2 months ago and it is pretty much nice on me!

    Also, the skirt flatters your curves beautifully.

    2. They do sometimes! I found a lovely sheer blouse mixed in with the sale section one time. It was polka dot, it was plus size and it was MY size. It was like fate!
