What a few pesos will buy you…

I haven’t had the ambition or motivation to shop as of late. Mind you my summer travels have been quite limited (hence the lack of ‘making it rain’). But nonetheless things seem to make their way to my closet, so here’s a bi-polar purchase haul:

Club Monaco trench coat.. so in lust with this.

Bull snapback (buy here) / Raiders snapback gifted by Cheebz from my favorite Vegas store, CRSVR. I ran into the owner in the Cosmo lobby (I stalk him on twitter) and said hi, it was my only celeb moment of the trip (me being the celeb of course).

Baby bulls jersey x baby jordans, baby things are so cute! (buy here)/ dress I picked up in LA. Its tight, very unforgiving..so me. (I found two different colored versions here, and here)

Wilfred shorts gifted to me by my maja (buy here)

Cheebz hooked this ladyboy up with some lip crack. I can’t remember the colors (coral & fuschia) but lets just say you wouldn’t have trouble finding my lips in the dark.. fiyaaah! And a more appropriate scarf to wear for my chola steeze.

This shopping/gifted haul kind of looks like what a cross dresser would get into.. ladyboy steeze! It’s been a hectic week, check back in a few, i’ll be sure to have some dolla dolla boys eye candy for you. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, i really love you for being here. Seriously, am I not the luckiest person alive ever or what!!? love you pumpkin pie xo.

Do ya chains hang low?

As much as I love dressing low key, cute, like a boy, like your mom etc., a part of me loves being GOTTI. Like straight up Versace belt with white pants and a sequin bomber. I feel like I could date an Italian dude and rival his Uncle Vinny’s gold chain game, no joke.

Big, chunky, flashy, yellow gold, sometimes the heart wants what it wants. (gold chain is from Dressew, and the door knocker – chicken head swerving – earrings are from Cali. Aye oh!) 

I just really love the look of chain print.

Fabric on the left is something I picked up a few years ago. I haven’t done much with it eggcept drape it on myself when watching Godfather, Scarface or Belly. I also picked up a vintage Versace silk scarf at a thrift store wayback. Not sure if it’s real but it makes for a  great Pac head piece when cleaning.

Care for some chain print love making? let’s!

John Zack Dress $53 / River Island Jeans $71 / ASOS Bodycon Dress $45. I’m usually not a fan of dresses I can’t eat at a buffet with but these are too cute! Esp lovin’ the white one, very Sunday bad girl church-esque.

Gottex swim suit $188 $150 / Joy Han Dress $273. I so would fuck with that gottex swim suit! Beautiful. Eggcept my hair would be WAY bigger and I’d be carrying kittens under each arm. Meow.

Hermes Catenina purse $5,850 / D&G wrap skirt $448 / Gucci Scarf $395. Obviously I had to include a little designer to keep you pining for more. Okay, do we want to make babies with that Dolce skirt or what? Shwing batta batta.

And of course, the dress that got me confessing my love of chains to you all.

Picked up this bad boy over the weekend while on my camping trip in Washington (rainy camp day equals shopping in the city). Guess where i got it! If you saw my instagame last night then you might already know, but I got it at Ross, for $18! Actually it was $20 but the cashier liked my hello kitty purse so she gave me 10% off. Look at that slutty slit.

I saw it hanging all by its lonesome self on a rack and it was loin quivers at first sight. Thank goodness i’m built like a quarterback bc i seem to fit every orphaned size no one wants.

Anyways, I hope you’ll stay with me on this love boat to Chainville. Let them other birds wear all over puppy prints, we swiggin’ with the big boy chains now! happy hump day xo.

May Day

Happy Tuesday sweet peas! Can you believe this shit is already May? Cot dayum holy Gina! I love May, it’s like a pre-funk into summer, def can’t be mad at that. As promised, a short post on my shopping haul from this past weekend’s trip to Seattle. I didn’t buy much, but what I got you might like so we can sharesies ok?

Neon is like, so my favorite right now. Old Navy Women’s Faux-Patent Leather Narrow Belts $14.95 (buy here). I got both for $9.

Forever 21 striped mesh yolk dress $9.50 (buy here) / H&M Houndsooth dress $18  (similar ones here).

The first dress is so going to be my Vegas uniform, I can already see all the trouble its going to get into. The second dress will be the one I wear the next morning to church to confess all the sins from the night before. Praise Allah!!! lol

Forever 21 Striped nautical shorts $15.80 (buy here). These shorts are so comfy and actually flattering, love them.

Finally got to pick up my IVs and grabbed Ray ‘s AF1 Camos as well.

Pretty sick huh? I think they were released at Dipt on Saturday, peep here.

And finally some gifted items:

Girl guide cookies hehe / tees from Rock, Paper, Scissors (RPS) in Seattle. Thanks to the homie Viet for hookin me up!

I saved the best for last though…

HELLO KITTY skateboard (buy here). I know, so effin’ legit right? I dont skateboard, but now I might just have to. So friggin’ amazeballs.

Ok. that was all. Are you having a good Tuesday so far? I’m so hungry. My Vegas diet started as of this morning. No more chips, pop, candy, and red meat. Wish a sista luck!

Say Yes to the dress.

You know what I’m really good at? like.. ridiculously amazing at? Falling in love. I swear, i must’ve majored in that in my previous life. Okay before you yell at me for spending money that I shouldn’t have, this purchase comes with an awesome story.

So I saw this beautiful H&M maxi in a magazine, gorgeous dress, like everything i’ve wanted in a relationship dress; long, clean and a total stunner. I went into H&M this past weekend and there it was! Too bad the only sizes left were 12 and 14. I bought the 12 anyways because I couldn’t risk not having it (stalker gf tendencies, dont mind me). I spent the next half hour calling all the H&Ms with no luck. It was a limited edition dress and not all the stores got it in. Needless to say I was fucking irritated! But bc I know my luck with the things I love, I went back into H&M just to look around the racks to see if some fucker had left my size else where. Wishful thinking right? THEN it happened, I spotted a white dress sitting on a random rack and it was MY dress in MY size!!

I swear I have the best shopping stories. Now I know for sure this dress and I were meant to be! Like come on, what were the odds of finding my dress size when there were practically no dresses left? Another customer who saw me trying on the dress earlier actually spotted me in the store again and she couldnt believe my luck either! Turns out she bought the dress bc she saw me wearing it. The End.

Forever21 maxi dress, this was under $20 and i only got it bc the coral color was so vibrant (buy here). I have lots of turquoise colored jewelry..green + coral go together like peas and carrots. I didnt get those bow tie jelly shoes, just wanted to show you how cute they were.

I’ve been eyeing these for like 2 months now at Club Monaco. Sorry can’t justify $100 sweat tights. sigh. Arent they fab though? Half leather, half fabric, full amazeballs.

Also picked up my first fringe necklace. What do you think? I’m all over this ish. Collar bones are so hot to me, esp when they’re peek a boo’n from a white crisp v-neck on a dude. Talk about YOM alert. Mmmm.

Eggscuse me as I wipe the drool from my lips.. If you haven’t already done so, head on over to Vancitybuzz to read my latest article on the Fringe Binge.

Anyways I just wanted to share my dress story with you :)  I hope you’re having a good day and that everything goes your way! If not, fuck it and start again tomorrow. Love you, bye.

Seattle shopping purchases!

As much as a I love a good meal, coming across a great deal is just as satisfying! And you already know I’m all about the deals, it’s easy to look like a million bucks when you got the cheese to blow but when you don’t? well, my friend, you come to me.

First off let me tell you a small story behind the first purchase during my Seattle trip. I’ve wanted this bag since the day I laid eyes on it.  It’s like the little step sister of my other beloved bag picks, as seen here and here. I saw it on the Old Navy website awhile back and the only site with the yellow version was on the American site. $20 for the bag, $25 for shopping, that type of math is not cool with me.  So there we were in Seattle, browsing around in downtown and I thought to myself, why not pop into Old Navy and see if the coveted, almost 2 season old, bag is there. Obviously it wouldn’t be because that’s just the way of life. I went to the bag section, nothing.. then the clerk mentioned a clearance section downstairs. So off I went with a small tug at my heart knowing it probably wouldn’t be there and if somehow it was, there would be a huge stain on it, or something of that nature. Then behind a big brown satchel bag, was a yellow strap. A yellow strap attached to the bag I’ve been wanting!!! There she was, the last bag sitting alone, as if waiting for her mom to pick her up from school. Seriously, I felt like I had won the jackpot! You’re wondering why this bag needed a 39043 word interlude, its because things like this never happen to me. ($12)

How cute is this little nutsac of a bag? adorbs aint she? sigh, swoon. I was at the Nordstrom Rack after that and wanted to push my luck by praying to the retail gods that my DVF dress would be there… AND IT WAS!

just kidding. that shit don’t happen twice.

After my yellow bag purchase it was all gravy on the boat. Picked up some bikinis from forever21 that were sold out online last week (not pictured, you’re welcome), then I got something else that you might like. The girls and I were at a liquor/world store place buying wine and cheap thrills when I spotted a fur collar with a broken button. I’ve been wanting one for some time to wear on top of my leather jackets or tucked in my coats. What a perfect find right!? there were 2 left, I got one and left the other for Janet.  What a steal. It’s made a home in my closet already. ($10)

Another fur purchase (lord don’t hate me) is this amazing, buttery soft Safari Jacket from Macy’s. I swear I’m a beast when it comes to deals.

This one was just sitting on the rack and I didn’t even want to  try it on bc I have my H&M one but the texture was softer and even the color was warmer, a light grey/cream/white as opposed to my brown/black one from H&M.

Needless to say it was the peanut butter to my jaaAAAM and I wasn’t leaving without it. $200, with 80% off with an additional 10% bc of my Canadian passport. Total was less than $38 for a ¾ sleeve fur coat. God she’s a beauty! Oh and I love layering it with my leather jacket, makes for a great look dont you think? ($37)

And last but not least, I found some awesome leopard, drop crotch, high waisted with multiple buttons harem pants at Forever21. I heart them…. They’re so silky and soft. ($17.50)

What do you guys think of the stuff I bought? Would you have gotten it if you saw it? I want to know what inspires you to buy what you buy. Is it because everyone else has it? or because no one else has it? Just curious thats all. Okay let’s chat later, time to get ready for dins and a movie. xoxo

Happy Tuesday my Vickylovers!

I love vintage, almost as much as I love the puurfect snuggling position, almost. Maybe it’s the high in finding the perfect designer vintage, or maybe its the fact you’re in the presence of something truly one of a kind! Sure, I can go spend $30 at H&M and get a nice sweater that every girl and their dog will be rockin’ tomorrow.. or I can try to spend my time wisely in vintage shops in the hopes of finding a hidden gem. I find Vancouver not to be the friendliest in designer vintage because everyone is looking for the same thing, so you can imagine my eggcitement when I stumbled upon By Consignment in Oakville, Ontario.

I almost feel like i shouldnt be sharing this because its such a great find..but i dont want to be an asshole. Sharing is caring! Its a little consignment store in Oakville, think Shaughnessy/British Properties but for Ontario, yeah you get the idea. How genius though, wealthy neighborhood full of women trying to recycle their designer goodies. Winning!!

Ostrich hand bag

Cole Haan pony boots

Tiffany’s and Hermes making babies in the glass case

Who would’ve thought  those gotti Moschino/Versace belts would be fashionable again? the last time i saw them on someone it was worn with white pants and a bomber jacket. Oh 2003, how i’ve missed you.

Seriously this store was a complete mecca of all things beautiful. Gucci, Dolce, real furs, Miu Miu, Theory, and the list goes on.

The only thing I left with was this little gotti Versace-esque inspired belt. Homegirl Corrine rocked something similar for New Years and I was sold. We likey?

I think im going to try really hard this year to only purchase unique pieces, my goal is to have a stylist worthy wardrobe. Dress in a way that can only be defined as Vickyloves… Cheers to that!! Happy day m’loves. Have a great rest of the day and dont forget to tell someone youre thinking of them today. Love is what makes the world go round.
