Veeezy Christmas WANT LIST (Pt. 2)

When i’ve gained a few and a button has popped, or have stained my favorite blouse (FML) – the most constant and reassuring outfit feature are my shoes! Whether it be my beloved Jordans, or some badass fuck me pumps, there’s really no bad day to go shoe shopping…especially virtual shoe shopping. Hi friends!

Zara‘s shoe game has been so proper the last few months their designer must be getting some on the regular. I love everything!

Studded Ankle Boot / Leopard slippers – I think everyone needs a pair of these.

Dont know what it is about studs but they make me so happy. Studded cap toe boots / Lepard print sandals / Ankle strap sandals / Ankle strap pumps

TOPSHOP has wall after wall, after wall of complete shoe heaven. It’s like stacked porn on each display. topshop3

The perfect pair of simple black boots!! Bazaar mid heel boots /  I dont like these ones I picked so ignore the second pair.

Pin stud pointed boots / Chelsea point boots / Ava side zip western boots

Shoes are fun no?  Great for strutting away, great for prancing around the city like Carrie from Sex and the City. But most importantly, great for boosting morale when your day is a little grey, or your mood is a little sour. When I grow up I want a place to call home my shoe closet..

JUST KIDDING. Just build me a really big fridge. Happy Tuesday, doll faces!!

Fashion Goals.

You know that thing that women do, when they’re shopping & looking at some badass piece of clothing, then exclaim “love it, but I def can’t pull it off.” Fuck dude, that’s always been such a big pet peeve of mine! It’s pretty much saying you lack the confidence to pull off a  look you’re actually into, simply because it doesn’t fit into your fashion comfort zone. Bitch, live a little! I know it may sound a little cray but when I wear stuff, it’s mostly for me. It’s not to impress others and gain attention, it’s to make me feel fabulous! But don’t get me wrong, I have fashion insecurities too. Most of my clothing issues stem from the fact I don’t fit into them anymore or don’t have the right body type. Thanks to my hibernation weight gain (hey 10lbs, wassap), it’s okay though –  I have high self-esteem, I ain’t phased.  But my desires to wear cute stockings with short shorts is no longer an option, goodbye adorable waxed jeans, hello stretch pants. Not to say you gotta be rail then to dress well but it def makes the outfit try ons and shopping excursions that much more enjoyable. And to moments like these, I praise Allah for fabulous shoes and bags because them shits always fit!!
So because I’m currently in this fashion funk where all the clothes I want don’t seem to zip up properly, or fit for that matter,  I thought what better time then to focus on some trends I wanna get into but haven’t yet. Here are some things I’d love to don if I could…

Sky high heels –

Giuseppe Zanotti sky high platform / Christian Louboutin Highness Tina Fringe Boots

Oh gosh the higher the heel the longer your legs look, me loves! But how do these broads walk around looking like a graceful cot dayum gazelle? I can barely walk straight in flats let alone add height to the equation. But seriously, when a girl pulls this off and does it well – I get major balance/grace envy. High heels just demand attention, meow!

Pointy / Stiletto nails –

I’ve always been a square or oval shaped nail type of gal but these cat / point nails are kind of dope. Not only do they lengthen your fingers, they just look super badass. Very cat woman/dominatrix-esque. But can you imagine all the cuts you’d give yourself? I guess it’s  worth it to look a little emo esp if your nails are this spectacular.

Backless clothing –

Sometimes it pays to be flat chested. You can go braless for morning coffee runs, well..that’s about it really. But now you have another thing to rejoice about, backless shirts! I love this look. The idea of an unexpected peek-a-boo behind is very sexy. No bra needed? No prob for the moderately endowed. If I wore this I’d have such bad nipple-it is people across town would see.

 Crazy eye makeup –

You know, this is the one thing I regret not paying attention to while growing up. My sister is an amazing make-up artist, and I spent years resisting her services and secretly taking it off because I felt so weird with it on. Now at the ripe age of 25 I’m wanting to learn how to contour, blend eye shadow, create the smoky eye effect. This shit is fucking hard. But I give it to the girls that majored in clown make up and are running the streets with their cray faces – very neat to see! And plus they make your face so beautiful and glamorous!!

Anyways I just had some banana chocolate chip pancakes and done gon’ caught da itis brah! See you in a few, have a great weekend xo.

TOPSHOP = Shoe Heaven

Seriously, is it just me or does the shoe section at the new Vancouver Topshop make you want to froth at the mouth? I finally got to check out the store this weekend and as big as it was (AND BUSY) I couldn’t find anything that stood out, like whoa. But the shoes, yeah the shoes were killer.

My picks:

I must’ve picked up the studded boots a hundreds times before leaving the store. So in lust! The ankle strapped pumps with the blacked out toe part was also tugging at my heart.

I’m in need of new combat boots, mine are on its last leg of life! These Topshop ones are super kawaii and of course, another pair of toed booties… :) Most of these shoes retail for $100-$130 which isn’t bad.. just sad if you want all 4 equally.

Ok so I lied, i did find 2 dresses I thought were kinda cute.

White plunging neck line dress/ Sequin galore dress <—I VAAAANT.

Did any of you go? What did you buy? tell me! I did manage to find a few items.. post to  come :)

Happy Monday Funday, veeezylovers xo.

 

 

Seattle weekend!

Not gon’ lie.. it’s kind of poopy to be back after a weekend of celebrating love, stuffing my face, and meeting some amazing, amazing people from all over! From Toronto, to New Jersey.. there were so many sweet individuals that made this trip so memorable, thus making the return home that tragic! Know what else is tragic? I wore a total of 7 outfits this past weekend and didnt take a pic of any lol. I hate me too.

B scooped me up on Friday with goodies (because he is that type of awesomeness) and we were officially enroute to Seattle and in vacay mode holla!!

One gas stop, and one Nacho Libre movie later, we were in Seattle. First stop, UH OBVI – Crawfish King!

Dinner for 5 was no joke! Got to share my Seattle fav with some newbies and it was a total hit. I tapped out early though, but not before i murk’d that caaawrn.

The rest of the evening was spent back at our hotel, The Arctic Club, meeting B’s out of town fams/friends (all 20 of them!).

The lounge was dark, old school heritage-ish type of steeze, I was def into it. The guys drank their faces off while I stepped up for the women’s team and had my 1 vodka soda lol.  Fun night that ended only when the bar closed! Trust me, i was buzzin and ready for some zzzz’s.

Our hotel room (taken in the AM for better lighting)

High ceilings and very old school features, felt like I was in an old movie!

I wore every pair, thats how tight my outfit game was! Kind of choked i didnt document it, damn.

After frolicking in the AM (aka a coffee run for B who was nursing a sweet hangover, thats right.. gf of the year award goes to me) it was fam brunch time at Ivar’s and of course… your girl had the food of her people’s.. fish tacos!

It rained for most of the day but we still managed to walk the city and hit up Target, my fav! We finally made it back to our telly for some rest and rompin’ before the wedding.

Zara Asymmetric dress / the feather/lace one never arrived at the store so I settled for this bad boy. I gotta admit, this dress and I were meant to be. It was comfy, and sit snuck at all the right places with the perfect amount of one shoulder flow. I felt like I was J. Lo with that huuur do as well. It just worked!

The gents! Their sock game was proper..like all the way turnt up, it was adorable!

Open bar = time to play! Some of the ladies and I. I miss them already!

The lovely Cat and I.

The actual wedding/dinner was held upstairs in the ballroom…

talk about fancy, right?

The bride and groom, Felice and Peter, gettin their 2 step on.

I love personalized name tags, so m’f’n official.

Ate myself into a coma! After dinner the open bar re-opened and the rest was a total fun blur. And of course in true Veeezy fashion, I disappeared for an hour and took a fat ass nap in our hotel room hahaha! Woke up, headed back to the wedding and drank all the way to last call. What a fun night.. so glad I could be a part of it!

The next morning was bitter sweet, it was the last brunch before everyone headed off to their next destination or home. Good thing the food was bomb dot com, made eating my feelings that much more bearable. Seafood heaven = Salty’s on Alki

seafood galore / biscuits x gravy / caramel and chocolate fountain. I die!!! What an epic meal, not so much for those suffering from the night before but seriously, I felt like a champ :)

After the final hugs for the cousins, aunts and uncles we were headed home *tear. I can’t really find more words for awesome and amazing, but meeting folks that feel like life long friends isnt easy to put into words. When you meet good people, you just know. Seriously, I’m such a lucky mofo. Until next time fam jam!!! So like, what did you do last weekend?
