Shoes and manicures

Shoes and manicures

Continuing on with my increasing cynicism, I’m noticing that one (random) person during my peak hour train trip to work who without fail stops right before the ticket turnstiles before rummaging through their bag to find their train ticket. Meanwhile I’m always the unlucky one who stands directly behind them and can’t go into any other lanes else I be banished into the bad books by other disgruntled city workers. Oh I really must stop noticing such silly things.

I’ve resorted to online window shopping. I’m on a self imposed spending ban until my trip in 80-something days. I found these super cute J.Crew t-bar flats. I’d love them even more if they came in a leather slash satin black combination. I really want black t-bar shoes. Whether they be flats or heels, I don’t think I’d mind.

I’ve been really uninspired with manicures lately. I’m not sure what it is, but I find myself sticking to solid colours. I haven’t really touched my nail stamps that much this month. Here’s hoping that’ll change this month. I did a pseudo-skittle manicure with some purple and sparkles the other day. Nothing interesting. As is life. Le sigh.

Here’s hoping I’ll have something a little more interesting to post about next time. Hah.

My introduction to J. Crew

My introduction to J. Crew

US brands are becoming much more accessible with the advent of parcel forwarders. A few months ago, I put together a large haul of stuff, and happened to do some window shopping on the J. Crew website. You really have to wait around for the sales to be good at J. Crew. But when they’re good. They’re really good.

My choices included a few shirts (some from the girls’ department – OOPS). Oh and a one piece swim suit for my upcoming trip! I’m so excited. Anyway. They had another sale up yesterday and I couldn’t resist doing a bit of window shopping. No purchasing for me this time. I’m supposedly on a spending ban. Ahem.
