Red Purse

A recent medical condition has confined me to the same bottoms and flats for over a week now.

I think there will be a few more of those days before I can decorate my legs with color again.

And thus, my outfits have been somewhat monochromatic of late. At least the bottom half.

Excuses, excuses! I know, why should I let my bottom wear dictate my outfit. After all, isn't black the best base?

Looking back, maybe my outfits weren't as monochromatic as I thought.

But why have they gotten me seeing red?

No offense my current babies, but all these outfits would go amazingly with a RED PURSE!

Mmmm, red purse...

Goodies From Taxless County

Alright, time to share my spoils with you guys!

If you follow my instagram, username Poserseries, then you would have seen some of them already.

But here we go!

Honestly, I actually didn't buy all that much this trip. Since this is a trip just to shop. But sometimes it's all about quality.

What should I share first...

I will start with the clothes. Which, was a disappointing haul.

Forever21 haul, fashion, style, maxi skirt, sparkles

I only went to Forever21 and BCBG for clothes this trip. That whole "pile" was from forever21. Nothing too exciting, more or less just basics really.

The second day of shopping I met up with my friend, the one that was in my last post and we went at it.

Our first stop was Ross and I ended up with these booties.

black booties with studs

Then went back to forever21 because she hasn't been yet, even Nordstrom rack, not nothing.

Until we reached MACY's!! They were having a huge sale and everything was 75% off!!

Delighted we grabbed arm full of shoes and proceeded to try them on.

I came home with these.

Metallic Flat sandals, Marc Fisher gold tone sandals, Vince Camuto silver sandals, BCBGeneration metallic silver gladiator sandals, Jessica Simpson Leopard criss cross red heel platform stilettos, MIA oxford nude platform chunky heels, Jessica Simpson blue suede platform Stilettos, fashion, style, shoe love

I love it when they are standing tall atop their temporary homes.

Now let's take a closer look.

Metallic Flat sandals, Marc Fisher gold tone sandals, Vince Camuto silver sandals, BCBGeneration metallic silver gladiator sandals, fashion, style, shoe love

Come to think of it, I really don't have any fancy flat sandals. But now I have three pairs! From left to right, they are Marc Fisher, Vince Camuto and BCBGeneration, which I am proudly rocking today.

BCBGeneration Metallic Gladiator Sandals

Next up, heels!

Jessica Simpson Leopard criss cross red heel platform stilettos, MIA oxford nude platform chunky heels, Jessica Simpson blue suede platform Stilettos, fashion, style, shoe love

Aren't they gorgeous!! Jessica Simpson, Mia and then Jessica Simpson again. I must say, those Jessica Simpsons are very comfortable because the balance is perfect and they are well cushioned as well. Those MIAs though... I would keep to sitting and standing only.

My favourite is the leopard pair. Rawr!

Jessica Simpson Leopard heels with red buckle and heel, leopard Stilettos, funky shoes, fashion, style, shoe love

I love the red heel! Yes, the red sole is what most girls covet. But until I can afford that, I will drool over these heels instead.

Last but not least, I also bought some bling.

Pandora and tiffany bracelets, Pandora charm holder bracelet, Pandora multi chain single charm holder bracelet, Tiffany and Co beads with tag bracelet, silver jewelery, Sterling silver, shiny, pretty

It annoys me that price discrepancies still exist even though the CND and USD are pretty much par. Since Portland also has no sales tax, I was not able to resist.

I love these new additions to my existing arm party. I now have six bracelets that act as armor and weaponry, oh yes, and decoration.

I had a great time in Portland, perhaps I will explore the next time I go there again... or... nah, I will just stick with eating and shopping.

Portland Fun

Hello posers!

I went traveling again. Although just a short trip, this time I did cross the border and headed south to Portland.

I have never been! Super excited about shopping with no sales tax!!! I am pretty sick and tired of paying 12% on everything when the money I make already gets taxed.

The trip turned out to be more than just shopping.

It started off with some sumptuous foods.

Good eats, food, fine dining, travel eats, French good, Mexican Good, American food, Liitle Bird Bistro, Azteca, Red Lobster, Portland, tourism, visiting, traveling, instagram

From decent French food at the Little Bird Bistro to large portions of Mexican food from Azteca to even the famous Redlobster I must say for the most part I enjoyed my bites.

Oh great, now I have huge cravings for refried beans!

We even tried P.F. Chang's China Bistro.

P.F. Chang dinner, Lettuce wraps, Chinese food, Good eats, Portland, tourism, visiting, traveling, instagram

Let me tell you, it was not bad. You can believe me too, because I am Chinese.

Most of our night time traversing happened around the Chinatown block. It's ironic how the Chinese population was actually nonexistent in Chinatown, instead it's littered with clubs around every corner.

Fun out on the town, Voodoo Donuts, Portland, Outdoor club, Portland, tourism, visiting, traveling, instagram

We didn't really stay out for too long before hunger had us and we had to go to the famous Voodoo Donuts. Good thing the line wasn't too long, the best were the Oreo and Bacon donuts! hmmm I would love one right now actually.

There were other points of interests around China town during the night as well. We didn't really explore that much since I wanted to save my energy for shopping.

Portland night life, Arcade, weird things on the streets, tourism, visiting, traveling, instagram

Though I probably should have visited the Arcade.

Or maybe seen one of these "ladies" perform.

On our last night, we spent some quality time with some unique brews.

Cucumber beer, beets beer, pomegranate beer, cinnamon beer, Amazing brews, Portland, tourism, visiting, traveling, instagram

From left to right: Cucumber, Pomegranate, Beet, Cinnamon and Classic

I liked the Cucumber and Pomegranate the best.

During the day, the food carts come out and play and they are definitely worth a visit.

Portland points of interest, Voodoo Donuts, Taco carts, Donuts, Pork Chop city, delicous, good eats, Portland, tourism, visiting, traveling, instagram

My last and most favourite meal in Portland was from Pork Chop City. I had their Pork Bento, which is basically their most delicious and juicy pulled pork over a bed of white rice.

After drizzling on some of their own Hot Ginger Sauce it was to die for!!!

I had to take some sauce home with me because it was so good.

Until next time Portland.

I will share my spending spoils with you guys in my next post.

My GoJane Haul

I have heard of GoJane before my torrid affair with fashion began.

However, I have never really ordered anything from them. That is, until my recent visit to Cracked my most favourite humour site! You see, they have opted in with Google Adsense, cleaver targeted advertising got me! So I ended up ordering from the GoJane ad I saw. Oh wells, capitalism wins all the time.

Bet you are curious to see what I got!

GoJane Bag, Online shopping

My favourite part of receiving new things in the mail is how they are all so nicely packaged in their individual wrappings. Just like candy.

GoJane Haul, items from GoJane, online shopping

I opened the Distressed Skull Sweater first. I have been on a large oversized sweater kick lately. Not really in buying them but more or less in looking at them. But they never come big enough! It's probably because I am not small enough. Oh well, make do I guess.

distressed skull sweater, white sweater, GoJane Sweater, skull sweater, AA disco pants, online shopping, outfit, style, fashion

Over all I like the way the sweater drapes as well as the fun skull right in the middle. The distress adds to the over all comfy feeling.

Then I remembered the jacket! This amazing Spiked Semi-Sheer Jacket.

I love the spikes on the shoulder! Also, anything with shoulder pads really tugs at my heart strings as well.

But I am contemplating maybe exchanging it for a larger size. It looks okay in the photo, but I would like the shoulder pads to be more exaggerated, and now if I zip up, they lose that effect. I guess it comes down to if I would be wearing this more zipped up then not. I have some time.

spiked stud headband, embellished fishnet pants, GoJane orders, Online shopping

Yup, I'm that person that would order the same thing in different colours if I really like the style! When I saw these embellished fishnet tights online, I was pretty awestruck. But once I have them in hand they are slightly lackluster. I will show you guys a better photo in one second. But these spiked head bands I love though. I am probably late to the show, but better late than never.

So tights.

spiked semi-sheer jacket, spiked shoullders, close up of white jacket, awesome jacket, GoJane Jacket, embellished fishnet pants, white pants, white tights

They look cool eh? But on me, I was disappointed. So disappointing in fact I didn't even want to take a photo of them on. My thighs looked bigger in them than they do in my AA Disco Pants or some other tights. The construction also felt slightly cheap. For $36.50 a pop, I expected better.

But perhaps it's because I ordered these in a size too large?

I usually pride myself in the ability to order online flawlessly. So far my track record has been flawless. But the adage of there is a first time for everything proves that there is a first time for everything.

Who knows if I will actually send them back. My laziness might trump over my dissatisfaction and I will find a way to make them work anyway.

Nothing like getting new stuff for a hump day pick-me-up, but what if you are not completely satisfied? Does it still count? I will say yes, because, tee hee, I still got new stuff.

Christian Louboutin Shoe Love

Happy 4th of July folks down south.

Today, I want to share with you some Shoe Porn!

During my recent stroll through Holt Renfrew, these amazing shoes stopped me in my tracks!

Christian Louboutin Isolde 160mm Nude Patent Leather Spiked Strappy Platform Pumps

I can't say I was not intimidated by them. This is the foot armor of glamazons. If I were to go into battle, these would be part of my protective gear. My enemies would be blinded by the glare created by these beauties! Or they will be too intimidated at the sight of such fierce creation and cower immediately.

Of course, to show I really mean business, the soles have already been stained red from all the battles won.

In the future, I imagine war would be fought with psychic abilities. I would be levitating to meet my enemies because I highly doubt I would be able to walk, let alone run in these.

Gypsy Night Market Vintage Sale

Last night Michael just got back from Tough Mudder, some crazy race for crazy people.

We decided to go for a stroll and check out the Chinatown Night Market, since it was only a couple of blocks away.

As expected, it was kind of sad. Next time I am just going to head straight to the Richmond ones.

However, the night was not a total bust. On the way home, we walked past The Fortune Sound Club. Usually filled with your dancing drinking variety of events. However, last night they had a special fashion and shopping guest, Gypsy Market Vintage. To match the neighbourhood happenings, it's a special Night Market Vintage Sale. Well, of course I had to go in!

It was well worth it.
