Lazy with a Capital L

... What else is new? I've been so lazy to take pictures of my outfits and whatnots. I don't even know why. I think I'm just stuck in the back to school slump where I'm in denial about things I need to/should do! Le sigh, it'll catch up to me eventually. 

Outfit post for today:
It was actually pretty chilly out today without a jacket! I got off school at 2:30 and I thought it'd be warmer downtown but nope. I guess fall is finally starting to kick in.

In other news, I took a short trip down to Lynnwood this weekend and picked up a couple things. There wasn't too much to buy though and imo this area of the west coast is just really shopped out! I'm sure shopping is way better when you move down the coast and into California but a trip there isn't happening any time soon :(
Found this Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C Clutch at Nordstrom Rack for $159.97! It's missing a tassel but I can live without it. I'll probably just end up taking it off like I did with my black mini M.A.C.
I'm not sure how much this retails for in Canada, but the US tag says $295.00.

Size comparison between the mini M.A.C. (black) and the M.A.C. (white)

Also picked this up from the Seattle Premium Outlet at the Fossil Store
It was $99.99
Not sure how much this retails for in Canada either but the US retail price was $200

The rest of these purchases are from Canada!
Also got these light grey zippered skinnies from Zara. I was searching for just the right grey color and these worked out perfectly. A friend gave me a pair of harem pants from Zara but since I have a pair already I exchanged them for these.

Another thing I've been itching to buy for the closet is brown pants! I think these are great for the fall especially as an alternative to black skinnies. Can't wait to wear this with baggy sweaters and cardigans during the fall.
These are from Bluenotes and they were cheap so I figured I might as well. They were about $17.75.

Hehe don't ask me why, but I also had to buy this hat. I promise I'll wear it in the winter because it was an impulse purchase for $3.50.

That's all for today! Happy trails everyone. Enjoy the last little bits of what looks like summer until it starts to rain everyday and fall is really here.

Dinner at U and I Thai

Boyfriend and I had a LivingSocial voucher to use for U and I Thai so we decided to use it today. It was such a good deal, $15 for $30 worth but at the time I had a $10 coupon so it was $5 for $30 worth hehe. We've never been to this restaurant before but at $5 we had nothing to lose trying it.

Top | T. Babaton (also the shirt I mentioned but didn't picture in my previous post!)

Simple table setting

Stuffed Chicken Wings with Plum Sauce

Pad Kratiem Prig Thai with marinated chicken

Yellow Curry Chicken with Sweet Potato

Overall, a very good dinner and friendly service. I'm not a food critic so I don't have much to say but I'd come back!

What's New in My Closet

AKA some recent purchases.

Unfortunately I don't have photos for the first 2 items. They need to be dry cleaned since strap from my Chanel purse transferred black dye. I hate it when that happens!

T. Babaton Silk Blouse (in pale blue, not black)

Wilfred Bustier Top (in ice age (a pale blue color), not delphinium)
These were purchased from Aritzia during the Snooze You Lose Sale, not the warehouse sale.

Unfortunately (but fortunately for my wallet), I didn't buy much in Vegas. Surprisingly my boyfriend bought way more than I did for once!

Seven for All Mankind Roxanne Skinnies

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty. I should've shopped more at Sephora since it's cheaper than ours in Canada and the tax in Vegas was only 8.1%!

Since I've been back I've only online shopped. No time for the mall!

Chiffon Blouse from Bluenotes

Lace Tank from Bluenotes

Forever 21 is having a buy one get one free Labour Day sale so I also bought some times. $76 after tax for 12 pieces is pretty good! Here's what I ordered:
Neon Polka Dot Print Romper

Sheer Lace Panel Tunic

Chiffon Trimmer Trapeze Tank

Boxy Eyelash Lace Top

Striped Woven Tank

Flowers & Rosettes Tank
Not a fan of the rosettes so I'll see if I can remove them.

Lace Tank Top

High Back Swing Tank

Tie-Dye Trapeze Tank

Lace Back Trapeze Tank

Denim Cutoffs

Knit One Shoulder Bandage Dress

Whew, that was a lot of stuff to post. I think I'm done back to school shopping, then again I always say I'm "done" shopping :)

Where Did Summer Go?

If it isn't obvious already, I have a knack for disappearing from this blog! Where have I been..? Well, 30 pages of research papers and 3 exams later, I ended up in Vegas. I left the day after my last exam which was also my 21st birthday hehe. My Mom gifted me with a trip to Vegas for myself and my boyfriend and since I've been back I've been working everyday to conclude my summer. Sorry about the lack of outfit posts!

Here's some photos from Vegas in the meantime..
View from our room. Wynn, Encore, Venetian, Palazzo

Ben & Jerry's at  the Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood

Hehe loitering at the giftshop at Mirage

Anyone remember this 'gator from Rainforest Cafe when it was at Metrotown back in the day? You could throw coins into its mouth when it hissed. This in the MGM Grand.

Chandelier at the Cosmopolitan
Arty at LAVO in Palazzo. I wish I took some pictures of TAO as well. Specifically the bathroom door which starts out clear (like regular glass) and frosts over when it's locked. Impressive bathroom door, the inside not so much.

Pink elephant outside Marc by Marc Jacobs. I think this was in the Miracle Mile Shops as well.

Hehe don't mind my reusing of the watch photo. I like the background. 
The set of bracelets I'm wearing is the one I mentioned in my previous post that was part of a Canada Day order from Forever 21.
