The one with no cleavage…

I used to think shopping was a fun activity… USED TO THINK SO. Although I am an anything-clothing-shoes-and-accessory-lover, today I had an epiphany…

Shopping is like running a marathon.

I was invited today for some shopping. It lasted not more than 3 hours, but… Boy, oh, boy! When I got home, all I wanted to do was to take a loooooooong and well-deserved nap for the marathon I ran (shopping that is). As I was running through the Rideau Center with my partners in crime, I coped a dress from Club Monaco and some goodies from Victoria Shhh… it’s my secret.

I was told I needed a push up bra to fill in the gap around the breast area. (thanks for the genes, Mama. Fantastic).

– Oddly enough, it brought me back to that period of my life when I wanted a breast augmentation for the simple reason that I never filled up the dresses… Hhhmmm. I simply enjoy looking like a boy from time to time, now. But I digress –

I have to say, a small breast has its advantage in some cases. Although, the question I am asking myself is: How low can you go with the cleavage?
I like it when it is tasteful, sexy and feminine. (I also do not mind the side boob).

Dans quel cas le “cleavage” est trop profond? (huhuhu ^_^)

The struggle has been real, but…

There is one thing I’ve always wanted (except saving the world, loving hard and passionately, travel around the world, meet Dalida, Aristotle Onassis and Jackie Kennedy, finding a cure to AIDS, owning AN olive tree AND an argan tree, learning how to work with leather, having a breast augmentation, live in a forest away from everything and being one with nature, visit India, Morocco, having 6 kids and making my parents proud):

BOOTS.
Knee-high boots. Whether it’s a high heel or not.

It’s literally been more than 6 – 7 years of looking.
I FINALLY found something and I’m in love.

[- Are you sure?
– Yes, Mom! They’re perfect. Everything I hoped for.]

C’était inespéré! I’m a size 40 EU/10 US [Does I sound like I worked in a shoe store?] and I have the TINIEST calves of life, which makes it SUPER HARD to find ANY-THING.
How hard is it nowadays to find boots, your dream boots? (Way too complicated).

It’s funny (well, not so funny, actually) because we know what we want and everything you find is a pale comparison to your dream boots: knee-high or over the knee, black or brown, perfect fit around the calves, not a lot of bling on them (none), simple yet you want an “umph” factor… making sure they don’t make your feet look HUGE (oh hai to all the girls with size 10-11-12 feet) Classy. One you can wear up or down, with a dress, with jeans… basically your new boyfriend for a couple of months ’til your new find.
(Hahaha. Ever wonder how the hell you used to dress up like until you buy the perfect jeans, or the perfect wool coat, or the perfect leather jacket!
Ah! Société de consommation.)

After scouring the internet for inspiration, here’s my top 5 boots:

Style: Black Prometeo Erse. Can be found on Shopbop

Dis-moi / Tell me –

It always happens to me. Everytime I think of a decent outfit to put together for either a date, a GNO (Girls Night Out), or a special event, I fail miserably. It looks terrible, it seems really recherché, when in fact I’m only trying to look decent. Am I alone here? It once took me… Continue reading Dis-moi / Tell me –
