This week I met Rachel Roy!

We have started receiving our lovely wedding gifts and our new Ralph Lauren China reminds me of the balloons at out wedding :)

My Bridesmaid Heath gave me a few special trinkets at our Toronto Wedding Celebration we hosted at a local bar, The Banknote. 

Saturday night we went out to see our friends, Wide Mouth Mason perform at one of my favourite Toronto venues, Horseshoe Tavern.

Art above was spotted inside The Horseshoe Tavern, the tile below B&W of Balzac's cafe floor tiles.

"These are a few of my favourite things!" Fall 2011/2012 Topshop jacket, Kersh floral blouse I bought in Saskatoon recently, and my new Coach Ocelot Wristlet!!

Our best little buddy.

Today after work Stephanie from Oh Heel No! and I met Rachel Roy!!! The Hudson's Bay Company hosted a casual gathering at their store right across the street from our office, obviously we had to go. It was so nice meeting the some of the marketing staff while we sipped raspberry mimosa's and waited for Rachel. Rachel was awesome, down to earth and more interested in getting to know me that I didn't really get a chance to tell her how inspiring she is. On the other hand she was REALLY touched I brought my Rachel Roy luggage tage (gift with RR purchase) I received last Fall. She said she remember designing the piece, seeing it again after what feels like a really long time she could remember the moment clearly. What a great way to end the day.

My new Rachel Roy dress could also be a beautiful long skirt! It's one of the most amazing dresses I have bought. I could easily put a beautiful blouse over the top for a dinner out with my hubby :)

On Friday during lunch Stephanie from Oh Heel No! and I took some pictures in the park together! Stephanie was wearing beautiful colours and clothes with a dash of Fall-Safari inspiration. Myself on the other hand was wearing my "I wish I lived in Europe" resort look. I have been getting A LOT of use out of my; Zara pants (part of a matching suit), MARNI x H&M silk blouse, SONIA by Sonia Rykiel blazer, and Aldo leather flats. Stephanie was also sweet enough to help me take pictures of items I have purchased in the last week. I'm obsessed and enjoying every minute ;) of my new mixed metals Kate Spade watch. I also have purchase my coveted large Coach Ocelot print handbag!! I love the print and red leather, "so me!" ;)

Above: I was super excited to wear my new sapphire blue, pepper patterned mullet dress that I found in China town recently, when I was shopping with my parents :)
Below: A new Kersh top I found at the mall in Saskatoon! LOVE the roses. Roses remind me of; Paris, Marie Antoinette, and our Wedding flowers.

LOVE my new Coach Legacy Penny Handbag my then Fiance, now Husband gave me at home in Toronto, the day before we flew off to Saskatoon! 

Above: Kara Laricks top I bought on my Bachlorette trip in Vegas (May 2012). Flats purchased in Spring 2012 at Aldo for strictly work purposes. Now that they are broken in and I need better Fall footwear attire, these flats were great shoes to have around for our trip. I bought new lavender paisley pyjamas at Wal-mart while we were in Waterton/Pincher Creek area. 

On our 1 week Wedding Anniversary I bought this know ring by a local Waterton artist, Daniel Sommerset. We tied the knot so I thought this was a great souvenir of our honeymoon. There is also nothing wrong with supporting local artists too! 

When flew out of Saskatoon so after spending a day driving back I treated myself to a small American Eagle Outfitters shopping spree. During the Wedding week a girlfriend had bought a very nice Infinity scarf from AEO so I wanted to do the same. I ended up buying 2 Infinity Scarves and a new Blouse. Sigh.

I was also excited to come home to some more of my recent Fall 2012/2013 purchases, like these ankle boots from Aldo.
