Boots for Snow

Every year I buy myself a pair of boots. This year I decided to buy a pair of boots that are waterproof, and it was also my first pair of Sorel boots. At first I was not sure about the purchase because they were $100 (any purchase over $50 requires serious thought for me).sorel1

After the first time wearing them I was in love.

Recently Portland has gotten snow and ice, which I do not like. However the wedge heel on these boots it perfect for cracking through the top layer of ice on snow.

The boots make me feel extra sassy because of the wedge. They are also extremely comfortable. I am very impressed with Sorel’s quality so far.

My Fashion Addiction: Part 1

I love fashion and clothing of all kinds. There are some items I enjoy more than others, and some that I ¬†am addicted to buying. I can’t even completely explain why. The first addiction I have, and the most impractical, is bikinis.

I love bikinis. It may partly be because I only wear them during fun summer activities, like trips to the river. I only get to wear them about 3 months out of the year, but I like variety.

This is the second most recent addition to my collection. It is from Victoria’s Secret and was $80. I don’t normally like to spend that much, but this top has underside which I love. Under wire in a bikini top means less neck pain at the end of the day for me.

I searched for 2 years to find the perfect red bikini. I found this one on figleaves.com. The best part is it was on sale for $35. The brand is Pour Moi. I highly reccomend this brand for anyone who has a larger chest. They are well made and go into large cup sizes. Be careful when ordering because they use UK sizing.

I purchased this bikini because it is simple, and I feel like black is a classic. Strapless is not my favorite. This one is from Victoria’s Secret and has under wire so it stays up pretty well.

Another Victoria’s Secret bikini. I love the eggplant purple color. I think it is flattering even when I am my most pale. The last time I looked on their site I couldn’t find this style. I really hope they bring it back.

This bikini was kind of an accident. The picture online looked red. It is in fact pink, but it isn’t super bright. It was also on sale for $39.50 when I bought it. This top has the same fit as the green one up top. If you find a style from Victoria’s Secret there are lots of slight variations available.

This is a La Playa bikini that I purchased from Brazilian bikini shop.com. I had wanted a Brazilian style bikini since I was 16. I bought this last August for a trip to Vegas with a friend. The bottom is smaller than I expected, but I love it. After shipping and conversion the bikini cost $70.

This bikini is from Hawaii. My Mom and I went on vacation in February and I got this. It is RVCA. Their bikinis run $60 to $90 , it completely depends on the style and where you purchase from.

I always think it is interesting to see what other people have in their closets. If nothing else after reading this, you can probably feel better about your own swimwear collection. I do admit it is kinda crazy to have this many bikinis, but I love them all.

If I was a ‘Rich Girl’

Yesterday I was listening to music on my way to work and a song came on that I had not heard since high school. ‘Rich Girl’ by Gwen Stefani featuring Eve. This got me thinking about what my life would be like if I was rich. Most of the things that immediately popped into my head were normal, buy a house, give money to the charities I already support, etc. Then this purse popped into my head.

ChloeMediumMarcie-1If I was a rich girl I would carry this purse.

Nordstrom sells this bag for just shy of $1,900. Outside my price range unless I win the lottery. It is fun to dream though.
