Chris and I took last Friday off to spend the day together aka. a date (woot woot!). We were praying for a "warm" winter day, but we ended getting snowed in for most of the day. That, of course, didn't deter us from having fun... or at least we tried not to let the cold temperature dampen our spirits ;) We started off the day with brunch, then a visit to The Bata Shoe Museum, then a visit to our local bookstore where we piled up our favourite magazines, found a corner to sit, and just read in silence for the next hour. I finally caught up on the celebrity gossips (guilty as charged, ha ha!) and he learned how to tie a bowtie. It was a pretty productive day ;)

This is what I wore to my 27th birthday dinner. Dang, it still hurts to say that I'm now officially a 27-year old! Can I rewind my life back to 25 and just stay there? :( Anywaaaays, a couple of weeks ago I was on the hunt for something new to wear on my birthday, be that a new pair of shoes, a purse, a dress, or even a top. My first stop was the Holt Renfrew Last Call (similar to Off Saks 5th, Nordstrom Rack, you get the picture...). As "amazing" as the sales were, I couldn't bring myself up to purchasing a $250 dress even after it was marked down from $800 :( So off I went to the J. Crew Factory Store. I was greeted by a chirpy (but very well-dressed!) sales associate who also told me that the entire store was 50% off. NOW WE'RE TALKING! I finally got something new to wear for my birthday: a $30 dress and a $10 rhinestone bracelet that I gladly purchased without hurting my bank account that much ;)

Remember this polkadot sweater? I was at Old Navy innocently browsing the store (yes, my current obsession!) when I spotted the same polkadot sweater in black. I mean, how can you say no to something black... in a form of a sweater... in the middle of winter... right? ;)

Pick Up Your Sunday Shoes

One of the first places I went to when I was in San Francisco was Uniqlo (In-And-Out being the first one, LOL!). And once I was in the store, I was in the zone. They make great basics at great prices, including this cashmere-blend beanie that was on sale for $7.99! I was not going to pass on that... or their jeans... or their heat-tech leggings... or gloves... pretty much everything they had in the store :p Anywhoodles, my mom is in town for my birthday weekend, so I'm expecting a lot of shopping and eating ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!

So here's the one and only set of outfit photos I managed to take while I was in San Francisco. It was the only sunny (albeit weeendeee!) day out of the 4 days I was there. The other 3 days? Rain friggin' storm! We took advantage of the sunny day by visiting SF's touristy spots, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Fishermans' Wharf, and taking a boat tour around the bay. The only thing we didn't do was the Alcatraz :( But that's OK, because I will definitely visit SF again... and make sure that my next visit is during the summer!

Happy weekend, everyone!

Since I took a 1.5 week-break over the holidays, I have a couple of sets of photos from early December that are just sitting in my blog folder. Well, here's one of them. There's no way I could wear just this these day :( Sometimes I wish I lived in the west coast where the coldest day = a leather jacket day. Taking outfit photos for the blog would be a lot easier! But I still ♥ the east coast :)
