Now that's Fresh.

I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a pair of lace-up wedge booties that don't look too clunky or too high. Well, looks like my prayers have been answered and, added bonus, these beauties are from Joe Fresh and retail for $79. They come in gray (shown below) as well as camel and black.

Joe actually has a great selection of winter booties this season, so I highly recommend a visit to one of their freestanding stores, or your local Real Canadian Superstore to check them out.

Endless Salivating

While trying to track down a discounted pair of Vince Camuto Braden boots, I happened upon my new favorite online shopping site: An affiliate of Amazon, Endless carries shoes, bags, and accessories and is linked to your Amazon account. That means, they already have your information and they ALSO ship internationally. In fact, their checkout system is so comprehensive that they can even estimate the duty that you will be charged on your shipment so that you can pre-pay it (or take one look at it and decide to buy it the next time you are in the states :). Luckily for me, the Bradens were already marked down $50 when I found them, so even with $36 in duty, I paid less than the sticker price, all in.

Oh, and they have free shipping to the US and 365 day returns. Make sure you check them out, especially with Black Friday/Cyber Monday quickly approaching!

Nordstrom, I need you.

Nordstrom is my mecca. A place where (nearly) everything is in style, well-made, and well-priced. And their return policy is completely ridiculous--in a good way. I love it, love it, love it.

I recently made a few purchases at the Half Yearly sale, including a Michael Kors coat, a pair of 7 for All Mankind skinnies, and a few sweaters and skirts. Then, shamefully I must admit that while on a weekend trip down to Portland I paid the store another visit...

For those who have yet to visit the great state of Oregon, you may be interested to learn that there is no sales tax in the entire state. That means, the sticker price of whatever item you are lusting over is the final price! As someone living in Vancouver, that's something I really appreciate. I managed to restrain myself and only buy one item, which I am absolutely in love with. Don't laugh.

It's a Timex Easy Reader watch. Yes, the same brand that my father wears. But, as you can see below, this isn't your daddy's watch. And at only $60 (tax free!) it was definitely an affordable indulgence.
