At first, I hit up Underworld (skate shop) because I had a gift certificate that my brother gave to me three or four years ago. If you like streetwear and skate shoes, they've got a stylish selection. Here's their online shop: http://www.underworld-shop.com/
I was really drawn to the clothes by Element Eden. http://www.elementeden.com/
I bought 2 dresses/tunics; they're very knitty and good quality material. :D Here's a pic of one of them (I couldn't find the other one on the site!):
|Looks like a shirt, but it's quite long.|
|The one I bought was black.|
After Underworld, I dragged my sister to the Plateau where I remember seeing this shop that caught my eye whenever I went to that area. It's a boutique called Aime Com Moi and it sells Montreal-based designers. No "made in china" stuff; it's all local which is REALLY cool!
I fell in love with this dress....
|Please pardon the vain posing...|
It's by a brand called Kollontai. Here's their website: http://www.kollontai.net/
It's made out of cotton with spandex...which makes it comfy, but the spandex kind of hugs every area...meaning I gotta pay attention to my posture and I must not gain any weight. o_0
The other item I got was this gorgeous blazer that my sister also loved and said she'd steal it from me. It's by Annie50. http://www.annie50.com/

|Yes, in black again!|
After that, my sister needed to stop by the Bay because her friend is registered there for wedding gifts... We stopped by some of the designer clothes section, and I saw this very gorgeous delicious coat (can't remember the brand) but it was 1,000$....so nope. Not in my budget. o_0
Anyways, this shopping session has really inspired me to haul my ass and start making my own clothes again!! BUT first...I gotta make plushies, lol. :( Otakuthon is officially a month away, and I have no merch ready. FanExpo is going to be equally crazy, so I gotta get crackin'.
Therefore in the meantime, I'll continue buying pretty clothes. ^_^ It's not a bad deal, but my bank account will start to cry. :o
