Sometimes I just don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on an outfit and when that happens I head to Aritzia at the mall. They have a great selection of really affordable clothing - mostly in black, black and more black with a bit of beige and grey thrown in. I love this top with the high slits on the side combined with one of their best selling faux leather leggings. These are the only faux anything that I wear - but they are just soooo good - high waisted, a great fit and if you wreck them - they are maybe around a hundred bucks??
However, when I go with an outfit like this I need to bling up my accessories and I pulled out all the stops here. On my feet is the best part - I NEVER get deals and in fact I am wary of deals…I sort of feel like if something is one sale there is a reason - no one else wanted it, bad fit, whatever…. These shoes are the Brian Atwood Karin Platform and I watched this shoe for almost a year online before I bought it. This shoe sells for around $1700 Canadian funds and I just couldn't get myself to spend the money. One day a couple of months ago I went on to look at the shoes just one more time and OMG - on sale for $595 and only 1 size 7 left which just happens to be my size. Well of course I had to scoop them up - they were meant to be right? WRONG….these shoes are so gorgeous, a work of art, I love looking at them but holy smokes - I literally can't walk in them. They are HIGH - like 6 inches but with a platform so I thought I would be fine - NOPE…these are officially my dining shoes - meaning I walk from the car to the restaurant and sit down and only if the restaurant is within about 100 metres. However, they look gorgeous on my shoe shelf and I always wanted them so I'm okay with it all. Lesson learned though - 6 inches is too high for Sarah.
Other things I am wearing - my favourite Ippolita Glamazon Dome ring and matching Glamazon silver hammered bangle. My go to clutch whenever I'm wearing silver accessories - the DVF 440 Clutch and these gorgeous Dior sunglasses.
And of course one of my new Fallon chokers that I literally want to wear every single day.
This outfit was so easy and with the exception of my shoes soooo comfy.
