What will you be doing this weekend? I'm hitting one of my favourite sample sales in town - REBORN! This cute Scandinavian boutique in Old Montreal is hosting their semi-annual with prices up to 75% off!!!
There are also various other local designers that participate (like Denis Gagnon where I scored these gorgeous fur and leather arm warmers). Hope to get another runway sample piece or this sick dress from Acne that's been saved on my laptop for a while now...

Probably the mothership of all envious closets ever, Tina Craig, the Bag Snob herself, has a pretty snobbish closet! The shoes, the jewelry, the clothes...And let's all take a minute to inhale her handbag collection! Inhale by nose in 5 counts (Kelly, Birkin, Constance, Medor, Ricky) and exhale by mouth in 5 counts (crocodile, alligator, lizard, python, goat skin). Ahhhh...feeling inspired??

After 3 days, countless accidents (we ran out of pants by lunch of second day) and much more frustration (from both parties involved), I broke down! You see, Ayden is a very stubborn toddler and currently in full "no/not now/no way" mode. And as it turns, his mother (moi) is an even more stubborn woman! For those of you who know me personally will testify that when I decide something, I go cold turkey no turning back.
I'm a very driven, determined and persuasive person. These personal traits proved to be very successful in the business world (my old life); not so much with a 2 1/2 yr old boy who's not ready to be diaperless! My downfall is my pride: I don't like to ask for help (not good especially when I have no idea what I'm doing) and that I don't like a defeat! In consequence, I've been on edge and had a mini breakdown this morning after a "funny" comment my hubby made (he thought it would lighten up the mood; I told him it was stupid and insensitive; he snapped back at me; I started sobbing and could no longer retain myself).
Other casualties over the past 3 days are Ayden (now thinks I'm punishing him by putting him on the potty), Olivia (being somewhat neglected) and my mom (let's just say my tone has not been as friendly). Feeling like a "bad mom", I'm in much need of some zen time. So after my yoga class & lunch, I went to my comfort zone: blogging, strawberries and Nutella! It's my peace & quiet time...for another two hours or so when I have to go pick up Ayden...then it's more potty time! Yey!!!

(Ecoté jacket and clutch)
It's another successful "chic for cheap"! I found this really cute embellished ethnic clutch at Urban Outfitters that has the same flare as the Antik Batik Banjo clutch that I've been debating forever if I should get (it's only $140 on Net-a-Porter.com and sold out by the time I made up my mind). Well, everything happens for a reason because I love this Ecoté brand clutch even more since it comes with a removable chain (must for mommies) and at a fraction of the price (imagine!).
And while at it, I got this leopard print safari jacket from the same brand. Cute outfit, don't you think?
