I did a bit of shopping recently so am sharing a few new purchases, some of which you've already seen on the blog (linked below) and others that are even newer and I haven't yet worn.
Thanks for watching! xo
Things I mentioned:
Another haul video with a bunch of stuff from Asos (eep!), Forever 21, Urban Planet, Winners & more. I filmed this haul and it ended up being much longer than eight minutes is because I included a bunch of home decor items I've recently purchased. Since it was too long, I cut that stuff out and will upload it in a separate video :)
* Peplum skirt (sale!)
* High-low chiffon top (on sale now! Lucky you, grrr for me!)
A few more things I mentioned...

I finally got around to editing my Las Vegas haul video. I picked up a ton of stuff, hence why the video is a little long (and I blabbed on a bit, obviously) but I did something silly for the first time: added in some out-takes at the end of the video (ha!). Enjoy.
* Vegas recap.
For my second video as the Place d'Orleans Fashion Vlogger, I pull together some wardrobe classics, or things that you can look for while out shopping that can easily mix and match with things you likely already own.
Stay tuned for more videos (specifically on the Place d'Orleans FB page), the next one will be out mid-November!
Here is my first vlog as the Place d'Orleans Fashion Vlogger and I couldn't be more excited. We filmed a b-roll (the little introduction part) a few weeks ago and the marketing company did a great job putting it together.
I will be filming two videos per month and will be sure to post them here once they go live.
For this video, I focused on four categories for fall trends:
* Pattern (polka dots, leopard)
* Shape (peplum, envelope)
* Colour (hunter green, burgundy, rose gold)
* Texture (waxed, lace)
Stay tuned for more videos (specifically on the Place d'Orleans FB page), the next one will be out at the end of the month!
So as I mentioned on Friday, I was going to a huge annual neighbour hood garage sale in a ritzy part of town last Saturday. The 'event' starts at 8am but often times people put stuff out earlier. I was up super early and out of my apartment by 7:30am. I went to the bank to grab some cash (I told myself I would spend no more than $40), hit up Tim Hortons for a bagel BELT (bacon-egg-lettuce-tomato, holla!) and I was on my way. I got there around 8am and it was jammed. I found free parking about six blocks away from the action and was off.
It was a warm, sunny, beautiful day and it was busy. Thousands upon thousands of people ev-ery-where. I spent about three hours shopping before deciding to call it a day. I was pretty disappointed that I only bought three items, but after battling the crowds for that long and barely turning up with anything (and sore feet), I felt like just heading home for a nap and some down time with my book.
I picked up three pieces of jewelery, as you can see in the above photo:
The necklace is from Suzy Shier, a Canadian store that sells cheap clothes and accessories. It was being sold by some women who had boxes and boxes of brand-new packaged costume jewelery (as if they purchased stuff from stores that never sold). It was a dig-through-and-scrounge kind of system and I was happy to find this gem of a necklace as it was one of two they had. I remember seeing this necklace last year at the store, wanting it, but not wanting to fork out the $9, so I passed. I picked up this baby for $1.
The 'charm' bracelet was another item being sold by the 'ladies with a million boxes' and it was the only one I came across (mind you, when you're digging through hundreds of pieces of jewelery, you certainly don't see everything!). It's so pretty and I love the toggle clasp and it was also $1.
The last item is this funky broach that I picked up from a woman selling stuff on her front lawn. She said it was her mothers' and it was at least 10 years old. I was torn when she said $2 and I (ha!) negotiated her down to $1.
And that is everything. Yes. In three hours I spent $3 which was a little good and a little disappointing I didn't find more but considering the tickets I have now incurred, probably for the best!
