Both Mark and my mom nagged me when I came back to Vancouver that I should’ve bought more clothes in China. And I guess they were right, because the three things I bought from Aritiza so far could’ve gotten me another 10 pieces from China I bet *sigh.* Nevertheless, my clothing haul can finally be displayed for all to see! The only thing I wish I could find in Canton (aka Guangzhou) was more no-branded long sleeve clothing. Yes it was boiling hot over there, but I’m a wimp when it comes to being in an air conditioned mall and its definitely a necessity to bundle up in Vancouver.
If you’ve seen my previous outfit posts, I have posted two looks with outfits I got from China. The first look was this two piece striped top and bottom; this is super fun to wear as it has a nautical vibe and I can mix and match with different clothes. The other look was this casual, shoulder exposing shirt and white shorts that was super comfortable. Sadly, the sun has temporarily disappeared in Vancouver so I have to wait a while until I can go out in short shorts again!
The little nerdy kid inside of me have been wanting a Baymax from Big Hero 6 for a while, and THOUGH I couldn’t find a white shirt with just Baymax’s face on it, this shirt was still adorable nonetheless. Plus, it costed around $10 CAD? This shirt is wide and short so I have been pairing this with skinny coloured jeans.
This is the navy blue version of the white shorts I wore in my Beijing Lu outfit (aka the blue top + white short combination.) These shorts were around $4 CAD and looks like a fluffy skirt, too cute to pass up at that price point!
You can never have too many LBD’s and I was sold at the bow tie at the collar. It also comes with a cord for around the waist…it’s in my closet somewhere…
Mark spotted this in some side alley store, which are the best stores in my opinion! This faux leather, pink bag is super cute and I always love oversized bows on anything!
I posted a picture of these sandals in my Beijing Lu outfit as well; these were surprisingly comfortable and I could walk all day in them. The only bad part was that I only bought one pair of sandals and that was the ONLY pair of shoes I bought during my trip #FirstWorldProblems. The coloured straps on these suited most of the clothes I wear (mostly the mint haha.)
When I was at Chimelong Safari Park, I got a bit of a cold and then I got colder. So when Mark and I was in a mall, I stopped by Uniqlo and picked up this striped long sleeve top. It was so hard to find an inexpensive long sleeve piece of clothing. It’s SO prone to wrinkles… and I probably won’t iron it.
One of my favourite clothing I bought was this pink dress. I would probably never get this in a thousand years until Mark told me to try it on so I did, and I surprisingly like it! I like wearing pink; it isn’t really my style, but yet it’s quite fun to wear and not something I would find in Vancouver. This is such a great dress for events though, such as a wedding, bridal shower etc…so *cross fingers I get invited to girly events.*
I also have a black cardigan somewhere as well, but it’s too normal to be posted here so I’ll just skip that. I think I have filled my dress shopping quota for now, and I think I could’ve afforded to haul a bit more, given how great the prices were. I feel so bad while I was shopping at the sales here from Zara, Aritizia…trying to look for some pants that aren’t jeans (got any suggestions?)
