Studded Treat

I picked up a studded black miniskirt by LaRok as part of my ShopBop indulge a few weeks ago. As with many of my purchases, I didn't intend on buying a black miniskirt. It just happened that this was such a killer deal, and such a wardrobe staple that I had to grab it. I've paired it here as a daytime look, but this skirt can easily take you into the wee hours of the night.

What are your wardrobe indulges and must-haves? What are some items, if on sale, you just can't resist?
Bow-tie Blouse, Kensie
Black Studded Miniskirt, LaRok
White Leather Handbag, Rabeanco
White Leather Slingbacks, from Hong Kong
Gold Bangles, custom made from Hong Kong
Watch, Casio Baby G-Shock

I'm in love with studs, too! And those white shoes are AMAZING. I need to take my outfit photos outdoors. These are nice.

I kind of end up buying any shoe I like when they're on sale... I'm a shoe person :) But I must say, after seeing your nude heels, I've suddenly realized how much I need them for the lighter-colored dresses and skirts I have.

Really like the studded skirt! I can tell it will be reallyl versatile. Oh and re: Barcelona markets, I've come across two so far, but I'm not entirely sure if they're touristy, because the arts&crafts there seemed almost a bit too well-made.

Sorry to comment again, but just wanted to let you know, I have an award waiting for you on my blog :)

That studded skirt is about 5,000 times better in real life. I'm NOT exaggerating!

You look so fashionable. In EVERY shot that I see of you.

That's a fabulous skirt by the way. And the Kenzie blouse. LOVE.

BTW, I know this sounds incredibly rude... but do you work for a fashion retailer or something? I can only afford designer items every once in a blue moon and I am so jealous you seem to be dressed to the nines all the time! How do you do it?

I ask that question in the nicest of ways possible online :) You know I'm a big fan ;)

Thanks for all the sweet comments - i do love those white shoes and they seem to match everything.

@Haute-Shopper - sounds lovely - i can't wait to go to Barcelona!

@VanCityAllie - ha thx - i wish i worked i fashion! i work in advertising as a digital planner/strategist. I am blessed to be able to visit Hong Kong frequently and my mom is based there. Designer sales are amazing - with way deeper discounts than anything in vancouver. Otherwise, i keep my eyes out online for discounts. =D

That's awesome! I'm so jealous. I would LOVE to go to Hong Kong for shopping. Maybe one day :)
