Soo remember when I said I entered a red dress contest from one of the biggest polyvore groups? Well out of exactly 1340 sets submitted, I won FIRST place :D. Yes it seems trivial but I don't win many things in life LOL.

In other news, I came back from New York City! Overall an awesome trip. HOT HOT weather. I actually got a heat stroke on Monday when I walked around the city. The people I was with were more into sight seeing instead of shopping. 3 days of intense sight-seeing: Madame Tussaud's, Bodies: The Exhibition, NBC studios, Broadway show : Avenue Q, just to name a few. I walked a shit load, to the point of no fun. I loved loved loved my trip to Woodbury Premium Outlets. It's an infamous place 45 minutes away from NYC. If you haven't heard of it, it's like an outdoor mall of outlets of big brand names: Chanel, Dior, DKNY, Burberry, Versace, Coach, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, D&G, etc...THE LIST GOES ON to 220 outlets. Honestly, it's heaven. Even guys have a blast there.

The sad part was I only bought 2 things there: a coach bag which I got for 163$ including tax (originally 348$ excluding tax) and a double breasted black blazer from FCUK for 81$ including tax (originally 187$ excluding tax). Andrea said we were gonna go back to Woodbury this thursday (2 days ago) but stuff came up and we went back to Montreal. I was hurt because I put my sexy Versace loafers on hold. And I was going to buy them but I'm like well I'll just get it on thursday. It was an unfulfilling trip.

So for another contest, I designed another set with a white dress from ASOS. The dress also comes in navy and in pink. I love this dress, the ruching detail on the draping sleeves and in the center gives the dress a lot more personality. The great part is that it is CHEAPPP!

One of my 2 favourite parts of my set were the Valentino Black And White Satin Clutch With Rosette And Beading Embellishments. Look at the amazing detail on that, everything is so nicely woven together! A true piece of art. Ahh Valentino, you never disapoint. Also, I LOVE the late Alexander McQueen's off-white and black peep-toe pump. It's interesting how the stripes gather at the side of the shoes. Beautiful. If you were going to have to settle for the shoes, I would probably go with Aldo's similar but still  sexy peep-toe pump:

Just Another Day in Manhattan

I love love love prep wear. A classy, feminine look ...always demands respect. Thus far, this is my favorite set! Hope you feel the same way. I love Yves Saint-Laurent; the necklace is adorable. I also really want to own the fragrance Cinema by YSL. Check out Cinema's review on Fragrantica!

Check the brogues from Aldo, the neutral color is definitely versatile.

The trademark Hamilton bag from Michael Kors is also coming out with other colors for the Fall Season. The Hamilton bag is another derivation of the classic Birkin and Kelly bag by Hermès. Know the difference! (If you don't click on the link to read). Personally, I'd much rather own the Birkin than the Kelly, but of course I don't have $7 000 - $50 000 to own one myself.
Anyways back to Michael Kors, I'm planning to get that one because I like the dual colors on the bag (and it's on sale), but the competition is also between the navy Fall's cement version, but the latter two are obviously more expensive since it's made in leather.
