Summit

Nothing is better than a little shopping trip with mom. While some people like to keep it simple for something like shopping, I see it as an excuse to get out and about. Why not dress up too? 
Winnipeg might not have ocean views, but sometimes you can find little pretty areas like this to take outfit shots around.

My neutral/monotone outfit features this back-button dress from LalaMagic. I love surprise details on seemingly simple dresses - although I'm not entirely sure I would even classify the front of this dress as plain. I think the subtle lace bust and pleated skirt make for the perfect balance of interest.
It's about that time for my oxford flats to come out. I think they will still be around for this coming fall but not so much as in the last few years.

& What did I get from my shopping trip?
Well, I had a Sephora gift card from my birthday (Thanks sis) so I decided to go with liquid foundation, primer and last but not least - the new Lady Gaga Perfume - FAME Black Fluid.
I really like it because it's different from all my other perfumes. Black Fluid has a  richer, spicier scent to it while still remaining quite feminine.

  2. That dress is gorgeous, especially from the back. And you have such amazing looking hair. Last time I went clothes shopping I wore a dress that fastened from the back. I forgot that my boyfriend has to zip me in and out of it so in every shop I ended up twisting my arm in painful waysin the changing room trying to get dressed and undressed! Guessing as you went with mum not boyfriend you had some help. I have totally learnt my lesson and next time I am only going in clothes I can get out of quickly. :D
