    Sunday, February 26, 2012

    Of course, since last Wednesday when I was notified of my new job, all I can really think about is my new job and moving. Every spare minute has been spent lusting over new work clothes or things I'd like to get for our new home, even though we haven't found it yet. We decided it would be best for us to move April 1, so I'll be commuting an hour every day for the first two weeks, which really isn't that bad.

    But, let's get back to pretty things, shall we? If you follow me on Pintrest, you'll likely have seen these already, as I've been using it as a great inspiration board and bookmarking system.

    Office Supplies

    i-mego Retro Headphones - $99
    As a digital journalist, I'll be doing a lot of work with audio and video, which means good quality headphones are a must. These ones not only keep with my retro aesthetic, but actually got some pretty decent reviews.

    Sunny Is Power Solar Travel Charger - $35.99 via ModCloth
    I am going to be pretty mobile, so being able to charge up without having to have a plug in would be a great asset. Yes, I could just be consciousof my battery life, but sometimes things like that slip my mind.


    Tasty Trio Tiffin Box in Light Lunch - $40 from ModCloth
    In Camrose, I can take my lunch break at home without a problem, but in Edmonton it will be way too much of a headache. I love this tiffin box in my favourite colours (it's melamine!) and even though you can't microwave the sections, I don't anticipate it holding me back much. I am actually just going to go ahead and order this right now!

    Accessories 
    Soft Serve Heel in Burgundy - $60 from Modcloth

    I absolutely need shoes with low heels for those times I am on my feet all day, and these definitley fit the bill - and with a chunky heel to boot! Now if only they didn't cost an arm and a leg.
    Neap Tide Heel - $35 from Modcloth
    I would match my tiffin box! I am so in love with teal and turquoise that I'm starting to concern myself. I'm really sad these are out of stock at the moment or else I would snatch it up!

    Satchel Bag - $14.95 from H&M
    I have found out the hard way that I am way to rough to use vintage purses. This H&M purse has a cute, classic look and it still relatively small, unlike my current purse ;)


    News to Me Wallet - $30 from ModCloth
    Ok, you have to admit that this wallet just SCREAMS Laurie. Newspaper? Check. Vintage fashion? Check.  However, I don't think I could justify spending $30 on a wallet when I know I could get a handcrafted leather one from my friend KeriVLeatherworks for $40 or so. 

    Clothes

    Peplum Squad Top - $38 from ModCloth
    I am such a sucker for Peter Pan collars. I'm not sure how a peplum would look on me, however, so that is holding me back.

    Dress - $35 from H&M
    H&M is such a guilty pleasure for me. I am certainly going to keep and eye out for this dress next time I'm in the city. It looks so cure and summery.
    Dress - $35 from H&M
    This and the dress below are more dressy than the first H&M dress, but I think they'd be great for summer.
    Dress - $30 from H&M 
    I'm not so sure how I would fair with white though... I am a bit of a slob.

    Coach Tour Top in Sand - $38 from ModCloth
    More peplum! Although I think this is a little less pronounced. I typically don't like things too high up on my neck, but I'm willing to take a chance on this one.

    Rotary Phone Top - $53 from ModCloth
     I love this (surprise, teal) but a lot of reviewers say the pom-poms fall in two unfortunate spots, if you get my drift.  I'm not sure it would be worth parting with my money because I would be really quite self-conscious about that!
