A LOT of my clothing is from GAP and Banana Republic.. I would say 80% of my work wardrobe. I love the way their clothes fit and I am normally a smaller size there which always helps! HA! I love the sales they have and can always find a steal of a deal on their round racks. I have been shopping at GAP for years and find that the clothes also last a super long time.. I guess my post about neon stuck because I found a few cute things on Monday night that were quite BRIGHT! My best friend was two days away from giving birth so we had a special date and of course- worked in some retail therapy. Here are some of my new purchases! 
I snagged this bright cardigan for $14.99!!! Reg. 69.99! WOO!
Wearing this purple pleated skirt today with high heels.. $12.99 reg. $59.99!
I need more tops for underneath suit jackets and funky sweaters so I picked this cowel neck number up for only $14.99 (regularly 39.99.. I LOVE SALES!)
I always get in less trouble when I shop for James ;) $14.99!
I love costume jewelry.. I like shiny things but obviously can't have everything "the real deal"... I was at a trade show in High River last weekend and the gal was selling really sparkly high end costume jewelry- for a really reasonable price. For every one thing you brought regular price you got another for 50% off.. This right hand ring was regularly $40 and I got it for $20 after purchasing some earrings.. amongst other things.. It REALLY sparkles in real life. I like how it goes from smallest to biggest crystals :)
These shiny numbers were $28

I clearly forgot to mention one huge spring trend that I have been seeing EVERYWHERE! NEON!!! There is a purse at Holt Renfrew I have been eying for a while now and I feel as though I need to invest in some bright hues to liven up my spring wardrobe. What do you think of this bright idea?:
Highlighter green is all over the scene .Whatcha think? Walk past BCBG lately? They are all over the neon trend and I am LOVING IT! I have always loved to dress in color and stray away from black. I think this is a fun trend for the upcoming warmer weather. These looks are from Oscar de la Renta.
From Left: Nanette Lepore, Rag & Bone, Peter Som
Luxury shoe brand, Casedei.
LOVING this "Fluoro" satchel that comes in vibrant yellow, green, hot pink, orange or blue... I spied it at Holt Renfrew for $175.... SHINY!
Love the neon pink in the top left... Not so sold on the bottom left GREEN shoe.
I AM in need of a wrap watch.. Love these!!!! From La Mer
I find I have to stay the hell away from H&M... Every time I go in I leave with SOMETHING!!! We recently got one downtown and I try to stay away!
I've seen a few bloggers taking basic chains and painting them with neon nail polish- it ends up looking awesome!

Neon rainbow eyeshadow ? I love rainbows so I'm bias

Neon color blocking is a huge trend as well as you can see from these bags

Unique Diaper Cakes!

I just recently hosted my best friend's baby shower- you can view some photos here- but forgot to mention the incredible and unique diaper cake I had made for her! I wanted something a bit different and a gal on my Facebook page began posting some "Colcy Creations" of different diaper cakes she had constructed. WOW! So whimsical and personalized... I had a really busy week and didn't have time to assemble something like this. I was so thankful for Debi and her beautiful creation. Feel free to contact me for her contact information or check out her Facebook page HERE. Below are some photos of the cake she made for me and a few of her other amazing creations!:
I had a quad made for Shannon except she had a bunny theme for her nursery so there was a bunny riding the quad. The wheels are diapers and I like how there is a little description of what all is included in the cake between the wheels. aka. what size diapers, etc.
Cute back. The middle portion is a container that goes in the dishwasher for soothers, bottle pieces etc so they are not flying around when you turn your dishwasher on.
I LOVE frogs so this trike is right up my alley! Great for a neutral theme or if you don't know the sex
Boy trike and I believe she does motorcycles too!
a PLANE! How amazing are these?!
I like how she uses the socks as handlebars.


Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a great week.. I'm glad the weather is finally starting to feel like SPRING which of course- makes me want to shop and update my wardrobe a bit for the upcoming season. I have done a tad bit of shopping in the past week and thought I would share with you some of my new purchases! I had to get a prescription at Super Store which of course took 20 minutes which of course led me into the Joe clothing section... Man I love their stuff! My girlfriend Courtney really got me into their clothing and it is great quality and fashionable for such an economic price. Here are some new items I picked up from here and there. Have a fabulous weekend!
Picked up this springy plaid top for only $19 and had a ton of compliments on it at work :)
This dress is SO comfortable omg... It is a slight bit tighter fitting than it appears and fits really well in the boobies. I love the deep pockets and it has one of my favorite colors- coral! I paired this dress with sky-high heels and navy trench for work this week and had a ton of compliments AGAIN! Thanks Joe.. only $29 too!
I picked up this Joe Fresh trench at Super Store on Saturday too.. Only $29!!! It goes great with the above dress too. It fits awesome and I also purchased the black one. I really needed a few more light spring coats for work. LOVE IT!
On Sunday James and I spent nearly an entire day shopping... and didn't kill each other! It's a new recorddd! It makes me SO happy when all of the gardening and patio furniture is being displayed at stores- you know what that means.... :)
Found these flats at Winners for $29.99
One can never have too many pairs of shoes, right?
$4.99 from Winners. I like the shimmery tones.

Recent Purchases!

Oy if there were only more hours in the day.. Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I wanted to share with you a few pieces that I purchased in Hawaii and some that I have bought as of late... I've been working so hard and much lately that I figured I needed a bit of a treat. Right? RIGHT! Happy Friday everyone and I hope that you treat yourself this weekend :)
Love this hand painted trucker hat I got in Kauai at Hanalei Bay for $22
I got this mother of pearl, quartz, fresh water pearl and other stone necklace from a market in South Kihei, Maui. The jeweler had some beautiful, really good quality pieces and this one stood out for me. The three balls on the end when it is hanging REALLY shine. She had a sale on this one from $56 to $23 so I snagged a great deal.
Trying to capture the shine on this one. I think it will match a lot of stuff!
Club Monaco.. $99 reg. $199.. LOVE my new J LO sweater ;)
This cozy guy was only $39 on from $189! Comfy and warm
