Shopping Trip to Buffalo

Yesterday we went down to the States for a day of shopping. It wasn't a very fruitful day as we had hoped for. There weren't many sales and the prices in general were similar to what they are here in Canada. I guess right now isn't sales season. Thanksgiving is when the sales really start huh? However I'm still quite happy with what I got. I picked up some much-needed basics -- long sleeves tees in all the neutral colors, tights and thigh-high socks. I got a couple pairs of opaque tights from Old Navy which surprisingly are very good, very opaque and very elastic (no flattening bum :). In the store they were $8.50, on their website they are only $6.50. And I recommend going for a size bigger so they aren't stretched too much. And since they are so elastic even in a size bigger they still feel snug not baggy.

Among the inexpensive trendy stores, I really liked Charlotte Russe. I just wish their online store shipped to Canada. While I was there, I got a dress, a sweater vest, and a pair of boots. They have some really cute boots, you should definitely check 'em out if you live close to a store.

Cowl Neck Dress $29.99

Knit Sweater $24.99

Strappy Boot $39.99
