It snowed again last night. This pretending it's not winter isn't working for me anymore. I'm dreaming of spring...warm sunshine, increased energy, tulips peeping through the soil...even rain would be fine.
The other day, my sister-in-law and I were chatting about spring dresses. We are both over the age of 40 (although I still think of her as a young thing) and we are suddenly finding ourselves wanting to try out a different style of clothing. We are craving more colour, more pretty...something fun.
We are on the hunt for new sources of vintage-style dresses that are not too expensive. Let me know if you have any favourite stores.
This month, you can get 15% off $100 plus free shipping at Betsey Johnson. Use code BJMAR1 at checkout. They also have some pretty cool high heels on sale. But I don't do high heels. I am not that coordinated. Plus, nobody ever has my size (11) so I've pretty much given up looking for shoes.
Because I know that the sun will one day shine again, even here in the Toronto area, I am also looking for new sunglasses. I have long been aware that I am wearing the same sunglasses in almost every picture of me on this blog.
I mainly wear prescription sunglasses (except in the rare moments that I bother to put in contact lenses). My prescription is strong too, so I can only wear certain styles (to accommodate the thick lenses). I have coverage for prescription eyewear under my husband's plan, but that kicks in every two years, bringing me to this summer. In the meantime, I am on the hunt for some inexpensive glasses.
I was admiring these sunglasses over on the Bonlook site. Maybe I'll go for something funky. What do you think? The only trouble is, our provincial government doesn't allow us to order prescription glasses online. Can you believe it? I would have to order these ones to wear with contact lenses.
If you are in the market for some sunglasses, Bonlook has designer sunglasses on sale. Plus, metal sunglasses are on sale -- enter the PROMO code RADIOACTIVE for 25% off today, 20% off on March 20th or 15% off on March 21st. I noticed that you get a $10 coupon the first time you sign up too.
What kind of wardrobe are you craving for this spring? What are your go-to shops?
