Edward's Gray Jacket

JJ and I saw 'Twilight' last weekend. We were probably one of the last ones to see this movie. I really had no expectations going into it since we both really hated the book (but we figured we'd watch it since we read the books). Well, it wasn't much of a surprise that we both didn't like the movie. I think we pretty much laughed all the way through.

The only thing we both liked about the movie was Edward's gray jacket. It looks like it's a gray herringbone peacoat with a sky blue satin lining which pretty much matched the blue shirt Edward kept wearing with the jacket. I think the jacket will look cute on my brother but alas it's custom-made. Oh well...

He also wore a blue jacket in the movie, which was also pretty cool. After some research, I figured out that it was from G-Star (which I love!!!). Too bad it's sold out. Oh well again...

More pics below of the gray jacket below:

Note on the movie: I think they could've done better with the casting. Well, Robert Pattinson was ok as Edward. I think Kristin Stewart needs some acting lessons and whoever played Rosalie (who's supposed to be extremely gorgeous in the book) was kinda chubby in the movie (or it could just be her jacket too). Just my opinion though.

Two for Tuesdays...12/09/08

Note: Please don't misconstrue my outfit posts for narcissism...blame it on lack of inspiration or blog ideas.

I have two outfits to post today because I go to school on Tuesday and Thursday nights and I almost always change unless I'm running extremely late. For work, I decided to wear one of my favorite dresses because I haven't worn it in a while. I love the color of this dress. It might have been love at first sight. It's extremely sheer and flimsy and not quite suitable for today's cold-ish weather but I wore it anyway. Maybe that's why I currently have the sniffles. Hmmm...

Dress: Interlud
Slip: INC
Shoes: L.A.M.B.

For school, I wore my go-to outfit of jeans, boots and whatever sweater I happen to grab.

Jeans: AG
Sweater: delia*s
Boots: Charles David ($75 from last year's warehouse sale)
Hat: Urban Outfitters

Top: Ziji (I bought this top at the BDB Spring Sale and today is the first time I wore it)

Shoes: CL Very Prive in Brown Glittart

My Christmas WISH List

Emphasis on WISH. Oh where is the $6B-man?!? Santa? You out there?

1.) Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12.2 MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens

I'm giving my current camera to my brother so I need a new one. A new one means an upgraded one. I would love a Leica but since it's a little out of reach and a little impractical for me, I'd settle for this Canon. I'd even settle for just the body. I'll take care of the lenses.

2.) Bose QuietComfort 2 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

These headphones will be you best travel companion, especially on those long international flights I plan to go on. I realized today that these will be extremely useful when I go back to school full-time. No, not to tune out the teacher. It'll be helpful when I'm studying as I'm easily distracted.

That's all I can really think of. My brother and my mom will take care with the rest of my list (hopefully and thanks in advance!). If you're wondering why my list only includes electronics, well, I've got the clothes and the shoes covered. And a good friend told me to only ask for things that I like but wouldn't necessarily spend money on. =) Have a great time shopping for Christmas everyone!!!

Saks Haul - Bags

I'm not as keen about purses as I am about shoes, but at 70% off, I didn't mind buying a few bags (well, 5 actually but not all of them were for me).

Foley + Corinna Jetsetter Jr. Tote

When I first posted about the sale, JG contacted me and asked me to find her a purse. I asked her to email me pics of the bags she wanted and it so happens that Saks actually had 1 of them.

Rebecca Minkoff Market Tote in Forest

Before heading out to the sale, I asked my mom if she wanted anything and naturally she said to get her a purse. She wanted something from YSL or Chloe but all the designer handbags were gone by the time I was done with the shoes. I've seen the Market Tote before and I really liked it so I figure it'll be a good choice for my mom as well. She liked it enough for it to be an early Christmas present.

Kooba Tracy Hobo in Chocolate (shown in Brick Red)

I couldn't leave without getting a little something for me! Lol. After scouring the section for handbags, I spotted this bag underneath a huge pile of other bags. It actually looks better in person. It's a little bit heavy and yes, it's another brown bag but I lovett!

The last two bags are kept under wraps for now. JJ's not that happy with one of them (haha) but that's not the reason I'm choosing to stay mum on them. I'll post pics when the time is right.

Saks Haul - Shoes

Sorry for the long delay between posts. I didn't mean to tease you with a peek and wait a week to post the actual haul.

Before I let you in on my purchases, you can read about the whole experience on JJ's blog or you can just check out the madness from these photos.

I can't stress enough how terribly insane nor how stressful the whole experience was but I'm glad I experienced it because I have 1.) new shoes 2.) new bags 3.) Christmas present for my mom and 4.) a story to tell. I guess when all is said and done, it's the story that counts the most (at least in my opinion).

Anyway, I'll start you guys off with the shoes (coz you know it's all about the shoes).

A family pic

Scissor Girls in Purple Suede - I got these on Wednesday, the first day of the presale. JJ asked Saks the day before when the presale was going to start and the SA told her it was going to start on Thursday. I happened to stop by that afternoon and the sale had already started (apparently Saks decided to push it up a day early much to everyone's surprise). It was madness and I happened to chance upon the left side of this pair on one end of the Shoe Salon. Some girl (who happened to yell at me for touching her pile) left the right side on the other end of the Shoe Salon because the SA probably couldn't find the mate so I took it! I was lucky enough to find a pair that was my size.

Scissor Girls in Black Leather - Of all the pairs I grabbed Thursday morning (JJ and I had to go back for more), I ended up liking the same ones I already purchased the day before. I actually didn't mind so much since the looked nice on my feet (lol).

Very Prive in Brown Glittart (Tortoise Shell) - this elusive pair is my favorite! I actually almost bought these full price the week prior but I was hesitant because I thought they were a little snug. I had the SA locate a bigger size for me but no luck. I tried these on again on Wednesday night and I figure it's really not that snug, I could make it work. I asked the SA if they were on sale and he said "NO". So, I put them down and paid for the Purple Scissor Girls. Thursday morning, as we all rushed to the shoe section, I noticed these shoes were on the sale table so I immediately grabbed it. Now, it's in my closet and I'm a happy camper. Yay!
