the wait pays off...

So Friday not only marked the first day of October, but also the day I visited Envy to claim my Paige skinny cargos! For the past month I've been paying towards them on lay away: the shopaholic's source for enabling expensive taste!

In late August the girls at Envy convinced me to try on the J Brand Houlihans and the Paige cargo skinnies. I was playing with fire because of course I had to go and fall in love!

Although I appreciate how great Houlihans look on other stylish ladies, they weren't for me. I loved the darker olive shade of the stretchy Paige pair. I know I really splurged on this one, but skinny cargos really topped my list of fall must haves!  And I hear they will be sticking around for spring... but I tend to go with what looks good, and what feels comfortable! And I will tell you that these are incredibly comfy!

The Outfit

  • Faux leather jacket- Winners (Toronto, Sept '10)

  • Brown tank- Club Monaco (Halifax, March '07)

  • Skinny cargos- Paige Premium Denim- Envy (SJ, Oct '10)

  • Snake print heels- Guess- Manchester Shoe Salon (SJ, Feb '09)

  • Hat- Urban Outfitters (Montreal, June '10)

  • Necklace- Splurge (Halifax, Feb '07)
That night I was heading uptown to Katie's apartment for a girl's night of drinks and dancing. We found ourselves dancing at the Canterbury Lounge, followed by very tastey hotdogs on the street corner!

I know of a few girls that did, but did anyone else take advantage of Envy's tax free weekend? If so, do share what you purchased!

Coincidently, Kate of O My Heart! is wearing skinny cargos too in her blog post today! Check out her outfit by clicking here.
