HAUL: Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Guess, Sephora...

Hey guys!
Yesterday I went to Toronto with Charles and did some much anticipated shopping. Our main goal of the day was to go to the place Charles bought my engagement ring from and pick out our wedding bands. We successfully found wedding bands we both love, but are waiting to purchase them as it will take a couple weeks to custom make them. Mine looks basically like my engagement ring, minus the center stone (i.e., diamonds along the band...very classic).

I saved my money for this trip because I wanted to buy some Chanel sunglasses and a Louis Vuitton bag. I have NEVER bought anything from Chanel or Louis Vuitton. I have never even set foot in any store of that caliber so I was extremely excited to go shopping in Yorkville/Bloor area of Toronto. Unfortunately once I got to Chanel, I couldn't justify spending $675 on the Chanel sunglasses that I liked, so I will have to wait purchases some sunglasses later. My budget for sunglasses was $400 tops. They do have sunglasses in that price range, but I always found something about them that I didn't quite like. The $675 ones are beautiful...the style number 5132H and they have pearls on each of the sides with "Chanel" printed along the side as well. I wanted the black framed ones with the grey fade throughout the lens. I really want them *sigh*... I ended up getting my Louis Vuitton bag at the LV store inside Holt Renfrew. I've never been to a Holt Renfrew and as soon as I walked in I felt like I didn't belong. Everyone looked like they had a ton of money and did this everyday, whereas I probably will never buy another LV bag as long as I live haha. One lady even had a purse puppy and she bumped into Charles and did this snotty look and little hand gesture/wave to apologize instead of actually saying sorry... I hate rude people. Even with that I had an amazing experience and such an awesome day shopping with Charles. I ended up meeting up with my brother and his fiance and taking them out to lunch which was really fun.

Here are some pictures I took! Now that I have a really nice purse I want to do an updated "What's in my purse" post.
Louis Vuitton: My brand new Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy 35 ♥

Chanel: Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel "Bronze Universel"
(I loveee this stuff and it smells so good!)

Guess: Bracelet watch

Lush: Lip Scrub in "Bubblegum" and Seanik Shampoo Bar
(I've never used a lip scrub before which is weird because my lips always get flaky. This stuff is AMAZING at de-flaking your lips and making them incredibly smooth. Also, you can lick your lips after using this and it tastes sooo good! It is basically just sugar so you can easily make this at home. This is my second Seanik Shampoo Bar and it leaves my hair so shiny and full of body. My favourite shampoo EVER)

Bath and Body Works: I picked up a few hand sanitizers to put in my purse and to bring in my lunch bag at work.

Sephora: I had a 20% coupon to Sephora which, obviously, I HAD to use...LOL I picked up a backup of Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Pencil in "Zero"(this is my favourite eye pencil EVER) and a bottle of Versace Bright Crystal perfume. I needed a new perfume and was debating between picking up this or Chanel Chance eau Fraiche, and decided to get the Versace one. I was currently using Givenchy Hot Couture and Juicy Viva La Juicy.

Victoria's Secret: The Eaton Centre just got a Victoria's Secret! I've never been to VS (as they aren't readily available in Canada) and I absolutely LOVE their bras! They are extremely comfortable and flattering. The best fitting bras I have ever had.

Forever 21: I actually didn't get this at the F21 store in Toronto, I ordered it online. The F21 store was soooo busy that I just did a quick walk through, said forget it, and left. I was sad cuz this is obviously one of my fave stores :(Anyways, I thought this would be a cute dress for New Years Eve...unfortunately, it barely covers my bottom so I have to wear leggings when I wear this *sigh*

I also got some new Lululemon yoga pants and sweater, a long sleeve plain black shirt and socks from H&M. All of these are for work, so I didn't bother featuring them, but they are in the bags in the first picture.

Ugg Black Boots
Forever 21 Black Leggings
H&M Long Sweater Dress
Forever 21 Black & Gold Belt
House of Harlow Black Resin 14k Gold Necklace
American Eagle Aviators

Forever 21 Cream Trench Coat

Going to Toronto: You couldn't even see the CN tower because it was EXTREMELY foggy

Driving back home on the Gardner Expressway


  1. Lucky you! Ive never been to a Chanel or LV store myself. The speedy is a class and every girl must have that bag! I hope I get one sometime.

    OMG you've never been to a VS? I thought they had a lot of the stores in Canada. You would lovee their PINK line sweats.

  2. Love your haul, you got some really amazing things! Those sunglasses with the pearls on the sides are gorgeous, I didn't even know they existed!I can't wait the try Chanel's Soleil Tan De Chanel, hopefully I'll pick it up soon, I keep hearing really good things about it. Enjoy your new stuff ;)

  3. Awesome haul! I only go to Victoria's Secret for their fragrances. You should try the Pink By Victoria's Secret Sheer Fragrance! It's awesome! If your VS has it, do get it. If not, then I'll buy you one.

  4. Greattt haul! :) Looks like u guys had a lot of fun. I think it's so cool that you're down to earth about being in Louis Vuitton, maybe not ever buying another LV bag again, etc. I've been toying with getting a Speedy 30 myself, but would also feel "out of place" in the store. Plus, I worry the bag is maybe too flashy for me since I'd have in the back of my head how much it costs. Haha.
    How do u feel carrying the bag around now that u bought it?

  5. isnt Toronto the best?! My hubby is from there....great pics xo

  6. Wow, amazing haul! The bras look gorgeous! I've never been to VS )=

  9. Great and amazing purchases!!!!! All the items are tres chic. I could write a comment on every item, lol.

  10. Sounds like a fabulous shopping trip with a HUGE haul of great stuff (christmas came early for you!)
    Love the speedy 35, I've had one for years and it's seriously a classic staple in my wardrobe.
    Don't be intimidated by's actually a really ordinary store once you've been through it a few times. Yes the brands are high end..but it's just "stuff" and those who shop there aren't any cooler/better than people shopping at Sears. At least that's what I tell myself! LOLOL

  11. Awesome haul! I want a lv bag but in time I suppose haha. Glad you got to hang out with your brother!

  12. What a haul!! Shopping!!

  17. Girl u so lucky! all these in only one day shopping? enjoy it!!! I'm interested in the Soleil Tan Chanel, wot is it exactly? could u post a pic of u with it on?

  18. Thank you everyone for your comments!!!

    @PrincessLisax3 - I have a PINK in my hometown...just no actual Victoria Secret's nearby :( I'm now going to have to take many trips to TO so that I can get all my undergarments there! I love it

    @Jacquelyn - I'm going to have to try it out next time I go to Toronto!

    @Gigi - I've had the bag two days and still haven't carried it out of my house yet... LOL I'm going out for lunch this week with my girls so that will probably be it's first outing.

    @Get Gawjus! - I'll be sure to post an OOTD of the dress...won't be wearing it until New Years Eve mind you...unless I find something better for the occasion then I will wear it early :) lol

    @Nikosmommy - I'm going to tell myself that if/when I ever go back! LOL

    @YASMINE - It's a cream bronzing base. I just posted an FOTD using it (November 15) if you are interested. You can't really see it on my skin cuz my pictures suck. It is now a staple bronzer of mine so you will be seeing it in more FOTDs to come.

  19. Ahh, I'm crazy jealous! It looks like you had a lot of fun!

    I know what you mean about the Holt Renfrew thing. And I know EXACTLY what you mean about rude people. I hate RUDE people. I might be a hypocrite because sometimes I'm rude to friends and stuff, but they know how I am and that I joke, but whenever I'm out and about, I'm never rude to strangers, I always try and be polite. The other day I got into this huge thing because this girl bumped into my mother (on PURPOSE btw). Ughh, gets me so mad thinking about that, I'm sorry your boyfriend had to go through that with that rude lady!

    But amazingggggg haul! Like I said I'm crazy jealous!

    There's actually a new F21 opening in my mall near me, and it's 2 levels, and I'm pretty sure it's going to be a lot bigger than the one outside of the Eaton Centre!

  20. Glad you enjoyed our city! I love toronto but sometimes I forget its beauty. The shampoo bar is a cool concept, and I liked it at first but after a while I found it drying out my hair and it took a while for my hair to get back to normal.

  21. Looks like you got a lot of great stuff!

    I'm obsessed with Victoria's Secret. I usually go to the one in Yorkdale since it's bigger than the one in the Eaton Centre. I absolutely love their stuff, it fits so well and there are so many colours!

  22. I love Chanel Tan Soleil! It last forever since it's a big pot.

  23. Amazing outfits!!! You look HOT!

  24. Hello!

    xoxo :)
