Sunday Funday!

So happy that this is a long weekend and I don't have to work tomorrow!  I think between Easter and Memorial Day is one of the longest stretches without a holiday during my entire work year lol.  Glad it's over!  This week, I was still nursing myself towards the beginning.  But mid way through the week, I felt better again and was able to go back to the gym.  I picked up where I left off last week and completed the second week of Month 17 workouts.  I'm really crossing my fingers that I won't get sick again in another couple weeks.  Frankly, getting sick is getting old!!

Monday 5/23 - Rest

Tuesday 5/24 - Rest, however I went out to a casual dinner and here's what I wore - love it when I discover matching shirt and shoes from different sources lol:

Shoes:  Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 in venom/turbo green

Thursday 5/26 - I was going to go to the gym, but slept through my alarm.  Had happy hour plans after work so I took it off as another rest day.  =P  But here's what I wore to work:

Top:  Banana Republic Contrast Tie-Front Blouse (I switched out the black tie that the white blouse comes with, with the white tie from the pink blouse in the same style which I also own)
Bottom:  Zara Lace Skirt

Friday 5/27
What I did:  Strength #3, followed by 30 minutes on the treadmill.

I wore my Vince Leather Scuba Jacket in grenadine over it, and the Fendi Monster Bag Bugs Chain Clutch.

Sunday 5/29 - Rest.  But I went to brunch at Perch in downtown.  Here's what I wore:

Top:  Aiko Tee
Bag:  Fendi Monster Bag Bugs Chain Clutch because I love it, and because I hadn't taken my cards out of it yet from last night lol.

And that's my week!  So happy to have another day to chillax this weekend.  Now, time for Game of Thrones!

Louboutin Lady Peep Vulcano & Confusa Pumps!

Well it sure does feel like I'm buying a lot of Louboutin shoes nowadays lol.  I guess it's true.  These shoes are clearly addicting!  But I've also sold a couple pairs too!  Hahaha.  Sometimes I go on sites like ebay, Poshmark, Tradesy, etc. and browse what they have for sale.  And sometimes I just happen to find really really good deals!  Like if somebody wants to sell brand new Louboutin shoes in rare prints for $350, then I'm all for it.  That's like sample sale prices and I don't even have to stand in line!  Not to mention I heard Louboutin sample sales in NYC are invite-only and notoriously hard to get in.  These sites are hit or miss, of course, and take a lot of patience and some luck too.  But I'm in no hurry.  I just buy what I like when I see them for good prices!  So here are the latest 2 pairs I got.

First I got another pair of Lady Peep pumps, this time in Python Vulcano print in fushia/black.  I've actually seen these before.  They came out in 2015 so they are not that old at all.  I've always loved this print!  I didn't even hesitate buying them for $350!  Here are the newest python Lady Peeps on sale on Louboutin's website as they retail for $1595.  So $350 is quite a deal.  They are size 36 as usual.

I think this print is so cool!  You wouldn't think this paint splatter graffiti type of print would look good over python material but I really like it.  It actually reminds me of like cherry blossoms for some reason lol.  I like the fushia splash of color in the otherwise dark background too.

Also love that the shoe is outlined in black, and the peep toe is black as well:

When they are on, they actually look lighter than I imagined.  From the front view, they are actually mostly white.  They are not as "loud" as you would think.

Ok, so the second pair I'm super happy with are the Confusa Leopard T-Strap Pump.  Even though they are sold out, there are a couple good reviews on the Saks website.  The reviews say that these are some of the most comfortable Louboutin shoes and I tend to agree.  They are 100mm, and the arch is pretty low.  I do feel I could walk forever in them.  They are very very lightweight.

They are kinda crazy looking with the white and black and leopard print!  But I love them...

The part where the straps attach to the thin white leather is rather fragile.  I have to be super careful when putting them on/taking them off, because I'm afraid I might accidentally tear it out!

It's hard to see what they look like without being worn.  So here they are!

I'm pretty happy with my little Louboutin collection so far!  I definitely don't *need* anymore.  But I'm pretty sure I'll continue buying them.  My bf is super annoyed he started my Louboutin buying spree by giving me my first pair as my birthday present lol.  Well.. what can I say!  They really are addicting!

Sunday Funday!

So this is not going to be a very exciting post lol.  I don't know what's wrong with me, but I got sick again this week!  I don't know if it was still the same thing from a few weeks ago or a new virus  But I'm super annoyed.  I still had some lingering symptoms from being sick last month.  But I was stable for a few weeks so I thought it was all good.  Then early this week it all came back.  So I just went to the gym once and played tennis today which was the extent of my workouts this week.  It's just really important that I recover ASAP since the Memorial Day long weekend is coming up and the last thing I want to be is sick lol.  Therefore I'm not pushing my body at all!  I didn't take a rest week between month 16 and 17 of Get Glutes anyway so I will consider this a rest week.

Unfortunately, less workouts = less outfits.  But here we go!

Monday 5/16 - Rest
