My Obsession Monday: Mini Friday by JW Pei Haul

My Obsession Monday - Friday by JW Pei - 1.jpg

Who doesn’t love a good crossbody bag? Friday by JW Pei has been creepin’ up on my Instagram for a few months and I finally went ahead and ordered a few items to see if the quality lived up to how the bags looked in pictures.

Friday by JW Pei is a sister brand of JW Pei and they offer vegan leather bags incorporating recycled plastic with sustainability in mind.

The first bag that caught my eye is their Camera Bag, which is, unfortunately, all sold out. Not sure if they’re bringing it back but I’ve always wanted a camera bag, just haven’t found one that fits both the price and look that I want until this. I love that this one has a pretty chevron stitching pattern. When I got it in the mail and tested out the bag, the zipper ran very smooth. The strap is detachable and adjustable in length which makes it very versatile. I also added the tassel ornament to the order so that it can add a bit more personality to the bag.

Lace Cami & Loose Cardi

The warm weather can’t come soon enough! Even though it’s May, it’s still been so chilly here in Toronto. Seems like I’m always living in layers no matter what season it is because you can never be too sure when it comes to the Canadian weather! I came across Jean Wang’s (from Extrapetite.com) Insta story when she shared these two pieces from Abercrombie & Fitch. I haven’t shopped at A&F since I was a kid and it definitely took me by surprise. I love how versatile they are and you know I’m all about versatility.

The lace cami is such a staple and can be worn on its own or with a cardi whether you want to tuck it in or leave it out. I got this in the small because I wanted it to be a looser fit and liked it so much that I recently got two more in the satin and chiffon finish as well. For the cardigan, it is in such a soft, cozy fabric and the boxy shape makes it easy to layer on with various different outfits. This top is quite cropped so I went for the medium size so it gave a bit more length.

I bought these two items before my trip to Jamaica and wore the cami with two different outfits. I’ll be sharing some photos from my trip shortly along with the outfits that I brought with me. Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend! xx

Forever 21 Mini Shoe Haul

Forever21 Shoe Haul - Nudes.jpg

Hi Lovelies!

I’ll be traveling soon and have a few trips planned for this year! Ekkk… I’m so excited! Next month I’m going to somewhere hot (stay tuned for the reveal!) so I’ve been on the hunt for some cute shoes that I can bring along with me on the trip. Forever 21 has really been stepping up their shoe game and I’ve noticed that in recent years, they started carrying shoes with better quality and some of the styles are super cute!

Faux Leather Toe Ring Sandals in Nude ($12.90) – This one will be easy for slipping on and off by the pool or at the beach. The nude colour will match any bikini!

Faux Leather Platform Sandals in Tan ($21.99 – ON SALE) – I wanted these for the nights where we’ll be dressing up for a night out or a fancy dinner. The whole shoe is made of 100% polyurethane so humidity and water shouldn’t be an issue.

Tribal Print Toe Ring Sandals: $29.90

Lace-Up Espadrilles: $26.90

Genuine Suede Lace-Up Sandals: $39.90

How cute are these?! I wouldn’t mind having all 3 for my trip…or just to have in generally. I love them!

Faux Suede Platform Heels: $39.90

Faux Suede Mules: $29.90

Faux Suede Slides: $22.90

These shoes are a knockoff of the Mansur Gavriel ones and I love that they’re so simple and easy – all 3 heights are great for different occasions. Forever 21 just started carrying these and they’re already selling out! I wanted the light grey and the baby blue ones but they ran out of my size. Maybe they’ll bring them back when it’s ACTUALLY summer. I got the Faux Suede Mules and will probably start wearing them in the office so that I can break them in before wearing them out in the summer!

I love how the below ladies styled these shoes. Check out my Pinterest account @MyBlancCanvas for more style inspo.
