I really think animal print is here to stay! So go ahead, invest in something that you’ve had you eye on and rock it! Some people are intimidated of animal prints, because of the “bold” look they carry. But really, pairing leopard, zebra, python can be just a touch of your outfit! Add sequins, pearls or ruffle to soften the look, or pull out your leather jacket and 5 inch pumps for a hot glam appeal! You really can’t go wrong! Come on, I dare you! ;)

Today’s pick of the day is what the whole world is talking about! TOMS! During our Girls shopping trip this past weekend, all of us had to try them on! And buy some! There are so many fun facts behind these amazing kicks!

Have YOU tried them on yet? Have you read about what the whole buzz is about? Do you know the behind story about each pair of shoe? Let me tell you! Well actually their website tells it best!

“TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we’re all about. The TOMS mission transforms our customers into benefactors, which allows us to grow a truly sustainable business rather than depending on fundraising for support.”

I think that is a pretty good reason to go out and get a pair for you, your husband, your sister, your mom, your dad, your best friend! And everyone you know!! One of the most comfortable pairs of shoes you can buy with orthotic support as well as fun styles from completely casual to sparkly fun! Click on the picture for the latest Toms!

While we’re getting all emotional over shoes… you might as well watch this video too! ::Holding in the tears!::

Comfortably Spring

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! My weekend was a super busy one! Saturday was a go, go, go, go, SHOP!! kinda day.  We definitely lived up to the saying “shop till you drop”! It was a successful day! One of my favorite purchases was a coral & white sequined striped top from J-Crew. It screams Spring!! J-Crew is all about the fun, flirty, colorful, sparkly details aka: sequins this Spring Season! Not only playful and fun, but their whole Spring Collection is so comfortably styled for a night on the town, or a walk in the park! Check out more looks at JCrew.com

It’s the weekend!

A little late, but Happy Friday!!! How cute is this Happy Friday photo from Oh Joy ? Love the shoes and the carpet! Check out the shoes she’s wearing in her Friday post today!

Today was a little crazy, last minute we gave away two tickets to the Bon Jovi Concert in Vancouver on our facebook page! Lucky Shanna was too excited for words! When I talked to her over the phone all I could hear were “smiles”. Congratulations again, have so much fun tonight!

Don’t forget about our Urban Wall Decal- “Keep Calm and Carry On” Giveaway on Monday!

Have a fun and safe weekend! I’m off to Seattle for a much needed girly shopping trip… 7 girls and 2 babies! It’s going to be fun!

DIY-Braided Hex Nut Bracelet

I was flipping through Pinterest and found this “Do it yourself” Braided Hex Nut Bracelet! I love it AND I definitely want to make one! Next step: I asked my husband if he had any hex nut bolts- in sparkling gold and some pretty string around the shop! He looked at me and shook his head, while laughing at me. Sooo, I’ll be making a trip to Home Depot to find some hex nut bolts and string, to make myself this fun bracelet!  Anyone want to join me?

Let’s Get Personal!

Today was a little bit of a crazy day in the cyber world aka: the server was done for most of the day. So I thought I would do some spring cleaning with my Facebook and Twitter accounts by making them a little bit more personal. Including adding my name to my twitter avatar and new fresh picture!

It’s funny how it hasn’t even been 2 months and I’m already in the mood for a new look! Typical! Don’t be surprised to see new things popping up, or coming off the blog! The good things is it’s always “bigger and better”. Hopefully you like it!

Come join me on Facebook & Twitter @doctorscloset and lets get a littler “personal, personal” (sing to the tune- “lets get physical, physical…”) Okay I’m officially a dork. ;)

In my Gym Bag

Today’s post is all about being fit and looking good! While putting this post together, I realized that pretty much every West Coast- ‘Vancouver girl’ will have very similar items in her gym bag! We all own a pair of Lululemon groove pants, at least 2 TNA hoodies, and take pride in any other item that comes from  our beloved “home made” Lululemon store!! We are a Yoga going, Sea Wall running, fit group of girls! Let me let you in on our West Coast Uniform. It’s quite simple actually, add a little Lulu, a little TNA, a pair of running shoes and you got yourself a nice taste of a Vancouver girl.

We drink water, We do things that scare us, We know friends are more important than money, We know Jealousy works the opposite way you want it to, We know to breath deeply, We know to floss and travel… And if we ever forget, we know to look at our Re-usable Lululemon bag to remind us.

From Vancouver with love! Here is what’s inside our gym bag!
