Winter Wellies

Rain boots: $59.99  Purchased from Winners
Label: Hunter
I bought these rain boots from Winners two seasons ago, and I haven't regretted it since! Being an avid fan of rain boots, I have already worn through several pairs in my lifetime. Thankfully Hunter rain boots have a "seamless waterproof shell" that should prevent any cracking of the rubber from my daily wears and tears. These boots normally retail between $149-$200, so I definitely got a sweet deal on them! I had a choice between purchasing a pink or neon green pair, but I weighed my options and figured that if I were to ever go for a walk on a dark and rainy night, this colour would attract the attention of any vehicle on the road!

Dress: $49.99  Purchased from H&M
First of all, I would like to be the first to comment that this dress shrunk 2 inches too short in the dryer! Fine...more like 5 inches. I guess I should have washed this garment BEFORE I hemmed it, but its too late for that now :(  I guess I'll just have to pair it with some stockings from now on...and a tan wouldn't hurt either...Lol

Cardigan: $14.99  Purchased from Urban Behavior
This sweater is essentially a knock-off of the classic Wilfred Cardigan from Aritizia, only it is 10x cheaper! I like the sheerness of this sweater. It is perfect for those summer nights when you want to layer a light sweater over shorts and a tank top. Moreover, it takes up very little room in your purse, and it weighs zero to nothing!

Necklace: $ Free!  Purchased from Exposure
This large peacock feather necklace was given to me for my recent birthday  by my friend Esther. She originally told me that if I did not like the necklace she will not be offended, but I assured her that I did. And not only that, I featured it on my blog! I adore the bright colours of this statement piece, and it really highlights the colour of my boots.

Purse: $29.99  Purchased from Winners
Label: Airoldi Couture
I purchased this bag for my sister many years ago, and then proceeded to steal it from her. I wear this bag all the time. In fact, I've worn this bag so often that I've teared up the inside, and had to have a friend patch it up for me. Unfortunately her mending job only last a few months, and now I am back to wearing a broken bag that I refuse to throw away!

Socks: $4.99  Purchased from Ardenes Accessories

Frugal Finds Total: $159.95
