DSW Canada is here!

Attention shoe lovers! 
The time has finally come! Calgary has it's very own DSW Canada at Cross Iron Mills! 
I was lucky enough to visit the store for their pre opening VIP/Media event the other night and I gotta say I was in complete awe over how large the store is (26,000 square feet)! They don't call it a warehouse for nothing, there are rows and rows of any type of shoe you can ever desire. Naturally being the shopaholic that I am, I went home with quite the haul... seriously 4 pairs and no regrets. In my defence, the shoes are all heavily discounted at warehouse prices so it felt good getting a bargain! Thankfully, I wasn't the only shoe obsessed girl there! My girl Ania went home with quite the haul too! Stay tuned for future posts where I'll be featuring some of the amazing shoes I got! 

DSW Canada is also hosting an Instagram contest in celebration of their grand opening. All you have to do is take a picture in the store with your favourite pair, your haul or even just a picture of the store and hashtag #ShoeLoveMoment! 

Follow along on my Instagram (@bornlippystyle) to see some more pictures of the VIP event and the pair of heels I couldn't live without! 

I also want to thank all of you for entering my giveaway to win $100 gift card to DSW Canada! I have contacted the winner via email. Stay tuned for more contests in the future!

Is it Monday already?

Seriously, how is it Monday already? 
This weekend totally flew by way too fast. What's getting me by is that in just two weeks I'll be going home for Easter to spend a bit of much needed time with friends and family. I seriously cannot wait to back to the "east side".
 Anyways, on the weekends I like to be completely comfortable and this is my version of that! This is my third pair of Gap's resolution denim and I love them! I gotta get them hemmed because ahhh "short girl problems"... anyone feel me in that department? 
What did you guys do this weekend? Ours was pretty chill. I had friends over for dinner and wine which is always a good idea. I also went to go see the movie "Still Alice" which is such an incredibly depressing but compassionate movie. Julianne Moore completely deserved the Oscar for Best Actress. If you get the chance to see it do it but make sure to bring the tissues... you'll need them! 

Happy Monday!

DSW is coming to Calgary... + A Giveaway!

It's no secret that I'm in love with shoes (aren't we all ladies?) so when I found out that Calgary was getting it's very own DSW -Designer Shoe Warehouse I immediately scoped out online to see all the great brands I'd be anticipating. It was always a US store to me but now us Canadian girls can get in on the action! What's not to love about Nine West, Stuart Weitzman, Steve Madden and BCBG? (just to name a few). 

Luckily for us shoe addicts out in the Wild West, DSW is opening this Thursday March 26th (8 AM) at CrossIron Mills. If you're an early riser and you're one of the first 200 people in line you'll receive a $25 gift card to go towards your next favourite pair of shoes!
