Stumbled upon some very cute bags from Bao Bao Issey Miyake and had to share them, although they are just a “tad” pricey I still love the designs, and how the bags can be many different shapes depending on how you use them.  I feel these have a very sleek, futuristic feel to them especially with the simple shapes and  minimal embellishments.

10 Things About Me


I realised I never really introduced myself when I began posting on hipswithswagger so I thought it would be nice to do a brief  “10 Things About Me” post. I say brief because I have to go to class in a half hour and want so badly to get  something a tad entertaining posted today. 🙂 Here goes..

#1: I have dark brown hair and eyes.

#2: I am only 5 feet tall. I’ve been this height since about the 5th grade. Everyone grew and I stayed teeny. Yay for shorties! 

#3: I have 4 dogs, 2 horses, 11 chickens,  a cat, a guinea pig, and a rabbit. The guinea pig and cat are actually my little sisters but they live in my house so they’re kinda mine too.

#4: I am not actually admitted into a program at my University, I am enrolled as a “Special Student”….I know…my dad laughed too. I’m taking English and Linguistics courses at the moment.

#5: I can’t drive. I’m almost twenty and can’t even drive, it’s pathetic really. Driving just creates so much anxiety for me. It’s the same feeling I get when public speaking.

#6: Speaking of being almost twenty..my birthday is in 10 days. And my boyfriend birthday is tomorrow. I think it’s really cute that we’re so close lol

#7: I love to write but have never actually finished a story….I must have hundreds of fanfiction stories started.

#8: My favourite book series is Harry Potter. Always, because it’s bloody brilliant.

#9: ^^I wish I was British

#10: I envy those of you who don’t have to share a bathroom with three other people.

That’s all for now, hopefully those of you who read this aren’t  bored to death. Haha

Have a great day everyone! 🙂

First outfit post, yay! Here goes!

Today I had work and school so I wanted to look put together but still be comfy when walking around campus.

I’ve been dying to wear this skirt that I picked up on a shopping trip recently. I paired it with a pair of solid black tights and a wedged boot.

These are seriously so comfy, super cute, not to mention inexpensive! 😉

The cardigan wasn’t in the initial outfit idea, but it was necessary as  it’s still really chilly in Ottawa! However it worked out better than expected. I wore a basic cream colored tank underneath.

Here we go, what inspired the whole outfit…. matte red nail polish. It doesn’t feel like spring yet, hence the winter-esque colors.

My apologies or the not-so-terrific quality pictures but it was so old outside. Hope you enjoyed anyways, more to come!
