That last Summer Dress

That last Summer Dress

A few weeks ago bloggers and media were invited to Nordstrom Eaton Centre, Toronto before it opened to the public. I had a lot of goodie bag to share with you in coming days, beauty products that they given us to try.

I wore this really nice dress from , By the designer Irina Miro. I love how fast they shipped to me considering they sent it from china.

This is probably my last post of a summer dress, as we know fall has already arrived.




The quality of the dress is really good with price of only $33.67 USD and it’s super worth it for it’s price.


During the beauty event at Nordstrom I saw some of my favorite bloggers, Filipa of and Roxanne of , we decided to have lunch at Ricarda’s ( Roxanne treat) a mediterranian restaurant but opt out for a healthy lunch. I made my own salad! (yum). I like this on their menu where you can mix and match either salad or your own pizza.





Who doesn’t love marble and gold together?


Hi Roxanne! you should really check out her blog, I still can’t believe this mama bear has already 2 kids! I don;t know how she balance everything. She’s amazing!


Filipa who I adore so much, so proud of how her blog and her career which is booming. Talk about women empowerment right here!


I ordered the Mojito, I heard it’s the popular one.


And this one is my favourite in their menu, I think we ordered 3 of this Charred Monteforte Halloumi


Roxanne had the Organic Kale & Blonde Frisée


Filipa ordered the Wild Pacific Salmon


And I ordered my “make your own salad”, I have spinach, kale, iceberg lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, lots of goat cheese, chicken and avocado with honey mustard dressing! Yum!

After lunch I met up with my beau to walk around our area in yorkville.


Where we spotted this cute little house in the middle of a busy place! so gorgeous.





I really love how flowy this dress is and surely I will miss summer so much. As I type this I am packing this dress along with my summer clothes and excited to head out in a while to shop for Fall clothes and shoes!

Have you done your fall shopping already?

    Luckily, I’m in Charleston right now where it seems to get cold only one day out the year, LMAO. Seriously, I haven’t shopped for anything at yet, but I’m really hoping it doesn’t get too cold because I am trying to save up as much as I can to get my credit back on track. I’m trying to be responsible (LOL) but it’s so damn hard.

    That is definitely a really pretty dress. Thanks for visiting my site, btw! I hope to see more of you around.
