Club Monaco is one of my favorite TB (to browse) online shops. True, it is quite expensive and I could never really afford to buy anything from there, let alone all the things I covet each time I visit – but all their designs are exactly my cup of tea (easy to wear, laid back, casual chic). Thankfully the online shop only delivers to the US and Canada, so both me and my bank balance are safe. Still I can’t help but look around and make lists of all my favorite things – if only for inspiration, in a bid to find similar, lower budget options. What do you think of my choice of dresses/ coats/ shoes & accessories, featured above? Any piece you particularly like/ think would be worth splurging on? Any ideas re: similar ‘philosophy’ brands with a more budget friendly approach? Let me know in the comments’ section… Advertisements

What do you think? Are you as addicted to shoes as I am? And, would you be tempted to buy yet another pair – even if your closet was already brimming full of them?
