Newness & Grey Skies

Hello hello, for the second time today! I just wanted to share a few photo's of my recent purchases & what quickly became a grey rainy day here in Vancouver. Fortunately I didn't have to leave my cozy haven & avoided the ill weather entirely. I always love listening to the rain when I can take comfort in the fact that I needn't go outside. Now... picture time :)

This gorgeous grey knit is from the Banana Republic Heritage Collection. I actually saw it a couple weeks ago & had been dreaming of it. When pay day finally came along, I knew I needed to add this beautiful staple to my wardrobe! So very pleased with it :)
One of my trend obsessions this season has been velvet, but I had yet to find many workable pieces here in the city. This simple black velvet top is from the Banana Republic Holiday Collection, having just been released this past week. As with most BR products, this XS is quite a bit too big for me, but I had to get it anyways. I foresee it figuring big in my holiday wardrobe.
Another member of the BR Holiday Collection, this headband is pretty, girly, & has just the right amount of sparkle! Perfect for jazzing up a simple LBD look. 
This piece you've already seen here - my blue micromesh button-down, acquired at the American Apparel Warehouse Sale on Thursday! I am so happy over this piece - it's so versatile & can work for any season.
Our poor pumpkin friend has seen better days. His teeth & eyes have been the victims of weather & neglect...I still like him though haha
Grey skies & constant rain... so fortunate not to be out in it!

So that is that! What do you all think of my new purchases? Any favourites?
