 ~My carnival cup~

Found at Giant Tiger this month. Lots of cute carnival bottle options to choose from.

How ready are you for next week? I'm all set, got my accessory shopping done, just happened upon great finds while already shopping. My tights and silver laces are coming from CarnivalKicks.
 (Tuesday is the last day to place orders with them.
They'll be at Saldenah's mas camp on Thursday and Friday from 1pm til 8ish. Select 'Caribana pickup' as the shipping option.)

Scored these bad gyrls at Value Village for $7.50. Oh yes.

Ideal sized backpack bag, also at Value Village for $3. You heard it. 

 Caught this dragonfly in Chinatown.

Tell us where you got your footwear and other accessories, and send pictures if you would like them included in this post to karabana01@yahoo.ca.

  Raesha "bought these online for $9, spray painted them gold (they were taupe) and decorated them.

Here is the finished product. Took a couple hours. Did it back in the first week of June. Stretched the hell out of the boots for three days prior to decorating them

Ironically, I don't think I will wear them on the road. I will stick with the purple Joan&David suede boots I found on Kijiji and wore at the July 7th launch. Although they are a 1.5 sizes too large and padded with Dr Scholl's inserts, I intend to be munching on Advil all parade day."


Kryssy says "I got my boots at a discount store for less than $20 and decorated them a while back."


"I got the gold purse ($5.99) & the eyelashes ($0.99 ea.) at my local beauty supply store.
The Gold Metallic Leg Wraps ($21.99), red drawstring water bag ($5.99), & the selfie stick ($15.99) are from Amazon.com.
I used my points at Sephora to get the mist & fix mini to keep my makeup intact. Also used Sephora points to get the mini emergency kit; but I'm not using all the stuff that's in it. (I think they sell for $14 & $16 respectively.)"

Ooh Kara!!! Such good deals!!! You always get the best accessories! I love that dragonfly... It's sexy!!!
This is why Raesha is a Carnival Queen... Those heels! I'm so envious! I tried wedges one year and suffered for a year afterwards; so now I stick to flats! LOL. I spent a bunch of time decorating my boots and I'm debating not using them as well! LOL. I did silver glitter boots last year and the glitter was falling off by mid-parade. Since judging as at the end this year, I don't see the ones I did this year, making it to the end... so I literally bought another pair today. LOL. If they don't arrive in time I'll use the decorated pair but I don't see it happening otherwise! Only a few days left! :)
