Prada Pointy Toe Pumps / My Stay at the St. Regis Hotel

As the lucky winner of the Modern Mix Vancouver x St. Regis Hotel giveaway, I was recently treated to a one-night stay in an executive suite at the St. Regis Hotel, dinner at Gotham Steakhouse, and a Holt Renfrew shopping experience. It's definitely the biggest contest I've ever won and happily coincided with my trip back to Vancouver for my Bar Call Ceremony and birthday. Talk about perfect timing!

Since it was a special occasion, I decided it also warranted a special purchase so I picked up these gorgeous new Prada pointy toe pumps during my visit at Holt's. The underlying texture and glossy patent gives the shoes a special touch, but they are also a very classic shape and height.



The St. Regis Hotel, by the way, is absolutely lovely. I'll admit that I initially felt a bit weird staying in a hotel in my own city, especially when I got into the elevator full of tourists. However, it was nice to be right in the heart of downtown and I would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting Vancouver or even Vancouverites looking for a staycation.

The hotel has so many great amenities, including free long distance calls, internet, and a full à la carte breakfast. Plus, look at the amazing suite I stayed in:


Thanks again to Modern Mix Vancouver and especially to Jeremy, GM at the St. Regis!

  23. Those prada pumps are beyond gorgeous. So envious of your contest prize!

  24. These classic Prada pumps are the perfect height. These days I've eschewed glittery and glitzy heels for simple plain pumps. I just think they're more versatile and flattering.
