I had the wonderful opportunity of being invited to the media night for the opening of Ikea Winnipeg! So happy Ikea is finally here in Winnipeg and it opens tomorrow! The closest Ikea until now had been more than 7 hours away.  I know all of us are looking for great ways to organize all of our fabulous clothes and accessories and Ikea is the place to go for all of that. I checked out their amazing options and Ikea will be delivering my new shoe wardrobe tomorrow.  I am super excited about that!  Thanks to all the staff that made the night so fantastic!  Below are a few photos of the media event!

I am a huge ikea fan - I dont care what anyone says! I really love their furniture - my apartment is pretty much all Ikea with some CB2 thrown in where I could afford it. I like simple lines. ANYHOW your outfit is super cute and perfect for Ikea shopping - except I have trouble in heels in ikea since I usually have to lift a bunch of stuff <3 katherine

I don't think my comment saved! If it did, mind me, but I love Ikea! And this outfit is so cute for shopping there, but I can never wear heels at Ikea because I have to carry too much large stuff most times <3 katherine
