This past week I casually went to the mall and I was browsing in and out of the stores, when I saw a blouse I had been on the hunt for on sale at WHBM. This gorgeous Pink Ruffled Blouse that was perfect for so many occasions. I had looked for it in stores and couldn’t find it, it was regular price online, so I had given up hope. Well I was browsing the sale section and there it was in all its glory. The shirt I had been looking for!
Well the reason I found the blouse was because I was looking for a skirt that called out to me and I decided to try to find it in my size, and voila! I saw the blouse. Well the Skirt is a Mixed Texture Skirt with faux leather and stretchy ponte fabric on the sides. I never would have imagine it would fit me in my normal size, be a good length for me, or look amazing! I has been a really long time since I bough something for myself to go out that would serve me for things other than work. So it was a treat for myself. All the sale area was on BOGO50% so it gave a me a reason to justify getting both, plus the girl in the store apparently gave me an additional discount!
Finally as I am trying things on, the sales associate tells me there is a discount running for rewards members and she tells me I have $20 off any regular priced item. She killed me with this, because it was the perfect excuse to get one of the coolest tees I have seen or liked in a long time! It is the Cafe Tee, a plain white tee with the phrase “cafe s’il vous plait” and I have loved it and desired it ever since I first saw it! I paired it with the skirt and it actually makes for a very nice laid back edgy outfit!
Also about two weeks ago, I was keeping a friend company while she organized her apartment and I decided to browse LOFT sale. They were having a sale/event where an additional discount was given to all sale items and I was able to find the Seamed Ponte Legging I have been waiting for all this season for $18. It is a wine/burgundy color and that is one of the colors I wanted. I also liked WHBM leggings because both lines carry thick leggings that can keep you warm and hold everything in place. They arrived last week and fit like a dream!
At the same time I had been needing to get new jeans because it had been years since I had bought new jeans and over the holidays and about 2 weeks ago I was able to get 2 new jeans. Now I am an American Eagle Outfitters kind of jean girl and only a few from other places have been up to par.
They can be expensive so I usually wait for sales, events, or markdowns to acquire them, but they are totally worth the money if you don’t mind paying. I have the Blue Heaven Skinny Jean and the Super Sassed Skinny Kick and I love them both. At AEO and most brands I am a size 4 and I usually got long at AEO but recently it seems they added a little length because now the regulars fit me at the ankle perfectly and some long styles can be a little too long. I love their new type of skinny because it is made with Lycra and it is very comfortable, stretchy, and fitting.
Just to make this post complete, I will add my most recent shoe and jewelry addition because I am obsessed and in love with this pair of shoes. They are very comfortable even without being broken into, they do not masacre your feet, and they look amazing! I am talking about the BCBGeneration Darron Pumps which are an incredible dupe for the Valentino RockStud Pumps. I had wanted these pumps for forever and one day about a month ago, I swung by my local DSW and there they were… in the clearance section with a 75% tag! They ended up being $20 + tax. I was stoked, and 2 days later I wore them to my rotation and I was in love!
For jewelry, I fell in love with a piece back in January when I went with my mom to get my Christmas present and I knew I had to have it. I wanted it for everyday use and I think it is so simple yet elegant and gorgeous! I debated over the color of the gem and in the end opted for the green because it was the first that caught my eye, and it would look great with any color of top or blouse and with my skin tone. It is this beautiful TOUS necklace from the New Color Collection in silver with Amazonite.
I do not have any new hand bags but I am planning my first designer handbag purchase for hopefully this year or next and it will be a clutch/crossbody (details coming soon). I did see a clutch that would have paired well with some of these items but because of the planning for the other handbag I really shouldn’t get any more. It was the Michael Kors Sloan Studded Gusset and maybe if it gets lowered close to $50 I will get my hands on it.
While I was writing I realized I could do some cool outfits with most of these new additions to my wardrobe and so I put some ideas together for you. I hope you enjoy them!
