Recent Purchases


As I mentioned in my last shopping post, I have been trying to focus on winter weather items.  But after much searching, I am still on the hunt for (& determined to find) the perfect fitting dark wash skinny jeans, a plaid button-down shirt & a black leather moto jacket.  In addition to these below, I also purchased this collared sweater & the blazer last seen here.  

(A quick note about Forever 21 pieces: the cape I wore in this post + the boucle top seen in this Instagram had to be returned due to seams coming apart.  When I buy items from their store, I always check for quality...but because these were purchased online, I hadn't inspected them closely enough.  Just a reminder for those of you who do place orders with them to carefully double-check for loose seams and threads before you remove the tags!)


Merona Wedge Booties - $19.48 (in store on clearance + $5 off coupon)
J. Crew Factory Fair Isle Sweater - $49.20 (on sale + 20% off code)
River Island Quilted Crossbody Bag - $27.70 (on sale + 10% off code)
J. Crew Factory Bow Bracelet - $23.60 (on sale + 20% code)
Charles Jourdan Suede Pumps - $57.65 (on sale + extra 40% off + $20 off coupon)

So many beautiful pieces. I just love the great colour of those shoes. Too bad about the F21 pieces. I agree, I really have to inspect items from stores like that before I buy them. Even with Zara. I bought a coat that I later returned because the quality was terrible and it was falling apart the first time I wore it.

A plaid shirt and a leather moto jacket are on top of my fall/winter list as well! It's just so hard to find a moto jacket that doesn't break the bank. I think I've resigned myself to spending $300+, and am currently leaning towards getting this one:http://www.us.allsaints.com/women/leather/allsaints-belvedere-leather-jacket/

I wouldn't be surprised if you found something better AND cheaper though - I'm always so amazed at the amazing pieces you find in unexpected places! Keep it up!

Rachel Lynne said...

I just bought these booties too! They are amazing and were such a good deal :) Happy Friday!

I hate it when things fall apart on you the moment you put it on! So annoying.

Love the bag you got, it really is perfect for fall.

That bag is so great! It's too bad the Forever 21 cape and top had to go back, loved that cape!

Clara Turbay said...

I like the options you present are novel and uninhibited

Ashleigh said...

Love the shoes, boots and bag! When I buy from Forever 21 I always re-enforce the seams for added security. Just a tip!

Great picks! I particularly like that fair isle sweater. I find some of them to be overwhelming and others dated looking. That J. Crew option is classic but still has enough characteristics of fair isle sweaters to make it fun :)
