This blog has gone on for upwards of six years now, and I think this might actually be the first time I have ever showcased a mini skirt. It’s been a long time since I’ve allowed a mini to have a place in my wardrobe, but for $35, I didn’t have a whole lot to lose. Also, I thought it would go fabulously with these Stuart Weitzman Highstreet OTK boots. These boots happen to be eligible for $125 off at Neiman Marcus right now with code NEWYEAR until 01/13/2017. They run a bit long, but the same as my Stuart Weitzman 50/50.
One of my favorite jewelry purchases of 2016 was this gold choker necklace from Bauble Bar. It can be tied or allowed to hang freely around the neck and give a little extra visual interest without going overboard on an otherwise pretty minimalist ensemble.I also purchased the black leather version that is also extremely popular at the moment, but I find myself always reaching for this one.
As a child, I was absolutely obsessed with oxfords. I owned at least three pairs by the age of 12. I used to walk around the house in them all day, while trying not to crease the top of the shoe while a walked. This basically meant that I was waddling around the house in my super shiny new shoes all day and all night. I eventually got over wearing oxfords when I discovered heels as a teenager. =)
A few years ago, I decided that I again wanted to own a pair of oxfords that were somewhat reminiscent of the ones that I owned when I was younger. When I saw these Vince Maye Oxfords, I was pretty confident that these were “the ones”.
One of my favorite purchases from 2016 is this camel coat from Aritzia, that now appears to be sold out. Aritzia has just been killing it in the coat department this season. And I actually purchased two coats late last year and have not regretted it for a minute. This particular coat is just the right color of camel that I was searching for, and as an added bonus, the collar can be buttoned up right at the top for those extra windy days when you want to be covered right to the chin. I’m so happy I can cross off another one of those “clas
I don’t often do posts like this, but when I do, it’s because I think it’s an awesome sale! Ssense.com is having a post-holiday sale right now and it’s really good! Some designer bags that I have never seen on sale before are discounted between 12% and 70% off. It’s totally worth having a look to see if that handbag you’ve been stalking is discounted. I may have succumbed to buying something that has been on my wish list for a while now. =)
Note, however, that sales may vary according to which site you purchase from. For example, the Chloe Faye bag is on sale in Canada, but not in the US. I picked out my faves below, but again, be forewarned that depending on where you are, the item showing may not be on sale.
There is free shipping to Canada for purchases over $100 and free shipping to the US for purchases over $200. Free returns for both countries if you are unsure if you really want it. In this case, I say, buy now, think later!
