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 had been searching for a good quality cozy, off-the-shoulder sweater for a few months and I finally fount it in this AQUA cashmere sweater. I was a bit apprehensive trying it, because basically all kinds of wool makes me itch, but I had absolutely no problems with this. It is tunic length on me, but a little tucking in of the hem gives it a different look. Right now, this sweater is 25% off at Bloomingdales. It’s still rather pricey, but If you are looking for an off the shoulder sweater that isn’t made of acrylic or an itchy wool material, I absolutely recommend this.
Also a note about my most recent absence from the blog. While work has gotten [a lot more] chaotic, my camera recently turned into a brick, so I’m without a camera for the next little while until I can get a replacement–hopefully sooner rather than later! For now, I’ll have to dig into the archives and see what I can come up with.
Headed out to the pub this weekend for something a bit different. No, you are not seeing double. If you recall, I do have this exact same jacket in blue (see post here). I was looking for a grey suede jacket that didn’t break the bank and when I came across this one by BlankNYC I couldn’t hit the “purchase” button fast enough. Unfortunately, they are sold out in the grey, but they do have it in stock in this amazing burgundy color.
Bloomingdale’s is having their Friends & Family sale and you can grab this amazing suede jacket with an extra 25% off on $198 (use code: FRIENDS). For a suede jacket with that has a good amount of weight to it, this is a really great price and I highly recommend it.
The sleeveless turtleneck tunic I’m wearing under the jacket is made by Ann Taylor. I was fully expecting to return this, but was really surprised at how flattering it was. I took my regular AT size, XSP. It is also currently on sale with an extra 30% off at checkout.
Other notable sales include Theory which is also having there F&F sale. Use code FRIENDS for 25% off. They also offer free shipping and returns if you are unsure about sizing. I’m really loving the this trench coat, and while I’m not normally about ruffles, I really order this blouse.
