Bow Blouse

The one thought that consistently pops into my head every time I do a little online shopping to update my wardrobe for this coming spring is, “Holy ruffles”. I have yet to decide if I want to partake in this trend (probably not), but at least for now, I will continue to wear the classic bow blouse. This Banana Republic version was purchased during the fall season last year and I’m quite a bit late posting about it, but is actually quite nice. It has a good amount of stretch, but it definitely runs on the small side. I went a size larger than my usual 0P, and I feel as if going up another size would still be quite comfortable without looking sloppy.

Pub Night in Grey Suede

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.

Blue Suede

When I spotted this blue suede jacket on Kelly, my eyes nearly popped out of my head. The color is insanely beautiful and unique for a suede jacket. And yet being navy blue, still so versatile. I tried for days to resist buying it, but I eventually gave in. And do I have any regrets? Definitely not!

I opted for a size Small, using Kelly as a point of reference. She if quite narrow-shouldered, while I have a more athletic set, so I know that if she fits into a particular size, I almost certainly have to size up at least one size above her. And the sizing was right on. The jacket is also somewhat heavier than I was expecting, but I’m quite happy about that. For $198, this is quite a steal, but I’ve also seen this on sale at 6pm.com for around $130! They don’t seem to be in stock right now, but if you dig this jacket, keep an eye out for it! It also comes in a gorgeous burgundy color.
