Why does a trip to the mall always ensure surprise finds? Mission OTK black boots got off track after stepping foot into bebe. Black friday deals came extra early this year so this Zipper Peplum Leather Jacket just had to be mine after placing it on hold for several hours until I just couldn’t take it anymore..
An innocent invite to a cocktails and bling house party in NJ is to blame for the last few goodies I have picked up. So much for a ONE ITEM ONLY limit for myself. Damn you Lia Sophia.
Walking into Marshall’s I discover I am not as strong as I thought. Passing the entire shoe department.. dress department.. and then bag department.
I reach the last row of bags as I turn my direction to the home department, where I was intending on, and there it was, sitting on the end cap of a bag rack. My perfect cross body bag I had been seeking since the start of the summer. White gorgeous smooth leather, gold hardware, and not one nick or scratch in the leather, half price, AND Dooney & Bourke. A brand I have had a secret crush on since last fall when I came very close to getting one of their satchels.
I tell myself no. And then yes. And then no again. And then I make a bet with myself. If they have what I came in here for. A fabric shower curtain, ( which they have about 50% of the time ) I will buy the bag. If they don’t have the curtain, forget it. I will walk out.
What can I say. It was a meant to be purchase.
Ok HauteLook, it’s really hard to resist a pair of stilettos for $15. And I would normally never ever ever buy shoes final sale online unless I happened to have had a pair already.
Luck-il-ly I just had happen to have the taupe version sitting in my closet from a Steinway shopping adventure last fall. It wasn’t the first time I picked up a pair of Qupid’s and I am sure this wont be the last.. So wish their website wasn’t wholesale.
Who doesn’t need a pair of green and purple booties?
Picked up these super fun Ivory/Grey Houndstooth pants at a little boutique in Long Branch New Jersey called Molly and Zoey. When I went searching for a lovely picture online to post, of course I find them $20 cheaper. Just USA Black Label.
Considering I have let myself get suckered into the world of Vince Camuto and handbags this week, I thought I would refrain from purchases today and pay tribute to my awesome black and gold Andrea French Satchel purchased at Macy’s this past fall.
Black is a color I have been trying to stay away from, but as much as I tried to refrain, a black bag really is a wardrobe staple.
If you are interested.. one lonely bag left in stock on Amazon.
So I was in Marshall’s on Tuesday and scored this Green Topstitch Shady Glade Vince Camuto dress. I was thinking as I left the fitting room.. GOD I wish they had more of these in other colors. I love the fit. ( Just needs to get hemmed a few inches to be a winter with boots / spring with sandal dress. )
How was I to know Hautelook is run by God? Thank you God! Picked up two other colors today. ( Light Shark & Eclipse Navy ) Would have probably grabbed the Teaberry too if it hadn’t been sold out.
God I love white, and leather, and items which work with almost any other color. Found this Terzetto Loreto Handbag today on Hautlook for 79 beans.. Got to finally use my $25 gift card from a recent CEW event too. Happy girl I am!… Should probably return my last night purchases at Marshall’s.
