I’m obsessed with #1, the silk floral blouse from Zara; you can’t really tell from this picture, but there are spikes all over the shoulders!! I love me some spikes!! 🙂 Outfit post coming tomorrow…though, be careful if you plan on buying it. I went to two different stores and examined 5 size smalls to only find ONE without any spikes missing. Many of them looked like a couple of the spikes never made it onto the shirt at all with no holes, others had gaping holes from the spike being ripped out (I imagine it got caught on something when being tried on). The spikes that are on it seem pretty secure though so I think it was a production issue for the most part. Just something to be aware of if you’re going to drop a hundred dollars on a shirt!
Oh, and do you see a familiar shoe (or two) up there? My beloved Dany’s who were in heavy rotation the past year, are back and more fun than ever! I couldn’t help but get 2 more pairs – they are SO comfy and the perfect WTF height. LOVE THEM! I’m tempted to get the floral or leopard version, too… 😀 we’ll see. If you plan on buying them today, Endless has them for 20% off with purchases over $100. Also, Jessica Simpson’s website is have a 40% off sale that ends today on all shoes but most sizes are gone 🙁 . I was able to snatch up #7 on sale though. When I saw a facebook picture that a friend posted wearing the Jessica Simpson Terrii’s, I was in love. I’m a sucker for anothing with bows on it and these nauticul platforms were adorable!
If you follow me on twitter or instagram, you probably saw me post this pretty awesome gold leather jacket from TopShop (#6). It was my little splurge while in Vegas last weekend – since I don’t really gamble, I spent a lot of time at the Fashion Show Mall where TopShop recently opened and figured it was the perfect souvenir 😉 … oh and for us West-Coast’ers, word is, TopShop is opening at The Grove in Hollywood on Valentine’s Day!!! Yeah, I was excited and bummed at the same time. Valentine’s Day – as in 2013… not this year. Boo! …but I can’t wait, either way! Some of their products are H&M/Forever 21 quality so it’s really not worth the high prices… but others are gorgeous quality and well worth it so I’m a big fan of TopShop but particularly in person. It’s hit or miss ordering online because you can’t see the quality of the items.
I was also super excited about #10, these Zara pants! I’ve been hunting down leather looking pants forever. Though I’m fairly small, I have bigger thighs/legs (runs in the family) so finding leather or faux leather pants that fit nicely (and don’t cost almost a thousand dollars), has always been difficult. These have the perfect look of leather and I love its moto/edgy style! I wore them with the floral spike blouse but I did notice that they loosen up quite a bit throughout a day of wearing them… might have to get myself a backup pair in a size smaller lol.
I mentioned the SoleSociety Val’s being super comfy in my last outfit post – well, I caved and ordered the other color, too! I’m hoping they’ll be duplicated in the upcoming months in more colors because they are pretty awesome. I wore them to my husband’s graduation for an entire day! Walking around a Convention Center, standing in line, out to dinner later that night… I was perfectly fine the entire day. Amazing, right? Not a single blister or soreness. Win!
Lastly, my close friends might be a little shocked with #16. I’ve been looking for a white/cream color jacket forever, but Bebe?! Really? I don’t have anything particularly against Bebe, it’s just never really been a store I’m interested in. Quality has always been a miss for the particular items I did try out there and, I don’t know, it’s just not me. Maybe because we don’t really go clubbing like that for me to wear the things they sell (hey, they had some awesome Vegas/club dresses!)… but anyway, while in Vegas, I was shopping with a girlfriend and she confessed to me that she (who also wasn’t a Bebe fan) recently started shopping there, again. I’m not going to lie, I teased her about it, but then we walked in and she spotted this jacket and I was sold. Bebe, you’ve redeemed yourself. I might stop by and check you out again next time I’m at the mall lol!
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by & especially bearing with me for being MIA for a few days!
P.s. for those of you who liked the TopShop Chain Link Peter Pan Necklace from this haul, Forever 21 has an awesome lookalike for only $10.80, a THIRD of the cost 🙁 which makes me sad since I forked over $30 for mine but eh, I don’t feel like dealing with TopShop returns. Enjoy!
