i returned the coat from jcrew - it just didn't WOW me and for that price i really needed it to in order to justify the purchase, you know? in return though, i stopped by anthro yesterday and found this beaut on sale for just $70:
and since i've been wearing it i've recieved about 30 compliments! it's not very warm at all but it's almost constructed like a dress and has the loveliest details...
the orange stitching goes great with my vintage orange gloves :)
this is a look a wore last weekend but neglected to photograph. we had a baby shower/brunch to attend at 11am and as i am tearing through my closet trying to put together something to wear at 10:45am p looked at me in complete desperation and confusion and said "can't you just wear an outfit that you've worn before and liked?!".... well, i guess i can.
i thrifted this top months and months ago and never wore it until last weekend - i love it's fluttery sleeves and bow tie.
after the shower we went to a craft bazaar which was a bit of a let-down for me personally seeing as how i was looking for a few gifts and most of the items were more expensive and not something i'd easily pick out for someone who isn't me.... thus i bought myself the following presents:
these chandeliers are super heavy but SO worth it!
now i'm in a funk because i really need to stop the spending (especially on myself) but all i want to do right now is go to the thrift! what to do? what to do?
details of outfit from above:
knit hat - H&M
vintage top - thrifted
mini - gap (had it for about 5 yrs and was 9 bucks!)
tights - thrifted (but new not used - ew.)
boots - gift from ellie (thrifted)
ring - F21
if i were to guesstimate the outfit total i would say = $25
can you tell i'm trying to justify going shopping again?!
