BCBG Blazer: This I found at Nordstrom's Rack. I was rummaging through the racks and I happened to glance at this blazer. Didn't love it at first and saw it was a size 2 and was like- I'll pass...but then I found myself going back to it several times because it just looked really petite. So I said, heck I'll try it on just to see. And what do you know- it freaking fit like a glove. The 3/4 sleeves- LOVE. The length and cut- LOVE. The material was well made and the gray/white pinstripes- LOVE. The detail on the back is darling. I didn't even look at the price. That would determine whether or not I would buy it. It was originally $118- marked down to $16.97. Yes you are reading that right- $16.97 for a work blazer that I do NOT have to do any alterations whatsoever. I was so jazzed!!!! It runs so tiny that any smaller- I don't think I could button it!!!
I was thinking how to make it work since I don't have anything like this in my closet. I thought- OMG it would look so nice with a fresh white skirt and some gray pearls (the ones I just got for my b-day).
I also found this one at Nordie's Rack! Seems like I have had lots of luck lately at this store!!! This one was a bit spendy given it's a tank but the fit and the material was so soft and felt so good- I couldn't pass up. It was $25...ouch. Never thought I would spend that much on a simple tank but it just felt right and it actually looked really nice with the BCBG blazer. I normally wouldn't buy something like this but I am really trying to do my best to buy things that are simple and I can wear more than a few times before it sits in my closet to collect dust and eventually end up in my donations bag.
Bebe White Skirt: This is from a few years ago and I just love it. It can be dressed up or worn casually. I love the side pockets. The fit is really nice, it's not too tight or too loose. I can mix and match with many different tops so it's very versatile. A nice white skirt is essential for Summer!
Tory Burch Shoes: *Sigh*...my latest and greatest find and found it at Nordstrom Rack. Okay, so I tend to frequent this store...LOL These are my new fav pumps. When I saw them in the "Designer" section of the store which I never roam to because I get scared of the price tags. This past weekend, I decided to pop thru and thank goodness I did because I found these! I not only LOVE the 2 toned colors of black and gray but the heel is so perfect and it doesn't slip. Any pumps that don't slip and are a size 5- I'll buy in a heartbeat. Was $398- marked down to $170. Not bad considering they are TB's and they were in a rare size 5. I kind of splurged on this but have no regrets. I have no problem spending that much on pumps because I wear them to work and it can match with so much. LOVE love love this! So glad I found them! They are sold out everywhere! The quality of TB is well- fantastic. And I especially was drawn to this because there was not large logo in the front of the shoe like most TB shoes- which I don't mind but for work, I prefer to have it more simple. The subtle tiny TB logo in the back of the heel is perfect for me. I normally don't like a pointed toe- I prefer almond toe but this one wasn't too pointy and didn't make me walk weird.
Gray 3 Tiered Pearl Necklace: A great friend gave this to me for my b-day and I absolutely love it. I love the fact that it's already pre-made 3 tiered so you don't have to worry about it re-adjusting (like my long pink pearls I make into 3 tiers).
