Tights: H&M Divided Den 40 - size XS
It was finally cold enough to bust out my faux fur vest. This is definitely outside my comfort zone because I typically wouldn't be brave enough to wear something like this. I wasn't exactly sure if I could even pull this look off. This blog really allows me to play around with different looks and try new things.
I am loving my new Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in burnt orange! I found this in Vegas at Nordstrom Rack for 1/2 off the retail price ($249). I originally tweeted about it and then left Vegas without buying it because I was unsure about the color. But then it was one of those things that I couldn't stop thinking about! I contacted Nordstrom's and found out that they will ship to your home from any Nordstrom Rack store for a shipping fee of $11. I was lucky enough to get an SA to waive the fee for me. I was lucky the purse was still there and the dust bag was still inside (sometimes dust bags go missing at discount stores). It was a good thing I had a picture of the purse to email them with- made it much easier for them to locate the item. Two days later, I got my purse and have been sporting it everyday. The leather is incredibly soft and buttery. I like the bigger size. I can fit my DLSR along with everything else and there is still plenty of room. The burnt orange color is great for adding color to neutral outfits and great for Spring/Summer.
I will be selling my Rebecca Minkoff mini mini in sky blue (worn once for blog post) if anyone is interested. (SOLD)
I know what you are probably thinking, more stripes? This dress looks like it's similar to my LOFT sweater dress (also seen here) but it's not. The color is taupe/black and made out of cotton verses a sweater material. What I like about this F21 stripe dress is that it's 97% cotton vs. polyester like my other navy and white one (also seen here and here) that I got for $9.50 which is already pilling up. I am officially on a stripe ban except I have this rippled stitch sweater coming (ordered awhile ago) and then that's it- I swear! I think I need a stripe intervention :)
What are your thoughts on my new orange bag?
