Long Lost Love

September 3, 2011 in Paige

The title is a little dramatic. All I meant was a brand of jeans- Paige, to be specific. Paige was my first brand of denim that I fell in love with. They are so simple and flattering (like on Kelly!). When I was fluctuating between a 24 and 25 I ended up selling all of my too large pairs, but never found any other ones to take their place. I was recently frequenting Evilbay and decided to esnipe a pair of Laurel Canyon jeans. Five days and $18 later I had a pair of great fitting, worn in jeans. Not bad!!

August 31, 2011 in Petite Fashion Challenge

This challenge is to take traditionally summer pieces and make them appropriate for fall. I only own one sundress, and despite my efforts, couldn’t make it fall appropriate. Then I tried the shorts and boots look- not good. I don’t know how people look so cute doing that!! I just look like I’m confused about seasons. I figured I’d take the easy way out and use my sandals as my “summer item.” I wear sandals until it it drops below the 40′s. I know its a little funny, but I just love having my feet free instead of cramped into hot, blister-forming shoes. I threw on these cords I got from J. Crew ($19.99 in size 24 short). I absolutely love these pants, and wish I got them in every color. They aren’t super-flattering, but they could be worse. They are so comfortable though, and the colors are amazing!! These will definitely be getting a lot of wear!!

September 2011 Shopping Goals

August 29, 2011 in Monthly Shopping Goals

I mentioned in a previous post that this month, I only want to invest in versatile items that I will keep for a long time. But what items would those be? Well, these are my tentative items. I plan on doing a whole closet critique when I have time so I can better determine what items I’m lacking, and what I have an abundance of.
Goal Items:

  • Flattering white button up blouse. 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve. Thicker, or at least enough to not have to layer under.
  • Tweed Pencil Skirt (love this and this!). I adore tweeds, especially blazers and skirts. I can never find them for reasonable prices, though.
  • Knee high black leather high heel boots. Hopefully classy enough to wear to work, but sexy enough to wear out. These might be what I’m looking for (well, in a much cheaper version).
  • Wool pencil skirt. The colors I’m choosing from are mustard, rust, and olive.
  • Blue colored pants (love these!!).
  • Nude Pumps. Comfortable ones, please. Perhaps these J. Crew ones have potential?

For my goal items I’m definitely going to be scouring Ebay, but I’m also open to paying a bit more for them, if its an item I truly love.We’ll see how it goes!!
