So I know it has been awhile but I have been really sick and not feeling well enough to post. I hardly even came in to work last week! Anyways I have picked up a few things since you have last heard from me... and even more because this last Saturday I went to a thrift store with my mom that we LOVED!! We both found plenty of things and we would have found even more if the store wasn't closing and kicked us out lol... but they have the BEST prices out of all the thrift stores I have been to. But that's for the next post. This post will include what I got during the Cyber Monday sales, a little thrifting, a little ebay, and a little dd's. =)
Let's begin with Cyber Monday! Mostly I made a GoJane order because they had 30% off all regularly priced items which was AWESOME!!
I love everything especially the taupe Lita knock Offs I have been dying to get!! =) They were maybe the only thing that didn't get the 30% off discount and were already before the discount the most expensive item, coming in around 40 bucks which hello, is still super good for FAB shoes! And since I was making the order anyways I thought why not get them now and make sure they don't go out of stock in my size. I also love the wedges I got in two different colors. I wanted to mention that the the ring on the left is actually a super shiny gold because I know that it did not come off that way in the picture.
Next for Cyber Monday...
I got the two pairs of corduroy leggings on the left at Kohl's. (The pair on the right are black velvet leggings I got on a separate trip and HAD to have.) Okay let me just explain that I have become obsessed with these corduroy leggings. I initially got the black, then I got the wine/red color. I wear the two of them constantly. They are so comfortable and look good so much so that my mom started wanting a pair. (And got! hehehe) I have been replacing jeans with them on a daily basis pretty much. lol...So it just made me want the other colors. I got the olive green and cinnamon brown ones here. There was also a really pretty purple that was out of stock in my size otherwise I would have the whole collection! I have always loved Vera Wang for Kohl's!
Lastly for Cyber Monday...
I got this looooooong taupe cardigan that I fell in love with when I saw it on the website. It is so very Mary-Kate Olsen and I adore her style. There were a few similar ones to choose from but the pockets were a huge plus and I just loved how slouchy and easy this one felt to go with other items of clothing. It reaches my ankles and it super cozy! I have worn it once to work already on the sick day I decided to go in.
That concludes the Cyber Monday portion of the post. =) But since we are on F21, I thought I would share a pair of leggings I found last week while looking for gift ideas.
Phe-freaking-nomenal! I can't get over how cozy and warm these are! They are an amazing piece to add to my winter collection!
So I have reconnected with my fondness for Ebay in the last couple of weeks. I am not sure exactly what led me back, but I am BACK! lol... I have found a few Xmas gifts and a few pieces of jewelry for me that were really inexpensive, and a few other things I plan to go back for once Xmas is over. I always end up having a list of things I want to get post Xmas while I am Xmas shopping. Anyways the one thing that has come to me so far that I just love is this peace symbol necklace. So cute!
Next... thrift store. So I went with Josie to a few thrift stores last weekend, and I found a few things. I got a black long velveteen skirt that I plan to cut and make a shorter one that I don't have a pic of but thought I would mention it anyways. Here are the other things I got.
I loved the vintage black faux fur coat with leopard lining, it felt so very me that I felt bad not getting it. The only thing is, it was $30 which felt so expensive to me for a thrift store! But it is pretty cute and has the 3/4 length sleeve. The other two items I just really liked.
Finally we come to dd's. I actually got four things but I wore the last item a few time and didn't get a chance to take a pic of them. They are royal blue leggings that look like jeans but are wayyy more comfortable. They look very similar to the jeans I got in this post from Target which I then actually took back since I found such similar ones for cheaper.
The Bon Jovi shirt is really fitted but stretchy so I think it would be good as a bottom layer. The leggings that look like jeans-LOVE. And this faux leather jacket that I got as a substitute for a Topshop-really-expensive jacket I was wanting. The Topshop version has black faux fur though and looks more motorcycle-esque. I was thinking of adding some spikes to the shoulders of this jacket where the quilted looking part is... inspired by my Blogging Idol's DIY on her Topshop jacket. We shall see...
