Put Together

New job = renewed motivation to put effort into putting together outfits. Well, more or less.

Also, Katherine from Feather Factor keeps introducing blogs like this one that keep me hooked and inspired (and sometimes be a downright copycat!)


Shirt - Gap
 (purchased during Black Friday sale, 2010 when everything in the store was 50% off - $25)
Skirt and belt - Banana Republic
 (on sale at store with additional 25% off. You can find it here with 30% using code BRSAVE30)
Shoes - Ann Taylor (40% off coupon)

I've made a decision to only buy things when they are on sale.
Now that I'm paying attention, there's a lot of stores that have deals and promotions that run quite frequently. Paying full retail price when you could get 30-40% off if only you paid a little more attention doesn't seem particularly smart.

I think I probably looked like I was color blind yesterday, what's with bright red, purple, blue and black. But the outfit made me happy and I was humming the whole day. And THAT'S what's important, people!


Headband - from a NYC street vendor
Top - The Limited
Jeans - Forever21
Bag - Linea Pelle
Shoes - Betsey Johnson via Gilt

My Prized Matches


It's been a busy few weeks. But then I got tired of dressing like a dowdy matron. So I pulled out my most expensive bag and shoes and upped it. I find it amusing that the bag and shoes are a perfect match for each other. I don't remember if it was a happy coincidence or if I planned it that way.

Cardigan - J.Crew (~ $20 from the outlet)
Top - from Australia ($10)
Pants - Elie Tahari ($50 from Saks outlet)
Bag - Chanel
Shoes - Christian Louboutin

Continuing on the bargain trend in clothing, I suppose. Love outlets. Especially the J.Crew one. I have to limit myself to a maximum of 2 visits per year (thank goodness my office shifted! It used to be 5 minutes away from the outlets)
