This summer (and a little before it) I saved some money and got some much needed things including work clothes (I thrifted a GREAT pair of Antik Denim cords), a new pair of black pumps for work (kitty ate my cute Mary Jane pair) and other things. I hunted high and low for items I needed at great prices, and did well! I'll save all my thrifted items for another post.
First score was at Kohl's, way back in April. I don't usually shop there, but while heading to the liquor store to buy something for a friend's party there happened to be one in the same lot, so I checked it out. Inside I found the cutest bolero on sale for $14 down from $44. I picked it up to pair with my many tank tops since I don't have many blouses/work tops. It's from Candies, called the Rosette Cocoon Shrug (idk why they called it a shrug but..) It's the only thing from Candies I own, but I have gotten many compliments on it at work :)
Ok so I've been seriously needing a new pair of black pumps since my kitty destroyed my old ones (and my crocs..grrr) and since Japan rarely has anything cute in my size, I went to DSW. Just as I was about to give up the search, I found these (I don't remember the name, I left the shoebox in Erika's house) Michael Michael Kors patent ones. I never owned patent pumps before so I was nervous, but I fell in love! They were $80.. a little steep though not terrible.. I decided to get them as I really need a new pair, and lucky me, at the register there was a lady who gave me her $5 coupon! She said she wasn't going to use it and rather than let it expire she gave it to me. After thanking her up and down, I got these babies for $75 :)
While there I saw these gorgeous navy Daffodil platform peep toe pumps from Kelly and Katie. I have a dress that I have been looking for a pair in this color to match, and they weren't so expensive ($39) and actually pretty comfy. I decided to leave them for the time being, and if they were meant to be I'd go back and get them. Well, the rest is history..I now own them :p
Finally to wrap this up is an oldie but goodie I forgot to post. For Christmas my mom got me this adorable Michael Kors bright blue day clutch. I know day clutches are all the rage right now, and I thought it was awesome! Only thing is, I haven't really found much to wear it with. Love that print inside too! Can anyone give me some more inspiration on what to wear it with?
Anyway, that's that for this post! Part two coming in the near future. I tag all of you to show me your recent finds!
