I forgot to mention one of my recent Poshmark purchases on my last post.
This beautiful silk top by J. Crew was only $19.00!
It is perfect under a black blazer or on its own with a pair of black slacks. I wear it to work all the time.
Seriously. If you haven’t checked Poshmark out yet, you need to.
I haven’t really gone shopping in the traditional sense or ordered much of anything online in a while. I have picked up a few nice pieces from Poshmark.
- J. Crew Sequin Dress – Purchased for only $40. My sister is getting married and I plan to wear this to one of the parties leading up to the wedding.
- J. Crew Jacket – I purchased this jacket for only $40! It was in perfect condition.
- J. Crew Brown Slingbacks – I have a beautiful Teri Jon formal dress that I haven’t been able to wear in years because I didn’t have shoes to go with it. Problem solved! I scored these gently worn heels for only $10!
- Michael Kors Heeled Sandals – These have been on my liked list on Poshmark for some time. When I saw that they were reduced, I pounced. Such a classic and timeless look.
- Tory Burch Top – I LOVE this top. It is cotton on the front and has a patterned silk on the back.
- Tory Burch Navy Minnie Flats – I paid $250+ for my other pair of Minnies and was over the moon that I could pick up a pair second hand for only $56! I wear these almost every day.
I am still really enjoying the Bonbon trend.
I especially love this look:
I went pretty plain on this trend. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but they are a pale grey. I can’t remember how much they cost, but it was around $30.00.
I’m trying to simplify my wardrobe. I’m going to be holding on to more neutrals and buying less busy prints.
The real purpose of this post is to tell you about my new shoes. These Tory Burch flats are a revelation. I used to have a bunch of Tory Burch Reva flats and, let’s be honest, they were not comfortable. Tory Burch has won me over all over again with her new show The Minnie.
Oh my gosh they are comfortable! I was in Monkees of Blowing Rock in late August and tried on a pair just to see what the sizing was like because the Reva wasn’ quite true to size. I had planned to check my size and then put them on my wish list for my birthday. As soon as I put them on, I was a goner. I bought these wonderful Minnies in Light Oak. I’m totally obsessed now and would totally replace all of my other Tory Burch flats with these. If you haven’t tried them, you need to. They fold in half and slip into a little bag for travel. Just plain wonderful.
In order to get caught up on posts, the next few posts are going to be brief and not in chronological order.
Over the Labor Day holiday, I exercised restraint and only bought a few things I really needed. My favorite hairclip died after 5+ years. It was a sad day. I replaced the clip and ordered a spare. I was in desperate need of a pair of black jeans also.
These jeans were originally $110.00 and I bought them for $77.00.
These clips are usually $8.50 and I bought each for $5.95.
I also picked up a bunch of basic underwear from Victorias Secret over the holiday. They were running a promotion where if you buy 7+ pairs, each pair would be reduced to only $4.00. I really stocked up.
How did I not know that Lululemon has a sale rack?
The other weekend I was home visiting my grandmother and had some time to kill. I popped over to Birkdale Village and saw they have a Lululemon store. Somehow I had missed that it had been in that shopping center for 3 years already. I just hadn’t noticed. I went in just to look around and see what was new, and then I saw the sale rack. It was pretty picked over, but I did find a great new pair of shorts.
These super light weight shorts were reduced from $68.00 to $49.00. They are my new favorite shorts and they go great with the black top I bought from Target. These Pace Perfect shorts are still on sale online! Get a pair before they are gone!
C9 by Champion at Target is my new favorite thing.
They are offering the latest in activewear trends and the price can’t be beat!
I have been doing my walking and outdoor work in t-shirts and they become heavy with moisture this time of year. I needed to freshen up my fitness wardrobe and couldn’t believe how many different styles Target offers. I purchased 4 tops and a pair of cropped running pants. That’s 5 items for what only 1 or 2 would have cost at Lululemon.
Performance Long Tank $14.99
Mesh Back Active Tank Top $16.99
Premium Mesh Capri $34.99
These items are great deals on their own, but keep an eye on Target’s Cartwheel app. They often offer promotions for athletic apparel!
