Ann Taylor – YESPLEASE

YESPLEASE Indeed!
Ann Taylor was giving away shoes over the Easter weekend, which was perfect because I realized that I didn’t have a single pair of navy or black closed toe heels. Their shoes are so comfortable and the sizing is reliable. I can buy them online with confidence in the fit.

My other Ann Taylor sale order arrived this week and the pants are wonderful. Probably my favorite pants ever actually. Unfortunately the skirt did not work so It’s going back.

Ann Taylor – HOPTOIT

Ann Taylor is 40% off right now for Easter.

I have been desperate for a pair of navy pants for work so I jumped on this deal.
I also ordered a super cute skirt that will carry me though the fall.

If you have a need for some basics or a pair of really great work shoes, now’s the time!

A New Day Indeed

Target has launched a new store brand called A New Day and I’m digging it.
I put more in my buggy on Saturday than I have on any previous Target run ever. I did make myself narrow my purchases down considerably to just one item.

These Velma Slip On Pointy Toe Mules are only $22.99!
I love it when I can participate in a trend, but not shell out the big bucks so these were an exciting find. They also come in black, but I knew I wouldn’t wear the black ones over the black shoes I already own and enjoy so I went with this dusty pink pair.

I went online when I got home and found the items I loved in the store and a few that my store didn’t carry that are worth checking out. Links below!

  1. Velma Slip On Pointy Toe Mules in Black
  2. Rebe Backless Loafer Mules
  3. Kona Slip On Loafer Mules in White
  4. Miriam Crossband Quilted Mules in Red
  5. Junebug Mules in Silver
  6. Wrap Crew Luxe Pullover in Grey
  7. Long Sleeve Shirtdress in Olive and Blue
  8. Who What Wear 3/4 Sleeve Mixed Lace Pull-Over Top in White

The Real Real: You win some, you lose some.

My sister got engaged in the Spring of 2017 so as you can imagine, we have been wrapped up in the plans for the big event.

During our recent trip to Raleigh, my mom picked out a dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner from Charlotte’s. Because the perfect dress requires the perfect shoes, we had been trolling for just the right shoe and I thought I had found it.

It is pretty universally known that Manolo Blahnik makes an exquisite and comfortable shoe. Since my mom doesn’t feel very comfortable in heels, I figured she could use the brand name to entice her to wear heels and why not pick a pair from the god of shoes himself.

I found these beautiful suede heeled mules on The Real Real and was confident they would be perfect with her dress. The shoes arrived over the weekend and they were stunning in person. There was just one problem. THEY WERE TOO SMALL!

Luckily The Real Real accepts returns and these beautiful shoes are on their way back to find a new home. [They are size 39.5 if you want to snag them once they are back in TRR’s system.] By returning the shoes, I freed up the funds to put towards a dress for my sister’s bridesmaid’s brunch.

This dress by Tanya Taylor was only $75.00 with 15% off. There is a small pull at the front (tape marks the spot), but who cares! It’s in excellent shape and I can’t wait to wear it. This is the first thing I have bought for the wedding other than my bridesmaid’s dress.

Now it’s my turn to find the perfect shoes to go with my new dress.
Stay tuned!

 

SWEATERS, SWEATERS, SWEATERS

I’ve been on quite the spending spree lately and I’m not even the least bit sorry about it.
I had a bunch of sweaters bite the dust last winter and now that it is cold, I have been wearing the same couple of sweaters over and over. I needed to freshen up my sweater game.

Gap made a sweater like this a few years ago and I hate that I only bought one. I didn’t make the same mistake this time. I bought two of this Merino Turtleneck Sweater with Side Slits, one grey and one black.

I also purchased this Ruffle Crewneck in Boiled Wool. I love the color of the sweater and the ruffle is so fun, but the fit was terrible. I read the reviews online and people reported that it fit small. I would say the fit is true to size except for length. This sweater runs very short. I sized up to account for this, but it was still too small. Unfortunately I had to return the sweater.

ALL THE SNAKESKIN

I just realized something. The last two items I purchased through Poshmark were both snake patterned. Maybe the tides are turning from my leopard obsession.

This J.Crew Collection blouse is the favorite top in my closet at the moment. I wear it at least once a week. I don’t know what this top would have originally been, but I bought it for $42.00. I had credit on Poshmark from selling clothes I no longer wear and so I ended up only paying around $28.00 out of pocket.

My sister has put me on to French Sole New York (FSNY) shoes. She wears them to work and can walk through the city comfortably. I do a good bit of walking on uneven surfaces and since being on crutches, my usual heels are no longer an option. In addition to a black pair of FSNY shoes purchased this year, I bought these snake skin flats for $45.00. Again, I had credit from my own Poshmark sales so I only spend about $15.00 out of pocket.

I absolutely love being able to trade in things I never wear for fresh new items!

If you haven’t tried Poshmark, check it out! Check out my “closet” also! There are so many great deals to be had on this site. They have a really great app too.

ANN TAYLOR 50% OFF AND FREE SHIPPING!

Ann Taylor recently threw a really great sale.
Everything was 50% off and they added free shipping!
I took that opportunity to get caught up on my Ann Taylor wish list.

This Boatneck Flare Cuff Blouse has been on my list for a while. I love simple blouses that I can pair with skirts or slacks for work. I was running low on basics so I bought this top in winter white and black. They are pretty affordable to begin with priced at $69.50, but I was ecstatic to buy them at the reduced price of $34.75.

I also bought this simple Satin Trim Keyhole Top for only $29.75. It was originally $59.50.

I have been meaning to replace my old, and in some cases tattered, collared dress shirts with a new set of basics. Mission accomplished!
