Happy Wednesday and thanks so much for reading! Today I wanted to round up a few of the good deals and fancy finds I’ve gotten the past few weeks (Manolos!) PLUS share my all time favorite pant with you all. Keep scrolling!
J. Crew Ruffle Top [new, $10] Gap Skinny Cropped Pants [new, $30] Manolo Blahnik Leopard Flats [secondhand, $20] Chanel Sunnies [secondhand, $35] Rebecca Minkoff Shoulder Bag [new, $55]
Outfit total: $150
First of all...these shoes!!
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve definitely already been introduced. These lovely suede leopard print cuties were an eBay find that I got only $20!! A typical pair of Manolo flats can set you back anywhere from $500-thousands! This pair has definitely seen some wear and will require a trip to the cobbler for a pick me up, but I definitely think they have more life to live. Never turn down a double digit pair of Manolo Blahniks!
A little history: I have had SUCH a difficult time with jeans and pants. Whatever fits up my hips is too big in the booty and waist. I end up with a serious case of saggy bottom! But NOT with the Gap skinny ankle jean/pant. I love these pants because they are made up of a stretchy, almost leggings like material that fits super close and doesn’t sag. Plus the high waist and crop length are tres chic and make me feel like a sophisticate 1950s housewife. Who doesn’t want to feel like that?
IN LOVE with this one shoulder ruffle top, and feeling super #blessed I live in an area where I can sport something like this in January! I actually just bought this top this weekend at J. Crew. If you love their preppy chic pieces as much as I do, run don’t walk to one right now because they currently have the old season on clearance with an additional 50% off. While it is final sale, I scored this top for only $10!
Thanks so much for reading! As always, leave a comment below to let me know what you enjoy reading and what you want to see in the future! :*
