Recent Buys

Hello there!

Wow.... I have been feeling very spendy lately. It's so not good in any way, shape or form when bills are due. I have been shopping non-stop and thought I would share what I've recently bought! I am in no way bragging about what I have, I just love reading and seeing hauls, and I love doing them as well! Also, I won't have an outfit post up until Friday because A) my photographer (aka my mom) is away on a business trip and B) I am doing a special collaboration with Smartling to show you fine folks how different cultures and countries inspire my own personal style! I can't wait to cook up something fun!

I was not disappointed after buying this palette. I was so skeptical because it's seriously $58 and that is a hefty price tag for three highlight shades. I sort of just took a leap and purchased it. I do NOT regret it at all. The packaging alone was apart of the reason I wanted it. It's so sleek looking and the powders are so soft. They do leave a bit of product over the pan after you apply them, but it's a simple clean-up by just blowing the mess away. They are light, and leave the most gorgeous shimmer on your cheek bones when applied with a fan brush.

I had been searching for a great black leather skirt EVERYWHERE. I was so hesitant to buy one online because you never know how it will fit, and I hate sending items back because it takes forever. I just stumbled into Zara one day, and saw this beauty. It fits like a glove, and I love the length of it. I sort of wanted a leather mini-skirt, and this one hits a couple of inches above the knee, which is perfect. I love wearing this with a button-down or even a sweater for the colder months ahead.

I think I go on the Baublebar website every other day, just to see what they have, and NEVER buy anything. I finally made a purchase last week, and am mad at myself for not buying anything sooner! I love their jewelry! It's an such an affordable price point, and extremely good quality. I purchased this gold tassel bracelet, which is lovely, and a pearl ear cuff which I am OBSESSED with. I have both on now, and never want to take them off! The package they came in was also beautiful. They sent me a free necklace with my purchase as well!

Zara makes me feel some sort of way. Yes, their clothing can get extremely pricey, but they offer such stylish clothes for way less than what they could be sold for. I bought these because they are so out of my comfort zone. They are wide leg grid pattern slacks and I LOVE them. I really wasn't going to get them, but then I thought of all the ways I could style them. I can really see them working with some black heels and either a black button down, or even a black t-shirt with a blazer thrown on top. I think they would look amazing going out on a date, or even for an interview. I can not wait to style them for you guys!

I'm sorry I'm obsessed with Zara. When I scooped up those trousers, I saw these and melted. They are so freaking perfect. I realized I didn't really have flat black ankle boots. I have some with a 2 or 3 inch heel, but not flatter ones. I am obsessed with the pointy toe, and the leather is so soft. I can not wait to wear them with some ripped up black skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. They are perfect for fall, and so versatile, so they will be easy to wear with a lot of my wardrobe.

I finally broke down and got some Leigh jeans. I initially wanted the Jamie jeans, but are literally sold out everywhere. I went into Nordstrom, and saw that these literally have the same look as the Jamie jeans, so I went for them. They are so comfy and the knee rip is so chic. I think I've worn them like three days in a row because I'm lazy, but they've really held their shape. They're a tad high-waisted, which I love.

Yes, I got the iPhone 6. Yes, I love it. It's so thin and I love the bigger screen, which is great for blogging and instagramming, which are my two favorite things. It is taking some getting used too, since the screen is such a difference. I am also LOVING how it's rose gold. I think it's so chic! I am glad I pre-ordered it as well, so it came right to my house on Friday without having to wait in any lines!

I finally caved and bought Roses De Chloe. I think I have wanted a full size of this perfume for about a year now. I never bought it though because 2.5 ounces is $120, which is RIDICULOUS. That is so much money for literally no perfume. I actually went on eBay and found a great deal on a 2.5 oz. bottle. I love the packaging and the smell is like no other. I love it so much, it is such a clean scent.

Last but not least, my new heels! I bought these last week when Altuzarra for Target went live. I scooped them up immediately because those designer collaborations go so quickly. I love these. They are a great classic black pair of heels and I can see myself pairing them with the grid trousers from Zara. I also love how there is support on the back of them heel so my feet aren't sliding all over the place. They were at a good price point too! You can never have too many pairs of black heels.

Hopefully I start saving, because this spending is getting crazy! I need to start saving for NYC in December! What have you bought lately? I would love to know!
