Hello, girls, hope you all enjoyed a lovely weekend. Did anyone do anything fun or buy anything fabulous?
I am fortunate enough to have a job that gives us MLK Day off, so I am vegging at home today!:) Gotta love these three-day weekends!!! I'm already counting down until the next one, LOL.
Well, I haven't been overly "wowed" by most of the newer items the stores have been introducing these days. Good for my wallet, I suppose, but boring for a fashion blogger who gleans inspiration from the beautiful pops of color, luxurious, silky fabrics, sleek designs, and intricate details that tend to bombard us at every turn as we march closer toward those sunny, warmer days. I'm hoping that this is just an "off" point in the year, and that things will improve greatly as the stores turn their attention to spring and summer items. I hope so, as I'm starting to feel seriously uninspired.
There are a few items that have caught my eye recently, though. Two are from Anthropologie, one is from The Limited, and the last is a great vintage piece that I came across by accident.
First up is the gorgeous little Femme Trench Jacket from Elevenses. I do not remember seeing this online before, so maybe it just popped up today, but it is GORGEOUS! Featuring a neutral shade and loads of pretty details, this would be the perfect topper to any spring outfit. I adore the cascading ruffles down the front and the adorable little buttons on the pockets and shoulders. Even the back of this beauty has amazing attention to detail.
Next up, I'm loving this brilliant blue Gathering Blossoms Top by Edme & Esyllte. The color is simply gorgeous and this would look so lovely paired with a crisp white skirt or slacks. It's pretty pricey at $118, but I would definitely get this on sale.
This next little gem was first introduced to me by the lovely Kim of Anthroholic. In my opinion, a girl can never possess too many polka dot dresses, and this one is just adorable! It's from The Limited, of all places, which is a store that I've ignored for the better part of a decade.
It appears kind of short in the product shot, but after seeing it reviewed on Kim's blog, it's much more modest in length when not showcased on a 6 foot tall model.;) You could pair this with a sweet little cardigan and tights to winterize the look, or toughen up the girliness with a cropped leather jacket. Any way you wear this, it's super cute!
Printed Dot Strapless Dress from The Limited
Last up is this ADORABLE little vintage mini-coat that I found randomly online. I just love the gorgeous camel shade, and the fit and details on this are lovely. I WANT!!!
Well, that about wraps things up for now, but I hope everyone enjoyed my latest picks. Enjoy the rest of your day!
