3.1 Phillip Lim for Target (for real)

As you all know, the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target line has absolutely FLOWN off the shelves.  I even think a majority of the handbags were completely sold out online within a few hours.  I have learned that living in a smaller suburb does have its advantages, though, because I was able to snag some of the bags!

I have to say that my favorite piece of clothing from the collection is the navy and green sweater.  Unfortunately, I did not buy it immediately and missed out on adding it to my closet (sad day).

So what do you think? Should I keep the weekender tote or not?

Find of the Week

This past week, I ventured to one of my favorite consignment shops in the area to kill some time, and I found something every girl needs: gorgeous black flats.  Not only were these flats beautiful, but they were brand new Stuart Weitzman black mary jane flats.  I tried them on just to see if they would fit and they were perfect!  I was certainly surprised when I found out that they were only $30 (lucky day for me, huh?!).  Thanks to my wonderful find, my transition into a fall wardrobe will be that much easier, and I’m sure I will get much loving wear out of these beautiful shoes:

Shop ‘Til You Drop

Over the last few months I have been introduced to some fabulous and new, to me, shops that have changed my shopping perspective.  As a twenty-something, I have realized that this is the time when a wardrobe shift is needed and now is the time to begin building a fabulous and timeless closet.  This effort has resulted in the search for good quality pieces that are worth the investment, and even some competitively priced fun pieces 😉 .  Over the course of my wardrobe journey, I have stumbled upon a few shops that are making my huge shift, on a small budget, possible.

1) ASOS

Those who love fashion already know the name ASOS, but I have only recently discovered it (and LOVE IT)!  This online store carries a variety of brands, but I personally prefer their own brand.  ASOS takes high fashion trends and fashion forecasting and creates quality garments and accessories that don’t break the bank.  It is a fantastic place to find wardrobe staples, like the black skinnies I just purchased for $20!  Another plus: FREE shipping and FREE returns.  Seriously, you cannot pass this one up.  

2) Bauble Bar

If you love jewelry, this is the place for you!  They carry beautiful pieces at affordable prices, and they often have sales where you can snag select bracelets for $10 or a necklace for $20.  Like ASOS, they offer FREE shipping and FREE returns.  Talk about a girl’s dream.

3) Stella & Dot

This is a prime spot for affordable accessories, and I’m sure you’ve seen their bracelets featured in many fashion blog posts across the board (especially their renegade cluster bracelet).  Though the price point is slightly higher than that of Bauble Bar, they tend to offer classic pieces that are worth the investment.

4) Poshmark

Poshmark is one of the best organized re-sell portals I have seen.  The site mainly operates via an app for your phone (iPhone only for the time being, but an Android app is coming soon), where you can easily list and buy new and used items.  The items range from Roxy to Rodarte, from American Eagle to Valentino; honestly, the sky is the limit on Poshmark.  Shipping may not be free, but it is definitely low enough to make it worth it, and some sellers will bundle items so you can save on shipping.  Another plus, the app allows you to comment on the item and possibly haggle the price down.

That’s my list so far, but I cannot wait to find new, affordable places to shop!  Any suggestions?

XOXO,
