I did some fall shopping this weekend. First on my list was skinny jeans – when the weather turns cold, there is nothing more comfortable than skinny jeans worn with warm boots. I took advantage of the Old Navy 16th anniversary sale, and picked up some skinny jeans for $16. However, after trying them on at home, I realised I liked the fit of Garage jeans better – so I returned the ON jeans and picked up some Garage ones instead.
I also picked up grey skinny jeans from Garage (Their denim sale has 50% off your second pair of jeans). I found the black v-neck sweater at Smart Set. It is soft and silky, and was on offer for $14.99. My boots are Payless faux Uggs from last year.
My last purchase was a charcoal grey sweater from Suzy Shier. It is a good basic – and has cute little pockets near the waist – but they didn’t show up in my pic. I’m not too happy with this store though – they have a BAD return policy – which they didn’t mention when I made my purchase. Apparently – they only offer store credit – NO refunds! I actually purchased 3 items from them (because I like to try them on at home with my own clothes to see if they work with my wardrobe) so I asked the sales associate what their return policy was – and she said 14 days. If she had said they don’t offer refunds, I would not have purchased all 3 items! Now I have around $40 of store credit -grrr! I’m sure I’ll find a use for them, as they have some quality staples at the store – but a lot of their stuff is quite tacky and cheap-looking!
I still have a couple more items to buy – I need a light fall coat and 2 evening-appropriate tops. My Balenciaga savings fund is quite pathetic at the moment – so far I’ve only saved $7! Still….I’ll get there eventually!
In skin care news – I’m excited because I have a dermatologist appointment this week. Apparently my dermatologist is booked up until January – but luckily the receptionist found an early spot for me! I believe my acne is hormonal – and although I’ve tried a lot of different treatments for my skin – I still have a moderate acne problem – so I hope that the dermatologist will have an effective solution for me. I’ll update here after my appointment.
