I love shopping (which is why I’m the Shopping Blogger over at Yummy Mummy Club) but I can’t possibly buy EVERY great deal I find (ha ha!) Still, I CAN share my favorite finds with you! This post is a mix of recent purchases along with some items that I loved but didn’t buy.
|Purchased: JACOB jacket|
My favorite purchase is this jacket from the JACOB outlet. I’d been looking at these ZARA tweed jackets , but they fit strangely around my shoulders. This was originally priced at $139, with 50% off. Yet when I was checking out, it rung up for $29…such a steal!!!
|JACOB dress, JACOB top, ZARA jacket|
I also tried on this blue dress and the lace capped shirt at JACOB. Seeing pictures of Kate Middleton on the Royal Tour makes me want to wear more dresses, but I want one that’s slightly longer than this blue one. I bought the white shirt – it’s a simple and classic piece and would look great paired with slim black pants. I purchased the quilted blue jacket on the right from ZARA, but I’m not sure if I should keep it. I’ve been looking for a lightweight, slim-fitting quilted jacket (especially useful when traveling) – but perhaps I should wait and invest in a classic Barbour jacket instead?
|Didn’t Purchase: Rockstud Dupes from Urban Planet|
I don’t usually shop at Urban Planet – but my friend S and I decided to check it out – and we were SO surprised to see these Valentino Rockstud dupes for $35! I’ve spotted many inspired shoes – but these are the first exact copies I’ve seen.
|Didn’t Purchase: Bucket Bag from Old Navy|
Apparently bucket bags are going to be very big this season (along with backpacks…but I’ll pass on those!) I thought these bags at Old Navy were very well-made, and a fun way to indulge in the bucket trend without spending a lot of money.
|Didn’t Purchase: Michael Kors Wallet|
I spotted this adorable Michael Kors Hamilton Wallet at Winners – I love the vibrant orange colour as well as the tiny MK lock! However, half of the wallet was a phone holder, and I like carrying my phone separately. Speaking of adorable MK items, have you seen their tiny Hamilton bag? It fits next to nothing but is so darn cute!
My last set of purchases was thanks to my friend T. One of her friends owns a showroom and only sells wholesale lots to department stores…luckily for us, she made an exception and let us shop there at wholesale prices. This necklace was only $14 (!!!) It was hard not to ransack the store…but I tried to be very selective, and only purchased one other necklace and a bracelet, as well as some gifts for friends.
Hope you enjoyed virtual shopping with me! If you want some more eye candy, click over to check out all the pretties I spotted at the Indigo preview last week!
