Columbus Day Shopping

Just cause I didn’t have the day off for Columbus Day didn’t mean I wasn’t going to take full advantage of all of the sales! I limited myself to J.Crew Factory (50% off everything!) and American Eagle Outfitters (40% off of everything) since there had been some things on both sites that I had been staring at. I’m not sure what I’ll end up keeping, but I can’t wait to get the packages in the mail!

Labor Day Online Shopping

With all of the Labor Day Sales, I figured I would use that to help fill some holes in my wardrobe for fall. Below is what I got and what I ended up returning!

Flare Shift Dress, XSP $39.75
The reviews on this dress said that there was incredible detail on this dress and it looked much better in person. Unfortunately, that was not really the case. The dress felt about one size too big and was much larger around the waist than I expected.
Verdict: Returned

Tweed Skirt, 0P $29.75
I ordered this skirt after seeing it on J’s Every Day Fashion. I ended up being pleasantly surprised by this skirt. It fit really well and was incredibly comfortable. Additionally, unlike other pencil skirts I’ve gotten in the past, the material was not stiff.
Verdict: Keep

3/4 Sleeve Blouse, XSP $29.75
I was hoping the blouse would be more white in person. Unfortunately, it was pink, which wasn’t what I wanted.
Verdict: Return

3/4 Lace Sleeve Top, XSP $17.44
The shoulders were a little puffy, but it looked good tucked into a skirt. Additionally, final sale.
Verdict: Keep


Black Tee (Sold Out!), XSP $12.50
I’ve been wanting a plain black shirt that I can wear to work and this fit the requirements!
Verdict: Keep

J.Crew Factory
Stripe Racerback Cami, 0 $29.50
I’ve been watching this top for a while and decided it was finally time to buy it. I liked how loose the top was and while it wasn’t the best hanging loose, it looked great tucked in.
Verdict: Keep

Racerback Cami, 0 $27
See above review, same feeling.
Verdict: Keep

Cotton Zipper Top  XS $21
I actually got this in red and blue (which is apparently sold out now). I was a little hesitant with the whole horizontal stripes thing, but I love how soft this shirt turned out to be. It was a little baggy, but I can’t wait to wear it once it gets colder.
Verdict: Keep


Critter Charm Necklace $12
Love giraffes. Adorable necklace.
Verdict: Keep

Ann Taylor
Over the Knee Riding Boots $173.60 /

I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair of black boots that are work appropriate and i was hoping these would fit the bill. While the leather was smooth and the shoe seemed very well made, it slouched too much around the ankle and I wasn’t as comfortable with wearing an over the knee boot to work. I’m hoping to find a similar pair for less money elsewhere.
Verdict: Return


Colorblock Pencil Skirt 0P $76.30
This was another item that I had been staring at for a bit. I had tried it on at an Ann Taylor Event at the end of July and figured I would wait until the price dropped more. However, after getting it, I think it may still have been a little too expensive for me.
Verdict: Return
