Recent Acquisitions: Lazy Wednesday Edition

...also known as an I-absolutely-hated-yesterday's-outfit-so much-that-I-changed-into-something-I've-worn-recently-on-the-blog-during-my-lunch-break-and-therefore-don't-have-a-new-outfit post. It happens to all of us, doesn't it? (The rejected top is getting consigned pronto, in fact.) So instead I present to you all manner of goodies that are on their way to me now.

Antique Magnolias Blouse - Anthropologie

I've been lusting after this beautiful top forever, and it finally went on sale! Mine!!

Black ivory peplum dress - Dorothy Perkins

I've been wanting something with peplum lately, and Dorothy Perkins is just cranking out the goodies on that score. The best part? The price is always right! I couldn't decide between nude, blue or peach, but I finally picked this amazing graphic print. It has lots of potential to either go big with some bright platforms or toned down with a buttoned cardigan. I just wish they'd offer free return shipping so I can shop with a little less risk, though. There are some styles I want to try but I'm just not sure if they'll work for me. International return shipping is no joke...

Hopefloat - Nine West (via

Believe it or not, I don't own a pair of black closed-toe platforms. I clearly had to remedy that with this crocodile-embossed pair - and priced at half off!

Stripe ponte pencil skirt - Dorothy Perkins

Stripes? Pencil skirt? Seems like a no-brainer to me. Gonna wear it just like this ASAP.

Leandra on White Air Jacket - Tibi (via Power Support USA)

Confession: this is my 5th iPhone case since I got my pretty white iPhone for Christmas. (This amazing case is now relegated to second place.) But how could I resist???

Naked2 - Urban Decay (via Sephora)

Everyone and their mom seems to be talking about this palette. I loves me some neutral eyeshadows (I haven't been able to wear anything but the Too Faced Naked Eye Palette since I got it in the fall), so I caved. I have yet to really experiment with combinations, though. Any favorites? I know you have it, too...

And now that I've shared this with you, I declare myself officially banned from shopping until the end of March. I'm serious. I have to be... I think I'm going to need your help, though.


  1. Jessica,
      All your goodies are fabulous! I really love the dess and can't wait to see how you style it. The embroidered blouse is stunning, and I think my favorite is the phone cover, phones are so generic...yours will be very stylish.

  2. Oh la la!  The skirt and the dress are WOW!  You have such a great eye for style....I'm just going to play follow the leader and swipe some of you style ideas!  


Thank you so much for commenting! Reading what you have to say truly makes my day!
