{outfit} Yellow and Rose

This jacket has become my official Easter jacket. I feel weird wearing it most of the time, but the light yellow shade makes it perfect for Easter.  This was what I wore for our celebrations on Saturday with my Dad's side of the family.  This Carven dress is already getting lots of use! I am already planning to wear it again for a blogger get together next month, unless the weather doesn't cooperate.

{closet-worthy} eBay-watching

I am always watching clothes on eBay even though I know I won't buy most of them. So, rather than watching them be sold to strangers I thought I would share some of my recent "watches" with you in case you are as in love with them as I am.  Click the images to go to the listing. (everything is under $150 at the time of this post)

{project fab} I Have Confidence

Marshalls is one of my favorite places to shop because I know I will always get a great deal.  I can find my favorite designers - like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and even Equipment - at amazing prices well below retail. Anyone who knows me will be shocked to see this outfit. Why? Because I'm wearing...white jeans. I always said I would never wear them (for fear of getting them dirty/I feel like they're see-through.) I guess this is why they say 'never say never.'  Since Marshalls makes me confident while shopping, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and wear something I was afraid of.  First white jeans, next, who knows! Maybe a date? ;)

While Lydia was taking photos of this outfit I was singing 'I Have Confidence' from The Sound of Music to myself. *I've always longed for adventure, to do the things I've never dared!* Yes, I'm very strange.  Knowing I got these pieces at amazing prices made that a bit easier. Even though know one else knows I'm wearing an Equipment blouse (except other fashionistas) it gives me confidence. Do you ever feel like that? Maybe you're wearing a certain pair of shoes that you got for dirt cheap and that fact puts a bit more spring in your step.  Or is that just me?

Mother Denim 'The Rascal' Crop Jean: $69.99, retail $196
Equipment 'Mina Tie Front' Blouse: $59.99, retail $198
Solitare Top: $16.99, retail around $32
Etienne Aigner Sunglasses: $9.99, retail around $35

Total Spent: $156.96 | Retail: $461 | Savings: $304.04

Also wearing:  Lauren Ralph Lauren sweater (Lord & Taylor), Marc by Marc Jacobs bag  (Saks Friends & Family Sale),  Necklace: Indulgems (Gilt), Guess heels (Marshalls)

I couldn't decide between the Equipment blouse I'm wearing and a second top (which was only $17!) In the end I kept both, everyone should splurge once in a while! So watch out for the second top in a future post. Probably with these jeans.  I could have gotten shoes and a bag in place of the Equipment blouse, but I decided to go for it.

{favorite things} Etro Patchwork Blazer

I haven't done a favorite things post in a while, so let's go! Today I'm featuring my Etro blazer.  I scored it for $188 at Roundabout; they retail for over $1500. There are so many amazing details that you guys don't see when I do outfit posts so I figured now was a perfect time to share!  I've worn this numerous times since buying it back in December: Mad About You, Valentine's Day and Fire & Rain to share a few.

Also, Daniel Radcliffe and I apparently have the same taste since he wore a similar patchwork style blazer on Kelly and Michael earlier this month: evidence.

{closet-worthy} Marchesa Voyage Mix Maxi Dress

Can we talk about how GORGEOUS this Marchesa Voyage dress is? Maybe it's just the photo, but I am in love. I'm not usually one for maxi dresses, deep v-necks or florals, but it is beautiful.  It is also similar to a Free People dress I tried on last month, which is a lot more budget friendly.
