{outfit & shopping} The Boyfriend

Tricked you with that title, didn't I? You thought I had a boyfriend...psh!  The "Boyfriend" I'm referring to in the title is my boyfriend jeans I got years ago that I never wear anymore. I decided I needed to rectify that and wore them on a shopping trip on Saturday!  I always thought I couldn't wear them to work but I realized that if I just switch the sweater for a blazer I might be able to get away with it, right?
Jeans: American Eagle $15, Tank: Ellen Tracy $12, Sweater: American Eagle $0, Sandals: Miu Miu (eBay), Purse: Chanel, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Rings: old & c/o OASAP, Watch: Michael Kors , Sunglasses Michael Kors (Marshalls) $20
I got up bright and early on Saturday to head to Lord & Taylor because their Friends and Family sale was starting and who says no to 25% off everything and 10% off cosmetics!  I wasn't too lucky in the clothing department, but I did get an amazing Ralph Lauren dress, a bit of a splurge at $112, but it was regularly $200 with 25% off and then my 25% off coupon! (The pictures don't do it justice)
Then I headed to the Chanel makeup section and got a new Vitalumiere Aqua Cream Compact foundation (trying out a different kind this time), new Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Elise and a Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzer.  I have never used bronzer before but each time I buy makeup I try to get something new, last time it was blush. So now I have almost a complete collection: foundation, mascara, eye shadow, blush, bronzer and an eye concealer...haha! What else do I need?...
Then it was off to DSW to return/exchange the Marc by Marc Jacobs heels I bought a few months ago.  I headed to the clearance section and found these amazing Seychelles sandals. They were originally $90, on sale for $59.95 and an extra 30% off, which brings us to $41.

Then I stumbled upon these amazing Gucci pumps, that go perfectly with the dress I wanted to wear to my cousins wedding in July [I had actually wanted the pink version that they had on their site but these were on sale because someone returned them...haha]! Sadly they are a half size too big (but I can just get something to put in the toes) & are not a color I would usually go for. But how could I pass up 30% off a clearance price of $269.95 PLUS $40 off PLUS $5 off (they are regularly $450)...taking us down to $144!  The Marc Jacobs shoes I exchanged were $200, so in the end I actually got $15 back for buying 2 pairs of shoes...SCORE!
