{new in} Zara, Marshalls & The Splurge

I've been doing a lot of shopping lately...oops. But I have been pretty good about not spending too much the past few months. As of right now I am going to try not to shop until the final reductions in the Net-a-Porter sale, which should be in a few weeks.  Here's a roundup of my recent purchases:

I picked up 2 Equipment blouses and Current/Elliott Jeans at a sample sale yesterday. I have been searching for an Equipment blouse in my size that wouldn't break the bank and when I saw signs for a sample sale on Monday night I HAD to stop in on Tuesday before work! The blouses were $50 each. Expensive, yes, but cheaper than anywhere else, so I pounced. I bought a Brett blouse in purple (with some taping) and a Sophie blouse in pink/purple animal print! I also have been wanting a new pair of skinny jeans in a light wash (I haven't had any in a couple years) and these were only $41 as opposed to over $200! Perfection! They are SO soft, I wanted to die when I touched them, obviously I didn't.

Zara: I bought these adorable animal print shorts and floral print top. I also picked up this playsuit but it didn't fit me right.

Marshalls: Picked up these B.O.C. sandals to walk to work in. So far, so good!

Hautelook: Bought this Winter Kate top with store credit! Isn't it cute? It's not my usual style but I'm trying to branch out.

Roundabout Resale: This was my splurge...Manolo Blahnik sandals. I never thought I would own a pair, but when I was checking out Roundabout a couple weekends ago (they were having 20% off for Memorial Day) I saw a pile of white boxes and one shoe perched on top. I looked and they didn't have my size. The closest they had was a 9.5 so I tried them just for fun and surprisingly they FIT!  I walked around the store trying to decide and then bit the bullet and got them. After all, when do you have to chance to buy MANOLOs for 70% off retail. Exactly. :)  Aren't they amazing?!
