{recap} Wardrobe Update - January

Normally my wardrobe updates get wiped clean between Winter and Spring but I think for this year I'll keep it full until 2017. That way I can really keep an eye on what I'm adding to my closet all year. It's easy to get carried away when you only show 6 months of purchases at a time. So we're starting with a clean slate for January's update rather than keeping September - December as well.

Anywhooooo....on to this month's new buy(s)! I ended up not buying anything in Net-a-Porter's End of Season Sale. But not for a lack of trying. I ordered a gorgeous pair of thigh high boots and unfortunately they didn't fit (aka I'm too short for super tall boots) so I had to return them.

After I returned the boots I got a notification from eBay that an item I've been wanting for quite some time was relisted! The Saint Laurent patchwork blouse! It was listed for $599.99 but I got the seller to go down to $350! I had $25 in my PayPal account, $80 from a dress I returned at Christmas AND some Christmas money from my Grandma for the rest. So, technically, it's a Christmas gift, but it's still hard to see the money leave my bank account. (I'll share the full story in a feature post, unless it doesn't fit! It was supposed to arrive on Monday but the snowstorm ruined that so it will be waiting for me when I get home from my vacation.)

I also got a sweater from J.Crew at the outlets, but I used a gift card so it doesn't really count. *wink*

  4. i'm curious to see your boots

  5. You got such a great deal on that blouse, and it looks so fun with all the prints. I look forward to seeing how you wear it - hoping it fits so it's more of a success story than the boots!
