"You live but once; you might as well be amusing." -Coco Chanel

I'm finally going to do an update on all of the stuff I've bought recently! :) First, I'd like to show you my thrift store finds:
I fell in love with this oversized Piazza Sempione blazer and the blue interior.

This BCBG Max Azria top looks amazing on; I love the sleeves :) It looks wrinkled in the photo for some reason :/
This Theory Bergdorf Goodman exclusive cashmere sweater is so comfy! It reminds me of the Jil Sander cashmere sweater that I scored for $3.

Finally, here is the Elizabeth and James Holiday skirt I found:
I fell in love with it because it reminded me of a tutu. It's the perfect party skirt!
All of the items above were a mere $25 (altogether).

I also got a few more things thrifting. I found Salvatore Ferragamo flats that were pretty much brand new, albeit without the box, for $20. I took these photos after wearing them quite a lot lol!

I also got a blazer from Theory and a blazer from Emporio Armani for $10 together. Emporio Armani blazers/jackets are around $1,000, so I think I did pretty well! :)

I love that the interior of most Theory blazers is white, as I like to roll up the sleeves :)



I bought a few things on sale at a local boutique, as well.

 This Pencey dress is long sleeved and has a gorgeous skirt. It's called the "window dress."

 Pencey dresses are generally $200-$300, but I scored this one new for $25. :)


I got dark gray Marc by Marc Jacobs pants; perfect for fall/winter! :)

They were $228, but I got them for $29. :)



I love the simplicity of the pants. There is no back pocket design, which is awesome. They're very understated, apart from this tiny stitched MJ on the front pocket:


 I'm obsessed with this new Alice + Olivia shirt that I got. It's the perfect nude pink and the sleeves are to die for! Photographs don't capture the sleeves well, but perhaps I'll take some modeling pictures. :)


This shirt was almost $200, but I got it for around $80.



I also went to Victoria's Secret; I don't really like VS much anymore but I had a $75 gift card and I couldn't resist buying some cute new underwear....



I bought three thongs in this style:







I also got three other pairs (I did the standard 5 for $25 thing and also got another pair on top of that).



I've always loathed animal print, but lately I've taken a liking to cheetah and leopard print; I don't know why. I will always hate zebra print though. So the underwear above and the ones below are my first venture into animal print territory...


I love the lace on the back of these, and the bows on the front! :)


I also got my first bottle of Chanel nail polish! I purchased one of the new colors - graphite. I can't wait to use it! :)






At VS, I also bought new stuff for the gym.
I got a sports bra:

and some yoga pants:


For spending over $75, they gave me a free VS bag that I am not sure what to do with... It's a travel bag, so I suppose it will come in handy?

Hope everyone is having a lovely summer! xo

  3. You're awesome in finding gems at a bargain!! How did you do it?!

    I love the tutu skirt ALOT! :) It's my favourite amongst your loot. The Chanel nail polish is also making me swoon. I've been tempted to buy a bottle..just couldn't decide on the colour yet.


    I'm different from you. I love zebra prints :) Followed by Leopard prints. But zebra print stuff are not that easy to find though.
