recent purchases

It’s sale and clearance time for winter wear, which is timely since I don’t believe we will be seeing spring anytime soon. If you have gift cards to redeem or if you just want to score some good deals, here’s what I’ve been loving lately:

Banana Republic military shirt & raw hem crop flare jeans (also comes in a dark rinse version); Topshop ‘Mistic’ ankle boots (more sizes here).

The military shirt (size XS) and jeans (size 25/0) are true to size. I love the cropped flare jeans with the raw hem, it breaks up the the lines of the jeans and boots. The military shirt grew on me fast, at first I didn’t know what to make of it. Yet, I quickly realized that it’s one of the most fashion forward items in my wardrobe. Very Marissa Webb. The nylon satin fabric is just like the legit military issued flight jackets. You need this shirt, it’s a timeless and cool piece. Plus, it gives you the appearance of a small waist.

French Connection black tunic; J Brand waxed black jeans (old, similar); VANELi ‘Jara’ ankle wedge boots.

The tunic was a Christmas gift from my fellow fashionista friend (thank you so much, K!) and this top is amazing, it’s so dressy and comfortable. The tunic is called ‘Nightsky’ and has teeny tiny sequin studs like little stars on the front and back of the top. The length is perfect for leggings or skinny jeans. The sleeves are a soft t-shirt material, which is different from the bodice (a silky polyester which drapes beautifully). I’m wearing a size small for the tunic.

Free People sweater minidress in deep wine (also comes in grey).

I wore this yesterday but I didn’t have time to take a picture. It’s described as a minidress, but it is way too short on me to wear as a dress. It’s a tunic length on me, so I wore it over my skinny jeans. It’s also great over a pair of leggings. This is the most flattering sweater I’ve ever owned, I bought an XS size and it’s a fitted bodycon look that hugs and creates curves. The fit on the model above is looser than it is on me, I think she may have gone up to a larger size to get the longer length and dropped shoulders. The wine color is very pretty and the turtleneck-cowlneck hybrid is super cozy and it frames your face.

GapFit ballet longsleeve tee in charcoal grey and heather grey; GapFit strappy sports bra in Alluring Yellow. Online promo code LNGWKND will get you 40% off your purchase at Gap.

New gear for the new year. For me, it’s all about (showing off) the back. As you may remember, I’m addicted to the rowing machine (watch my Instagram video here), which tones your back like you wouldn’t believe and pretty much everything else for your body. Each top and sports bra should net about $24 with the promo discount.

Happy shopping and enjoy your Sunday! xx
