Wearing Now: Browns

Sweater: J. Crew - $20 via eBay (similar here)
Jeans: J Brand - $40 via eBay (essentially here)
Leather jacket: Cole Haan - $150 via eBay (here)
Sunglasses: Fendi - $80 via Nordstrom Rack
Bag: Celine
Shoes: Burberry - $180 via Nordstrom Rack (similar here)

About a week after buying the Celine I'm convinced that it is the best purchase I've ever made (barely topping the leather jacket you see here, though, which was actually a gift from my boyfriend). I haven't been tempted to browse eBay or stop by Nordstrom Rack because I'd rather spend my time and money buying exactly what I want without distractions. I need a new wallet (my Coach wristlet is like a mini purse and better fits a high school kid) and a camel or wine colored winter coat (the ones I have are desperately old and frumpy, and need to retire), so while I find the perfect additions there will be no extraneous spending. Every purchase should make financial sense, be needed and used, and make you happy. That's my strategy.

Have you bought anything that makes you happy lately?


  1. I went into Nordstrom Rack last week and man I swear that I was put under a spell and threw so many things into my cart because they all just made me so happy. Then I realized that I was on a buyers high and had to put it back for when I can really afford it.

    The purse is seriously perfect. I love the colors in it!

  2. Amazing bag!
    Stop by sometimes and if you like follow me,
    I'll definitely follow back :)


  3. Loving your browns and blacks together...and that bag is KILLER. I seriously can't stand how gorgeous it is!!!

  4. I am so glad you purchased that bag while in NYC. The jacket is beautiful and Tom did a great job when he purchased it for you! As for wallets, I am sure you can find a great deal on one from Ebay, I have bought expensive ones in the past, but always use the 5 year old, leather, scratch resistant one from BR. That thing has 18 credit card slots, 5 bill slots, and a zip pocket. It's the perfect continental style wallet.

  5. i love the clean lines!
    and your bag is to die for. x

    I absolutely adore your blog!
