Wearing Now: From the Rack

Top: Theory - $35 via Nordstrom Rack (ancient, similar here)
Skirt: M Missoni - $30 via Nordstrom Rack (similar here)
Marc Jacobs (stolen from sister)
Shoes: Burberry - $190 via Nordstrom Rack (similar here)
Sunglasses: Fendi - $80 via Nordstrom Rack (Graduation present. To myself. Here in vanilla)

I usually stalk eBay for good deals but don't underestimate the power of brick and mortar stores to bring you steep discounts. As I implied in my last post, once I finished the MCAT I was out for blood. Two months in a sensory deprivation chamber (with the occasional visit to my favorite blogs) was enough fuel to catapult me into the nearest Nordstrom Rack. If you haven't heard me before here it is again: clearance events in Nordstrom Rack correlate to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. Forget about the parent company and run to NR. 

Size note on M Missoni: The brand runs small. I took a size 6 in this skirt when I'm usually a 2/4 in other brands. Hell, my very similar Burberry skirt is a 2!

Wearing Now: New Beginnings

Dress: Theory - $35 via eBay (similar here)
Belt: J. Crew - $13 (old) (similar here)
Sunglasses: Fendi - $80 via Nordstrom Rack (recent, very similar here and budget friendly here)
Shoes: Sergio Rossi - $55 via eBay (seller: Linda's Stuff, BNIB; similar here)

Finally free, friends! Once I shed the MCAT shackles I sprinted to the nearest Nordstrom Rack (the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale correlates quite nicely to NR clearance events - check out your local stores) and bought a couple of items I've long had on my mind. I'm in the process of internally overhauling the blog so bear with me as I schlep through this makeover.
