Fall Wrap Dress and Ferragamo Vara on Sale

Sale Alert: Salvatore Ferragamo Vara Pumps on sale at 25% off. I just ordered 3 pairs to try. Vara pumps in Rosso and black patent, and quilted Vara in Nero Nappa. I don't see Vara on sale all that often, even when they do, the sizes were all gone. I am surprised to see that most of the sizes are still available all the way down to 4.5. In some cases (black patent) C width is available. How's that!

Hi everyone! Long time no post! I have been very busy with work. More and more so with new project going on and a lot of west coast trips coming up. Half of the time will be spent outside away from home next month. So posts will be more sparse. I want to make sure that I mnntion one item that I bought a few colors of - love it so much that I decided to stock up. That is the Sloan-Fit Slim Ankle Pant. After getting the red version (worn here), I decided to purchase the black and navy also. They fit very well and have a fantastic slimming effect. Pants never looked good on me, that's why I have been avoiding them. These pants are the first pairs that I own that I love. Great for work and casual wear. I also bought the window pane version just to see. (on me here) Again, fits me nicely, but pattern is less versatile and harder to pair. I wear 00P for all of these pants. The pants are stretchy and comfy. Also these pants are labeled "dry clean" but I washed the red pair in cold water (machine delicate setting) and lay flat to dry (not dry in dryer). The red pair came out unshrunk and ready to wear off the rack (no need to iron). Some ladies in the review said they washed and dried it in the machine and it shrank, so be aware of that. Don't put it in the dryer unless your goal is to shrink it a size. Banana Republic is running a 30% off full-priced items now online with code BRFALL.

Today's outfit is an older purchase from Ann Taylor. Check Print Wrap dress a nice knit dress that is low maintenance and flattering. I like the fact that they put a very tiny snap at the cross of the wrap to keep it secure. It gives me an idea that I should do that for all my wrap dresses.

Take 2 - Geo Print Legging Jeans and Soft Sweater

10/7 update - J.Crew extra 40% off final sale with code EXTRA40. My picks:
  -- Classic Schoolboy blazer in Navy (just over $100 after extra discount)
  -- Merino boyfriend Sweater (Love the classic Navy color)
  -- Merino Tippi Sweater (love the light sky, have camel in xxs and love)
  -- Everly Suede Pumps in purple haze (saturated color suede pumps, J.Crew does it better than everyone else)
  -- Silk Boy Blouse with Contrast Trim in pale seascape (so classic)
  -- Schoolboy blazer in tipped wool (the vintage mahogany strikes a chord)
  -- Collection Featherweight Cashmere cardigan (the standard pink is so cute)
  -- Collection featherweight cashmere cardigan in windowpane check (only small sizes left, just cute)

I have been really loving these Gap Geo print jean leggings. Styling it once again for a more casual look. I removed the silk blouse from last pairing and pulled on a soft cotton v-neck sweater (found in a corner of my closet, massively wrinkled, sorry sweater!), voila, I got myself a casual monochromatic look.

Thanks to Jean's post here, I learned that Revolve Clothing gives 30% discount on new customer orders (with some brand exceptions).  I livechatted with them and got $15 refunded retrospectively on this House of Harlow leather necklace within 2 minutes. Super happy that this versatile necklace only cost $35 in the end. :)

Ann Taylor Crepe Full Skirt Dress in Nevis Green + Woodlore Shoe Trees

I want to get this quick post out there to tell you how happy I am with the Woodlore Shoe Trees I bought last weekend from Zappos. I wear size 6 shoes (sometimes 5.5) and ordered a pair of size S shoe trees from on Saturday. The shoe trees arrived Monday. Wow! I stuck them into these gorgeous pair of suede pumps (like so) that I haven't been able to wear because the toe box was just way too small and hurt me after 10 minutes of wearing. The next day I tried it on, the toe box was noticeably stretched and much more comfortable. The shoes are a bit too long on me, so sticking the whole thing in there was a mistake, because it actually made it longer as well. Fortunately, after letting them sit with only the front parts in the shoes the back parts just resting on the shoes the shoes bounced back a little. I stuck a pair of heel grips I purchased in Target store over the weekend and wore them to work today. No problem. The shoes were comfortable after a whole day. You can see how excited I was. I love the color of these pumps, but because of the fit problem they were sitting on the shelf for a long time. I'm so happy that I "fixed" the problems. If you have shoes that need broken in, or just need a little bit of help stretching out, I highly recommend these shoe trees. The natural cedar smell is also very pleasant. Sure beats plastic. I think this is well worth the investment. Shipping (both ways) is always free from So give it a try here
