Adrien: Shopping My Closet.

YOU GUYS. It's still winter and I'm still on a no-buy which means I'm doing one of my least favorite things: shopping my closet. (I'd basically like to slap whoever came up with that phrase because it's stupid and mostly I just go into my closet to sneer and princess-whine that I have nothing to wear. I do not shop in there.) But anyway. I did indeed work a few old things into a fairly standard outfit and it's cool:


I do love this dumb old dress. It's LOFT and I love the flare fit. Luckily, they're still making dresses with this cut and this one with the fireworks print is SUPER CUTE and I can't have it. Boo. I also like this Loft dress which only has a tiny case of the sleeve-crazy. But really, it's the leopard print that makes me love my dress. Loft has some cute leopard pants but no dresses! For the ultimate, this Kate Spade dress is pretty amazing but I also love this Michael Kors dress for the price. Also, this Gabby Skye dress is only available in a few sizes, but it's really cute.


My cardigan is...problematic. It's cute and it should look it's best all snapped up but it DOES NOT. Trust me on this, I tested it out on the blog back in 2014 (aka 10lbs ago) and it's bad. It's a good color and has interesting beading and all but it's seven years old and I'm tired of it. I think I just want all my cardigans to be gin cardigans? This one at Ann Taylor would do nicely and I also like this one at Banana Republic. And, wait! Duh. I solved my own problem last week with this Eileen Fisher cardigan. Yep. I know. Details:


I'm wearing a favorite old Lulu Frost for J.Crew tassel necklace and it's a solid piece. I'm sad that J.Crew didn't continue that collaboration because Lulu Frost stuff is right up my alley. It is possible to find regular Lulu Frost at decent prices. I love this sparkly charm necklace that's on sale and also this one with a tassel! For something similar but way cheaper, Talbots has a couple of funky tassel necklaces for under $25. 


Bag and boots time. Same old stuff - my grey MBMJ Too Hot To Handle Hobo and my Madewell Lucien boots. Both are favorites! For an update on the boots, I'd say the Madewell Walker Chelsea is probably the most similar. 

That's it for today! I'm going to go sit in my closet and hiss angrily at my clothes instead of shopping them.

    1. I just might. I feel like I've sold half my closet! It's great but eventually I'll have nothing left to wear.

  2. Ugh I bought those Madewell boots, the gold ones from your last post. I think all my shoes are now boots.

    1. Those are soooo pretty and I was sad to have to pack them up and send them back.
