I shopped a bit but didn’t buy much. A filled-to-the-brim closet will do that to you!

Picks: The Boutique 9 Zanny Wedge Boots I wore in several recent posts are only $69.99 (plus 20% off). I am tempted to get a back up pair. My calves are 13″ wide and athletic in shape – and there’s still room in these boots to accommodate additional layers – so if you have thin calves these might not work for you. I am also eying the Pim + Larkin Addison Jacket, the Bardot Bilson Crop Jacket and the MK Military Metal Bar Jacket.

Picks: Sizes are sparse after several rounds of discounts and stackable sales so if you have a “must-buy,” you should get it now. I plan to stock up on cozy basics like the Cambridge Cable Chunky Turtleneck Sweater (which I own in yellow and wear constantly), the Cambridge Cable Crewneck Sweater, the Collection Cashmere Mini-cable Sweater, the Collection Cashmere Crewneck Cardigan, and the Cambridge Cable Turtleneck Sweater.
New styles were added last week so I think this sale still has promise. Sizes are selling out pretty quickly so bookmark pages and refresh in the morning.

I marched into H&M the other day armed with a 30% off coupon fully intend on making a purchase but walked out defeated. I tried on a few items that seem to hold promise but left them behind because I didn’t “need” them.
I found a few utility jackets but they all fell short of my expectations. The material for this jacket was a bit thinner than I am looking for. It also had a row of studs across the right chest pocket which I wasn’t a fan of.

I didn’t like the brown trims/details for the second jacket I tried on and the smallest size available was a size 4 which was slightly big on me. I did like the structure that stiffer material lended this jacket.

I really liked this chiffon blouse with flap chest pockets and rhinestones (tried on both colors) and thought the material was thick and sturdy (a plus for this material, I think). My only hesitation was that several rhinestones fell off when I was trying on the shirts in the fitting room so I reluctantly left them behind. For $39.95 (plus any one of H&M’s numerous coupons) and a little at-home DIY to reinforce the rhinestones, this could have potential.

Picks: Trendy, cheap thrills. I ordered the Coat in Leopard for fun and almost kept it but I can probably find something better for $35.
