Weekly Shopping Update: Recent Purchases

At the request of reader C, who apparently used to rely on me to enable her shopping habit, here are some purchases that have worked out. Not all are recent but I have plans to blog about them eventually (we shall see just how eventual).

Kate Spade New York 2 Park Avenue Fabric Lux Small Beau Satchel (Possibly an extra 30% off with code EXTRA30; discount is account-specific.)
Forever 21 Embroidered Espadrilles (Fit true to size–order a size up if between sizes–and are relatively comfortable.)
Forever 21 Structured Envelope Crossbody (I picked this up in all three colors; girlfriends who got them as gifts were pleased. I also own the bag in blue.)
Forever 21 Faux Leather Crisscross-Strap Sandals
(I own a similar pair that’s 10x as expensive and they are worn to shreds; these are affordable, look expensive but do rub a bit at the heel.)
Forever 21 Embroidered Crochet Pencil Skirt (Not the most petite-friendly of skirts but I haven’t had luck finding a heavy crochet skirt in navy so will be spending money to alter it; good quality for the store.)
Forever 21 Anchor Wrist Cuff

Now, some of you might be thinking: Elle, really, Forever 21 again? I
thought we’ve been down this road before. And all I have to say for
myself is that I have been exceedingly lucky there of late and the gift
card I was bequeathed–former owner kicked her fast fashion habit–still has a positive balance on it.

J. Crew Bow-shoulder Dress in Super 120s Wool
(Popbacks are a daily occurrence; check secondary markets if you don’t like that game.)
(In person, pale chartreuse is duller than pictured with maybe a touch more green in its composition. The bow is also an abstract bow, not a gift bow.)
Kate Spade New York Suede Larisa Pumps
(picked up during Saks’s consolidation sale; possibly still in stores.)

For those who can’t find the Larisa Pumps in stores, I also tried the Licorice Jean Pumps (also here) earlier this year and they are fairly similar (though the Licorice will probably require a lengthy break in period).

Happy shopping!

Hi, I am Elle!
