Why is it that I can't stay away?? I am a loser with no will power, that's why, Ladies. That's why I have gone off the deep end with a mega-order, not even doing my usual panic thing before I hit the Check Out button. Y'all know how I am; I usually weigh the pro's and con's of this skirt versus that top. But not this time. I blame it on the stress of moving back to the US. There. At least there's an excuse --- a pretty good one, if I must admit!
Well, without further adieu, please meet the newest fabulosities that shall be calling my tiny Japanese closet home (well, for now anyway).
The Curator Pant.
Let me tell you about the hoops and shoots I have had to go through to get my greasy little paws on these very Not Your Average J.Crew pair of pants. I have been secretly pining for these pants. Away from the blog. Secret = Not on the Blog. I have been wondering if they were too fashion-forward for little 'ole me, who tends to be more of a preppy girl. But at some point, I don't know when, I decided I liked them. And that's when I found out that they're basically sold out on the site (available in 00, which perhaps I could get my ankle in, but that's about it). & so I called my trusty PS, who found them quickly, only to email me back with the disappointing news that the store that had them did not hold them for me. **Eye Rolls** She was quick to email me back and say she found them again and would I like them, to which my response was all, 'Hellz Yeah!' I don't know when I turned all crazy for harem pants. But I like these. I am planning all sorts of outfits around them and so I need them to get here ASAP so I can see what all the hullaballoo is about. Will definitely report back once they arrive.
The Neopolitan Pencil Skirt.
I confessed my love for this skirt upon its first release. But then my girl at Moda bought the Neopolitan Lady Jacket and I fully fell in love with the jacquard fabric. Absolutely gorgeous. Yesterday there was only my size left, so I took it as a sign and put it in the cart.
The Stretch Flannel Banquette Dress.
I've been staring at this dress for a while. It has the most perfect little cap sleeves and who doesn't need a fabilis little black dress for work? Yes, it was meant to be mine. I've rationalized that my new peeps at my new job will like me better and faster if I wear this to work vice any and all of the other 2,567,986,569,898 black work dresses that I have in my closet. Ladies, that's what I call logic.
The Merino Popover Tunic.
Finally, another piece that is a little too-cool-for-school but that I find so fabilis for everyday. Talk about wearability! This is one of those basics that will stand the test of time! Well, it better for $78 FP.
Anyone buy anything this weekend? Am I the only one that fell off the wagon?
