The above photos are what I like to call my "casual wear". I throw on some colored jeans (these are lilac, but you can't quite tell from the pictures) and a white tee of some sort. I always love the look of scarves, even in the summer. I wore some little Chanel loafers and threw my hair up in a messy side pony tail. The sunglasses are a black pair of Celine Audrey's that a friend in Seattle tracked down for me. The earrings are Clash Boutique via FB (tell them PIPM sent you).
I really hate to toot my own horn (toot toot), but I have excellent bargain hunting skills. I was stalking some sale items at a local store here and was able to wait until Last Call sale. I found J.Brands for $39.99 (practically unheard of) and I got DvF, Derek Lam, and Phillip Lim dresses for $49.99 each. These were all current season pieces.
Okay, so what if the DvF dress is totally not my size, I plan on getting it altered to fit. For $49.99, why not?
The Derek Lam dress is more for fall, but I plan on wearing it with black tights and boots.
I was like a kid on Christmas morning with this sale at Joseph. I was frantically texting my friend here and trying to put stuff on hold for her.
Maybe my true calling is to be a personal bargain shopper? I just absolutely love the hunt and thrill of finding the sales!
