.. shopping hauls, the story of my life ..

I won't deny having a slight buying problem, but it just makes me so happy. There are too many beautiful things in this world, and when I see them, I want! I do try to keep things under control, but there are so many days in the year, and so many opportunities to take out that wallet and acquire. I love a good deal, too, so when I find out about a spectacular sale, I just can't resist.

Last week, I attended the Gilt Warehouse Sale in Los Angeles, and although slightly disappointed that the deals weren't as good as I had hoped, I still walked away with some nice items. I never have a problem finding something worth purchasing. If you don't know about Gilt, it's a website that offers daily sales on designer clothes, shoes, accessories, and home goods. The warehouse sale was the same kind of thing, but with a lot of their stock on display, and some items were reduced further from the listed price online (although many items were not further discounted).

In addition to the Gilt items, I had a little shop around at several secondhand and consignment shops, Nordstrom, Asos, and more, I'm sure.

Take a look!

 Candela Maxi Dress // Gilt Warehouse sale // Beautiful crocheted back

 Maiden Lane Almond Toe Patent Leather Nude Heels // Gilt Warehouse Sale // A nice basic

 Rebecca Minkoff Monogrammed Clutches/Make-up Bags // Gilt Warehouse Sale // Monogrammed with random letters that don't work for my first or last name, but who cares.

 Hugo Boss Men's Boots (for my dad) // Gilt Warehouse Sale // Dad has style

 Helmut Lang Strappy Black Leather Sandals // Secondhand/Consignment Shop // Super sexy, practically new, amazing deal!

 Costume National Lucite Green Heels // Secondhand/Consignment Shop // Also like-new, with a fun detail

Fila Red and Black Leather High-top Sneakers // Secondhand Shop // A very unlikely choice, as I'm rarely into the "sporty" look, but these were adorable, and never worn.

 Studded Leather Jacket // Asos // Can't ever have enough leather jackets, and this one was 75% off!

Coated Metallic Jeans, Leather Pants, and Circle Scarf (gift, but I'm wearing it tons) // Asos (except for the scarf, which is Anthropologie // I needed a little excitement with my trousers

Western-inspired Ankle Boots // Nine West // I haven't purchased a Nine West shoe in a long time, but checked out their website after I saw the Pamela Love x Nine West Boots. These are not from the collaboration, but still amazing.

Tibi Gold Foil Dress with Blue Accents // Nordstrom // Wore this out to a holiday party

  1. OH MAH GAWD! Though all of your goodies were gorgeous, I'm loving the steals from the secondhand shops! They are droolworthy. As is your photography. I love how you accessorized your mannequin (WOULD LOVE THAT, TOO!) with that fab crochet dress with that killer necklace. And the lighting with those lucite heels really makes the green pop. A fantastic blog from a girl who has fantastic taste who is...well, for lack of a better word, fantastic! Can't wait for the next post. XXXXX
