Singin’ The Blues

BLOUSE, SKIRT: Self-Portrait via Nordstrom/HEELS: similar/BAG: more options here/LIP COLOR: “Heat Wave” by NARS

Today I feel like singin’ the blues. Because I love this look!

I’m also pretty pumped to start shopping again! This time for me. And this time, at Nordstrom. With so many designer goodies at your fingertips, it’ll be easy to spend my gift cards all at one place. Cha-ching!

But before I go into a rant about how excited I am to start shopping, let’s chat about today’s look.

Consignment Secrets

BLOUSE, PANTS, SANDALS: (c/o) Shopbop/BAG: (c/o) SnobSwap/EARRINGS: (c/o) Mercedes Salazar (similar here)/SUNNIES: Ray-Ban

Growing up, I didn’t have a ton of resources so I would get creative and turn to consignment stores to buy designer. Every now and then, I would find gems. Other times, not so much but it was the thrill of the hunt that kept me going back for more. #ConfessionsOfAShopaholic

As I grew older and my taste matured (slash my bank account grew bigger because #adult), my consignment store hunts morphed from meh to awesome. Case in point: the time I found rare Ferragamo loafers, my first pair of Chanel earrings (you can never have too much Chanel!), my favorite Hermes twilly, my first Gucci top handle bag and let’s not forget the Louis Vuitton tote (real, with tags) that was tossed out because someone was tired of it and like a famished tiger in the jungle, I pounced on in like one second.

Self-Portrait Love

DRESS, HEELS (similar here), CLUTCH (similar here and here): Nordstrom

Ah, December 1st. The start of the best month of the year. The air is crisp. The town is bustling with new faces from all over. And my bank account is dwindling…

… from buying gifts.

Yeah right.

Let’s be real. Every. Single. Time. I visit Nordstrom, I find something cute, like this Self-Portrait dress, and buy it without hesitation. Besides, ‘tis the season for Art Basel and holiday parities so dresses like this one come in handy. Trust me…

Haaapppppppy Cyber Monday! Looking for a list of sales? Click here.

Ok, so last week I talked about investment pieces and why I splurge on items like this blazer. (Click here to read it.) I also promised to re-style it. Why? Because I know once you see this blazer again, buy it, you’ll love it forever, just as I do because it’s so versatile…

WEARING -> DRESS, HEELS, BAG (similar), SUNNIES (similar), WATCH, EARRINGS: Nordstrom

I’m BACK! Back in beautiful, beautiful Florida. I’ve been in Dallas the past four days attending a blogger conference called #rStheCon. From brand meetings to classes on ways I can grow + expand my blog to cocktail parties and late night dinners with (new and old) friends, it’s been a whirlwind. I’m wiped out. So much in fact, that I’ve completely lost my voice. Not sure if it’s from allergies or exhaustion? Or the copious amounts of champagne all weekend? Either way, I need some serious rest.

Happy December 1st everyone! So much has happened in the past couple weeks – from moving to a new apartment to my trip to NYC (more on that soon!) to starting a new job this week (which I’m beyond excited for!) – it’s been a very very busy time for me!

But enough about that…
