Shop with Anhie!

Nordstrom's anniversary sale is probably my favorite time of the year! :) They put out their fall/winter items on sale so you can get your grubby little hands on them for around 30-33% off retail prices before the season even hits. If you have a nordstrom's credit card you get to pre-shop the sale (9 days before the sale hits the public). Here are some of the items I picked up :)You still have to time to preshop. The sale isn't open to the public until the 19th :)

I can't get enough of cognac boots. i'm on the hunt for some cognac booties that won't cut off at a point where my legs look fat! In the mean time, these comfortable supple cognac boots will do :) Got these in a size 5.5! I have a pretty big calf and these still fit them!

I'm always on the hunt for some comfortable flats. These halogen flats are soft and comfortable and plain in the front. The back heel has some studding detail. I settled for the black, but I have to admit the red is cute too! I ordered these in 5.5. They are just a tad snug, but I'm sure they will stretch out with some wear.

I've been on the hunt for a cute quilted leather jacket since last winter. Everything I've tried on has been bulky or has made my arms look like the Michelin tire man. But alas, I came across this leather jacket/blazer. There is no zipper, but honestly I don't really zip my jackets! It's thin so don't expect one of those big bulky jackets. It has quilting on the shoulder and is cut short in the back. I love it! I can picture myself wearing this with leggings and boots and an infinity scarf :) the XSP fits perfectly!


Speaking of quilting, I've developed quite an obsession for it. I am absolutely smitten about this Vince Camuto jacket in Olive. I ordered the XS Petite size and it fits perfectly. Very slimming fit :) After ordering this, I noticed all the petite sizing sold out online, and almost all the regular sizes had sold out too! I wonder if there will be more stock later? But anyways if you can get your hands on it i'd totally recommend it :) It's a very cute jacket!

For the past 2 years Nordies has offered the Clarins sunblock value pack and it is SUCH a great deal. The reg retail for one of these is $40, and you can get 2 for only $57 during the sale! Awesome deal! I often stock up so that I'm all set for the whole year :) This sunblock is amazing. It leaves your skin matte and is the perfect base for foundation. :) my holy grail sunblock!

Other finds:

I'm absolutely smitten with this H&M "wraparound" blouse. I purchased this in a Navy size 2 since they didn't have my size in the stripes. It drapes beautifully and reminds me of a Zara blouse, for half the price :)

I have a thing about brows. My brows are pretty sparse so I've been on a quest to find the best product to fill it in. So far i'm loving the stila waterproof brow color (in medium)! It's very natural looking and doesn't smudge off :)

If you want to get lots of compliments.. you must buy this jcrew necklace. I waited for a good sale and was able to get an additional 10% off! I scored it for $23.50 :)It's a great statement piece! I wore it for the first time the other day and got compliments galore :)

Happy shopping!! :)

The Look 4 Less: Chanel espadrilles

image from tumblr

chanel espadrilles are all the rage this spring/summer. they are sold out almost everywhere! you can find them on ebay for double their original retails. although the original $400ish retail makes this chanel shoe more accessible to most women, i still couldn't shell out that much for an espadrille!

luckily i found these: they are tom-esque and pretty comfy! i am normally a size 5.5/6 and i ordered a 37 based on reviews that they run small! have to say i'm pretty happy with my purchase! At $36 bucks they're definitely not going to break my piggy bank! i'm normally a flip flop gal during the summer but i'm pleasantly happy that i'll be able to add these into the rotation! get em while they're still here! they seem to be going fast!
Soludos Biarritz Colorblock espadrilles (also love these and these)

Late Night Shopping Shenanigans

Staying up late on the computer is NEVER a good thing. I repeat, never. (for your wallet anyways).
My lack of sleep led me to a couple purchases last night!
The weather has been getting warmer, and there's nothing easier for me to throw on lately than a maxi dress.
Being on the shorter side, wearing maxi dresses can become a bit complicated. There's nothing that makes me cringe more than trying a maxi on and seeing it drag across the floor. :P Last year i purchased some maxi dresses from gap.com (seen in this post)
They were a bit pricey- even with the 30% off code. (I think it was 42 bucks a dress?) but the fit was so nice! They ended up shrinking to the perfect length after some washing and drying.
So I thought to myself..there's gotta be a petite version that is more budget friendly right?! I immediately went on old navy.com when i heard there was a dress sale. Low and behold, they have petite maxis going for $25. The more stylish dressier petites will probably opt for the wrap dress, but I just wanted something neutral i could wear probably with a jean jacket,sandals, a cute braid, crossbody bag and some sunnies! :) Also u could definitely dress these up with a bolder necklace :) Here are some of my picks :)

Hope these fit just as well as the gap ones did! :) Anyone have any good experiences with the Old Navy petite dresses?

this month's challenge is to impress your date :)

let's be real. on date nights i rock the north face and sweats to the movie theaters.

for this challenge i opted for a more casual look :) i guess for more zing i could add a scarf or wear a blazer to turn it into a more night time outfit.. but i have this slight obsession with my new denim shirt, so i decided to rock it again. :D i guess this is one of those outfits that you could go from day to night with!

dress: f21 (old) // denim: H&M (recent)
arm charm: anthropologie 'vivi' bracelet // see jewelry
belt: j crew
