Tops

Yikes! It’s early July and I’ve already spent too much money. Went shopping yesterday and got the following:

 

Mini Willis in British Tan

A new Coach purse: the Mini Willis in British Tan. I’ve been waiting for my local Coach to carry this purse in this specific colour since they first brought out the Willis bags a few months ago. Up until now, it’s been mostly the pastel colours which makes sense for Spring/Summer. But I love the tan colour which matches nicely with some of my tan shoes. The purse is small – really small. I wore it out yesterday to meet up with some friends. I could fit my wallet snugly inside with just enough room for a lipstick. My phone had to go in the outside back pocket. (I later decided to just take out my credit card, debit card & ID and put it into the inside pocket. That way, I could also bring my eyes and sunglasses too. I may need to buy a tiny wallet later for this.

 

Bailey 44 You’re The Top Dress

I saw this in the store window of the Mens Club store and knew immediately I had to have it. I love striped dresses but usually the strips aren’t flattering. However, this Bailey 44 dress has the stripes going in a crisscross pattern which makes my waist look tiny. And I also appreciate that it’s not a bandage style dress. Love the styling and can’t wait to wear this somewhere to show off.

 

Plenty blouse also available in white & pewter

Also, this black silk blouse by Plenty. It’s got a bit of a peplum which I’m not 100% sure I’m into yet, but hey! What better time to try out a trend than when it’s on sale? I originally wanted this in white but it sold out. Damn all you tiny Asian girls out there who buy out my size!

I spent way too much money this weekend. To hide my guilt and shame, I’ve decided against telling you what the prices are. Instead, here’s what I bought:

1) Talula Shrunken Exeter Blazer in black from Aritzia

Talula Shrunk Exeter Blazer

I know, everyone and their momma has one of these. But I don’t have a single blazer in my closet and I figured this is the easiest way to look put together without actually being so. Shrunken blazer because at 5’2″, my short stubby legs hated the regular one.

2) Talula Silk Tank in both Whitecap Grey and Cockatoo from Aritzia

Talula Silk Tank Top

in Whitecap Grey

Just a couple basic tanks, one in a neutral and one in a kicky mint green.

3) Monk & Lou Blazer in cream from Plenty

Monk & Lou Blazer

Something to dress up my summer wardrobe as well as, again, fake that whole “put together” look. I’m not 100% sure about this one and may end up returning it later on this week.

4) Vero Moda Blake 2/4 tank in Shiny Cobalt from Plenty

Vero Moda Blake 2/4

in Shiny Cobalt (what's so shiny about it?)

It was the colour that attracted me to this. Couldn’t help it. Lately I’ve really been into this bright blue colour lately. (But for some reason, that monologue that Miranda Priestly spouts off keeps running through my head.) I’m also on the fence about this purchase.

5) Big Blue Jessica Ankle Thin Jeggings from Plenty

Big Blue Jessica

in black rather than blue

I know, I know. The dreaded J word: jegging. But they’re so soft and comfortable and don’t look like denim. I’m hoping to be able to wear them to the work with some cute heels. Of course, on me, they’re just regular length jeggings and not ankle length.

That’s it! Of course, it doesn’t look like a lot,… until I see my Visa bill next month.
