Update Haul!

Hiya everyone! I've picked up a few awesome pieces that I wanted to share with you guys. The three items caught my attention the moment I saw them... and I just simply could not resist!

This first item I actually bought online during "Cyber Monday", which is basically the "Black Friday" sale for online stores. I spotted a pair of DV by Dolce Vita boots awhile back on, yet they were too pricey for me (retailing at about $170). But I still kept it in my shopping cart. However, whenever I'm investing money on an expensive piece, I always do some research to find the cheapest value for that item. With that being said, I found the same boots on for around $100!!! PLUS, I got $30 off during the sale. Meaning that I got boots that were originally $170 for $75, including shipping! I was beyond excited. In order to find the best value for an item, search the name of the item on and click the "Shopping" link. This will give you a list of websites that are selling that item and will also give the price!

I love the taupe colored suede and buckle detailing! However, they do make some minor jingling noise when you walk. These boots run true to size but are a little narrow around the widest part of my foot (I do have very wide feet though). But they stretch a little so they fit well after some wear! Also, they're fairly wide around the calf. Keep in mind that you must be careful with suede! I was unlucky and got ketchup on them within the first week! :( So, I suggest you buy a suede boot cleaning kit and some waterproof spray (they're pretty cheap on Amazon).

This awesome orange jacket/blazer is from H&M. The original price was $49.50, but I was able to get them for $20! If you didn't notice, there is a button missing, but H&M is very good with providing extra buttons on the inside tag. I really like the gold buttons because they're so simple but very classic looking. Also, I was surprised by the quality of this item. The stitching is very well done! And I love the slick and smooth feeling of the inside lining.

Now these 5-pocketed skinnies I saw at TJMaxx and immediately was attracted to them. I am a sucker for bright colors, especially for pants and jackets haha. :) They are a bit pinker in person. These reminded me of the pants Cameron Diaz is wearing the in picture below.
Except hers are by Rag & Bone and costs a whopping $175. Mine were by a company named Vigold and bought for $20. So, I had to get them! Even though these are more of a spring type item, you can still wear pastels and brights during the winter! Don't be afraid to add a pop of color to your outfit. :)

Hope everyone has an amazing Christmas! <3
Until next time~

Enough blogging for one sleepless night. :) Hope you all enjoyed!

Hi guys! Wow... I've been away from blogging for two months now, which is way too long. I'm sorry to anyone, if there is anyone, who still follows my blog! School has been making me so busy, but the semester is almost over! So, hopefully I'll be able to update more during winter break. :^)

I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving! And, I hope you guys got some good shopping done~ I can safely say that I will NOT be doing some shopping for awhile... Black Friday itself was sort of a fail for me... but I was able to snatch some stuff afterwards and on Cyber Monday ^^ I'll try to post my purchases soon!

On another note, it's December!!! yay for my favorite month :D only because it's my birthday soon and Christmas is coming up! In spirit of December, here are two past outfits that I got to take pictures of, nothing fancy though. :(
