Lately my shopping mantra has been "quality over quantity." Granted, this isn't a groundbreaking idea, but for me it is a new way of thinking. As a pro-bargain hunter, I've been known to buy something that I like a decent amount, if I can get it for a killer deal. Don't get me wrong, I love my wardrobe, but it's left me with an overcrowded closet. Lately I've been working on only acquiring pieces that I either love or are vintage treasures. The result so far has been money saved, an organized closet, and some wardrobe staples that I'm very excited to wear.
My first stop was American Apparel. This is definitely a place I have always just window shopped in, so I was excited to finally pick some things up.
New in: The Disco Pant, a street style favorite. The sheen, the cut, what's not to love? I even remember my best friend and I popping in to just try these on so we could see how they feel. Now that I own them, I am sooo hooked. Also a plus, I think they will keep me warm while abroad!
Next up: The Easy Jean. Another piece that has been raved about by women everywhere. I didn't think a pair of jeans could be that much better than any I had worn before, but boy was I wrong. The 2% elastane gives these the perfect amount of stretch. They are both comfortable and fitted, and will be a good change of pace from my typical black denim.
I also paid a visit to Zara online. (The Arizona location is opening soon!) I saw this bag $60 less than the original price, and fell in love with the real leather black and white minimalism. I thought it would be a good bag to throw over my shoulder for a day of class, and could hold my books + laptop while riding my bike to class. However, I was a little disappointed to open the package and realize it didn't have much structure to it. If you're looking for a slouchy tote, I definitely recommend this baby, but it just wasn't the perfect choice for me. I'll have to keep my eye out for another black + white carry-all!
That's the extent of my purchases to date, but I'll keep you updated with new finds. Thanks for reading! x. Paige
