Weekly Shopping Update: 10.5.2013

October 05, 2013

September was not a particularly fruitful month for shopping--there were some cheap scores like the Bowtie Clutch (will review next week) but also heartbreaks like the Burberry Check Lined Wool Cape

Please share in the comments your best finds from September if you have recommendations.

I loved the Lane Striped Shirt on Kelly and tried the 0P at a local store before ordering the 00P online. The style just doesn't work well on me so I dejectedly put this in the return pile.

Shoulder: 14" | Sleeve Length: 22" | Bust: 16" | Total Length: 24"
In that vein, the Silk Blouse was also a return for me. It's not a bad white silk blouse but wasn't special enough to keep.

I love the zigzag pattern that Ann Taylor introduced this season and debated keeping the Zig Zag Stripe Scarf but will try the cowl neck top and pencil skirt before making my decision.

As a continuation of last week's entry, my giant H&M order also yielded these returns. I liked the draped blouse but found the white slightly too cool in tone. It would be a keeper if it were a warmer white. The size 2 fit me well in length.
Draped Blouse | sz 2
A gray skater dress has been slowly creeping up my list of "wants" but this one was slightly "off" in every respect so my search continues.
Jersey Dress | XS
I gravitate to drapey and slightly oversized tops for fall and would've kept this jersey top if I had more holes in my closet to fill. I decided to wait for a better marled top.
Jersey Top | size XS
Retailer: Zappos
Adore this scarf (reminds me of a J. Crew sweater) and may attempt to DIY this.

  1. I just ordered the Banana Republic faux fur trim bow coat before I realized it was final sale. When you remove the collar, is the collar underneath the same as the fit and flare dove grey coat?
