My February Purchases

March 11, 2018




So, I'm supposed to only bring in one new item per month, which so far is proving to be a lot harder than it sounds. February started off with my birthday and the first thing I bought was a new Coach bag I was searching for a few months. 

Coach 1941 Rexy Dylan Bag

Then I fell in love with the heathered auburn colored Vinyasa and purchased that. My sister also gave me a Lululemon gift card for my birthday so I ended up buying a few more things throughout the month.


And of course Sherlock passed away and I fell into sadness and grief and needed some retail therapy. I found an etsy shop that made custom rings and ordered one for each of my fur babies. My ring size is 3.5 and only a few shops could make them that small. They are totally affordable and only cost $21 per ring. It took about a week and a half for them to make. I went with rose gold and font 31 in case anyone was curious. I really love how they turned out and I wear them almost everyday.  


When I saw this vintage grape Define Jacket pop up on WMTM I pulled the trigger. I still haven't worn it yet, which means I probably could have passed, but I do think it is a really nice shade of purple.


The one thing I really do need are more sports bras. So I ordered a couple more Free To Be Wild Bras in dark mystic and quicksand. I favorite of the two is definitely quicksand. I just love that color so much. 


I was this close to keeping the so merlot Align Crop but in the end I decided to return them because after sitting on them for a week I wasn't super excited about them and I would have to get them hemmed. I do love the color but I also didn't need another pair of Align Crops. I also felt it would be hard to wear with many colors. 


Balenciaga City Dolma Green 2005

Last but not least, I'm super addicted to old Balenciaga bags. I love the colors and the old chèvre leathers. This one is from 2005 and the color is dolma. It's definitely used and the color has slightly faded in some areas but I think it gives it character and depth. They just do not make Balenciaga bags like this anymore. I've been stalking ebay and Fashionphile for old ones mainly from 2003-2005. The good thing is they're much cheaper now. I scored this one for $400. I don't mind them used as long as the handles are not black and the corners are not super worn through. There's something nice about a vintage bag. 

I'm very much into handbags and could really talk about them all day long. I don't want to hijack this post and turn it into a handbag session but if there's anyone who wants to know more about Balenciaga bags, leave me a comment. I've been obsessing about them since 2005.

I also participated in Agentathletica's challenge to find 28 items to get rid of in 28 days. I'm at least happy to report that I found over 28 items that I either donated to goodwill or put into a sell pile. So while I wasn't at all successful in my one item per month purchase, I at least succeeded in the second challenge. 

Hope you all had a great weekend! I have some happy news to share with you guys, coming up soon. =)

  1. The rings are beautiful, and such a lovely way to remember Sherlock. I think a little retail therapy is more than justified after such a sad loss. Can't wait to hear your happy news!

  2. Besides Balenciaga, what are your other favorite designer bags? I've never bought one but considering spending a bit more than usual on a new bag for spring/summer...

    1. In my current bag collection, I've got LV, Gucci, Chanel, and Givenchy. I've pretty much owned every designer at some point. Fendi, Dior, Chloe. Those have been sold. It took me a long time to figure out which bags work for me. Thus all the selling that took place. Favorite after Balenciaga is probably my Chanel boy and then my Gucci marmont bag. If I hit the lotto I would one day like to try Hermes and see what that's all about, but I don't think that will happen anytime soon! I try really hard not to spend retail price on bags though. The prices these days are crazy!

    2. The Chanel Boy bag is a classic. That one is so beautiful. The price, though.. omg! I will have to admire from afar lol.

    3. I kinda regret buying the Chanel Boy at retail price. Looking back I would have been fine buying it second hand. But, I've had it for a while now... so I guess it's fine!

    4. You've probably gotten your moneys worth if you've had for awhile! I recently got a Coach bag. I love it. I know that's not really designer but the price is easier to swallow.

    6. Oh, awesome! :) :) I look forward to reading it! I just got a pink one but I really love the ivy color of their Turnlock tote. It's gorgeous. I might save my pennies for that one.

    7. Right now they're having their PCE event. I ended up buying a cute wristlet and bag charm. It should be here today. I think the event ends on the 19th? Could probably get 20% off the Turnlock tote.
