Jewel Tone Textures

Have you ever seen a piece of clothing that you know is meant to be yours but you’re kind of a cheapskate and you don’t want to spend full price even though it’s, like, BEAUTIFUL?! Well, you’re seeing two of those pieces RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW in this blog post. This Tory Burch jacket and this Ulla Johnson jumpsuit took up spots one and two on my wishlist last winter. I wanted them so badly that I kept open tabs on my phone and on my laptop so that I could obsessively hit refresh every single day until they went on sale. Let’s just say, I had to wait for a long time (in reality it was like two months, but in blogger world that is eternity) but once they finally went on sale, I screamed with excitement and hit purchase right away.
I actually found this jacket on eBay for a ridiculously good deal. It’s real shearling so let’s just say, this jacket didn’t run cheap. I couldn’t even begin to entertain the idea of spending retail value for it so I scoured eBay and ACTUALLY FOUND IT for a STEAL. I was so excited that I may or may not have teared up a little bit, especially since I knew I would be taking it to NYFW with me. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe and will probably remain at the top of my list for a long long time. Now, this jumpsuit has a similar story but I actually had to wait much longer to make it mine. I did wait for it to go on sale (very patiently, I might add) but by the time it arrived, the weather was starting to get pretty warm and I actually couldn’t even wear it until this fall and winter. Well, it was worth the wait! I freaking love it. It honestly makes me feel like I’m wearing the most luxe pajamas ever and I am totally okay with that.
