I love getting packages in the mail, even when I know the contents. I received my F21 items and the MaddenGirl shoes from DSW today. Yay! I was so excited, I just had to show you, mes lovies. So I played a little dress-up when I got home from work today. I'll provide some reviews, too. First up is the Rose Print Skirt from the new Tres Paris Twist Line (out of stock online).
I bought this before it was actually a part of the collection-- seems like they accidentally released this, then took it off the site, then re-released it. Whatever-- I got it, that's all I care about. And I'm in love. Again, bought a Medium instead of Small so I could wear it a little lower, and it worked marvelously. The colors are super pretty, and I can't wait to pair this with some patterned tights. Me likey.
I paired the shoes with it, too, as you can see. Here's a close up of those:
These fit well and look so much better than their $40 pricetag (aaaand I scored 'em for $30!!). The purple is more like a burgandy, but no matter. It's hard to tell, but there's also an architectural-type platform... just adorable. One word: having long toes makes 'em feel a little scrunched, but no pain no gain, right?
And of course, the sequined jacket (also sold out online):
This blazer is great to dress up a casual outfit, and I'm sure would look similarly fab-oo with an LBD. I shouldn't be expecting amazing quality, but I did hope it would be a little more substantial, a little more structured in the shoulders. It's rather thin and unstructured, though. I'm still happy and think it's a great piece for $30ish.
Overall, my buys were a success. Chalk it up to another successful Black Friday/Cyber Monday. :)
