Instant Gratification



skirt :: h&m (similar)
shoes :: zara basic slingback (similar)

Thanks for all the comments on my last post! Consensus seems to be that we all love finding good looks for less - the wallet's certainly not complaining. 

Anyways while I was in NY during NYFW I had the opportunity to hear Lauren Conrad speak to her experiences and brands. She's surprisingly a very down-to-earth real girl, nothing like MTV portrayed her to be (well, that or she grew up). 

Prior to this event I had never looked into LC Lauren Conrad or Paper Crown because there were simply too many other brands topping my 'To Do' list. However post-event is a different story. I knew that the moment I got back to cali-forn-I-A I would have to hop into my one passenger subway and cruise the streets until I hit destination, aka the closest Kohl's. I had to check out LC Lauren Conrad and there would be no stopping me until I did. 

[Tangent: this NY excursion made me appreciate CA for what it's worth. I love NY and all but I'm beyond saving when it comes to sun, instant {travel} gratification, and the luxury of not having to lug the consequences of shopping a mile to the subway station or in the alternative, pay $20 for a cab ride. I am forever a California girl.]

And guess what, that's just what I did. And it was a good thing too because I hustled the last xs in this blue floral chiffon blouse, California style.

  14. Love that blouse and skirt! Hmmm, I often joke to my husband that I am a "bag lady" here in SF hauling all of my purchases around and trying to get on the bus with them. NYC is on another level, though, so I guess I'll take what I can get! I'm still trying to figure out how to get my new boots home from work without carrying the huge box on the bus. Maybe I'll just wear them home ;)

  21. You look beautiful as always :)
    And I'm glad to hear you go thrifting sometimes!! I completely understand about it getting overwhelming though; often times I like to just look through one type of clothing (dresses or blouses or pants, etc) for one trip so that I don't feel quite so crazy going through the whole store... it's much more manageable that way!

  28. Anyone talking about fashion who got famous through a reality show would automatically make me roll my eyes so I'm glad to hear Lauren Conrad wasn't like her TV persona. Also glad you had a good time at NYFW.
