I realized a while back that I can’t continue to shop at the pace I had gotten used to and expect to retain or accrue any savings whatsoever, so I’m trying really hard to be good. And for the most part, I have been. But this week tested my will in some meaningful ways, and I think I deserve a goddamned medal for not buying this truly quite perfect Nili Lotan denim blazer.
Or this bright yellow clutch, which I feel would make any outfit significantly cooler.
This phone case tempted me as well, with its excellent red and blue leopard print.
Retailers are starting to show fall clothes now if you can believe it, and mostly I’m not ready to look at any of it, but this Rachel Comey corduroy jacket is just so good.
These shiny bright red mules are a good height for walking, and would look as good with a dress as they would with jeans.
How adorable and comfortable-looking is this striped Teddy?
And finally, here’s something I might very well let myself purchase, as it costs a mere $50: a tee dress from Everlane with a generous side slit that adds a nice dose of sophistication, and the tiniest hint of sexiness.
