recent purchases

Since I leave for work and return home essentially in the dark, I finally got a chance this morning to take some photos of stuff I bought recently (unfortunately it was a crappy day out today so the photos didn't turn out that great). First up are my new boots and pumps - the only things I splurged on from Black Friday sales. Here are some pics of the Zadig & Voltaire motorcycle boots from Solestruck (half price!) that I wore twice this week already (these are my favourite pair of boots of ALL TIME).

Here are the McQ Alexander McQueen pumps that dropped to half price on SSENSE. These are pretty high (4.5") but really only 3" because of the 1.5" platform. They look black in the photos because of the crappy lighting but they're a deep purple/oxblood (not quite as bright as on SSENSE's website).

As I mentioned yesterday, I picked up a few things at the mall. First I stopped in at Aldo. I always love their handbag selection and scored a couple. I needed something to replace the shitty bag I keep at work  to use when I leave the office since I go to and from work with a big sporty backpack. This nylon/pleather black bag was on sale for $19 (the girl told me it's a knock-off of a Longchamp bag).

I got all excited when I found this FAB burgundy bag since it's my new favourite colour. It was only $50 (and kind of See By Chloe looking). P.S. They have a really cool Phillip Lim Pashli knock-off that I can't find on their website.

At American Eagle I found the most amazing, softest hoodie ever. I don't even really like hoodies because the bulkiness of the hood drives me mental when putting on a jacket, but this was SO worth it. It was on sale for $29. They have it in 9 colours says the website.

i don't even know who carries them - but i think Longchamp is up there with Balenciaga and co. So $$$$$

LOVE the burgundy bag! And that hoodie looks sooo comfortable, might have to invest in one myself.
As for the Longchamp, the "Pliage" are around $145. They come in different sizes, so I think that's for the largest.But I've been disappointed by their colors lately, I bought a bright turquoise one a few years ago (for about $30), but it's starting to show signs of tear :(

AH - those do look awfully similar to that Pilage one. Great simple bag.
I highly advise on getting that hoodie. FAB. And the burgundy bag is my new everyday fav.
