yay shopping post!
i definitely could have shopped more, but since i was spending a lot of money that wasn’t my own (that i’ll eventually pay back) and the lack of luggage space, i really didn’t go all out…
12 pack sharpie is an impulse buy at Staples one day that I was feeling extra bad about myself x_x I
I got a new eyeliner, Stila all day lasting something, though that’s all the make up that I bought, kind of wished that I bought more.
Two silver plated skulls and tote bag from this store called Evolution in Soho, really cool store!
I got the small size and the large size…. the chain is my own.
Gold clog sandals from Loeffler Randall, that I got at their sample sale..!!! and Sam Edelman sandals from Bloomingdales~~ thanks for giving me 10% because I’m from out of town.
APC winter jacket at the APC warehouse sale. I think I really don’t know that much about APC as a brand. Because this is actually the only thing that I really wanted from the warehouse sale at least. There was so much madras stuff which I didn’t really like. I like their sweaters and outerwear a LOT but their cute tiny floral graphic shirts were not really it for me. But they had excellent guys selection…
Then I spend a gazillion hours at Uniqlo.
This is the Uniqlo x Undercover (UU) easy jacket for Men, but i love it, their women’s collection was very house wife… ..very very very house wife.
the UU hoodie….. with two large pockets, also for guys, meh.
Love it so much that I got two more (also super cheap…because it was on sale)
More haul from Uniqlo. I had a jeans dilemma there. I was determined to buy a new pair of black skinny jeans. I hit up rag & bone and the usual places. But lately I am just not that confident in myself as to put down at least $200 for a pair of jeans anymore. Probably because i’m currently and STILL unemployed. I ended up getting a pair of shiny rag & bone at barneys becauseeee it’s shiny (looks like leather) and it was only about $150… and it ended up collecting lint like crazy, that’s my biggest fear with black jeans. So I ended up returning them but got these instead (on the very last day), the uniqlo legging pants, these actually look like real pants with real pockets. Sometimes when the pant is too tight they just sew the pockets shut..but these are REAL pockets! and such a good price… the fit is great too.
this cute oversized sweater (or is it b/c it’s XL?) that I got at the GANT warehouse sale. I don’t even know what GANT is, but I can’t just walk by a sample sale and not go in…. anyways i love it, simple but unique
Shopping in New York is amazing! There is no sales tax for items under $110. There are so many great brands from all over the world and the best part, the SAMPLE SALES! There are so many great ones coming up that i’ll be missing which makes me sad which I won’t think about at all…
