As always, I’ve been shopping a little bit, and I wanted to share a few of what I think are some of the best things I’ve bought recently. I am so in love with these few things I’m about to share, and I’m hoping that if I look back on this haul these pieces will do better than the ones in my last new in post. As a little side note, I really enjoyed doing the revisiting my last new in post, so I might end up doing another one of those after a little while to follow up on this one too.
If you know me, you know I wear a lot of dresses through the warmer weather, and while we’re really not out of winter yet, I found 2 dresses I fell absolutely in love with and because they were both on sale I thought I’d just get them and pray the weather gets nicer so I can wear them soon. The first one I got was this red spotted one from Bec & Bridge. Bec & Bridge is one of those brands that just has pieces it’s hard not to lust over, however a lot of their pieces are definitely on the pricey side. This one I got on sale for a little less than half price which made it a lot more affordable. The quality feels really nice, it’s 100% silk which feels amazing but I haven’t washed it yet so I can’t comment on how it washes. Tea dresses like this are all over the place, and I think the details on this one just make it so flattering. The ruching detail on the bust really shows off a bit of cleavage, and I love how it’s followed through onto the sleeves. I think this will be one of my more special dresses, and because of that I’m sure I won’t wear it constantly, but I know when I do I’m gonna feel amazing.
The second dress I got is another tea dress style piece from Free People. This I got on sale from General Pants and it was an absolute bargain. This dress I’m sure I’ll end up wearing quite a bit more than the Bec & Bridge one, mainly because of the fabric and the fact this one is a combination of viscose and rayon so it’s much easier to wash and be better for when it’s really hot. The detail on this dress too are so delicate and beautiful. I always love a little button up front, and I think it looks so cute when you leave a few undone. The little lace up detailing right under the bust really cinches you in at the waist and accentuates your chest, which is obviously super flattering. I can just see myself throwing this on with docs or maybe my stan smiths and I think it’ll look so good.
Lastly, this insane top from Dyspnea (still don’t know how to say that), and some seriously cool jeans from ASOS. This top I’ve been looking at for a while and I was kind of on the fence about which colour to get, but in the end I think this black shade was the best choice. I absolutely love the bright red one, but I thought that I would get more wear out of this colour, and if I do I’m definitely tempted to add another one to my wardrobe. Sizing wise these do come up pretty small, I’m usually a size 8-10 or a small, and I ended up getting this in a medium and it’s tight, but it really hugs and accentuates all the right places.
I’ve been seeing this style of jean that zips all the way through from front to back on a few different people, two of my favourites to rock it being Devon Carlson (@devonleecarlson) and Reese Blutstein (@double3xposure), and I really wanted some for myself. I have to start by saying these are not comfortable jeans, but god do I love the way they look. Because they’re ASOS’ own brand of denim I find they run a bit small so I went for a waist 28 like I normally do with this brand, and they’re still a tight fit. The denim feels really good and thick, and they don’t have much stretch to them. I can definitely say I won’t be wearing these for comfort, but I’m really happy to have them.
