Nine in the afternoon

Just a quick haul past from the past month or so! I mentioned in my last post that I've been budgeting myself lately, which means keeping track of every penny that I spend (literally!). Despite having strict limitations on my finances, that doesn't mean that I don't have anything left to spoil myself with. I firmly believe in rewarding yourself for some haaaaard work.

Calvin Klein

I've been on the lookout for the perfect pair of trousers... and I've found them! This was purchased at the Fashion Outlet in New York. It's the 'body fit' so they're extremely form fitting with some good stretch in them. Perfect gray colour, and the best part is that they're not too 'skinny' fit at the bottom. There are also fake (sewn) pockets so that your hips will appear slimmer.


These may look like a pair of ordinary black slacks, but the stitching on the pant leg actually gives them a motocross look. A great way to try out the style without going all out. I love that they're high-waisted, but the material feels like it'll stretch out and STAY stretched out, so I got a size smaller than I normally do.


The ultimate crop top, UGH I LOVE THIS. I've already worn it a few times.. It's a snow leopard on the front. It's the ultimate fit: loose, flowy, and cropped to just below the belly button when your arms are by your side.


I know, I know.. A maxi dress in this current weather?! Well in my defense, it was early August when I bought this.. I love the taupey colour and the hardware detail. At least I'll be ready for next summer!


Random notebook.. I actually like to carry one around with me. I used to use this old spiral bound blue notebook that actually has a calendar from 1998-1999 in it, LOL. Time to upgrade.. It's an ecofriendly notebook apparently, hence the cute phrase on the front.


American Apparel

I also actually bought this bra in black, but that's in the wash.. Honestly, these are SOOO comfortable, I want one for every day of the week! They're great bras for those scoop-back tops/dresses, or even oversized tank tops. It's nice to have a bit of the pattern peek through. If you were interested in purchasing the above bra or one similar, word of advice to the more chesty girls: they offer very little support. The crossback bras are actually better in that area.



Until next time, :).
