I apologise for being away from the blog for so long! But what with moving, and finally getting to see my boyfriend after 2.5 months…things have been pretty crazy!
But things are never too crazy for some online shopping! 🙂 So long ago, I got an email from Paypal a long time ago, asking me to sign up for Rue La La…and the best part was that I got a $20 credit just for signing up through that email.
So a quick background on Rue La La….it’s another designers-for-less website…along the lines of Gilt, Beyond the Rack, Hautelook, etc. But what also sets them apart, is that they not only have sales for clothing, home accessories, etc. but also for special deals in your city and around the world….sort of like Groupon. They often have great sales on fabulous getaway locations around the world!! If I only had the money…:) Also, every Sunday night is the Rue La La Styleathon with great sales starting at 8pm! Which I really appreciate since most of us are at work during regular 11am sales.
So I finally used my $20 credit to purchase a military green and yellow digital watch by Puma. Here it is:

When I went back from the internship I also found my very first Beyond the Rack order sitting. I had ordered a satchel since they were so hot this spring, and this one fits my Macbook bro and it was just love at first sight. It was my very first experience with Beyond the Rack and I will discuss some of the pros and cons later. Here’s the Buckles and Pockets satchel in Brown by Elise Hope:
I am in love with a recent purchase from a Hautelook Matix sale. Now I admit I had no clue this brand even existed… but a lot of the time Hautelook-type websites introduce me to new brands. I saw the dress on sale and sat patiently hitting refresh for the correct size (S, for me) to become available. When I received the dress I figured this was not going to hug any curves on my body, hehe. So my belt came to the rescue. I used a wide black belt to cinch it in at the waist and here are the results:

I received my first Sole Society purchase – Clines yesterday and have not taken them off ever since (okay well, that’s a bit of an overstatement, but you get what I mean!). I had already mentioned that I was fairly impressed by their shoe collection previously. I walked around the house just to get a feel for these babies and then wore them out to dinner with my significant other. These are the most comfortable high heels I have stepped into in a while. I am also digging the gold detailing. Today I am pairing it with a dress… but I think it will go well with pants too! They are just really sophisticated and sexy – a combination rarely found. I mean I have owned a LOT of strappy sandals that scream sexy. But this one screams sexy and cute and demure. I could see this working with semi-casual office attire as well!
