Haul: Forever 21 ASOS Hautelook 6pm8:09 PM
My goodness gracious is it really already the end of March? This year has flown by so fast already, I can barely even catch my breath! Work has been intense and in the midst of all the craziness I happened to do a bit of online shopping. *evil laugh*
Because of this influx, I thought it would be a fun break from tutorials and reviews to a haul video of some things I've picked up lately. I don't do hauls very often so forgive me if I'm supa' boring. ;)
You can see the colors a bit better here. The leather Theory blazer is one of my lucky finds from a consignment shop which I found in a size 0 for only $30! I think my eyeballs popped out of my head when I went home and looked up the original price of other Theory leather pieces. I almost cried for joy. XD
Here you can more properly (Barely, since I'm wearing black pants. Oops.) see my new boots from Stuart Weitzman. Black suede, knee-high wedge boots, just exactly like I was searching everywhere for! I'll have to buy an insole since the insides are slippery with socks but I can't wait to wear them out. They aren't at all awkward on my skinny chicken calves. I will say though, that they are 3.5" tall, not 3" so good for shorties like me, not so good for mighty walking days.
others' reviews on the Alterations Needed forum!) This isn't the greatest picture but you can see that the UK petite 4 is slightly roomy on me. Although it's not terrible, I did take to it my tailors to make it cuter and shorter so I will have to do an updated post when I get it back. My tailor said it would be perfect for attending a summer wedding. ^_^
My second ASOS purchase is also in a blush pink color and it covered in ruffles!!!! Ahhhhh.... But actually, the size US 0/UK petite 4 fits quite perfectly around the arm holes and body.
But honestly, for most days I'll definitely be layering this baby. I foresee this outfit with a blazer popped on top for a cute work look. :)
I've been search everywhere, especially in the last 4 years but even before then, for the perfect dark-wash, bootcut jeans and came up time and time again empty handed. I was so excited when I bought these from Hautelook because obviously, they fit me perfectly. LOL!
Okay, so they need a bit of a hem. *cough* A LOT of a hem. Designer denim always seems to be 2 feet too long! Seriously, is there someone out there with my hip measurement and legs this long? Really? But actually, I am in love with the "Dark Night" wash and the rest fits quite better than nearly everything I've tried. Winning.
Another of my perfect dark denim jeans requirements is that they have no obnoxious back pocket detailing. Frankie Bs tend to often go over the top with their pocket details so I'm glad this is so plain. This also shows the slight bagginess which was eliminated with a wash and the waist being taken in as well.
Also, I flat-ironed my hair which I haven't done in at least a year. I like it straight with the ombre dye!
Last but not least, here's an image showing my lone fail out of my hauls. I had high hopes for this Muubaa leather jacket from Hautelook since it's a UK size 4, but it's pretty ginorm. This is me practicing my bat wing flap. Definitely will have to be a return which is sad because it's nice and weighty and the leather's soft.
