Favorite Fashion Finds
I saw a similar series to this one on WhoWhatWear.com and thought it was amazing! There are SO many cool pieces I spot each week because I spend a ridiculous amount of time shopping. It’s funny when I think back. I remember saying when I was 25, “If only someone would pay me to shop.” Fast forward 20 years and that IS my business! Isn’t it amazing how some of the goals you put things out there… and work hard to achieve…actually come to fruition? Dreams really do come true.
I spend an average of around 4 hours, online shopping each week. Maybe more. I share some of those finds with you, but not all of those finds as I often don’t purchase these pieces. They simply might be too costly or, not something that makes sense for my lifestyle. However, they might make sense for yours!! I’m hoping that they will anyway because someone needs to wear these fabulous finds!! Maybe your life is more glam than mine!
I was also browsing Instagram this week and noticing some of my favorite YouTubers and bloggers going to Paris Fashion Week. After 5+ years in the blogging business, I still have no clue how that makes sense from a business perspective. I think these top tier influencers are paid by brands to attend, and that’s how they make it work. Maybe someday L’Oreal will hire me to attend. See…? Even at 45, I’m still putting NEW dreams out there. And, while I’m at it, I would like to create a convertible handbag… kind of like my old favorite Henri Bendel backpack. And, maybe a basics wardrobe too. Okay, I think I’m done now.
Let’s get to the goods!

I keep looking at this sweater and thinking … I know I can’t wear a regular bra with this and I know it’s not exactly the most practical sweater… but I LOVE IT!!!! The illusion panel is SO sexy and cool. I might have to buy it just to test it out. Alexander Wang has this over-sized longer version which would be great with skinny jeans and leggings and also cropped versions for skirts or high-rise jeans.
I finally caved and ordered this gorgeous vegan leather top in off-white by Nanushka. Remember when I talked about this Budapest-based brand in this video about leather?? I can’t wait to style this. I will most likely wear it with jeans to keep it casual, but I’m also eager to try it with my off-white silky midi skirt as well as my leopard-print midi skirt.
I’ve been searching for a camel dress that I can layer under and over and this just might be the one! I just ordered it and I will keep you posted, but I’m thinking of wearing blazers over the dress and pairing it with cool tall boots like you see on the model. This dress is by Aimee Song of Song of Style. She’s one of the most successful bloggers/YouTubers.
Here’s another piece that I inherently know is not the most practical purchase, but I can’t help that I’m in love with it! I LOVE the buckle detail on this Jonathan Simkhai sweater. The length is awesome for skinny jeans and leggings. I can also see this with a flowy dress or maxi and slouchy tall boots. You’ll be the coolest mom or grandmom in town in this sweater!! Who is brave enough to try it??
Can you stand it? Aren’t these the most gorgeous boots you’ve ever seen?? I have NO business buying stiletto tall boots and yet here I am staring longingly at these beauties. These will elevate any sweater/skirt pairing and think of how stunning they would be with a sweater dress.
