what I'm buying

After the holidays, I try to cut back on shopping and hold out until spring. I made it through all of January, but come February I purchased a few items that I can confidently say have earned their cost per wear. 

What started out as a quick search on Net-A-Porter for a luncheon outfit, lead me to buying these perfect black cropped trousers. I wasn't sure if they would live up to their investment, but they do, and they have quickly become my go-to pant. They're the perfect evening bottom with my favorite heels, but they also make any daytime outfit look pulled together when you want to be but would rather stay in your pajamas. Yes, they're comfortable too.

My next purchase was something that I had been eyeing for months: the infamous plastic bag. I called up my SA at Céline (and we exchanged many, many texts) to add myself to the never-ending waitlist. Luck was on my side because I was able to get the last one before the next shipment, which from what I heard is going to be even smaller than the first. Anyway. It's definitely a trendy bag (and a little humorous, which I kind of love), but I think it's important to remember that some trends are worth investing in, as long as you know you'll love it just as much, if not more, when the trend recycles. That was this bag for me, especially given Phoebe's departure. While I was in store, I picked up the gold alphabet pendant and chain (and the jersey string!) too that I had also been eyeing. I'm so glad I did because I can't stop wearing it, and I love alternating between the gold chain and the navy jersey — even when I'm wearing leggings and a sweatshirt around the house.
