New to My Closet

January 31, 2013

During my winter break from teaching, I sold a good amount of items from my closet (thank you to those who purchased!), and I also spent a little too much time and money buying new items. I’ve been feeling kind of eh towards fashion and getting dressed up lately, so I figured looking at some new-to-me things may get my inspiration going, plus some of them are still on their way to me so I have to imagine! Hilariously, after making this little collage, I realized that I must have been seriously feeling pencil skirts, black, and pink. What can I say? When I find something I like, I really like it.


1. ASOS Curve Check Top with Step Hem – $33.29
2. Lane Bryant Belt Strap Tote – gifted to me for my 25th birthday 🙂
3. ASOS Curve Midi Skirt in Matte Shine – $20.81
4. Evans Pink Chiffon Shirt – $49.50
5. Anna Scholz for SimplyBe Print Dress – $99
6. nicole by Nicole Miller Faux Leather-Sleeve Sweater – $14
7. ASOS Curve (Oxblood) Midi Skirt in Jersey – $29.96
8. Evans Black Chiffon Shirt – $49.50
9. ASOS Curve (Black) Midi Skirt in Jersey – $29.96

    WELL. I got my boots in the mail! Love, love, love them. ❤ I ordered two clearance dresses from ASOS. I can't figure out their sizing at all. Does it tend to run a little large?

      Yay! So glad that you do! Yea I think the stretchy pieces, at least, run large. I buy the US 22s all the time and I’m definitely not that size. I’ve never tried their more structured pieces.

    Can’t wait to see all these on!

    Great minds think alike! I have that Anna Scholz Simply Be dress on my Spring/Summer must have list!

    How many sizes do you buy smaller? I am a 20 or 22 – what size should I buy in leggings and tees? Help! Thanks – love your site!

      Joey, where at? Asos? I typically buy largest size there but it seems their dresses run large and most else runs true to size.
