funktional power up velvet blazer from nasty gal

frye 8R harness boot

what are my absolute essentials? hmmm that would be black ankle boots and blazers.
well, this whole new lifestyle i have adopted - saving for great "investment" pieces over buying hoards of inexpensive things - has allowed me to purchase these two bad boys.
of course i slip and still cannot pass on a good deal at work or at forever 21 (and shhhh...i bought the blazer and boots with % off discounts/gift cards), but i couldn't be happier that these on their way to my home.

p.s. liz, you are killing it as a nasty gal model.

I have loved that velvet jacket too! If I didn't have the pointy shoulder Zara one, I'd probably be all over that it!

ps. Ack! Sounds like it's really cold where you are. That probably means it's moving my way : (

i love that you have a new shopping mentality. it's hard to save for those items but in the end the cost-per-wear totally makes up for it & quality goods always last longer :)
the harness boot is awesome

Excellent choices. The basics always end up being the most exciting in the long run anyway... the thrill lasts so much longer... like love vs. lust. ha ha.

I totally get what you mean - I used to search for and spend on many many inexpensive things (which in many cases were also low in quality), but now I'm more inclined to save up and only spend on more expensive but "worthy" (or as you call it, "investment") pieces.

And on that note... great picks here! :)
