Fashion Finds Lately

I am not yet in the swing of this blogging in the new year thing, yet. Although, to be honest, I'm glad it's a new year. I'm ready to move on from last year.

2014 was awesome. But also sucked. So many ups and downs, there was a lot of personal stuff and events, which is why I am crossing my fingers for this year. I know there is a lot of stuff that we don't blog about, so if you had some rough parts of the year, I am there with you. But I hope we can move on, and I send lots of good thoughts everyone's way for the new year.

So, I've been trying to stay frugal throughout the quadrabillion sales going on, and I have been successful for the most part.

Actually, I was so overwhelmed by choices, that I hardly bought anything.

I found some destroyed denim which I had been looking for for a while, during American Eagle's sale.

These turned out to be just what I wanted - they've got holes in just the knees, and they are stretchy and soft. And they were only 30 bucks. They are great for the weekend when I can dress them up a little.

I also tried on a few other pairs, but they were a little too destroyed for me.
I got another pair of their sky high jeggings, and they are good so far. I found that the sizes vary a lot between the different styles and materials, so I have one size in the destroyed denim style, but I ended up switching sizes in the other jegging, because there was too much extra material.

My work uniform a variation of below: pants (jeggings, jeans, etc) and tops / layers. I'm even wearing my work badge. I'll give you a hint and tell you that in my badge picture I had my eyebrows waxed that day, and it's a constant reminder of why I don't get my eyebrows waxed anymore.

The only thing I purchased besides the jeans was a pair of boots on sale at Modcloth. They have my favorite selection of vegan boots, and they were on sale.

I've been looking for a pair of black boots, and these look like over-the-knee. I haven't gotten them yet, so I'm not sure about the fit.
Boots: Modcloth

Did you find any after Christmas sales?
Did you stick to your budget?


  1. Those boots look great, I hope they fit!! :) I love your third outfit, that purple is such a pretty color :)


  2. I love all these looks, especially the second one!

  3. We just got back from our holiday so I haven't been tempted yet, but my boyfriend wants to go the the mall today. He cleaned out a lot of his closet yesterday and apparently has nothing to wear today haha I don't really need anything so I might stay home, but probably not because I know he'll want my opinion. I like the jeans you chose. I used to have a pair of destroyed jeans that were perfect with just holes in the knees, but I wore them so much that they got destroyed to the point of being inappropriate haha

  4. Delias is having a huge sale since they are going out of business so I bought some summer dresses and some boots for my sister. The other sales have been tempting but I've been resisting so far!

    I love the last outfit, with the purple cardigan. Super cute!

  5. LOVE the boots! I bought similar ones in black from JustFab! I also love all of your looks, especially the third one :).

  6. I have been so good after christmas, I havent bought anything :) love those first jeans you got!
    fingers crossed 2015 is amazing for you girly!

  7. Super cute jeans. I hear nothing but good things about AE jeans. Everyone I know who buys them swears by them and won't ever buy anything else. I'm so insainly picky with my jeans I haven't found the perfect pair yet. There was this pair of maternity jeans but those don't count lol!

  8. Love all the looks. Those jeans are perfect on you. I understand bittersweet years so cheers to a better 2015!!

  9. I have been really, really trying hard to not shop with the sales going on.
    I love those jeans you ended up getting and the scarf you're wearing! Looks great!

  10. Back from our trip, back to blogging.. :) 2014 was an odd mix of awesome and awful. I don't even really know why. But I am also welcoming 2015 with open arms. Especially after our trip I feel inspired for the first time in a while! :) Still working on the goals though. We kept to our low budget for most of the winter and I am proud of us! Especially December! :) This year KC has big plans for our budget... I hope that it goes well. It would be so nice to have savings... you know like a responsible person... :) haha I bought a bunch of makeup/skincare stuff from 100% pure (eco, vegan, glutenfree) during black friday/cyber monday. Great deals. The primer was $10 instead of $28. score. I definitely bought 3. Other than that I didn't indulge in sale purchases... :) With Christmas money I bought a few things at Aerie that were on sale... a few at Target... which I think I might return some of... I'm not sure I will wear it. Proud of myself and looking forward to purging a bunch of useless stuff this year. And holy cow we just finished season 6 of Buffy... -Alexandra
