"Honey, it ain't from Target" Tuesday

I’ve been in something of a shopping dry spell.  I’m at the point in the budget cycle where when I try to use my AmEx card, I feel like I’m rolling the dice.  If it’s approved, its because me and my purchase were most certainly meant to be.  If not, it’s because it made me look fat and AmEx secretly knew this.  Lately, I’ve been laying off, however, and my AmEx card has been all like “whew”. 

But my bonus from work comes next week, so I’ve been making my list and checking it twice. 

First stop (after the obligatory contribution to savings, 401K, blah blah, blah).  J Brand.

(J Brand Houlihan Twill Cargo Pants – also in black & khaki - $231)

I haven’t tried these on yet so my dressing room experience may be “Oh hell no”, but hope springs eternal.

I have adored this Fiona Paxton necklace from afar for months.  It’s the perfect statement piece with, well, everything.

(Fiona Paxton Coco Zig Zag Necklace - $338)

I’ve always been a big fan of Joie, and I’m kinda digging their new line Joie Soft.  It looks cozy.  I love cozy.  I spend obscene amounts of money on cozy. 

(Soft Joie Griffith Asymmetrical Pocket Tank - $48)

And finish it all up with these crazy cute peep toe booties.  The heel is a foot-forgiving 3 inches.  The Boy is all on board with these but just because he’s tired of carrying my ass (it’s a subtle over the shoulder toss actually) when I get all whiny about my 4 inch-ers.

(Loeffler Randall Honey Open-Toe Cutout Booties - $550)

 Off to Florida! My hopes for this trip....more baseball, more Boy, less Nyquil.


  1. I would look like a hot mess in those pants.
    That necklace is gorg!
    I wouldn't spend more than $15 on that tank.
    I'd have to see the shoes on before I make my decision.
    Florida again! Have fun!

  2. ^^I'd look like a hot mess in those pants, too. Those are cute booties. Does your boy really carry you? Haha.

    Off topic, but did those poop drop things ever come? I'm dying to hear about your experiment.

  3. I'm going to find these pants and disprove the hot mess theory. If they look good on me - trust me, they'll look good on anybody.

    Lou - Yep the Boy actually carries me. I bitch, he throws me over his shoulder, I shriek and laugh hysterically. This usually happens in Vegas.

    Poof drops should be waiting for me when I get back from Florida! :) Giddy!

  4. Girl you have some expensive taste! Those are all fabulous pieces though!
