Latest Good Buys (with an OOTD)...and a giveaway!!

Happy Tuesday all!  And just for the record...T-minus 8 days till Christmas!!!

I always love hearing what items people have recently bought and loved so I thought I'd play along.  Here are a few items I've recently acquired and would recommend you check out:

I have fought the idea of wearing pointed toe pumps for years...I finally I gave in and grabbed my first pair.  I found these at Target and thought that was a good place to start since I wasn't sure how much I'd like them.  You know what?  I LOVE them!  I've been converted.  These were full price at my Target when I purchased them but for $40 you can't complain.  I also found the wine colored version for only $19.99 on sale the day I picked these up so those came home with me too.  They look much more expensive than they are, which I love!  I don't know that I would recommend them for someone who wears pumps all-day, every day, but for the occasional wear I say go for it!

I have been wanting a solid, heavier gold chain link necklace for a while now and am so excited I found this.  I grabbed it for 50% off on Black Friday but you can still grab one for 40% until December 23rd with code NAUGHTYORNICE on Lydell's website.  It's beautiful, fantastic quality and has a good weight to it.  It also looks amazing on.  

Original Polyvore set for this look can be found HERE

I wore it on Sunday to church and I think it was a great finishing piece to the look. 
Definitely recommend!

Last but not least is my new favorite toy:

I recently started a business and am constantly taking my laptop back and forth from home to work.  I desperately needed a new bag that could hold my computer as well as double as my purse.  I also knew i wanted a black bag because the black purse I had previously been carrying was from Forever 21 about 6 years ago.  Time to move on.  I had a ton of rewards points from the Gap family to use so I was able to use those, along with a 35% discount at Piperlime for this fantastic bag.  It retails for just under $500 but I grabbed it for under $200 with all my discounts....I think it ended up being like 65% off when all was said and done.  It's my early Christmas present to myself from my husband. =)  I absolutely love it.  It's definitely an investment piece but one that I will use for YEARS to come.  I mean seriously, I use bags until they're completely worn out.  Remember...Forever 21 bag for 6 years...really, it's on it's last leg.  Highly recommend this gorgeous bag!

  1. Love the bag. I just can't transition over to pointy shoes, but this is a good bargain. I love my round toe Ann Taylor perfect pumps.

    1. I know...I thought round toe was the only way to go too, but I honestly love the way the pointy ones look now...miracle!! lol

  2. I had those shoes in my cart and am kicking myself for putting them back!

    1. You never know...they could still be floating around!
